In recent days we had talked about the number of gyms in Pokémon Sword and Shield, but apparently there was a bit of confusion caused by the Japanese translation of the source, and The Pokémon Company decided to clarify the issue.
According to reports in recent days, in fact, it seemed that in Pokémon Sword and Shield were present 18 gyms. In fact, it is true that in the Galar region the number of gyms present is that, but it serves only as a background for the story. In the game, the coaches will be able to collect 8 crests and challenge 8 gym leaders, which will be different depending on the chosen version of Pokémon, to then have the opportunity to participate in the Champion Cup.
In practice in Pokémon Sword, there will be eight gyms and eight heads to challenge, and in Pokémon Shield, there will be as many, but obviously they will not be the same.
An important correction in short, compared to what had originally emerged. What do you think? What do you expect from the new Pokémon adventure on Nintendo Switch?
