Nintendo reveals Pokémon Shield and Pokémon Sword

Today on February 27th, the next generation of Pokémon games has been revealed by Nintendo and the Pokémon company! Later in 2019, trainers can start their adventure in the Galar region in the new titles Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield! Both titles will be released simultanously worldwide in late 2019.

The three starters of generation 8: Grookey, Scorbunny and Sobble

The starters!

Of course there’s no game without cute or interesting start Pokémon! This time you have the choice between the fire bunny Scorbunny, the water frog Sobble or the gras monkey Grookey! All three were introduced in a special prerendered cutscene which does certainly not represent the game’s final look, but definitely it’s a great way of introducing us to our new buddies!

The region

Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will play in the Galar region, a continent wich more vertical based orientation if we can deduct that from the images we have gotten from the trailer.

The trainers

Of course we also need to see how we can play as in the new Pokémon game. So here are the trainers in close ups and during fights, as we’ll of course get the regular Pokémon gras encounters back with Sword and Shield, as well as trainer fights as we are used to them.

So which starter will you pick?

We have made a poll on our Twitter account and would love to hear your decision! Let’s see who is the most picked starter from Scorbunny, Sobble or Grookey!
