Pokemon Sword & Shield Revealed New Gigantamax Forms in the New Trailer!
Pokemon Sword & Shield
Nintendo™ Switch – US, EU & Japan
We’re less than a month away from the release of Game Freak‘s highly anticipated Pokemon Sword & Shield. And things get even more interesting with every trailer that is being released. Last time, Game Freak gave us a tour of Galar region’s first town revealing interesting places in the English-inspired town. Now, talking about Pokemon Sword & Shield’s gameplay, The Pokemon Company revealed a 2-minute information-packed trailer featuring new Gigantamax forms! In the video below, we see the Gigantamax forms of Pikachu, Eevee, Charizard, Butterfree, and Meowth.
Our adorable Pikachu has become extremely fat again in his Gigantamax form and has become extremely powerful as well to the extent that it can produce enough electricity to rival a power plant! However, using its power to distribute electricity to people’s homes is a bit challenging as it cannot stay in its Gigantamaxed form for a long period of time.
It is also worth noting that the electric-type attacks of Pikachu will be transformed into a G-Max Volt Crash when it’s in its Gigantamax form. Not only it will deal massive damage but also paralyzes all opponents!
Meanwhile, the Gigantamax form of Eevee makes it look extra fluffy and luxurious. Of course, those looks have their respective power that can lure enemies. Any of its opponents with the opposite gender that will be caught in its fur will become infatuated with Eevee and loses the determination to battle. Just like Pikachu, the normal-type attacks of Eevee will transform into G-Max Cuddle produce great damage to every opponent.
The flames inside Charizard’s body have become stronger in its Gigantamax form. But that’s not all. In addition to the fire that erupts from its tail, it can also now emit fire from its mouth and horns. Plus, it appears like the power of its flames grew even more when its Gigantamax form roars. Alongside the improvement of Charizard’s flames, new wings that are hotter than magma has also been formed. Charizard can fire them off to instantly burn its opponents. The normal fire-type attacks of Charizard will transform into G-Max Wildfire that doesn’t only deal damage to an opponent but will also proceed to deal damage to any Pokemon that isn’t Fire-type for four turns.
Gigantamax Butterfree’s most notable feature is its blinding wings that have evolved to massive proportions. Speaking of blinding, the light of its wings can cause paralysis, poisoning, or sleep to its opponents. Believe it or not, its gigantic wings can stir up wind which is powerful enough to lift a 10-ton truck, just by flapping them. Plus, it is worth noting that by just simply being near this Pokemon is extremely dangerous. Why? Well, its because the wind it carries can scatter poisonous scales around the battleground. The usual bug-type attacks of Butterfree will transform into G-Max Befuddle that can cause opponents to become poisoned, paralyzed, or fall asleep.
And the most powerful of all is Meowth. Meowth’s Gigantamax form can stretch its body to surprising lengths, and the coin on its head has become enormous. Mind you, that huge coin can now emit a torrent of Gigantamax power, filling the battleground with a mighty golden gleam. Plus, since Meowth loves shiny objects, it won’t be able to resist the urge to sharpen its claws on every skyscraper it sees that are lined with glass. This behavior can cause significant destruction such as wearing down the exterior walls and smashing windows.
Its normal-type attacks will be transformed into G-max Gold Rush that deals damage and scatters coins as well all throughout the area, providing Trainers a noteworthy in-game cash bonus after the fight.
