Pokémon Direct: welcome Pokémon Sword and Shield!

Today, Nintendo offered us a quick (7 minutes) Pokémon Direct, to announce a game that all Pokémon fans were waiting for: the next RPG entry in the Pokémon franchise. And we’ve been served! Let’s have a quick look!

What was revealed?

During those 7 minutes, Nintendo revealed only one game (or two to follow the Pokémon tradition): the combo Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. Those two games are coming on Switch, late 2019.

As usual, you will be able to choose between a female or male character. The story takes place in Galar (a brand new region that looks like England).


And here are the 3 new starters (really cute to be honest):


From left to right: Grookey (grass), Scorbunny (fire), and Sobble (water).

Parting words

The game looks gorgeous (for a Pokémon game) and just a few info have been released, but it already is thrilling! We can’t wait to see what will be the new legendary Pokémon of this new generation (maybe some dogs/wolfs, looking at the games’ logo).

What do you expect from the new Pokemon generation? Let us know in the comment section below!
