Pokemon Sword and Shield may have divided fans with the lack of Pokemon in its National Dex, but it’s still one of the most hyped games for the Nintendo Switch. And now, the Pokemon Company has released a new trailer which introduces new Pokemon, characters, and also features the New Gigantamaxing Feature.
Several species of Pokemon can use the Gigantamaxing Feature. It changes the shape of some Pokemon and their sizes, as well as adding a special G-Max Moves. They can only use these moves when they go Gigantamax.
In addition, the trailer also added a few new Pokemon. These includes Alcremie, Yamper, Rolycoly, and Duralodon. And yes, since Sword and Shield is inspired by the UK, of course there would be a corgi Pokemon, right?! As for the characters, they introduced Bea, Allister, Chairman Rose, and Oleane.
And while these new games won’t feature every single Pokemon species out there, it would feature a few older species from previous generations. Deino and Jangmo-o will be Sword exclusives, while Larvitar and Goomy are Shield exclusives. Those who purchase the games’ double pack will receive Dynamax Crystals to encounter either Dynamax Larvitar and Dynamax Jangmo-o.
Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield will be released worldwide on November 15, 2019. It will be exclusive for the Nintendo Switch.
