A Watt Trader in Pokémon Sword and ShieldSource: iMore

Whether you're the new Galar Champion or not quite there, Technical Records (TRs) are useful items for every Pokémon trainer. While Technical Records do look similar to Technical Machines (TMs) since they're both discs (TMs are light-colored, while TRs are dark-colored), TRs are one-time use items that will teach a new move to a Pokémon. TRs also teach stronger moves than TMs, so they're actually well worth the time to get if there is a certain move you want.

In this guide, we're going to tell you where you can find TRs, as well as what every single TR in the game does and how much it will cost you.

Where can you find TRs?

Find a Watt Trader for a plethora of goods, including TRsSource: iMore

You can find TRs in The Wild Area through Watt Traders, who will have different items for sale each day, and TRs (and any other items they have on hand) will cost you Watts. If you don't know what the Watt Traders look like, just keep an eye out for the fellows in a white and black outfit with a bunch of Pokéballs hanging on their belt. They also have sporty sunglass shades and a white baseball cap.

You'll find the most amount of Watt Traders in close proximity to each other in the southern, bottom part of The Wild Area. The middle section has the fewest amount of Watt Traders, and there are a handful of them in the upper, northern part as well. But if you come across any of them while running around The Wild Area, make sure to check in with them to see what they have, as their stock rotates out often.

If you're wondering how to get Watts, just check for Raid Dens, which are little rock formations that are glowing with energy and can even have a light beam emitting out of them, which is an indicator for Max Raid Battles.

TRs can also be rewarded from Max Raid Battles, though it's not always guaranteed. The Max Raid Battle also determines the type of TR you'll receive. For example, if you're looking for Stealth Rock, you'll want to make sure you battle a Rock-type Pokémon in a Max Raid Battle.

What are all the TRs available in the game?
