Zacian or Zamazenta?
Today’s Pokemon Direct saw the introduction of 7 new creatures, including Pokemon Sword and Shield’s respective legendaries.
As speculated after the game’s reveal, the two legendaries are sword and shield-wielding wolves. Here’s the full list:
- Zacian – The wolf-life, sword-wielding legendary Pokemon.
- Zamazenta – Another legendary wolf, but with a shield-like appendage on its head.
- Wooloo – A sheep Pokemon with fur “treasured by weavers in a town in the Galar region.”
- Gossifleur – The ‘flowering Pokemon’, with healing pollen
- Eldegoss – An evolved form of Gossifleur, able to spread reviving seeds. In a Dynamaxed form, it can plant what look like leech seeds that sprout into giant mushrooms.
- Drednaw – The ‘bit Pokemon’ has a vicious nature, and can bite through rock and iron.
- Corviknight – A metallic new bird Pokemon that acts as a flying taxi in Galar. It sounds as though it will act as a fast travel system, able to return the player to any town they’ve previously visited.
