Like other Pokemon games in the series, Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield follows a similar design in having three types (grass, fire, water). The three starters in Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield are:

  • Grookey (left): Grass Chimp Pokemon. This mischievous Pokemon is full of boundless curiosity.
  • Scorbunny (middle): Fire Rabbit Pokemon. Always running about; bursting with energy.
  • Sobble (right): Water Lizard Pokemon. A bit timid; shoots out attacks as it hides itself in the water.

There is currently no release date set for Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield, but Nintendo has announced it will be coming to Nintendo Switch sometime in late 2019.

As more information about the starters becomes available, I will update this page accordingly.
