Pokemon Sword and Shield announced

Pokemon Sword & Pokemon Shield announced for Switch

We saw a sneak peak of three starter Pokemon: Grookey, a chimp full of boundless curiosity; Scorbunny, a rabbit bursting with energy; and Sobble, a timid water lizard. There's also very obvious steampunk-ish feel in some of the shots of the city, making this new world more unique than past games.

Pokemon Sword and Shield were today announced for Nintendo Switch during a special Pokemon Direct early this morning. And like previous games, we will get a grass-type, fire-type, and water-type. Grookey is the Grass type, and a curious monkey.

Sword and Shield are both set in Galar, which is a new locale specifically designed for this fresh generation of games.

Gardaí arrest man in connection with deaths of 39 people in Essex
Police have revealed they believe all 39 people found dead in a lorry trailer at an Essex industrial park are from Vietnam . A 25-year-old man from Northern Ireland, has been charged with 39 counts of manslaughter and conspiracy to traffic people.

The fighting aspect of catching a wild Pokemon has returned. If you still keep up with your 3DS and continue to play older titles such as Sun/Moon or X and Y, you would probably like to know if Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield are coming to the 3DS, right? There is no word yet on which Legendary Pokemon will appear for which version. First, the region was revealed to be the Galar region, with a clear distinct England feel to it, from Big Ben to a soccer/football stadium.

While details about the release date are now unknown outside of being in late 2019, November is a safe bet, considering Pokemon Lets Go and Pokemon Sun and Moon released in November 2018 and 2016 respectively.

That's all we know at the moment, but not all there is.
