[SWSH] Recommended Pokemons for the story mode
1. Starter Pokemons (But no Grass-type)
- Starters are always a good choice for the story mode but as always, grass type is not a good choice.
Grookey only learns Normal and Grass-type attacks while leveling up, this makes so hard to beat Gym Leaders and etc.
2. Weezing (Galarian Form)
You can find Koffings in the early-game. If your Koffing evolved into Galarian Weezing, you can teach Heat Wave by Move Reminder.
Galarian Weezing has powerful Abilities (Both Levitate & Neutralizing Gas - If the Pokémon with Neutralizing Gas is in the battle, the effects of all Pokémon's Abilities will be nullified or will not be triggered.), has only 1 or 2 weakness type.
Not sure that Galarian Weezing will be also good in Battle, but surely this is one of the best choices for the story mode.
Drednaw, new Galar Pokemon and Ace pokemon of Nessa.
You can find Chewtle, the Pokemon before the evolution so early in the game (Route 2) and it evolves into Drednaw in Lv. 22.
Drednaw learns many useful moves by level up (Jaw Lock, Liquidation, Head Smash), TM (Rock Slide, Revenge, Razor Shell, Ice Fang) and more powerful attacks by TR.
Once you have Drednaw, he will help you a lot until the end.
But always beware of Grass-Type! This guy will take x4 damage from Grass Attacks.
4. Darmanitan (Galarian Form)
(No image for him yet sorry!)
Darumaka, the Pokemon before the evolution can only be found in Sword. You can find Darumaka in almost the end-game. (Route 8)
Use Ice Stone to evolve Darumaka into Galarian Darmanitan. This Pokemon has Gorilla Tactics Ability, which is the same as Choice Band item. (When this item is being held, the user's Attack is increased by 50%, but the Pokémon is limited to using the first attack it uses until it is withdrawn from battle.)
Galarian Darmanitan learns most of the powerful Ice-type moves such as Icicle Crash, Ice Punch. (Superpower with level up.) And Rock Slide, even Fire Puch & Fire Fang with TM.
You'll get this guy in the late-game but he will never disappoint you.

“...So long as I get somewhere.” ~ Alice

Caught a TrapInch this evening and it just wandered over to me. Definitely the oddest thing I’ve found today.
