The full map of Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield's Wild Area has been revealed. News of the full map comes way of Japanese magazine CoroCoro's guide book for the title. On the cover of this book is the Wild Area map for the game. For those that don't know: the Wild Area is a new portion of the greater Galar region that connects several towns in the region. And unlike other areas in the game, players are open to explore it freely in any direction. And it's in these areas that different Pokemon roam depending on the weather -- which is dynamic -- and the time of day.
As you would expect, the Wild Area is home too many different biomes, and it appears that Dynamax and Gigantimax raids will take place within the region, however, this hasn't been confirmed as of right now. Anyway, as you can see via the map below, there's also quite a few bodies of water in the region. That said, while it may not look that big, it's actually a pretty decent chunk of the game's entire map.
