Every new Pokemon coming to 'Pokemon Sword and Shield' this November that we know about, from Alcremie to Yamper

Pokemon Sword StartersThe Pokémon Company

A pair of brand new Pokémon games are headed to the Nintendo Switch on November 15th, and they'll introduce a whole new generation of Pokémon to fans. "Pokémon Sword" and "Pokémon Shield" mark the 8th generation of Pokémon games, and will bring the total number of Pokémon to more than 1,000.

Like the original Pokémon titles, "Sword" and "Shield" are role-playing games. Players will adventure through the brand-new Galar region, capturing Pokémon and battling other trainers on their way to becoming the Pokémon champion.

However, "Sword and Shield" will be the first main Pokémon games not to include every species of Pokémon in the prior games. While many fan-favorites like Pikachu and Charizard are confirmed to return, players will spend more time getting familiar with the new species of Pokémon introduced in the Galar region.

Players will choose from one of three new starter Pokémon - Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble - at the start of their adventure and encounter countless other Pokémon as they explore Galar. Nintendo has revealed about 15 new Pokémon so far, and there are sure to be dozens more by time the games arrive in November.

Here are all of the new Pokémon we've seen in "Pokémon Sword and Shield" so far, with their official descriptions:
