Pokémon Sword has easily rivaled Gen 2 for me. There's so much to enjoy in this. 41hrs in, 200 Pokémon, up next is the champion, having a ton of fun with this. Gamefreak outdid themselves with the cultural stuff too, it feels like a very UK Pokémon. My only gripe with the game is your "Rival" (Hop) who .... Out of every rival is easily my most disliked so far. Marnie best "rival" :P Also the OST is fantastic.
