Get ready for a new journey, Nintendo fans: Pokémon Sword and Shield are officially coming to the Nintendo Switch this year.

With a history spanning over 20 years, Pokémon has captured the hearts and minds of literal generations of fans. It's literally the highest-grossing media franchise of all time.

So, there's obviously a lot of excitement surrounding this announcement. The newest generation of the classic RPG series doesn't have an official release date yet (most people think late 2019), but that hasn't stopped retailers from riding the hype train and posting pre-order deals online.

There aren't a ton of offers so far, but there are sure to be more after the release date is announced. Until then, we've rounded up all the best (and earliest) pre-order deals for Pokémon Sword and Shield. Be sure to check back in on this article for updates throughout the year!
