Pokémon Sword and Shield are the latest two mainline instalments in the Pokémon franchise and the first mainline original games to be released on the Nintendo Switch.
(We’re not including Let’s Go! Pikachu and Let’s Go! Eevee in that lineup because, although they are a lot of fun, they are also technically remakes.)
The game takes place in the brand new Galar region, believed to be based on the United Kingdom. There are plenty of new Pokémon to catch and befriend in this region – including the sheep Pokémon Wooloo, Farfetch’d’s long awaited evolution, and Gigantamax Pokémon.
However, The Pokémon Company appears to have cut out several old Pokémon from the game, causing a lot of strife amongst Pokémon fans who are demanding the return of the National Dex.
Pokémon Sword and Shield launches November 15th on Nintendo Switch.
