Pokemon Sword & Shield 24-hour livestream planned before launch

1

Ahead of the game’s launch, a special Pokemon Sword and Shield 24-hour livestream will provide players “surprising” information about the game’s world.

Scheduled to begin at 11.00 pm AEST on 4 October, the livestream event will run a full 24-hours, finishing at 11.00 pm AEST on 5 October (and don’t forget that Daylight Savings Time ticks over a couple hours later for most Aussies).

“My name’s Sonia, and I’m a Pokémon researcher. Here in Galar, I’m always helping out with research for my gran—Professor Magnolia, that is,” a message on the Pokemon Sword and Shield website, which hosts the livestream, reads.

“I’m sending this message because I could really use your help with some research I’m doing. Next week, a camera will be set up in a strange forest here in Galar known as Glimwood Tangle, and the camera will begin broadcasting live footage. The broadcast will last for 24 hours! If you could take a gander when you have time, that’d be just great. Thanks in advance!”

We’ll let you know if any interesting news comes from the livestream, which can also be viewed directly via Twitch or YouTube.

Pokemon Sword and Shield heads to Nintendo Switch on 15 November. We previewed it at E3 2019.
