Pokémon become huge with Dynamax & Gigantamax
Dynamax is a phenomenon unique to specific locations in the Galar region, where Pokémon are able to take on gigantic appearances. Dynamax Pokémon become tremendously strong and their stats get a boost but they will return to normal after three turns.
Only certain species of Pokémon can Gigantamax—and even among such species, only rare specimens will be able to. Gigantamax Pokémon become bigger and it boosts the power of the Pokémon. It also allows each Gigantamax Pokémon to use a unique move known as a G-Max Move!

How in the world did starters not make it? Bulbasaur and Squirtle among lots of other starters that didn't make the cut! Pokemon go has been a worldwide phenomenum and really got people familiar with gen 1 pokemon, so it seems a poor choice to cut Dragonite and Exeggutor. My favorite silly pokemon like Jigglypuff, Slowpoke, Lickitung and Psyduck didn't make it. More than half of the total Pokemon aren't in this game!
I do play for a good game. I do play for adventure. I do play to see new pokemon. I play for a lot of reasons, but I certainly play to play with MY pokemon. I can't believe that this is the first game to not let me do that. I wish I hadn't opened it so I could return it. It's fun to play the main story with new faces, but I can't believe my Pokemon are totally missing even from post-game.
It's insane that the price of the games goes up by 50% this generation while the number of Pokemon available is cut by more than 60%!!! A franchise that brings in so much money can certainly afford to hire enough people to do this right.
It's supposed to contain an in-game item for her to use but the code was invalid.
I got mine but it doesn't appear to be recognized when I enter it for redemption section on my eshop account.
Has anyone else had this issue and knows who to contact?
*** UPDATE *** Review below still stands. Here are some additional thoughts after I have played through quite a bit (I may still update further if anything else comes up):
- Most importantly, this game is really fun and will hook you. There is lots to do and while you still have the one-town-at-a-time limitations from classic Pokemon games, you can catch far more Pokemon earlier than in the past. They add a catch-level limit in Sword & Shield similar to the control-level limit in past gens to keep you from becoming too powerful, too fast (i.e. "With this badge you can catch pokemon up to level 20" vs. previously "With this badge, pokemon up to level 20 will obey you"), and thus they eliminate the obedience aspect.
- It is worth subscribing to Switch online for this game. I have pretty much every game console and this is the first time I've ever paid for an online subscription, but I'm glad I did. You get TONS of free items, and half the fun is in trading with other trainers. However, you can still do local trades/battles if both players are using the same wifi network. I do like that there's an option that doesn't require the subscription. Also, I'm not much of an online gamer as I don't tend to like playing with strangers, but I do enjoy other trainers' help in the Raid Battles, as at the end you ALL get the chance to catch the Dynamaxed Pokemon, which is nice.
- If you pre-ordered this set and have trouble redeeming your promotional code for the in-game bonus, ignore the instructions Amazon sent you about redeeming it via the Nintendo store, as that is incorrect and won't work: instead, click "mystery gift" from within in your game menu and input the code there. Voila!
- This gen brings together some of the best elements of all the Pokemon games to date with a few really appreciated improvements: both my partner and I enjoy that you can see the Pokemon in the "overworld" (i.e. see them moving around in the tall grass) like in LGE/LGP and can thus avoid them if you're in a hurry, but I'm glad they stuck with the classic catching mechanism. We are so relieved that you get the bike early in the game, and we LOVE the new portable box (so you can actually make use of more of the hundreds of Pokemon you catch by changing them out as you go along, as opposed to letting 98% of them sit in the PC because you don't want to walk all the way back to a Pokecenter). The Pokejobs (one thing only accessible via the Pokecenter PCs) is an interesting new way to train them up similar to Poke Pelago training in US/UM. I do miss the DexNav functionality from OR/AS, but being able to see most of them in the overworld helps cut down time spent hunting particular 'mon.
I have been a fan of the Pokemon games since the R/B/Y versions came out on GameBoy Color. A few days ago, I turned 30, so my present to myself (and my partner) is this double-pack of Pokemon Sword and Shield. We have really enjoyed playing some of the DS titles cooperatively, purchasing the alternating versions of the game - i.e. Alpha Sapphire for me, Omega Ruby for him - and trading Pokemon back and forth between our two 3DS systems. We actually went so far as to get a Switch Lite so we could play these games cooperatively on the Switch, as well. So far, both of us are very happy with the new titles.
First of all, gameplay ought to be very familiar to fans of the previous Pokemon titles: battles are still your choice of switch or set style, turn-based, with 4 available moves to choose from per Pokemon. You still get 6 in your party. Catching, battling, and levelling up are still the same. Of course, Sword and Sheild introduce the new mechanisms of Dynamaxing and Gigantamaxing in Raid battles. In my opinion, this is not so dissimilar from the introduction of Mega-Evolutions, Z-moves, etc. in previous gen games. It is just the newest twist on the familiar trope.
Furthermore, many players are concerned that some classic Pokemon from past gen games will not be available in Sword & Shield: while it's always a disappointment to see your favourite 'mon no longer available, each gen has cherrypicked which classics will reappear in the new Pokemon region and which will not be catchable during normal gameplay. The difference with these titles is that players will also not be able to trade or transfer in unavailable Pokemon as was always possible on the 3DS titles. Personally, this has not impacted my enjoyment of Pokemon Sword so far; there are plenty of new Pokemon to play with, and I would not be surprised to see those missing classics reappear in future titles for 3DS or even Switch.
One thing I noticed is that some of the in-game text (at least when played in English) is not thoroughly vetted for grammatical errors or incomprehensible wording. I anticipate that will be patched shortly, but for now, you'll get occasional lines like, "Wow, do you have flash new phone?" (which makes no more sense in context than it does here) or "You put the item back to your bag". It's a minor detail, but can take you out of gameplay for a second. Otherwise, the graphics are really lovely, the music is familiar and fun, and the story is just what I'd expect from a Pokemon title. It translates well to the Switch environment.
Personally, I play these games for nostalgia and fun: perhaps serious Pokemon trainers or competitors might find more objections to Pokemon Sword and Shield, but so far, I think they're quite fun for the casual aficionado.
Also, not sure if it's just me, but I had an issue using the promotional code received from Amazon for the pre-order bonus of an in-game backpack. My code would not go through and instead gave me an error message. They're working to send me a new code, but it took quite a long time to get an Amazon representative to help me.

This might as well be a 3DS game, considering on how uninspired and lazily made it looks. I really wish I didn't waste my money on this
I can live with the reduce moves and cut out National Pokedex, but I was expecting more with such an anticipated release
