The sub division within Nintendo, The Pokemon Company, has announced that they will be unveiling new information for their upcoming title Pokemon Sword and Shield. It will take place this Wednesday, August 7, and it’s going to be another Galar Research Update.
Despite the huge tease, no concrete information was given in this announcement, which only begs the question, what are we in for this Wednesday? We’ve already seen when the game comes out and who the legendaries are, not to mention the insane Raid’s that made everyone’s mind explode. In addition, the company also showed us how the Gym’s will work, as well as both versions having their own exclusive Gym’s making the two playthroughs that much more dynamic.
One major possibility is that we could finally see who the evil team will be in Sword and Shield. Every Pokemon game has a dastardly organization, with Team Rocket being the first and most famous, so it wouldn’t be such a stretch for them to reveal who we will be fighting with to try and save the world, or at least the Pokemon world. Another potential reveal may be showing off some brand new Pokemon.
The Galar Research Update will take place on Wednesday, August 7 at 6:00 am PST/9:00 am EST. Pokemon Sword and Shield launches on November 15 for the Nintendo Switch.
