Pokémon Sword and Shield: How to Change Uniform

Tired of wearing the same default uniform in all of your stadium battles?


In Pokémon Sword and Pokemon Shield, the gym battle experience has changed tremendously. Now, instead of facing a gym leader in a private venue, you fight in front of thousands of cheering spectators.

Adopting Great Britain’s love of stadium sports and the enthusiasm of the fans, Pokémon Sword and Shield has also brought in the merchandising side by offering replica uniforms.


However, the one thing that players just can’t work out is how to change their uniform for the gym battles at Galar’s stadiums.

Unfortunately, there is one very simple answer to this pressing question: you can’t change your uniform for gym battles in Pokémon Sword and Shield.

Perhaps being able to change your uniform will be a feature that the developers introduce when the big new expansion DLCs come to the game later this year.

Why can’t I change my uniform for gym battles?

In the game, you are given replica uniforms whenever you defeat a gym leader, and you can buy other Pokémon type uniform sets from the uniform shops in each stadium.

Other type uniforms like the Poison Uniform, Ghost Uniform, Ice Uniform, Bug Uniform, Psychic Uniform, and Steel Uniform cost 18,000 to buy at the in-stadium uniform shops.

You can wear these replica uniforms in their entirety while roaming around or you can just wear certain pieces of each set. When it comes to gym battles, though, your character will automatically change back into the default white with grey stripes uniform that has red and blue bands.

The only aspect of the uniform that you do have a say over is the number, but once you pick your number, you can’t change it to a different one. So, make sure that you pick your lucky number as it’ll be the one on the back of your uniform for every gym battle to come.

When you put on your default gym uniform in Sword and Shield, your character will change every aspect of their clothing with one exception: the glasses. If your character wears glasses before getting changed, they’ll also wear them in the gym battle.

To the disappointment of many players, and despite the huge range of customisation options in Sword and Shield, you can’t change your uniform for gym battles.
