Two new Pokémon were showcased in the short two-minute trailer. And while they haven’t been officially given names yet, the Pokémon in question are Mr. Rime and Runerigus, according to recent leaks.

Mr Rime is an evolution of a Galarian Mr. Mime, while Runerigus is the evolution of the Galarian Yanmask, according to last week’s leaks. Mr. Rime will allegedly be a Psychic and Ice-type Pokémon, while Runerigus is a Ghost and Ground-type creature.

The trailer also showcased a general recap of modes and features that we already knew were coming to the game in the next few days.
