Pokemon Sword: Bea, a new fighting specialist gym trainer, has been revealed in today's Pokemon Sword and Shield trailer. The Pokemon Twitter account has been dropping loads of news about the game alongside the trailer, including a totally new piece of exclusive content coming to each game: Pokemon Sword and Shield will have a number of different gym leaders.

Pokemon Sword: Bea
"Bea is a prodigy in Galar karate, carrying on its century-old traditions and techniques," her description reads. "She’s also an expert on Fighting-type Pokémon! She’s known for her stoicism and very rarely shows her emotions. It seems her battle style remains very precise, even when she’s backed into a corner!"
Bea will only be able to be challenged in Pokemon Sword. Pokemon Shield players will instead compete against Allister, a ghost type trainer.
So far we've only seen 14 of this generation's new Pokemon, and we still don't know the typings of the legendaries Zacian and Zamazenta, but we haven't seen any confirmed fighting type Pokemon. Bea's roster is still a bit of a mystery, so keep an eye out for new announcements leading up to the game's November 15 release date.
