What Pokemon Sword and Shield has currently

The mechanics seem to stick with the other main series games. Despite the widely accepted capture system in Pokemon Let’s Go, Pokemon Sword and Shield are using the classic system where you need to weaken then catch wild Pokemon. Wild Pokemon also do not seem to roam the wild as in Let’s Go. Pokemon Gyms makes a return as well instead of Pokemon Sun and Moon’s Trials.

Main Characters

The Main Protagonist’s in Pokemon games always catch some initial flak, but these ones aren’t too bad.
