    Pokémon dropped a new video with some new stuff:
    -Regional variants are back, including Galarian Weezing (Poison/Fairy), Zigzagoon, and Linoone. In addition, Galarian Linoone has an evolution called Obstagoon (Dark/Normal).
    -The Pikachu clone is Morpeka (Electric/Dark) and has 2 forms: full belly and hangry. Its signature move, Aura Wheel, changes types depending on its form: Electric for full belly, Dark for hangry.
    -2 new rivals, Bede and Marnie.
    -The evil team is Team Yell.
    Feel free to discuss!

    I'm not gonna lie - that Weezing form DID make me smile a little. I expect many good British memes to come from this. Don't let me down, internet.

    But honestly, they've not shown anything here that really justifies or makes up for all the cut content and poor choices made, and I didn't expect them to. These games just continue to disappoint - even with no expectations! - and it all feels distinctly low budget and rushed, which is not what Pokémon deserves, not what Nintendo is about, and not what we should be seeing from the highest grossing media franchise in existence.

    I am very eager to get these games out the way so that we can move on to the next titles, because I get the feeling those will be to these games as Black and White 2 were to the originals - better in every conceivable fashion. Although when comparing USUM to SM, maybe that is a tad optimistic.

    Also, how they could make a team MORE trashy than Team Skull baffles the mind...

    I have mixed emotions about the new info, I think the new forms look fun and i'm glad they're bringing in non kanto Pokémon, but oh man do I hate team yell. I feel like its just a worse version of team skull, and I swear to god if they just do the same thing they did in SM where theres a bigger badder evil team I will be so angry. It was fine there, but doesn't need to be done again. I'm still excited for SwSh, but that excitement is dwindling...

    I love this trailer so much.

    - Galarian forms are such a big yes to me. I thought they wouldn't return because of a big theory I had with Alolan forms; I thought they were added only to add type diversity to LGPE. But I'm so happy to be wrong there! I'm not a huge fan of Galarian Weezing's color scheme but I love the design, and the fact that they mixed the punk stuff with european badgers (I think) to make Galarian Zigzagoon and Linoone is awesome.

    - Cross-gen evolutions are back??? YES. I love both regional forms and cross-gen evos because they both take new spins on older Pokémon without being arguably kinda broken like Mega Evolution. The one they showcased today is one that I'm not a huge fan of, but the fact that it exists just makes me happy.

    - New rivals, I don't care.

    - New Pikaclone confirmed and I honestly don't care about this either. I hate that it's called "hangry" for no reason other than "haha funny relatable word" if it switches off upon using that move or every other turn like people are saying. Its design is cute enough but it's a pikaclone so it's probably not gonna be the best.

    - Duosion is confirmed, I have to buy this game now.

    - Team Yell is literally a toxic fanbase and, in times like this where there are a lot of people complaining about the National Dex, it's just hilarious to see. Like Obstagoon, design-wise they're not very good, but I love them concept-wise.

    Overall very happy with what all was shown. Me asking for anything else would seem greedy, we got a good amount of knowledge today that makes me excited to see what else will be revealed in the future.

    Galarian forms are hype as heck, and I hope to see more of them in future updates! Glad to see some Hoenn mons getting the love too (I'm a Gen 3 boi all the way XD) Interesting to see Linoone evolves in the Galar region! :O

    Also, Morpeko is hilarious. IT'S HANGRY TIME.

    I wanted Weezing's type to be poison/steel with levitate but I like it's typing.
    I WANT a galar zigzagoon. When I saw that linoone kept the same abilities I wasn't too sure if it would remain in my team. Then I saw it's evolution and now I might keep it in my team.
    I love the pikachu clone.

    But the most important part is

    Ok so my thoughts:
    -I’m not really a fan of regional variants, and I wasn’t excited to see them return. I would’ve preferred if regional variants would stay in Alola (like the trials). However, it’s good to see them include not-Kanto Pokémon for once.
    -I don’t mind Galarian Weezing but why is it part fairy type.
    -Galarian Zigzagoon line is pretty cool. I’m starting to warm up to Obstagoon. (Also it’s nice to see evolutions of old Pokémon become a thing again)
    -Morpeko is ok, definitely not my favorite pika clone but not my least favorite. Also why, why does it have a hangry form? Why did that specific word have to be used? Never in a million years would I have expected (or wanted) to see the word “hangry” used in Pokémon.
    -Rivals are ok. I was right about there being multiple rivals. Marnie is basically female Gladion
    -Team Yell is also ok. But I like their pink horn things.
    -Idea: what if Marnie was the evil team leader (or one of the admins)? Because think about it- why would the team yell grunts be huge fans of someone other than the leader (or admins)? Why would they have posters of her? (That’s actually really creepy.) And it would be cool to have the evil team leader as one of your rivals. That’s probably not happening, but it’s just a thought.

