During a Pokemon Direct stream, Nintendo showed off the newest Generation of Pokemon, titled Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield. The game takes place in the Galar region, which is said to be based off the United Kingdom, which is described as such:
Pokémon Sword and Shield take place in the Galar region, this region has many diverse environments for the player to explore, alongside the cities and towns dotted throughout the land, these include plains, forests, snowy mountains and caves. Connecting some of the larger cities appears to be some sort of train system in the maps north. Unlike Alola, these games will return to having Gyms that the player must battle with the goal of becoming the Champion.Source: Bulbapedia
