Welcome to the Pokémon Sword and Shield section! This subsection will be all about discussing the upcoming game.


All the same forums wide rules and Video Game specific rules still apply to this section. Please also read the recent PSA about etiquette in VG because that also applies to any speculation done here.

Please refer to the new spoilers rule in the general rules thread. We will probably be enforcing stricter spoiler rules pending a datamine of the games and their actual release so as not to ruin the experience for other folks, so stay tuned for more updates.

Three Strike System
In short, it's a system we've put in place for repeat rule breakers. These "strikes" are broken rules - 1 strike equals a warning, 2 equals a 2-day threadban, and so on. For more information, visit the Three Strike System thread.
