Pokémon Sword and Pokemon Shield announced for the Nintendo Switch

Hi everyone,

Today morning was very exciting! Since yesterday, when I heard of today’s Pokémon Direct, I said myself that we would get either a core Pokémon game for the Nintendo Switch or the next iteration of the new Pokémon Let’s Go series. Today, we got a whole new generation of Pokémon.

What I saw in the trailer is really good. The starter Pokémon looks really nice! It will be a difficult decision to choose one of them. Also, the Galar region looks nice but I have my questions. It may have been just me, but I feel like there’s not enough cities. Maybe we just got a teaser map and they are still working on arranging the cities and other routes.

What’s most interesting to me is the game names. Why is it called Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield? Will we see some medieval-themed rival in this game? Fighting with swords? We’ll just have to see.

We should be hearing more about these games during the year until it is released (Maybe at E3?). In the meantime, you can preorder the games on Amazon at the following links:

I have already preordered both games! Oh, and I hope they work with the Pokeball Plus that I love to use with Pokémon Let’s Go: Pikachu 😁.

What are your thoughts on these games? Let me know in the comments.
