The 3 new starter Pokemon were revealed as the grass monkey Grookey, the water-lizard Sobble, and fire bunny Scorbunny.

It seems that Pokemon Sword and Shield is returning the franchise's roots with random encounters and gym battles instead of the features of the 4 unique battles of Sun and Moon and the visible Pokemon Let's Go Eevee and Pikachu.

Pokemon Sword and Shield is set to launch this year for Nintendo Switch.
