A WILD NEW TEAM APPEARED
NEW TRAILER FOR POKEMON SWORD AND SHIELD DROPS
Amidst all the “National Dex” conspiracy theories Game Freak is still trying to finish the polish on the eighth generation of Pokemon games. With the games ready to drop this November we got a new trailer revealing new Pokemon, rivals and the newest villainous team.
The newest evil team to destroy is Team Yell. Members of Team Yell are more like members of Team Skull than any other team in the franchise. They look like members of the Insane Clown Posse and are hardcore dedicated followers of one your rivals named Marnie.
Besides Marnie, you’ll have to contend with Bede, a boy who got his endorsement from Chairman Rose and just looks like he’s up to something.
Now let’s get to the actual Pokemon. Marnie’s main Pokemon is the Galar region’s Pikachu clone Morpeko. It starts off as an Electric type but can change it’s typing to Dark thanks to the Ability Hunger Switch. Basically, this Pokemon’s gimmick is that it’s always hungry. If it’s full then it is an Electric type. When it becomes hungry for a long time then it becomes a Dark type. It’s signature move Aura Wheel will also change type as well.

Don’t let it get hungry. (Dark type)
Other new Pokemon include Galarian forms of pre-existing Pokemon like Weezing and the Zigzagoon line. Team Yell is fond of the new Zigzagoon since it is now a Dark and Normal type. Plus, Linoone gains an evolution only in Galar.
Galarian Linoone will not only evolve into Obstagoon but Obstagoon gains a new move called Obstruct. What it does exactly is still unknown.
The other new regional form revealed was Weezing, who is now a Poison and Fairy type. It will retain the Levitate Ability but it also has a new secret second Ability.
These Pokemon join the previously announced Galar Dex Pokemon of Alcremie, Rolycoly and Duraludon.
Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield will drop November 15th.
