Pokemon Sword and Shield introduces the latest internet craze: Assistant Sonia

Pokemon Sword and Shield introduces the latest internet craze: Assistant Sonia

Hopefully a future Pokemon game will be one big Wild Area, instead of confining it to certain locations.

For me though the cooler additions are the new "Wild Area" zones. Should you be interested, Pokemon Sword and Shield both drop on November 15th. Gym Leaders will use the transformation on their strongest Pokemon, adding a challenging new hurdle to defeating them in battle.

We already know that Sword and Shield will take place in the Galar region, that Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble are the three starters for Generation 8, and that this will be the best-looking Pokemon game ever made. These stretches of wilderness between the cities allow for more open exploration and it looks like Pokemon themselves are visible on the overworld.

It's Sonia, granddaughter and assistant to Professor Magnolia, the latest in the line of tree-surnamed Pokemon professors.




The game will feature multiplayer Max Raid Battles, which will require a team of four players to take down giant Pokemon that appear in the world - like Gyarados, which was shown in the presentation. The new Pokemon include the flowering Pokemon Gossifleur, which evolves into Eldegoss; Wooloo the sheep Pokemon; Corviknight, which resembles a raven and is used to taxi people from town to town within the Galar region; and finally, Drednaw, a massive Pokemon with a hard shell and strong bite.

Once you find the Dynamax Band in Sword and Shield (something that's bound to happen early on), you'll be able to transform one of your Pokemon into a towering monster, Rita Repulsa style, in each battle. The two Pokemon will figure into the game's story.

Do you think the Assistant Sonia craze is substantiated or will Misty always be the red-haired Pokemon gal for you?
