The Pokémon Company International has quite a bit of news to share with fans of the recently-released Sword and Shield, as we have more news on Gigantamax Snorlax, evolutions of Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobby, as well as the legendary Zacian and Zamazenta, all of which appear in the trailer below.
The huge variant of Snorlax comes with a tree sprouting on its belly, and this is an incredibly strong Dynamax Pokémon. It attacks by flailing its legs and arms, and normal-type attacks are turned into G-Max Replenish, restoring berries that its allies have eaten during the battle. These creatures will appear more often in Max Raid Battles as of December 4, running until January.
We also hear about Grookey's evolution, which has caused his stick to split in two as he becomes Thwackey, before turning into Rillaboom later on, using drums to make powerful sound waves.
Scorbunny, however, turns to Raboot, making it more effective against cold weather, before advancing to Cinderace, bringing moves with jumping prowess, explosive force, and lethal kicks.
Sobble also has its own evolutions, turning into Drizzile, with a long and mucus-covered tongue, before moving to Inteleon. The thin body of this Pokémon has a lot to hide, including a knife in its tail, as well as the ability to analyse the weaknesses of opponents.
We also get a better look at legendary Pokémon Zacian and Zamazenta, with the former using a sword in its mouth, while the latter fends off opponents with a golden shield, one that can't even be damaged by Dragon Pokémon.
Fans of the Pokémon Trading Card Game also have good news, as the Pokémon VMAX evolve from Pokémon V, as well as Dynamax and Gigantamax variants, are coming in, with the first Sword and Shield expansion landing on February 7.
