To celebrate the release of Pokémon Sword and Shield a new form of Weezing was added to Pokémon Go. The official twitter page for Pokémon Go has announced that Galarian Weezing has been added to raid battles to celebrate the release of Pokémon Sword and Shield, Weezing will be appearing in 4 star raid battles and with this promotion also comes with clothing based on the Generation 8 titles. Hopefully in the future more Galarian forms will be available to catch and with Pokémon Home releasing sometime in 2020 it’ll be easy to transfer them to Pokémon Sword and Shield.

You might notice that Galarian Weezing looks different than Weezing from the Kanto region! It’s adapted itself to the environment in the Galar region, which is where Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield are set. Galarian Weezing even has two types—Poison and Fairy! Get ready to show your love for the Galar region! In celebration of the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield release, you can receive new avatar items based on the main characters’ clothes in the Style Shop for free! It’s time to gear up and take on Galarian Weezing while sporting a fresh look from the Galar region.

Pokémon Go is available now on iOS and Android while Pokémon Sword and Shield are available exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
