'Pokemon Sword and Shield' April Fool's Day
Most of the games right now are participating in April Fool's month. And as expected, "Pokemon Sword and Shield" also released an update of its own for one of the most-awaited events of the year.
The popular anime-based game has released a unique Magikarp that will surely fool the players and fans. What makes this Pokemon different from other characters is that it is really uncatchable. Nintendo Life's latest report confirmed that the new Pokemon couldn't be caught using any Poke-ball. However, it will only appear on Apr. 1.
The uncatchable Magikarp is a part of an Extra Event of the game. Once the players enter the "Pokemon Sword and Shield," they will immediately encounter this annoying character. If you want to know more details, all you need to do is click here.
