Gamespot and Eurogamer recently tried out a Pokemon Sword/Shield demo for early impressions. Some interesting tidbits of information came out of both outlets, which might please some long time Pokemon fans. Sword/Shield will allow you to encounter vastly over-leveled Pokemon in the wild. A similar feature is found in Xenoblade games, where the player may encounter enemies 10x the level of the current player. In addition, players may finally skip the catching tutorial. This is the first time since Pokemon Crystal in 2000 where players can skip that tutorial.

Lastly, Pokemon Sword/Shield releases on November 15th for Switch. Stay tuned at Final Weapon for the latest Nintendo Switch news!
