Pokemon Sword & Shield Have Version-Exclusive Gyms

Pokemon Sword and Shield is set to be the next big Pokemon games (despite the controversy over not being able to complete the Pokedex) on the Nintendo Switch. The games will be compatible with the upcoming Pokemon Home service, allowing you to bring over some of your old monsters. Allister uses Ghost-type Pokemon while Bea uses Fighting-types. And these special Gigantamaxed Pokemon also obtain a special ability not available to Dynamaxed Pokemon: something called a G-Max Move. It is important to note that not all members of a species of Pokemon can Gigantamax. When Alcremie Gigantamaxes, its cream hardens and the "berry decorations" on its body become like diamonds. Each G-Max Move is particular to a specific species of Gigantamax Pokémon, and regular Dynamax Pokémon are not able to use G-Max Moves. But more importantly, Alcreamie has the new ability to Gigantamax, which is shared by (so far) only two other Pokemon; Drednaw and Corviknight.

What Are G-Max Moves?

Additionally, if you grab the downloadable versions of both games by January 15, 2020, you'll get 12 Quick Balls.

In an interview with GameCentral, Sword and Shield director Shigeru Ohmori reveals that this is by choice, as the team likes to implement new features in Pokemon games more gradually.
