Pokemon Sun & Moon information run down

New information regarding Pokemon has been revealed today. Going over each Pokemon in detail, as well as finally giving the names of the two Pokemon revealed in CoroCoro a few weeks ago. A trailer with some new information was also included as well as an update on the Sun & Moon website.

Starting off with Tapu Koko, it has been revealed to be the 'Land Spirit Pokemon' with the ability Electric Surge that adds Electric Terrain as soon as it comes into battle. It has a move called Nature's Madness that halves the opponent's HP. The official website gives this description of the Guardian of Melemele.

'Tapu Koko is a special Pokemon that protects the area where it lives. It's called the guardian deity of Melemele Island, one of the islands of the Alola region. Although it's known as a guardian deity, it's a surprisingly fickle Pokemon, and will not necessarily come to your aid if you need help.

Despite that, this Pokemon has a strong sense of curiosity. If it becomes interested in a person or in other Pokemon, it may come to play or battle with them. 

Tapu Koko can store up electricity by enclosing itself in the shells on its arms. And it also appears to enter this form during other, special times...'

The first of the two Pokemon revealed in CoroCoro has been revealed to be called Rockruff, it is the 'Puppy Pokemon' with the abilities of either Keen Eye or Vital Spirit. This Pokemon has also been confirmed to evolve at least once via its description on the main website.

'Rockruff has an excellent sense of smell, and once it has smelled an odour, it doesn't forget it! There are tales of these Pokemon getting separated from their Trainers, then using the faintest traces of their scent to track them for days until they are reunited!

Rockruff is a sociable Pokemon, but as it grows, its disposition gets wilder. If it beings to howl when the sun goes down, that is proof that it's close to evolving. It's said that it leaves its Trainer's side to evolve and returns again when fully evolved. 

Rockruff greet others by rubbing the rocks around their necks against the other. This grating greeting is an expression of fondness, but a Trainer may find that love hurts.'  

The second of the two Pokemon revealed in CoroCoro has been revealed to be called Komala, it is the 'Drowsing Pokemon' with the ability Comatose that prevents it from all status ailments except sleep. The official website describes it as.

'No one has ever seen a Komala awake. It eats, travels, and even battles while sound asleep! Its saliva can be used as medicine for the sick or sleepless, according to ancient people. They say if you take a small amount of the saliva remaining after it eats leaves, water the saliva down, and drink it, you'll be able to sleep well. 

Komala clings to a log pillow that its parents have given to it. Once it has grasped this log, it almost never releases it. If it does lose hold of its log, the Pokemon will be unable to sleep well and will thrash about wildly. Apparently it will sometimes cling to the arm of a Trainer it trusts. 

The ever-sleeping Komala's expression sometimes changes, as if it has awareness of its surroundings and the talking of people nearby. But it appears that these changes in expression are actually just a result of the dreams it's experiencing.' 

Charjabug has been confirmed to be the 'Battery Pokemon' with the new ability Battery that increases the power of ally Pokemon's special moves. It is able to learn the move spark. The official site states.

'Charjabug stays perfectly still in preparation for Evolution, and often spends time with its body half-buried in the earth. Charjabug is able to store up electricity. It can store enough power to run a household for a whole day. The power it stores can be provided to other Pokemon, so it can also serve as a battery!'

Vikavolt is the 'Stag Beetle Pokemon' and is confirmed to have the ability Levitate to stop it being hit by ground type moves. It also has the move Zap Cannon. The official website states.

'Vikavolt is like a fortress that zooms through the forest, firing a beam of electricity from its mouth. Its huge jaws control the electricity it blasts out. 

Vikavolt is adept at acrobatic flight maneuvers like tailspins and sharp turns. It can fly at high speeds even as it weaves its way through the complicated table of branches in the forest. 

Vikavolt clasps Charjabug with its legs and uses it as an extra battery. Even if a battle drags on, it can use the electric power from Charjabug to continue firing off powerful moves. When Vikavolt is engaged in a fierce aerial fight, it releases Charjabug to make itself lighter and increase its mobility.'

The adorable Togedemaru is the 'Roly-Poly Pokemon', it has either the ability Lightning Rod or Iron Barbs. It is able to learn the move Discharge. The official site states.

'Togedemaru is the Roly-Poly Pokemon that gathers electricity and stores it. The long needle that grows from the back of its head works as a lightning rod to attract electricity. With this reservoir of electrical energy, Togedemaru is able to release powerful Electric-type attacks!

Covering its body is a pattern of fur with strands like needles. The means that Togedemaru can roll itself up, and presto-it's a ball of prickles!

Some skilled Trainers have developed the strategy of getting other Pokemon to unleash Electric-type attacks on Togedemaru, which absorbs their power to use in a response attack!
On days when lightning strikes, you can sometimes see Togedemaru gather and bristle up their needles, waiting to be struck by lightning.'

Cutiefly is the 'Bee Fly Pokemon' and is based on a species of the same name. It comes with one of two abilities, either Honey Gather or Shield Dust. The official site states.

'Cutiefly can detect the auras of living things, including people, Pokemon, and plants. They search out flowers by the colour and brightness of their auras and then gather their nectar and pollen. 

When living creatures are excited, it seems that their auras resemble those of flowers in full bloom. As a result, these Pokemon tend to gather near people or Pokemon feeling particularly happy or sad. 

Cutiefly mostly live in the fields and meadows on the outskirts of cities, but they sometimes appear in towns and even inside buildings, drawn in by the emotions of the living beings of the community.'

Drampa is the 'Placid Pokemon' which it comes with one of two abilities, either Sap Sipper or the new ability Berserk that increases its special attack when its HP goes below 50%. The official site states.

'Drampa are dragons that live alone in the mountains 10,000 feet above sea level. Since they can't obtain the Berries they feed on at that range, they descend to the base of the mountains at dawn every day. Drampa love communicating with people and Pokemon. 

Drampa are especially gentle with children and often appear at schools and parks where children gather. 

While Drampa is usually a very gentle Pokemon, it can fly into a rage if a child it cares for is hurt in some way. The Dragon Breath move that it fires off at such times is powerful enough to blow down buildings!'

The final Pokemon is Bruxish which is the 'Gnash Teeth Pokemon. It has two abilities, Strong Jaw or the new ability Dazzling that prevents priority moves from working. The official site states.

'Bruxish emits a strong psychic power from the protuberance on its head. When its opponents are bathed in this power, they're stricken with terrible headaches and fall unconscious. As it emits its psychic power, it grinds its teeth loudly. When nearby Pokemon hear the sound of Bruxish's teeth gnashing, they sense danger and flee immediately. 

In the Alola region, lifeguards let Bruxish remain in their area to prevent dangerous Water-type Pokemon from gathering there.

Bruxish digs holes in the seafloor, leaving just the protuberance on its head exposed, while emitting a low level of psychic power. This serves as a radar, so when it detects prey, it can leap to the attack!'

A trailer show casing all this information along with Zygarde's forms and some snazzy battle music was also released.

Not only this but many pre-release screenshots were shown, giving an indication of what the trade animation looks like, a look at the different environments of the Alola region. It also confirms the return of riding pokemon with a screenshot of someone riding a Stoutland.

The official site also gave this information.

'In the world of Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon, you'll discover moves more powerful than any seen before, adventures in uncharted locations, and many more delights just waiting to be explored! Get an early look at what's to come. More detailed information about the new features in Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon will be available soon.'
