New discoveries from Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield about the Galar Region! A new Team called Team Yell, new Rivals’ Bede and Marnie, and new Galarian Pokémon! The Galarian Pokémon revealed are different versions of Pokémon we have seen before, a Galarian Weezing, Galarian Zigzagoon, and Galarian Linoone. Here is a Video to get get a glimpse of the new content for Pokémon Sword and Shield coming out on November 15, 2019.
New Rivals’ Bede and Marnie
New Rivals that are aiming to becoming Champion of the Galar Region. Marnie has highly enthusiastic fans that want her to become the Champion and have been known to cause disruption for other trainers aiming to challenge the Galar Region Champion as well. It seems as the main character of the story, we can expect to encounter Team Yell a number of times. Not much is revealed about Bede, but he does have a sinister air about him.
Galar Region Pokémon
With the reveal of some new Galarian Pokémon, it has been noted that due to the unique environment of the Galar Region, some unseen evolutions have developed. The Galarian Linoone evolves into Obstagoon which is a Dark and normal type. The previous forms or Zigzagoon and Linoone are normal type but the Galarian forms are dark/normal. The Zigzagoon family as well as the Galarian Weezing have typing that differs from the other regions. This could likely be the same for other Galar region Pokémon as well.
In addition to the new regional changes to some Pokémon there is a new, form-changing Pokémon that was revealed, Morpeko. Morpeko has an ability that changes its form mid-battle. Not only does its appearance change, one of its signature moves changes typing depending on the form it is in!
Pokémon and people have always been great companions. In the Galar region, its normal for corporations and other entities to request help from Pokémon, these are known as PokéJobs. It seems you can send Pokémon to do various different Jobs that may be available and the Pokémon sent will be able to grow from the experience! Because of the variety of different Pokémon, different Pokémon may be more suitable for different jobs as well. There also may be other rewards that come with completing the jobs as well! Let’s continue the co-existing life-style with people and Pokémon in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield!
