The first on-line contest of Pokémon Sword and Shield – Galar Beginnings – begins on December 6th, shortly after the release date on November 15th. The Pokémon Company announced the event just over a week before launching the game on Nintendo Switch.
The one-match competition will be held from December 6th to 8th, but the deadline for registration is November 15th, according to The Pokémon Company until December 5th. Only Pokémon received in Pokémon Sword and Shield are eligible to fight, but "certain Pokémon" are not permitted. Three of the six Pokémon of a player will join the Battle Team, each of which will automatically be raised to level 50 for the Games.
"In the Galar Beginnings Contest, you can make your Pokémon great by making it more dynamic. or they can even change their shape by being gigantamaxed, "said the Pokémon Company. "These effects only last three rounds per fight, so use them wisely!"
This morning, The Pokémon Company has announced that players in Pokémon Sword and Shield can access their Pokémon box from "almost" anywhere, which means it it is not necessary to go to a Pokémon Center to exchange creatures.
