Pokémon’s first mainline Nintendo Switch titles have been revealed and they are Pokémon Sword & Shield. The games are a completely new, RPG with Pokémon Ultra Sun & Moon being the latest in 2017 on the 3DS. The trailer revealed today featured the full 3D setting and a bunch of new areas in the new region, Galar.

The three new starters for Sword and Shield were also revealed. Your fire-type is Scorbunny, grass-type is Grookey, and water-type is Sobble. As you can see below:

The Pokémon company revealed its 23rd anniversary so it makes sense that their next generation title was revealed as well today. Pokémon Sword & Shield will be launching late 2019 only on the Nintendo Switch. The company also said that throughout the year they will be revealing more Pokémon related news.

There’s also an official website for the game here.
