Pokemon Sword and Shield‘s Galar Region offers a whole host of different locations in which specific species can be found and if you’re looking for Galarian Weezing’s spawn locations, you’ve come to the right place. 

The complete set of eighth-generation PokeDex was revealed on November 15 with the release of Game Freak’s brand new video games, with some players picking up Shield and others opting for Sword.

While some Pokemon are only available to catch exclusively on one, or the other, of those two titles, good news for fans is that you can grab yourself Weezing’s brand new form on both of them – if you know where to look.

Many of Pokemon Sword & Shield’s strongest offerings can be found in the Wild Area, but can you encounter Weezing there?

Where to find Galarian Weezing

Weezing, as many players will already be aware, is one of the original 151 Pokemon that kicked things off for the franchise back in 1995. But, in the Galar Region, it looks very different indeed.

Adapting to its new surroundings, what used to be solely a poison-type is now actually a cross between poison and fairy. Yet, fairy isn’t really the word many would use to describe the way it looks, as its Galarian form appears to resemble something like a chimney or bong this time around.

The best place to catch yourself a Galarian Weezing is deep into the Slumbering Weald point of interest, where its overworld rarity is 50%. Aside from that, the chances of finding one of these somewhere else is much slimmer.

Pokemon / NintendoSlumbering Weald is a forest found to the south in the Galar Region – home to many Galarian Weezings.

Other spawn locations for Weezing in Sword and Shield include the Lake of Outrage, where there’s a 13% chance of encountering the Pokemon, according to

It can also be seen randomly wandering around East Lake Axwell – a location really useful for those looking to get ahold of Rare Candies. More information on that here.

Smash Melee star Ludwig Ahgren sent a Pokemon card Twitch stream into a meltdown when he pulled a 1st Edition Dragonite worth up to $10k. The gaming pro scored the rare collectible after streamer Trainwreckstv gave him the pack.

Pokemon cards have taken over platforms such as YouTube and Twitch as viewers flock to see their favorite personalities chase after the rarest Nintendo collectibles.

A live Trading Card Game box opening hosted by streamer Mizkif and his org One True King went off the rails on November 22 when Smash pro Ludwig scored a rare Dragonite that could have been Trainwrecks’.

Ludwig scores rare Pokemon card from 1999

The Pokemon TCG has seen a major explosion in value in 2020. Cards once traded for nothing on school playgrounds decades ago can now sell for as much as a house. The hobby has also become a major hit on sites like Twitch, with streamers buying sealed booster boxes from the 90s to open live for viewers.

On November 22, Twitch star Mizkif broke open 1st Edition sealed packs from the 1999 Fossil set. Those attending the event lost their minds when pro gamer Ludwig scored a 1st Edition Dragonite after streamer Trainwreckstv gave his pack to him.

The moment went viral due to the Twitch personality’s generosity backfiring. “Dude I swear to God if I said no to this pack to be fair and nice and its a good pack I want it back. Ludgwig, if this is good it’s my pack. If it’s bad, it’s your pack,” he exclaimed moments before the card was pulled. Unfortunately, the booster he passed on contained the exact rare holographic he was chasing after.

After the excitement settled, the group felt bad for Train’s incredibly bad luck. Although the popular Twitch star wasn’t too bitter about it, laughing it off on Twitter. If nothing else, he should be applauded for his generosity.

According to recent sales of the item, a 1st Edition Dragonite can sell anywhere from $8k to 9.7k depending on the grading. Luckily for Ludwig, the item looked incredibly pristine, giving him a good chance at a PSA 10 grading.
