Pokemon Sword & Shield: Pre-Loads Available Weeks Before Official Release

We are only weeks away from the release of the new Pokemon Sword and Shield game and if you want to be the first to jump right into the game as soon as it is released, you can start pre-loading the game now so that you won’t have to do it on that day.

If you purchase the digital version fo the game, you will be able to download the game now. The game is 9.5 GB in size but you will need 19GB if you want to load both versions of the game. The upcoming game is also eligible for the Switch Voucher program so if you still have some vouchers, you can use one to download the game as well.

Those that buy the digital version of the game will also get 12 free Quick Balls, these are Pokeballs with a higher chance of catching a Pokemon but only if you use it right after the encounter begins.

There is also a long list of other freebies depending on what version you got and whether you own other Pokemon games or not.
