More details were revealed today about Max Raid Battles and the Wild Area, new features in the highly anticipated games, Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. A new Gym Leader and Poké Ball Plus compatibility with the games were also announced. The newest additions to the main series of the Pokémon role-playing video game franchise, Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will be launching November 15, 2019 exclusively on the Nintendo Switch™ system.

Pokémon in the Wild Area
The Wild Area, a vast expanse of land in the Galar region, is home to a wide variety of Pokémon. When exploring the Wild Area for the first time, Trainers will encounter powerful wild Pokémon who are constantly on guard. The types of Pokémon that appear as well as battlefield conditions can be affected by the weather in the Wild Area. For example, a Trainer who enters a battle during a thunderstorm will find the power of their Water- and Electric-type moves increased.

Max Raid Battles
Max Raid Battles occur in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield when four players join forces to take on a wild Dynamax Pokémon in the Wild Area. Trainers can find other players who want to participate in a Max Raid Battle through a notification on their Y-Comm, a new feature in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. On the Y-Comm screen, players can also trade Pokémon and have Link Battle via the internet or local WiFi connection.

Wild Dynamax Pokémon can also create mysterious barriers that prevent almost all damage. To damage a Pokémon behind one of these barriers, Trainers will need to break it down by repeatedly attacking it. When a player’s Pokémon are knocked out in the Max Raid Battles, they can still assist other Trainers by cheering them on. If a Trainer emerges victorious from a Max Raid Battle, not only will all participating Trainers have an opportunity to catch the defeated Dynamax Pokémon, they will also be rewarded with many useful items.

Nessa, A Water-type Gym Leader
Pokémon Gyms are found in stadiums throughout the Galar region and attract Trainers that are experts in specific types of Pokémon.

The Poké Ball Plus will light up and vibrate and even the Pokémon’s cry can be heard occasionally. Newly purchased Poké Ball Plus’ will contain the Mythical Pokémon Mew. If players link a new Poké Ball Plus to Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield they will be able to receive this Mew in their linked game.

The world of Pokémon games is more diverse than ever, with exciting titles for Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices. Now Trainers can bring all their Pokémon together with Pokémon HOME, a new cloud service app that lets players continue their Pokémon adventures beyond a single platform.

With Pokémon HOME, Trainers can manage their collection of Pokémon across many of their games.

Pokémon HOME is expected to launch in early 2020 on iOS and Android devices as well as Nintendo Switch.

Pokémon Sleep

Soon, you'll be able to wake up with Pokémon every morning with Pokémon Sleep, a mobile app coming from The Pokémon Company. Pokémon Sleep brings a gameplay experience unlike any other.
