Pokémon Sun/Moon Update: Tapu Koko & More!

The Pokémon Company International have today revealed a fresh new batch of new species that trainers will be able to find in their journey across the Alola Region in Pokémon Sun/Moon when the pair arrives on the Nintendo 3DS worldwide this November. You can either view the video above, or if you’re supposed to be working and don’t want your manager to know you’re neglecting the Johnson account, here’s the details below:

Tapu Koko
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.

Additional, we have also received updated game artwork of Zygarde’s Cell, Core and 10% and Complete Formes!

Zygarde Core CellZygarde 10 percentZygarde 100 percent

A Zygarde 10% or 50% with the Power Construct ability will be able to turn into the Complete Forme when its HP drops below half. Zygarde can now learn three exclusive moves:
Thousand Arrows – A Ground-type move that can deal damage to Flying-types and Pokémon with the Levitate ability. Successful targets will remain vulnerable to future Ground-type attacks.
Thousand Waves – Prevents a Pokémon from fleeing or being withdrawn from battle.

Additionally, Zygarde’s Complete form can learn:
Core Enforcer – Erases the abilities of any opponents who have already used a move during the same turn.

What do you think of the new critters? Pokémon Sun/Moon will be launching exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS in Japan, North America, Australia, Korea and China on 18th November 2016, followed by Europe on 23rd November.
