Hidden Grottos are going to return in Pokémon Fused Sword & Shield!
If you haven't played Pokemon Black 2 or White 2, Hidden Grottos are areas in those games that can be accessed by finding 2 connected trees that a text icon will pop up telling you if you want to crawl in. In the Hidden Grottos you can get either Pokémon, Items or Hidden Items. However, the Pokémon that you can get from the Hidden Grottos had Hidden abilities that you could get by regeneration of the said Pokémon, Item or Hidden items. Which is 256 steps to have it possibly regenerate by 5%. You can increase this percentage by buying Power Passages that would increase this percentage by how much a specific area will regenerate.
In Pokémon Fused Sword & Shield however, the Hidden Grottos tie into the story of the Fusionmon's taking over the Galar Region. As within the Hidden Grottos their will be Fusionmon that haven't been influenced by any of the Fusionmon that're evil, and are considered wild pokémon. Also, just like with Hidden Grottos before, some of the Fusionmon will have hidden abilities of the Pokémon they're fused with. Down below are just a few of the Fusionmon you can catch and see evolve. Going to be heavily inspired by the Pokémon Fusion Generator 2 on Patreon by Tepeal.
Completing the main story will also unlock Hidden Grottos that can only be accessed by completing the main story and have within them Fusionmon Legendaries. With although some of them being Fusionmon that're Legendary and Legendary, there are some legendary Fusionmon of Legendary and Normal Pokémon. And yes, you can also see these ones evolve as well.
There will be also different types of Grottos that're placed throughout the Galar Region:For e.g. a cold, Icey cave hidden Inside an Icey glacier, A poisonous and thorny Vine and branched covered one, and one that'll be surrounded by fallen trees, logs, and branches. Each with their own temperatures and climates that'll effect the way Fusionmon behave in the Amie as well. For example if you bring a Fusionmon that was in a cold Icey Hidden Grotto and bring it to an warm, humid area they won't necessarily like it and will start getting sweaty by the humidity. Works the same visa versa, if you bring one from a humid/warm area or Hidden Grotto and bring it to a naturally cold area they'll start to shiver and try to cuddle up Against the player in the Amie.
Items include not only potions but also some Pokemon related items such as move powering items, leveling and sellable items such as Nuggets, Rare Candies and Stardust, and very rarely Elemental Plates.
There are even some side tasks during the main story and post game that'll ask to search for them a specific Fusionmon or item in the Hidden Grottos for completion. But have no worry though, there's no requirements for regeneration in the Hidden Grottos this time. However, the Fusionmon within the Hidden Grottos are hiding in both the grasses, cracks and longs in the Grottos. Not only do you get potions, holdable items and such from completing these side tasks, you also get a chance to get an evolution item as well.
More new or returning features coming to Pokémon Fused Sword & Shield with Fusionmon that'll help you along your journey to take back the Galar Region from the evil Villainmon!
