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!
