Some new Pokemon Sword and Shield news will drop tomorrow. The Pokemon Company has announced that they will be releasing a new video containing information about Pokemon Sword and Shield on October 16th at 9 AM ET.

So far, the Pokemon Company has mostly kept news about Pokemon Sword and Shield coming at a slow drip, with less than 30 new Pokemon species revealed, and only a few teases about what players can expect in their next Pokemon journey. While we know the game will involve the Dynamax mechanic, we don't know the full extent of these abilities or how many species can Gigantamax, a variant of Dynamaxing that changes a Pokemon's appearance as well as their size.
The Pokemon Company has also changed up their approach to marketing these games, emphasizing slow reveals and teases over straight info drops. The marketing tactics have helped turned opinion of the games around, with excitement building despite controversy over graphics quality and the news that not every Pokemon will be available in the game. It also helps that the revealed Pokemon have all connected with fans, with the Internet going nuts over Galarian Ponyta or Wooloo.
