Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield

Following a reveal of the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield trailer, Nintendo has officially confirmed that the games will be launching worldwide in late 2019.

Here’s an overview of Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, straight from The Pokémon Company:

A mischievous Chimp Pokémon that is full of boundless curiosity.

Type: FIRE
A Rabbit Pokémon that is always running about, bursting with energy.

A somewhat timid Water Lizard Pokémon that shoots out attacks as it hides itself in the water.

Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will be set in Galar, 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.

You’ll visit the various Gyms in the Galar region, aiming for the enviable and admirable title of Champion!
