The latest edition of Japanese comic magazine CoroCoro has been leaked and we are currently translating it for any new information 🙂

  • Bear is called Kiteruguma. It is described as cute yet deadly. It is classified as the powerful-arms Pokémon. It’s hug is dangerously strong and people in the Alola region regularly put warning signs out. It is Normal/Fighting with abilities Fluffy/Klutz. It’s name is possibly a play on words for “to wear” and “it’s here!”
  • Deflated Pikachu-esque Pokémon is Mimikkyu. It is a Ghost/Fairy type with the ability Disguise and is said to lurk in the darkness. It is classified as the bakenokawa (a veil hiding a monster) Pokémon. The body is black and the Pikachu-looking part is actually cloth-like and covers it from the sun. The article warns people about looking under its veil. It’s name seems to come from ears, mimic and ~kkyu (cute/timid sounding),
    UPD1: A clearer scan of a section with Mimikkyu’s information has surfaced:The reason that Mimikkyu resembles Pikachu…!? It modelled itself after Pikachu goods that were all the rage 20 years ago?! It seems it wants to make friends with humans just like Pikachu“.<3 PJ

            WEE WOO WEE WOO
            Officer Jenny is here to take you to pokemon jail for breaking the rules

          • Galemcaedus

            Excadrill mega Ground/Fairy, just confirmed by my source

  • I need to see this wannabe Chucky doll in movement. Very unappealing atm.

  • Galemcaedus

    ”People in Alola are scared of Kiteruguma to the point of having warning signs about it. It is really strong and can break anytthing in two. It likes to hug its trainers but is strong. Raising one puts your life in danger.”

  • Come on CC we need a Gym Leader, I can’t digest that no GL rumor.

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      It is quite odd that they haven’t shown at least one. By this time during the XY pre-release period we had I think at least Viola lol

      • NesMeister

        At this point in XY, we had Viola, Clemont, and Grant revealed

  • Haxford

    Okay so these Pokémon make me believe the starter leaks even more, because they look weird.

    • Galemcaedus

      Very different from what we’re used to. I personally love them and the Ghost/Fairy typing just really finishes it off for me. I will definitely get it on my first playthrough!

  • Galemcaedus

    ”Mimitsukiyu hates sunlight, preferring dark places. It is rumoured that the cloth covering its body is a strategy to avoid the sun. Don’t try to remove the cloth it is said that those that do become afflicted with an illness.”

  • EarthenWarrior

    UGHHHHHHHHHH this is what I was afraid of
    Only two Pokemon per Corocoro

    AND THESE TWO SUUUUUUUCK

  • TheSunnyMonster6893

    These make me laugh so freaking hard! They’re so weird and creepy. It’s so out of character for Pokemon(even the “scary” ones) I’m not sure I’ll ever use either, but they are certainly both welcome to join the Pokemon family hahahaha

    • EarthenWarrior

      THEYRE MAKING ME BLOW EVERY ONE OF MY GASKETS
      THEYRE HORRIBLE

      • TheSunnyMonster6893

        I’m sorry you’re having such a terrible time lol

        • EarthenWarrior

          TERRIBLE DOESNT EVEN BEGIN
          I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO GOOD POKEMON TO GET EXCITED AND NOW I GOT TO WAIT ANOTHER BLEEPING MONTH

          • Haxford

            I often find myself wondering what the heck goes on in your head lol

          • Ultron

            You’re the one limiting yourself

  • Haxford

    I have a feeling that the Pikachu-esque Pokémon isn’t the actual Pokémon, since its ability is called ‘Disguise’. It could be something like a Ditto or a Zoroark. Maybe we’ll see the real Pokémon later.

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      Well you can see on its body it has an extra pair of eyes. I think the disguise part is you don’t know what’s underneath lol

      • Haxford

        Maybe it comes in more kinds of Pokémon.

    • Galemcaedus

      Would be awesome, but I dont see that happening tbh.

      EDIT: I just noticed its sort of a Pika clone lol, maybe you have a point.

  • It’s honestly just kinda “meh”

    War really hoping for 1st stages

    • TheNintendoChip

      Same, but the ghost isn’t that bad to me anymore…now that I realize it’s eyes aren’t the Pikachu’s 😛

  • Natsu

    The bear is sooo cute, but it gives me a no evolution vibe. Hopefully I’m wrong and it receives either a pre-evolution akin to Ursaring or Beartic or an equivalently amazing evolution. The cloth Pokemon is soo weird and out of the norm for Pokemon – both of these are – and that’s why I love it! All in all, these two Pokemon are well designed although the bear could do without the headband.

    • Red Panda

      I believe it’s a red panda not a bear

      • Natsu

        Oh okay! Thanks! :3

    • Ultron

      I think it’ll definitely evolve. I’ll be a little upset if it doesnt

  • Vekxin

    Pedo-bear is officially a Pokémon! I’m calling it now

    • Red Panda

      But its a red panda not a bear 🙁 D: lol

  • Haxford

    My head when I saw these: what the actual fuckerdeefuck

  • Red panda

    That definitely is a red panda right there!!! Honestly i think they are building a kung fu panda team here lol

    • Haxford

      Omg a crane Pokémon

    • Ultron

      Hm..I think you’re right! Might have to have one then since red pandas re my favorite animal

  • Pika

    I’m really glad that there’s finally a ghost/fairy type! I really love it and will 100% have it on my team c:

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well I’m pissed beyond recognition……
    I need to kill something now

    • Chicolombia

      Yourself

    • Ultron

      We’ll get a ground type. They haven’t revealed any dark types and you don’t see me overreacting

      • EarthenWarrior

        YOU GOT PLENTY TO USE
        IM SO SICK OF WAITING

        • Haxford

          Dude omg go outside and get some air

          • EarthenWarrior

            I AM OUTSIDE HITTING BRANCHES WITH A SHOVEL

          • Haxford

            At least you’re getting some air

          • EarthenWarrior

            WHEN AM I GOING TO GET SOMETHING I LIKE EVERYTHING SUCKS SO BAD

          • Haxford

            That’s not GF’s fault that’s you not being open towards new kinds of designs

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            preach it <3 XD

          • EarthenWarrior

            OPEN SHMOPEN
            WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR A SINGLE EFFING GROUND TYPE OR DECENT FIGHTING TYPE

          • Ultron

            What’s a “decent” fighting type? What, are you upset that this one is cute and not big and masculine? You need to chillax, dude.

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            Kiteruguma would like to give you a hug

          • Chicolombia

            You didn’t hear? GF confirmed that they replaced ground type with Fairy type because it was redundant with the Rock type. So that’s why there’s been no ground types silly.

        • Ultron

          That’s because I allow myself to like pokemon of all typings…

  • Ultron

    They’re really going all out with the new typings this region. That said, not sure that I like that ghost/fairy one…

    • Galemcaedus

      I like it lol

      • Ultron

        Kinda interesting I guess. I like the typing at least

        • Galemcaedus

          Indeed, Ghost/Fairy is awesome imo. Kinda expected it with Lunala but still happy we’re getting it.

    • Wolfie

      i do like the ghost fairy, because look at it this way.. it’s a cloth covering the real Pokemon (what i think its a ghost child that doesn’t know how to draw and that’s why its like that)

      • Ultron

        It just kinda reminds me of a weird shuppet. I need to see the evolution

        • Wolfie

          same here, that’s what it reminded me of

  • Anon

    Hello i am back and im glad to say the leaks are now most likely fake (thank god) also this pokes look nice

    • Wolfie

      how do you know?

      • Anon

        No gorilla or capybara pokemon and no new feature etc and besides the rumours were simply off

        • Haxford

          Nobody said they’d be revealed this month

          • Anon

            Still fake, on november 18 i will look back to this and say ha i told you so 😉

          • Haxford

            I hope you will because I hate the leaked starters

          • Galemcaedus

            If Litten turns Fire/Fighting I will sue GF

        • Galemcaedus

          Lol you assume the leaks are fake because they’re not in this month’s Corocoro?

          • Anon

            The point is they are fake

        • Wolfie

          it’s real serebii already confirmed it, he doesn’t put stuff on his website that he knows is not real

          • Anon

            What? Dude im talking about the chinese rumors

          • Wolfie

            oh.. sorry about that.. yea i want them to be fake also

          • Anon

            It’s ok now that i read my comment again i noticed that ppl may get confused about what leaks im talking about hehe

  • Natsu

    With the addition of these two Pokemon, the number of Pokemon revealed thus far along with their confirmed evolutions is 31! 😀

  • TheHipsterRowlet

    Um… These two are VERY weird haha. I don’t really like the panda one, but I’m sure it will grow on me. However, I find the Ghost/Fairy one really cute!

    • Wolfie

      yea, the ghost one reminds me of shuppet

  • Ben

    I love that the new ghost is trying to be Ditto xD Intrigued to see if it can change its disguise for any Pokémon.
    Also: THAT TYPING! Immune to Normal, Fighting and Dragon?? Neutral Poison and Dark? Brilliant.

  • Kneesus

    they truly are keeping the designs simple. I’m not even mad, sometimes less is more.

    • Natsu

      The thing is, the more simple Pokemon become, the more believable they are and feel as though they’re real animals. I don’t know if that’s just me though. xD

      • zebstriker

        Yeah but how often do you run into a pink and black bear with a white tiara in the wild?

        • Oxenfree

          About as often as I run into a walking plant dinosaur. I fail to see your point.

          • zebstriker

            I mean at least that looks natural this bear does not

  • Ben

    The Red Panda looks like a Beanie Baby.

  • zebstriker

    Not really feeling the care bear but I’m interested in what that pokemon really looks like under the pikachu disguise

  • nb97

    Everyone’s hyped about/hating on the new Pokémon and I’m still finding myself wondering what the heck does Corocoro say about Rockruff in those bubbles.

