We've just been treated to a lovely dollop of new information on Pokémon Sword and Shield - what do you mean 'you haven't seen it'? Go and watch it now!

The very end of the new trailer was dedicated to the game's antagonists, Team Yell. Just like Team Rocket, Team Magma/Aqua, Team Galactic, and others before them, Team Yell look set to play an important role in your journey, but they sound like they'll be quite the nuisance.

An official description of the team has now been shared by The Pokémon Company. As you can see, Team Yell will attempt to ruin your battles, ruin your attempts at taking on Gyms, and even break down the region's transportation. They sound like a complete nightmare, but it also sounds like it'll be all the more fun to beat them.

Team Yell is a group of troublemakers who seem to appear wherever the Gym Challenge takes you and who attempt to get in your way at every opportunity.

They want nothing more than for Marnie to become Champion, and they all try to obstruct other challengers in all sorts of ways. They will take over hotel lobbies, prevent other challengers from accessing transportation, and even shout and distract opponents during battle. Whenever Marnie battles, it seems these Team Yell Grunts are quick to appear, showing their support with Marnie-print towels and also horns.

So, a loud, super-dedicated fanbase that wants nothing more than to butt in, cause mayhem, and have their voices heard at any given opportunity? We wonder where the inspiration for that came from?
