New Pokémon Sword, Pokémon Shield coming to Nintendo Switch

Nintendo is taking Pokémon trainers on a new adventure.

The company just announced two new games for Nintendo Switch coming in late 2019: Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.

The next adventure takes place in the new Galar region, where people and Pokémon live in a variety of environments — contemporary cities, vast plains and snowy mountains. Together, you and the Pokémon will explore the region, visit new gyms and challenge other eager trainers to claim victory.

Three new Pokémon are also available for trainers to select as their trusty partner as they venture out into the Galar region.

  • Grookey, the grass chimp
  • Scorbunny, the fire rabbit
  • Sobble, the water lizard

Check out those new Pokémon here.

These new games will be released worldwide in late 2019, but trainers can pre-order Pokémon Shield & Pokémon Sword now at Best Buy.

My Best Buy® members can also receive $10 in rewards certificates with their pre-order. Details here.
