"Best Pokemon game since Pearl & Diamond IMO"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Despite lots of the hate online, I bought it to see for myself if any of the issues actually affected the classic Pokemon experience that comes with each game, and I have to say – It's good! The good parts of X & Y have come through into this game. The style of art creates a nice, chill atmosphere where needed, but in the wild, things are much more interesting and present different challenges. I definitely suggest fans give it a go and see for themselves (any legitimate issues are overhyped imo).

"Solid Pokemon entry for the Switch"
5 stars"

Although the game may not be what everyone was expecting, sword and shield is a solid entry for the Pokemon main series for the Nintendo Switch. The large and diverse wild area makes running into unexpected Pokemon always a pleasant surprise. D-Max mechanic is more balanced than Mega evolutions and the variety of gym leaders is refreshing. I finished the mainline story in under 25 hours with still much more to do and with the promise of extra Pokemon to be added in the future I am sure you will get your moneys worth in entertainment value. You can even skip most of the gyms and loose yourself in Max-Raid battles thus adding a new way to approach your play through. In all I highly recommend the game to any switch owner.

The Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield games take place in the Galar region. Galar is an expansive region with diverse environments – an idyllic countryside, contemporary cities, thick forest, and craggy, snow-covered mountains. The people and the Pokémon who live there work together closely to develop the industries in the region. Fans will have the opportunity to visit various Gyms in the Galar region in their quest to become Champion. They will not be alone since the newly discovered Pokémon they choose to be their first partner will be by their side.

The adventure begins in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield when players choose one of three new Pokémon – Grookey, Scorbunny, or Sobble. Grookey, a Grass-type Chimp Pokémon, is mischievous and full of boundless curiosity. Bursting with energy, Scorbunny, a Fire-type Rabbit Pokémon, is always running about. The stealthy Sobble, a Water-type Water Lizard Pokémon, shoots out attacks as it hides itself in water.

The Wild Area is a vast expanse of land in the Galar region with untamed wilderness. It is full of nature and connects several different towns and cities. Trainers will find a greater variety of Pokémon living in the Wild Area than anywhere else in the Galar region. The Pokémon encountered in the Wild Area will change depending on factors like weather or location, so Trainers might see something new each time they visit. While in the Wild Area, players can control the camera to explore the vast areas around them and search for Pokémon and items.
