Zygarde, Vikavolt, More Detailed for Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon

Nintendo has fully detailed nine new Pokemon for Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon.

Featured above, an English version of yesterday’s trailer has been revealed, fully showcasing each of the new Pokemon.

You can find artwork and descriptions for each new Pokemon, below:

Tapu Koko copy

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.

Charjabug copy

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.

Vikavolt copy

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.

Drampa copy

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.

Bruxish copy

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 that prevents opponents from using priority moves that normally strike first.

Cutiefly copy

Name: Cutiefly
Type: Bug/Fairy

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

Togedemaru copy

Name: Togedemaru
Type: Electric/Steel

Togedemaru is the Roly-Poly Pokémon 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.


Name: Rockruff
Type: Rock

Rockruff has an excellent sense of smell, and once it has smelled an odor, it doesn’t forget. 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 that keeps it perpetually in a drowsing state, preventing it from getting any other status conditions.

Zygarde Core Cell copy

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.

Zygarde 50 percent copy

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.

Zygarde 10 percent copy

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.

Zygarde 100 percent copy

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.

Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon are both launching for the Nintendo 3DS on November 18th in North America and on November 23rd in Europe.

    Tapu Koko and Vikabolt are pretty cool. Drampa is awful, but everyone else seems okay.

    Great work on getting the info and images down.

    Drampa’s design shows the worst of recent gens. Older art styles had tufts of fur or feathers sort of detailed- now it’s just a mass. Is it hair? Is it tentacles? Is it clouds??

    Other than that, Vikavolt looks awesome. Not sure “Charger-Bug” and “RockRuff” are the best names. Wonder if Tapu is part of a trio that form a totem pole?

    I really hate how Tapu is just a bunch of senseless ovoid forms stuck together with a few noodles. It’s the worst goddamn shit, and they’ve done it with a bunch of pokemon now.

    I like the rest of them though. Even the fish is unlikable in a good way. I like designs that bring a different sort of personality to the game, they can’t all be cute round things and over-designed weirdos.

    All Bruxish needs is a pair of hoop rings.

    I like Togedemaru he’s like the defensive pikaclone I always wanted but he will most likely be trash with not even 1 evolution so meh

    Vikavolt looks cool, Drampa has a dopey but endearing design, and Zygarde’s complete form looks like a Gundam.

    I guess I’m one of the few people who likes the new designs of Pokémon.
