Sword and Shield Pokémon

Several new details have emerged for Pokémon Sword and Shield, with a new explanatory video also on abilities, stadiums, Dynamax and more.

From Pokémon Company came a new video dedicated to Pokémon Sword and Shield, which illustrates several details about the games including skills, stadiums, Dynamax and other features. 

As for Dynamaxing, the new feature characteristic of Pokémon Sword and Shield includes many new features: it not only allows you to greatly enlarge the size of the creatures and increase their power but allows you to use Max Move that has interesting effects. For example, the Maxi Mossa of the water type, Max Geyser, allows you to activate the rain condition during the fight, while the combat type, Max Knuckle, increases the attack power of all allies.

Numerous abilities and objects are present in Pokémon Sword and Shield, like the Neutralizing Gas that neutralizes the effects of other Pokémon abilities and prevents their use. Some Pokémon has hidden abilities, such as those that can be captured in Max Raids. Some of these can access Gigantamaxing, others have hidden abilities like Corviknight’s Mirror Armor, which bounces any effect that reduces the stats from it. New objects can be combined with specific moves to give coaches an advantage in battle, such as Room Service and Eject Pack: the first reduces the speed of the Pokémon when the Trick Room move is used, while Eject Pack allows you to automatically replace a Pokémon with stat reduced.

In Pokémon Sword and Shield, coaches can also connect to the internet and fight each other in single or double battles within the Battle Stadiums. In these, you can take part in Battles ranked with opponents from around the world with a matchmaking system based on the level of the players.
