Pokemon Sword and Shield are out today, marking the next generation of pocket monsters to catch and battle. Like most of the main series Pokemon games, it has a little Easter egg to Nintendo's current system, but this one is even more special than you might realize.

The player character has a Nintendo Switch in his or her bedroom. This in itself is pretty standard--Pokemon player characters have had shout-outs to Game Boy, DS, and more in their rooms throughout its long history. This particular Switch, though, showcases the customizable nature of swapping your Joy-Con controllers. As noted by several people on Twitter, the colors of the tiny Switch change to match the first-party Joy-Con you have on your own actual Switch.

It's easy to miss since the system is so tiny on screen, and if you happen to be using third-party Joy-Con they'll appear as a default gray instead. Still, it's a nice touch that helps reflect that the player character represents you, personalized Switch and all.

The reception to Pokemon Sword and Shield has been mostly positive from critics, including in GameSpot's review.

"In collecting, battling, and exploring, Sword and Shield cut out the bloat and focus on what makes these pillars of the Pokemon games so captivating in the first place," Kallie Plagge wrote. "You're not held back by overly complicated back-end systems or hoops to jump through; from the outset, you can start wandering the Galar region, seeing its new Pokemon, and trying out its new battle strategies with very little in your way. This leaves you free to enjoy what Pokemon is all about, and that makes for an incredibly strong showing for the series' proper debut on Switch."

When you think about great kid's shows from the 1980s and '90s, GI Joe, Power Rangers, Transformers, My Little Pony, X-Men: The Animated Series, Fraggle Rock, and others probably come to mind. However, what most people don't know is that one person had a hand in bringing all of those to television, Margaret Loesch.

If you're an avid viewer of Netflix's docuseries The Toys That Made Us, then you've seen her pop up before. And in Season 3--which just hit the streaming service--Loesch is interviewed in-depth for her work on Power Rangers. In an interview with GameSpot, Toys That Made Us creator Brian Volk-Weiss discussed learning about just how much Loesch had worked on.

"One of the things that surprised me the most, and it's not specific to a toy or a toy line, but Margaret Loesch," explained Volk-Weiss. "It was just so weird to me that here's this woman, who was so influential on so much stuff that I was into as a kid--and people our age were into--and nobody knew who she was. I ended up interviewing her three separate times. But I remember at the first interview with her saying, 'I did this, and I did that. And I did this, and I did that.' And in my head I'm like, 'This woman's full of s***.' It's like, Anakin Skywalker is Darth Vader. He's Luke's father, and he built C-3PO? Come on.

"There's no way one person did all that. I did probably a dozen hours of research and found out every single thing she said was true. And there's actually a lot of stuff she's also done that she didn't mention. And I said to her the second time I saw her, 'Why are there people who have done 1% of what you have, and they're famous and they're doing conventions, and you're not?' And she's like, 'Honestly, I always thought the work should speak for itself, and maybe I should have hired a publicist and I didn't.' And so, just me, and we're actually doing a full scale two-hour documentary, just about her right now, that we're self financing. So, getting to meet her, know her, was absolutely one of the greatest things in my entire life."

Loesch appears in Season 3 of Netflix's The Toys That Made Us discussing working with Stan Lee while trying to make the Power Rangers show. The latest offerings of the comedic docuseries contains that episode, and others that focus on My Little Pony, wrestling toys, and the best episode to date, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

All three seasons of The Toys That Made Us are available to stream on Netflix.

Xbox One's New Update Introduces Fan Feedback-Driven Features

Xbox One's New Update Introduces Fan Feedback-Driven Features

The latest Xbox One update begins rolling out today, introducing a number of new features and improvements to the console's functionality. Xbox Action for the Google Assistant is the headlining new feature of the November update, but there are also changes to the way gamertags are displayed, new text filters that make sure you don't have to read everything angry guys send you after killing them too many times in Gears 5, and improvements to the Mixer viewing experience.

Xbox Action for Google Assistant is available in all countries where the Google Assistant is supported, although only English language options are available right now, with additional language support coming in the future. This new feature allows you to use voice control with your Xbox One from any Google Assistant and Home-enabled smart speakers or devices, including iOS and Android smartphones with the Google Assistant app installed. Much like the Xbox Skill for Alexa, Xbox Action gives you more options when it comes to controlling your Xbox with the power of speech.

During E3 earlier this year, Microsoft announced that it would be revamping gamertags across PC, mobile, and Xbox One. As of today, 13 additional worldwide alphabets have been added as part of the latest update, along with a new display option for gamertags on Xbox One. Thanks to a new four-digit suffix, you can also now choose a gamertag name even if it's already been taken. Xbox will simply add the small suffix to the end to ensure everyone is still unique.

Searching for gamertags has been made easier now, too, with the new "People Search" feature that allows you to find others using partial or non-exact search terms.

In terms of content filtration, the newest update gives you the opportunity to set your own specific level of automated filtration when it comes to receiving text-based messages on Xbox Live. There are four filtration levels to customize--Friendly, Medium, Mature, and Unfiltered--that you can configure by going to Settings > General > Online safety and family > Privacy & online safety > Message safety on your Xbox One. From here, any message that's beyond your safety setting will be replaced with a [Potentially offensive message hidden] placeholder.

The new update also adds some minor improvements for Mixer viewers. Anyone watching content on the streaming platform now has the option to move the Mixer chat to either the left or right side of the screen, or hide it altogether. When one of your subscriptions is within a week of expiration, the subscribe button has also now been updated with a reminder to renew.

For further details, Xbox Wire has information on everything included in this month's patch.

Pokemon Go November Community Day: Start Time, Shiny Chimchar, And More

Pokemon Go November Community Day: Start Time, Shiny Chimchar, And More

Pokemon Go has quite a few events lined up for the rest of November, including the arrival of a new Legendary Pokemon. Before then, however, Niantic is hosting the game's latest Community Day. This month's event takes place this Saturday, November 16, and as usual, it'll offer players around the world a chance to catch a rare Pokemon and snag a special event-exclusive move.

Typically, every Pokemon Go Community Day only runs for three hours, but the particulars of each event--from what time it starts to what Pokemon you'll be more likely to find in the wild and other bonuses that will be available--vary month by month. To help get you up to speed on this month's event, we've rounded up all the most important details about Pokemon Go's November Community Day below.

What Is November's Featured Pokemon?

Ahead of each Community Day, Niantic designates one "featured" Pokemon that will appear much more often than normal during the event. This month's featured Pokemon is Chimchar, the Fire-type starter from Pokemon Diamond and Pearl. Throughout the Community Day, Chimchar will spawn in the wild more often than it normally does. You'll also have your first chance of encountering a Shiny Chimchar during the event. These will be rare, however, so you'll need to be persistent if you're hoping to add a Shiny to your collection.
