Begin your adventure as a Pokmon Trainer by choosing one of three new partner Pokmon: Grookey, Scorbunny, or Sobble. Then embark on a journey in the new Galar region, where youll challenge the troublemakers of Team Yell, while unraveling the mystery behind the Legendary Pokmon Zacian and Zamazenta! Explore the Wild Area, a vast expanse of land where the player can freely control the camera. Team up with three other players locally or online in the new multiplayer co-op Max Raid Battles* in which players will face off against gigantic and super-strong Pokmon known as Dynamax Pokmon.
Certain Pokmon can even Gigantamax to gain a new look and a powerful set of G-Max moves. But theres more to being a champion than honing your battle skills: you can pick your own clothes and get a new hairdo while visiting the stores in town, so you can be the Trainer you want to be. Throughout your journey, youll encounter newly discovered Pokmon as well as familiar ones that will look a little different in their new Galarian forms! And for another way to level up your Pokmon, assign them Pok Jobs to complete. You can even play with your Pokmon in Pokmon Camp, just for fun!
