We’re now one month away from the launch date of Pokémon Sword and Shield and the list of Gigantamax forms just keeps growing. The franchise’s official Twitter account posted a video today revealing new Gigantamax forms for five Kanto Pokémon: Pikachu, Eevee, Charizard, Butterfree, and Meowth.

Pikachu’s Gigantamax form resembles his earlier, chubbier designs. His Gigantamax form gives him a new move called G-Max Volt Crash, which paralyzes all opponents on the field. This Pikachu is a special Pokémon, however—only those with a Let’s Go, Pikachu! save file will receive a Pikachu capable of this Gigantamax form.

Anyone with a Let’s Go, Eevee! save file will receive a special Eevee that has its own Gigantamax form. In its largest form, Eevee’s collar looks like a giant ball of fur. Eevee gets a new move named G-Max Cuddle, which infatuates all opponents of the opposite gender.

Anyone who purchases the game before Jan. 15 will receive a special Meowth with a Gigantamax form that boasts a stretched body and red clouds circling its torso. The Meowth comes with a move called G-Max Gold Rush, which confuses all targets and earns the player a cash bonus.

Charizard and Butterfree will also have their own Gigantamax forms—free of any strings or requirements. Gigantamax Charizard comes with a move called G-Max Wildfire, which causes damage over four turns to all non-Fire types on the field. Gigantamax Butterfree, on the other hand, comes with a move named G-Max Befuddle that causes poison, paralysis, or sleep to any opponent on the field.

Pokémon Sword and Shield launch worldwide for the Nintendo Switch on Nov. 15.
