Press Release - New Nintendo Direct Highlights Next Wave of Games Coming to Nintendo Switch

Pokémon Sword / Pokémon Shield: New details (and two new Pokémon!) were revealed for the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield games, launching exclusively for Nintendo Switch on Nov. 15.

  • Polteageist is a ghost-type Pokémon, and makes a home for itself by hiding among dishes at hotels and restaurants. Its body is made of tea, and it may even let a trusting Trainer have a taste of its tea. The flying- and water-type Pokémon Cramorant will swallow absolutely anything that looks hearty enough. It has an exclusive ability called Gulp Missile. While using Surf or Dive in battle, it will counter when attacked.
  • Players will be able to travel through the new Galar region in style. In this game, players can outfit their main Trainer in tops, bottoms, outerwear, gloves, new hairstyles and even a little makeup. During their journey, players can camp any time at Pokémon Camp. While there, players can play with Pokémon and get to know them better. In the new Wild Area, players can visit other players’ camps as well. Up to four players and their Pokémon can hang out at a camp together. Pokémon Camp is also a great place to cook up some Curry on Rice. In Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, there are many types of delicious Curry on Rice that can be registered to the Curry Dex.

Cramorant

Cramorant

Category: Gulp Pokémon
Type: Flying/Water
Height: 2'7"
Weight: 39.7 lbs.
Ability: Gulp Missile

A voracious eater—Cramorant is insatiable. When it comes to food, it will try to swallow anything it can fit in its mouth. Sometimes it will swallow things that aren’t its intended prey, spitting them out in a hurry once it realizes its mistake.

It never forgets its bond with its Trainer. Cramorant can be forgetful, but it will never forget a Trainer it grows to trust. However, it seems that even Trainers will face fierce attacks from their Cramorant if they try to steal its food.

Cramorant’s Ability, Gulp Missile, is a new Ability introduced in these titles, and it can be triggered during battles. After Cramorant uses Surf or Dive, it will return with a catch in its mouth. If it takes damage while in this state, Cramorant will retaliate by spitting out its catch at the attacker!

Polteageist

Cramorant

Category: Black Tea Pokémon
Type: Ghost
Height: 8"
Weight: .9 lbs.
Ability: Weak Armor

Black tea with a distinct aroma and flavor. Polteageist’s body is made from black tea and is said to have a very distinct aroma and flavor. It will only allow a Trainer it trusts to sample its tea. However, drinking too much can lead to indigestion or an upset stomach, so be careful!

Pests for hotels and restaurants. Many Polteageist make their homes inside hotels and restaurants, disguising themselves and hiding among the tableware. They can pour their power into leftover tea and create even more of their kind, so they’re often treated as pests.

Play with Pokémon in your Pokémon Camp

Cramorant

You can enjoy a Pokémon Camp almost anywhere anytime you’re exploring in the Galar region! If you ever feel like spending some time with the Pokémon in your party or cooking up a nice meal with them, then there’s no need to hesitate—in many cases, you can just set up camp right then and there!

Become friendly with lots of Pokémon

You can enjoy a moment of relaxation and fun with the Pokémon in your party through Pokémon Camp! Watch your Pokémon closely as they have fun camping, and as they play together, you might discover a new side to them that you don’t normally get to see!

Just give a call to any Pokémon that’s far away, and it’ll happily come to you!

Image Image

You can also play with your Pokémon while camping. There are several toys that your Pokémon will enjoy—you can play with them using a Poké Toy or a variety of bouncing balls! Take some time to play with your Pokémon and get to know them better!

Image Image

About the different appearances of Alcremie

Alcremie is known to be able to create whipped cream from its hands. Apparently, there are several variations of color and flavor for this whipped cream, as well as the decorations on Alcremie’s body.

Image Image

Make curry on rice, the dish that’s all the rage in Galar!

In your Pokémon Camp, you’ll be able to make wondrous curries that are hugely popular in the Galar region! Curry is a dish with tons of variety. You can create curries of many different flavors depending on which ingredients and Berries you choose to add to your pot! Pour your heart into cooking and create a delicious plate of curry!

