Twitter has revealed that Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield were the “most tweeted about games” during E3 2019.

That said, this can largely be attributed to the conversation that came after game producer Junichi Masuda had shared that not all Pokémon will appear in the upcoming Nintendo Switch exclusives.

In more positive news, Nintendo was the “most tweeted about game publisher” last week, with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel and Animal Crossing: New Horizons generating the most conversation for the company.

Whereas news about Banjo and Kazooie’s addition to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was one of the moments that had generated the most conversation about E3 2019 on the social media platform.

In Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, you will choose between three starter Pokémon – Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble – before having the chance to explore the Galar region – with its idyllic countryside, contemporary cities, thick forests, and craggy, snow-covered mountains. Challenging the Gyms in the region, you will once again look to become Champion.

Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide on November 15th.
