Gigantamaxing revealed alongside new Trainers and Pokémon

It turns out this game will also have version exclusive Gym Leaders.

A new trailer has revealed a host of new Pokémon, new characters, and a variant to Dynamaxing – Gigantamaxing.

The new Pokémon revealed are Alcremie (Fairy-type), Rolycoly (Rock-type), and Duraludon (Steel/Dragon-type). Yamper has also been officially announced; it was only shown without additional fanfare as part of the playable demo at E3.

A new Ability, Steam Engine, is confirmed to be an Ability for Rolycoly. A Pokémon with this Ability will get a Speed stat boost if it’s hit with a Fire- or Water-type move during battle.

New characters have also been confirmed: Chairman Rose and his assistant Oleana. They seem to have a role in the Galar region’s Gym and Champion circuit. There are also two new (version exclusive!) Gym Leaders, Bea (Sword version; a Fighting-type Gym Leader) and Allister (Shield version; Ghost-type).

Lastly, Gigantamaxing is a new feature in addition to Dynamaxing. It changes the size and appearance of a Pokémon, but can only be done for specific specimens of certain Pokémon species. Thus far we know of Gigantamaxed forms for Alcremie, Corviknight, and Drednaw.

What do you think of the new trailer and what it has given us?
