Pokemon Sword and Shield video takes us on a tour of Galar


See Sobble smile!

The Pokémon Company has released a near ten-minute video promoting the upcoming Nintendo Switch release Pokémon Sword and Shield. The clip explores the Galar region, and features many of cute critters that can be found within.

We see the terrific trio of Scorbunny, Sobble and Grookey taking a trip around the countryside, including getting a face-to-face with another new kid, Wooloo, along with classic Pokémon Eevee and Pikachu. We also go inside the arena to see trainers in battle, offering another glimpse at the chonky brother that is Gigantamax Pikachu.

Mimikyu, Ponyta, Alcremie, and numerous other Pokémon old and new also put in an appearance.

Pokémon Sword & Shield launch November 15 on Nintendo Switch.
