New Pokémon revealed and detailed *update*

Update: There is now some gameplay footage for the latest Pokémon arrivals.

The trailer below shows Kiteruguma and Mimikkyu, although only very briefly. See if you can catch a glimpse of these new additions, which will be part of Pokémon Sun and Moon for 3DS, in the video below.

Are you excited for Pokémon Sun and Moon?

Original: The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo have revealed new Pokémon that can be found in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, available exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS. 

These Alola region Pokémon will appear in the latest generation of Pokémon video games which will launch in Europe on November 23.

Check out the new UK trailer and the description of all the new Pokémon below.

The newly revealed Pokémon include:

Name: Tapu Koko
Type: Electric/Fairy

Tapu Koko is the guardian deity of Melemele Island, one of the islands of the Alola region. Tapu Koko’s Ability is Electric Surge, an Ability which has never been seen before. The Electric Surge Ability fills the field around the Pokémon’s feet with electricity when it appears, raising the power of any Electric-type moves for Pokémon on the ground and preventing any Pokémon from falling asleep.

Name: Charjabug

Type: Bug/Electric
Charjabug is the first Evolution of Grubbin, a new Alola region Pokémon revealed last month. Charjabug’s Battery Ability allows it to raise the power of allies’ special moves.

Name: Vikavolt
Type: Bug/Electric

Vikavolt, the Evolution of Charjabug, is like a fortress that zooms through the forest, using its huge jaws to control a beam of electricity which it can fire from its mouth.

Name: Drampa
Type: Normal/Dragon

Drampa are dragons that live alone in the mountains 10,000 feet above sea level. With Drampa’s Berserk Ability, this Pokémon’s Special Attack stat will go up by one when its HP drops below half.

Name: Bruxish
Type: Water/Psychic

Bruxish emits a strong psychic power from the protuberance on its head while grinding its teeth loudly. Some Bruxish have the new Dazzling Ability which prevents opponents from using priority moves that normally strike first.

Name: Cutiefly
Type: Bug/Fairy

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

Name: Togedemaru
Type: Electric/Steel

Togedemaru is the Roly-Poly Pokémon which gathers electricity and stores it. The long needle that grows from the back of its head works as a lightning rod to attract electricity.

Name: Rockruff
Type: Rock

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

Name: Komala
Type: Normal

No one has ever seen a Komala awake. It eats, travels and even battles while sound asleep. According to ancient people, its saliva can be used as medicine for the sick or sleepless. Komala has the Comatose Ability which keeps it perpetually in a drowsing state, preventing it from getting any other status conditions.

New forms of the Legendary Pokémon Zygarde will appear for the first time in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. Zygarde is made up of a multitude of cell-like components and, depending on how many of them it has gathered together, its appearance changes.

Name: Zygarde 50% Forme
Type: Dragon/Ground

Zygarde believes it has a duty to protect the ecosystem, and it monitors the Pokémon ecosystem to ensure that the ecosystem is not disrupted. While the power it possesses is overwhelming, this form contains only 50% of Zygarde’s cells. A Zygarde 10% or Zygarde 50% with the Power Construct Ability will be able to change into its Complete Forme during battle if its HP drops below half.

Name: Zygarde 10% Forme
Type: Dragon/Ground

When an emergency occurs, this form can take action separately from Zygarde 50% Forme, which comprises its main body. Thousand Arrows is a special move that only Zygarde can learn. It’s a Ground-type move that can also do damage to Flying types and to Pokémon with the Levitate Ability. After being hit by this move, Flying types and Pokémon with the Levitate Ability will continue to take damage from other Ground-type moves used in subsequent turns. Thousand Waves is also a move that only Zygarde can learn. This move makes it impossible for an opponent to flee or be swapped out of battle.

Name: Zygarde Complete Forme
Type: Dragon/Ground

Zygarde’s completed form is specialized for battle, enabling Zygarde to fight with its full power and fulfill its duty of protecting the Pokémon ecosystem. Core Enforcer is a move that only Zygarde can learn, and it can erase the Abilities of any opponents that have already used a move on the same turn that it’s used.

I hope the 'bus' evolves into a double decker! It must be hard to think up new Pokemon though - 850 now isn't it?

They are showing a lot of footage of kids out and about - I wonder if they will link Pokmone Go into this, so any you have caught irl can be transferred to the game - like the Pokemon games on the 3ds from the e-shop where you caught pokemon in AR and transferred the items to your game in black/white 1/2?????

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
