Before Pokemon Sword and Shield were released on the Nintendo Switch last November, one of their biggest selling points was the summation of the “ Dynamax phenomenon ” to the series ‘ tried-and-true formula. major battles would take place in sports stadiums allowing trainers to turn their Pokemon into giants through a mysterious energy — with some of those Pokemon having unique Gigantamax forms and special attacks, reasonably in-line with previous battling gimmicks like Mega Evolution and Z-Moves .

Coming aboard the approaching DLC is a release update adding 200 erstwhile Pokemon back into the Galar PokeDex, including fan favorites like Sinnoh Champion Cynthia ‘s main collaborator Garchomp. Reddit user vanvanvan96 uploaded a mock-up of the Dragon/Ground-type Pokemon ‘s potential Gigantamax form, one that combines design elements from the master shape ( like the fins on its arms ) and the Mega Evolution phase introduced in Pokemon X and Y ( like the spikes around its thorax ).
Vanvanvan96 seems uncertain about the potential of a Gigantamax Garchomp being added into Sword and Shield, but with remakes of Diamond and Pearl potentially on the horizon there might still be a prospect ; specially given Garchomp ‘s connection to Cynthia .
Another big summation announced for the approaching DLC is fresh Legendary Pokemon, including concept artwork for members of the Regi family introduced in Generation 3. Reddit user kremit_the_frog expanded on the theme of the Regis ‘ heavy concenter by sketching out a cycloptic and technical Gigantamax shape of Regigigas .
Regigigas was first introduced to the Pokemon franchise aboard Garchomp in Generation 4, housed cryptic within a dungeon called the Snowpoint Temple. The potential location of the two new Regis is a red-and-yellow temple that is like to Snowpoint Temple being added in the Crown Tundra Expansion, so it seems smart to latch onto Regigigas for particular treatment .
Fans imagining electric potential new Gigantamax forms is not new to the wave of Sword and Shield DLC based on the Isle of Man and Scotland. One standout example from before the modern year featured a raw Ice-type Pokemon called Eiscue, for example .
The inflow of new monsters to Galar has intelligibly added a set of possibilities for talented artists to jump on. Vanvanvan96 and kremit_the_frog are just a few of those people putting their ideas out there, so fans of the series can look advancing to a bunch of alike art keeping their hype trains chugging from here on out .
Pokemon Sword and Shield are out now, entirely for the Nintendo Switch .
