Send Your Pokemon Out On Quests With Poke Jobs And Rotomi In Pokemon Sword And Shield

Apart from the new rivals and new Pokemon, a brand new gameplay feature for Pokemon Sword & Shield was revealed today in the Japanese version of the August 7th Pokemon presentation.

The biggest new feature is called Poke Jobs, and allows you to send your Pokemon on various quests or jobs. These jobs reward both experience points and items, with different Pokemon being better suited to some jobs over others.

Another new feature is Rotomi, a helper that not only assists with Poke Jobs, but also a number of other tasks such as the lottery. Currently, it is not clear what relation this Rotomi has to the Rotom Phone and the Rotom Dex.

You can check out the new features in action in the trailer below, along with the full details from the Pokemon website:

In the Galar region, it is very common for people and Pokémon to work together. Many corporations and universities request the help of Pokémon through what are known as Poké Jobs.

You can check available Poké Jobs at the Rotomi in Pokémon Centers, and you’ll also be able to send Pokémon from your Boxes directly to any job you accept!

The Pokémon you send will help out with the job, and the experience will even help them grow. There are many different Poké Jobs available. You’ll find that certain Pokémon types are suited for specific jobs, too. Helping out for a long time or sending as many Pokémon as you can on a job can also net some good results. You might even receive some rare items!

  • There are many places requesting the help of Pokémon, including corporations and universities.
  • You’ll choose the Pokémon you want to send to the Poké Job from your Boxes.
  • Each Pokémon sent to a Poké Job will come back having grown from the experience!
  • They’ll receive rewards like Exp. Points or base points, and how much they get will depend on factors like how long they work and their types!


You can accept jobs from the Rotomi you can find in every Pokémon Center around the Galar region. Rotomi have many different features aside from Poké Jobs, too—you can access your Boxes or even have a go at the Loto-ID!

You can find Rotomi in any Pokémon Center in the Galar region.

It has many features, such as the Loto-ID.
