There has been huge talks about the new Pokémon Sword and Shield. Whether about the fact that not all Pokémon will be in the two upcoming games or that Mega Pokémon and Z-moves will not be returning. Fans aren’t always happy when it they hear what Gamefreak is doing. Yet the new mechanics like Dynamaxing should make for a special moment in combat that make all available Pokémon feel special.
Pokemon Sword/Shield director Shigeru Ohmori had a bit to say about Dynamaxing in an interview with Kotaku. In his view, the feature will allow for “every Pokemon to shine in battle.”
“We’re very cognizant of not betraying the expectations of long term fans. We view it as a way to get every Pokémon to shine in battle. Even if they weren’t as viable in the past, this is their time to shine, and we’re balancing the battle system around that.
When you Dynamax your moves become Max Moves, making them different and alot stronger. They’re powerful, and some are even able to trigger additional effects such as Max Strike lowering the Speed stat of an opponent it hits.
