More Brand New Pokémon Announced

Some brand new Pokémon have been discovered in the Alola region via a new trailer! Check them out…


wimpod

Wimpod is the Turn Tail Pokémon. It’s Bug/Water-Type with the ability Wimp Out which when Wimpod’s HP drops below half in battle, it will run away or swap out for another Pokémon.


bounsweet

Bounsweet is the Fruit Pokémon. It’s Grass-Type with the abilities Leaf Guard which prevents status changes in strong sunlight, or the ability Oblivious which prevents the Pokémon being attracted to other Pokémon.


comfey

Comfey is the Posy Picker Pokémon (how cute!). It’s Fairy-Type with the abilities Flower Veil which prevents lowering ally Grass-type Pokémon’s stats, or Triage which makes restorative moves gain the highest priority in battle.


beware

Bewear is the Strong Arm Pokémon (we’ve seen this one briefly before!). It’s is Normal/Fighting-Type with the abilities Fluffy which halves the damage taken from attacks that make direct contact, but it also doubles the damage taken from Fire-type moves, or Klutz which means the Pokémon is… well… clumsy and can’t hold any items.


mudslade

Mudslade is the Draft Horse Pokémon. It’s a Ground-Type with the abilities Own Tempo which prevents the Pokémon from becoming confused, or Stamina which increases the Pokémon’s Defense by 1 when it’s hit by an attack.


mimikyu

Mimikyu is the Disguise Pokémon. It’s Ghost/Fairy-Type with the ability Disguise which allows the Pokémon to escape damage from an enemy’s attack just one time, and then its appearance changes (disguise falls over a bit).


The trailer also showed that we’d be able to host our own competitions using Global Link battles.

Not only that but Pokémon Sun and Moon is introducing Hyper Training where you can increase the individual strengths (IVs) of Pokémon that are at level 100 and utilises Bottle Caps to boost the stats.
