HOW TO PLAY POKÉMON SHOWDOWN IN SPANISH
If you are wondering how to play Pokémon Showdown in Spanish , the reality is that you have it a bit complicated. The game is designed to be used in English, and it does not have the option to change the language, so in principle there would be no possibility of playing in another language.
There was a time when players who wanted to enjoy this game in Spanish did so from Pokémon Pandora , but this option has been deleted for a few years now. Now from time to time a server appears that offers us the option to enjoy this game in our language, but it is true that some don’t last long and we have to end up playing in English again.
In any case, the reality is that it is not necessary to have a very high level of English to enjoy Pokémon Showdown. You will only need to learn the names of the attacks in English, something that you will achieve in a very short time, and you will be able to play without having to master the language of Shakespeare.
Once you’ve played a few times you’ll have the vocabulary you need to know to enjoy your battles to the fullest.
