    Really reaching to bottom of the barrel get people to buy both games. In a year or 2 they are going to release Pokemon "Knight" with the same issue.

    they did have 18 gyms planned, but unfortunately they didn't have time to copy paste the 3DS door opening animations over to the switch so 17 of the gyms are broken, you get 1 gym guys, so make it count

    There are more NPG's (Non Playable Gyms) than actual Gyms? WTF?

    They never said the games will both have the same 8 gyms. Sword and Shield might have ENTIRELY different gyms meaning only two non playable gyms.

    From the POV of a player who only owns 1 version, and knows about the existence of 18 total gyms, they only have access to 8 gyms and 10 will not be accessible unless the player plays the other version. No?

    "18 different types of Gyms that exist in Galar contribute to the background setting of the story"

    There's 18 total, we visit/conquer 8 of them.

    It seems like a teeeeeeerrible idea to even mention those 18 gyms, then, good lord XD

    GameFreak has not been good with PR for Sword and Shield...

    Hahaha damn.
    These guys are just digging deeper and deeper into their own coffin.
    First the whole National Dex, animations, models and awful next-gen graphics, and now this?

    I just hope all of this gets them where it hurts... in their pockets. :^}

    Oh lets not fool ourselves, its going to sell like hotcakes...Even tho it looks like a HD 3DS game and them cutting content to save "time" its still going to sell like crazy. Bad Publicity is still publicity after all...

    Lame.. If one can play only 8 why mention 18.. They could have said any number.. 36. 56 and it doesnt change anything.

    And yet another more reason this game sucks. I miss Gold and Silver were you were able to take on 16 gyms.

    Looks like I will just skip these games like skipped X and Y and the remakes of Ruby and Sapphire.

    I don't get ALL the hate.

    It's like a soccer league. There's the good one (major) and the smaller one (minor) no one really cares about. To go to the E4 you have to conquer the major league.

    That probably means there are two gyms that are in the minor league in both games. (Or more if there's some major overlap, which I would assume would probably be at least one or two.)

    It's like walking by a tiny city (like that second city in gold/silver), they're not big or important enough to have a gym in the major league, but they still have a minor league gym, which I think is a nice touch and better than nothing.

    I think it's an interesting concept. And personally, if I were in charge of this, I would make the minor gyms also playable, you just... Don't get a badge. (Or whatever). Don't see that happening, though. (Sadly)
