About Pokemon Sword And Shield

Get ready to discover Galar, an expansive region with diverse environments, from a peaceful countryside and contemporary cities to a thick forest and snow-covered mountains. The people and Pokémon who live here work together closely to develop the industries within it.

Throughout your journey, you’ll have the opportunity to visit various Gyms in your quest to become Champion! You won’t be alone though, as Galar is home to newly discovered Pokémon that you can choose to be your very first partner!

The Dynamax phenomenon

Dynamax is a phenomenon unique to specific locations in the Galar region, where Pokémon can take on gigantic appearances during battle, and it’s an integral part of Pokémon battles in the region.

Pokémon from the Galar region are able to Dynamax, and when they do, they become tremendously strong and receive a boost to their power.

Explore the Wild Area

The Wild Area is a vast expanse of land in the Galar region with untamed wilderness. It is full of nature and connects several different towns and cities. Trainers will find a greater variety of Pokémon living in the Wild Area than anywhere else in the Galar region.

Join a Max Raid Battle

Max Raid Battles are a new battle format that takes place in the Wild Area, in which the player will team up with up to three other Trainers online* or via local wireless** to take on a wild Dynamax Pokémon. Trainers will then get a chance to catch the wild Dynamax Pokémon if they manage to defeat it – but it won’t go down easily.

Legendary Pokémon

The Legendary Pokémon Zacian and Zamazenta are shrouded in mystery and are unknown even to those who live in the Galar region.

People and Pokémon of the Galar Region

As a resident of the Galar region, players will embark on an adventure to become the Champion and meet many people and Pokémon along the way.

Many different species of Pokémon call the Galar region home. Much is unknown about the biology of these Pokémon, so researchers are working diligently to discover more information.

Pokemon Sword & Shield are scheduled to launch on 15 November for Nintendo Switch.
