Pokemon Sword & Shield Might Introduce a new Pokemon Type

A new Pokemon SW&SH thread has been spotted online and according to the person who started the thread, Game Freak will introduce a new Royal type Pokemon most probably at the end of August along with other SW&SH news.

The person behind the leak wants to keep his/her job safe, so he/she didn’t say a lot about them, but he/she shared interesting info about upcoming features in Sword and Shield.

First thing first, the leaker confirms that a new type of Pokemon is coming and it’s not Sound type like most people are saying but is a Royal Type Pokemon.

Now, according to the info, Gigantamax Lapras, Gigantamax Charizard, Zacian, Zamazanta, Nidoran, Slowking, the Legendary Beasts, Empeleon, Vespiquen, Victini, Arceus, Magikarp/Gyarados, Milotic (not Feebas), Kingler and the new evolution of Kingler, the new evolution of Farfetched and the new evolution of Eevee will be a Royal Type Pokemon.  So pretty much every Pokemon with a crown and king/queen like features will be a Royal Type Pokemon.

The leaker also confirmed that Game Freak will not release a new Pokemon called Meteodyna and they will be releasing new info about the game on the Pokemon YT channel at the end of this month, August 2019.
