New Sword/Shield trailer: Galarian forms and new rivals

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - New Sword/Shield trailer: Galarian forms and new rivals

- Zigzagoon looks okay.
- Linoone looks terrible. I guess it's supposed to be a badger, but why can't it keep its tongue in its mouth?? And the mean look in general doesn't fit Linoone at all. This looks less like an actual linoone than Morpeko looks like Pikachu. Btw, a fun fact about badgers in the UK: the Brits love gassing them.
- Obstagoon looks weird and makes no sense as a Linoons evolution.
- Morpeko is by far the least interesting or original electric rodent ever. That's probably the reason why they gave it another form as well.
- Galar Weezing is alright.
- Rivals seem okay, but the "evil" team is just ridiculous.

Because

is at least inspired by the band Kiss's makeup, who are well known for their front man Gene Simmons Tongue.

As for Obsteegoon not looking right as their Evolution....

It does if you get the reference look correct.

Yikes, can't say I'm a fan of how pop culture-y/silly a lot of these designs look ("hangry mode", wtf GF???) , but with that said I am thrilled it seems we will indeed be getting a new batch of evos for previous mons. After 3 gens in a row without any, I'm definitely ready. Several gen 5-7 ones could definitely use a good new evo, and still holding out hope for an awesome Dunsparce one and that GF will just drop all the rest of the Eeeveeloutions one of these gens, because it really makes zero sense for it not to be able to evolve into every type. 



The human characters look boring IMO, Rival is just meh, "Team Yell" looks like a joke and I mean that in a "you're so annoying this game would benefit from you not being in it" kinda way. Tho nothing is gonna look as ridiculous as Leon.
I like the new Weezing and I really liked the new Zigzagoon line, but everything about Morpeko is just... Not for me I guess.

It was just an okay announcement, but I feel they should've given away more, when that happens maybe I'll have more excitement for this game.



This trailer was really good. The evil team being an annoying stan fanbase is the best thing ever. Really can’t wait for this game. I hope the next trailers show the second stage evolutions



Looks cool to me. Granted it will be my first Pokemon.

Apparently KISS frontman Gene Simmons is thrilled

"Pokémon has been a part of our household for decades, ever since our kids first discovered them, and to see Pokémon pay homage to KISS, is flattering."

That's awesome ! Would be cool if there was a rocker trainer in the game who had all 3 Mon maybe with a kiss track as the battle theme ! Would never happen... but a man can dream!

Class that Gene's kids have good taste.

Maybe a Cyprus Hill song that could be the backing track to their battle theme? each time you take a hit from them
