    In Galarian culture, Pokémon battles are regarded as the most popular form of entertainment. With that being said, let’s check out which Pokémon players would get to bring with them when as they start their journey in the coming Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.

    First Partner Pokémon
    Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble are three Pokémon that players can choose to be their first partner. Newly discovered details for these Pokémon include the following.

    Category: Chimp Pokémon
    Type: Grass
    Height: 1′
    Weight: 11 lbs.
    Ability: Overgrow

    The stick that Grookey holds, originally from the forest where groups of Grookey live, is imbued with special powers after being exposed to the energy within Grookey’s body. Its green fur creates energy from sunlight. When Grookey drums with its stick near wilted flowers and leaves, they regain their color.


    Category: Rabbit Pokémon
    Type: Fire
    Height: 1′
    Weight: 9.9 lbs.
    Ability: Blaze

    Scorbunny uses its powerful legs to confuse and disorient its opponents by running and jumping around them. Because the soles of its feet can become very hot, Scorbunny’s kick can burn and damage opponents, too. With a sac in its chest containing viscous fire energy, Scorbunny can increase its heart rate and body temperature by running around. This awakens the true power of its fire energy and greatly increases its physical abilities.
    Category: Water Lizard Pokémon
    Type: Water
    Height: 1′
    Weight: 8.8 lbs.
    Ability: Torrent

    When Sobble touches water, its body changes its pattern and color, allowing it to blend into its surroundings. A rather timid Pokémon, Sobble will secrete the water within its body like sweat and disappear into its surroundings when nervous or embarrassed. With tears that are as potent as a hundred onions, Sobble will start to bawl if it feels threatened, spreading its tears around the area and causing everyone around it to start crying uncontrollably. Sobble will then use this distraction as a chance to escape.

    Check out other Pokémon in the Galar Region
    Many different species of Pokémon call the Galar region home. Much is unknown about the biology of these Pokémon, so researchers are working diligently to discover more information.
    Category: Flowering Pokémon
    Type: Grass
    Height: 1′4″
    Weight: 4.9 lbs.
    Ability: Cotton Down / Regenerator

    Gossifleur prefers land with clear water and air. Its pollen has a healing effect and is commonly used as a folk medicine remedy and made into a tea given to children in the Galar region when they are ill. Gossifleur travels over long distances by getting blown along by the wind. It controls the direction of its travels by twisting its body and petals.


    Category: Cotton Bloom Pokémon
    Type: Grass
    Height: 1′8″
    Weight: 5.5 lbs.
    Ability: Cotton Down / Regenerator

    When Gossifleur evolves into Eldegoss, its head becomes covered in thick cotton fluff. This cotton fluff serves as a cushion that helps to protect Eldegoss’s head from damage. The tiny seeds attached to the cotton fluff are said to be highly nutritious and beneficial to both people and Pokémon. Eldegoss spreads these seeds throughout the region, making the soil of the Galar region rich in nutrients.


    Category: Sheep Pokémon
    Type: Normal
    Height: 2′
    Weight: 13.2 lbs.
    Ability: Fluffy / Run Away

    The white fur that covers Wooloo’s body grows throughout its life and will fully grow back in three months even if it has been completely shorn. The fur is used for clothing, carpets, and other goods and is very popular as a specialty product of the Galar region. Wooloo live as a herd and mimic the actions of their Trainer or herd leader. They dislike conflict, and if they need to escape from enemies, they will simply roll away.
    Category: Raven Pokémon
    Type: Flying/Steel
    Height: 7′3″
    Weight: 165.3 lbs.
    Ability: Pressure / Unnerve

    It is said that Corviknight is the strongest Pokémon living in the skies of the Galar region. It can often be seen fearlessly soaring through the air. Many say that any Pokémon foolish enough to challenge Corviknight are sent running with just a sharp glare and cry from this fearsome Pokémon. Because Corviknight possess superb flying skills and high intelligence, many of them work for the company called Galar Taxi and help transport people from town to town.

    Category: Bite Pokémon
    Type: Water/Rock
    Height: 3′3″
    Weight: 254.6 lbs.
    Ability: Strong Jaw / Shell Armor

    The jagged fangs of the Bite Pokémon Drednaw are strong and sharp enough to bite through rock and iron. Though it has a heavy shell, its well-developed muscles allow it to move quickly. Drednaw is known to be extremely aggressive, so it takes a skilled Trainer to tame and handle this Pokémon. It seems that some Trainers will release Drednaw back into the wild once they discover they can’t handle it.