    Calling it now: Marnie is the Team Yell boss.

    If it turns out that she is the boss, would that make her the first ever female evil team boss?

    I think she would be the second, since there’s Lusamine.

    I hope these two rivals are better than those from previous games, like I don't expect a rival like Blue but but I'll take anything but those friend buddy buddy rivals, they're getting tiresome.

    I think is neat the previous mons have a chance at a new evolution, just hope they won't go too overboard with it.

    - I’m really happy to see regional variants come back! The fact they’re giving forgotten Pokémon like the Zigzagoon line some love is refreshing.
    -Morpeka is really cute, but I doubt I’ll use it since Pikachu clones are almost always weak.
    - Neither of the rivals particularly interest me. It is cool to see another smug rival for once though.
    - Not a fan of Team Yell. It’s like they sucked the life out of Team Skull and left nothing except generic thugs. Hopefully the admins and leader are more interesting.

    As rushed as Sword and Shield look, I’m still optimistic they’ll be fun in their own right.

    I dunno how to feel about it, I like Marnie and the ziggy line, everything else was just ok.
    Don't think Team Yell is the real "Evil Team" either, feels like another Team Skull.

    So the trailer wasn't as disappointing as I expected, but I wasn't blown away by the reveals. Half of the stuff was cool, half I was not keen on

    The Good
    - Galarian Weezing is honestly amazing. I love the inspiration behind it's design.
    - Galarian Zigzagoon looks cool. Linoone is decent too. Still on the fence about Obstagoon. On one hand I like it because of it's rockstar motif, but on the other hand its design feels kinda... off.
    - Bede is one if the cooler character designs we've gotten so far.

    The Bad
    - The Pikaclone is boring. I feel that way about most pikaclones though.
    - Team Yell looks like it might be my least favorite 'evil' team. Good job team flare your not my most disliked anymore!
    - Graphics still look flat and lackluster.
    - Still no national dex.

    I'm not sure Lusamine is technically an evil team boss--I've always believed the Aether Foundation started as a good organization, and was manipulated to evil, in spite of themselves.

    Galarian forms: Yes! I love the concept of regional variants and I'm glad it wasn't just a one-off gimmick. Plus there doing more with it by having non-gen 1 Pokémon get Galar forms and having Galar form-exclusive evolutions? I thought it would be hard to get me more hyped for these games, but I was wrong.
    Morpeka: This is both dumb and hilarious. I definitely won't be using one, but it fills me with joy to know that this is going to be a thing.
    New rivals: Bede looks kind of plane and uninteresting to me, but it looks like he's going to be a snooty jerk or something, which I'm looking forward to. Marnie looks great and I'm looking forward to seeing what here deal is.
    Team Yell: I love the concept but I hate the name and I'm not a fan of the designs. It will be interesting to see what they do with them. I have a feeling that they won't be the only evil team, but I don't think that they'll have any connection to the other team if there is one.

    I think the only problem that I have is that Team Yell just seems too much like Team Skull, in design, and in behavior (more of a mild annoyance than any real threat). I'm kinda hoping that they're not actually the evil bad guys of the games, because that would actually be really disappointing (though it would be interesting if our rival was the big bad of the games).
    I love Galarian forms. Wheezing's design just makes me smile. It looks silly, but not in a stupid kind of way, and I love the reference to the stereotypical posh british thing, complete with a top hat and mustache, and I absolutely love how it seems to be referencing the smoggy industrialness of old London.
    Galarian Zigzagoon/Linoone look great, and I really like the added evolution (I'll probably be using it in my playthrough).
    What really excites me though is Bede. That smug, condescending look is reminiscent of the jerk rivals in the early games. Are they finally going to be bringing back a jerk rival? I'm tired of all of the buddy-buddy rivals going on. If they're going to be giving us multiple rivals, then I want them to at least give us multiple personalities to play off of.

    I like that they're doing more with the regional variants. It allows for a fresh take on old Pokémon, which so far has paid off. The Galarian Weezing is great and the Galarian Zigzagoon family does actually look kinda cool.
    I actually like the new pikaclone in the form of Morpeka. It probably won't be that great, but the idea is neat.
    Team Yell just reminds me of the overly excited football fans I'd see in Seattle. But who knows, maybe they'll surprise us. And I like Marnie a lot. I wonder what her agenda with Team Yell is.
    Speaking of Marnie, I'm glad the rivals are going to be more varied this time around. We have a friendly rival with Hop, and more jerk rivals with Bede and Marnie. It seems like they're implying Bede has his own agenda, so we'll see how that plays out.

    Overall everything looks very promising.
