The Pokémon Company has revealed that Trainer customization will return in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.

Serebii reports that that the winning entry in UNIQLO’s Global T-Shirt Design Competition – a Gyarados above three Magikarp – has been added as a clothing item that your Trainer can wear in the upcoming Nintendo Switch exclusives.

As well as this, CoroCoro Comic has revealed that their next issue will have the “latest information for Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.” That issue will be out on Friday 21st June, meaning that we’ll likely learn whatever it is that the magazine will share beforehand at E3 2019.

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 in late 2019.
