This is nice to see. Hopefully the rumored updated Switch hardware is part of a holiday bundle with the game.

Best Buy has $10 in rewards for preorders (on top of the 20% if your GCU hasn't expired).

Nice, I don't see a digital option yet, but perhaps they will add one closer to the release date

Think you will be able to use the Pokémon controller from the Let's Go! games? Or do main line games require more than 2 buttons?

Re: Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield (late 2019; Switch)

I've always played around the edges of this franchise. I've played games like Puzzle Quest, the TCG on GameBoy game, Pokemon Pinball, PokemonGo on mobile. I love the anime, I help my son collect the card game cards.

But I've never played one of the actual core RPG games.

That will change this fall.

Is this a real Pokémon game? I wasted a hundred bucks on that Let's Go Pikachu game last Christmas.