  • Chicolombia

    PikaGhost is really cool.

    Carebear is pretty bad.

    Overall 6/10 ehh

    • Anon

      7.8/10 too much cuteness and simpleness-IGN

    • Tylotic

      I love pink + cute pokemon, but I am just not feeling this bear. Then again, Sugi is not involved with the artwork, so maybe in-game it will look better.

    • TheNintendoChip

      Just wait for it’s Care Bear Stare ;^)

    • EarthenWarrior

      The absolute worst bunch I’ve ever seen

  • Green

    If that’s the bear’s English name, I hate it even more.

  • Natsu

    I can see a running gag in the anime where the red panda Pokemon is captured by James and everytime it comes out of its PokeBall hugs James to death. Brings back memories of Cacturne and Carnavine.

    • Galemcaedus

      Screams James

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      I can definitely see that!!!

    • I approve of this.

  • The Lavender Swirlix

    That bears description is thehing of nightmares but hey its cute, and OMG FINALLY A GHOST/FAIRY!!! My two favourite types!!!! I really hope they both evolve too and become even more awesome

    • Tylotic

      I hope it has a variety of sheet options too.

      • The Lavender Swirlix

        that would be dope af like different forms like flabebe

  • Ithsme

    . . . I am at a loss for words right now. The ghost looks alright I guess, but the bear doesn’t transition from color to color well. It’s shape is awkward, and it looks very very poorly designed. The bear just isn’t pleasant to look at.

    • zebstriker

      My thoughts exactly

      • Ithsme

        They should’ve put fur around the neck or something, the transition from grey to black is disgusting. It’s paws are bigger than its arms, but not in a cute well done way. That white fur on his head has no depth. It looks like a carboard cut out.

        • GlaceEx

          Maybe it’ll look better in-game?

  • Anon

    At first these looked weird but they grew on already XD i like the ghost/fairy one, looks like what wobuffet shouldve been, and OMG ITS A RED PANDA PKMN THATS AWESOME!!!!

  • TheSunnyMonster6893

    They really are giving us some unique typings this time around. Plus the designs have been pretty great thus far(some may disagree lol) either way I think this gen is shaping up to be a very diverse group of Pokemon and it should be awesome lol

  • Efo

    I hope that disguise is a more permanent form of illusion.
    Or like it disguises as a random pikachu/ pikachu clone.

  • Ultron

    Never would’ve guessed that a red panda would be a fighting type. I hope it drops the normal type when it evolves. There are few times a normal dual typing are actually beneficial

    • EarthenWarrior

      Fat chance
      Pokemon rarely drop primary types

      • Ultron

        A robot can dream

        • EarthenWarrior

          Scientifically incorrect

          • Ultron

            False, if you knew anything about artificial intelligence

  • ShinyXatu

    Well, those designs are…interesting. They really have to grow on me. Those type combinations are unique, at least!

  • Natsu

    Changing topics a little, new anime news has been released and it seems Ash VS Alain will be two episodes long, the Malamar trio are returning or James’ Inkay is evolving, and Korrina might be returning. Additionally, the Team Flare arc will be concluding and seems to span more than 6 episodes back to back! #HYPE

  • Those designs… are so… weird. WTF DrunkFreak?!

    • Chicolombia

      Here we go againnnnnnn

      • Ithsme

        But this time I can’t agree more with him.

        • Chicolombia

          I don’t know why y’all gotta call GF drunk or high when most of y’all way too young to have experienced being drunk or high in the first place.

          • Ithsme

            Oh no, I don’t mean that. I just mean that something about the bear is off putting.

          • Chicolombia

            I know and I agree with the fact that it looks weird. But not with the “insults” lol

    • Green

      The artists were drunk or high when drawing these.

  • Galemcaedus

    I like the bear/panda. But then again, I like big, hairy stocky things in general. Also, Normal/Fighting is a first isnt it? Meloetta forme excluded?

    • Natsu

      I’m the total opposite. But I still like the bear/panda. Hairy + big, stocky build is not for me. LOL xD

    • Ultron

      Yeah. I like it more than the ghost thingy. Will maybe make room for it on my team if it’s decent and has a cool evo

    • Oxenfree

      Mega Lopunny.

      • Galemcaedus

        I dont really count mega typings, since its not default, but I guess you have a point xd.

  • Well, we can disprove the European leaker. No Gorilla or Capybara.

    • Ultron

      Technically they said video on friday

  • The Lavender Swirlix

    its official Mimikkyu is already my new favourite pokemon, its just so cute and creepy at the same time, like a weird hey you pikachu glitch or something, but cute

  • TheNintendoChip

    People are so fast!!

  • David Nixon

    what in the world is that thing!? you know the one with the skin.

    • Galemcaedus

      Its a Pikachu clone using a cloth to protect itself from the sunlight.

  • Anon

    I just noticed Mimikkyu as in either mimic you or mimic pikachu i also just noticed that the dots below the head are its eyes

    • Mr.Samurott

      That’s truee! So it’s just a black ball

  • Mr.Samurott

    Well! I dont hate the bear pokemon but I dont know, I just dont see myself using it. The good thing here is that pokemon is creating a lot of pokemon, hope they keep doing more. The one that looks like Pikachu, mmmm sounds good to me, wanna here how it turns like that, I mean, some pokemon ghost type were human that turned into a ghost

    • The Lavender Swirlix

      its the pokemon reincarnation of Hannibal…. lol jk 😛

  • Spetsnaz

    Well those are…something haha I want to see them in action, but interesting. Bear has to have some hawaiian lure behind it, and I wonder if the ghost fairy, amazing type btw, I wonder if it’ll have different looks

    • Ultron

      Maybe but I think they’re just playing on the fact that everyone wants to hug a red panda so they made it a fighting type

  • That bear is derp but kinda cute. And I can’t believe deflated mcpikachu pants is real but it is kind of cute too. I like these designs.

    • Galemcaedus

      YESSSSS I AM NOT ALONE@@!@513261531232#@@@

      • The Lavender Swirlix

        you are deff not alone <3 XD haha i love them too

      • Natsu

        You are not alone! Queue M.J. song!

      • Alobn?

    • Ithsme

      Wow complete role switch haha.

      • I like lots of the new mons doesn’t mean I like that rumored bipedal Litten shit.

    • Ultron

      Im surprised, I thought you would hate them.

      • I prefer that derp bear be quadrupedal but the ghost while not looking real at all is kind of cool.

        • Ultron

          Same feelins.

          • I hope they may still make a quadrupedal red panda someday.

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            it may evolve into one, but probs not because of the fighting type

          • I would assume the pre evolution might be if it has one. But I mean as a separate Mon later on because it’s not likely here.

          • Ultron

            I want like 50 red panda Pokemon

          • Is be ok with that lol

  • Natsu

    What do you guys think Fluffy and Disguise do? Fluffy sounds like a defensive ability and disguise could be similar to Zoroark or Ditto.

    • The Lavender Swirlix

      fluffy might reduce the damage from physical hits maybe?

  • Ithsme

    The bear is like you chopped two gummy bears in half, and switched the heads. That’s what the color transition reminds me of.

  • Skiddo The Survivor Fan

    My oh my… I wasn’t expecting something like this haha but I’m sure i’ll grow to like them more

  • Dicie

    These designs are terrible lmao

  • Mr.Samurott

    Pokemon should complete the 1000 ponemons xD

  • Oxenfree

    Mimikkyu is easily my favorite design of this generation, and among my favorite Pokemon of all time. . . Ghost/Fairy is the typing I would hope Lunala would grt, but I’m even more glad it was given to this disturbing beast. I. Freaking. Love. IT!!!

  • Spetsnaz

    I like this pic of the design, shows the other pokemon better than pika church part

    • Natsu

      0_0 Shredder!

    • The Lavender Swirlix

      I like its little stick that its using as a tail

  • Ultron

    I want the red panda to be fairy/fighting :I

    • EarthenWarrior

      See this is why I hate fairies
      Everyone wants them to be everything

      • Ithsme

        While I don’t really hate fairies, I completely agree with this.

        • Ultron

          It’s pink, cute, and wants to hug people…fairy type definitely fits

          • Anon

            Goodra also likes to hugs ppl, medicham is also pink, togedemaru is also cute and none of those are fairies

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            in all honesty though Togedemaru while not a fairy type is probably in the fairy egg group, just a random statement of the day

          • Ultron

            Thank you.

          • Ultron

            1) I’m not saying it WILL be a fairy type
            2) This is just a wish of mine
            3) Cute and pink pokemon often do turn out to be fairy type just because, so fairy typing is NOT a farfetchd concept to grasp in regards to this pokemon

      • Ultron

        Red pandas and even this design scream fairy type because, yes, pokemon are sometimes fairy type because they’re cute. And maybe it’s trying to lure people in to hug it

        • Anon

          Im sorry but pink does not mean it should automatically be fairy

          • Ultron

            Well duh..but most of them are pink

        • EarthenWarrior

          Well I don’t base things on looks alone

          • Ultron

            And good thing for us, you don’t design pokemon.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Oh please my ideas are the best u all know it

          • Ultron

            Yeah maybe you do have a few good ideas. BUT I think my points in this red panda case are fair. I even forgot that it’s wearing like a diadem, which is fairy ish almost

  • Anon

    Why is rockruff mentioned so much in these scans? It appears like three times in it

  • Ithsme

    I’m not trying to offend anyone who likes the bear, but as of now, this is literally my least favorite Pokemon ever in terms of design, beating the likes of wormadam and alomomola.

    • Ultron

      That seems a bit drastic when there are pokemon like ditto and electrode out there.

