One character from Pokemon Sword and Shield's new rival reveals has captured the attention of Pokemon. The goth rival Marnie has a new Pokemon at her side called Morpeko along with spiked boots and a bunch of devoted, boisterous fans behind her as she looks to become the next Pokemon Champion of the Galar region. With how much love she's getting online, she's about got as big of a following the real world as she does in the games before Sword and Shield even release.
Marnie was revealed to be one of the new rivals in Sword and Shield by the trailer above which was released on Wednesday. She wasn't the only rival revealed with rival Pokemon Trainer Bede also making an appearance, but she's the one fans have been paying the most attention to so far.
Meet Marnie, Trainers! She’s teamed up with Morpeko and wants to become the Champion of the Galar region in order to accomplish a certain goal.August 7, 2019
In Sword and Shield, Marnie is supported by Team Yell, a faction that'll stop at nothing to make sure she becomes the champion. Judging from the reactions below, it looks like plenty of other people are already ready to join Team Yell in their mission.
Pokemon Sword and Shield releases for the Nintendo Switch on November 15th.

Bunch of Hooligans
Given that the upcoming Pokemon Sword/Shield game is based off the UK region, it's only fitting that the bad guys, "Team Yell" are based off soccer hooligans.
One of them's even holding up a body pillow of Marnie. Yikes. pic.twitter.com/kp0vy8Vl30— Nafees (@Deep_Diver_0) August 7, 2019

Okay here me out just a quick theory on the whole chairman rose is evil. What if Marnie is his daughter and he’s hiring the members of team yell to do everything in their power to make her the champion???? #PokemonSwordamdShield pic.twitter.com/xwMRzdBWiL— Seanothan (@SeanothanPM) August 7, 2019
Take Notes, Team Rocket
