The Official Pokémon YouTube channel has now released a bramd new trailer for the 8th generation Pokemon games, Pokemon Sword and Shield. This new video teases a few battle features, including some brand new abilities, held items, and of course, the new Dynamax Battle where one Pokemon enlarges to unlock new abilities.

Meanwhile, here is the Japanese version:

Both videos also talk about the Battle Stadium feature, which lets players battle other players from all over the world. However, players must have a paid Nintendo Online membership to be able to use this feature.

The games will also introduce a new feature called “Max Raid Battles” which can allow up to four people to join in in a Pokemon battle. It works similarly to Pokemon GO’s raid battles basically. Aside from that, they’re also introducing “Wild Areas,” which are open areas between cities for  trainers to explore, and there will be wild Pokemon moving about. Pokemon Sword and Shield  will be released for the Nintendo Switch globally on November 15.
