CaptureSight is a Nintendo Switch homebrew to view Pokemon Sword and Shield data while playing Sword and Shield. CaptureSight comes as both an overlay and an applet.


  • View Pokemon species, attacks, IVs, etc. for
    • Wild Pokemon
    • In-Trade Pokemon
    • Raid Pokemon
    • Party Pokemon
    • Box Pokemon
  • View all Active Dens
    • Current seed for Raid RNG
    • The number of advances until a Shiny Pokemon
    • Species of a den (has a bug with event Pokemon - see below)
    • Stars of a den
  • Find the raid seed that created a Pokemon
    • Join a trade or raid with a person who doesn't have custom firmware and use CaptureSight to get their raid seed
    • View upcoming IVs for any den or Pokemon raid seed
  • Since CaptureSight can show the next shiny frame, upcoming IVs, and seed that created a Pokemon, no external tools are needed for Raid RNG
    • With raid and trade views, anyone without custom firmware only needs to know someone with custom firmware to do Raid RNG
  • The Applet has translations for multiple langues based on the Switch language setting

How do I use CaptureSight?

To use the applet:

  • Download the latest CaptureSight release.
  • Unzip the archive to get CaptureSight.nro
  • Copy CaptureSight.nro to be inside the /switch directory on your switch's SD card

  • Open the homebrew menu and launch CaptureSight

To use the overlay:
