It has been many years since an Older Pokemon received an additional evolution to its Evolution Chain. Sure, the Pokemon Company has given us Mega Evolutions
and Alolan Forms (and now Galarian Forms
) in the interim, but fans haven't seen an older Evolution Chain grow since basically the 4th Generation (not counting the addition of Sylveon). But now, coming in Pokemon Sword & Shield
, it appears all of that will change!
Apart of the Galarian Forms
Reveal, it was also shown that the Zigzagoon
Evolution Chain will receive an additional evolution to it (but only in its Galarian Evolution Chain). This Pokemon will be called Obstagoon, and it will be a Dark/Normal Type Pokemon like Galarian Zigzagoon and Linoone. It will have the incredible Abilities
of Reckless & Guts, and it will even know the newest move called Obstruct. This Attack
causes damage to a foe, while having the secondary effect of also Taunting the Pokemon.
