Gen 8 has begun! It takes place in the new region of Galar (seemingly based on the UK) with these starters:

 

Grookey (Grass): "A mischievous Chimp Pokemon that is always full of boundless curiosity."

Scorbunny (Fire): "A Rabbit Pokemon that is always running about, bursting with energy." 

Sobble (Water): "A somewhat timid Water Lizard Pokemon that shoots out attacks as it hides itself in the water."

 

Sounds like gyms will be returning as well, based on the official website. What do you think? I'm already hyped and can't wait to see more information.

Some info about the Galar region: "Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will be set in Galar, an expansive region with many environments—idyllic countryside, contemporary cities, thick forests, and craggy, snow-covered mountains. The people and Pokémon live together in this region, and they’ve worked together to develop the industries here. You’ll visit the various Gyms in the Galar region, aiming for the enviable and admirable title of Champion!"

Lugia2450,

 

Thank you for sharing this news here!

 

The official website can be found by visiting www.pokemon.com and clicking the announcement there.

 

It looks like we don't have a lot of information yet, but you can view the starters, the region and the game trailer.

 

How exciting to have this come to Nintendo Switch! I think it looks great so far!
