Pokémon Sword & Shield Trailer Reveals Rivals & Galar Pokémon Forms

Marnie also has a legion of fans behind her as the new team for the players to fight: Team Yell is a bunch of rockers that are Marnie's biggest fans.

Galarian Weezing will be joined by Galarian Zigzagoon, a dark/normal dual-type that evolves into Galarian Linoone, just as you'd expect. We get to see a lot of new content at a very quick pace, but it seems like Pokemon Sword and Shield is coming into its own nicely and establishing a cool style for the new Galar region.

You can see the new rivals, new team, and Galarian Pokemon below in the trailer. It can change from Electric to Dark type with Full Belly Mode that shifts into Hangry Mode. They comprise Team Yell, which is basically a bunch of jerks.

Then there's the new "Poke Job" mechanic: "Trainers can check for available Poke Jobs at the Rotomi in Pokemon Centers and will be able send Pokemon directly from their Boxes to any job they accept. Trainers will find that certain Pokemon types are suited for specific jobs". In the Galar region, people and Pokemon work together to get jobs done. "The experience gained while on the job will help Pokemon grow, and Trainers may even receive rare items as rewards".

We're still three months out from the release date, and whether for the game or against, there's plenty of eyes locked onto whatever announcement we get for Sword and Shield. Finally, they'll earn their keep!
