On the 14th of June a new video was released for the new Pokémon Sun and Moon games. Earlier this week two other pokémon has been announced through CoroCoro. Besides their Japanese names the information is limited so we will be discussing more about them once more information on them is announced. But they are a puppy Pokémon called Iwanko and a Koala pokemon named Nekkoala.
The video contained information about four new Pokémon as the new battle system Battle Royale. The battle royale is a four-player battle, where each trainer can use three Pokémon. The last Pokémon standing will be the winner together with it’s trainer.
The first Pokémon I will be discussing is: Pikipek. Some of you may recognize the pokemon as it has similarities with some leaked images!
US Name: Pikipek
Japanese Name: Tsutsukera (ツツケラ)
Classification: Woodpecker Pokémon
Ability: Keen Eye / Skill Link
Pikipek can strike 16 times a second with its beak. These strikes are powerful enough to not only drill through hard wood but even shatter stone. The noises made by their blows can signal others. Some of these signals have been identified as warning signals and greetings among allies. Pikipek Trainers have grown to recognize them as well.
These Pokémon drill holes in trees and store food in the holes. They also like small, glittering objects and will tuck them away in their food stores, too. It’s often said, “Something lost, something missed, check inside the Pikipek nest.”
Pikipek will attack distant opponents by zipping seeds at them. These shots have enough strength to embed the seeds in tree trunks.
The second pokemon is:
US Name: Yungoos
Japanese Name: Yangoose (ヤングース)
Classification: Loitering Pokémon
Weight: 13.2 lbs.
Ability: Stakeout / Strong Jaw
Yungoos is a big eater that is never satisfied. The majority of its long body is given over to its stomach, and its digestion is swift, so it’s always hungry. It has strong fangs, so it can crush and consume the hardest of objects.
Each Yungoos chooses its own particular route for searching out prey. It stalks along this route searching for food until it’s exhausted, at which point it drops and sleeps wherever it may be. It’s thought that these Pokémon decide their routes based on safety, so that there’s no risk in falling asleep at any time.
Yungoos is not a Pokémon that is native to the Alola region. It was brought to the region to help deal with the explosive population of a certain other Pokémon, and now Yungoos are commonly seen around the Alola region.
Some Yungoos have an Ability that no other Pokémon discovered has previously had. This Ability is known as Stakeout. With the Stakeout Ability, this Pokémon’s moves can deal twice the normal damage to any Pokémon that switch in or enter the field mid-battle.
Since this Pokémon is so common in the Alola region, it’s easy to catch one. But this Pokémon has a terrible temper when it’s hungry—and it demands a whopping amount of food.
US Name: Grubbin
Japanese Name: Agojimushi (アゴジムシ)
Classification: Larva Pokémon
Grubbin relies on its sturdy jaw as a weapon in battle and as a tool for burrowing through the earth. Grubbin loves electricity, which is why it can be found near power plants and substations. By wrapping tree branches in the sticky threads that it spews from its mouth, Grubbin can swing around like an actor on suspension wires!
And lastly one we have seen before aswell:
US Name: Magearna
Japanese Name: Magearna
Classification: Artificial Pokémon
Ability: Soul Heart
Magearna is a Mythical Pokémon that was created by a scientist of uncommon genius 500 years ago. Magearna has the power to perceive the emotions, thoughts, and feelings of other Pokémon. If a Pokémon is injured, Magearna will feel the other’s pain and suffering and will try as hard as it can to save that Pokémon.
Magearna’s real body is the spherical construction in its chest called the Soul-Heart, created by a scientist who gathered the life energy from Pokémon.
Magearna has the ability to transform itself into the appearance of a Poké Ball! It does so when it sleeps, and apparently also when it’s sad.
Magearna’s Ability is the Soul-Heart Ability, a new Ability that no previous Pokémon has had. Soul-Heart has the effect of raising Magearna’s Sp. Atk by 1 each time another Pokémon in the area faints. This is a new Ability—one that can be put to good use in battle.
