Chain Fishing for Brilliant Pokémon
Fishing can increase your chances of encountering Brilliant Pokémon (Pokémon giving off a yellow aura, which know an Egg Move). Differing from standard Encounter Chaining, the number of times you've battled any one specie won't matter at all for fishing; instead, you'll simply need to defeat as many Pokémon consecutively as you can, no matter which specie appears.
The chain will break if you fail to reel a Pokémon in, if you catch a Pokémon, run away from a Pokémon, leave the area or turn off your game.
The number of successful hooks goes towards your chances of encountering a Brilliant Pokémon, and the thresholds are as follows.
Unlockable How to Unlock 1. Brilliant Pokémon may appear 0–2 successful hooks 2. Brilliant Pokémon have 1.3× the likelihood of appearing 3-6 successful hooks 3. Brilliant Pokémon have 3.3× the likelihood of appearing 7-14 successful hooks 4. Brilliant Pokémon have 6.6× the likelihood of appearing 15-24 successful hooks 5. Brilliant Pokémon have 16.6× the likelihood of appearing 25+ successful hooks
Increasing the chances of Brilliant and Shiny Pokémon through Encounter Chains
The Pokédex keeps track of the number of times you've defeated or caught a certain specie of Pokémon; this number goes towards your chances of encountering a Brilliant Pokémon of that specie (Pokémon giving off a yellow aura, which know an Egg Move) and Shiny Pokémon (Pokémon with a different, rarer color palette than usual).
Unlockable How to Unlock 1. Brilliant Pokémon may appear At least 1 Encounter 2. Brilliant Pokémon have 1.3× the likelihood of appearing At least 20 Encounters 3. Brilliant Pokémon have 1.6× the likelihood of appearing and Shiny Pokémon have 2× the likelihood of appearing At least 50 Encounters 4.

Shiny Pokémon have 6× the likelihood of appearing At least 500 Encounters
Unlockables through Curry Dex completion
In Pokémon Camp, one of the actions you can do is cook Curry with your Pokémon, and a Curry Dex keeps track of the kinds of Curry you've cooked; by talking to the Cooking Guru, right outside Motostoke in the Wild Area, you can unlock various things based on the amount of different kinds of Curry you've cooked.
Another action you can do in Pokémon Camp is playing with your Pokémon with various toys; different Pokémon like different toys and most of the rewards for Curry Dex filling are new Toy skins.

Wild Area Weather Control.
Under normal circumstances the weather in the Wild Area is completely random, which can make hunting for certain Pokemon which only spawn under specific weather conditions a frustrating experience. Fortunately, the weather can be altered by changing the date on your Nintendo Switch under System Settings using the dates specified below, presented in the following format: MM/DD/YY. (Time is irrelevant unless the Pokemon you're hunting spawns exclusively during day or night.)
02/01/20XX - Snowstorm*
03/01/20XX - Cloudy
04/01/20XX - Sandstorm*
05/01/20XX - Clear
06/01/20XX - Fog*
07/01/20XX - Sunny
10/01/20XX - Rain
11/01/20XX - Thunderstorm
12/01/20XX - Snow
* The following weather conditions are unattainable until you've passed the following milestones: Sandstorm and Snowstorm = 4 Gym Badges Earned, Fog = Galar Pokemon League Champion Title Earned.
WARNING: Changing the date on your Switch will reset the timer on any active Pokejobs.
