New Pokémon Sword And Pokémon Shield Trailer Introduces Team Yell, Galarian Forms

Nintendo told their fans to get ready for an update on August 7 at 9:00 AM EST and boy was it worth checking out.

First off, we were introduced to Galarian Forms of existing Pokémon, which if you played Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, are similar to the Alolan evolutions. The trailer does a stellar job in its short run time and introduces a few new things as well, namely the Galarian Weezing, Galarian Zigzagoon, and the form changing Pokémon reminiscent of Pikachu. Morpeko has it’s normal “full belly mode,” and the “hangry mode,” which is me at times.


We met Bede, a new trainer and we met Marnie. Marnie is one to keep an eye on as the new villans found in Galar seem to be a Marnie fan club, calling themselves Team Yell.Marnie

Lastly, the Pokéjob mechanic is something new. “Trainers check for available Pokéjobs at the Rotomi in Pokémon Centers and send Pokémon directly from their Boxes to any job they accept. Trainers will find that certain Pokémon types are suited for specific jobs. The experience gained while on the job will help Pokémon grow, and Trainers may even receive rare items as rewards.”
