Where to Find Aegislash

If you're looking for where to find Aegislash, you'll find the various methods listed down below, along with any notes or special locations. This should help you figure out how to get Aegislash in Pokémon Sword & Shield. (Currently this does not show most "strong" static encounters or Max Raid Battles.)

Special Ways to Get Aegislash

There's also an Aegislash that sometimes appears, depending on the weather condition, to the west of Hammerlocke in the Wild Area, over in Hammerlocke Hills in the direction of the Lake of Outrage. (It is more commonly a Doublade in that spot instead.)

Getting Aegislash By Evolution

Evolves from Doublade by using a Dusk Stone on it. You can get Dusk Stones pretty easily by talking to the either of the Digging Duo by the Pokémon Nursery in the Bridge Field part of the Wild Area.
