September 5, 2019 Franchesca Rivera

We’ve got new features for you about Pokemon Sword and Shield straight from the latest Nintendo Direct!

We know you’re all excited for Pokemon Sword and Shield’s release on November 15. So you’ll be happy to hear that we finally have an update on what we can expect from the new game! And so, in today’s Nintendo Direct release, they unveiled three new features as well as two new Pokemon in the upcoming Pokemon Sword and Shield. Read on below for all the details!

Character Customization

Nintendo

You can finally fulfill your #gymleadersona goals! Because they have just confirmed that character customization in-game will have more variety than just being able to pick tops and bottoms. Players will now be able to pick from a variety of jackets, gloves, and other accessories.

Nintendo

As well as have the ability to change hairstyle, hair color, and even add a bit of makeup if you want! It’s definitely going to feel more immersive as if it’s actually us in the game!

Pokemon Camp

Another cool feature that was announced in the latest Nintendo Direct is the Pokemon Camp feature. It’s a place where you can interact with the Pokemon you’ve caught all throughout the Galar region!

Nintendo

You can use toys and play with them, make them interact with each other, and even talk to them! You can access the camp at any time. And you should really visit often because getting to know your Pokemon better will improve your performance in battles!

Nintendo

You can also visit other trainers camps! And a total of four players can be at one trainer’s camp at a time. You can even bring along your Pokemon for a play date when visiting other trainer’s camps.

Curry Rice

Nintendo

Looks like Pokemon Sword and Shield is jumping on the mini cooking game train! Because in the Galar region there are a hundred Curry Rice recipes to collect! So it’s only natural to have a Curry Dex! That’s right, soon you’ll be able to cook up some yummy Curry Rice recipes for your trainer and all your Pokemon!

Nintendo

And to make use of the Nintendo Switch’s motion sensor capabilities, you’ll need to do actions like fanning the flames and stirring the pot!

Nintendo

So go a little crazy and experiment! It all depends on what ingredients you put in the pot to unlock new recipes!

And finally two new Pokemon from the Galar region! Polteageist and Cramorant!

Polteageist is a ghost-type Pokemon that makes dishes and tableware it’s home. And if you haven’t guessed from the name, it’s body is made of tea! And although he is considered a pest in the Galar region, we find him super cute!

Now Cramorant is a flying and water type Pokemon! And we don’t know about you but he looks like a Dodo! LOL. He has a very unusual ability, wherein when he uses ‘Dive’ or ‘Surf’ he may end up with a fish in his mouth. And when attacked in that state he activates a counter-attack called ‘Gulp Missle’. Where in he spits out the fish in his mouth and right at his opponent!
