Pokemon Sword And Shield Announced in Pokemon Direct

Pokemon Switch is now Pokemon Sword and Shield.

Today The Pokemon Company finally revealed the new Pokemon game coming to Nintendo Switch. Pokemon Sword and Shield will be set in the brand new Galar region.

The Galar region will feature industrial cities, mountains, open fields and looks a little bit like the UK – hopefully with less rain.
