Attendees at E3 have gotten the chance to experience a demo version of Pokémon Sword and Shield and spotted some new portable atrocities to be encapsulated en-masse.

Ones who just can't seem to keep their tongues in their mouths apparently.

The first is Yamper, an Electric-type Pokémon based on a Corgi - because a UK-based region without a Corgi is as unthinkable as a US-based region without a terribly stereotypical eagle. It was confirmed to have Play Rough, Spark, Crunch and Wild Charge in its move pool, and to have a new ability called Ball Fetch - which, if Yamper isn't already holding an item, fetches the first Pokéball thrown in the encounter that failed to capture its target.

The second is Impidimp, a truly ridiculous cartoon-goblin-looking Dark/Fairy Pokémon which has been shown to know the moves Assurance, Sucker Punch and Play Rough.

So far, that's all we know about them, but we...

During Nintendo's Treehouse Live after their E3 Direct gameplay was shown off for the up-coming Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield games. The segment of gameplay was from the Wild Area where we could see Pokémon roaming around and the weather changing (which also affects the weather conditions in battle).

You can check out the footage for yourself after the jump and we've also detailed anything of note mentioned throughout the video!
Just a quick heads up that the official Pokémon Twitter account has confirmed that today's Nintendo E3 Direct, happening at 9 AM PST (or 5 PM BST if you're in the UK), will contain news for Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.

What will be revealed is anyone's guess. Maybe we'll see a new Pokémon or two, the starting area town, or a slightly deeper look at the games overall?

Whatever the case, if you're a Pokémon fan or just a Nintendo fan in general, it'll be worth tuning in to see all of the latest Nintendo news. You can find a video for today's upcoming Nintendo Direct (and today's Treehouse E3 coverage, which will follow directly after the E3 Direct) below:

All the way back in 2017, The Pokemon Company announced the latest entry in the Pokémon Rumble spin-off series, PokéLand. Intended for release exclusively on iOS and Android, this was effectively a follow-up to the Pokémon Rumble World3DS free-to-play game released a year before. An alpha test of the game took place in Japan over the space of a few weeks after announcement and then the game was never heard or seen from again.

Until last week when it suddenly appeared on the Google Play Store in Australia, now called Pokémon Rumble Rush. The name may have changed in the 2 years the game has been MIA, but the rest of it looks pretty much exactly as it did back when it was called PokéLand. Quite what happened to the game to initially delay it, or...

Some of you may remember that back in 2017 a new Pokémon mobile game was announced under the name PokéLand, but despite even getting to beta testing it was never released. Today the game has resurfaced as Pokémon Rumble Rush, a new mobile game heading soon to mobile devices worldwide.
