The wait is officially over for Pokémon Sword and Shield! The latest duo of Pokémon games are now available for purchase around the world for Nintendo Switch. Pokémon Sword and Shield allow you to choose from three new partner Pokémon and encounter never-before-seen Pokémon. Explore the Wild Area, a vast expanse of land where the player can freely control the camera.
Once a year, exemplary Trainers take part in the Champion Cup. This tournament is broadcast on live TV, so the entire region tunes in to see who will be chosen as the next Champion!

Gym battles are such a big deal in the Galar region that some corporations will support Gyms and their Leaders through sponsorships. You might see their logos on Gym Leader uniforms or featured in other facilities. pic.twitter.com/oySpOG7mtq

Next, you’ll have to collect Gym Badges by traveling to Gyms throughout the Galar region! Milo and Nessa are just two of the powerful Gym Leaders you'll meet during your journey. Have you battled them yet, Trainers? 🍃💧 pic.twitter.com/1hiqr7BHuQ

Before you can begin the Gym Challenge, you’ll have to get a letter of endorsement from a Gym Leader or another notable Trainer. But no need to worry—a certain champion with a Charizard will be vouching for you. 😉
Have you gotten your endorsement from Leon yet, Trainers? pic.twitter.com/6sxx1ikS0U
