Likely inspired by Pokémon GO, Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield introduce Max Raid Battles to the main series. During these encounters, up to four players may team up to defeat a rival Pokémon. However, these won’t be just any Pokémon. These will all be giant Dynamax Pokémon!
During the Pokémon Direct 6.5.2019, series’ developer Game Freak revealed a number of new features. One of the most notable was easily the addition of Dynamax. As with Mega Evolution and Z-Moves before it, Dynamax is a region defining ability designed to up the ante of Pokémon battles!
With E3 just around the corner, gamers everywhere are all aboard the hype train. In anticipation of this, Nintendo released their latest direct for the upcoming Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. What a direct it was! For the very first time, fans were introduced to Dynamax, Max Raid Battles, and a brand new cast of characters. Miss any details from the 6.5.2019 direct? Gotta catch ’em all!
While the 8th Generation of Pokémon may not release until 2019, that isn’t to say that the Role-playing series won’t soon be making its debut on the Nintendo Switch. Cue Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go Eevee!
