Pokémon Sword and Shield 24-hour live stream coming on October 4

Pokémon Sword and Shield 24-hour live stream coming on October 4

The Pokemon Company will broadcast the stream on its official Twitch and YouTube channels at 9 a.m. EDT on Friday, October 4, which will conclude at 9 a.m. on the following day.

The livestream won't be hosted on the official Pokemon Sword and Shield site, but on Twitch. Some new Pokemon, perhaps?

Pokemon Sword and Shield will be getting a 24-hour stream to up the excitement in the run-up to the game's launch. It's too early to tell if this would also lead to new, regional evolutions like Obstagoon and Sirfetch'd, but with the continued growth of the Pokédex there are bound to be other surprises to look forward to.

The live stream will feature a camera to capture Pokemon Observation in the forest area called Glimwood Tangle. "Here in Galar, I'm always helping out with research for my gran - Professor Magnolia, that is!"

"Next week, a camera will be set up in a odd forest here in Galar known as Glimwood Tangle, and the camera will begin broadcasting live footage".

Looks like we'll get a chance to see some new Galar region Pokemon ahead of Pokemon Sword and Shield's debut on November 15.

"The broadcast will last for 24 hours!"

One of the headline new features is the aforementioned Dynamaxing, which transforms Pocket Monsters into huge beasts with more powerful special moves.
