Pokemon Sword & Shield Gothita is a new Psychic type Pokemon added in the game that you can find and catch. Well, you can catch Gothita in Pokemon Sword, if you’re in the correct location, and with the right weather conditions. As for the Pokemon Shield Gothita, things get even more complicated. With that in mind, and without further ado, we’re going to show you how to get and where to find Gothita in Pokemon Sword & Shield.
How to Get Gothita in Pokemon Sword & Shield?
To get Gothita in Pokemon Sword, you’ll have to look for it in Giant’s Cap, the Wild Area southwest of Hammerlocke. Check out the images below to see where Giant’s Cap is on the map. Anyways, Gothita appears in the first two areas of Giant’s Cap, and only when it’s foggy (for more info on that, check out our How to Get Fog in Wild Area guide). Fortunately, once you have the location and weather you need, it’s not hard to find a Gothita. It’s a fairly frequent spawn, so you won’t have to fruitlessly run in circles before a wild one appears.
To get a Gothita in Pokemon Shield, you’ll have to trade with somebody that has already caught one in Shield. Yup; Gothita doesn’t appear in Pokemon Shield at all; the only way to get your hands on it is to trade. It’s one of those Pokemon that Nintendo uses as an excuse to sell two virtually identical games as completely different products, but I digress. Don’t forget that you’ll also have Pokemon that the folks playing Sword won’t have, such as Sableye. Use it to your advantage.
Gothita is a Psychic type Pokemon, and stays so throughout its evolutions. Speaking off, on level 32, Gothita evolves into Gothorita, and then Gothitelle on level 41. Interestingly enough, we found all three of these in the same Wild Area, mere minutes apart. So, yeah; keep that in mind, those of you planning to trade your way to glory.
