Pokémon Sword and Shield is not only a worthy start for the series on mainline consoles, but is quite possibly the best entry in the series. With the new Pokémon, Dynamax raids, gyms, and the expansive Wild Area, Pokémon Sword and Shield filled me with a joy I rarely feel playing games.

I’ve caught them all throughout every generation, I have battled competitively, and I’ve never missed a main-series Pokemon.Sword and Shield are to-date the best Pokemon games. My last favorite was Pokemon Black/White because of the pacing, story, and variety of Pokémon available during the campaign. Sword and Shield is the first true generational leap in quality of life, graphics, and game mechanics since those DS games.Yes, I t’s disappointing that we cannot catch every Pokémon. But the sheer variety available will make you quickly forget any limitation in choice because of it.I’m excited to watch this game evolve. If Game Freak utilize the Wild Area and internet connectivity in creative ways we could be looking at a Pokémon game that will be truly enormous. Who knows? We may even see them add Pokémon through it! If not, we always have the next game and the next and the next.If main-series games continue to be as fun and well-crafted as Sword and Shield, I for one will be one happy Pokémon fan.

Bad press aside, I found Pokemon Shield to be a solid entry in the Pokemon franchise. If only the difficulty was a bit elevated for seasoned players.

Pokémon Sword and Shield is a game that knows how to keep intact the inheritance it receives from previous titles of the saga and, at the same time, introduces a series of new elements that will lead the franchise into the future. In an attempt to be a gateway for everyone, Game Freak's new project will please both newcomers and more experienced players because, although some sections of this new installment have received less attention, it still has a content which will be attractive enough for every coach to find his place in the new region of Galar.
