Nintendo recently revealed its newest Pokémon at their Treehouse Live presentation at E3.
The Pokémon called ‘Yamper’ will be featured in their upcoming “Sword and Shield” game, due to be released in November.
He is classified as an “electric species Pokémon” and his moves have been described as “electric, fairy, and dark”.
According to the website Serebii, “if the Pokemon is not holding an item, it will fetch the Poke Ball from the first failed throw of the battle.”

Beyond Yamper’s statistics and skills, people have taken to referring to him as an ‘electric corgi’. We have to admit, the resemblance is uncanny.
Yamper really is just a corgi in Pokémon form — complete with the heart shape on his behind!

Fans were absolutely thrilled seeing the newest adorable addition the Pokémon line-up. Putting together two universally loved creatures, corgis and Pokémon, seems to have been a stroke of genius. People can’t wait to get their hands on “Sword and Shield”, if even just to catch this good boy.
What do you think of Yamper?
