Pokémon Sword and Shield are now available for purchase around the world for Nintendo Switch. The latest duo of Pokémon games allows 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. You can also team up with other players locally or online in the new multiplayer co-op Max Raid Battles. With today being March 1 in certain parts of the world, Overcast is the current weather at all Wild Area locations, giving players a greater chance to encounter various weather-exclusive Pokémon.
