Where to Find Palkia

If you're looking for where to find Palkia, 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 Palkia in Pokémon Sword & Shield. (Currently this does not show most "strong" static encounters or Max Raid Battles.)
Exclusive to Pokémon Shield

Palkia is exclusive to Pokémon Shield, so if you are playing Pokémon Sword, you will need to trade with someone playing Pokémon Shield in order to obtain it for your Pokédex.

Special Ways to Get Palkia

Catchable as a legendary boss Pokémon during Dynamax Adventures in Crown Tundra (DLC), level 70. Exclusive to Pokémon Shield, but can be found in any version in multiplayer Dynamax Adventures if at least one player is playing Shield. Only one of this Pokémon can be caught and taken with you in Dynamax Adventures per game save. Keep this in mind if attempting to get a Shiny version of this Pokémon! (Catching this Pokémon but refusing to take it with you after the Dynamax Adventure is complete will still allow you to try again in the future, with a new chance of it being Shiny.)
