The Pokémon Company’s 24-hour livestream for Sword and Shield has started. Fans will have to wait to see exactly what Sonia’s Galar Research Update is in Sword and Shield.

The stream is focused on the Glimwood Tanger Forest, a new area in the Galar region. But we still have no idea what the livestream will actually show off.


We expect the stream to be on a constant loop for 24 hours, similar to the classic Yule Log streams you see around the holiday season. It’ll probably only show off something new once in a while.

For instance, we could get a look at some never-before-seen Pokémon or the third legendary Pokémon, Eternatus, might make an appearance in the darkness of the woods either as a silhouette or a looming shadow.

Regardless of what the stream shows off, fans can expect plenty of Pokémon theories and information to be discussed over the next 24 hours.

Pokémon Sword and Shield comes to the Nintendo Switch on Nov. 15.
