  • ‘Pokemon Sword’ and ‘Pokemon Shield’ revealed for the Nintendo Switch

To Game Freak's credit, the Galar region seems like it'll be a varied one with different biomes, which is definitely nice to see.

Since the inception of the Pokemon series back in 1998, fans have come to love Game Freak and Nintendo's freakish and brilliant brainchild.

As for the rest of the game, it'll be set in a new region called Galar, which developer GameFreak says will be filled with industrialized cities in addition to idyllic countryside. Next is the "Water Lizard Pokemon" Sobble, who is described as a "stealthy" Pokemon that "shoots out attacks as it hides itself in water".

You'll visit the various Gyms in the region, and work your way to becoming Champion.

The description states this Pokemon is mischievous and full of boundless curiosity.

After more than 20 years of waiting, it's finally happening: mainline Pokemon RPGs are finally coming to a home console.

Just as we expected, Nintendo revealed the first core Pokemon RPG titles for the Switch on Wednesday morning during the Pokemon Direct live stream. This is everything we know so far about them based on the Pokemon Twitter page.
