There are plenty of rare Pokemon to try and find in Sword and Shield but they don’t come harder to find than Deino and Zweilous. We know its exact spawn location and where to find its powerful final evolution Hydreigon as well.

These fan favorites are exclusive to Pokemon Sword, however, so Shield players will have to rely on trades to get hold of Deino and co. There are other species which are exclusive to each of Sword and Shield as well.

The Galar region is full of brand new species to catch but Pokemon fans are a nostalgic bunch and there’s just something satisfying about catching an old favorite. Deino was released in Gen 5 so it was first available in the Pokemon Black and White games.

The Lake of Outrage is marked by the red arrow, just under Hammerlocke Hills…

Spawn location

The Lake of Outrage plays host to lots of powerful and rare Pokemon and one of these is none other than Deino itself. This is the only place you’ll be able to encounter the dual dark and dragon-type, too.

If you didn’t know the Lake of Outrage is one of several locations within the Wild Area. It can be found in the upper-left hand corner of the vast expanse of land that covers the center of the Galar region.

Larvitar is another version exclusive that spawns solely in the Lake of Outrage. The popular Gen 2 Pokemon spawns there 5% of the time which appears common to Deino’s super rare 2%. It can be found in both the overworld and in long grass.

What weather can you catch Deino in?

If the 2% wasn’t tricky enough, Deino only spawns in one particular weather condition — in the rain. If you’re lucky enough to encounter it then you’ll find it between level 50 and 52. That means if its sunny, snowing or even a sandstorm then that 2% chance of spawning goes all the way down to 0%.

Evolving into Hydreigon

While Deino is one of the more beloved species of Pokemon, its likely you’ll be looking for Hydreigon. Evolving it into Zweilous won’t take long at all. In fact, it will evolve as soon as you increase it just one level because it evolves at level 50 anyway.

Both Zweilous and Deino can be found in the wild, albeit in different weather conditions…

You’ll have to be a little more patient for Hydreigon, however. Zweilous only evolves at level 64, so you’ll have a minimum of 12 levels to gain.

You can also get Hydreigon by finding Zweilous, which is also exclusive to the Lake of Outrage. It can only be found in the thunderstorm weather condition.

Zweilous also spawns between level 50 and 52 though, also just 2% of the time, so there’s no real advantage to finding it ahead of Deino.

There you have it, the only place to find Deino. Good luck finding it because it is one of the rarest species in Pokemon Sword. Trading aside, it could be one of the stumbling blocks in your quest to complete the Galar Pokedex.

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?”

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.
