Latest Pokémon Sword and Shield Trailer Reveals New Villains and Monsters

Latest Pokémon Sword and Shield Trailer Reveals New Villains and Monsters

Another new Pokemon coming to Sword & Shield is Morpeko.

Likely inspired by Detective Pikachu, Pokemon that are put in the deposit box can actually take jobs, called Poke Jobs, where players can reap the rewards for this.

A new trailer has arrived for Pokemon Sword & Pokemon Shield with this one confirming Galarian forms of the pocket monsters as well as some new additions to the Pokedex. Bede is a smug-looking trainer with a pink overcoat. Fight Team Yell, who will be the evil team in these titles and are super-fans on one of your new rivals!

Different Pokemon forms are nothing new to the series, as various regions impact how these critters evolve.

Galarian Weezing is changed to have very big smokestacks coming out of its head in the shape of smokestacks and green smog floating on its face to give the appearance of facial hair. Galarian Weezing is a poison/fairy dual type that has the ability Levitate, along with a yet-unrevealed second ability.

Galarian Linoone has the same motif and types, making me think more of a London pickpocket. In addition to being able to store your extra Pokemon here, the Rotomi appears to serve a similar objective as job boards in other RPGs, letting you browse through a list of available Poke Jobs. Meanwhile, Galarian Zigzagoon and Linoone are Dark / Normal type and come equipped with the Abilities Gluttony and Pickup. The team also confirmed that regular versions of these Pokemon will still appear in-game, in case you were concerned your faves were canceled.

Pokemon Sword and Shield is set to debut as a Nintendo Switch exclusive on November 15.
