Players are going hands-on with Pokémon Sword and Shield right now at E3 and spotting all-new Pokémon.

Nintendo Everything spotted two new Mon. The first is an Electric-type Pokémon called Yamper who looks like a cross between Pikachu and a Corgi. Yamper knows moves like Bark – I mean Spark! – Play Rough, Crunch, and Wild Charge. It has a new ability that collects the first failed throw of a Poké Ball, so clearly Yamper is a good boi at fetch.

Impidimp is the second Pocket Monster sighted on the showfloor, and according to the Twitter account, the cute, imp-looking Pokémon is both a dark and fairy type.
