Grab your caps and head out the door, its time for another Pokémon adventure! The Pokémon Company is back with the next generation of games: Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield!

Coming exclusively to the Nintendo Switch, Sword and Shield is the next generation in the beloved RPG. It was announced Wednesday morning, during a short Nintendo Direct, which happens to have been the 23rd anniversary of the very first Pokémon game for Game Boy. Game Freak director Shigeru Ohmori talks in detail about the game, its world, and the expectations for it.



Pokémon Sword and Shield will take place in the Galar region, a European looking landscape described as having idyllic countryside and contemporary cities vast plains and snow-covered mountains. It has a more industrial age look to it, with large metal cogs against red brick buildings.

Described as something that will appease veteran players and newcomers alike, Pokémon Sword and Shield will go back to the traditional format of being surprised by wild Pokémon in tall grass and fighting them to weaken them before throwing a Pokéball.

To top thing off, the starting three Pokémon options (starters) have been revealed. We have Grookey, a grass-type chimp Pokémon; Scorbunny, the fire-type rabbit; and Sobble, the water-type lizard.

These were the only new-gen Pokémon revealed during the trailer, unfortunately.

We've known for a while now that the developers intended to make the main Pokémon title aimed at older players. This was reassured after the reveal of Pokémon Let's Go, which was more geared toward younger audiences. Currently, Pokémon Sword and Shield has a release window of "late 2019." Expect a holiday release.