The first step to cooking up some curry is choosing the ingredients you want to add. The type of curry you’ll make will change depending on what ingredients and Berries you choose to put in.

Image Image

You’ll need to fan the flames until they’re strong enough and then stir the pot just right to make the best batch of curry!

Image Image

Once you’re done cooking, you and your Pokémon can dig in together! The ingredients you choose change the type of curry you’ll end up with. There are plenty of types of curry, so try to cook them all and complete your Curry Dex!

Image Image

Stop by Pokémon Camps set up by other players

The Wild Area is a vast expanse of open land in the Galar region. There are lots of different ways to connect with other players in the Wild Area, and Pokémon Camps are just one example! You can join the camp of another player or have other players visit your own camp until a total of four players are gathered to interact with Pokémon or make some curry!

If you come across a tent while using local communication or when connected to the internet, it’s a sign that another player has set up their Pokémon Camp there. You can take one of your party Pokémon with you, so why not have a look and join their camp! Membership in the Nintendo Switch Online (paid) service is required for joining other players’ Pokémon Camps using an internet connection. You do not need to be have a membership to play with other players using local communication features.

Image Image

When camping with other players, you can let your Pokémon play with their Pokémon, or you can cook up a big pot of curry and enjoy it together!

Image Image

Make your very own unique League Card

Pokémon Trainers in the Galar region make League Cards for themselves. These cards provide detailed information about the Trainer, and they are traded and given out across the region! As a Trainer, you also have your own League Card! You can use the Card Maker function of Rotomi to customize your card until you hit a design you’re happy with!

Image Image

The Card Maker will give you a lot of freedom in editing your League Card—you’ll be able to change the background, the frame, your expression, your pose, and more!

Image Image

You can trade League Cards with other players, and League Cards are displayed during Link Battles, too. Make one that’s really unique! You’ll be able to check all the League Cards you’ve received from others in your album.

Image Image

Put on your favorite clothes, get a new hairdo, and set out on your adventure in style

As you travel, you’ll come across boutiques and hair salons. By visiting them, you can buy new clothes for yourself or change your hairstyle to freshen things up! There are plenty of different clothing items, hairstyles, and even makeup options, so try out different combinations and show the entire Galar region your favorite look!

Image Image

Find the clothes you want at boutiques

Boutiques always have a wide selection of items, and they’ll be your go-to spots for trying on and buying new clothes. Boutiques can have outerwear, tops, gloves—you name it! You can mix and match styles in any way you want. Boutiques in different towns and cities have different items for sale, so keep your eyes open for that perfect outfit while you travel.

Image Image

Image Image

Head to a hair salon to get a haircut and a new look

Salons let you choose your haircut and hair color, style your eyebrows, or even swap out your color contacts! Spice up your adventure by changing your look to match your favorite outfit or the uniform you wear during your Gym Challenge!

Image Image

Trading Pokémon is easy with Surprise Trades—you just never know who you might trade with!

In these games, you can use Y-Comm to do things like trade Pokémon and have Link Battles via the internet or local communication. If you see a stamp pop up during your adventure, it might be a sign that another player is looking for somebody to connect with! You’ll be able to trade and have Link Battles with friends by checking these stamps, but they can also be invitations from people you’ve never met before!

Image Image Image

One of the features available on the Y-Comm menu is the Surprise Trade. Select a Pokémon from your Boxes that you’re willing to trade, and that’s it! A trading partner will automatically be found as you continue on your adventure!

The game will keep trying to match you with a trading partner even as you engage in the Pokémon battles or other activities you’ll find while exploring Galar, so there’s no need for you to hunt for a trading partner or feel like you’re left waiting!

These trades can be carried out with players from around the world if you’re using the internet. But with local communication, you can even get a trade from someone around you before you know what’s happening! Head out to lots of different places, and see if you can get a Surprise Trade! You won’t know what Pokémon you’ll get in exchange for your Pokémon until you actually receive it. If you’re lucky, you might end up with a rare Pokémon.

Membership in the Nintendo Switch Online (paid) service is required to participate in Link Trades and Link Battles using the internet. There’s no need to set up a membership for local communication use.
