The Galarian Star tournament will also be taking place in the city of Wyndon where players will face off against characters previously met in the game, as well as being able to team up with them as well to tackle the tournament as a pair.

In our review for Pokemon Sword & Shield, Jason wrote:

Pokémon Sword and Shield is a positive step in a new direction, but one that is held back by a fear of the Unown. It’s still an incredibly fun new adventure, and the Pokémon selection and variety is the best it’s ever been. That said, it would be incredible to see the Wild Area become the new norm for the series, but as it stands, many of the new features feel more like spraying your sofa with Febreeze when really you need to buy a new sofa. Sure, it smells and feels new, but it’s not, and you should really just commit to moving on from what was normal, and forge a new path into a new sofa. Look, just go with it.
