Now Playing: Pokemon Sword And Shield - New Pokemon, Characters And Gigantamaxing

We're also going to learn more about Sword and Shield later this week. The Pokemon Company announced a new Galar Research Update coming on August 7. The most recent one revealed Gigantamaxing and Sword and Shield have version-exclusive gyms among lots of other details. We'll have to see what the company has planned for this next reveal.

Sword and Shield will launch on November 15, just a week after the special "Zacian and Zamazenta Edition" Switch Lite on November 8. These games have been the subject of some controversy upon word that you can't transfer your entire collection. Producer Junichi Masuda even responded to the controversy in a statement.
