Pokémon Sword and Shield are the first proper new generation Pokémon games for Nintendo Switch, introducing a ton of new adorable creatures in a colorful new world dubbed the Galar Region. And while my E3 demo of Sword and Shield felt largely familiar to previous installments, it did stand out in one big way — literally.

I experienced one of Sword and Shield’s trainer gyms during my demo, and it played out much like a gym does in any previous Pokémon title. Take out a few trainers, solve some basic navigation puzzles and make your way to the gym leader — you know the drill.
