More Pokemon Gigantamax Forms Announced for Sword and Shield

Pokemon Sword and Shield keeps adding fuel to the meme fire with the newly announced Gigantamax forms for Pokemon such as Pikachu and Meowth. However, there are caveats to some of these additions.  The Gigantamax Pikachu is a pudgy, chunky Pikachu that is currently stealing the Internet right now, which also comes with the special move G-Max Volt Crash. Gigantamax Charizard has a bad-ass fire cape on its back and looks overall awesome, which features the special move G-Max Wildfire.

Gigantamax Eevee has a fluffy, voluptuous coat of fur, which appropriately has a special move G-Max Cuddle. To further add to the cuteness, Butterfree has its own Gigantamax model, which has the move G-Max Befuddle (nice rhyming convention). Perhaps the weirdest model of them all has to be Meowth, who gets a ridiculously long body. Meowth’s special move is G-Max Gold Rush. Now, what are those caveats mentioned earlier? Well, for Pikachu and Eevee, players would need save data on Pokemon Let’s Go, Pikachu and Eevee respectively. As for Meowth, this is an “early-purchase” promotion where players can only get the goofy-looking Pokemon before January 5th, 2020.

While these caveats are annoying, that shouldn’t a big problem for diehard Pokemon fans that would purchase all the new Pokemon games. The Pokemon Company and Nintendo have gotten scrutiny for producing exclusive content for either Sword or Shield, which upset some fans. However, given that the file size for both of these games exceeds 10GB, even with Nintendo’s insane data compression skills, that in itself indicates this generation has some meat to its bones.

What do you think of these new Gigantamax types? Are they too goofy or just perfect for you? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned for more Sick Critic content!
