Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield (11/15/19; Switch)

Recommended Posts

Pokémon Sword and Shield are upcoming role-playing video games developed by Game Freak and published by The Pokémon Company and Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch. They will be the first main series games in the eighth generation of the Pokémon series. The games are scheduled for a worldwide release on November 15, 2019.

 

Sword and Shield take place in the Galar region, a large, narrow expanse of land, and one of many regions in the Pokémon world. The region itself and its many landmarks appear to be heavily inspired by Great Britain, such as a clocktower and palace which resemble Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, and a hillside monument resembling the Cerne Abbas Giant.

 

Sword and Shield were fully unveiled on a special Nintendo Direct presentation on February 27, 2019, introducing the game's region and starter Pokémon. The starters are: Grookey, the grass-type starter, which is a simian Pokémon; Scorbunny, the fire-type starter, which is a rabbit; and Sobble, the water-type starter, which is a chameleon. The presentation coincided with Pokémon Day, a fan celebration of Pokémon on the anniversary of the Japanese release of Pokémon Red and Green.

I don't know what to say. I just don't.

 

ALL OF THIS. JUST ALL OF IT.

 

TAKE MY MONEY.

 

This is already looking exceedingly better than Alola/Gen. 7. This time... it's not even just the Gyms for the reason. I like the looks of ALL of these pokemon as well.

 

Also... not a surprise that the legendaries ended up being 'Sword' and 'Shield' related. STILL GREAT THOUGH.

 

I LOVE ALL OF THIS.

 

AMAZING. Even saying something like this seems to just not describe what I just watched.

 

NOVEMBER CAN'T COME SOON ENOUGH.

 

😍

Apparently some select Pokemon can go beyond Dynamax to Gigamax. However Gigamax is supremely RNG dependent. The official site says not all Pokemon that have a Gigamax form can use it. You have to catch one that can, only through Max Raid Battles, and they're rare.

Not sure if this is a Japan exclusive deal, but:

 

As a special bonus for purchasing the Dual Pack SteelBook Edition, Trainers will receive two codes (one per game) that will reward them with special items known as Dynamax Crystals. By using the Dynamax Crystals in the Wild Area, Trainers will be able to face Dynamax Larvitar and Dynamax Jangmo-o, Pokémon that are normally encountered later in the game, in special Max Raid Battles. Larvitar won’t appear in Pokémon Sword and Jangmo-o won’t appear in Pokémon Shield during normal gameplay, but players will be able to catch them in either version by using these Dynamax Crystals.

 

Also, the games have Version exclusive Gym Leaders. In Sword you face the Fighting-type Bea while in Shield you face the Ghost-type Allister. Deino and Jangmo-o are exclusive to Sword and Larvitar & Goomy are exclusive to Shield.
