Newest Sword & Shield Information


Shigeru Ohmori takes us through some the newest details about the upcoming game!

Game Freak’s Shigeru Ohmori (the director of S/S) released a short 2 minute video for the 2019 Gamescom. The video is at the end of the article if you wish to have a further look.

So let’s see what new!

First we see a new Town.

In this town it has the Pokemon Lab where Professor Magnolia researches the Dynamax phenomenon.

Getting around Galar.

It’s safe to say there will be no HM’s here. Just like the newest Pokemon games, there are specific Pokemon that assist you on your journey. In S/S a Corviknight will fly you between towns. I personally prefer the HM’s. It is harder to play the game, but it’s original.

Afraid of flying? There is also railway stations all around Galar. You can ride the train to get around or for fun.

Pokemon Center

Take a look at the newest Pokemon Center design. We don’t get to yet see what the inside like, or if Nurse Joy is there, just yet.

Town Story

In this game they have really pushed the ‘Partner Pokemon’ and living in harmony with Pokemon. This is very similar to the way of life in Rhyme City in the Detective Pikachu movie.


I am so pleased with the gameplay and the graphics so far. All that I can think of right now is the Gamecube games (Coliseum and XD) but with 43564485484x better graphics.
