Another day, another game potentially leaking ahead of its scheduled reveal date, except this one is a little bit more unique because Pokemon Sword and Shield will be receiving its own Nintendo Direct in just an hour and a half. Either way, a recent Reddit post seems to have leaked some of the bigger details about the two games.
The post states that Pokemon Sword and Shield will launch on November 15th, and that the version exclusive Legendary Pokemon will be wolves, something already hinted at by the logo for both games. Roaming Pokemon will make a return, as will Z-Moves or a Z-Move like equivalent. Z-Moves were a super move style attack introduced in Sun and Moon.
Perhaps the biggest feature, literally, is a new giant Pokemon gimmick, which is exactly as it sounds. You’ll encounter Pokemon out in the wild that are huge, and you can also temporarily make your own Pokemon bigger during stadiums and gyms. Basically, Pokemon Sword and Shield will allow you to recreate Kaiju battles with your favourite Pokemon.
While a lone Reddit post with a bunch of suspect, unverified information would be cause for skepticism, the Reddit user PracticalBrush12 has had history of leaking game content before, with their previous Ghost Recon and Persona 5S leaks turning out to be true. Either way, you won’t have to wait long to find out the truth. Be sure to watch the Direct below, and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
