It can be hard to focus on the smaller details of a new trailer when so much information is given to us. However, we slowed down the new gameplay footage quite a bit for Pokemon Sword and Shield and have found some important details that you should know about.
Pokemon Gyms Are Back and Bigger Than Ever
Considering that Pokemon Gyms weren’t shown in the initial reveal for Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield, fans were skeptical about whether or not we would see them in the new games.
But now we know that gyms are back and they are bigger than ever. You see, battling is the number one most popular form of entertainment in the Galar region, so not only are the gym battles televised but hundreds of people will show up to watch the battle live.
Each Gym Leader will have a Dynamax Pokemon for you to battle, and you will be able to use one as well, creating a colossal fight that will excite and shake up the battle stadium.
And just like normal, each Gym Leader will specialize in one specific type of Pokemon, so you know what to expect before you head in.
