Pokemon Sword & Shield Direct

Pokemon Sword & Shield Direct

We've now seen the cover art for all regions! Should you be interested, Pokemon Sword and Shield both drop on November 15th.

Variety also reports a new battle mechanic called Dynamax will allow Pokemon to balloon to giant proportions, which increases their attack power. This makes them much larger, and more powerful.You can use it once per battle, but the Pokemon will return to standard size after three turns.

The we come to the Wild Area, which is described as a "vast expanse of land" that connects several cities in the Galar region.

In the Direct, it initially seems that Pokemon appear on the overworld map only within the Wild Area, but according to a press release from The Pokemon Company, we'll see wild Pokemon wandering around the entire region.

Pascal Siakam struggles in Game 2 after star-making Finals debut
He finished with a game-high 34 points and 14 rebounds, making a living at the free throw line, going a flawless 16-of-16. Not saying it's smart, but you only have about a week left to gut it out and see if you can help the team".

I'm going to assume most people only allot enough money for one video game every couple of weeks at most, and the revelation that the new Pokémon game is going to be hitting in the same period as two other highly-anticipated games leaves me wondering: exactly who is going to win in terms of sales? The two Pokemon will figure into the game's story. There's also a few new Pokemon, including Gossifleur, Eldegoss, Drednaw, Corviknight, and the twin legendaries Zacian and Zamazenta - you can see them in action during the trailer below.

We expect to hear more about this in the Direct at 2pm.

A 15 minute long Direct just on the new core Pokemon will kick off tonight at 2300 AEST. This year, Nintendo will be releasing Pokemon Sword & Shield, the latest installments in the beloved RPG series.
