Hey everyone. Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.

Links to other sites displaying images should still be ok, but please avoid posting a straight link with a preview of linked content (for example: Twitter). We suggest instead adding a hyperlink to text to avoid these previews from appearing.

We do not plan to remove previously posted content at this time, but this may change as we receive more information. We will keep you updated as we learn more. Thank you for your understanding, and we hope you enjoy this final week of leaks and speculation.

The new trailer today was so amazing. It's cool that they packed so much into it and still without spoiling much. We even got small glimpses of Gym Leaders and a couple of new Pokemon, but nothing too extreme which I really liked.

My biggest takeaway tho, the Apricon Balls! I'm so happy that they're back! I figured they would be, but it's great to see them. I really hope they can be purchased. I liked them being in Sun and Moon, but it was annoying that you could only get like 1 or 2 total. I'd like to be able to buy them, quite early if possible.

I also really liked the quick clips of customization. Again, the clothing in this game looks amazing.

God this final trailer was amazing. I could feel the hype and I like that they're emphasizing the importance and grandeur of the league. I was having doubts due to all of the negativity surrounding the stream these past few day, but this trailer reminded me that the games still look great regardless.

I'm more surprised that they decided to end the prerelease period with 2,5 months of forms and evolutions of past Pokémon (100% Kanto Pokemon, or 88% Kanto if you count Mr. Rime and Runerigus), ignoring new features and new Pokémon. It's like after Dexit they gave up on hardcore fans and decided only to focus on casual fans. (Even through there's that random metagame trailer from last week...)

i mean, not much you can do to appeal to the hardcore fans upset about Dexit at this point (leaks aside) anyways.

It's not a leak so I didn't really know where to put it....has anyone else read this article?


Kind of lost for words to be honest.
Didn’t they already do something similar in HG/SS with the GB Sounds, though?

The GB sounds replaced the HGSS music with the original GSC music. It wasn't tied to a more essential feature like sound volume, which, to my understanding, is what the High-Tech Earbuds control.
Ehh, is this really such a big deal? Just use your volume controls on the TV or Switch until you get the item (is it at least obtainable early on?). I never really had much need to separate music/sounds volume on my switch very often anyway, though I can’t speak for everyone.
