Today’s 15-minute long Pokémon Direct has revealed a lot of new information on the upcoming Pokémon Sword & Shield games, including the new Dynamax feature, seven new Pokémon, a host of characters, and more. You can see the full presentation in the video above.
The eighth generation of Pokémon games were announced in a recent Pokémon Direct, and their names are Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. These games will be released exclusively for the Nintendo Switch in late 2019.
Pokémon Sword & Shield take place in the Galar region, which appears to be heavily inspired by Great Britain. The three starter Pokémon for this region were also unveiled in this Pokémon Direct.
