Pokémon Sword and Shield are upcoming role-playing video games for Nintendo Switch, and they will be published by The Pokémon Company and Nintendo. Although it’s expected to still be a big success, many gamers want to know what to expect from the game series.
Pokemon games have long been entertaining generations of gamers; therefore, fans expect only the best from Pokemon Sword and Shield. Let’s dive right into it:
Fans have only a month to wait until the release time, which will occur on November 15th.
We could previously see some of the characters Pokemon Sword and Shield will bring: Galarian Ponyta is the last one announced.
Nintendo has set the Galar Region as the playground for the future game, which represents a replica for the United Kingdom. The map is predicted to unfold new exciting adventures. It looks like it’s broken down into sections where specific Pokemon may be found at.
The three starter Pokemon from Sword and Shield are the traditionally fire, water, and grass type.
- Sobble: The water starter
- Grookey: The grass starter
- Scorbunny: The fire starter
There are four confirmed gym leaders since they have been showcased during the Pokemon announcements:
- Milo – Grass Type Gym
- Nessa – Water Type Gym
- Bea – Fighting Type Gym – Sword specific Gym
- Allister – Ghost Type Gym – Shield specific Gym
Galar Region Pokemon
Region-specific Pokemon are added to the game, meaning they differ a bit in appearance than the usual form.
- Galarian Wheezing – Poison/Fairy
- Galarian Zigzagoon – Dark/Normal
- Galarian Linoone – Dark/Normal
- Galarian Obstagoon – Dark/Normal
Open World Game?
There’s a good chance we will see an open world type of game for Pokemon Sword and Shield. Fans have been demanding that for many years, and Nintendo has seemed to be pretty interested in creating a more diverse playground for the game.
Even new Pokemon are expected in the Sword and Shield since we’re talking about the 8th generation- Eldegoss, Wooloo, and Drednaw are among them.
