You can check out all three starters (Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble) below.
The game will be set in the Galar region, which is described as an "expansive region with many environments". There are sure to be dozens of additional Pokemon to unveil at E3 2019 and beyond, but these are the three companions you'll choose between as you embark on your latest adventure.
The description states this Pokemon is mischievous and full of boundless curiosity.
You'll visit the various Gyms in the region, and work your way to becoming Champion. Aside from another indication that this might be an England-inspired region, it could represent a legendary Pokemon; it appears to be both breathing fire (or smoke) and shooting out lightning bolts, and there are small figures at its feet that seem to be having a bad time.
Pokemon Sword and Shield Release Date Revealed: Coming to Nintendo Switch "Late 2019" | PS4, Xbox, Nintendo Switch News, Reviews and Features - Daily Star
Nintendo isn't the only company celebrating Pokemon Day.
Remember that traditional Pokemon RPG that Nintendo promised a year ago?
It's true that games like Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are significantly different from Pokemon Red and Blue, but that's merely the product of many small changes made over the course of two decades.
Nintendo confirmed today Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield releases in late 2019. This is everything we know so far about them based on the Pokemon Twitter page. The point is that Game Freak doesn't like to make big, sweeping changes to Pokemon from generation to generation - significant change for the Pokemon series is something that takes years, and as a result, the series has started to feel a little stale. It commemorates the launch of the first Pokémon video games in 1996. "We would never pass up a chance to celebrate Pokemon".
