    The Newest Evil Team In Pokémon Is A Bunch Of Angry Stans

    Move over Team Rocket, Team Yell has arrived. And so have some adorable new Pokémon.

    If you've played a Pokémon game, you know that each one has an evil team that you have to take down. Team Rocket is iconic but with each new generation, new teams have been added. This year with Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield they're called Team Yell and they are a bunch of angry stans.

    Meet Team Yell! They're described on Pokémon's website as "a group of troublemakers who seem to appear wherever the Gym Challenge takes you and who attempt to get in your way at every opportunity." Their goal you might ask? To make sure that their hero and your rival, Marnie, becomes Champion.

    Team Yell even shows up on the battlefield when you have to take on Marnie. They'll do whatever it takes to hold you back or keep you distracted. They truly stan Marnie.

    Pokémon also unveiled a bunch of new pocket monsters. Some of which are actually new forms of old characters, called Galarian forms! Just look at this amazing new design for Weezing that adds smokestack top hats and mustaches.

    Morpeko is insanely cute and has two forms. If it doesn't eat it'll turn into its terrifying hangry form.
