To all Pokemon fans out there, we are pleased to announce that Pokemon Sword and Shield is now available to buy. Both titles are on the shelves as of today (15th November 2019). In both titles, you have the choice to start out with the same three Pokemon, Grookey, Scorbunny and Sobble.
As with most Pokemon games, there are multiple versions available on release. As per other releases, one of the main differences is that each title contains exclusive Pokemon. The idea behind this is that you trade with friends and family who have the title you did not purchase. There are quite a few differences, so you may want to check which Pokemon are exclusive to which version so you make the right purchase.
Not only are there different Pokemon to collect but you will also have exclusive gym battles. In Pokemon Sword, you will be able to fight a specialist in fighting-type Pokemon, named Bea. Whilst in Pokemon Shield you will fight Allister who specializes in ghost-type Pokemon. Again, this is something that might sway your purchase.
As per most Pokemon titles, Sword and Shield are only available on the Nintendo Switch. We would love to hear which one you purchased and which starter Pokemon you chose! Let us know in the comments below.
