Meet The Latest Additions To Pokemon Sun And Moon’s Rapidly Expanding Pokedex


Following the usual early outing of new Pokemon Sun and Moon details earlier this week courtesy of CoroCoro, The Pokemon Company has dispatched a brand new trailer that shows the new Pokedex entries in action.

Most of the new reveals here are confirmations of what was already reported to have been shown in CoroCoro, but being able to put a face to the name is always nice. First up on-stage is Silvally, the evolved form of Type: Null that looks much friendlier than its base form. As the previous reports suggested, the chimera-like creature can change between any type it desires by way of its special ability: RKS System. Silvally will change type depending on which item you give it to hold.

Next up are Hakamo-o and Kommo-o, the evolved forms of the Dragon-type Jangmo-o. The design for both looks heavily inspired by dinosaurs, especially raptors, with each having the special abilities Bulletproof and Soundproof. What’s more, Komm0-o can learn the unique move Changing Scales, which sacrifices defence for huge damage.

Other new additions include Steenee and Tsareena, the pure Grass-type evolutions of Bounsweet, and Ribombee – the evolved form of Cutiefly As expected, the trailer ends by unveiling another set of updated classics: Alolan Grimer and Muk. The latter looks rather psychedelic.

Pokemon Sun and Moon hit 3DS on November 18. Can’t wait? Next week will see the release of a special demo on the Nintendo eShop.
