Find out more about Pokemon Sword and Shield's Galar region with this detailed map.


Earlier today Nintendo held a rather short Direct focused around the latest Pokémon games, Sword and Shield. Along with new Pokémon, players will also get to experience a brand-new region, one of which will no doubt take advantage of all the Switch has to offer. If you’re curious what Pokémon Sword and Shield’s Galar region will look like, then look no more as this beautifully detailed map will give you a nice overview of the new location.

If you’re interested in seeing the Galar region in full detail, then you’ve come to the right place. As an island, the region itself is fairly long and thin. You can see some of the various locations you’ll visit spread across the island, as well as a rather intricate looking railway system.

Here's the full map of the Galar region in Pokémon Sword and Shield.

We’re not sure yet exactly how many of the areas on the map you’ll visit along your journey. Based on previous Pokémon games, though, we imagine you’ll visit quite a few along the way. There’s also not really any information on whether this iteration of Pokémon will play more like regular Pokémon games have in the past, or if it will take a book from the Let’s Go games for mechanics and the sort. No matter what Nintendo decides to do, both Pokémon Sword and Shield look to be a promising addition to the series, and we’re anxious to dive into the games as more information becomes available.
