The long-rumored Pokémon Direct arrived last week, and as expected it brought the reveal of the eighth generation of Pokémon games. Pokémon Sword and Shield take players to the new Galar region (inspired by Great Britain) where they'll be choosing between three new starters, Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble. What can we expect from the next evolution of the Pokémon franchise? Join Ben, Elijah, and Jeff as they break it all down on the latest episode of Switched On!
If you enjoy this episode of Switched On!, feel free to check out our previous episodes, where we tackle recent Nintendo Directs, explore Nintendo franchises that need a reboot, and more. We also have a second podcast called Gamnesia After Dark that features non-Nintendo discussion, including video games, TV shows, movies, and the lives of the Gamnesia staff in general.
