According to a tweet that was shared by the developers working on Pokémon Sword and Shield, the game runs on Yuzu Switch Emulator. It just doesn’t seem to be fully playable even if it runs fine as seen in screenshots. At the moment, the developers are looking into fixing any problems with the emulation of the game on PC.

Yuzu is a Nintendo Switch Emulator for PC that can run the native Switch games with enhancements like a higher resolution and better performance. One of the games that have benefited from being emulated on PC is The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, which had some performance issues for the Nintendo Switch.
