Pokémon Sword And Shield Competition Winner Disqualified

The UNIQLO Global T-Shirt Design Competition winner will no longer have their creation appear in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield after a decision was made to disqualify the entry.

The design – a Gyarados above three Magikarp – was to be added as a clothing item that your Trainer can wear in the upcoming Nintendo Switch exclusives.

But, after the results were announced, it was soon discovered that its creator had violated the rules of the competition.

That’s because they had previously sold their design online, with the rules stating that all entries must not have been published or sold before.

In Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, you will choose between three starter Pokémon – Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble – before having the chance to explore the Galar region – with its idyllic countryside, contemporary cities, thick forests, and craggy, snow-covered mountains. Challenging the Gyms in the region, you will once again look to become Champion.

Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide in late 2019.
