Pokémon Sword & Shield: 10 Galarian Forms We Need To See

Pokémon Sword & Shield: 10 Galarian Forms We Need To See

Alongside new monsters - including new Pikachu-adjacent creatures - there's a quick look at some of the game's rivals and villains.

The launch of the Pokemon Sword and Shield will be on November 15.

After the form of Alola seen in Pokemon Sole and Luna, therefore, the Game Freak has chose to continue to propose the regional forms, introducing in the case of Pokemon Sword and Shield the forms of Galar. Which, frankly, feels like a personal attack on all of our hungry mood swings, but it's cute so we'll let it slide. In its Galarian form, green smog creates a moustache and beard to its face. Again, it is a Dark/Normal Type rather than just being Normal as it is in other regions. Linoone Galar form changes its type from Normal to Dark. In fairness, Galar Weezing was predicted in an even earlier list, and that turned out to be one of the two Galarians revealed.

Nintendo has dropped a new trailer for Pokémon Sword and Shield, revealing brand new Pokémon, evolutions, new Galarian forms and a new antagonistic group, Team Yell.

Just like the Galarian Form of Zigzagoon, the Galarian Linoone is black and white, too. Those were called Alolan Forms, so the Pokemon who are undergoing the same treatment in Pokemon Sword and Shield will appropriately be known as Galarian Forms. Again, this is a guide that we'll be updating whenever Nintendo announces any Galar Forms or new Pokemon with multiple Forms that you can make use of.

- Morpeko has "Full Belly Mode" and "Hangry Mode", each of which will change the type of its signature move, Aura Wheel. We were also introduced to this game's Rocket-like faction, Team Yell - who seem to be pink-painted and punky fans of Marnie.
