Pikachu’s original was pretty… well… chubby. And now, with the latest trailer for the Pokemon Sword and Shield games, the Pokemon Company has revealed the Gigantamax forms for several Pokemon. This includes a Gigantamax Pikachu that has become extra chonky!
Yeah, better lay off the ketchup for a while, Pikachu. Other Pokemon with Gigantamax forms in the video include Meowth, Eevee, Charizard, and Butterfree.
The new features include Dynamax battles, as well as the Battle Stadium. The latter lets trainers from all over the world battle one another, though a Nintendo Switch Online membership is required to use that feature. As for Dynamax, it makes your Pokemon bigger and it also unlocks new abilities for your Pokemon.
Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield will be released worldwide on November 15, 2019. It will be exclusive for the Nintendo Switch.
