New Pokemon Yamper, Electric, and Impidimp, Dark/Fairy, Revealed!

I’m here at E3 playing the Pokemon Sword & Shield demo! In the demo you play through Nessa’s Water-type Gym.

Two new Pokemon were revealed named Yamper, an Electric-type who’s in your party, and Impidimp, a Dark/Fairy-type.

Yamper‘s attacks are Play Rough, Spark, Crunch, and Wild Charge. Its Ability is Ball Fetch: “If this Pokemon is not holding an item, it will fetch the Poke Ball from the first failed throw of the battle.”

Sobble‘s attacks are Liquidation, Rain Dance, Soak, and Water Pulse.

Scorbunny‘s are Flame Charge, Quick Attack, Double-Edge, and Headbutt.

Grookey‘s are Razor Leaf, Uproar, Slam, and Knock Off.

Corviknight‘s are Brave Bird, Swagger, Drill Peck, and Steel Wing.

Wooloo‘s are Defense Curl, Double-Edge, Take Down, and Cotton Guard.

Gossifleur gets Hyper Voice.

Impidimp knows Assurance and Play Rough.

If you run in circles with the joystick, your character can pose (pictured right).

You can whistle, which will cause wild Pokemon to run to you.

Yamper was mentioned in the Pokemon Sword & Shield leaks, again showing their reliability.

    Yesss, the corgi pokemon is real :D

    Dark/fairy is another busted type combination though.

    Ooh, Yamper is cute! Ball Fetch seems like it will be a fun ability in-game. I do hope Impidimp evolves into something really cool, because Fairy/Dark is a cool combo.

    It was mentioned in the leak but was called “Pamper.” Man, I hate the design of Impidimp. Just terrible. Yamper is...ok, don’t love it but it may grow on me.

    I like that dog. Tempting to nickname it "Bolt"
    The other one feels weirdly familiar but I can't put my finger on it.

    I don't get Dark and Fairy out of the Impidimp, I get Dark and Fire; but that's just me.

    The Corgi Pokemon was pretty much a given, considering the region is based on. It's pretty adorable. Hope it evolves into something strong.

    To me it looks like something from The Simpsons. Like Itchy & Scratchy. XD

    Anyone else think Impidimp looks like a Rugrats character?

    Impidimp looks like an Ambipom possessed by a Gastly. But really stretched out.

    Dark/Fairy is weak to Poison, Steel, and Fairy. Fairy resists Fighting and Bug which are Dark-type's weaknesses

    I want to know if Impidimp got Prankster.

    The color of Impidim, the fangs, the tongue, pointy ears, remind me ... Gligar, like a cloned Gligar that came to wrong...

    It would be super cool if Impidimp evolved into a gargoyle! He's like Sableye's Galarian cousin :D
