Pokemon Sword and Shield may have one more legendary reveal up its sleeve.

An anonymous leak, reported on by GamesRader suggests that Pokemon Sword and Shield is getting a third legendary Pokemon. Alongside Zacian and Zamazenta, there’s a third “evil” legendary – Eternatus.

It’d be easy to dismiss the leak as rampant speculation. But the leak also suggested the existence of a corgi pokemon named Pamper – and on the E3 show floor, Nintendo announced the existence of two new Pokemon. Including, lo and behold, a Corgi named Yamper.

Close enough.

It wouldn’t be too shocking – the reveal video for good dogs Zacian and Zamazenta suggests the legendaries are preparing to face off against some unseen evil.

The leak also alleges another new feature: Gigantamax. Sword and Shield’s Dynamax feature makes Pokemon massive, but

“Gigantamaxing is different from Dynamax as it changes what the Pokemon looks like. Meowth looks like a long cat. Lapras gets layers like musical bars to its shell and musical notes. Pikachu looks like retro fat Pikachu.”

Other allegations include a Fairy-type gym, and a host of new Pokemon reveals. As always, take these leaks with a pinch of salt.
