Not everyone is here, but the producers of Pokemon have a reason why.
Pokemon Sword and Shield, the first major generation of Pokemon games that comes to the Nintendo Switch, unfortunately does not make you as good as anyone has ever done, as it does not catch every Pokemon will be in the new generation.
Pokemon Sword and Shield will not be able to provide the full Pokedex license, according to an interview recently conducted by Famitsu with producer Junichi Masuda.
Instead, Sword and Shield are only allowed to admit Pokemon, which are contained in the Galar region of Pokedex. Masuda told Famitsu that much of the reasoning was due to the growing number of Pokemon species. Relying on balance issues and the intensity of work as reasons for this decision, Masuda and the team were currently "undecided" about whether additional Pokémon could be added after the start of the game.
800 Pokémon and Counting
"We already have well over 800 Pokémon types, and these games will include more, and now that they are active, they will be added. We are making the Nintendo Switch with much higher fidelity and with Higher quality animations, "Masuda said in a follow-up interview with US Gamer. "But even more than that, it depends on the combat system, we make sure we keep everything in balance and give all the Pokémon that appear in the games a chance to shine."
"It's not just about being a brand new Pokémon in the Galar region Pokedex; There will still be a lot of favorites fans will use to accomplish what they have experienced before.
Pokemon Sword and Shield at the E3 201
At the E3 2019, Nintendo featured two of these new models. Pokemon players from the Galar region can count on an encounter, including the delightful lightning-corgi Yamper.
Masuda's original comments to Famitsu were taken by some fans with anger, who believed it could be easy to model all of these Pokemon for use in Sword and Shield. As a specific Twitter user hinting that the modeling could be done in five minutes, a series of artists began in response to publishing their five-minute Pokemon models to demonstrate what could be created in that short span of time definitely not the visual fidelity seen in Sword and Shields models.
The Pokedex Restriction on Sword and Shield is not the only thing we've learned about the upcoming pair of games. We've earned 22 more Pokémon sword and shield details, including the fact that Sword and Shield support some PokeBall Plus features. Immediately prior to the E3 2019, a special Pokemon Sword and Shield Nintendo Direct gave us a closer look at the game and announced a specific release date.
