New Pokémon and Team Skull Revealed for Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon

Leaks of the latest edition of the Japanese magazine CoroCoro Comic (via Serebii) has revealed new information about the upcoming Pokémon Sun & Moon games.

Four new Pokémon were revealed: the Ghost/Ground haunted sandcastles Sunabaa and Shirodesuna; the pre-evolution of Bewear which is named Nuikoguma and still keeps the Normal/Fighting-type; and the Water-type fish Pokémon Yowashi, which can change between a Single or School Form.

There’s also new Alolan Pokémon revealed; the Alolan Meowth, with Dark-type and the Alolan Marowak, which will be Fire/Ghost-type.

The new antagonist team will be Team Skull, lead by a man named Guzma. The woman shown next to him is named Plumeri.

New Pokémon info will be available this Friday, with another reveal by the Pokémon Company. You can see all the new Pokémon and info on the gallery below.

    In light of ORAS’ poor post game, and Nintendo’s other fuckery (especially to AMR2) I’m happy to boycott.

    Parents can no longer go to the beach without the risk of their kid(s) being sucked up alive by a fucking sandcastle pokemon

    People complained about Klefki’s design, and yet it sold 14 million. There’s nothing controversial about a sand castle.

    Not that weird, design ain’t great but sand monsters aren’t anything unheard of.

    I’d like the sandcastle more if it had a more defined face in the evolution.

    Dark Meowth is pretty lame. Looks like a lazy recolor compared to the other region-forms which change things up a good bit more, even the Marrowak is pretty solid in that regard.

    To be fair, imagine if you lived in a world full of harmless sand ghosts. Doesn’t it make sense that unruly kids would try to turn at least one of them into a sandcastle?

    Poor Post game on ORAS? Delta Episode is like the best Post Game in recent years. Yeah there’s no Battle Frontier but I don’t care.

    I love Pokemon to much to spite Nintendo.

    Heck, I love Nintendo, too.

    Not gonna let a bunch of bad localizations on b rpg games change my love for Nintendo.

    How about their routinely condescending, dismissive, if not outright hostile attitude towards their customers? And the fact they’ve been actively campaigning against gamers basically their entire existence? Their recent overprotective policies are nothing new for them.

    You might have some good memories of Nintendo products, but make no mistake: To them, you are a commodity, an exploitable resource, and nothing more.

    I’ve finally had it with the lackluster rehashes and fanbase abuse; nothing they can offer is worth me paying for. Nintendo will never see another cent from me.

    I guess all that might be true, but I can’t expect a multi million dollar company to see my as anything other than an exploitable resource.

    I might be the minority, but I don’t feel that they screwed me in any way :/

    This is maybe the most laziest Alola form I’ve seen so far.

    Delta Episode was fine, but I really wanted Battle Frontier back.

    I understand what you mean by Nintendo being assholes in recent months, but still:
    1) Nintendo doesn’t get that much money, it’s mostly Pokemon Company that will get money
    2) ORAS really didn’t really have a bad post-game. Sure, nothing infinitely replayable like Battle Frontier, but Delta episode was fine.

    “To them, you are a commodity, an exploitable resource…”
    Unlike other companies? The only devs who truly care about players are indie devs and middle-market publishers (like Devolver Digital), who need a fanbase to make money.
    Nintendo have been complete a-holes over the last couple of months + the Youtube thing, I don’t deny. But still, no moderately-sized company cares for each and every customer as an individual

    my plan, if I have the money at the time, buy the game used and send the pokemon company a letter with money.

    assuming reviews are good

    buy used

    I like Shadowfish and Team Slav, I guess. But what the fuck is that sandcastle lookin piece of shit? Did they not learn from Gabrage Bag and Ice Cream Sundae?

    Did they really look at this design and say “yeah, this is a good Pokemon.”

    I’ve seen dozens of fake Pokedexes in my days, and NONE of them had shit like this.
