Gigantamaxing Featured In New Pokemon Sword and Shield Trailer
A brand new trailer has been shared by The Pokemon Company for Pokemon Sword and Shield. The trailer features some of the new Pokemon that are available in the Galar Region. Also, what we will see in the trailer is the “ Gigantamaxing” mechanic.
There had been four new Pokemon revealed although one of them, which is Yamper, had already been revealed at E3 previously. Check them out below, as well as the official descriptions that they have.
ALCREMIE (Fairy) — Alcremie can produce whipped cream, which becomes richer the happier Alcremie is feeling. Desserts made using this cream are invariably delicious, so many pastry chefs strive to have an Alcremie as their partner.
YAMPER (Electric) — Yamper has a tendency to be drawn to things that are moving quickly. It can chase after people and Pokémon or even go charging at vehicles!
ROLYCOLY (Rock) — Its red eye can illuminate dark areas, while it uses the lump of coal attached to its body like a wheel to move through coal mines and caves. It seems to be able to travel smoothly even over rough terrain.
DURALUDON (Steel/Dragon) — The metal composing its body is incredibly durable but also surprisingly light. It only weighs about 88 lbs. in total. Thanks to this, Duraludon can move quite quickly in spite of its appearance. Its body is weak to corrosion, however, and is known to rust easily.
Get to watch all four new Pokemon below:
The Gigantamaxing mechanic is like the Dynamaxing mechanic but is much bigger. The mechanic will transform the Pokemon into a giant version of itself as well as change its appearance. When at this state, the Pokemon has some powerful moves called the G-Max moves. The moves actually require the Gigantamaxing and cannot be done with just the regular Dynamax Pokemon.
What we can also see in the trailer is that some Gym leaders will actually be exclusive to each version. The sword will feature Bea, the Fighting-type specialist and shield will challenge Allister the Ghost-type expert.
Pokemon Sword and Shield is set to launch on November 15 for the Nintendo Switch only.
