Since Pikachu's rise to fame in the Pokemon Franchise, the creators at GameFreak have tried to recreate that same magic by introducing new Poekmon that are very similar to the Electric Mouse Pokemon. From PikaBlue (Marill) to Dedenne, GameFreak has made a number of variants of Ash's Faithful Partner
in hopes a striking it big once again. And now with the 8th Generation
of Pokemon being introduced within Pokemon Sword & Shield
, the next version of Pikachu has come with the reveal of another new Galar Region
Pokemon with the name of Morpeko.
At first glance, Morpeko looks very, very similar to Pikachu. However, it comes with a twist, found nowhere else than in its ability. Morpeko has a new ability called Hunger Switch, where it changes forms depending on its level of hunger (or so it seems). Morpeko is an Electric/Dark Type Pokemon, and it has an exclusive move called Aura Wheel. When in its normal form, Morpeko's Aura Wheel will be an Electric Type Attack
. However, when it's Hangry Form, this move will be a Dark Type Attack.
