Finding and Catching Skrelp in the Isle of Armor DLC in Pokémon Shield and Sword

In Pokémon Sword and Shield, Skrelp can basically found nearly anywhere in the vast ocean that is all around the Isle of Armor. However, it has a mere five percent chance of spawning in the overworld. It is advisable to take along your Rottam bike to go water-gliding across the vast ocean surrounding the Isle of Armor. Now keep going around until you finally manage to encounter Skrelp. Make sure you have plenty of Poke Balls and Berries in store so that you don’t let one escape.

It is important to note that the weather does not affect whatsoever on the spawning rate of Skrelp. After catching it, you will notice that it has the Adaptability, Poison Point, and Poison Touch abilities. Also, players who have the Sword version of the game will encounter another new Pokémon known as Dragalge, in this same area and with the same rate of spawning. Trading these new unique Pokémon among yourselves is an idea worth considering.
