NEED TO KNOW
Get ready to make a splash in an all-new core Pokémon adventure. We took a dip in a fight against Nessa. She’s a Water-type gym boss. Before the brawl, we had to swim through some super-soaked challenges. Tackle a few lake-loving lackeys. Then switch our way past watery pillars. The big battle went bigger with the neat new Dynamax feature. This turns Poké pals big and small into towering fighters! Make sure you have the space to pop it. Then enjoy livin’ that larger-than-life Pokémon dream. And that’s not close to all the new. Limp to victory with devilish Impadimp. Or fall in love with Yamper, the corgi with a heart on its butt. They’re all-new additions for your Pokédex. You’ll discover them and stacks more in the awesome open-world Wild Area. It’s got a rad Breath of the Wild feel to it. You can fish out here. Or take a floating bike for a splashing spin across the water.
