THE POKÉMON ADVENTURE GETS MORE... WILD!
New region, new Pokémon, new rules: get ready, the long-awaited new generation of Pokémon is coming this winter!
Trainer or Trainer, begin your adventure in the fascinating region of Galar, inspired by Industrial Revolution England, where Pokémon battles are elevated to sporting events in stadiums! Your goal: progress with your Pokémon team to become the best trainer.
Brand new Pokémon await you in enchanting environments: valleys, mountains, forests and above all, the Savage Lands, these open-world areas where Pokémon move freely! A colossal novelty in this opus, the Dynamax phenomenon: it considerably amplifies the size of your Pokémon in battle and, when it is deployed by a wild Pokémon, only an alliance of experienced trainers can overcome it!
Choose your battle in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield on November 15, exclusively on Nintendo Switch!
CAN YOU UP TO POKÉMON DYNAMAX?
The Dynamax phenomenon occurs only in the Galar region, the Pokémon takes on a colossus size for a short time, its powers are increased tenfold and its statistics boosted. Use this devastating Dynamax tactic wisely in combat: for 3 turns you will have a significant advantage, but your opponent also has this power...
A variant exists, for certain Pokémon only, it is the Gigantamax: the Pokémon not only grows but changes appearance! With these peculiarities, Galar is known for its arena Pokémon battles taking place in real stadiums and welcoming thousands of spectators. Fight in Dynamax Raids: online or locally up to 4 Trainers can join forces to defeat a Dynamax Pokémon that appears in the Wilderness! You can also enlist the help of AI-generated Trainers.
THE POKÉMON OF GALAR HAVE MANY SURPRISES IN RESERVE FOR YOU!
New Pokémon are to be discovered: the iconic Moumouton, king of the plains or the dark Corvaillus which can transport you from one city to another; there are dozens of them! Can you capture them all?
Galarian Forms: As with the Alola region, old acquaintances from previous generations have adapted to Galar's unique environment, evidenced by Galar's Smogogo wearing a smoking top hat!
Pokémon in all their states! Some Pokémon like Morpeko have a changing appearance and attacks depending on their mood, Morpeko in hungry mode is... formidable!
DETHRON THE POKÉMON MASTER OF GALAR!
You start your adventure with an important choice, that of the first Pokémon: which of Flambino, Ouistempo or Larméléon will be your first partner? Travel the Galar region, capture wild Pokémon to build your team, train them and, in each new city discovered, face the Arena Champions to claim the title of Pokémon Master!

Between battles, spend time with your Pokémon!

EACH VERSION HAS ITS PARTICULARITY
Certain Pokémon are exclusive to one or the other of the versions, but also certain Arena Champions.

You'll also have to unravel the mystery behind each Legendary, Zacian, and Zamazenta!
THE WILD LANDS OFFER YOU LANDS TO EXPLORE AS FAR AS THE SIGHT OF SEEN:
