Get ready people of all ages, the 8th generation of Pokemon has officially been announced: Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield. The worldwide phenomenon has seen a recent surge in popularity thanks to Pokemon Go and now it is ready for another generation, and I am SO EXCITED. I have played Pokemon since I was a kid and I honestly cannot wait. I am buying a Nintendo Switch specifically for this because I make good life decisions.

Check out the official release trailer for Pokemon Sword and Shield, below.
