Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield are a pair of role-playing games and upcoming mainline titles in the Pokémon series, to be released for Nintendo Switch in November 2019.


Pokémon Sword and Shield are set in the Galar region. The games star a young Pokémon Trainer who sets off on a journey to become Champion.[3]


The Pokémon Company CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara announced that a core Pokémon installment was in development for Nintendo Switch during Nintendo's E3 2017 presentation. He would state, however, that it may not be released until 2018 at the earliest.[1] During a Pokémon press conference in May 2018, it was announced that the title was planned to release in late 2019.[4] The titles were fully revealed as Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield during a Pokémon Direct in February 2019.[3]
