The Metro was one publication which recently got the opportunity to go hands-on with the forthcoming Pokemon Sword & Shield for the Nintendo Switch platform. Speaking to a representative from The Pokemon Company at the event the site asked about how large the game’s Wild Area is. They were told that it is roughly the size of two regions from the prestigious The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
The Wild Area is a fairly large open world location, which The Pokémon Company rep on hand estimated was about the size of two regions from Zelda: Breath Of The Wild. Here you do have control of the camera and can see pokémon roaming about on their own, as bees flit around flowers, fish pokémon jump in the lakes, and larger creatures such as Onix – which you’re warned not to get close to because they’re too high level – wander about freely.
