The hype for Pokémon Sword and Shield is at its peak with the games releasing on Nov. 15. The final Pokémon trailer, released this morning, gives a sanctioned glimpse for what trainers expect when they release.
? Our Galar Research is complete, Trainers! ? Take a look back at what we’ve uncovered, then get ready to make new friends, face new challengers, and catch new Pokémon! Let us know in the comments below what you’re most excited to explore in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.
The most interesting bit of the nearly 90-second-long trailer teases two new, but familiar, Pokémon. We get a glimpse of a familiar Pokémon, Mr. Mime, in its new Galarian form, called Mr. Rime at 10 seconds. It is a psychic and ice-type Pokémon with a dapper appearance.
Then, at 17 seconds in, we see a new Pokémon named Runerigus. It’s a ghost and ground-type and is the Galarian form of Cofagrigus. We do not if these two are exclusive to the different versions.
The rest of the trailer showcases the gym leaders, new gameplay features, a variety of character customizations, and the Dynamax forms of Pokémon present in the Galar region. Today’s new Japanese trailer, on the other hand, is a bit longer, and it showcases more clips of what the games have to offer. It also features preorder bonuses, such as obtaining 12 Quick Balls, a chance to get a Gigantamax Meowth, and Gigantamax versions of Pikachu and Eevee, if you have to save data for Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and/or Eevee.
