Q: Is it 2 player 

Hihih17 1 year ago
Best Answer :

Not exactly? The game is largely single player, but there are events like battles/trades/raids that can be completed as a multiplayer setting as long as there are two consoles. The switch changes up this game a little because now you can have multiple save files by using different accounts on a single switch. A feature previously unavailable in past Pokémon games. So while two people couldn’t play at once on the same device, two people can play the same game by taking turns by utilizing multiple switch accounts.

Q: Is Pokemon online only or is there offline gameplay

Ratchet the hedgehog 4 months ago
Best Answer :

There is both, if you don't have internet connection then you can play the whole game offline and the expansion. But online makes some of the game easier and more enjoyable

Q: If I wanted a pre owned of pokemon will I have someone elses save file in the game?

Truongca 11 months ago
Best Answer :

Hey there! Since this is a Switch-based game that saves its data onto the Switch itself rather than the physical game chip itself, you will not get anyone else’s save file if you buy a pre-owned copy. That only happens with the handheld games! Hope this helps!

Q: does it connect to Pokemon go?

Blackbird117 11 months ago
Best Answer :

The game you are looking for is Lets Go Pikachu and Lets Go Eevee. That game connects to Pokemon GO. Pokemon Sword and Shield does not connect straight to Pokemon GO, but does connect to Pokemon HOME.

Q: Is this game like the nintendo 3ds omega ruby

Dylan2776 1 year ago
Best Answer :

Yes, pretty much, as it’s another installment to the Pokémon series. There are a good amount of differences, though, since it is a newer game than Omega Ruby.

I hate that you can’t fight in the grass. You can only capture Pokémon in the grass. How am I supposed to level up fast?

Bought it as a birthday gift for my younger sibling. It's been played almost everyday since and I've been turned into human Pokedex since neither of us have actually played a full Pokemon game since Gen 4.

This is the best Pokémon game since I last played on the game boy color. I’m 30 and just bought a switch light for something relaxing to do after the kids go to bed. I did not expect to have so much fun with a Pokémon game. It really brings me back. I wish the game wouldn’t end lol
