'Pokémon Sword' and 'Pokémon Shield' announced for the Nintendo Switch.

Following Nintendo’s announcement of the eighth generation of Pokémon games, 'Pokémon Sword' and 'Pokémon Shield' are set to excite us with their release at the end of 2019, promising to take us onto exciting new adventures into the Galar region.

We have already caught glimpses at the adorable new starters - Grookey, Scorbunny and Sobble, who we get to pick at the start of our journey. Footage from the trailer indicates that fans can expect to see both new Pokémon and old favourites appearing in Galar, as well as exciting new locations and the best graphics for any Pokémon game yet.

Pokémon have never been one to disappoint so far, so we can only wait with baited breath for our next trainer adventure to begin.
