New Pokémon! Get ‘em while they’re hot, dazed and have no idea how their entire being has been compressed to fit inside of a pokeball! A new trailer for Pokemon Sword and Shield has just dropped, and with it comes a ton of new info on the new pocket monsters that you can find inside the game. So enough bantering, on to the main event!

Alcremie

Alcremie
  • Category: Cream Pokémon
  • Type: Fairy
  • Height: 1′ 
  • Weight: 1.1 lbs. 
  • Ability: Sweet Veil

Alcremie can produce whipped cream, which becomes richer the happier Alcremie is feeling. Desserts made using this cream are invariably delicious, so many pastry chefs strive to have an Alcremie as their partner. When attacked by an opponent, Alcremie will throw sweet-scented cream to distract them or temporarily blind them, giving itself time to escape.

Gigantamax Alcremie

Gigantamax-Alcremie
  • Type: Fairy
  • Height: 98′5″+
  • Weight: Unknown
  • Ability: Sweet Veil

The cream pouring out of its body hardens when subjected to impacts—the stronger the impact, the harder it becomes—giving Alcremie an impressive resistance to physical attacks. Additionally, the giant “Berry” decorations on Alcremie’s body are as hard as diamonds, and it’s said that most attacks won’t even be able to leave a scratch. Alcremie will launch high-calorie cream missiles around itself to attack its opponents. Any Pokémon that touches this cream will be filled with energy and euphoria but at the same time will fall into a state of complete confusion. Fairy-type moves used by Gigantamax Alcremie will change to G-Max Finale, which will heal all Pokémon on Alcremie’s side while dealing damage to an opponent.

Yamper

Yamper-2
  • Category: Puppy Pokémon
  • Type: Electric
  • Height: 1′
  • Weight: 29.8 lbs.
  • Ability: Ball Fetch

Yamper tends to be drawn to things that are moving quickly. It can chase after people, Pokémon, or even vehicles. It has an organ in its body that generates electricity, and it’s activated when Yamper runs around. Yamper can’t store the electricity it generates, so it’s often seen running around with electric sparks crackling around it. Yamper’s Ability, Ball Fetch, is a new Ability that comes into play when the Trainer throws a Poké Ball at a wild Pokémon but fails to catch it. If Yamper isn’t holding an item, it will fetch the first Poké Ball that failed to catch the Pokémon, regardless of what type of Poké Ball it is.

Rolycoly

Rolycoly
  • Category: Coal Pokémon
  • Type: Rock
  • Height: 1′
  • Weight: 26.5 lbs.
  • Ability: Steam Engine / Heatproof
Rolycoly-2

Rolycoly’s red eye can illuminate dark areas, while it uses the lump of coal attached to its body like a wheel to move through coal mines and caves. It is able to travel smoothly even over rough terrain. Until about one hundred years ago, every household in the Galar region had a Rolycoly. The families would use the coal that dropped off its body for cooking and heating their homes. Rolycoly’s Ability, Steam Engine, is a new Ability that provides a Speed stat boost if it’s hit with a Fire- or Water-type move during battle.

Duraludon

Duraludon
  • Category: Alloy Pokémon
  • Type: Steel/Dragon
  • Height: 5′11″
  • Weight: 88.2 lbs.
  • Ability: Light Metal / Heavy Metal

Duraludon live in caves and mountainous areas. Their two arms have slightly different shapes, and they use them to grind down rock surfaces for food. Its body is composed of incredibly durable metal but is also surprisingly light, so Duraludon can move quite quickly despite its appearance. Its body is susceptible to corrosion, however, and is known to rust easily. They share their habitat with Tyranitar, so these two Pokémon are often seen battling each other in the mountains of the Galar region.
