Obtaining Watts is incredibly important in Pokemon Sword & Shield’s Isle of Armor expansion, especially if you want to kit out Mustard’s Dojo with the latest gadgets. Here are all the best ways to farm Watts in the latest DLC. 

Watts may be easier to farm than the Isle of Armor’s illusive Armorite Ore, but you’ll still need to farm a lot of this resource if you wish to get your hands on Sword & Shield’s Technical Record moves (TRs).

Fortunately, farming Watts in Pokemon Isle of Armor is incredibly easy and takes only a few minutes. Make sure you follow this guide to find out how you can upgrade Mustard’s Dojo in just a flash. 

Visit Pokemon Dens

Max Raid Dens are still one of the best ways to get Watts.

Just like in Sword & Shield’s based game, the Isle of Armor expansion is brimming with plenty of Pokemon Dens for you to find. These dens not only have the potential to house incredibly strong and rare creatures, they also give you the opportunity to collect some extra Watts. 

Max Raid Pokemon Dens yield the most amount of Watts (2000) and can be distinguished by the bright red beam that emanates from them, while normal dens faintly glow red and simply yield 200 Watts. To claim this resource, simply head over to any den and press the A button. 

Each Pokemon Den will reset whenever the date changes, so consider changing your Switch’s date/time settings if you wish to farm Watts without having to wait until the next day. 

Pay Digging Pa a visit

Digging Pa can net you plenty of Watts if you have enough Armorite Ore.

Digging Pa and his excavating partner (Digging Ma) are two new NPCs that feature in Pokemon Sword and Shield’s Isle of Armor expansion, so you’ll need to buy the DLC to use this method. This incredibly useful character can be found outside the cave entrance in the Training Lowlands. 

He will dig you up some Watts in exchange for seven pieces of Armorite Ore, so make sure you’ve obtained this tough as nails material from Max Raid battles or by taking your chances with Digging Ma. This method can net you a lot of Watts in just a few seconds, but Digging Pa’s shovel can break early on, making this method a risk vs reward option. 

However, if you’re willing to play the odds or have a lot of spare Armorite Ore, then this method can be extremely rewarding. After all, Mustard’s Dojo upgrades don’t exactly come cheap!

So there you have it, two very quick ways to increase your amount of Watts in the Isle of Armor Expansion. Make sure you check out the rest of our Pokemon Sword & Shield guides if you’re struggling to find a specific Pokemon or wish to gain a competitive edge.

The Pokemon Trading Card Game hobby was rocked in November when a man rediscovered his mind-blowing complete collection of the rare 1999 Base Set. The fan has stacks of every character, including hundreds of Charizards.

Despite releasing decades ago, the Pokemon TCG has seen a major explosion in value in 2020. Cards once traded on playgrounds and stuffed into 90s children’s binders are now selling for as much as a sports car. 

A man went viral after discovering their collection may be one of the most complete sets to ever exist. The fan’s unfathomable amount of rare collectibles could actually have an impact on the future of the hobby’s prices.

Pokemon fan discovers TCG collection is worth millions

Pokemon cards have never been more popular this year as the collectible hobby has now even taken over platforms such as YouTube and Twitch. Celebrities such as former rapper Logic are dropping hundreds of thousands of dollars to scoop up the rare Nintendo items. 

On November 22, a video went viral online of a man showing off his mind-blowing collection that has many collectors turning their heads. “Literally got all of my Pokemons stuff out of the loft from my recent move,” YouTuber PokeMans Alex explained before showing off his astonishing collection.

Holding up a stack of rare holographic cards from the 1999 base set, the fan exclaimed, “As you can see they are mint, and have not been touched for so long.” The TCG collector then revealed his unprecedented number of Charizards. “I don’t know if you are ready for this,” he warned, before holding up a stack of 111 cards of the rare starter ‘mon.

To put that into perspective, in October a PSA graded 10 of the same item is now selling for $30k alone. The content creator emptied over seven binders on his table to reveal a 1999 base set that was not only complete, but also had stacks of over 50 of the same card for every single character.“I’m ready to put all of these away back in the safe where they are now gonna stay,” he said.

Veteran Pokemon card YouTuber PokeRev reacted to the video on November 26 and exclaimed, “Did you open all these packs as a kid? It’s just an insane amount of holo cards. When we were kids, just to get a couple holos from the base set was really good. But to have thousands is insane!”

Other famous collectors such as British rapper Randolph commented, “Unreal mate.” Gaming YouTuber Ali A wrote, “How did you originally collect SO many cards!? Are you looking to sell any of them?”

Other famous Pokemon collectors took notice of the insane set.

At the time of writing, it’s unclear just how much the YouTuber’s incredible Pokemon haul is worth. None of the collectibles have actually been looked at by professional grading companies PSA or Beckett. And the majority of its value revolves around its condition and score.

A set of this magnitude is unprecedented and could have a severe impact on what TCG cards are worth in the future. A big factor in an item’s selling price hinges on it having a low population. PokeMans Alex’s collection could soon flood the market should he decide to get things graded.
