New Galar Research Has Been Shared

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Thursday!

New Pokemon have been discovered in the Galar region and… I have to say, after the Alola region, I’m not all that surprised at what they showed.

I’m only going to talk about the new Pokemon and not the people they announced mostly because I care more about the Pokemon than I do the people. I have more opinions on the Pokemon anyway.

New Pokemon

Morpeko

This may be the Pikachu-look-a-like for this region. It’s known as the two-sided Pokemon (though it’s a mouse, let’s be real) and it has two forms: Full Belly and Hangry. When Morpeko uses it’s energy and becomes hungry, it changes it’s colors and type from yellow-electric to purple-dark.

I think this is pretty cool and it will really add to the strategy of Pokemon battles since you’re working with two types, though not necessarily together. It reminded me of Wishiwashi from the Alola region, except WishiWashi’s type didn’t change at all. I’ll be curious to try out Morpeko on my team.

Galarian Forms

Okay. They did this for Alola. It confused me then and it confuses me now. I understand that the same Pokemon who live in different regions will change and adapt to the living conditions, but I’d prefer to have all brand-new Pokemon.

Weezing

Our Kanto friend, Weezing, has a new form and it reminded me of Exeggutor’s Alolan form with the long neck. Now Weezing seems to have a chimney on top its head resembling a top hat and what seems to look at like a mustache made out of smoke. I’m assuming they did this because of the response Exeggutor got. I’m not dissing the design at all, though it’s not something I would have chosen.

Weezing is now Poison/Fairy, which I feel like it should be Poison/Dark… I don’t know, I look at Weezng and see “pollution.” Also, Koffing wasn’t shown. I assume, as the pre-evolution of Weezing, Koffing will have a similar Galarian form, but who knows?

Zigagoon & Linoone

Two normal Pokemon from the Hoenn region are in the Galar region and they’re not just normal, but they’re also dark and look like they’ve been to one too many rock concerts. Like Weezing, I don’t mind the design, but I’ve always had a certain image of these two Pokemon in my head. Seeing the fangs and tongues hanging out, makes me question all that. These two just don’t seem like the same Pokemon I fell in love with while in the Hoenn region. I’ll still give them a try though, of course. Same with Weezing.

New Evolutions

I’ve been hoping to see some new evolutions of some Pokemon – namely Eevee. They announced one new evolution for Linoone, which is cool, but it’s only for the Galarian form.

Obstagoon

This looks like a cool Pokemon. Being Dark/Normal like its pre-evolutions, I think Obstgoon will be a force to be reckoned with. I’d love to see Obstagoon as though it was originally from the Hoenn region, mostly because I’m curious to see how different it would look.

Though, I understand why. The Pokedex states that due to survival and living conditions, Zigagoon and Linoone are having a life crisis, hence Obstgoon being born. Which makes me a bit sad because they have harsh living conditions while Weezing looks polluted… the Galar region looked so nice when they first showed it off.

Needless to say, I’m intrigued now more than ever.

First Thoughts On Some New Pokemon For Pokemon Sword & Shield

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!

I was a little late to the party, but I noticed some new Pokemon for Sword and Shield were flittering around the Internet the other day. All pictures of the Pokemon were taken from Serebii.net, which has more information on the Pokemon.

Yamper

Yamper | First Thoughts on New Pokemon in Pokemon Sword and Shield | Video Games | Nintendo | Pokemon | Nintendo Switch | DoublexJump.comI’m pleased to see there’s another puppy Pokemon through into the ever-growing Pokedex. The puppy Pokemon have always been adorable and they’ve done a nice job making sure the puppy Pokemon are various types. We’ve got fire, dark, normal, and now electric. (Though I guess you can say we technically already had that, but whatever.)

Yamper is an electrically charged pup who doesn’t know what to do with all its electricity, so he runs around rampant and is constantly energized. I find that utterly adorable and I can’t want to see this Pokemon in action both in the game and in the anime.

I always try to get an electric type Pokemon on my team the first time I play and Yamper will definitely be one I catch. I’m looking forward to seeing what its evolutions will be – assuming he has them, but I think he’ll have one or two.

Alcremie

Alcremie | First Thoughts on New Pokemon in Pokemon Sword and Shield | Video Games | Nintendo | Pokemon | Nintendo Switch | DoublexJump.comThe cream Pokemon, Alcremie. Before I knew anything about it, not even its name, I immediately thought of strawberry shortcake. I assume that’s where the designer was going with this design. I think this Pokemon is absolutely adorable and, it being a fairy type, I know it’s going to be obnoxiously strong. I was iffy on fairy types when they were first introduced but the type has grown on me and I’m eager to see what Alcremie will be able to do.

I remember past “food” Pokemon were crapped on because no one liked Pokemon being made from inanimate objects – even though some of those Pokemon were absolutely the best. Everyone seems to adore Alcremie though, so… I guess we won’t hear complaints about that, huh? At least, not about this particular Pokemon.

Rolycoly

Rolycoly | First Thoughts on New Pokemon in Pokemon Sword and Shield | Video Games | Nintendo | Pokemon | Nintendo Switch | DoublexJump.comOur new rock type is known as the coal Pokemon, Rolycoly. It reminds me of Roggenrola and I’m pleased to see one of its abilities is not sturdy. (Because, really, sturdy is only a good ability if the Pokemon is on your side.) He looks like a puff cloud though only… not fluffy. I feel like he would be able to float and hover around, though the Pokedex says it rolls around with ease.

Coal drops from Rolycoly’s body and people in the Galar region use it to heat up their homes. I always enjoy it when a Pokemon has an every-day function like that in addition to their battling. I wonder if he’ll get the chance to learn any fire moves?

Duraludon

Duraludon | First Thoughts on New Pokemon in Pokemon Sword and Shield | Video Games | Nintendo | Pokemon | Nintendo Switch | DoublexJump.comThe alloy Pokemon, a steel and dragon type – Duraludon. This guy, even though he only weighs about 88-lbs, is going to be a beast. Although, according to his Pokedex entry, he seems as though he’s a gentle soul (despite battling with Tyranitar a lot). I love the look of him though. He’s so shiny and his arms, which is used to crush rock, are a cool design. I’m eager to see this guy in battle… on my side, of course.
