Pokémon Sword and Shield is taking game-play right out of ORAS into Galar!
Players will be able to SOAR into the Sky using a Ride Pokémon ~ unlike Sun and Moon/USUM.
This isn't your Alola Charizard with a Ride Saddle.
It's a selected Pokémon that will fly you up!
THE REGION OF THE GALAR REGION AND ITS SKIES
First HINTED by its sea of clouds above Galar . . . SOARING will be coming back!
QUOTE TO RECALL: Game Freak is talking about Gen 8 as being "BotW-Tier".
THE SKIES WILL BE A PART OF THE REGION TO EXPLORE.
New Battle Mechanic similar to Sky Battles.
LEGIT LEAK with Branch-Evolutions (known as Mind-Blowing Bronze to HeartGold/SoulSilver) not only mentions Sky Battles but Marine Battles!
> New battle mechanic based on distance.
> Sky battles return. Marine battles for Pokémon that can breathe under water. Diving returns but under water battles/encounters require marine Pokémon.
Innovations to Sky Battles are in Sword and Shield!
What could be better than the Return of Sky Battles? An improved Sky Battle system adding more types into the mix and weather effects to be hyped for!
