During today’s Nintendo Direct, The Pokemon Company revealed two new brand new Pokemon for Pokemon Sword & Shield.
The first is Polteageist, a Ghost-type haunted teapot Pokemon whose body is comprised entirely out of tea. It also has the ability Weak Armor, which reduces its defenses but raises its speed when hit. Check out how it looks below along with more details:
Black Tea Pokémon
- Black tea with a distinct aroma and flavor
Polteageist’s body is made from black tea and is said to have a very distinct aroma and flavor. It will only allow a Trainer it trusts to sample its tea. However, drinking too much can lead to indigestion or an upset stomach, so be careful!
- Pests for hotels and restaurants
Many Polteageist make their homes inside hotels and restaurants, disguising themselves and hiding among the tableware. They can pour their power into leftover tea and create even more of their kind, so they’re often treated as pests
The second new Pokemon is Cramorant, a Flying/Water type bird Pokemon with a huge appetite. Its special ability is Gulp Missile: Whenever Cramorant uses Surf it will rise up with a fish caught in its mouth. The next time it is hit with a move, the fish will come flying out and damage the opponent. Check out how it looks below along with more details:
- A voracious eater—Cramorant is insatiable
When it comes to food, it will try to swallow anything it can fit in its mouth. Sometimes it will swallow things that aren’t its intended prey, spitting them out in a hurry once it realizes its mistake.
- It never forgets its bond with its Trainer
Cramorant can be forgetful, but it will never forget a Trainer it grows to trust. However, it seems that even Trainers will face fierce attacks from their Cramorant if they try to steal its food.
- Cramorant’s Ability, Gulp Missile
Cramorant’s Ability, Gulp Missile, is a new Ability introduced in these titles, and it can be triggered during battles. After Cramorant uses Surf or Dive, it will return with a catch in its mouth. If it takes damage while in this state, Cramorant will retaliate by spitting out its catch at the attacker!
