With less than a week to go until Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield launch, the hashtag #ThankYouGameFreak has started to trend worldwide on Twitter.

This has seen the community that surrounds the pocket monster’s ever-popular brand take a moment to send positive messages to the Japanese developer, reflecting on the impact that the Pokémon games have had on their lives.

It was YouTuber and Twitch streamer MysticUmbreon94 that came up with the idea that set the Twitter trend in motion, writing: “Thank you Game Freak for creating the games that got me through all the tough times in my childhood. I know times are rough, but there are still fans that love what you do. Spread if you appreciate what Game Freak does.”

It wasn’t long before prominent members of the community started to rally behind the #ThankYouGameFreak hashtag with their own appreciative comments:

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 on November 15th.
