@axel Neither are particularly challenging or meaty. I guess Sword / Shield is probably meatier if you include the DLC content. In my opinion, the best part of said DLC content wouldn't be enjoyable really while traveling though. I still suggest waiting, but between the two I guess I'd slightly give favor to Sword / Shield. At least with that one you're seeing the more modern direction of the series, versus BDSP being aimed as faithful remakes for people who never played the Sinnoh games originally, with a couple menial extras baked in. I still suggest just waiting until Legends Arceus and playing something else in the meantime. That SMTV just came out and has creature "capturing" and "battling" with, so maybe that?
