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!

Look, instead, go buy Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Dragon Quest XI or The Witcher 3. These masterpieces offer a superior story, engaging battle mechanics, and modern visuals. It's a shame that Pokemon has fallen. Super Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild set the benchmark of what a Nintendo franchise can offer on the Switch. However, Pokemon Sword and Switch have set a new low for the series. To buy this game is to perpetuate low standards in a multimillion franchise and corporate greed from Game Freak's part. Save Pokemon and boycott Sword and Shield!
This trash heap is the result of complacency, and a lack of effort and dedication. If it had been developed with care and the consumer's satisfaction in mind, it would have been a polished title with a lot of content complementing the new features. Sadly, this is not the case.
Bugs, no endgame, half pokedex, mediocre graphics, less features than previous games...should I keep talking? Save your money and don't buy this dumpster fire of a game.
- Graphics are OBJECTIVELY worse than Let's Go Pikachu and I would argue they're worse than Pokemon USUM. This terrible excuse for graphics is why we lost over half of all Pokemon in the game? What a load of garbage.
- We lost over half of all Pokemon in the game. Not just uncatchable, but they're not even in the game, you can't transfer into the games because they excluded excluded metadata for them and decided to exclude EXISTING Pokemon models from the game, which is what they did for other Pokemon.
- Only 80 new Pokemon overall. They didn't even try.
- Their new Pokemon battle concept is essentially: "Look, the Pokemon is now bigger! See how big it is? Pretty cool, huh?" No creativity, it sounds like a throwaway idea someone said jokingly during a meeting that they took as a serious comment and went with it. It's the stupidest thing I've ever heard of.
- You'd think that Pokemon becoming bigger versions of themselves would mean Pokemon size would be an important thing to scale. Nope. They have Wailord shown as being slightly smaller as the 4'10" trainer (~150 cm). Wailord is supposed to be a 50 ft (~15m) long behemoth. But nope, huge (literally) details are no longer important.
- Finally, the straw that broker the camel's back: the game froze when I was battling in the Ice-gym. I had auto-save on, but also kept manually saving anyway because I couldn't trust anything in the game at that point. When I restarted the game after it froze, the save point there was in Route 6, basically half the game ago.
At that point I juts gave up on the game. I lost half the progress because this terrible-developed game couldn't bother to QA their garbage product. I'm going to try to return the game, but doubt I'll be able to. This left a bad taste in my mouth and I may never buy another Pokemon game again unless management changes and they start making respectable games again.
-Slight Upgrade on graphics (Compared to Lets Go Pikachu).
-First (Next Gen) Pokémon to come to the switch.
-At least for me it seemed faster loading for battles..compared to sun/moon
-The story is below average.
-The pacing is slow.(Very Linear).
-The writing is sub par for Pokémon games.
It’s pretty sad to see my favorite series hit a new low. Am I surprised no, because no matter how anyone feels about the game (liked or disliked), the game still sells the same every generation. So they don’t really care about feedback. You would think with all the money they’ve made through this franchise, that they’d atleast try to make it more unique, better, and innovative.
I would only recommend to those who just love Pokémon as a series, but if you’re expecting something new and innovative, this might not be the game you’re looking for

1.-La dificultad bajo mucho con respecto a sol y luna.
2.-solo ofrece 400 Pokémon.
3.-la experiencia de viajar por las rutas es pobre, pero se compensa con las áreas extensas.
4.-es buen juego pero puede mejorar con algún parche que salga en el futuro.
