During yesterday’s Nintendo Direct, Pokémon Sword and Shield have been officially revealed as the new main entries in the series. The new games will be set in a new region called Galar, which will feature mountains and plains among its locations.

Pokémon Sword and Shield will mark the debut of the 8th Pokémon generation, and the first three new monsters have been revealed. Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble will be the three new starters, but it’s been confirmed that we will see plenty more of new Pokémon in the game, as well as brand new adventures. Not much else has been said about the two games, but the future looks exciting for all Pokémon fans.

A trailer has also been released, and you can find it below.
