Earlier yesterday The Official Pokémon Youtube Channel showcase new footage featuring some rather unusual new Pokémon coming to Pokémon Sword & Shield exclusive to the Nintendo Switch. The first Pokémon introduced is called Alcremie, a fairy type Pokémon with the ability of “Sweet Veil.” And yes, this Pokémon highly resembles strawberry ice cream. As the footage continues, we see Yamper an electric dog-like Pokémon that we saw in earlier footage.
Also, in the footage, we see the introduction of new Gym leaders, and it looks like Game Freak has decided that depending on what game you choose, will determine the Gym Leaders you face! The video features other new characters, more about the Galar Pokémon League, & a new feature called “Gigantamaxing”. If you would like to see more, feel free to look at the video below and tell us what you think!
Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will be officially coming exclusively to the Nintendo Switch November 15, 2019.
