Team Yell Grunts in Pokémon Adventures

Team Yell Grunts made their debut appearance in the Sword & Shield chapter. Two Grunts attacked Sōdo and Shirudomiria at the Wild Area in an attempt to destroy their Gym Challenge uniforms. Sōdo and Shirudomiria pushed the Grunts into a nearby Pokémon Den, forcing the four to team up in a Max Raid Battle against the wild Gurdurr that lurked inside. Though the Gurdurr was eventually defeated and caught by Sōdo, the Grunts' Pokémon were knocked out during the battle, forcing them to flee.

Team Yell Grunt was introduced as a Supporter card in the Pokémon Trading Card Game during the English Sword & Shield Series (the Japanese Sword & Shield Era). It was first released in the Japanese V Starter Set Water. It later appeared in the Japanese Shield expansion before debuting in English in the Sword & Shield expansion, with artwork by nagimiso. It was also released as a Full Art card and Secret card in the same Japanese and English expansions, with artwork by the same artist. It allows the player to return an Energy card attached to one of their opponent's Pokémon to their hand.

Trivia

  • The logo of Spikemuth Chamber of Commerce can be seen on the uniforms of Team Yell Grunt. Interestingly, there is only one single Poké Job from Spikemuth Chamber of Commerce in the game, yet the Job in question, along with the logo, can be seen on a pre-release Poké Jobs screenshot.
