You could be in for a chance of winning a whole bundle of goodies, including a new Nintendo Switch, as part of The Pokémon Company's Pokémon Sword & Shield Bus Tour.
Decorated with the classic red, white, and black design of a Poké Ball, the bus has been travelling around the United Kingdom to promote Sword & Shield's second DLC, The Crown Tundra. Set in the titular snowy region of Galar, an explorer named Peony will assign the player as the leader of his team, and they'll be trekking to every corner of this mountainous and mysterious area. Additionally, Pokémon Dens, which have only been a set piece for the Max Raids in the main game, will be fully traversable as a whole new environment in the story of The Crown Tundra.
Who knows what the team will discover in these caves, when numerous Legendary Pokémon have migrated to the region. Galarian variants of Articuno, Moltres, and Zapdos have been sighted, as well as the Ultra Beasts, the Lake Guardians, the Creation Trio... yep, all previous Legendaries are now present in Sword & Shield. In addition, two new Regis have appeared on the scene: Regieleki and Regidrago. I'll let you surmise which types these new Legendaries are.
Now, the Bus Tour is a tour of the places in the United Kingdom that inspired the cities of Galar. In the five-part YouTube series, we learn that Motostoke's brick buildings and cast-iron staircases were influenced by Manchester, and Wyndon's coliseum and wheel are just like London's Olympic Stadium and the London Eye. This is also accompanied by a downloadable Galar Expedition Guide, which shows off the stunning artwork of Galar's environments, and reveals even more secrets about the region and Pokémon that make their home here.
Moreover, as part of the promotion, The Pokémon Company has a stellar competition which Pokémon fans from all over will want to know about. The bundle includes a Nintendo Switch, one copy of Pokémon Shield, a TCG Booster Box, and two Theme Decks. The box is the Darkness Ablaze expansion, released earlier in summer, and boasts the Charizard VMAX and Eternatus VMAX cards. All together, it's an enviable prize: all you have to do is follow the GAMINGbible account on Instagram and Twitter, and reply with the hashtag "#PokemonSwordShieldEX" and "#PokemonTCG." Good luck!
