Pokémon fans rejoice! Two new Pokémon were spotted during the “Pokémon Sword and Shield” demo at E3 2019.

According to multiple accounts from people who were at the event, they spotted two unfamiliar-looking Pokémon during the demo. These two Pokémon were a corgi and an imp named Yamper and Impidimp, respectively.

Since Nintendo and the Pokémon Company have not officially confirmed the two Pokémon, there isn’t much information on them for now. Regardless, here’s what we know about the two so far.


Yamper is an electric-type Pokémon and is known as the corgi Pokémon. Many people were ecstatic to find this "good boy" during the “Pokémon Sword and Shield” demo at E3 2019 and even more excited to share its adorable neon, heart-shaped butt, which you can see below.

Screenshots from the “Pokémon Sword and Shield” demo show that Yamper can learn Play Rough, Spark, Wild Charge, Crunch and another brand-new ability unique to the corgi Pokémon. The ability lets Yamper fetch the first poke ball thrown by trainers that fails to capture and is aptly named Ball Fetch. Yamper’s list of moves suggests that it will lean more towards being a physically offensive Pokémon.


Impidimp is a dark and fairy-type Pokémon and is known as the imp Pokémon. This Pokémon is considered to be unusual by fans as little is known about it and it is the first Pokémon to have the "dark and fairy" attributes in the entire franchise. This Pokémon has a bat-like design, a tiny devil-like body, and has a mischievous stuck out tongue.

Both Pokémons have inspired all kinds of memes, fan-art, as well as hilarious reactions from fans and are considered to be a huge hit. It’s pretty clear that these two will be a fan-favorite when “Pokémon Sword and Shield” comes out.

The addition of this good boy and mysterious imp brings the number of new Pokémon in “Pokémon Sword and Shield” to 12. The previously revealed Pokémon include starters Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble, legendaries Zacian and Zazamenta, and Wooloo, Corviknight, Gossifleur, Eldegoss, and Drednaw.

“Pokémon Sword and Shield” is scheduled to release on Nov. 15 for the Nintendo Switch.
