Well, the day is finally here, a new Pokémon generation is finally upon us. I don’t believe I’ve mentioned it here on my blog yet, but I am a huge fan of this franchise and have been playing since the original titles Red and Blue on the Game Boy.

Since the release of Pokémon X and Y on the Nintendo 3DS, I’ve honestly haven’t been enjoying the franchise as much as I would like but nevertheless I am back on the hype train and ready to explore the new region known as Galar which looks pretty massive (and linear) judging by the screen.

Galar appears to be based on the United Kingdom with diverse environments spanning from snow-covered mountains, industrialized cities, misty forests and much more. To top it off, the game looks gorgeous

While I was not too keen on the starters at first glance, I soon warmed up to each of them after some time. I’m going with Sobble because just look, it’s adorable.

As I’ve said before, I’m a huge fan of the franchise and this year I want to take a look back at the series replay through each title, and give some impressions as a lead up to Sword and Shield. I hope you will take the time to read them once they do finally go up.

Thank you for reading.
