During today’s video presentation, The Pokemon Company finally revealed the seemingly nefarious villains of Pokemon Sword and Shield!
In particular, we now know that Team Yell operates in the Galar region. They’re not your typical crooks like Team Rocket, however – as they’re super fans of the player’s rival Marnie! They mainly disrupt and block other Gym Challengers to give Marnie an unfair advantage – although it seems like Marnie may not always been that glad about the attention…
Check out more details about them below, from their official profiles:
MEET TEAM YELL
Team Yell is a group of troublemakers who seem to appear wherever the Gym Challenge takes you and who attempt to get in your way at every opportunity.
They want nothing more than for Marnie to become Champion, and they all try to obstruct other challengers in all sorts of ways. They will take over hotel lobbies, prevent other challengers from accessing transportation, and even shout and distract opponents during battle. Whenever Marnie battles, it seems these Team Yell Grunts are quick to appear, showing their support with Marnie-print towels and also horns.
Like Bede and Marnie, Team Yell were also part of an earlier leak about today’s video presentation. The leak was even spot-on about Team Yell being die-hard fans of Marnie, so there’s definitely some credibility behind the leaker in question!
We’ll report back when more Pokemon Sword and Shield news drops in the future. Stay tuned!
