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.

    -I'm a bit conflicted on Impidimp; Dark/Fairy is a typing I've been looking forward to since the introduction of Fairy, but there's something about Impidimp that's not doing it for me. Hopefully it'll have a cool evolution
    -I love Yamper

    Considering it's probably safe to say the leaks are accurate, I'm excited to see the 'spy themed chameleon' Sobble becomes. Also Farfetch'd apparently having an evolution after so long and so many people wanting it will be fun

    I think it looks like Simisear's true form.

    Impidimp looks like it has some Chinese or Korean mythology behind it, I think it would be fitting if it evolved into something of a dokkaebi, a goblin of Korean folklore

    Ooh! I was thinking an Oni, but that would be great too.

    I can't believe you just killed Gene Simmons.

    Impdimp’s evolution: Stanlevil. Looks like Impdimp, except it has a star over its eye instead of the swirly purple blobs.

    Most likely from this imp that resided near where I used to reside at my Uni. Hopefully evolves into Ziggy Stardust or King Diamond.
    These two reveals are very British.

    I just checked and the dark/fairy combo has weaknesses to Steel, Poison, and Fairy moves. That's all
