As we are in the run up to the release of the next generation of Pokémon games Sword and Shield it’s always custom that the Pokémon Company gives us segments of information. As with previous games, the short video released has given us an insight into new Pokémon, gym leaders and new styles of battle. The sad thing to see is that there is still no mention of the National Dex being added which has left many fans disheartened. Read below to see who and what is coming to gen 8.
Puppy Pokémon, Type: Electric, Abilities: Ball Fetch
Cream Pokémon, Type: Fairy, Abilities: Sweet Veil
Coal Pokémon, Type: Rock, Abilities: Steam Engine or Heatproof
Alloy Pokémon, Type: Steel/Dragon, Abilities: Light Metal or Heavy Metal
