Pokemon Sun & Moon even more new Pokemon!

A new batch of Pokemon have been revealed for Sun & Moon! A trailer showcasing each of these was shown. With some other features shown as well.

The first of these new Pokemon was shown in CoroCoro last week. This is the Pokemon 'Mimikyu', it is the Disguise Pokemon, with the Ghost/Fairy type combination. It has the ability 'Disguise', a new ability that allows Mimikyu to escape damage from an attack just once.

The official site states

'Mimikyu lives its life completely covered by its cloth and is always hidden. People believe that anybody who sees its true form beneath the cloth will be stricken with a mysterious illness. People in the Alola region are convinced that you must never try to peek beneath its covering. Mimikyu's health fails when it's bathed in rays of the sun, so it prefers to stick to dark places. It's rumoured that the reason it covers itself with a cloth is to avoid sunlight. 

The rising popularity of Pikachu-styled merchandise around 20 years ago is the reason that Mimikyu makes itself look like Pikachu. In fact, this Pokemon is dreadfully lonely, and it thought it would be able to makes friends with humans if only it looked like Pikachu.

Mimikyu's Pikachu-like appearance is due to its Disguise ability. In order to resemble Pikachu, this Pokemon makes patterens that look like eyes and a mouth appear on regular scrap of cloth' 

Next up is the second Pokemon revealed in CoroCoro, this is the Strong Arm Pokemon 'Bewear', it is a Normal/Fighting type Pokemon with the abilities, Klutz or a Fluffy. A new ability that halves the damage taken from attacks that make direct contact, but it doubles the damage from Fire type moves.

The official site states

'When Bewear is acting in a friendly fashion, just swinging its arms around, you must never dare to approach it carelessly. It is acknowledged to be a dangerous Pokemon, even within the Alola region. You may see warning signs posted near places it resides. 

When Bewear grows fond of its Trainer, it may show that feeling in a fond embrace - but the force of that hug is tremendous! Trainers must teach these Pokemon how to restrain their strength when showing affection.

Some wild Bewear use amazing martial-arts moves. Apparently the Pokemon learn these moves by watching Black Belts practising when they go'out to train in the woods.

Bewear's arms and legs are strong and highly developed. Its powerful spine enables it to lift objects weighing a ton or more. It loves to give crushing bear hugs - a tight hug from this Pokemon's arms will split anything at all in two!' 

Next up is the Turn Tail Pokemon, 'Wimpod', it is Bug/Water type. A combination only used by Surskit back in Generation 3. This scaredy little Pokemon has the new ability 'Wimp Out' where it will run away or switch out for another Pokemon when its HP falls below half.

The official site states

'Wimpod have a cowardly nature and are wary of noises and sudden movements. If you approach them in a group, they'll immediately run off. When Wimpod feel threatened, they spit out a poisonous liquid. The stench of this toxic fluid signals others that danger is near. Despite their extreme cowardice, their curiosity leads Wimpod to approach people or Pokemon that are standing still. 

Wimpod eat and store anything they find fallen on the ground. They also scavenge any garbage that's been dropped in the sea, so they're highly valued cleaners. They sometimes carry pearls or other valuable items, so humans or Pokemon like Murkrow may target them. 

Next is the Fruit Pokemon, 'Bounsweet'. This is a pure Grass type Pokemon and comes with the abilities of Leaf Guard or Oblivious.

The official site states

'Because it exudes a delicious smell from its entire body, Bounsweet is popular with Pokemon and people of the Alola region. Bounsweet's scent has a calming effect on humans, so many people let them live inside their homes as a sort of air freshener. Unfortunately, it's sometimes swalloed whole by Pokemon drawn to its aroma. 

When running away from other Pokemon, Bounsweet flees danger by skipping along the ground. Since its bouncy movements don't convey to others that it's actually in desparate flight, no one ever comes to its aid. 

When attacked by enemies, it drives them off by rotating the calyx on its head. The downside is how dizzy it gets afterwards!'

The fifth Pokemon revealed is the Posy Picker Pokemon, 'Comfey'. This Pokemon is a pure Fairy type and it resembles the Hawaiian flower necklaces. It comes with the abilities of Flower Veil and the new ability 'Triage', which gives restorative moves gain the highest priority in battle.

The official site states

'Comfey picks flowers and always carries them around. It makes a ring of blossoms and spreads oil from its body on it, which changes the flowers so they emit a soothing fragrance. It has a habit of giving these flower rings to those it's fond of. The aroma can soothe both itself and its allies. Comfey also helps with the treatment of people and Pokemon at Pokemon Centres and hospitals, thanks to its aroma. 

When attacked by other Pokemon, it throws its flowers and them to create an opening, and then it either flees or strikes back.'

The sixth and final Pokemon revealed is the Draft Horse Pokemon, 'Mudsdale'. This is a pure ground type Pokemon with the abilities of either Own Tempo or a new ability 'Stamina', this allows its defence to increase by 1 every time it is hit by an attack. It gets the attack 'Highhorse power', a new ground type attack.

The official site states

'Mudsdale is known for its powerful body as well as its emotional fortitude, which keeps it from being agitated by anything. It never cries out, no matter what kind of trouble it's in, and it defeats its opponents with a single powerful blow. Its legs are coated in protective mud, and the weight of this coating increases the force of its kicks. One kock, and a car is a pile of scrap! 

Mudsdale's running speed is not too swift, but it has excellent power and stamina. It can carry on for three days and three nights despite dragging loads of over 10 tons!

When mudsdale gallops in earnest, the power of each hoof-clop can dig out huge holes, even in asphalt. Mudsdale is forbidden to run on some of Alola's public roads.'

Along with these 6 brand new Pokemon, two other features were discussed in the trailer and on the official site.

The first is in regards to the Pokemon Global link. This feature will be ending its service for the Generation 6 games of 'X', 'Y', 'Omega Ruby' and 'Alpha Sapphire'. It will then be updated for Pokemon Sun & Moon with new features added for players to enjoy.

Not only will you be able to take part in the online competitions and live competitions. Players will be able to host their own friendly competitions. Players are able to create these competitions and set their own regulations for them. Friendly competitions come in two different styles but it does not say what they are, it allows players to recruit friends to enjoy climactic battles.

The final feature discussed is the new 'Hyper Training' feature, which has never been done in a Pokemon game before. This allows the player to increase the individual strengths of a Pokemon that has reached level 100! Increasing their stats whilst not being able to train them in EXP any further.

This new feature is done by Mr.Hyper, who is a man that loves to collect Bottle Caps. If you bring them to him, he will train your Pokemon via Hyper Training. It does not state where Mr.Hyper is located.

The final point they make on Hyper Training, is that the Magearna the players can obtain will be holding a Bottle Cap. As mentioned above, Mr.Hyper will only assist the player if they have bottle caps.

Pokemon Sun & Moon will be out November this year, 18th for US and Japan, 23rd for Europe.

What do you think to these new Pokemon? What version of Sun & Moon will you be getting?
