Pass only if you want the spoilers from today’s Nintendo Direct!
The time has come! The next two new Pokemon games have been announced in today’s Nintendo Direct. And they are…
Pokemon Sword and Shield!
The new games take place in the Galar Region. With clockworks, bridges, rivers, and more, the place has a very Nordic vibe to it. The trailer also teased vast forests, frigid mountains, and sprawling plains in the region. Don’t worry though, you won’t be traveling alone. Old fan favorites like Pikachu, Minccino, and Munchlax were shown to be natives to this region. But that’s not all, as with all new Pokemon regions, there’s new Pokemon for you to encounter as well. The Galar Region is no different.
Meet the three Pokemon that could become your starter for this region: Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble.
Grookey is a grass type monkey-like pokemon that appears to like to play music with the stick on its head, banging rocks like a drum.
Scorbunny is a swift firey bunny Pokemon that can light things on fire with its feet as it runs around. It appears very confident and lively.
Sobble is a shy water type lizard pokemon that blows bubbles and tends to hide in the water to avoid attackers.
The game also seems to return to the same turn-based battle system of prior games as opposed to the more Pokemon GO style that was adopted for Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee. It will be released in late 2019.
As more details come out as always we will keep you posted.
