It feels like every time the Pokémon comes up in social media or in a presentation, we learn something new about Alcremie. This upcoming Sword & Shield ‘mon is a Fairy-type delight based on cream, and after its introduction we found out that it goes full layer cake for its Gigantamax’d state. In this last Direct, though, we spotted a different variant of Alcremie — and it turns out there’s lots of flavors in store for us.


The above Twitter thread has various, official Pokémon accounts sharing looks at differing versions of Alcremie. I’m loving the blueberry take on it, but it looks like there’s something for plenty of tastes. Both the color of its body and its decorations can change, though there’s no word on this being a regional thing (think Vivillon) or tied to the new Pokémon Camp feature. Who knows what other surprises Alcremie has in store between now and November 15th?  

You can pre-order your copy of Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield on Amazon today.
