Pokémon Sword & Shield - Strongest Steel Move Contest

Following yesterday's reveal of the CoroCoro campaign to name a brand new move in the Japanese version of Pokémon Sword & Shield, CoroCoro has put out some further details on their website about the contest. As said, the contest requires there to be no more than 8 characters of Katakana, Hiragana or English and has to not have been used previously in the game. The winner is not determined based on popularity but by decision from the developers. If multiple people suggest the same name, then the overall winner will be decided by random lottery. To enter, you need to send in a special post card which comes with this month's issue of CoroCoro, due out on April 15th. The deadline for entries is May 10th
