Pokemón generation 8

New region: Galar

There will be a whole new adventure in the new region Galar, with brand new Pokémon and companions.
Galar is a very big region with different environments, from the laid back countryside to big cities and snow covered mountains. The map certainly looks impressive.
Humans and Pokémon in this region has cooperated to industrialize the region, so perhaps we can expect manufactured metal Pokemón?

New gen 8 starter Pokemón

There will be 3 new starter Pokémon, Grookey, a grass type Pokemón. Grookey looks like some kind of monkey, probably a chimpanzee, which kind of reminds us of Chimchar from gen 4.
Next up is Scorbunny, which like the name suggests is a some kind of bunny, and is Galar's fire type start Pokemón. The question remains what the heck happened to Scorbunnys nasal bone!?
Last but not least is the GHOST type starter Pokemón!!
Nah, we are kidding, it's a water type, and it's called Sobble. Sobble looks kinda dragon/lizard:ish so the last evolve could be some kind of water/dragon type? Let's hope so.
