The latest Nintendo Direct showed off more of the upcoming Pokémon coming to Pokémon Sword and Shield.

More Galar region Pokémon was shown off, like Polteagiest a ghost ‘mon that chills in a broken teapot. Its body tastes like tea, which means that yes, you can drink it, though we’re told not to drink too much or we’ll get a stomach ache.

There’s also Cramorant, the flying- and water-type Pokémon, who keeps a fish in its mouth and spits it out at enemies when attacked. When using Surf or Dive, it’ll come back with a fish in its mouth. Luckily, the fish isn’t identified as any water-type fish Pokémon we’ve seen so far.
