Pokemon Sword and Shield First 1-2 hours of gameplay embargo lifted

Published on 18 October 2019 at 13:52:34
Hey fellow trainers,

yesterday an embargo was lifted and several sites reported about how the first 2 hours of the game are playing.
Here is a collected list of facts that were released:

  • Similar to DexNav, the Pokémon Sword and Shield Pokémon will have a minimap that will show all the Pokémon that appear on the path you are on.
  • The Wild Area of Pokémon Sword and Shield will feature a new coin called "Watts."
  • You can accumulate Watts when completing raids and defeating Pokémon with yellow aura and you can spend your Watts on objects for the camp, ingredients and other exclusive objects.
  • Pokémon Sword and Shield will feature Rare Candies of different sizes. Some for example only give you a little experience; Not enough to go up one level. They are obtained as rewards in raids.
  • In Pokémon Sword and Shield the NPCs that usually required you to have a certain Pokémon in the team (for example the one that helped you remember movements) will also allow you to select Pokémon that you have in boxes.
  • In the Wild Area of Pokémon Sword and Shield returns the Pokémon Let's Go laptop. You can access the PC and change your device at any time without going to a Pokémon Center.
  • Unlike other games, the protagonist is involved and interested in discovering the secrets of the Galar region since the beginning of the game.
  • Many moments in game feel more that we are playing a JRPG like Dragon Quest or Final. Fantasy than Pokémon.
  • In the Wild Area you can sometimes find Pokémon surrounded by a yellow aura. If you find one you are in luck, since these Pokémon usually have some perfect IVs and egg movements.
  • Pokémon Sword and Shield have a new weather forecasting function that informs you how the weather will be in the game in the next few hours.
  • The initial town is called Wedgehurst
  • The big city of Galar is called Motostoke
  • According to The Pokémon Company, the Wild Area is equivalent to two Breath of the Wild regions.
  • First forest is called Slumbering Weald

What do you think about these facts?

Aegislash confirmed to be in Pokemon Sword and Shield

Published on 20 September 2019 at 12:24:56
Today, there was a tweet from Serebii telling us that Aegislash is confirmed to be in the upcoming Pokemon game. 

https://twitter.com/serebiinet/status/1174872294424010758?s=21

Aegislash spotted in the wild



This information originates from a new website that has gone live a few hours ago: https://dmaxcamera.pokemon.co.jp/ja/
The Dynamax Camera is a tool that let's you upload Pictures from landscapes and will put random Pokemon in their dynamaxed form onto it.
When we first tried it we go this:
Our first generated Dynamax Pokemon


Does this mean that these Pokemon are confirmed? We are not sure but we can assume they are!

Sirfetch'd announced (Sword exclusive)

Published on 19 September 2019 at 12:47:11
There has been a weird pixelated Pokemon floating around on the official Sword and Shield website.

Yesteday, The Pokemon Company finally revealed what this glitched Pokemon was.
Sirfetch'd an evolution of the well known Farfetch will join the battle exclusively on Pokemon Sword when the game comes out.
Information says, that Farfetch will evolve into Sirfetch'd once he participated in enough battles. At this point it is not clear what that means, is there a new way to evolve certain Pokemon coming? Who knows?

We expect a similar information for the Pokemon Shield exclusive Pokemon to follow soon!

New logo! New Design! Pokemon Sword and Shield!

Published on 30 August 2019 at 14:04:19

Hello Dear Community!


As you might have seen the design of the website changed quite a bit.
We have a new logo finally and it looks really amazing!

In addition to that we also updated the look of the website quite a bit. We now follow a more light approach and some slightly changed colours.

Also, as you might have noticed we created a first tournament for Pokemon Sword and Shield: https://switch-tournaments.com/tournament/204
It's on the evening of the launch day and we are really looking forward to play and compete with all of you!
For sure not everyone will have his perfect team set up or even be able to play through the game at this point, but that's also a fun opportunity to see with which Pokemon other players have went through their journey.

Last but not least we also integrated an Elo Rating System onto the website. This rating is an indicator on how good you perform as a player.
Everyone starts with an Elo Rating of 1500 and will be awarded with points for each win they achieve. If you lose you will of course also lose some points. Right now the Elo Rating is just used as a first indicator of skill but in the future we will try to use this rating to schedule the tournaments in a much better way, so that it could be impossible that the Top 2 Players face off in the first round of a tournament.

If you have any feedback feel free to contact us on our discord server at: https://discord.gg/8kDj8Eq

Looking forward to hosting more tournaments in the future!

Cheers,

KiLLyA
