The Mirage Monsters in the new Generation 8 are coming to Sword and Shield.

And it's starting with a familiar starter Pokémon and ending with a mythical Pokemon.

 

Sobble was based on a Beta Pokémon called Skimper.

"When it feels threatened, it begins to cry."

 

YOU VOTED FOR THE FINAL TYPE FOR SOBBLE, THERE WERE ONLY 2 TO CHOOSE FROM!

  • Water/Ghost-type
  • Water/Dragon-type

 

Water/Ghost-type won with 53%!

 

 

Why not Dragon? As explained on NINTENDO BLOG LEAKS.

A water/dragon-type starter would be too "Legendary" to be a part of the trio and it could even outshine the others.

 

Sword and Shield Pokémon are based on the unused Pokémon in Gold/Silver beta.

There's more! It's a KANTO Pokémon in disguise.

 

 

 

 

Sinnoh gave Kanto Pokémon Evolutions and Galar is set to follow suit!

Electivire, Magmortar, Rhyperior and Porygon-Z to name a few. Galar is set to give Kanto, Johto, and Hoenn Pokémon new Evolutions much like these with designs right out of 1996 and 1999!
