Pokemon Sword And Shield Introduces Cramorant, Polteageist, Pokemon Camps, And Curry Cooking




A number of new Pokemon Sword and Shield features and characters were revealed during the September 2019 Nintendo Direct. Two new Pokemon, Cramorant and Polteageist, were revealed. Pokemon Camps were shown off. Trainer customization and League Cards were discussed. Plus, we learned that Alcremie can be found in multiple flavors. 




The two new Pokemon are Cramorant and Polteageist. Cramorant is the Flying/Water Gulp Pokemon with a Gulp Missile ability. If it uses Dive or Surf, it will come back with food. This is known as its Gulping Form. It will then use that to counterattack if it is attacked while holding its meal.

Polteageist is the Ghost type Pokemon with Weak Armor. Its body is made of black tea and it lurks inside of a broken teapot.

Pokemon Camps can be set up while you play, and you can even visit others’ camps if you use the Wild Area and local communications. . When there, you can play with Pokemon or make curry. The ingredients determine which curry you will end up with, and the quality is determined by your fanning the flames and stirring. There is even a Curry Dex that keeps track of the different types. If you visit someone else’s camp, you can see their Pokemon or make curry with them.
