Introducing the Legendary Pokémon Zacian and Zamazenta!
These Pokémon are shrouded in mystery and are even unknown to those who live in the Galar region...#PokemonSwordShield
The new Pokémon in the games will include Wooloo, Gossifleur, Eldegoss, Drednaw, Corviknight, and the Legendary Pokémon Zacian and Zamazenta. The Legendary Pokémon (pictured above) easily found their way into fans' hearts after the trailer reveal. The combo of "sword + dog" and "shield + dog" was an easy one and fans quickly reacted to choose their favorite.

The Legendary Zacian and Zamazenta quickly put fans into two camps, but their reveals still seemed overshadowed by introduction of Wooloo, a sheep Pokémon and the internet's new favorite soft baby.

They dislike conflict, and if they need to escape from enemies, they will simply roll away. #PokemonSwordShield pic.twitter.com/3HhZeE79wI

Pokémon fans also took a shine to Corviknight, the next generation's resident Goth and...taxi driver.

Corviknight possess superb flying skills and high intelligence. Because of this, many work for the company called Galar Taxi, helping transport people from town to town.#PokemonSwordShield pic.twitter.com/p3Q3iARMLg
