Champion Leon has a younger brother named Hop, who will serve as your rival throughout Pokemon Sword and Shield.

Game Freak has also made more of en effort to bring life to the towns and cities of Pokemon Sword and Shield. In the wild trainers can also team up for co-op raid battles against Dynamax Pokemon, a feature that feels very inspired by Pokemon Go.

We got a bunch of details on the wider franchise from the Pokemon Company's 2019 press conference last week - including the announcement of Pokemon Sleep - but Wednesday's stream shifted the focus back to the core game series. This new trailer revealed Pokemon's interpretation of Raid bosses which see groups of friends battle one big Pokemon.

Swedish court rejects request to detain Assange in absence over rape allegation
The United States has already requested Assange's extradition on conspiracy charges . "No date has been set yet", Persson said. Swedish prosecutors reopened their investigation in May a month after Assange was arrested and removed from the embassy.

For me though the cooler additions are the new "Wild Area" zones. The Pokemon that appear will be dependent on the time of day, and the weather conditions too, so hopefully we'll see the full spectrum of rain, sunshine and more that we have to endure here in the UK. Once you find the Dynamax Band in Sword and Shield (something that's bound to happen early on), you'll be able to transform one of your Pokemon into a towering monster, Rita Repulsa style, in each battle.

We were also introduced to the two version legendaries for Sword and Shield: Zacian and Zamazenta. And you'll be aided by Professor Magnolia and her granddaughter Sonia. We now know the game's release date, and it's right in the November sweet spot, squished into a release window with long-awaited Kojima wtfery Death Stranding and the first single-player Star Wars release in ages.
