A Sword & Shield player wowed the Pokemon community after they shared their epic recreation of Galar champion Leon’s league cards in real life.

The Pokemon franchise was brought into its eighth generation with the release of Sword & Shield in 2019. The Nintendo Switch title introduced new additions to the series such as Dynamaxing and Max Raids.

Another new feature in the Gen VIII RPG is League Cards, which players can obtain from Gym Leaders and fellow Trainers. One fan took it to the next level by creating champion Leon’s card’s in real life – and they look amazing.

In Sword & Shield, players are given their very own League Card which they can customize to their heart’s content. However, the most coveted one in the game is from the Galar Champion himself.

A fan in love with the feature re-created Leon’s card’s in real life, and shared it in the Pokemon community. Redditor ‘Paper64ink‘ is the genius behind the Gen VIII creation.

According to the user, they printed the photos out and had them laminated to obtain the shiny holo textures that you see in the Nintendo Switch title.

As if that wasn’t impressive enough, the Pokemon fan also created several variants of Leon’s Cards which players can get throughout the game – such as the rare version you get rewarded after beating the Champion in the Battle Tower.

Fans of the eighth generation title were blown away by his creation. One user exclaimed, “They look amazing, how did you make them?” Another pointed out that Game Freak should have allowed players to officially print their own League Card in real life.

Paper64ink got such a great reception, they plan on opening an Etsy store to sell items like this. The user credited fellow Redditor ‘dbizal‘ for inspiring his creation.

Sword & Shield’s latest DLC, The Crown Tundra, is set to drop on October 22. Who knows, perhaps the add-on will also bring new customization options for players’ League Cards.

The World of Warcraft 22 October Hotfixes sees some major changes to some of the game’s most popular classes alongside a host of other changes.

In the run-up to the highly anticipated release of the Shadowlands expansion, Blizzard have made several key updates to WoW Classic, as well as the Battle for Azaroth.

Between 14-22 October, there has been a range of different updates to the game, but some of the most important have been rolled out after 19 October. These changes include a whole host of alterations to some of the game’s most popular classes, items, quests, and bug fixes.

Blizzard EntertainmentNew adjustments have been made to several of the game’s most dominant classes.

Class Changes

Some of the main changes these Hotfixes will implement apply to the games major classes.

The healing classes of the the game have been given significant buffs, specifically the changes made to the Priest’s ‘Atonement’ to increase the healing lower level characters receive from the spell.Also, taking the Priest with you on “Blade of Twilight” lets the player return to Whispering Woods using the Tirisfal Camp Scroll.

Healers aren’t the only ones who have seen some positive changes. The Demon Hunter has also seen a revision of a bug which decreased armor when using Demon Spikes while buffed.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Mage class has seen significant nerfs, with “Arcane Pummelling” losing 40% of its damage per wave and Vision of Perfection no longer proccing Rune of Power.

Headgun Changes

Another significant change in this hotfix appears on the Tactical and Blink-Trigger Headguns, whose cooldown on-use effects have been increased significantly from 30 seconds to 5 minutes. This makes firing those bullets a lot harder, and you’ll have to use them much more sparingly.

Trick or Treat?

As Hallow’s End dominates the game, players will be pleased to hear that the Hallow’s End Candy Bucket in The Veiled Stair now appears in all phases, offering treats to any passers by whenever they need them!
