My youngest gamer in the house has recently gotten into all things Pokemon. I’m not sure how it started, but he quickly became fascinated by all the Pokemon characters and loves all things Pikachu. Being that he had an older Pokemon game, Let go Eevee for the Nintendo Switch from his older sister, he was familiar with the game play for the newly released for Nintendo Switch games: Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield.
The gameplay for both versions starts off similar- you create your character, give them a name, and learn about all the functions of the game. Things get a little different when it comes time for battle and the characters you are able to unlock and collect in each version.
Depending on how fanatical your Pokemon gamer is, gameplay can be very long and playing both versions at the same time can feel redundant. My son and husband decided to try both games out at first, but quickly realized it’s best to stick to one game and collect as many Pokemon as possible before moving onto the next game.
Do you have a favorite Pokemon character? My son is still new to Pokemon and has chosen the classic Pikachu as his favorite! We still have so much to learn about Pokemon, but we are excited to learn this Pokemon journey on the Nintendo Switch!
