    Pokémon Sword and Shield just Announced! (Spoilers)

    So, the Pokémon Direct earlier today announced Generation 8, set in the new Galar Region (which seems to be based partly on Sweden). It didn't show much, but did give us the three starters.

    The Grass Monkey, Grookey
    The Fire Bunny, Scorbunny.
    The Water Lizard, Sobble.

    Here's the actualy Direct for anyone interested. It's 7 minutes long, and the Pokémon's names get revealed around 5:28.

    I'm really excited to see a Generation of one of my favorite games coming to the Switch.
    Anyone else excited for these games?

    Based on the rumors of there being armored Pokemon, I am a bit weary. I like mega evolutions myself and was kind of disappointed they stopped making those. I hope it will end up being a game I want to play but as of right now, I just can't say.

    Oh, Mega-Evolutions stopped being a thing? The last generation I played hardcore was Gen 2 (I was a Silver kid), although I stayed up to date through friends and the occasional Pokemon movie through Gen 3. I dipped my toe into X & Y in college, and my wife put 200 hours into Pokemon Sun. I'm just realizing now that the game pseudohippie is the big console iteration of the series that has been rumored (was it confirmed in the past?) for years. To be honest, I wish this came on the N64 or something back in the peak of my hype. I had this game confused with the Eevee & Pikachu games that came out on the Switch recently. And what the hell is a "Detective Pikachu"?

    Can anyone explain roughly the last....4 years of Pokemon releases to catch me up to speed?

    I only got back into it in 2016 so I am not entirely sure. I just know they stopped making new megas in gen 7. They only had them in gen 6 and released new ones for the gen 3 reboot. Gen 7 had them but nothing new. Not sure if they will be making new ones in gen 8 but I am hoping for it. The z moves were introduced in place of new megas for gen 7 and I think to push more merch.

    If the plan is to have this game come out later this year, I would imagine we will be getting some more news on it in the next week or two. They like to drip stuff out slowly to keep people interested and discussing it.
