Meet Pokémon Sword & Shield’s Water Gym Leader Nessa; New Pokémon Yamper And Impidimp


The Pokémon Company and Nintendo revealed the latest of Pokémon Sword & Shield at E3 2019, starting with the Water-type Gym Leader Nessa we saw in the Direct and two new Pokémon called Yamper and Impidimp.



Nessa is an expert on Water-type Pokémon and one of the Gym Leaders you must face on your adventure. Her calm and collected attitude hides a competitive spirit and indomitable will. She will overwhelm any opponent in battle by blasting them with powerful Water-type moves.


Here’s a first look at two new Pokémon introduced in Sword & Shield with Yamper and Impidimp [Thanks, @Serebii]:



Yamper is an Electric-type Pokémon with an ability that collects the first failed throw of a Poké Ball.



Impidimp, on the other hand,  so far we only know that it is a Dark/Fairy-type Pokémon.


Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield release for Nintendo Switch on November 15, 2019. Check out the latest batch of screenshots and info on the game in our previous report.
