Let’s watch the Pokémon Sword and Shield Direct

A Nintendo Direct all about Pokémon Sword and Shield starts now at 3 pm if you want to watch and see what is in store for the Nintendo Switch version of the pet collector JRPG.

Before the Direct, we knew that the games are set in a new region called Galar, with a release sometime in 2019. Hopefully we will get a release date today. We have also seen the three starter Pokémon: Grookey, Scorbunny and Sobble.

So what will Gen 8 hold in store? Stay tuned as we learn what mechanics have been carried over, what is new and hopefully a showcase of some pocket monsters to look forward to, like evolutions or Legendary Pokémon.

It is 15 minutes long, so let’s see how much they can squeeze in that much time. Maybe they can squish Sobble’s cheeks so that it stops looking one incident short of a complete breakdown. That Pokémon has seen something.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