      • Natsu

        And Grimer, Muk, Diglet, Dugtrio, Magnemite, and Magneton. And Voltorb! Oh gosh, I love these Pokemon, but the designs were TOO simple.

        • Ithsme

          It may have been simple, but I think magnetite was well designed.

        • Ultron

          They’re pretty basic and lazy.

      • Ithsme

        Maybe it’s just because it’s the first day, but there are so many off putting things about it.
        – Color transition is bad
        – grey continues on the back but not the chest
        – tail looks odd
        – the white fur on its head lacks depth
        – its paws are too large for its arms
        – its shape in general is awkward for its body

        • zebstriker

          Not to be rude but it’s pink, not grey

          • Ithsme

            >.< Sorry, I just woke up.

          • zebstriker

            Lol it’s okey just felt the need to point that out 🙂

        • Ultron

          Well you might want to look at a picture of a red panda then because they have that split coloring and large paws.

          • Ithsme

            It just looks aesthetically displeasing to me.

          • Ultron

            I’m just pointing out where the concept came from, whether they executed that well is up to you. It’s just kind of meh to me right now, but I like the concept. I think they could’ve done something better though

    • The Lavender Swirlix

      I’m sure it’ll look better in game ^_^ I personally think its kinda cute though

  • OG Bulba

    Kiteruguma reminds of a red panda

    • Natsu

      Part of the reason may be because it’s based on one.

  • Prashanth Raghuram

    Till now, I’ve loved all the concepts for the pokemon, but none of the designs have really appealed to me (except perhaps vikavolt). Both of these pokemon have amazing concepts. I love subversive designs. The bear subverts the masculine-fighting type association by being a cutesy fighting type (Much like lopunny-mega subverted the male-fighting type association). The ghost pokemon also subverts the usual expectation of design by wearing a Pikachu-garb and its true design essentially being a mystery. For the bear, I really hope the evolution (if it has one) has a better design, yet retains the cute aesthetic. For the ghost, I expect the final evolution to unleash it’s true form (much like hoopa-unbound).

    • Natsu

      I may be (I am) biased when it comes to Pokemon as I cannot bring myself to loathe any, but design wise, I feel as though Sun/Moon has brought a new level of creativity and thought towards Pokemon. The process of designing Pokemon has been evolving ever since the first generation and with each new generation, the designs have not only gotten better, but more creative. Generation 7 brings with it an odd blend with an odd pallete to boot of mixing the simplistic designs of Generation 1, 2, and 6 with the bright, exotic colors of Generation 3, the over-the-top aesthetic of Generation 4, to the abnormal and strange yet creative designs of Generation 5. I concur with your opinion as it is yours, but I’m simply sharing mine as well.

      • Prashanth Raghuram

        yes, yes of course, your opinion is equally valid 🙂 but, I hold the same bias, so I can’t say i’ve DISLIKED any of them. I see the creativity in the conceptualisation (such as vikavolt charging itself with charjabug and then letting it go to become lighter, which is clearly reminiscent of a space shuttle; Tapu-koko and the chicken head meta-design; the new bear and ghost), my only problem, and i may be nitpicking here, is with the execution. I feel like a part of the pokemon aesthetic was lost in gen 4 > 5 transition, though paving the way for a new sensibility altogether, and then somewhat reverting in gen 6, and yet that missing piece seems to have been lost for me. Of course, when the game actually comes out, the uniquely specific sunmoon aesthetic will soon become normalised, and then my opinion will change, but merely for the pre-release period, i feel a little bit of scepticism is warranted (as was with mega evolution, which turned out just wonderful.) on that note, I’m genuinely paranoid now that it won’t return this gen as we have seen absolutely no footage of even old megas in-game. 🙁

  • Shady

    I thought this was a joke …..wat the hell?

  • David Nixon

    Mimikkyu is so cute 😀 *picks Mimikkyu up and cuddles it*

    • The Lavender Swirlix

      Mimikkyu will eat your soul

      • David Nixon

        Oh come on it a Ghost/Fairy Type it wont eat my soul.^v^

        • Anon

          If you remove the cloth it will eat your soul

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            and make you sick apparently XD

          • David Nixon

            That why I have a radiation suit on XD

          • David Nixon

            it’s a good thing I have a radiation suit to protect me from sickness 😀

          • Anon

            Hmm i guess its fine then 😉

  • Haxford

    What if the black parts of Pikachu’s ears are part of the Pokémon’s body?

    • Prashanth Raghuram

      I don’t think so though, since you can clearly see it’s cloth disguise dissonant with its true body, and the ears are very much clothlike in appearance

      • Haxford

        It’s still just a drawing so it’s possible

  • MenacingCascoon

    Ayyyyy my dreams are being more and more fulfilled. Ghost/Fairy type. Yasssss bring on the fairy combos. Bring on the Unique type combos

  • OG Bulba

    So what does it say about rockruff

  • FormicidaeNerd

    I hope Mimikkyu can have other Pokemon disguises than Pikachu =.=

    • Natsu

      There was an idea written here where you can have the ability to change the cloth. I don’t remember who said it, but I thought it was a bloody brilliant idea!

      • FormicidaeNerd

        I want that to be true. So badly. Even if it’s just between one or two more pokemon.

      • The Lavender Swirlix

        it would be cool if it had a bunch of different first stage sheets it could change into in this form and then when/if it evolves it takes on a simile appearance to the evolution of whatever sheet its wearing kinda like a wormadam thing, but cooler

  • Congratulations Gamefreak, I see a lot of sense of humor in these designs. I was missing more funny Pokemon, not only cute and fierce-looking ones.
    But I really hope that the Pikachu disguise is not the only one for Mimikkyu

  • Absol-

    The ghost/fairy better be called pikaboo.

    • Natsu

      Some of you guys need to work Pokemon (The American one) because you guys come uo with better names than them. I still want Rockruff to be Pubble and am definitely naming Rockruff Pubble when I catch him/her.

      • Ithsme

        Rockruff is a bad name. It doesn’t overlap letters or make a pun. It just adds two words and is simply increative.

        • Naoya Toudou

          That’s been going on by on since Gen 1.

          • Poekoko

            Mew+two

        • Craig Tierney

          Geodude, Sandshrew and Voltorb do the same thing. It’s still better than Seel, Krabby, Ekans/Arbok, Mr Mime, and so forth.

      • DefensiveBastiodon

        Rockruff is a bad but I like it better than Pubble.

    • Gikie

      THIS!

    • I will give it that nickname <3

  • Natsu

    We need a Cutiefly VS Mimikkyu battle!

  • Ithsme

    What if Mimikkyu is the real regional pika and Togedemaru is just a hedgehog?

    • EarthenWarrior

      Nope, the Hedge is the pika clone

      • Ithsme

        Lol it was a joke.

        • EarthenWarrior

          How the hell is that a joke

          • Ithsme

            I dunno I guess.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Well it ain’t so knock it off

          • Ithsme

            Little too late now isn’t it?

        • Gikie

          I understood the joke

          • Ithsme

            Yay!

  • FlamingFairies

    it’s shaping up to be the worst generation for me i hate half of the pokemon so far

    • The Lavender Swirlix

      I really hope your username isn’t hating on fairies…

      but thats cool, don’t like it don’t play it 。◕ ‿ ◕。

      • FlamingFairies

        no i like fire types and fairies i just couldn’t think of anything better 🙂

      • EarthenWarrior

        Fairies should be weak to fire

        • Gikie

          I’m going to have to agree. The whole fire resistance was catered to Blaziken lol

    • Natsu

      I’m sorry. I’m sure these Pokemon will grow on you and hopefully you can find the time to appreciate art. Best of luck to you on your journey towards Generation 7’s Pokemon acceptance.

  • EarthenWarrior

    These are just so freaking bad…..
    I fucking swear they better add a brand new Ground Type soon
    I’ve been patient with this entire thing for a long long time
    The botched Mega Garchomp, Camerupt and Mega Heracross
    And Diggersby is too frail to be any good
    Just everything is not getting any better
    And now these catastrophes are just putting me further and further for getting something I want

    • Mr.Samurott

      Loool haahhahaahah

    • MenacingCascoon

      Lol complaining like a little baby over something that will happen is not waiting patiently.
      Go take your whiny attitude to your pillow it’s the only thing that cares

    • Galemcaedus

      You genuinely believe we wont get new Ground types? Lmao mate

      • EarthenWarrior

        I know I’m bound to get one
        BUT IM SICK OF WAITING AND WATCHING EVERYONE GET WHAT THEY WANT

        • The Lavender Swirlix

          no one is getting what they want… people are just accepting and loving what we get

          • Galemcaedus

            I have wanted a Grass/Flying starter since gen 2-ish, so I got what I want xD

          • EarthenWarrior

            Mr wanted a Ghost/Fairy

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            yeah I wanted that typing but this is not what I wanted in terms of pokemon, I wanted something beautiful and elegant, but you know what I love this anyways because I have an open mind

          • EarthenWarrior

            But regardless you still got the type combo
            But me I still am currently groundless and the first fighting type is a bust

          • MenacingCascoon

            Regardless you got pokemon news which you wanted. Regardless you got a pokemon game after a year of nothing which you wanted.
            See how flawed that logic is

          • EarthenWarrior

            I wanted a Ground type
            The sheer fact Corocoro is a potential ally in achieving this notion does not change my desires which now have been quashed

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            yeah but they will deff give us a fairy and i hope for your sake (and everyone else) that you love it

          • EarthenWarrior

            Why would I ever love a Fairy
            They’ve caused nothing but trouble from day one

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            oppsss I meant ground type lol, my bad

          • EarthenWarrior

            Well now I’m being forced to wait EVEN LONGER NOW

        • Yo I don’t even know what I want so I can’t have gotten what I want. Except a quadrupedal Litten… but yah.

