'Pokémon Sword and Shield' Glimwood Tangle Stream: Start Time, How to Watch Online & More

The Pokémon Company is trying a new way to release information on the upcoming Sword and Shield games, and this time the company will have a 24-hour livestream to let fans discover an unexplored area of the Galar region, the Glimwood Tangle.

According to the official Pokémon Company announcement, trainers will be able to see a fixed camera on the Glimwood Tangle as Pokémon Researcher Sonia narrates the stream.

Here's a message from Sonia about the upcoming research adventure.

"My name's Sonia, and I'm a Pokémon researcher. Here in Galar, I'm always helping out with research for my gran—Professor Magnolia, that is! I'm sending this message because I could really use your help with some research I'm doing. Next week, a camera will be set up in a strange forest here in Galar known as Glimwood Tangle, and the camera will begin broadcasting live footage. The broadcast will last for 24 hours! If you could take a gander when you have time, that'd be just great. Thanks in advance!"

POKEMON SWORD AND SHIELD GLIMWOOD TANGLE PREDICTIONS

With such a long stream there's bound to be new Pokémon revealed, but what types can we expect?

The Glimwood Tangle seems to be a place where Grass, Bug and Fairy-type Pokémon live. Currently, the only Pokémon with those typings are Gossifleur, Eldegoss and Alcremie. Impidimp, the first Dark and Fairy-type Pokémon found in the Sword and Shield demo at E3, has yet to be "officially" revealed. We may finally get more information on this fan-favorite 'mon including its abilities and possible new attacks.

Pokémon Sword and Shield releases November 15 for Nintendo Switch.
