  1. This was obvious from the moment they announced the names. Of course Sword, the weapon, was going to be more popular than Shield, the defense. That’s why I got Shield, as I always do the less popular version. It gives me ever so slightly more valuable version exclusives.

    1. It’s not the one with the wolf with the weired looking shield head? Oh my, I’m shocked. I’d totally go with Sword, but unfortunately I much prefer Shield’s exclusives =/

    2. Shield dog looked too ugly. So I went with sword dog. Tbh they both looked terrible to me lol I mean really a dog holding a sword in his mouth is a legendary, come on now lol

      1. I hate Allister but I really like Melony and Zamazenta so I chose shield. I wish Bea and Melony were on both games.
