A whole new Pokémon RPG adventure awaits in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield on Nintendo Switch!
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 a 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!
- Your adventure in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield begins when you choose one of three new Pokémon!
- Grookey, a Grass-type Chimp Pokémon, is mischievous and full of boundless curiosity.
- Bursting with energy is Scorbunny, a Fire-type Rabbit Pokémon who’s always running about.
- The stealthy Sobble, a Water-type Water Lizard Pokémon, shoots out attacks as it hides in water.
- 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.
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.
