The video below, courtesy of Game Freak, shows off some of the Galar additions that Sword and Shield will have to offer. Unfortunately, at this time, there is only the Japanese language option so if you don’t know the language, specifics can be tricky. Luckily, the video does a solid job at showing who is on the way. 


This is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Pokemon confirmations. We still have a little bit away from the actual release of Pokemon Sword and Shield, so we can definitely expect to hear more about other Galarian forms of well-known Pokemon, or perhaps entirely new creatures as we draw closer to the game’s launch. Whatever the situation is, we’ll keep you updated on the latest Pocket Monsters as we spot them!

As for the game itself, Pokemon Sword and Shield is slated for a Nintendo Switch exclusive launch on November 15th. For more about the game itself, courtesy of Nintendo: 

“A new generation of Pokémon is coming to the Nintendo Switch™ system. Begin your adventure as a Pokémon Trainer by choosing one of three new partner Pokémon: Grookey, Scorbunny, or Sobble. Then embark on a journey in the new Galar region, where you’ll challenge the troublemakers of Team Yell, while unraveling the mystery behind the Legendary Pokémon Zacian and Zamazenta! Explore the Wild Area, a vast expanse of land where the player can freely control the camera. Team up with three other players locally or online in the new multiplayer co-op Max Raid Battles* in which players will face off against gigantic and super-strong Pokémon known as Dynamax Pokémon.”
