Get ready to embark on a whole new Pokémon RPG adventure with the new Pokémon Shield. With this Nintendo Switch Download code, you'll set out on a quest to collect hundreds of pocket-sized monsters, train them and battle your way to the top against Gym Leaders and fellow players.
A NEW REGION
Discover the beautiful surroundings of Galar, an expansive region with diverse environments from a peaceful countryside location and contemporary cities to a thick forest and snow-covered mountains.
Build up your party of experienced Pokémon and visit the eight Gyms scattered across Galar in your quest to become Pokémon Champion.
YOUR BUDDY FROM THE START
With a new Pokémon adventure comes a new batch of starter Pokémon to choose from:
- Grookey - A Grass-type Chimp Pokémon who is mischievous and full of boundless curiosity.
- Scorbunny - A Fire-type Rabbit Pokémon bursting with energy and always running around.
- Sobble - A Water-type Water Lizard Pokémon that prefers stealth, shooting out attacks as it hides itself in water.
TAKE IT TO THE DYNAMAX
Experience Dynamax, the new phenomenon that is unique to specific locations in the Galar region. Pokémon found in Dynamax affected areas can take on gigantic appearances during battles, an integral part of Pokémon battles in the region.
Watch as these Pokémon become tremendously strong and receive a boost to their power!
INTO THE WILD
Head into the Wild Area, a vast expanse of land in the Galar region featuring untamed wilderness. This intriguing nature locale connects several different towns and cities, and you'll find a greater variety of Pokémon living in the Wild Area than anywhere else in the Galar region.
Keep an eye out for weather changes as this will affect which Pokémon appear.
JOIN THE BATTLE
Join up to three other Trainers in online or via local wireless and take on a wild Dynamax Pokémon in Max Raid Battles, a new battle format that takes place in the Wild Area. Trainers will then get a chance to catch the wild Dynamax Pokémon if they manage to defeat it – but it won’t go down easily.
Find a select number of Pokémon species that can enter the Gigantamax form and become much bigger. Just like normal Dynamaxing, Gigantamaxing boosts the size and power of the Pokémon for a limited time.
Dynamax Pokémon in Max Raid battles will stay in form throughout the battle, while Trainers' Pokémon will only stay in Dynamax form for three turns. Plus, Pokémon caught in Max Raid Battles might also have Hidden Abilities, which are different from their usual Abilities!
The hunt is on to find the two new Legendary Pokémon Zacian and Zamazenta, both of which are shrouded in mystery and are unknown even to those who live in the Galar region... until now!
PLACES TO GO, PEOPLE AND POKÉMON TO SEE
As a resident of the Galar region, you'll embark on an adventure to become the Champion and meet many people and Pokémon along the way. Many different species of Pokémon call the Galar region their home.
Much is unknown about the biology of these Pokémon, so researchers are working diligently to discover more information. Help friendly locals with tasks, and be ready to take on sudden Pokémon against trainers across the region - as well as the menacing Team Yell.
