Pokémon Direct Highlights
Fairly short video from the Pokémon Direct live stream, but it gave a lot of beautiful new information about Gen 8; Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield! I’ll add the full stream link at the bottom, but first: the trailer!
First, let’s introduce a few new Pokémon into the fold:
My favorite part so far? The scale of this new Pokémon world, with large expanses of wild land where you can encounter Pokémon in unique ways - and at unique times.
And yes, at least when out in the wild, it seems almost like a true open world rpg:
And there’s a new unique feature, Co-Op raids against giant “Dynamax” Pokémon. One member of your Pokémon raid group has the ability to Dynamax one of their own Pokémon for three turns, drastically increasing the damage they can do in the raid. Some Pokémon can only be caught from Dynamax raids in the open world, so prepare your friends for a whole new experience! (Also, gym battles will involve the Dynamax feature as well, adding a new level of strategy.)
It wouldn’t be a Pokémon game without new legendary Pokémon, so we gain Zacian and Zamazenta!

A little extra breakdown from LeekDuck.com:
As soon as I finish Pokemon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum series and heart gold, soul silver, I might just go to barnes and noble to buy these pokemon manga. The box sets on amazon for Black and White are like $100 or more so I might have to buy these things seperately from amazon or just go to barnes and noble to do that.
