New Pokémon’s types and abilities
Alcreamie is a fairy type with the ability sweet veil. Sweet veil prevents your Pokémon from falling asleep.
Roly Coly is a rock type with the ability steam engine or heatproof. Steam engine is a brand new ability unique to Roly Coly and when a Pokémon with this ability is hit with a fire or water move, its speed drastically rises! Heatproof halves the damage of fire type moves.
Duraludon is a steel/dragon type Pokémon with either light metal or heavy metal as its ability. Light metal halves the Pokémon’s weight while heavy metal doubles it.
Yamper is an electric type Pokémon with the ability ball fetch. A Pokémon with this ability will collect the first Pokéball that fails to catch the Pokémon if they are not holding anything.
A new feature similar to Dynamax but only some Pokémon are capable of Gigantamaxing. Like Dynamaxing, Gigantamaxing increases the size of the Pokémon as well as their power level. Gigantamaxed Pokémon change in appearance making them have unique sprite models compared to those Pokémon that are unable to Gigantamax. It also enables them to use unique attacks called G-Max moves.
