Pokémon Sword and Shield 24-hour Livestream Starts Friday

Posted by | September 30, 2019 | News, Switch, Video | No Comments

The Pokémon Company and Nintendo are hosting a unique promotional video event later this week. Starting Friday, October 4, at 6am Pacific/9am Eastern, a 24-hour livestream will “broadcast footage” from the Galar region from Pokémon Sword and Shield.

The Pokémon Company is being coy with details on how exactly this livestream will work. A “camera” will be set up specifically within Glimwood Tangle, a forest located within the Galar Region. Viewers should get a glimpse into the native Pokémon of the area. The footage will not feature actual gameplay, however.

Here is the official message from Sonia, a Pokémon researcher from Pokémon Sword and Shield:

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!

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!

The stream will be broadcasted via YouTube, Twitch, and the official Pokémon website. Pokémon Sword and Shield are coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch on November 15.
