A 24-hour livestream for “Pokémon Sword and Shield” on Oct. 4 is to feature the Glimwood Tangle forest area of the two games’ British-style Galar region, according to The Pokémon Company.

Ahead of the Nov. 15 launch of the two new installments, The Pokémon Company is providing a preview of one of the games’ themed areas.

The Glimwood Tangle forest is located deep within the Galar region, according to a preview page for the livestream event, and appears to correspond to an area in the northwest of a Galar map revealed last February.

The 24-hour livestream, which The Pokémon Company notes is not actual game footage, claims to originate from a camera embedded within the forest, and the broadcast is a “chance to get to know the various Pokémon that make their home” there.
