Pokemon Sword and Shield: How Max Raid Battles Work

Pokemon Sword and Shield: How Max Raid Battles Work

Well, Pokémon Sword and Shield have now appeared on the list of eligible titles, meaning you can pick up both games for significantly less than the standard price. Pokemon Sword and Shield take place in The Galar Region, which is an expansive land that hints from the Pokemon company have hinted is at least partially based on the United Kingdom. Different Pokemon will appear in these wild areas depending on whether and daytime conditions.

Discounting last year's spin-off remakes Pokemon Let's Go, the upcoming Pokemon Sword and Shield bring the next-generation core Pokemon RPG series to a home console, the Nintendo Switch, for the first time.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, Luigi's Mansion 3, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, Pokemon Sword & Pokemon Shield, "and more" will be playable. Plus, like Pokemon Go you'll have a chance to catch the wild Pokemon at the end of a Max Raid battle, and some Pokemon can only be caught after you've defeated them in a such a battle. Only one of the trainers in your group will be able to Dynamax their Pokemon to match the wild giant Pokemon, so you'll have to choose wisely.

More news: Hope grows for deal to ward off Trump's tariffs on Mexican imports

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?

And a new Pokemon Direct has just gifted us with tons of cool new details on what we can expect in the Galar Region (Pokemon England).

We were also introduced to the two version legendaries for Sword and Shield: Zacian and Zamazenta. And maybe we'll even get a firm release date for the games as well. Oh well. We still can't wait to play these games when they launch on November 15.