        • I want a mega froslass but I’m not complaining

        • Anonymous

          Shut up and stop whining, we are more than likely getting Mega Flygon after what happened in ORAS so please Just SHUT UP I am sick of you spamming. I’m sure ground types are on the way anyhow…

          • EarthenWarrior

            ARE WE? ORAS FUCKING SHAT OUT LIKE LITERALLY ALL THE BEST IT HAD TO OFFER AND GAVE THEM MEGAS
            AND THE ONE THEY MEANT TO GIVE WAS DENIED
            SO WHAT ARE THE CHANCES IT WILL COME THEY ARENT FORCED TO MAKE IT JUST BECAUSE THEY DIDNT DO LAST GAME

            I AM SICK OF WAITING

          • They couldnt find a good design. As dumb as that sounds, I’m sure there was more to that than it seems

    • Chaos

      These are pretty disgusting to be fair.

    • The Lavender Swirlix

      ಥ‿ಥ L O L

      honestly I agree M garchomp is fugly with that weird jawline, but I don’t like its normal form that much to begin with so blah

      but camerupt is one of my fav ground types and its Mega is awesome, same with Heracross

      Don’t complain about diggersby being frail just because you don’t know how to use it properly, heck if I can win battles with a goddamn sunflora I’m sure you can figure out a diggersby…

      Calm thyself earthen

      • EarthenWarrior

        They ruined Garchomp’s power by dropping its speed which totally ruins its potential
        Camerupt should’ve gotten drought and major defense so it doesn’t die in one hit or be too slow to be any use
        And Diggersby is frail and not fast enough to do enough but believe me slap a choice band and it slays

        And I will not calm down until I freaking get something I like

        • The Lavender Swirlix

          found this picture of when you’ll finally get something you like

          • EarthenWarrior

            What good is a skeleton if I’m not the one who killed it

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            its you

          • EarthenWarrior

            T_T

  • David Nixon

    I wonder what Mimikkyu evolves into?

    • I kind of think it will be single stage.

      • nb97

        I don’t even know. I kinda see it evolving but kinda don’t. It might be like Klefki.

      • Galemcaedus

        I think you’re right, but I’m hoping it’ll get a evolutionary stage. Ghost/Fairy deserves the spotlight

      • David Nixon

        Maybe Mimikkyu evolves into Something Beautiful. 😀

        • You saying it isn’t already beautiful?

          • Galemcaedus

            It is gorgeous

          • David Nixon

            ok or maybe Something Cool. 🙂

          • Again you saying it isn’t already cool? This thing is amazing haha

          • David Nixon

            well have no idea what Mimikkyu evolves into.

          • Who knows.

          • nb97

            Wow, you actually like something. I’m happy about that! 😀

          • Dude. I like a lot of these mons.

  • Oh dang that Ghost/Fairy is actually freaking amazing. Screw Cutiefly, I need this thing!
    The red panda is just.. Eeeehhhhhhhhh

    • Galemcaedus

      I need both. I will build a Fairy-only team and name all of them Earthen

      • nb97

        I approve this!

        EDIT: You should name the best one Ian.

        • EarthenWarrior

          And you people wonder why I hate everything and everyone

          • Gikie

            d°<°b

          • Ultron

            Then why are you here if you hate everyone

          • EarthenWarrior

            I fucking love Pokemon that’s why

          • Ultron

            Well there are other sites. Not trying to say you should leave but I’m just kinda wondering why you come here

          • If you hate everything, does that mean you hate yourself?

            (+5 brownie points if you get the reference)

          • EarthenWarrior

            I do hate myself

          • … oh

            well.. dont!

          • EarthenWarrior

            Well I do
            My body sucks
            My job sucks
            My family is falling apart
            And now the latest Corocoro is a freaking dud

            No possible hope

          • I’m not goona act like a therapist or anything, but try to find positives! Life is happier when you dont focus on the sad stuff

          • EarthenWarrior

            Feh life is happier when you hurt everyone around you until they’re as miserable as the guy who did it to them

          • Galemcaedus

            I have to agree with this. I’m not a bitter person or anything, but I generally hate other people as well.

      • Haxford

        I have never accidentally stumbled upon a more beautiful thing than this idea

    • Natsu

      Screw Cutiefly?!! WHEN LORD CUTIEFLY HEARS OF THIS HE WILL… HE- HE WILL SLATHER YOU UP IN HONEY AND FEED YOU TO THE FOREST POKEMON!

      • Mr.Samurott

        Lol

      • Gikie

        Dat honey gather ability lol

    • David Nixon

      looks like we got ourselves a cute War!

    • Green

      It’s nice to see some people who like the Ghost.

    • Galemcaedus

      Screw Cutiefly? I guess you have no heart for the cutest Pokemon in the history of time?

    • Haxford

      The fuck did you say mate

      • Mimikkyu. Is. Better. Than. Cutiefly.

        • Haxford

          No

          • I mean, hey. I love Cutiefly, but I just love Mimikkyu way more

        • Galemcaedus

          You should be jail sentenced for this. Criminal af

        • Ultron

          Bug>ghost

          • Maybe in match up but not in coolness

          • Ultron

            But we have the sun queen over at the bug kingdom.

          • Maybe Mimikkyu is the moon queen at the ghost kingdom?

          • Ultron

            No the moon queen must be a Luna moth D:<

  • Chaos

    Ewww….what the hell are these things

    • Anon

      Your future teammates 😉

    • Natsu

      Your new neighbors. Joking. A red panda that’s pink with a tiara and a menacing beast whose true form is too powerful and magestic for the likes of a mortal to see and so has taken caution to cover itself up in cloth.

  • MenacingCascoon

    Well unlike everybody else i still really like these pokemon. Gen 7 yet to dosappoint me(except popplio)!!! Please bring 100+more amazing things!! And you will compete with hoenn for my favorite gen

    • nb97

      Same as you but I like Popplio as well!

    • Ithsme

      At this point I’m starting to think the “all Alola Pokemon are good” people are faking with so many controversial Pokemon. XD

    • Chaos

      First time I don’t like Pokemon designs to be honest.

  • FlamingFairies

    i think they will grow on me eventually it’s just going to take longer than previous generations

  • Natsu

    When were Braixen, Quilladin, and Frogadier revealed?

    • Anon

      I think a month or two before release

      • nb97

        In September 2013. Pretty much one month before XY.

  • DefensiveBastiodon

    LOLOLOLOLOL THEY SO FUNNY LOOKING I like them. The bear doesn’t really look like a Pokémon though, more like a bootleg cat eared tanooki costume. I like the ghost. Wish it was Ghost/ Normal instead of Ghost/Fairy. Hopefully there are more designs for it than just Pikachu because that would be freaky as hell to stumble across

    • MenacingCascoon

      Honestly thats my only problem too.the ghost just doesnt seem like a fairy type in the slightest.

      • Bry

        Does it need to be pink-cute-ish to ve fairy type? Hahah

        • MenacingCascoon

          No because look at tapukoko but this just doesnt even seem like it would have any fairy type moves. Maybe like covet but instead of taking your item it takes your soul.

        • DefensiveBastiodon

          No, but it reminds me of the Pajama-Bedsheet ghost/Normal fakemon I made a couple of years ago. 🙁

      • The Lavender Swirlix

        idk seems pretty much like a fairy to me, irl fairies are like extremely evil unintentionally usually, but still, it captures the cute/trickster/evil that is a ghost/fairy imo

      • Galemcaedus

        Its wearing a cloth, so we dont know (yet) what it really looks like. And besides, Granbull is a Fairy?

        • EarthenWarrior

          It might be inspired by a Cu Sith
          And not for nothing even in Gen 2 it was classified as the Fairy Pokemon

          • Galemcaedus

            My point was , that fairies dont necessarily have to look cute or pink lol.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Snubbull is technically pink but I still hate all fairies under the sun and moon

          • Galemcaedus

            Except the Pink Armadillo Ground/Fairy, if it ever becomes reality 😉

          • EarthenWarrior

            I’d still hate it
            It would join the ranks of other ground types I never liked or are useless

  • Chaos

    I wanted a Ghost/Fairy, so I give them that.

    But seriously it’s like this thing skinned a Pikachu and is wearing it’s Skin..

    Some Texas Chainsaw Massacre shit right there…

    • nb97

      You never know with Pokémon lores. Phantump is a child who died in the forest. This one might be even more brutal! 😀

  • DefensiveBastiodon

    Also what’s in the little bubble about Rockruff?

  • Jbear11

    Why do so many people hate these Pokémon? There’s nothing wrong with them, at all. They’re new Pokémon, so if all you have is a problem with the designs they’ve been making, I guess you shouldn’t be on this website! 🙂 I personally love them, and can’t wait to add them to my them!

    • Chaos

      I wouldn’t say hate.

      Everyone has the right to dislike Pokemon designs. These just don’t really appeal to me.

      • Jbear11

        Disliking is perfectly fine, not every Pokémon has to fit everyone’s taste. It’s just the people who purposely come on here and talk about how horrible this generation is. That’s not what this website is for.

    • EarthenWarrior

      It’s a freaking derp bear and a ragged sheet

    • FlamingFairies

      i hate them for now but i will like them eventually i just have to look at them a few more times

  • I think the bear is the first bad design this gen. Bruxish is ugly, but I can at least appreciate it. This thing though? It just looks like a 4th graders fakemon. Its colors are really bizarre and it doesnt seem to have a mouth

    • Bruxish is worse

    • Ithsme

      The white fur on its head lacks depth and the color transitions look off.

    • nb97

      Just wait for the gameplay. Everything looks much more polished in the trailers imo. Those little scenes can add so much more to a Pokémon design. The personality they get with the attack animations play a very big part for me at least.

