New Features

Nintendo has already introduced many new features for Pokemon Sword and Shield like Poké Jobs. But, how do these Poké Jobs work? The Player has to help people and, fulfill their requests. The request could be related to Cooking and Constructing in exchange you, might get some rare items and experience. They have also introduced “CO-OP Raids” similar to those in Pokémon Go. A “Camp” mode was introduced allowing the player to spend some time interacting or playing with their Pokémon and to cook different types of curry which provide bonuses for Pokémon. Extra clothing customization’s for the player character, like outerwear and other accessories. The game is not just about Growing and, Evolving your pokémons it is also about evolving your trainer too. The idea of strength and striving to be the greatest and strongest was one of the core themes that Game Freak used in designing the game. This is expressed through the Switch’s status as the most powerful console to run a Pokémon game, features such as Dynamaxing,


Pokémon Sword and Shield takes place in the Galar region. The map is also, the biggest ever for a Pokémon game. They also described the world setting as Modern. The region itself is inspired by Britain. Places such as Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament are included in the game. Many of the region’s towns and cities feature Pokémon Gyms stylized like football stadiums. Weather across the area also changes regularly. You have to face off against the Gym Leaders of each town, including Milo, Nessa, Bea, and Allister, and aim to take part in the Champions Cup

Visuals and New Animations
