Here’s Every Poke Job Type Requirement in Pokemon Sword and Shield

Last Edited:

Jump to:

In the Galar Region, it’s common for people and Pokemon to work together to the point where you can send Pokemon out on jobs to earn XP.

To access Poke Jobs go to a Poke Center and approach the Rotomi. Then select Check Poke Jobs.

You can send any Pokemon out on a job but you want to send ones with the preferred type for the job. It will be clearly labeled on the job listing. However, sometimes the job is about something other than Pokemon type (see Cute Pokemon for Cute Poke Jobs towards the bottom of the page).

Poke Jobs are labeled as taking “A little while,” “very short,” “short,” “long,” “very long,” “half day,” and “whole day” but that’s pretty vague. Here’s what those times actually mean.

Poke Job Time Actual, Real Life Hours
A little while 1 hour
Very short 2 hours
Short 3 hours
Long 4 hours
Very long 8 hours
Half day 12 hours
Whole day 24 hours

You can also get items from Pokemon jobs! From ingredients to cash to rare items. All the more reason to send Pokemon on jobs.

Once you unlock the Hammerlocke University Seminars that increase your Pokemon’s base HP after getting your 4th Gym Badge. This means Poke Jobs can be used to EV train! For more on EV Training be sure to check out our complete EV training guide.

How to Get the Best Job Rating[edit]

There are 3 possible job ratings. Here’s how you get the highest job rating to get the most XP and unlock the best rewards!

  • Job Completed!
  • Good Job!
  • Great Job!

To get Great Job! send as many Pokemon to the job as possible, send the correct type of Pokemon. A lot of the jobs will specify what type they want but some jobs are vague about it. Instead of guessing, jump to our table at the end of this page to find out what these vague job listings are actually looking for.

Not all jobs have the same payoff. In general, the more stars the better but below are specifics. Keep in mind you can get Ingredients that can be used to Cook Curry through Pokemon Jobs. You can unlock more Pokemon jobs by earning more badges. For details, look at the table below. These rewards were found in the Official Pokemon Guide.
