The new gameplay video, which has been shared by Serebii, showcases the game’s very first town, highlighting the available facilities and the extremely relaxed atmosphere, which is expected, considering it’s been the same in every first town that we have seen in the series.

Speaking about the Pokemon Sword And Shield file size for the digital version, it’s been confirmed that the two games will be 10.3 GB big, which is not that big. It is bigger, however, than the latest Pokemon games released, on Nintendo Switch, as the Let’s Go games are around 4.55 GB big.

Earlier this month, a new statement has been released regarding the Pokemon Sword And Shield Gym Leaders.

Over the course of the main story, Trainers will challenge eight Gyms, which are all in the Major League. Which Gyms appear in the Major League and Minor League will differ between Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. For example, depending on the version of the game, Trainers will be able to challenge different Gym Leaders, such as Bea or Allister.

Pokemon Sword and Shield launch on November 15th worldwide on Nintendo Switch.
