==Reception==
 
===Pre-release===
The removal of the National Pokédex caused a lot of backlash from fans of the series. The controversy was referred to as "Dexit" (a combination of Pokédex and {{wp|Brexit}}).<ref>[https://www.usgamer.net/articles/pokemon-sword-and-shield-pokedex-controversy]</ref>
 
===Post Release===
Pokémon Sword and Shield received positive reviews among release, but lower than most other core series releases. {{wp|IGN}} rated the games a 9.3/10,<ref>[https://www.ign.com/articles/2019/11/13/pokemon-sword-and-shield-review Pokémon Sword and Shield Review - IGN]</ref> praising the simple battling system and Dynamaxing, but criticizing the basic graphics and lack of a full Pokédex.
