Pokemon Sword And Shield Announced During Pokemon Nintendo Direct



The Pokemon Nintendo Direct is currently streaming right now, and we have finally gotten our very first look at the eight generation of Pokemon Games.

Titled Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield, these are the first ever Pokemon mainline entries to come to the Nintendo Switch, not excluding the Pokemon: Let’s Go games since they were technically remakes.

You can watch the trailer for the games here:

Set in a new location called the Galar Region, this game of course features three brand new starter Pokemon. They are:

The Leaf Pokemon Grookey


The Fire Pokemon Scorbunny


And the Water Pokemon Sobble


That’s all the information we have for now, but hopefully more details will be revealed in the coming days.

The games are set to released in late 2019.
