Pokémon Sword and Shield is Getting New Information Wednesday

More news on the latest generation of Pokémon is coming soon.

According to Pokémon’s official Twitter, more news for Pokémon Sword and Shield is on its way. The post says that the new information will release on Wednesday, August 7 at 6am PST.

We have been receiving a consistent amount of new information in recent months. In early June, there was a Pokémon direct that was chock full of information. Following that we received a trailer for the game during Nintendo’s E3 Presentation. The,n last month, there was a trailer that showed off Gigantamaxing and how there would be an exclusive gym leader for each version of the game which we haven’t seen since Pokémon Black and White.

After getting to play the game at E3 back in June we found it to show “a lot of promise.” Since then, there has been controversy about how only a select amount of Pokémon can be in the game. As a long time fan of the series myself, this is the first time since my childhood that I have been legitimately excited for a new generation.

Pokémon Sword and Shield will be the first entries in the mainline series to be on a console. Nintendo recently announced that the game will receive a themed Nintendo Switch Lite.

Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield are set to release on November 15 exclusively on the Nintendo Switch. You can pre-order Sword and Shield on Amazon. There is also a double pack available for those planning to pick up both versions of the game. We will be sure to update you on the upcoming information as it comes out.
