A Pokemon that looks like a teapot. And we thought we hit rock bottom with the keychain Pokemon.

Nintendo spent most of their Direct presentation yesterday announcing new games and ports, but they also took the time out to provide updates on some of their previously announced upcoming titles as well. A roughly 3 minute-long update on Pokemon Sword and Shield provided details on some new features we can expect to see in the upcoming RPG duo.

The biggest new addition is camps, where trainers can interact and play with their Pokemon to develop bonds with them. Camps can be set up anywhere in the Wild Area- in fact, you can even spot others players’ camps in the Wild Area, and visit them with your own Pokemon.

Customization has also been expanded. While customization has been in Pokemon games for a while now, Sword and Shield are offering greater options than before. There’s also a new cooking mini-game in there, which seems similar to the one we saw in Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, only with more bells and whistles.

Finally, two new Pokemon were also revealed. There’s Polteageist, the ghost-type Pokemon that, for some reason, looks like a teapot. Then there’s Cramorant, the water/flying-type Pokemon, which has a unique ability that allows it to spit an entire fish at opposing Pokemon in response to being hit with attacks. Get the full details in the video below.

Pokemon Sword and Shield are out for the Switch on November 15.
