The next core titles in the Pokémon franchise, Sword and Shield, will be released on November 15th, 2019. Developer Game Freak confirmed the news in a 15-minute Direct that also included a host of gameplay and story tidbits. One of these, Dynamax, will boost your monster's size and attack power for three turns in battle. In addition, it will be possible to fight Dynamax-sized Pokémon in the wild through a new, co-operative Max Raid Battle system. Details are scarce at the moment, but the Direct showed four trainers meeting near a portal and fighting a giant Pokémon in what appeared to be another dimension. So yeah, basically Pokémon Kaijū.
