The Galar Region In ‘Pokémon Sword and Shield’

Galar Region

Through the years, many Pokémon games have established their areas on lots of real-world nations. A good example would be the Alola area. However, for the upcoming Pokémon Sword and Shield, it looks like the match is currently taking inspiration in the UK. For those which aren’t mindful of the news, Pokémon Sword and Shield is the upcoming mainline Pokémon match for the Switch which is released later this year.

We knew a match was planned for the Change for a little while today, so it’s nice to get this confirmed finally. While Pokémon: Let’s Go on the Change was meant as a sort of stop-gap to maintain Pokémon fans interested, it appears that Sword and Shield will probably be a mainline game similar to how Sun and Moon were around the 3DS. That means we need an all-new region for the game which seems to be Galar.

The initial map of the area (shown above) is interesting for a lot of reasons, not least thanks to how similar it is to the United Kingdom (albeit reversed ). The trailer (shown below) also gives further British vibes concerning the architecture and countryside, with many pointing out that the large clock building featured in the trailer is very similar to St. Pancras in London.

Not to mention that the outfits do seem British in a fashion sense. As someone that’s from the UK and grew up in the countryside of Hampshire, I think it’s great the Pokémon series has decided to use it as an inspiration for a region in the general setting.
