Sobble

Sobble is a Water type Pokémon introduced in Generation 8. It is known as the Water Lizard Pokémon.

Sobble is one of the starter Pokémon available in Pokémon Sword & Shield (releasing late 2019) along with Grookey and Scorbunny.

It is a somewhat timid Pokémon that shoots out attacks as it hides itself in the water. The Sword & Shield announcement trailer shows it camouflaging itself in a fountain, but runs off when Grookey approaches.

Sobble appears to be based on a chameleon. It has a fin on its head and a curled-up tail.
