The new Pokemon Switch games have been announced today (Feb. 27), featuring new Gen 8 Pokemon, and the ‘action’ will take place in the Galar region.
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. There will be various Gyms in the Galar region, aiming for the enviable and admirable title of Champion
Players can explore the Galar region by choosing one of these three starter Pokemon:
- Grass Type Pokemon Grookey – A mischievous Chimp Pokémon that is full of boundless curiosity
- Fire Type Pokemon Scorbunny – A Rabbit Pokémon that is always running about, bursting with energy
- Water Type Pokemon Sobble – A somewhat timid Water Lizard Pokémon that shoots out attacks as it hides in the water
Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield will be released worldwide in late 2019.