      • Yeah, I’m hoping it will be better there. Maybe the designer just had an off-day when drawing him.

        • nb97

          The other thing is that these leaks and screenshots don’t even give back all the details and colors. I find Komala’s color much better than it was in Corocoro last month. These details certainly matter.

    • DefensiveBastiodon

      I bet it evolves from cuddly to deadly. There’s no way it’s a standalone pokemon.

      • Haxford

        Feels like a Pancham/Teddiursa/Cubchoo kind of Pokémon to me

        • nb97

          Komala also feels like a Pancham kind of Pokémon to me

        • Galemcaedus

          Teddiursa 😍

    • Ultron

      Better than rip off pikaclone.

  • Gikie

    Mimikkyu is just an Espurr in disguise…OPEN YOUR EARS!

    • The Lavender Swirlix

      LONK! OPEN YOUR EYES!

    • Oh my gosh, I would love that

  • Natsu

    So it seems Braixen, Quilladin, and Frogadier were announced the first week of September.

  • FlamingFairies

    i’m starting to like Mimikkyu a bit more now that i’ve looked at it but i still feel like shooting the bear lol

  • MenacingCascoon

    I just hope these things evolve. I might use the ghost pikaclone

    • EarthenWarrior

      It’s not a pika clone
      It’s just markings that look like one
      Who knows they might let you doodle your own looks

      • TheNintendoChip

        If that’s the case, then I guess we can’t use it on Wifi lol

      • The Lavender Swirlix

        nah there would be too many with obscene things

      • MenacingCascoon

        I mean it looks like a pikachu.. But ghostly… Ghost pikachu clone to me

        • EarthenWarrior

          Well looks ARENT EVERYTHING
          IT JUST HAS A POINTED TOP AND SOME SCRIBBLES DOES IT MAKE IT AN ELECTRIC RODENT

          • MenacingCascoon

            Lol chill im just calling ghost pikaclone until we get an english name. So you better get used to it

          • EarthenWarrior

            They’re not even its real eyes
            Those two slits are

      • I want to draw a cute little face on it with a big smile then destroy the entire other team with it. Cant get mad at a happy ghost man

        • EarthenWarrior

          I would draw an anus

          • That’s the spirit!

          • nb97

            Don’t be so butthurt just because they didn’t reveal a Ground type.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I AM BUTTHURT
            I’m so fucking sick of watching everyone get what they like
            The bug/electric vivavolt, the plethora of Fairies and the stinking Tapu Koko

            While I greatly dislike everything outside Rockruff
            How’d you feel if everything was what you hate

          • Haxford

            Again, mostly your own fault

          • EarthenWarrior

            T_T

          • If you dont get alot of pokemon you like, just transfer ones you do like from XY/ORAS.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Because I need new and unseen things
            I only use new Pokemon from the new region

          • Then maybe use a pokemon you haven’t used before from other gens? If you genuinely dont like the new ones, there is no shame in transferring old ones

          • EarthenWarrior

            There is shame, the whole point of a new game is to use new things
            And if they already existed then they aren’t new

          • This isn’t gen 5. They have old pokemon in there too.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Don’t remind me
            I loved gen 5 since it forced everyone to use new stuff

          • nb97

            Well, I would probably try to love or at least like the stuff they’re throwing at me. I don’t really understand your obsession with Ground types and hate towards everything different but you could at least try to accept these things instead of hating them just because you didn’t get your Ground type.

          • EarthenWarrior

            If I don’t like it I will never do so
            And accepting them is accepting defeat

          • nb97

            That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. What the heck are you talking about? You’re not fighting anyone… There’s no such thing as defeat in liking something.

          • Gikie

            The fact that we have a low amount of fairies, I was prepared for the amount we’re getting. We have lots of ground and fighting already. There’s still a few months left – chill.

          • EarthenWarrior

            i won’t chill how could I possibly chill at this point

          • Gikie

            It is a children’s video game! Do I have an Fairy/Fighting or Electric/Fighting? No, but I’m not going be angry. Maybe it’s just me [and others], but I don’t get jealous very easily..

          • Gikie

            Ground/Dark?

          • Haxford

            Mine’s Fire because I just had taco’s

          • Gikie

            Is eruption in your love pool?

          • Gikie

            Move

          • Haxford

            Yeah and then my toilet uses Whirlpool

  • DefensiveBastiodon

    These typings are really good tbh

    The ghost is only weak to Ghost and steel

    • Ultron

      Aegislash loves this thing

      • Galemcaedus

        Aegislash is bae

    • Galemcaedus

      The bear should evolve into a Tim Hooper-Nick Frost hybrid thing.

      • DefensiveBastiodon

        What is?

        • Galemcaedus

          Google Tim Hooper and Nick Frost. Thats what bears should look like

          • DefensiveBastiodon

            Too grandpa for me

  • Oh dang imagine if Mimikkyu’s evolution is like No Face. It becomes this huge black ghostly beast with a pikachu mask

    • Ultron

      Or it evolves into a fake raichu

      • Galemcaedus

        Mega Raichu Electric/Fairy is what I want

        • Ultron

          Or just a dedenne evo with that typing since it already looks like raichu

        • EarthenWarrior
          • Galemcaedus

            Sorry mate, but Pikachu’s egg group is Fairies

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            not everything is about you earthen let people dream!

            I also want a electric/fairy mega ʘ‿ʘ

          • Gikie

            Off topic, how do you do those emojis? Lol

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            oh I have them all saved into a little note in my computer so I can readily use them when the chance arises XD. this one is my fav -> (╹◡╹)凸

          • Gikie

            Haha I love them

          • EarthenWarrior

            It just has NO EFFING REASON TO BE A FAIRY

          • Gikie

            Electric mouse…find a real one? Jk I’m pushing it nowhaha

          • Haxford

            I’m sick of this man. Just leave your computer for a couple of hours and come back when you’re calm. This is getting on everyone’s nerves. We get it: you don’t like this gen.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I don’t even have a computer, it died and now I have to shell out for a whole new one

            I am just not happy, I was hoping for something good but like always it just fails

          • MenacingCascoon

            Hey just ignore him. He is living a toxic lifestyle if he wants everyone negative like him. So talking to him will make it worse. Your a mod now and you just gotta know when to let things go and ignore. Cant change the mind of a wall

          • Galemcaedus

            What would you suggest for Mega Raichu then? Just pure Electric?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Yes just pure electric

    • Gikie

      Wobbuffet pre evo!

      Edit: naaaaah haha

      • Ultron

        Wynaut?

        • Gikie

          Forgot about that hahaha thanks

          • Ultron

            I get sort of a wobbuffet feel too though

          • Gikie

            Maybe that was the inspiration?

          • Ultron

            Hm maybe!

      • Galemcaedus

        Wynaut is Wobbuffet pre evo xD

        • Gikie

          I know I forgot and @Ultron informed me. Thanks though!

    • Galemcaedus

      Make it happen GF!

  • cant wait to see them in action! (and if the designs look bad for you maybe some gameplay will change your judgement)

  • FlamingFairies

    i still like this generation i like the region and all the other stuff it’s just the pokemon designs take some getting used to, well i’m off to a bad start in this chat goddamnit

  • Juan

    OMG, what’s up with this mouthless bear? Is Gamefreak joining the same ritual that created Hello Kitty?

    • Ultron

      All shall love it and despair

  • Gikie

    I want that bear. Naming it Free Hugs <3

    • Shady

      That name making him more dangerous.

  • Kyle Kottenbrook

    This is not the red panda pokemon I wanted. But it still looks like a badass

    • Hopefully we’ll get a good shiny variation

    • Ultron

      Same…just hope the evo is better

    • Galemcaedus

      Wow, you’re like the 2nd person (besides Auragar) I’ve seen who genuinely likes the panda.

  • Ttogepi

    Bears not very creative, pika ghost isnt bad. Then again lets see how they look ingame, thats if theyre real.

    • They are real.

      • Ttogepi

        I hope it looks better in 3d

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      Why would you assume that they were fake…..? When real scans of CoroCoro surface they are typically pretty noticeable. Fake scans are usually very obvious. These are real for sure

      • Wes

        Fake ones have been presented as real before. I do believe these though.

    • FlamingFairies

      yeah i reacted too fast (like usual) and said i hated them but i haven’t even seen them ingame yet

    • DefensiveBastiodon

      I bear that hugs isn’t original but a fish with human lips is?

      • Ttogepi

        I meant the bear looks very simple

  • CoolGlaceon

    Could a horde of Mimikkyu (or its evolution) be the horde of faceless men back in XY?

    • Green

      I think those were dead people

    • DefensiveBastiodon

      Oooh good idea!

    • I think that guy was just screwing around honestly. It is kinda weird why he even exists though

  • MenacingCascoon

    Well other than the pokemon themselves
    Any idea how their new abilities Fluffy and Disguise will work?

    • Maybe Disguise will be a double battle ability where it changes its name, gender and HP to match the other pokemon out

      • Erick

        Maybe, since now we can see which moves are effective or not in the battle interface, ‘Disguise’ keeps this information secret, or even shows random data…

    • EarthenWarrior

      Fluffy might be fucking fur coat ripoff but blocking special attacks
      And I assume disquise will temporarily change type

  • naranja blue

    You missed the most obvious pun of Kiteruguma’s name, “guma” as in “bear”.

  • Panti

    The first ones who look like shit…but better will come

  • ShinyXatu

    I’m starting to like these designs a little bit more. That panda is ridiculous compared to Ursaring and Beartic, though. I have no complaints about the ghost, it’s almost like Wobbuffet and Wynaut. Hoping they have good English names and descriptions that will change my mind!

    • DefensiveBastiodon

      Lol not a panda. Just a bear hugging bear

      • nb97

        Red panda

        • DefensiveBastiodon

          I don’t see it.

