Silvally – Normal

The Synthetic Pokemon Silvally is the evolution of Type: Null. This Pokemon changes its type when exclusive items are inserted into the drive on its head, and its somatic cells mutate and glow with different colors of light depending on its type.

Hakamo-o -Drgaon/Fighting

Hakamo-o is the Evolution of Jangmo-o. Hakamo-o dance before battle to show their strength, clanging their scales together. A solitary Pokemon that enjoys training alone, its scales are often torn off, but they grow back nearly immediately. Hakamo-o view the number of lost scales as proof of how ferociously they have fought in battle.

pkmn_kommo-o

Kommo-o – Dragon/Fighting

Kommo-o is the Evolution of Hakamo-o. There is a legend that says Kommo-o are covered in glittering scales in order to drive away a great darkness covering the world. This Pokemon can learn the new move Clanging Scales. When using this attack, Kommo-o scrapes the scales covering its body against one another, attacking with a loud clamor. After using this move, Kommo-o’s Defense is lowered.

pkmn_steenee

Steenee – Grass

The Fruit Pokemon Steenee is the Evolution of Bounsweet. The calyx on this Pokemon’s head is very hard, and Steenee attacks by smacking its opponent with it, combined with kicks from its tough legs. This Pokemon’s fragrance is even more delectable than that of Bounsweet.

Tsareena – Grass

Only the strongest of Steenee are able to evolve into Tsareena. A very noble Pokemon, Tsareena use their strength to protect and rule over Bounsweet as their queen. This Pokemon attacks with very powerful, majestic kicks and uses its powerful fragrance to mesmerize its opponents. Some Tsareena have the exclusive new ability Queenly Majesty, which prevents opponents from using priority moves.

pkmn_ribombee

Ribombee – Bug/Fairy

Ribombee is the Evolution of Cutiefly. This Pokemon collects flower nectar and pollen to make into balls, known as Pollen Puffs, which it can then launch at its opponent in battle. Some of the Pollen Puffs that Ribombee make also have relaxing effects or can relieve tiredness. These Pollen Puffs are distributed all over the Alola region.

pkmn_alolan_grimer

Alolan Grimer – Posion/Dark

As the population of the Alola region increased, dealing with garbage became a serious problem. As a solution, Grimer were imported from other regions and fed primarily on garbage, so their body composition changed—as did their form. What appear to be teeth in this Pokemon’s mouth are in fact residual toxins from the garbage it eats, which have hardened and crystallized. There are more than a hundred Alolan Grimer in Alola’s garbage-processing plants.

pkmn_alolan_muk

Alolan Muk – Posion/Dark

Alolan Muk evolves from Alolan Grimer. The Muk in the Alola region produce and store their toxins within their bodies so, unlike Muk in other regions, you won’t detect any unpleasant aromas when you draw near one. Alolan Muk has the same poisonous crystals as Alolan Grimer, but they are all over the surface of its body. Alolan Muk uses them to attack, just like other Pokemon use their fangs or claws.

pkmn_gladion_silvally

Two new characters who will appear in the Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon games were also announced.

Olivia: Olivia is the kahuna of Akala Island, the second island you visit across your island challenge. She is extraordinarily skilled and has served as a kahuna since a young age. Although highly skilled, she insists that she is just a normal girl.

Ilima: A graduate of the Trainers’ school and an expert in Normal-type Pokemon, Captain Ilima is considered a hero by the students of his former school.

Pokemon Sun and Moon will be made available in North America on November 18 and Europe on November 23.
