Is this Switch only? It'll be a shame for the series to desert the handheld consoles.

There was a leak that had loads of evos for old Pokemon (like there was one for Dunsparce and one for Donphan) as well as Delta forms for Johto and Hoenn Pokemon but I'm assuming they were fake, you get so much shit coming out from people who know they can get a bit of clout while people are scrambling for info laugh.gif I hope we get "Galarian" forms though, I really liked the Alolan forms last time as it was an interesting way to breathe life into Pokemon that needed a bit of love to make them interesting again.

Apparently, and this seems more concrete, what we could be getting is armored Pokemon, which sounds even worse than Megas tbh

Of course it is, they're starting to ditch the 3DS now.

And the Switch can be handheld if you want it to be.

I still don’t understand what Dynamax is, is it just making them look bigger for enhanced visual effects? Also I’m liking how the “gyms” are stadiums in this!

Dynamax sounds like a failed DVD alternative from 2002 laugh.gif Not sure about the idea tbh, I assume it will be like when there was the bigger Totem Pokemon and they had increased stats. I just don't really see the point, I'd much rather have something a bit more novel and interesting like the Alolan forms were :/ If every Pokemon can have it it might at least be more interesting than Megas.

Corviknight, Wooloo and Eldegoss are queens tbh. I don't like that the legendaries embody the names of the game so literally.

I'm not here for the new generational gimmick and I wish they would stop them all. I think I would have liked it better if there were just particular Dynamax battles, instead of getting to Dynamax once per BATTLE. That's a whole ffing lot of Dynamaxing if I'm not gonna like using it.

The last game I played was Black and White so seeing these graphics and camera control was really something else. I know it's still probably subpar compared to other games/consoles but for a Pokémon game I think they slay. I also like that weather conditions will influence was Pokémon you will encounter.

Yeah me too, I don't think every gen needs a "gimmick" like this, I think it makes it less special too with it seemingly being anyone can go Dynamax in any battle. I'd like it if there were certain boss Pokemon like within the evil teams, the rival's starter or a gym leader's ace that kind of emphasised them or upped their stats to make them more a challenge, but if it's just gonna be any old thing in any old battle I don't see the point.

I'd much rather they fleshed out Alolan forms or Mega Evolution a bit more, as much as I wasn't a fan of the latter.

I cringed the whole way through at their presenters laugh.gif and Dynamax looks like a massive gimmick right now but I’m sure I’ll love it when I come to play it. Some of the gameplay looks fab!

I thought I read that Dynamaxing can only be done during certain parts of the game e.g. Gym Battles and certain Wild Zone areas and that’s it? Hardly fun if it’s every battle like 1:1 with Bill the Nerd and his Grimer laugh.gif

The footage reminded me a lot of the BotW world actually, which for a Pokémon game is spectacular.

The game looks so good *_* I like the pokemon we've seen so far. Wooloo being my favourite - it better have a good evolution chain!

Only the Pokemon in the actual Galar Dex have been coded into the game - so you can only use those. Really bizarre decision :/

That is an incredibly strange decision to make. Who knows how many Pokemon are going to be included? :S

I might sound very cynical but it feels like this is leading up to the obligatory enhanced second version having them all, so people will buy Sword and Shield now bc of the Switch hype, then also buy the next one to get all the Pokemon laugh.gif Some people are saying that it's no different to when Sun and Moon didn't have the option of getting certain Pokemon until Pokemon Bank was updated for it, and like fine you can never obtain every Pokemon in every game but to not even code them in and never have the option of bringing them over.....

I'm not THAT bothered from a personal standpoint as I always tend to use new Pokemon in playthroughs anyway but it's just such a weird decision, it's going to limit the metagame for example.
