Just when you think you’re done with the Pokémon Sun and Moon announcements for a while, they just keep on coming! Announced today via a trailer, we’ve got 4 new Pokémon to talk about; 3 of which were leaked in an edition of CoroCoro magazine a few weeks back.
Let’s get into it:
First up is a brand new Pokémon, Crabrawler, the Boxing Pokémon! (Get it? Boxing gloves.) Its Fighting-Type, despite looking like a lobster, with the Abilities Hyper Cutter, which prevents its attack from being lowered; and Iron Fist, which boosts the power of punching moves.
These 2 were leaked in the previous edition of CoroCoro magazine, but now we know what to call them in English (which is the most important thing). Sandygast, the Sand Mound Pokémon isGhost/Ground-Type with the Ability Water Compaction which boosts Defense when hit by a Water-type move, as is its evolution, Palossand, the Sand Castle Pokémon.
Lastly, I bring you Stufful, the Struggle Pokémon, and the pre-evolved form of Beware. And yes, it has a tag sticking our of its butt. 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 clumsy and can’t hold any items. How could it? It doesn’t have any hands!
