This morning's Pokemon Nintendo Direct revealed a new feature in the game, called Max Raid Battles, that seems very similar to the raiding mechanic in Pokemon GO. And we aren't talking about Pokemon Sleep. There will also be a scenario where you can connct with three other players in order to battle Dynamax Pokemon in world events.
The update for "Pokemon Sword" and "Shield" came in a June 5 Nintendo Direct and can be seen on YouTube. 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). Hopefully a future Pokemon game will be one big Wild Area, instead of confining it to certain locations.
New Pokemon will also appear on the map like in "Pokemon Let's Go!". Your rival Hop is the younger brother of Pokemon champion Leon.
Kevin Durant Ruled Out For Game 3 Of Finals
The Golden State Warriors will be short-handed for Game 3 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday. The Warriors expect Durant to practice with the team before being cleared to return.
Professor Magnolia has a granddaughter named Sonia, who is her assistant and a helping hand throughout the game. We already knew about starter Pokemon Grookey, Sobble, and Scorbunny.
Considering that these are the first Pokemon games for Switch (or any home console), we hope to hear more about how Sword and Shield differ from Game Boy and DS titles before them. Zacain and Zamazenta are both legendary wolf Pokemon and appear on the covers for Sword and Shield.
Obviously, take all this with handfuls of salt - nothing has been confirmed by the Pokemon Company or Game Freak or Nintendo and this is still unverified information. With a release date of November 15, you might be thinking about pre-ordering your copy (or copies), today.
