The latest trailer for Pokémon Sword and Shield showcases the upcoming Nintendo Switch title’s new Gigantamax feature alongside some new creatures to the franchise.

The electric-type Corgi Yamper makes its official introduction alongside a new rock-type Rolycoly and Duraludon, a steel/dragon-type, to name a few.

Gigantamaxing aptly turns Pokémon powerfully gigantic; like Dynomaxing, but the new feature also vastly changes their appearance like Mega Evolutions in previous games. It also allows them to utilize G-Max techniques that are unique to each monster. Corviknight transforms into a giant bird with red streaks, Drednaw turns into a turtle with a larger shell, etc. Gigantamax Pokémon will be able to be captured during specific Max Radi battles, although the title website notes they will be difficult to find.

Pokémon Sword and Shield arrives November 15 for the Nintendo Switch.

In other gaming news, a new retrospective on the legendary SEGA Dreamcast has surfaced.
