Pokémon™ Sword and Pokémon™ Shield Double Pack

Nintendo Switch
Everyone
$119.99

A new generation of Pokémon is coming to the Nintendo Switch™ system.

If you purchase the Pokémon™ Sword and Pokémon™ Shield Double Pack bundle, then you can receive two codes that will reward you with special items known as Dynamax Crystals! 

As a special bonus for purchasing the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Double Pack, you’ll receive two codes (one per game) that will each reward you a special item known as a Dynamax Crystal*.

By using the Dynamax Crystals received via these codes, you’ll be able to face Dynamax Larvitar and Dynamax Jangmo-o in special Max Raid Battles**. These Pokémon normally can’t be encountered until later in the game!

Max Raid Battles are battles in which you can recruit up to three players* via local communication or the internet to face down powerful Dynamax Pokémon!

Every participant will get a chance to catch the Pokémon if you triumph in the battle! Additionally, with Dynamax Crystals, you’ll be able to attempt these Max Raid Battles as many times as it takes to win or until midnight on the day that the Dynamax Crystal was used, whichever comes first.*

A new generation of Pokémon is coming to the Nintendo Switch™ system. Begin your adventure as a Pokémon Trainer by choosing one of three new partner Pokémon: Grookey, Scorbunny, or Sobble. Then embark on a journey in the new Galar region, where you’ll challenge the troublemakers of Team Yell, while unraveling the mystery behind the Legendary Pokémon Zacian and Zamazenta! Explore the Wild Area, a vast expanse of land where the player can freely control the camera. Team up with three other players locally or online in the new multiplayer co-op Max Raid Battles* in which players will face off against gigantic and super-strong Pokémon known as Dynamax Pokémon.

Certain Pokémon can even Gigantamax to gain a new look and a powerful set of G-Max moves. But there’s more to being a champion than honing your battle skills: you can pick your own clothes and get a new hairdo while visiting the stores in town, so you can be the trainer you want to be. Throughout your journey, you’ll encounter newly discovered Pokémon as well as familiar ones that will look a little different in their new Galarian forms! For another way to level up your Pokémon, assign them Poké Jobs to complete, and for fun, you can even play with your Pokémon in Pokémon Camp!  

  • Catch, battle, and trade Pokémon on a new adventure in the Galar region
  • Choose from three new partner Pokémon and encounter never-before-seen Pokémon
  • Unravel the mystery behind the Legendary Pokémon Zacian and Zamazenta!
  • Players can control the camera in the vast Wild Area
  • Team up with other Trainers to participate in Max Raid Battles**!
  • Battle wild Dynamax Pokémon in Max Raid Battles** and try catching them!