          • nb97

            The tail and the completely black fur on the front.

          • ShinyXatu
          • DefensiveBastiodon

            Doesn’t do it for me. I see the tail though.

          • Gikie

            I think the whole pink part (there’s a tiny pic that displays the whole back) is equivalent to the red on the red panda

      • TheSunnyMonster6893

        Why do people keep calling it a panda? If anything it’s a teddy bear and that would basically mean it’s a grizzly lol

    • CoolGlaceon

      Mimicutie

  • TheSunnyMonster6893

    Well assuming these are all we get from CoroCoro this month I guess we continue to wait for proof of the rumors to come. For Sun and Moon we’ve been getting the more important info directly from Nintendo/TPCI so it wouldn’t surprise me if they didn’t give the supposed info on the new mechanic to CoroCoro to release and just held onto it for the monthly website updates. I suppose we won’t know for sure until closer to the end of the week. lol

  • CoolGlaceon

    That panda’s just creepy.. Not a huge fan of it, hopefully it’s evolution becomes a bit less.. Oddly colored

  • FlamingFairies

    Still waiting for a Water/Fairy Dolphin

  • My favorite thing about all of these Alola designs is the people in gen 5 saying gamefreak ran out of ideas

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      People love to throw shade around. It’s like a pastime of the internet. If you don’t like something then it’s not a good idea!! lol

    • CoolGlaceon

      I mean the possibilites are endless.. We still don’t even have a Cockroach Pokemon

      • EarthenWarrior

        Genesect

  • CoolGlaceon

    Calling it now, Mimikkyu’s future Mega Evolution would just be the ghost within it but clothless.. and more powerful, of course

  • Mimikkyu and Banette would get along

    • EarthenWarrior

      Not until Banette quickly outclasses it and destroys it in a heartbeat

      • Nah, like they would be ghost friends

        • EarthenWarrior

          Not when they’re told to fight
          One shadow claw or Shadow Sneak and it’s done

          • Ok but they arent fighting because they are friends and friends dont fight

          • EarthenWarrior

            Not my Banette (if and when I breed one)
            I would use it to seek revenge on all the ghosts that have ever wronged me

          • This ghost was like, just born though. It can be friends with my banette

          • EarthenWarrior

            Nothing but I will go out of my way to inflict harm on everyone of its kind

          • That’s a bad idea though dont do that

          • EarthenWarrior

            I don’t care
            Until my demands are met everything that meets my gaze will be ensured a slow agonizing demise

          • Ok, I’ll prepare my fictional pixel monster to get hurt some how

          • Stevosan

            You have to go into Pokemon-amie and keep hitting it in the face with stylus to toughen it up. 😉

    • Wes

      That’s just what I was thinking!

  • TheSunnyMonster6893

    This made me laugh quite a bit lol

  • ShinyXatu

    Apparently that bear/panda is 2.1 meters tall. Dear god, that’s terrifying.

    • Gikie

      HUGS. NOW! lol

      • ShinyXatu

        If I see that thing in the forest I’m running away immediately.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Not when something op just kills it like nothing

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      6 FEET TALL!!!! THIS THING IS 6 FEET TALL?!?!?!? My god…….heaven save us all….lol

      • ShinyXatu

        Nope, it’s nearly 7 feet tall.

        • TheSunnyMonster6893

          OH NOOOOOOOO!!!!!! Whelp we’re all boned……good living with ya’ll…..it’s been a good run…..lol

  • Haxford
    • I NEED THIS

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      People be fast!! lol

    • EarthenWarrior

      They better be flammable
      I would put it in ghost proof cage and detonate it it from a distance so the curse doesn’t touch me

      • >ghost proof cage

        idk why thats so silly to me

        • EarthenWarrior

          Well because if I said a regular cage some dumbass dink would say it would slip through because of intangibility

  • Wes

    The bear is the first Alola Pokemon I haven’t liked, but I fell in love with the ghost at first sight, so that makes up for it.

    Side note: Did one set of leaks mention a bear, or am I remembering incorrectly?

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      Not sure…..I don’t think they did, but I could be wrong. I think the most telling thing we should be on the look out for is a trailer featuring the new mechanic. If that’s true then all the rumors we’ve seen could very well be true.

  • thegreatcarbinkle

    the bear pokemon? keep it
    the ghost pokemon? give it to me

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      nvm the ghost pokemon? keep it too

  • ShinyXatu

    Do you think either of these Pokemon evolve?

    • Ultron

      The bear has to.

      • Sunny

        It is ~7 feet tall; how much larger do you want it to get?!

        • Ultron

          BIGGER AND CUTER

        • EarthenWarrior

          Actually 6.10

          • Sunny

            Thank you, I can’t calculate right now because I am at work right now.

        • Claus H. Luíz

          To be fair, Bellossom became smaller than Gloom upon evolving.

    • MenacingCascoon

      The ghost pikaclone must

      • Ultron

        I tend to doubt it I think it’s the klefki of this gen.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Not a pikaclone

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      Given it’s height I’d say the bear stays the same. The ghost I suppose could, but I think I’d rather see it have different forms instead.

      • ShinyXatu

        I’d guess that the bear has a pre-evolution, possibly Normal-type.

        • TheSunnyMonster6893

          I could see that. I will say that every time we see a new Pokemon everyone jumps on and starts trying to guess what they evolve from or into. Not all Pokemon have evolutions. I’d imagine some of the Pokemon we’ve already seen are single stage.

        • If it’s Komala, I’m gonna throw up.

    • OG Bulba

      Maybe mimikkyu next evolution the cloth will become part of it

      • Gikie

        I wonder if GF will pull a Banette?

      • ShinyXatu

        Or maybe a bigger Raichu cloth?

  • Claus H. Luíz

    DeviantArt fanart to get you to like Mimikkyu slightly more.

    • That first one is so cool! The black and white makes it spoooky

  • Claus H. Luíz

    DeviantArt fanart to get you to like Kiteruguma slightly more.

    • Gikie

      Already liked this thing, but the first art is cool

    • Ultron

      Is…is it wearing a cape in that first picture? :3

      • Claus H. Luíz

        One Punch Man reference.

  • I feel like there was a children’s contest to submit designs into Game Freak and this was what we got. The children who drew these were such horrible drawers.

  • Armaggedon16

    Well. The first two Alola Pokemon I don’t Like.

  • Wes

    With the Big 7 reveal, I wondered what it is that Drampa is always protecting the children from. I think we know now…

    • Mimikkyu just wants to play 🙁

      • Sunny

        He is not talking about Mimikkyu.

        • TheSunnyMonster6893

          It could be both…..lol

      • Wes

        I was actually referring to the bear. I honestly see the ghost as a kindhearted Pokemon. It just doesn’t want to be exposed to sunlight, and honestly, I can relate. :p

    • Haxford

      Normal/Dragon and Ghost/Fairy
      Drampa seems not effective as a protector

  • Pokemania88

    Um… This is disgusting. it looks like a child’s drawing!

  • thegreatcarbinkle

    the bear pokemon is so bad like no offense it reminds me of anime for kids

  • Pokemania88

    Does anyone like these things? I think they are the first ones I don’t like in this region.

    • Mimikkyu is awesome! I love its typing and its design is really unique!

      • Pokemania88

        Hmmm…. I don’t know I wish it wasn’t a pikachu and something like a bed sheet or something…

    • Gikie

      Yes, my team now is Rowlet and that pink, emotionless, cuddly, brute

    • Wes

      I loved the ghost at first sight, but I actually think the bear is starting to grow on me. I guess my subconscious can’t stand to dislike a Pokemon for too long.

    • Sunny

      I think I am going to run Mimikkyu in my playthrough of the game.

      • Pokemania88

        It depends what it evolves into… I do like the type combination tho

    • I hate the dead looking Pikachu clone. But the bear is…. somewhat passable. It seriously looks like a child drew these. And horrible drawers at that. No talent, no personality at all.

  • thegreatcarbinkle

    when i said i wanted ghost/fairy pokemon i meant a witch or animal with witch traits not a blanket with ears

    • but is cute and spooooky

      • TheNintendoChip

        spookychu

        • thegreatcarbinkle

          ok i may catch one just for that nickname

      • thegreatcarbinkle

        if it was just the blanket with eyes i will be fine but is a pikachu clone basically

  • ShinyXatu

    Seems like we have a pattern here. 4+ new Pokemon (or other important load of information) near the beginning of the month and 2 new Pokemon in CoroCoro. Maybe that won’t be true later on, but it definitely seems that way now.

    • EarthenWarrior

      And the trend of Pokemon that I absolutely dispise
      Now I must wait even longer for a chance of something I like

      • nb97

        In the meantime you have the time to start working on accepting these.

        • EarthenWarrior

          Why should I accept something I don’t like

          • MenacingCascoon

            But you got a big fighting type. And its a bear Isnt that 3 things you like?

          • MenacingCascoon

            And it hugs very tightly something you always say you do

          • nb97

            It’s hard to believe that Earthen hugs someone without any intention of killing him/her.

          • EarthenWarrior

            It looks stupid

          • MenacingCascoon

            But i thought you were all about the lore of pokemon and what the pokemon actually does than its looks.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I am but I still have the capacity to hate something if I hate it

          • You seem to hate things randomly (except Fairy, that is at least consistent) so you just hurt yourself by locking out options you should have had. <3

          • EarthenWarrior

            What options
            The only things I’m compatible with is Rockruff
            Popplio is being threatened by being a potential Fairy and the rest I don’t like

          • nb97

            Dude, you’re actually pretty good at this. How many times do I have to deal with Earthen to be this good at making him disagree with himself?

          • Gikie

            They go way back haha

          • MenacingCascoon

            Im half poison type so immune to his toxic behavior.

