Some Pokemon are a little pesky to evolve in Pokemon Sword and Shield, whether or not it's a matter of finding a particular thing for them to hold, or whether they have to be leveling up at a particular time of day. While we reckon it's fairly easy to figure out when it's night versus day in the game, some other times might not be as easy. If you've been wondering when is dusk in Pokemon Sword and Shield, we can help you out.

When is Dusk in Pokemon Sword and Shield

One thing to remember about time in Pokemon Sword and Shield is that it matches the time of your Nintendo Switch's system. Sure, you can fiddle with the date and time settings of your console if you're wanting to speed up the passage of time or if you're just an early riser who wants to catch something that only spawns at night. We don't like messing too much with those settings but hey, we definitely won't judge you if you want to.

So, you want to know when to actually wind your clock to if you're wanting to evolve a Pokemon that requires it to be Dusk to power up. One such Pokemon is a Milcery, if you're wanting to turn it into a Rainbow Swirl Alcremie. We've got a separate guide on all of the different Alcremie forms as well as their evolutionary requirements that we've relinked here for your convenience.

However, back to the question at hand: when is Dusk in Pokemon Sword and Shield? For all intents and purposes, where dusk is referred to, the game means 7pm. That's 1900 hours. It's going to have to be 7pm on your System clock for anything Dusk-related to happen in the game. So, if you're someone who wants to turn time forward or back for an evolution mechanic that happens at Dusk, that's the time you're going to have to use.

Now that you know when is Dusk in Pokemon Sword and Shield, you shouldn't be struggling to tell the time anymore if you've got a critter that has some time-sensitive evolution requirements.
