Pokemon Sword and Shield: New Pokemon, Forms and Team Yell Announced

Share

This is actually a returning feature from Pokemon Sun and Moon's Alola Forms but updated for the seemingly United Kingdom -based Galar region. Fans were quick to make comparisons between these over zealous followers, and Pokemon fans upset at GameFreak for not including the national Pokedex in Sword and Shield. That just so happens to be today, and sure enough, The Pokemon Company and Nintendo have launched a new trailer for the games.

The latest gameplay trailer also introduced two new rivals to the game, including Bede and Marnie. In its Galarian form, its type changes to normal-dark. Like Zigzagoon again, its abilities are Pickup/Gluttony. Unlike previous Forms of Linoone, the Galarian Linoone can evolve.

Obstagoon is a Dark/Normal type Pokémon, and by the looks of it, can only evolve from Galarian Linoone - Hoenn Linoones need not apply. Those were called Alolan Forms, so the Pokemon who are undergoing the same treatment in Pokemon Sword and Shield will appropriately be known as Galarian Forms. There's at least one new Pokemon in Sword and Shield that has multiple Forms of its own. This information was shared on the official Pokemon Twitter account. In case you've been living under a rock (hey, I know people who played Red & Blue, slept on this series for over a decade and picked it back up again), the general concept is to give old Pokemon new life through different "forms", which allow them to drastically alter their appearance and moveset. It's an Electric/Dark Type Pokemon that stands tall at 1′ and weighs in at 6.6 lbs. Morpeko has two forms in the game - Full Belly mode and Hangry Mode. One such Pokemon is Morpeko, a Pokemon that can use an ability called Hunger Switch to change between electric and dark types in battle.
