Nintendo just revealed more information about the newest games in the Pokemon franchise.
It looks like we're going to be seeing a slew of new features – as well as some returning favourites – in this year's offering.
The 15 minute Direct revealed quite a lot of new information, but the most impressive reveal of all was the release date: Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield will be releasing around the world on the same day, November 15.
There will also be a double pack available for the game, too – we're told we'll learn more about that soon.
We didn't hear anything about the rumoured Pokemon Sword and Shield Galar forms, though.
We learned more about where the games will be set – during your adventure, you will be traveling through the Galar region, where you will find many unique locations, such as huge grassy plains filled with nature and towns and cities where people and Pokémon work and live together!
Another characteristic part of Galarian culture is the way Pokémon battles are regarded as the most popular form of entertainment across the whole region.
Challengers face off against the Gym Leaders in Pokémon battles held in the various stadiums found throughout the region. Whenever there is a battle, these stadiums ring with the passionate cheering of large crowds of fans and spectators.
A new feature was revealed, too: Dynamx.
Dynamax is a phenomenon unique to specific locations in the Galar region, where Pokémon are able to take on gigantic appearances. Pokémon from the Galar region are capable of Dynamaxing, and the Dynamax Pokémon become tremendously strong.
The Dynamax phenomenon, which allows Pokémon to become tremendously powerful, is an integral part of Pokémon battles in the Galar region. Dynamax Pokémon dont just become bigger—they get a boost in power as well. But they will return to normal after three turns, so make sure think carefully about when to trigger the Dynamax phenomenon!
Naturally, the Dynamax phenomenon is the topic of much research in the Galar region. A special item known as the Dynamax Band is the product of such research. Only Trainers who possess a Dynamax Band are able to Dynamax their Pokémon.
All the moves of a Dynamax Pokémon will turn into special Max Moves. Max Moves pack a punch, but thats not all! Some of them can even trigger powerful additional effects!
The Max Moves your Pokémon can use are determined by what kind and types of moves they knew before Dynamaxing.
