Nintendo and Game Freak have officially announced a next-generation Pokémon for the Switch called Pokémon Sword and Shield, which will serve as the eighth installment of the core titles and the first to arrive on the home console.
Pokémon Sword and Shield introduce three new starters to the franchise: Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble. Grookey is a mischievous Grass-type Chimp Pokémon, Scorbunny’s an energetic Fire-type Rabbit, and Sobble is a stealthy Water-type Lizard.
Fans can expect Sword and Shield to arrive sometime this Fall.
For over 20 years, Pokémon Trainers have embarked on many adventures through the various regions of the Pokémon world.
Along the way, you’ve met different Pokémon and battled against countless other Trainers.
