Pokémon Sword and Shield

The Pokémon Company have shared a video clip of the Wild Area Search diorama that players will be able to explore later this year:

Pokémon Sword and Shield (Switch) comes out on November 15th worldwide.

Pokémon GO

Niantic have announced a new competitive feature for Pokémon GO, based on Trainer Battles: the GO Battle League. It will go live sometime in early 2020.

Here’s what the feature is all about:

Like many Pokémon GO features, GO Battle League will encourage players to get out and explore the world with Pokémon. Trainers will be able to walk in order to earn entry into the GO Battle League, then battle opponents from around the globe through an online matching system and rise in the ranks of the league. We hope this feature will make the Pokémon GO battling experience more competitive and accessible to more Trainers.

More details about the Go Battle League will be shared “soon” via Dev Insights videos.

Speaking of Pokémon GO, some Halloween-themed avatar items are now available in the Style Shop:

  • Zubat Bag
  • Pikachu Onesie
  • Cubone Cap
  • Litwick Cap
  • Mimikyu Bag