          • Sunny

            Better watch out for Salandit.

          • EarthenWarrior

            No you’re not
            You’re pure Bug

          • MenacingCascoon

            After being attack with a lot of toxic i grew an immunity 🙂

          • EarthenWarrior

            Immune this
            *Thwacks you with my club tail*

          • nb97

            Nice one! 😀

          • Gikie

            The derpier the better

      • MenacingCascoon

        But you got a big fighting type. And its a bear. Isnt that 3 things you like?

  • Armaggedon16

    The Ghost is starting to grow on me. It’s a nice concept, plus a cool typing. But that Bear is Absolutely Hideous. It’s worse than anything GF has made before. It looks like something straight out of a bad 80’s kids cartoon.

    • Anon

      Looks like it belongs in we bare bears i kinda like him though its cool in its own way

    Well this makes me sad because i hate pikachu so this guy wants me to hate him aswell #pikachuoverrated

    • zebstriker

      Who actually loves Pikachu tho?

      • nb97

        Ash. But he loves Greninja more now.

      • Vlad

        I love pikachu

      • Galemcaedus

        Its my favourite Electric type

  • MenacingCascoon
    • Shady

      I am not gonna lie I was thinking about that too.

      Monzaemon x Kiteruguma.

    • Gikie

      If this bear becomes anything like that second one, it better be Normal/Ghost

  • That “Pikaboo” is fairly interesting…

  • thegreatcarbinkle

    How did this turn into that ugly bear tho
    https://i.ytimg.com/vi/b6dT4kyVUuY/maxresdefault.jpg

    • zebstriker

      Because it’s not based on a red panda maybe?

      • thegreatcarbinkle

        i am 57% confident that the ugly bear is based on a red panda. it has the same tail and face

        • zebstriker

          Like maybe 20% red panda, 80% carebear and 100% not for me

        • MenacingCascoon

          It literally has bear in its name. Its not a red panda. Red panda are quadrupedral

          • Gikie

            So are foxes, but Braixen and Delphos… I know we have others. I think it’s a mixture. There’s clearly a teddy bear there, but also has the red panda pattern scheme.

            I honestly don’t care because I’m using it haha

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            um. are foxes bipedel? also red pandas are part of the ursidae family aka bears

          • pyoopiechan

            Red pandas aren’t Ursidae, that’s just a straight up lie. They’re more closely related to badgers.

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            wikipedia told me that they are:(

          • Gikie

            From zee wiki

            And you believed Wikipedia
            Who knows some zoophile could’ve written that hours ago

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            yes

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            “the red panda is the only living species of the genus Ailurus and the family Ailuridae. It has been previously placed in the raccoon and bear families,” welp gotta go rip my reputation they were considered bears but not anymore

          • pyoopiechan

            Aw don’t worry about it, it’s a simple mistake. Sorry for calling you a liar <3

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            is okay<3 i blame wiki

      • nb97

        Of course it’s based on a red panda. The tail and black fur are the same…

  • Martin

    I like the designs. I mean, ya, the ghost/fairy type looks like a half-assed children’s doodle of pikachu, but its description is quite noticeable. And the red panda pokemon kills you with LOVE or just strangles to death. Either or, i see no problem in these designs at all. All of the Alola designs, descriptions, typings, and abilities have been something to look forward to so Im excited!!

    • zebstriker

      It’s a cloth it’s not the actual Pokemon. It’s hiding from sunlight and only wants to be loved

  • Leon Perior

    These new designs, like the poison/fire one, are demostrations of pure focused creativity; but the target of every pokemon (or group of pokemons) that has been made is different. It’s like the designers team is directing a bunch of very unique ideas and concepts onto a pokemon or group of pokemon in relation to new standarts of the consumer. This probably happened easily since gen 4 or 5, but I see it clearly in gen 7. The pink bear is an average “absurd/cute” creature, with that derp look that makes it meme material, and that probably is a mix of these “adorable” traits & brutal force with makes it comical. It’s been made for younger players with are more adapted to anime. The fire/poison one, on the other hand, is the opposite: a perfectly shaped, animal-esque creature with enough work and story put on it so it doesnt resemble a real life animal, not too complex to look like a digimon, elegantly and naturally colored. I would say it’s the kind of design that is made for old gen players.

    The fairy ghost is a marvelous concept. Some of the coolest pokemon made share the disguise theme, like ditto and zoroark. I’m hoping it gets a surprising evolution and competitive traits.

    • nb97

      You’re my man! I completely agree with all parts of this! 😀

  • Wes

    Is it possible that more is to come? I know that the last Corocoro reveal was only two, and the big reveals are saved for gameplay video releases, but isn’t three pages a bit small for a Pokemon reveal?

  • DefensiveBastiodon

    I really want time exclusive pokemon. Like Pokemon that exclusively come out at night and day. If we’ve had them in the last few games it wasn’t noticeable.

    • MenacingCascoon

      As cool as this is it just gets tedious when you are in the opposite time of day of a needed pokemon. So you just switch the time on 3ds.

      • nb97

        And that might not even work sometimes.

      • You can’t do that either since you’ll be locked out of all timed events for 24 hours starting from your first load after switching time.

        Though of course I’m not sure if they’ll remove the day/night exclusive mons from the encounter table.

        • MenacingCascoon

          See just makes more tedious

          • Agreed on that heh heh heh.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Well that’s the way it goes

          • MenacingCascoon

            Oh well i rather be locked out and catch a pokemon i want than not. Time based pokemon sucks

  • Wes

    The bear reminds me of something I remember doing as a kid. Did anyone else bite off the heads of gummy bears and “splice” them together? This Pokemon’s pink head and black body are giving me that vibe and I can’t overlook that now.

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      i still do that lol

    • The Aqua Flygon

      I still do that

  • jk

    Well, nothing lasts forever. They finally showed the messed up pokemon.

    • Well, Salandit was messed up already.

      • jk

        Oh, I found it really adorable. Its expression is hilarious.

        • Design yeah, but dex…

  • Mimikkyu is adorable!

  • Pile o’ Trubbish

    Mimikkyu has 2 weaknesses, 1 resistance (which is 4x resisted), and 3 immunities. I’m not sure how to evaluate that….maybe once we know what Disguise does it’ll be easier to evaluate.

    • Sunny

      With stab in ghost and fairy attacks, wouldn’t it hit any type combination for at least neutral damage?

      • MenacingCascoon

        Yeeeeup. Thats great this is why we need more fairy type combos

      • thegreatcarbinkle

        oh hey mimikkyu, legend in the making the most powerful pokemon

      • Sunny

        Wait…Houndoom resists both of its stabs. Only Houndoom.

        • Pile o’ Trubbish

          Too bad Houndoom is a piece of tissue paper…

  • Claus H. Luíz

    What? Mimicute is evolving!
    Congratulations! Your Mimicute evolved into Mimisock.

  • Pile o’ Trubbish

    If the bear gets switcheroo, some klutz shenanigans could be fun because I bet money it’ll have offensive stats that are decent.

    • DefensiveBastiodon

      We don’t know what its other ability does yet.

      • Pile o’ Trubbish

        What if Fluffy is Fur Coat in English and Disguise is Illusion. I would be 110% okay with that.

        • DefensiveBastiodon

          Then the Japanese names would match up from Gen 5 and 6 as well. I’m fine with them

  • DefensiveBastiodon

    We need a Pokémon based on Jason Momoa. That will hold me through until we get an Australian based region with a Hugh Jackman based Pokemon

  • jk

    That voodoo doll thing has a great concept, the design though…
    Will it be able to disguise itself as many different pokemon,or only pikachu?

    • Wes

      I think it will only be Pikachu because “Mimikkyu’s costume is based on Pikachu merch that was popular 20 years ago. It wants to be loved by people like Pikachu is.” I can’t imaging someone wanting to love it if it was wearing a Grimer cloak.

      • OH MY GOD REALLY? THATS ITS DESCRIPTION. OH MY GOD I NEED THIS THING

      • jk

        Oh, that’s so sad…

  • The Aqua Flygon

    I’ve grown to like the Ghost

  • The Aqua Flygon

    Oh right does anyone notice Rockruff is mentioned as n both pages with pictures of it

    • DefensiveBastiodon

      Yes. No one acknowledged it when I brought it up earlier though. I want to think it might be a new Eevee.

      • MenacingCascoon

        Dragon eeveelution please its the last one we need to complete eevee

        • DefensiveBastiodon

          I’d rather steel.

          • The Aqua Flygon

            If what that one person showed the other day Poison and Steel are next and rockruff is not an Eevee it evolves

          • DefensiveBastiodon

            Yeah Rockruff evolves but so does Eevee. Rockruff runs off until it finishes evolution, which means it could pick what it evolves into. Its just a theory. Besides, I’d be more surprised even we even got a new Eeveelution this Gen.

          • The Aqua Flygon

            Oh I thought you meant it was an Eeveelution my bad I had dream once that might have told the future it showed a Poison, Steel, and Ground Eeveelution on the official site near the trainers those were good looking Eeveelutions

          • EarthenWarrior

            I’d rather no more for the rest of existing time

          • Poekoko

    Mimikkyu is based on 20 year old Pikachu merch? BRUH GAME FREAK PUTTING THEM SLY HINTS TO THE 20 YEAR ANNIVERSARY BRO

    • Haxford

      Weird ’cause the Pikachu should’ve been fat then

      • DefensiveBastiodon

        It would look the same since the stuffing would be pulled out anyway

        • Gikie

          The stuffing was put into…the bear

      • Vlad

        Lmaooo

      • Galemcaedus

        I want more fat <3

  • Vlad

    Holy shit this is too cool!!!!

