Sword & Shield, the latest installment(s) in the venerable Pokémon series, has been the subject of no small amount of controversy.And now one fan’s passion and upset about the changes to the series have led one fan to make a petition to stop its sales to the White House — yes, that White House.Originally, the problem was that Sword & Shield would not have a National Dex, a feature whereby players could import their complete collection of Pokémon.Due to hardware limitations, this would apparently be impossible — one of the games’ producers, Junichi Masuda, told Famitsu that, since there will now be over 1,000 Pokémon as of this game, it’s simply too difficult to make models for all of them.That means you literally cannot catch ’em all in the latest game.But now it appears this controversy is being superceded by another blow, namely that the models for returning Pokémon in Sword & Shield apparently have virtually identical polygon counts to their models in the preceding games, Sun & Moon.
Due for official release on November 15, Pokémon Sword and Shield sees the beloved series undergoing a bit of a (somewhat controversial) redesign.Despite the controversy, Pokémon Sword and Shield has been getting rave reviews, with critics praising the games' beautiful new region, more strategies Pokémon battles and, in some cases, referring to the games as potentially the best entries in the series to date.The story delivers enough twists and turns to keep you guessing, steeped in the kinds of myths and legends that you forget the British Isles are chock-full of. ''What we've got here is an experience full of highs and lows, from the unadulterated wonder and joy of seeing a brand-new Pokémon in a stadium full of cheering crowds, to the monotonous and dragged-out dialogue we just wanted to skip. ''In collecting, battling, and exploring, Sword and Shield cut out the bloat and focus on what makes these pillars of the Pokemon games so captivating in the first place.'Pokémon Sword and Shield release date
Finally: a true Pokémon game on a flagship Nintendo console.Last year’s Pokémon Let’s Go games were technically the Switch’s first Pokémon RPGs, but those remakes of the original Red and Blue were greatly simplified and softened up to cater to newer and younger players who got their start with Pokémon Go.That means Sword and Shield feature the same basic skeleton that has grown into a Pokémon tradition over the past 20+ years.Along the way, you encounter and vanquish a team of bumbling low-level criminals, repeatedly battle with a rival who helps you hone your skills, and solve a regional mystery that ends with you capturing one or more ancient legendary creatures.Pokémon without all the PokémonAny discussion of what has changed in Sword and Shield needs to start with the games’ most controversial subtraction: for the first time in the series’ history, a mainline Pokémon game won’t actually include all the Pokémon.
Pokemon Sword and Shield are right around the corner and the discussion about these games in the lead up to release is, frankly, all over the place.Though it seems like there’s a new controversy every day, the overarching theme to all this frustration centers on something fans have started calling “Dexit.” In short, not all of the Pokemon that have appeared in past games will be available in Sword and Shield, marking the first time this has happened in Pokemon‘s more than 20 year history.Last week, what’s claimed to be the full Pokedex for Pokemon Sword and Shield leaked out, and if it’s accurate, there are a lot of Pokemon from previous generations that won’t be returning to the game.This added fuel to the proverbial fire, as these deep cuts only made people more upset (and understandably so).If you’re looking at all of this chaos and you’re still looking forward to Sword and Shield, that’s okay.There are communities online – the Pokemon subreddit being a chief example – that have largely pledged to boycott these games and have dedicated themselves to documenting all of Game Freak’s perceived slights against Pokemon fans.
A variety of Pokemon already in Pokemon GO will get Galarian Forms some time after the launch of Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield.Today we’re taking a peek at what’s known and expanding on what’s already in the game Pokemon GO to make some next-level analysis a reality!The Pokemon that appear in Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield with new Galarian forms are as follows:• Rapidash (evolves from G.Ponyta) (Psychic / Fairy)• Farfetch’d (largely the same as Kanto, but evolves into Sirfetch’d) (Fighting)• Weezing (not Koffing) (Poison / Fairy)
Game Freak's decision to feature a reduced Pokédex in Pokémon Sword and Shield has been a controversial one, but it seems the cut could be a permanent one.In an interview with Inside Gamer (via VG247), Game Freak producer Junichi Masuda stated that the developer plans to remove the national Pokédex in future Pokémon titles."We now have no plans to make the Pokémon that are missing in the Galar Pokédex in-game available," Masuda said."That is an approach that we want to continue in the future with Pokémon games."Best upcoming games 2019: most anticipated titles for PS4, Xbox One and SwitchYou'll never catch 'em all
Pokemon Sword and Shield have been going through a rough patch for these past few months.Though The Pokemon Company’s marketing machine is in full gear, Pokemon fans keep coming back to one topic in particular: the national Pokedex, or the lack thereof.During E3 2019, Game Freak confirmed that the Pokedex in Pokemon Sword and Shield won’t include all previously-released Pokemon, making them the first mainline games in the series to do something like that.Obviously, discussion ebbs and flows as new features for Sword and Shield are revealed, but it never seems to take very long before Pokemon fans are back on the topic of the Pokedex and how disappointing it is that Sword and Shield won’t feature all of the Pokemon released thus far.When Pokemon Bank was released, it was very encouraging for people who were concerned about future proofing their collections, but now that we know Sword and Shield won’t support all of the Pokemon we’ve caught throughout the years, it’s really easy to feel like filling out the Bank was a waste of time.Even beyond the people who have been gone to great lengths to catch all of the Pokemon and fill out their Pokedexes, there’s still plenty of reason to be upset by this dramatic change.
Pokemon Sword and Shield are nearly here, and it seems the floodgates have opened.Leaks have been hitting the internet left and right, with one huge leak detailing the entire Galar Pokedex.Assuming this leak is accurate, we now know all of the Pokemon that will be in Sword and Shield, and there are probably going to be a lot of upset players.Be warned: if you don’t want spoilers for Pokemon Sword and Shield, it’s best to stop reading here.If you do hang around to see the leaked Pokedex, keep in mind that nothing is set in stone until Game Freak confirms it, so take what you read here with a grain of salt.With the requisite warnings out of the way, let’s dive into this leaked Pokedex, which first appeared in a spoilers and leaks megathread over on ResetEra.
Today we’re looking at a variety of changes made to Pokemon GO this morning – the most interesting of which was a tiny mistake in the moves code.Those players who had Pokemon with the move “Giga Impact” could’ve (and in some cases did seem to) take advantage of a listed power of 9001 instead of just 200.This level of power in a single Pokemon move in Pokemon GO would, essentially, devastate any Pokemon opponent.According to sources including Poke Miners, the Pokemon move “Giga Impact” had a lot more power than normal for a short period this morning.At approximately 16:53 hours on October 31 (last night), PokeMiners reported that changes had started to be made to the game’s code – including moves like Giga Impact and Locked On.Giga Impact, at that time, had its power changed to 150.

If you’re looking in the right place, it’s easier to find a Shiny Pokemon in Pokemon GO right now than it’s basically ever been before.This is largely because of the Shiny spawn rate of the Costumed Starter Pokemon, but also because of current rates at which several odd (and seemingly randomly chosen) Shiny Pokemon are appearing.In other words, it’s not very easy to find a Shiny Pokemon in Pokemon GO.It’s far easier than it’s ever been in one of the traditional handheld Pokemon games – but still, not easy.Or at least not common.According to the latest research from our own friends in the field, the rate at which the Costumed Starter Pokemon appear Shiny is far higher than almost any other Shiny Pokemon’s ever been in Pokemon GO.
