Where to Find Shiftry

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

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

Getting Shiftry By Evolution

Evolves from Nuzleaf by using a Leaf Stone on it. You can get Leaf Stones pretty easily by talking to the Stamina brother of the Digging Duo by the Pokémon Nursery in the Bridge Field part of the Wild Area. There's also a hidden Leaf Stone in Turffield.
