Along with The Pokémon Company and Game Freak, Nintendo has officially unveiled the first looks of the 8th generation of Pokémon. A video revealed three starters of Sword, Shield, and the thirteen Pokémons that fans will be seeing in the new region of Galar.

From what we already know, both Pokémon Shield and Pokémon Sword will have better graphics and animations. Players will see sharper characters with more expressive faces and an even clearer environment. With Pokemon Let’s Go being the first and only Pokémon game coming to Nintendo Switch so far, it is almost certain that the ability to trade and battle with Pokemon Let’s Go is included. You can probably bring your eighth generation Pokémon to the Let’s Go region as well.

Pokémon Shield, Pokémon Sword: What’s the difference?

The Pokémon Company has been tight-lipped about the differences between the two; however, if we go back to the previous games released, we could say that there must be unique Pokémons and legendaries exclusive to each version. Releasing two versions of Pokémon is seemingly consistent as this has been their trend for a while, with Red and Blue, Ruby and Sapphire, and Diamond and Pearl.

Get to know the complete list of all the Pokémons for Pokémon Shield and Pokémon Sword that have been revealed so far:

Pikachu (Generation 1, Electric Type)

 

Minccino(Generation 5, Chinchilla Pokemon)

 

Wishiwashi (Generation 7, Water-type Pokemon)

 

Grubbin(Generation 7, Bug-type)
