GameInformer’s cover stories are always an event, usually focusing on the biggest games of the year. November’s issue is no exception, as the magazine and website prepare for an avalanche of Pokémon Sword & Shield news.

We’ve already seen a few key announcements and confirmations – auto-saving is confirmed, cut Pokémon will return in future games and “different regions”, HMs won’t be returning, EXP will be shared automatically without need for an item, and finally mysterious changes are on the way to make individual Pokémon more competitively viable.
The digital version of the November issue of GameInformer launches today, and the Pokémon Sword & Shield games are set to release on November 15th.
