Pokémon Direct – Sword & Shield Update

First up, a brand new trailer for the game.

It looks absolutely stunning – very open world looking. New Pokémon. Some classics. Watch the new trailer below.

New Pokémon Wooloo, Gossifluer, Drednaw & Corviknight. And as a small preview, the Gossifluer evolution was shown too – Gossifluer evolves into Eldegoss.

You’ll find new Pokémon in “wild areas”. An area of the game where more Pokémon will reside. And different Pokémon will appear depending on your location within the game.

Dynamax ability will allow you to “grow” your Pokémon, allowing it to take on other Pokémon in a completely new way.

Think Godzilla size Pokémon. But you can only use this ability once per battle, so you need to use it wisely.

A new feature coming to the Pokémon game, Max Raid Battles. Will allow you to hookup with friends locally, or via the internet and take on a Dynamaxed Pokémon.

During these MRB’s, you’ll keep your Dynamax size and work with your friends to take down a random Pokémon.

If you win, you’ll get the chance to catch said Pokémon.

New legendary Pokémon – Zacian & Zamazenta – will appear in the game.

Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield will have a worldwide release on November 15th, 2019.
