Revealed as part of today's Pokémon Direct, the highly anticipated Generation 8 games of the Pokémon series will be called Pokémon Sword and Shield. You'll be able to get your hands on them in "late 2019".

The games will take place in a brand new region called the Galar region, which is set to feature vast plains and craggy snow-covered mountains. Game Freak director Junichi Masuda said that the games will feature "never before seen Pokémon" and "new adventures you've yet to experience".

Also shown in the new trailer were the three new starter Pokémon, Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble.


That's not all, though, as the video ends with a cheeky tease stating that there's "plenty" more in the works for the Pokémon brand in 2019.
