Earlier today, Gigantamax Charizard, Eevee, Meowth, and Pikachu were leaked. Now, the teased video presentation shows these Pokemon Sword and Shield Gigantamax Pokemon in action. A number of new forms have been shown, including one belonging to a special Meowth that will be an early purchase bonus for people who buy and play the game by January 15, 2020.


This Gigantamax Pokemon Sword and Shield video began with a look at Gigantamax Pikachu. Once you use the mechanic, it has G-Max Volt Crash. To get it, you need to have Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! play records. There is also Gigantamax Eevee, with its G-Max Cuddle. Likewise, it requires Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! play records. Gigantamax Charizard has the G-Max Wildfire move. If you use it, non-fire types take damage for four turns. Gigantamax Butterfree has G-Max Befuddle, which can inflict paralysis, poison, or sleep. As for the special “longcat” Meowth, it has G-Max Gold Rush. That move confuses enemies and gives you in-game money.


Here is the full Gigantamax video.



Pokemon Sword and Shield will be released on the Nintendo Switch on November 15, 2019.
