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
Was disappointed even with priority shipping I didnt receive my copy on release day and only one code for the amazon exclusive pre order of gold bag, which i end up using on my sword edition.
I played the game for 17 hours straight and cannot stop; I haven't finished the game because there are so many playable elements that I fall in love with.
Comparing to old pokemon games:
1) I can see my friends walking around in the wild area and I camp with them. We can see each other's pokemon, so I started to spend more time catching rare pokemon so that I can show off.
2) I needed more money to buy pretty clothes, do makeup and change hairstyles so that I can amaze my friends; I start to battle NPCs to make money. To win the battle faster and make money faster, I needed to build a better pokemon team and build a better move combination.
3) I fight Dynamax monster with friends in the wild areas. To show off my pokemon skills, I spend more time to figure out the best move combinations for new pokemon at each stage of the game. Yes, I like showing off ;) and my friends too.
4) I am more addicted to berries because I want to make different curries.
5) Beating the gym is not just walking around and battling with annoying NPCs. There are more interactive puzzles to solve and "I NEED THEIR MONEY TO BUY MORE CLOTHES!". Gym battles are excited, there are audiences cheering for you.
6) A better soundtrack, it makes gameplay much more immersive and excited.
7) Great and beautiful old pokemon game core is kept: Collect, trade and battle. And new features serve for these game core well.
8) You can see pokemon walk around. Unlike old pokemon games, now I can avoid unnecessary battles. Most importantly, pokemons are so cute when they wander around!
9) The most amazing thing for pokemon games since the old series; I call it "pokemon culture": it brings your friends together and you guys will discuss your discoveries like scientists.
However, there are disadvantages:
1) I played a physical copy and turned off the auto-save feature as others suggest. The sd card issue did not happen to me. If the sd card issue is related to the game, this is BAAAD.
2) In the wild zone, other players are lagging(not sync). It's 2019, really, this should not be an issue.
3) Hmmm... What happened to Gorythmic???
4) Even though my fav pokemon is not gone, I feel sorry for those whose fav got cut.
5) Where is pokemon bank? :(
I am glad that gamefreak made changes to improve the gameplay. Good work!
The lack of a free camera that I can rotate is a major flaw made worse by the fact you can rotate your camera view in the Wild Area... but only in the Wild Area. Nowhere else.
This inability to rotate your field of view makes the cities and towns feel small and like routes where you're going left to right like it's a Mario game from the 80s or 90s. It's especially bad when you learn the 2 biggest 'cities' (they're small) open into the Wild Area where you can rotate your field of view. It really harmed the overall experience. The designs and variations of the cities/towns was great... they just felt small, a lot of it was off limits artwork like a Mario game .
Then there are other problems. I liked some of the gym uniforms. You win that uniform after you beat the gym... only you can't wear it to your next gym battles. Your default uniform is the one you will wear. Why can't I change to the water gym or the fighting gym uniform? It seems like such an obvious thing to do but it was not done. Disappointing.
The Wild Area had good moments and bad ones. I was unable to catch Pokemon of certain levels because I did not have the gym badges. I really wanted a Ghastly to turn into a Gengar but by the time I had enough badges to go back and catch one... they were nowhere to be found. I eventually got frustrated and continued through the gyms and only had the Ghastlys spawn again after I had beaten 7 of the 8 gyms.
The storyline itself can be frustrating at times where you're constantly forced into dialogue or cutscenes with your rival, Leon the Champion or Sonia or sometimes a mix of the three. It's too much and it felt like my hand was being held for too long early on in the game.
Team Yell as the 'bad guys' was underwhelming compared to Team Rocket from the early games or even Pokemon Lets Go. Pokemon Lets Go did a better job and that was supposed to be the less in-depth, 'easier' game. And they had more content and did a better job. I'm not expecting much... but I expected more than we got from Team Yell and Pokemon Sword and Shield.
I have more issues and gripes with the games. If you love Pokemon and have been a longtime fan... it's probably worth picking this up but if you're considering Pokemon - you'll find better games out there with more content, better graphics, a better story, whatever the case may be.
Hopefully Nintendo and Pokemon learn some lessons here and improve for their next release on the Switch because this was a disappointment after really enjoying Pokemon Lets Go. I will not be pre-ordering a Pokemon game again and I will wait for reviews to come out before making a decision on whether to buy.
This game was underwhelming and filled with missed opportunities.
There is less postgame content than previous entries in the series, though they plan to release more through a ~$40 CAN expansion pass. While I don't inherently dislike the idea of expansion passes, it is disappointing to not see more content in an $80 CAN game.
I need to share my experience of feeling being tricked by Amazon SG into pre-ordering this double pack. The reason being when this double pack initially listed on Amazon SG, it included a image that clearly shows an in-game item Gold Studded Leather Case. I was under the impression that I would get that item by pre-ordering from Amazon SG.
However, when I asked customer service 12hrs after I received the double pack, all I received was "It's for illustration purpose". The image had since been removed. Heck, why not you don't include the image in the first place? I could have pre-ordered from somewhere else and receive whatever pre-order bonus they offer. Instead, I pre-ordered from Amazon SG with no pre-order bonus at all.
