Generation 8 Starter Pokémon Revealed During Pokémon Direct

Even though the all-Pokémon Nintendo Direct didn’t last long, we certainly got enough content to hold us over until Pokémon Sword and Shield is released. The three starter Pokémon were revealed for the new region so let’s check them out in greater detail.

Grookey the Grass-type Pokémon, a loud and seemingly rambunctious monkey.

Scorbunny the Fire-type Pokémon, a quick and hot-footed bunny.

Sobble the Water-type Pokémon, a stealthy and timid kind of lizard.

We have just met the three starters for this region. But it also appears we will be able to catch a number of previous gen Pokémon such as Flygon, Pikachu, Grubble and Hoothoot. Most likely they are abundantly available in the wild and won’t need to be transferred via Pokémon GO or Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee. But there may be some integration between titles.

The reveal was just a tease of what’s to come. Stay tuned throughout the months for more information on Pokémon Sword and Shield.
