Pokémon Sword & Shield
The latest news for Pokémon Sword & Shield has been released. We're currently compiling all details so keep checking back.
This trailer showcases some new Pokémon as well as Gigamax variants of the Pokémon including Gigantamax Drednaw and Corviknight
Duraludon is a Steel & Dragon-type Pokémon with the abilities Light Metal & Heavy Metal
Alcremie is a Fairy-type Pokémon with the ability Sweet Veil. It has a Gigantamax Form
Rolycoly is a Rock-type Pokémon with the abilities Steam Engine and heatproof. Steam Engine boosts Speed drastically if the Pokémon is hit by a Fire or Water-type move
Gigantamax is a new feature which boosts power upon Dynamaxing and changes a Pokémon's form. Each Gigantamax has a G-Max Move
Gigantamax Drednaw is 78'
As a special bonus for purchasing the Dual Pack SteelBook® Edition, Trainers will receive two codes (one per game) that will reward them with special items known as Dynamax Crystals. By using the Dynamax Crystals in the Wild Area, Trainers will be able to face Dynamax Larvitar and Dynamax Jangmo-o, Pokémon that are normally encountered later in the game, in special Max Raid Battles. Larvitar won’t appear in Pokémon Sword and Jangmo-o won’t appear in Pokémon Shield during normal gameplay, but players will be able to catch them in either version by using these Dynamax Crystals.
The game has Version exclusive Gym Leaders. In Sword you face the Fighting-type Bea while in Shield you face the Ghost-type Allister. Deino and Jangmo-o are exclusive to Sword and Larvitar & Goomy are exclusive to Shield
