Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Revealed for Switch, New Pokémon Showcased

Pokemon Sword

The eighth generation of Pokémon has been revealed as Pokémon Sword and Pokemon Shield.

The new games were revealed today during Nintendo’s Pokémon direct and will launch later this year.

This direct came with a new gameplay trailer and showcased all three of the new starter Pokémon that will accompany players on their journeys. Grookey is the grass Pokémon, Scorbunny is the fire Pokémon, and Sobble will serve as the water Pokémon.

As many may know, Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield take place in an all new region—the Galar region—and will launch for Switch. This marks the first time a mainline Pokémon entry has launched on one of Nintendo’s home consoles.

Though the new games were the only ones on display during the Direct, Nintendo did tease more to come for Pokémon coming later this year.

Until Nintendo has more to share, check out the trailer below and keep up with OnlySP on FacebookTwitter, and YouTube.
