🚨 Galar Research Update 🚨 from Sonia! | #PokemonSwordShield

Sonia needs your help, Trainers!


Sonia, who works as Professor Magnolia’s assistant, has asked for you to help her with her Pokémon research. We hope that you’ll be happy to lend her a hand!

Starting at 6:00 a.m. PDT on Friday, October 4, we will broadcast live footage for 24 hours from a camera set up in Glimwood Tangle—a strange forest located deep within the Galar region. This is your chance to get to know the various Pokémon that make their home in this forest! You may notice things that surprise you!


My name’s Sonia, and I’m a Pokémon researcher. Here in Galar, I’m always helping out with research for my gran—Professor Magnolia, that is! I’m sending this message because I could really use your help with some research I’m doing. Next week, a camera will be set up in a strange forest here in Galar known as Glimwood Tangle, and the camera will begin broadcasting live footage. The broadcast will last for 24 hours! If you could take a gander when you have time, that’d be just great. Thanks in advance!
