Today we have some information on how long it could take to beat the main story of Pokemon Sword and Shield.
A streamer who has been playing an early copy of the game has reportedly managed to reach the Pokemon league in about 15 hours and 23 minutes. Assuming the streamer takes another 1.5 hours to beat the league, Pokemon Sword and Shield would probably take around 17 hours for the player to beat.
Assuming 17 hours is the average, Pokemon Sword and Shield would be faster to beat than all previous mainline Pokemon games. Pokemon Let’s GO Pikachu/Eevee takes on average 25 hours to beat, while Pokemon Diamond/Pearl requires 41 hours.
We also have to keep in mind that the streamer was on a blind run, meaning they had no guides to refer to or help them out. They had also watched all the cutscenes in the game.
