A brand new Pokémon Sword and Shield trailer from the official Pokémon Youtube channel gave us a look at the new villain team, Team Yell, along with some new pokémon and forms exclusive to the Galar region.
Among these are the new Galarian Zigzagoon, Galarian Weezing and a Pikachu look-a-like named Morpeko. Morpeko seems to have two forms, a happy “full belly” form, and an angry “hangry” form. These forms suggest the pokémon changes shape depending on how much it eats. We also got our first look at the snide and cocky rival, Bede. This trailer not only showcasing our new rival but also showing some insight into what Team Yell is all about. Marnie, a trainer and the target of Team Yell’s fanaticism is also shown briefly sporting a gothic style outfit, with spiked boots to match. Team Yell also is wearing the same color scheme, it seems and will follow her wherever she may go.
Sword and Shield look to be introducing a lot of fun new forms, Pokémon and a zany as always villain team to follow in Team Skull’s footsteps from the previous entries, Sun and Moon. The new forms look as creative as always, and it will be interesting to see what other Pokémon will get a makeover and what exactly this design philosophy will entail.
