At this point, Sword. I prefer Alistair or whoever the ghost leader is, but I think zamazenta is real ugly.

Allister is in Pokémon Shield, so I guess you'll have to deal with Bea instead.

Yeah, I know haha that's what I'm saying basically
I like him but he's not enough for me to settle for uglyzenta

Definitely also getting Sword for p much the same reason. I also happen to prefer Bea anyways.

Everything so far says "Shield" to me.

Why does there always have to be a version that only a minority of people like and a version that most people think is better?

It also seem like the least popular is also always the "second" game.

It seems like half the time I prefer the first game and half I prefer the other. It's sometimes harder to choose than others.

I agree on waiting on version exclusives. Especially since we know we'll be having more exclusive gym leaders. Plus we haven't even see any version exclusive new Pokemon yet.

Currently I’m leaning towards Sword because I prefer the version exclusive Pokémon, Jangmo-o (a Pokémon I’ve always wanted to use) and Deino, and like the logo more than I like Shield’s, but that may change as more information about version exclusives comes out.

Hello, I'm new here. So, I'm buying Shield, because I find Zamazenta's design better than Zacian one. Crossing my fingers for a Steel/Fire type for Zamazenta.

Way too early to tell, so far doesn't seem to be much exclusive other than Bea vs Allister.
Not sure why the hype around Allister, also if his signature pokemon is Mimikyu that's too similar to Acerola who we just had.
Bea seems to have Hitmontop, which while not new, hasn't been a signature Pokemon before (Chuck really had a missed opportunity there)

Also I think I prefer Zacian to Zamazenta, but the sword in its mouth does look goofy.
So I guess I'm leaning towards Sword slightly, but it's very minimal reasoning so far a good version exclusive, could easily tip me into the Shield column

There's a good chance they are not their aces.

I have always been fond of picking the blue-toned version, so Sword is the one I'll get. Even f there are some version exclusives, I can still get them by trading. Also, Zacian looks cooler than Zamazenta.
