As promised just a couple of days ago, new information has been released concerning the upcoming Pokémon Sword and Shield for Nintendo Switch.

You can see the announcements for yourself in the video above. Among them are new Galarian forms of fan-favourite monsters, a new, form-changing Pokémon, new rivals, and an introduction to the game's rival team, Team Yell.

Let's take a closer look.

Galarian Forms

You can get a closer look at the Galarian forms (which appear to be just like Pokémon Sun and Moon's Alolan forms) below. Weezing, Zigzagoon and Linoone were all shown off, as well as a brand new evolution for the family called Obstagoon. As it happens, Obstagoon can only evolve from a Galarian Linoone.

Morpeko - the Form-Changing Pokémon

The form-changing Pokémon is called Morpeko. Amazingly, it has a Full Belly Mode and a Hangry Mode. Wow.

New Rivals - Bede and Marnie

Bede and Marnie have appeared as new rivals. Both were only shown for the briefest of moments, so we're sure there's plenty still to learn about each of them.

Team Yell

It would appear that the new rival team on the block is Team Yell. Described as being Marnie's wild fans, Team Yell appears to use the new Galarian Pokémon in battle. We're really digging the goth-punk vibes going on here, even if they do sound like a total nightmare.
