Robot from the Future
It's finally that time again! We are teetering on the edge of Pokémon Sword and Shield being released to the world on November 15th. As usual, we believe there may be a copy in the wild before that happens! If this does indeed happen, this thread will contain links to major spoilers which make up the games. This may include Pokémon Data, Route Data, Gym Leader levels, Story progression and other miscellaneous information. Marty has created another thread for Battle Mechanics found here: https://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/sword-shield-pre-release-battle-mechanic-questions.3655528/
In concert with this thread, the original thread, FOUND HERE, will continue until launch as the "official" place to discuss NINTENDO RELEASED INFORMATION. Once the games have been released, we will make some threads for Team Building/"What did you use?" (there will also be a thread for this pre-release based on any data mined information), discussion of the story and any other relevant threads (Ingame Tier Thread, general discussion thread, TM Location thread etc). Please contact Codraroll or DHR-107 if you have any information which may help us get started on these threads (Chances are we will very much be in the loop anyway).
