Pokémon Sword and Shield Announced

The announcement was accompanied by the first footage of the newest Pokémon title and the reveal that it will take place in the Galar region.

We also got a glimpse of the new grass, fire, and water starters.

Players will be able to choose the grass chimp Grookey, the fire rabbit Scorbunny or the water lizard Sobble in the all new Galar region for these 8th Gen Pokemon titles.

When detailing the starters, director Shigeru Ohmori described Grookey as a mischievous Pokemon full of boundless curiosity, Scorbunny as always running about, bursting with energy, and Sobble as a bit timid, shooting out attacks as it hides itself in the water.


Evolutions for the starters were not shown during the Direct.

The trailer showed Pokémon battles, the beautiful backdrops, weather effects, and so much more.

As for more on the Galar region, it is said to contain many environments, including “idyllic countryside, contemporary cities, thick forests, and craggy, snow-covered mountains.”

Trainers will still be training their Pokémon and battling Gyms, all while working to become the Champion and the best there ever was.

Pokémon Sword and Shield will release worldwide on the Nintendo Switch in late 2019.
