Japanese magazine CoroCoro‘s upcoming guide book for Pokémon Sword and Shield has revealed the first image of the Wild Area’s map, showing its size and scope for the first time.
The Wild Area is a new area in Pokémon Sword and Shield where Pokémon roam freely over the vast landscape and where trainers can take part in the series’ new Max Raid Battles.
Different Pokémon will spawn depending on where the player is in the Wild Area and what the weather is like. While we knew it was quite big from previous teasers, we didn’t know the exact size of it until now.
At first glance, the Wild Area looks massive. The landscape is made up of two main areas that are connected by a bridge-like plot of land. Both areas seem to have their own theme and will likely change depending on the weather. Other than the map, however, a lot of details around the Wild Area still remain unknown.
The Wild Area map is part of a poster that comes with the CoroCoro guide book and it is unknown at this time if it was released intentionally or by accident.
Pokémon Sword and Shield releases on Nintendo Switch worldwide on Nov. 15.
