Pokemon Sword and Shield Galarian Forms, Morpeko, and More Introducedon August 7, 2019 by Max Williams
More details about Pokemon Sword and Shield are here, showing us some new Pokemon, as well as the special Pokemon Sword and Shield Galarian Forms of some familiar ones! We’re also introduced to some new rivals and the rowdy fanclub Team Yell. Check out the latest trailer below:
The Galarian Forms look great from the examples we have with the dapper Galarian Weezing and eye-catching Galarian Zigzagoon! Galarian Linoone even gets a new evolution, Obstagoon.
New Pokemon Morpeko stole the show in this trailer though! It’s an adorable Electric/Dark type in Full Belly Mode, but changes form when it gets hungry and goes into the aggressive Hangry Mode. You won’t like it when it’s hangry! Or you will, because it’s still adorable. Morpeko’s hamster wheel-style attack Aura Switch goes from Electric type attack to Dark type in Hangry Mode, and using it will change Morpeko back into Full Belly Mode.
Next up are new rivals, Bede and Marnie, and Marnie’s overenthusiastic fanclub, Team Yell. As with lots of the characters we’ve had introduced already, they have some neat designs. Pokemon Sword and Shield seem to be shaping up nicely!
Pokemon Sword and Shield release on November 15th for Nintendo Switch.
