Galar Region

Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will be set in Galar, an expansive region with many environments—idyllic countryside, contemporary cities, thick forests, and craggy, snow-covered mountains.

Nice!! I'll be tagging this, even though I only have 1 game in my collection myself.

Might as well tag ... pika pika ?

Wait, we didn't have an official thread for this? I'm surprised. Also tag.

You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

Did you ever hear : "I'll tag along" ?

Hopefully next year we will start to get some trickled out news on the Pokémon Switch title, that's when I expect the content for this thread to get really interesting. 

But for now there is generally a steady flow of Pokémon news all year round here and there for a wide range of things, and the flood gates for Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon News finally seem to be opening.

Very nice OP! Also why is all the Pikachu goodness always japan exclusive?
