After keeping fans waiting Nintendo has finally announced that they are bringing a brand new Pokemon game to the Nintendo Switch in the forms of Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield. Pokemon Sword and Shield will be set in the Galar region, an expansive region with diverse environments ranging from an idyllic countryside, contemporary cities, thick forest, to craggy, snow-covered mountains.
It is currently unclear how many new Pokemon will be added to the series with this entry but so far we do know of the three starters that players will be able to choose from. These are the grass type Grookey, fire type Scorbunny, and water type Sobble. The pair of games is set to be released later this year and you can check out the official announcement video below.
