The Next Pokémon Adventure: Pokémon Sword and Shield

Pokémon Sword and Shield

Big news from the latest Pokémon Direct! The next gaming adventure from the Pokémon franchise will be… Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. It is set to release on the Nintendo Switch later this year.

Check out the trailer for the game below:

In this new game, trainers can explore the Galar Region, which is described as:  

An expansive region with many environments—idyllic countryside, contemporary cities, thick forests, and craggy, snow-covered mountains. The people and Pokémon live together in this region, and they’ve worked together to develop the industries here.

In Pokémon Sword and Shield, there will be three new starter Pokémon: Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble.

  • Scorbunny is a fire-type Pokémon who is bursting with energy and always running.
  • Sobble is a water-type Pokémon that shoots out attacks as it hides underwater.
  • Grookey is a grass-type chimp who is mischievous and full of curiosity.

Until today, little to no details have been released about this new game. The one note many gamers have so far is that the 3D art is more detailed compared to Pokémon: Let’s Go.

Here’s are some initial reactions to Pokémon Sword and Shield on Twitter:

As both a fan of Pokémon and gaming, I can’t wait to play this game later this year!
