If Pokémon Sword and Shield is your first licensed game, you've come to the right place. In this tutorial, we'll explain how this game works: which Pokémon "Starter" will be most powerful, what is the evolution, how to capture Pokémon and what type.
What is Pokémon?
Pokémon is an RPG-type game developed by Satoshi Tajiri and released in 1996. The purpose of this game will be to find new Pokémon (creatures of the world). So you will need to capture Pokémon and have them fight to gain experience. You will be traveling from town to town where you will have winners to fight. Once all the badges are collected, you can compete against the "League Pokémon", the most powerful trainers in the world.
Pokemon have types?
Pokemon fall into various groups of objects called species. Each species has weaknesses and resistance to other species. Here is a table to view the results of each type in relation to the other:
Your team can have up to six pokemon. It is highly advisable to form a balanced team, which strives to overcome each other's weaknesses. You will be able to beat anyone, because your wide selection will allow you to exploit the weaknesses of your opponents. Lines represent defense types and columns for attack types.
What is evolution?
But that is not all. Your pokemon should also be powerful. In this case, they have to step up, which will lead to a general increase in their symptoms (attack, defense, scoring, etc.). It is therefore important that you never run away from a fight, and deal with as many coaches as you can. Being creative also earns you money, which is important if you want to shop. When your Pokémon are strong enough, they can end up being super powerful.
Each Pokémon game has its own new generation and its "Starter" Pokémon. This means that you will get new creatures per game and you will need to select the first Pokémon that will suit you at the beginning of the game. You are free to keep it to your team or to replace it. Depending on your choice, the game can be difficult or not easy. In Pokémon Sword and Shield, you'll first need to collect the Badge of Plants. The kind of fire Pokémon will be most powerful against opponents you will encounter early in the game. If you choose Flambi no, you will have a chance. With Ouistempo you will not receive any punishment. On the other hand, Larméléon will no longer be useful to you in this first forum. However, keep in mind that you can capture new Pokémon and build a good team before facing Percy, the first Arena Champion.
You will only be able to capture wild Pokémon that will be on the streets, plains and lands of Pokémon Sword and Shield, you will not be able to catch Pokémon by train. However, you will be able to trade to complete your Pokédex (Game Encyclopedia) and thus obtain both Pokémon only in the Sword and Shield version. To capture Pokémon, you'll need to first start fighting the Pokémon in question. Then use one or more attacks to lower your health barrier. You can also change it by sleeping it or disabling it for example to reduce its resistance further. Then go to your inventory and select Poké Ball to capture the Pokémon in question.
