Pokemon Sword and Shield Review

Worst Pokemon game ever?

No entry in the Pokemon series has caught heat quite like Pokemon Sword and Shield. When word got out that this title would buck the trend of supporting every Pokemon, the news disappointed many and sent a vocal minority into a tizzy. The drama hit a fever pitch around the launch of the game, as the outcry over everything cut from the game sat diametrically opposed to the generally positive reviews from the press. With so much conflicting information going around, who could you trust?

Ultimately, I decided to trust in myself by going through with my purchase of Pokemon Sword. Good or bad, at least I would know for sure where I stood on the discussion. I hope you get the chance to play the game and come to your own conclusions as well.

My Approach to Team-Building in Pokemon Games

In our ongoing quest to be the very best, there are a number of ways one can approach the task of building a team of Pokemon worthy of earning all eight gym badges. Some love to hunt for Shiny Pokemon. Others add an extra layer of complexity by partaking in a Nuzlocke challenge. I…mostly do just enough to get through the story.

Here’s my approach to building a Pokemon team!

Pokemon Sword and Shield – Rock Gym and a Tour of the Roman Baths!

Before we take on Gordie’s Rock Gym, I’m overcome with emotion as a landmark that I visited in England earlier this year makes a surprise appearance in Pokemon Sword and Shield! I take a moment to show some pictures from the Roman Baths, which is what the in-game landmark is based on. We also talk about Black Friday deals, Google Stadia, and a quick show-and-tell featuring Nintendo games made for non-Nintendo consoles!

Pokemon Sword and Shield Live Stream – Grass Gym, the Wild Area, and Route 5

Crikey! In Pokemon Sword and Shield, is Milo – the leader of the Grass gym – an Australian? Whether he is or isn’t, I gave him my best Aussie accent, which is horrible. My apologies. Afterwards, I struggle through the Wild Area, fail to figure out how to raid with friends, and stop Team Yell from executing their really stupid plan!

As of writing, my character “Jettt” is standing on the steps of the first gym. With a full review not coming anytime soon, I thought I’d share a few early notes about my experiences thus far.
