Dappled Grove is one of 17 zones found in Pokémon Sword and Shield’s vast Wild Area. It is located between Watchtower Ruins to the north and Rolling Fields to the east.
The dimly lighted grove is densely populated with surrounding trees and vegetation. Its eastern edge borders West Lake Axewell. A Watt trader, situated in the southwest, lets players exchange their Watts for items such as Technical Records (TR), Wishing Pieces, and Timer Balls. In addition, the Watt Trader lets players compete in the Rotom Rally.

Version exclusive Pokémon found in the grove are Lombre, Growlithe, Lotad, and Ludicolo for Pokémon Shield. Nuzleaf, Seedot, Vulpix, and Shiftry are available for Pokémon Sword players.
