Pokemon Sword and Shield will be released on November 15, 2019. The game will only launch on the Nintendo Switch Platform. Nintendo revealed Pokemon Sword and Shield details on two occasions, first at E3 2019 and later on July 8, 2019.

But apart from the official reveal, data miners try to stay one step ahead and leak out the details before the official announcements. Earlier, a website ‘fireden‘ leaked out details about Pokemon Sword and Shield.
