Nintendo has detailed six new Pokemon set to appear in the upcoming Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon for 3DS, as well as the game’s Hyper Training and Pokemon Global Link features.
Get the information below.
- Category: Strong Arm Pokemon
- Type: Normal/Fighting
- Height: 6’11”
- Weight: 297.6 lbs.
- Ability: Fluffy/Klutz
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.
Bewear may have the Fluffy Ability, a new Ability that no Pokemon has ever possessed before. The Fluffy Ability halves the damage taken from attacks that make direct contact, but in return it also doubles the damage taken from Fire-type moves.
Some wild Bewear use amazing martial-arts moves. Apparently the Pokemon learn these moves by watching Black Belts practicing 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!
- Category: Fruit Pokemon
- Type: Grass
- Height: 1’00”
- Weight: 7.1 lbs.
- Ability: Leaf Guard / Oblivious
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 swallowed 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 desperate 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 afterward!
- Category: Posy Picker Pokemon
- Type: Fairy
- Height: 0’4″
- Weight: 0.7 lbs.
- Ability: Flower Veil / Triage
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 Centers and hospitals, thanks to its aroma.
When attacked by other Pokemon, it throws its flowers at them to create an opening, and then it either flees or strikes back.
Comfey can have the new Triage Ability, an Ability that no other Pokemon has had before. With the Triage Ability, this Pokemon’s restorative moves gain the highest priority in battle.
- Category: Disguise Pokemon
- Type: Ghost/Fairy
- Height: 0’08”
- Weight: 1.5 lbs.
- Ability: Disguise
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 the rays of the sun, so it prefers to stick to dark places. It’s rumored 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 make friends with humans if only it looked like Pikachu.
Mimikyu has the Disguise Ability, a new Ability that no Pokemon has ever before possessed. The Disguise Ability allows it to escape damage from an enemy’s attack just one time, and then its appearance changes.
Mimikyu’s Pikachu-like appearance is due to its Disguise Ability. In order to resemble Pikachu, this Pokemon makes patterns that look like eyes and a mouth appear on a regular scrap of cloth.
- Category: Draft Horse Pokemon
- Type: Ground
- Height: 8’02”
- Weight: 2028.3 lbs.
- Ability: Own Tempo / Stamina
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 kick, 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.
Mudsdale can have the new Stamina Ability, an Ability that no other Pokemon has had before. With the Stamina Ability, this Pokemon’s Defense goes up by 1 when it’s hit by an attack.
- Category: Turn Tail Pokemon
- Type: Bug/Water
- Height: 1’08”
- Weight: 26.5 lbs.
- Ability: Wimp Out
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 that they find fallen on the ground. They also scavenge any garbage that’s been dropped in the sea, so they’re highly valued as cleaners. They sometimes carry pearls or other valuable items, so humans or Pokemon like Murkrow may target them.
Wimpod has the new Wimp Out Ability, an Ability that no other Pokemon has had before. With the Wimp Out Ability, if this Pokemon’s HP drops below half in battle, it will run away or swap out for another Pokemon.
—Hyper Training Maximizes a Pokemon’s Power
In Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon, you can draw forth a Pokemon’s power to its utmost limit with Hyper Training.
Pokemon grow stronger by raising their levels and increasing their base stats. However, their power is still affected by the individual strengths innate to each Pokemon. Now, with Hyper Training, Pokemon that have grown to Lv. 100 will be able to increase their individual strengths, which has never been possible before.
With Hyper Training, you can increase the strength of the Lv. 100 Pokemon you’ve been adventuring with!
—Bottle Caps: The Key to Hyper Training
Hyper Training is done by Mr. Hyper—a man who loves to collect Bottle Caps. He can be found somewhere in the Alola region. If you bring him Bottle Caps, which you can obtain in Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon, you’ll be able to improve your Pokemon’s stats with Hyper Training.
—Magearna Holds a Bottle Cap
The Magearna you’ll be able to get will be holding a Bottle Cap, a precious item needed for Hyper Training. With a Bottle Cap, you can perform Hyper Training on any Pokemon. Get Magearna on your team and try out Hyper Training for yourself!
—More Fun at the Pokemon Global Link
With the release of Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon, the Pokemon Global Link—the website that connects Pokemon players around the world—will end its current Pokemon Omega Ruby, Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, Pokemon X, and Pokemon Y service and will be updated to work with Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. New functions added in the update will let you enjoy Pokemon battles even more! For more information about the PGL update and the new features, check out the Pokemon Global Link (www.pokemon-gl.com).
—Host Your Own Friendly Competitions
On the new PGL, you’ll be able to compete in official Online Competitions as in the past, but now there’s more! A new Friendly Competition feature has been constructed that will allow you to become a competition host yourself and host original competitions where you set the regulations. Friendly Competitions allow you to hold competitions in two different styles. Recruit your friends and enjoy climactic battles!
In these Internet competitions, you’ll battle other participants you’ve been matched with and compete for the best rating. These competitions can be open to Pokemon Trainers all around the world, or they can be set to only allow pre-approved Trainers to enter. When the number of participants exceeds a certain number, Pokemon ranking will also be calculated, just as in official Online Competitions.
Live Competitions allow you to host a competition where you gather together with friends and others in the same space. The Digital Player ID that contains the regulations will be created as a QR Code, and by scanning in that QR Code, participants will be able to battle according to the competition’s regulations.
Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon are due out for 3DS on November 18 in North America and November 23 in Europe.
