During this morning’s Pokémon Direct Game Freak detailed a location called Wild Area. In Wild Area, trainers will be able to explore a large open area with a fully controllable l third-person camera. It also looks like Pokémon will be visible in the world.
Along with exploring on your own, there will also be opportunities to to team up with up to three other players to participate in Max Raid Battles. They look functionally similar to Pokémon Go’s raids, where players work together to capture large versions of familiar Pokémon.
