The Pokémon Company released a new trailer for Pokémon Sword and Shield containing new Pokémon, Galarian forms, and the latest evil team known as Team Yell.
The trailer began with the new Galarian forms (this game’s version of regional variants) for Weezing, Zigzagoon, and Lineoone. Galarian Weezing sports two top hats in the shape of industrious chimneys and is Poison/Fairy Type. It has the ability Levitate, along with a currently unknown ability. Both Galarian Zigzagoon and Linenoone are Dark/Normal type and possess the abilities Pickup and Gluttony. Surprisingly, Galarian Lineoone will receive a new evolution called Obstagoon, which retains its Dark/Normal typing, but trades its previous abilites for Guts and Reckless.
Galar’s Pikachu-like equivalent called Morpeko also made an appearance. This Electric/Dark type Pokémon has the unique ability Hunger Switch, which allows it to switch between its Full Belly and Hangry modes. Morpeko also learns a special move known as Aura Wheel that changes typing based on its current mode.
In addition, The Pokémon Company provided a glimpse at some new characters. These include Bede and Marnie, who will serve as rivals to the player. We also found out about Team Yell: a group of Marnie’s obsessive fans who cause trouble all over Galar.
