Pokémon Sword and Shield trailer shows off new Pokémon, Gigantamaxing
A trailer for Pokémon Sword and Pokemon Shield introduces us to a selection of new Pokémon and the Gigantamax phenomenon.
Gigantamaxing is similar to the previously unveiled Dynamaxing mechanic and allows Pokémon to grow in size. However, Gigantamaxing Pokémon also change their appearance and gain access to a unique G-Max move. Only certain species of Pokémon can Gigantamax, according to The Pokémon Company. The trailer below introduces us to two such Pokémon: Drednaw and Corviknight.
The trailer also unveils a number of new Pokémon who appear in the Galar region, including the Fairy-type Pokémon Alcremie, the Electric-type Yamper, the Rock-type Rolycoly, and the Steel/Dragon-type Duraludon.
Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield launch November 15th for Nintendo Switch.
