Is there any Pokémon design better than the original chunky-style Pikachu? Our money is firmly on NO, and it seems Game Freak is well aware of how effective the old large and in charge design was. Thus, Fat Pikachu is officially coming back as a Gigantamax Pokémon in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.

The new Gigantamax forms were revealed during the official Pokémon YouTube channel’s video earlier today. In addition to Gigantamax Pikachu—which has the new G-Max Volt Crash move—you can see Gigantamax versions of Eevee (new move: G-Max Cuddle), Charizard (G-Max Wildfire), Butterfree (G-Max Befuddle), and a very long Meowth (G-Max Gold Rush) in the video below.

Pokémon Sword and Shield launch on November 15.
