Pokémon Sword and Shield could be the best and most disappointing Pokémon games yet
"Although we loved what we saw in the Pokémon Sword and Shield reveal, there's a disappointing lack of any sign that the Pokémon series itself will be evolving any time soon."

Happy Pokemon Day, folks! In celebration of the release of the first generation of Pokemon Games 23 years ago today, Nintendo and The Pokemon Company have finally lifted the lid on this year's brand new, 8th Generation of Pokemon games: Pokemon Sword and Shield.

Set in the Galar region - ostensibly based off of Great Britain (pretty much just England though, really) - the first brand new Pokemon games for the Nintendo Switch really put the system to work in bringing this new region to life. Galar is an expansive region with diverse environments— an idyllic countryside, contemporary cities, thick forest, and craggy, snow-covered mountains. In what's presumably a nod to a combination of classic Northern English cities and London, there's also a quite industrial feel to certain areas of the game, too. Something that's quite unique to a series that's either very naturalistic or very futuristic in its settings.​

It’s been a long time coming, but Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! are finally available across the globe.

To celebrate their release, as some of you have likely already noticed, we’ve created a brand new forum section dedicated to all discussions about these latest Pokémon games. All posts previously found on the Alola Games forum have been moved to the Pokémon Games Discussion forum - the new location for all Pokémon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon chatter going forward.

But that’s not all. Click through to read more!...

Incineroar is the latest Pokemon addition to the Smash Bros lineup - and is the 74th and last* character to be announced for the game for its launch on the 7th December.

*We'll get to the caveat for that in a minute.

Incineroar has a moveset based largely off of its attacks in Sun/Moon, including a final smash based off its signature Z-Move. He's also joined by Street Fighter's Ken - an echo fighter of Ryu.

But, while there may not be any more new characters to be revealed for the game's launch in December, there will be more to come!

Piranha Plant has been announced as an "early purchase" bonus for players that either pre-order or buy the game before the 31st January. The download code for the character will be made available from mid-November, but it's not clear if they'll actually be available to play as when the game launches...
Happy Halloween, everyone!

In honour of this ghostly day, the Pokémon Company has released a new trailer for Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! featuring the lovely Lavender Town in all its spooky glory.


Beyond the location itself, and the fact your Pokémon partners may shiver with fright while exploring, the trailer is fairly brief - but enjoy the new rendition of the classic Lavender Town theme!
