Pok\u00e9mon Sword and Pok\u00e9mon Shield\u2019s publisher, The Pok\u00e9mon Company, has come out with an apology after multiple errors had been found in a Japanese guideline book for the game. \r\n\r\nThe book titled \u201cPok\u00e9mon Sword Shield Official Guide Book Complete Story Strategies + Garal Encyclopedia,\u201d didn\u2019t make it through the editing process consumer-ready. \r\n\r\nIt released on December 7th, 2019, by Overlap Co., Ltd. and quickly received a lot of negative feedback. The Pok\u00e9mon Company, in a letter posted on their Japanese website, stated that \u201cthe data and data provided by Pok\u00e9mon Co., Ltd. at the time of editing work are incorrect. Yes, and it turned out that there were multiple errors based on it.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe Pok\u00e9mon Company has released a PDF on its website, which states all of the errors in the book. \r\n\r\nIt\u2019s kind of amazing that no one caught the errors, even though there were multiple parties included in the production of the book.\r\n\r\nWell, who knows how The Pok\u00e9mon Company will mitigate the issue? Besides the PDF that they have released, will they start reprinting books with the correct information, or will they chalk this up to a learning experience?\r\n\r\nThat would be a costly error to fix if they start reprinting books, so they may end up continue selling what is on the shelves, and every new book that is produced moving forward will have the amended information. \r\n\r\nAlso, who knows how many people spent time following directions on the guidebook and were led astray. Luckily, all it takes is a bit of searching online to get an answer, but still, having an incorrect guide is not optimal for Japanese players! \r\n\r\nTo reiterate, the guidebook that had all the errors in it was a Japanese one. The American guidebook called \u2018Pok\u00e9mon Sword & Pok\u00e9mon Shield: The Official Galar Region Strategy Guide\u2019 has not been reported to have the errors that its Japanese counterpart has.\r\n\r\nIf a gamer isn\u2019t familiar with Pok\u00e9mon Sword and Pok\u00e9mon Shield, here is a quick trailer to get an idea what it\u2019s all about:\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=rWwEeHB8K2Q\r\n\r\nThe newest additions to the historic Pok\u00e9mon franchise, Pok\u00e9mon Sword and Pok\u00e9mon Shield, have been enjoyed by Nintendo Switch gamers all around the globe.
