How to Change Clothes in Pokémon Sword and Shield

In Pokémon Sword and Shield, you can buy clothing and alter your character’s appearance whenever you like. Here’s how to change clothes.

You’ll acquire new pieces of apparel as you play through Pokémon Sword and Shield. Whether these be new hats, glasses, t-shirts or shoes, you’ll amass a pretty big wardrobe eventually. You can also buy new clothes in clothing stores, which you’ll find in most towns.

However, there’s no option in your menu to change your clothes. You can only do this at certain places.


Most clothes stores in Pokémon Sword and Shield have a changing room. Even if you don’t buy an outfit from that particular store, you’re free to use the changing room. It’s here you need to visit in order to change your outfit.

To change your outfit, simply walk into a changing room and you’ll be presented with a list of all your items of clothing. Use left and right on the d-pad to toggle through each type of garment, selecting the item you want from each list.

Once you’re done, back out of the menu, and you’ll be asked if you want to change your character’s appearance. That’s it – your new outfit is complete!
