In a recent hands-on session for Pokemon Sword/Shield, Eurogamer was able to speak with director Shigeru Ohmori and producer Junichi Masuda. Between the two, they discussed pressure making Pokemon titles, the negative feedback they’ve recently received, and the possibility of more Let’s Go games. It’s also now confirmed that there’s no direct connectivity with Pokemon GO.

We’ve rounded up these particular responses below. For the full interview, head on over to Eurogamer.

So far, these two variations have been found:

  • Beginner Box: 1x Premium Raid Pass, 1x Super Incubator, 30x Poke Balls, 1x Lucky Egg
  • New Trainer Box: 4x Premium Raid Pass, 4x Super Incubator, 30x Poke Balls, 3x Lucky Egg
