Video: Pokémon Sword & Shield: We Played The Demo And So It Was
Also this time the arena fights live up to their name because they take place in Pokémon Sword & Shield in a stadium that resembles a huge soccer field. Of course, the newly introduced Dynamax attacks need a lot of space. These are reminiscent of the Z attacks from Pokémon Sun & Moon and can be used for three rounds once activated. Whether the Dynamax attacks really bring more tactical depth into the game or only facilitate difficult (arena) fights, such as enabling a quick end to the fight through correct timing, will be shown in the final game.

Pokémon Sword & Shield already impresses with its special graphic style, which even tops Pokémon Let's Go again. However, we get a little bit of the feeling that Pokémon Sword & Shield, like Pokémon Let's Go, wants to make it far too easy for the player. This will also be shown at the latest on the release on November 15, 2019, when the two editions for the Nintendo Switch appear.
Our first impression: Pokémon sword & shield will certainly be a solid game again and will complement the series with the new Galar region. However, we cannot hope for a Pokémon revolution from the widely announced switch game.
