The Pokemon Nintendo Direct aired today at 9 AM ET and was only 7 minutes long. However, it revealed something we’ve already expected – new Pokemon RPG games. Accordingly, Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield would come soon to Nintendo Switch.
Before the Pokemon Nintendo Direct livestream, we’ve already received many rumors according to which the event would mark the announcement of a new Pokemon game. As it turned out, as reported by Digital-Overload, the event presented not one, but two new Pokemon games that we’ll have the chance to play soon on Nintendo Switch.
While we don’t know much about the upcoming Pokemon games, the official Pokemon Twitter page reported that “in Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield, you’ll explore the expansive Galar region, which is filled with idyllic countryside and contemporary cities – vast plains and snow-covered mountains.” Accordingly, as we’ll have a new region, there will be many new Pokemon monsters to meet.

As said, Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield, the new RPG games for Nintendo Switch, would be set in a new region, Galar, and would boast some never-before-seen Pokemon, too. Among them, there will be Grookey the Chimp Pokemon, Scorbunny the Rabbit Pokemon, and Sobble the Water Lizard Pokemon.
As for Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield release date, Pokemon Nintendo Direct did not reveal much, but, according to CEO of the Pokémon Company, Tsunekazu Ishihara, in a recent statement, the new Pokemon games would come out this year.
“Along the way, there will be many more never-before-seen Pokémon waiting to be discovered! They’re waiting for you, Trainers. Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will be released simultaneously worldwide in late 2019,” the official Pokemon Twitter page added. Accordingly, 2019 would be a particular year for Pokemon games with many updates to come, besides the new Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield RPG games for Nintendo Switch.
