On September 5, 2019, new information was released regarding Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.
No less than 5 features and 2 new Pokémon were shown to us in this Nintendo Direct.
Customizing your avatar
If in Pokémon X and Y we could customize our avatar, it's nothing compared to what Sword and Shield will offer us!
Gloves, whole outfits, headgear, make-up, haircut... You can change from head to toe and make your character unique. All you have to do is go to the different stores in Galar. Each city has various and varied items.
The return of the Pokémon Amie, allowing us to pamper our Pokémon! This makes it possible in particular to:
- Strengthen your friendship with the Pokémon
- Just having fun with them
- Prepare Curry (see below)
In the passage of the Pokémon Camp, in the trailer, we observe that Alcremie has different colors according to the species we catch!
In the Wild Area, it is possible to visit the Camp of other players.
Make curry on rice
Curry, England's emblematic dish, makes its debut in Pokémon Sword and Shield! In Galar, it is THE dish that everyone cooks and loves to eat (Pokémon as well as human). So you can make some ingredients after you have harvested them. There are about a hundred different recipes!
Here again, you will have to fill in your Curry Dex and unlock all the recipes!
2 new Pokémon!
Water and Flying Types
Make your own League Card
You can create a kind of Trainer or Business Card containing all the essential information about yourself. This card is then distributed throughout the Region and you can customize it as you wish thanks to Rotomi's Card Studio (another feature). Every time you meet a Trainer, you give him your card and he does the same. You can therefore collect information on all the trainers in the game you will meet. All the cards will be stored in an album (and one more collection to complete!)
A new feature is introduced: the Y-Comm! It is thanks to it that you will be able to exchange Pokémon or fight easily over a network via the Internet or local wireless.
While playing, you may observe a sticker on your screen. This means that another player wants to fight or exchange with you.
We will soon detail all these new features in separate guides.
