Pokemon Gym

Nintendo of America appears to have accidentally shared new information about Pokémon Sword and Shield ahead of schedule.

According to the Pokémon website Serebii.net, Nintendo of America published a tweet, confirming "once and for all" the stadiums found across the Galar region are in fact Gyms. While this may have already been evident based on the information provided in the recent Pokémon Direct, it's now reportedly been made official. Gym Leaders also appear to be referred to as Gym Masters in this region. Right now, it's not clear if this is a simple name change, or it means something else.

Not long after the tweet was posted, Nintendo of America then deleted it. Perhaps one of its social media ninjas jumped the gun or it was incorrect. Fortunately, Twitter user @mngzeno managed to grab a screenshot before it was removed:
