The Pokémon Company International and Game Freak revealed Nessa as the Water-type Gym Leader in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.

Nessa is an expert on Water-type Pokémon. Her calm and collected attitude hides a competitive spirit and indomitable will that becomes apparent when she overwhelms opponents in battle with powerful Water-type moves.

In Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, you will choose between three starter Pokémon – Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble – before having the chance to explore the Galar region – with its idyllic countryside, contemporary cities, thick forests, and craggy, snow-covered mountains.

In this region, the Pokémon Gyms are found in stadiums and attract Trainers that are experts in specific types of Pokémon. To become Champion, players will need to defeat the top Trainer in each Pokémon Gym – also known as the Gym Leader.

Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide on November 15th.
