There's also a new Dynamaxing power called Gigantamaxing coming, which will alter a Pokemon's physical appearance as well as their size.
In addition to talking about Gigantamaxing, The Pokemon Company also revealed some new Pokemon you can expect to see in Sword and Shield later this fall. Four pseudo-legendary lines have been confirmed to be version exclusives; the Dieno and Jangmo-O lines will be exclusive to Sword, while Larvitar and Goomy are exclusive to Shield. But now, there's another element to consider: what gym leaders you want to fight. It also shows off Chairman Rose and his secretary Oleana.
Certain trailers will be exclusive to Pokemon Sword, whereas others can only be found in Pokemon Shield.
Pokemon Sword and Shield is launching on the Nintendo Switch on November 15. The games will be compatible with the upcoming Pokemon Home service, allowing you to bring over some of your old monsters.
If you thought Pokemon was weird already, just wait.
Pokemon Sword and Shield is set to be the next big Pokemon games (despite the controversy over not being able to complete the Pokedex) on the Nintendo Switch. That decision has been so controversial that series producer, Junichi Masuda, issued a statement addressing the drama.
The Japanese YouTube channel has a separate video showing off much of the same information and gym leaders, but there's also more footage of what Galar looks like, that adorable corgi Pokemon, and a few more environments.
