Pokemon Sword and Shield's single-player experience is filled with neat characters and a new region that's brimming with personality, but running around the Wild Area with other players offers a special kind of fun. Quality of life improvements to the metagame, including the ability to change your Pokemon's nature and rent teams for fights, gives you good reason to stick with the game after you're crowned the new champion of the Galar region. Despite the controversy, Sword and Shield offers a great time.

Pokémon Sword & Shield deliver a new generation of creatures to capture throughout a consistently enjoyable adventure.

Pokémon Sword is a fantastic game, but it’s flawed. I had a great time with it, and it’s an easy recommendation for Switch owners, but it’s far from being my favorite game in the series. Hell, it’s not even my favorite monster-based RPG on the Switch, as I still think Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth is a lot meatier and a lot more entertaining. With that being said, I loved the new quality of life additions, and also appreciate what they tried to do with the Wild Area, even if it rendered the Galar region itself bland and obsolete. It’s a Pokémon game for crying out loud, of course it’s still fun. Go for it, and if you do, please buy the Shield version and trade its exclusives with me. I’m desperate for a cute little Tyranitar!

“It may not be the most imaginative or the most compelling title in the entire franchise, but Pokémon (Sword/Shield) is still an amazing game and one that every Pokémon fan needs to pick up. “

Die Essenz von Pokémon, das Fangen und Kämpfen, ist auch in Pokémon Schwert & Schild immer noch fantastisch: Die Designs und Attacken sind toll, die neue Naturzone mit drehbarer Kamera und den Dyna-Raids macht richtig Spaß. Abstriche gibt es teilweise bei der Technik, der fehlenden Vertonung und den angestaubten Online-Funktionen. Außerdem vermisse ich als Veteranin mehr Anspruch. Dennoch haben mich die liebevoll gestalteten Arenen und Städte mit ihren Burgen und Feenwäldern immer wieder verzaubert, so dass ich bereits nach wenigen Stunden gefangen genommen wurde und körperliche sowie soziale Bedürfnisse immer mehr vernachlässigte. Ja, es gibt da draußen besseren Stoff, aber nur einer gibt mir den ganz speziellen Pokémon-Rausch.
Gameplay (Benelux) (Dec 26, 2019)
De achtste Pokémon-generatie brengt niet de ommezwaai die we van hun eerste consoleavontuur hadden verwacht. De formule vertoont ouderdomskwaaltjes, maar de WIld Area is een schot in de roos.
Nintendo-Online.de (Nov 22, 2019)
Bei „Pokémon Schwert“ handelt es sich um eine konsequente Fortsetzung der Hauptreihe. Neue Spielelemente wie die Naturzone und die Dynamaximierung sowie Detailverbesserungen des Hauptgameplays stehen dabei der diesmal besonders starken Gradlinigkeit des Spiels, einer schwachen Geschichte und einigen fragwürdigen Entscheidungen gegenüber. Am Ende bleibt dadurch trotz der wie gewohnt spaßigen Reise durch die Welt der Pokémon ein etwas bitterer Beigeschmack aufgrund des verschenkten Potentials.
RPG Site (Nov 19, 2019)
I firmly believe that the games would’ve benefited from another year in development. Even if the region itself hadn’t seen many changes, just patching up the presentation a bit, adding a little more content to mess with during the post-game, and fixing the story’s unfortunate pacing could’ve done this game wonders. There was a chance for these games to be some of the best in the series, and it’s just depressing that the final product that we’re left with is so utterly flawed. What was cut from the experience wasn’t worth what sparse improvements that the games received, and what we got feels like it should match the 3DS games’ price-point, and not a $60 Switch game’s. Pokemon deserves better, and I don’t think that’s greedy to hope for.