  • MenacingCascoon

    I like all these abilities dont get me wrong, but its so annoying when they have abilities for just one pokemon. Its understandable for legends. But i dont like it in other pokemon its just annoying. This doesnt take away from these pokemon i just thought that i would share how i felt on the topic

    • Natsu

      I think these abilities will be applicable to more than just one Pokemon. Maybe past Gen Pokemon will receive some of these abilities as HA or other Alola region Pokemon will have similar abilities. They can’t possibly create 100+ new abilities exclusive to just one Pokemon.

    • Vlad

      A pokemons special ability is what makes it valuable. If a bunch of different pokes could all learn the same amazing ability, it wouldn’t really be all that amazing now would it? This is suppose to be a competitive game at the end of the day, don’t forget.

  • thegreatcarbinkle

    me: mimikkyu is just a blanket with ears such an ugly pokemon, 0/10, bye pikachu clone

    me now that knows that mimikkyu typing is one of the best offensive typing in the metagame: WHEW! Legend in the making. Arceus is shook. 2OP4U. Smogon is shaking on their booties. Your fav wishes. Im mimikkyu trash till the end

    • No. Mimikkyu is an adorable sweet spook ghost too perfect for this world. It just wants your love

      • thegreatcarbinkle

        he is my dragon slayer. klefki is shook

      • EarthenWarrior

        And I’ll ensure my Excadrill kills it

        • This is the only pokemon I’ll get mad for. It is the best. Stop.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Make me
            Excadrill and some hard hitting Steel or Ghost types will be its downfall

          • Poekoko

            Seriously. Every Pokemon has a counter, and that doesn’t count as a ‘downfall’. Watch it out-speed Excadrill (Even when Scarfed) and can OHKO with Fire Blast or something. OHH watcha gonna do now?

        • TheNintendoChip

          But…can you kill something that’s already dead?

          • EarthenWarrior

            It’s not dead

  • Wes

    I just saw a post on Tumblr saying that the ghost’s English name should be Pikaboo, and I can’t agree more! Do you all have any other ideas of English names for these two?

    • DefensiveBastiodon

      I oppose because the name shouldn’t be based on a cloth it found

    • Vlad

      I came up with Mimichu but honestly Pikaboo sounds amazingggg

    • Natsu

    • Claus H. Luíz

      Mimikkyu -> Mimicute. (mimic + cute)
      Kiteruguma -> Huggerd. (hug + hazzard)

  • Vlad

    I’m so happy because just the other day, I was looking at fan drawn fakemon and came across an idea someone drew for a regional normal/electric rodent Pokemon called replichu which is a Pokemon disguised as pikachu and I was saying how great of a concept it is and now here I am and they’ve actually made this come true. If Mimichu evolves into something awesome, it’s definitely going on my team and could potentially be my new favorite ghost type of all time (sorry gengar). I’m so excited. Game freak is really knocking the ball out if the park this time around

  • PercyEspeon

    I think the bear is ok, for right now at least.
    Mimikyuu, I think, is adorable and I love it! 😀 It just looks so spooky because it took over old Pikachu merchandise and I really want an evo where we see even a glimpse of its real form, I think it would be kind of cool <3 It's definitely a consideration for my team ^^

  • Kiteruguma seems neat! It’s a cute Pangoro! I love the cute, but powerful motif. Now, Mimikkyu is interesting. I wish it was Normal/Ghost tho. I love how it replicates the deaign of Pikachu, with a extra creepy hand. Overall, loving the simple designs!

    • The Aqua Flygon

      Are these the English names? I hope not to hard to spell or say.

      • PercyEspeon

        So far, these are the Japanese names. Hopefully soon we will get the English ones

  • “Mimikkyu’s costume is based on Pikachu merch that was popular 20 years ago. It wants to be loved by people like Pikachu is” That line is actually not a joke?

    • PercyEspeon

      What Pokemon wouldn’t want Pikachu’s popularity? 😉
      I love the subtle reference with the 20 years ago part <3

      • I just think it’s ugly as hell. Lol. But the concept is cool I suppose. The bear is… passable… for now.

    • Spetsnaz

      That line made me like the design more haha

  • David Nixon

    what is Mimikkyu is based on?

    • It’s apparently based on Teru Teru Bōzu dolls (refresh for picture if you can’t see it). People in Japan hang them outside of their house to supposedly prevent rain.

      • PercyEspeon

        Es also the inspiration for Castform ^^

      • The Lavender Swirlix

        we used to make those all the time when I was a kid too, but I live in canada 😛 neat

  • PokeAlexa

    I think the new Ghost/Fairy type Pokemon English name will be Mashadow, if it is… Then the leaks about the final starter’s evolutions are true.

    • PercyEspeon

      I dunno, I think it will have similar stem words like the Japanese one, having something to do with Mimicry and having cute in the name.
      Marshadow, I feel, is related to something else.

    • nb97

      The trademarked name wasn’t even Mashadow. It was Marshadow and it was trademarked along with Solgaleo and Lunala’s name. If it’s something then it’s going to be the third legendary. Not to mention that the Marshadow thing was written with katakana in Japanese and this thing is called Mimikkyu.

      • PercyEspeon

        That’s right, Marshadow was a Japanese name! Forgot about that xD
        So yeah, definitely not Marshadow 🙂

        • nb97

          Yeah, Poké Co. USA, or whatever their name is, don’t trademark things this early if they do that at all. I don’t know if Marshadow will be a thing. There were several unused trademarks in the past mainly for version names like Pokémon Grey, Brown, etc. These trademarks however, seem to be right so far so I really think that Marshadow is real.

    • Marshadow was trademarked a long time ago with the two mascot Legendaries before their names were officially revealed as Solgaleo and Lunala. I don’t think that this will be the name in English. Probably for the 3rd Legendary in Alola of a trio that makes up of Solgaleo, Lunala, and whatever Marshadow is.

      • zebstriker

        The third legendary will most likely be Zygarde

        • Could be. But it also has relationship to Xerneas and Yveltal too we can’t forget. Perhaps it will be the trio master of both of the trios of X and Y and Sun and Moon.

    • David Nixon

      My+Shadow=Mashadow-Mimikkyu’s English name. 😀

      Mimic+You=Mimikkyu-Mashadow’s Japan name 😀

      Name Combo! XD

      • nb97

        Not happening. Read below.

        • David Nixon

  • Pile o’ Trubbish

    I wonder what the height of these pokemon is going to be? The bear seems huge but I hope it’s only like 2 feet tall.

    • TheNintendoChip

      I thought they had the heights? iirc Kiteruguma was 2.1m and Mimikkyu was 0.2m

      • Pile o’ Trubbish

        Oh I didn’t see the heights. I wanted it to be small..

      • Spetsnaz

        2.1m? Holy cap that’s a beast…

    • EarthenWarrior

      The damn thing is 6.10

  • Ultron

    Working on drawing a fakemon evolution for the panda but can’t think of any good names… 😛

  • Ithsme

    I just got an update for GO. I think they fixed the game crashing bugs! 😀

    • PercyEspeon

      Yessssss 😀

  • jk

    The bear is probably a standalone, so its base stats must be quite good already, and adding the good typing it has, this thing may actually be a good competitive pokemon, despite looking really (REALLY) bad.

    • nb97

      Looking at its weight and height it really seems that way but it just feels so… idk… incomplete.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Until it gets dominated by Psychic, Flying and Fairies and it has to watch out for Fighting too
      Unless Fluffy reduces the damage of Special attacks it will be extremely unusable

      • I pray that Fluffy is a variation of Fur Coat. It does look like the design of the bear could act a special cushion to reduce damage from special attacks. I can’t see Fluffy doing anything else.

        • EarthenWarrior

          Because this will go the way of the Pangoro which was my absolute favorite but was crushed when it had subpar everything

      • Poekoko

        I cringe every time you try to make a new Pokemon look bad. Mega Loppuny can’t reduce special moves rite? So it must be unusable rite? Wrong! It is a very strong and good Pokemon. Geez. Every Pokemon has a counter, you just have to work around them. Knowing you are a Mono-Ground user, I thought you would know that.

        • The Lavender Swirlix

  • thegreatcarbinkle

    the thing that kills the bear for me is the color block. if it was all pink or all brown or atleast ombre pink/brown i will be okay but i hate that color block, it doesnt even match

    • Yeah, the colors are a bit off. I can’t wait for the Bulbapedia page on this Pokemon to be published so I can know what it’s based off of. It doesn’t look like any bear I’ve seen. Perhaps it’s based on a stuffed bear?

      • thegreatcarbinkle

        i want to see the 3ds animation to see the front/back because they are completely different colors. for me is a bear/red panda/teddy bear mashup

    I bet the ghost is some kind of kid drawing of Pikachu that haunts pictures like Rotom does with appliances….

    • zebstriker

      It’s a cloth the real Pokemon is underneath it

  • Ultron

    Here’s my really bad fakemon for the panda…it’s fairy/fighting. I’m not sure I like the coloring that I gave it, but perhaps I’ll redo it.

  • David Nixon

    I got a question: how many Ghost Pokemon that has creepy information?

  • Claus H. Luíz

    Seeing as we have the new type combo of Ghost/Fairy, I was wondering about another new type combo we don’t have yet. One I haven’t heard people actually discuss about one.
    What do you guys think about a Grass/Electric-type Pokémon and what do you imagine it would be based on?
    Note, we do have Mow Rotom, but that’s a special case.

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      i need more ice combos tbh

      • Ultron

        Ice/Electric
        Ice/Bug
        Ice/Fighting

    • Wes

      There’s a flower commonly referred to as an electric daisy (acmella oleracea) that gives the mouth a small electric shock if eaten. That would make for an interesting Grass/Electric type. Its appearance is quite interesting too.

      • Claus H. Luíz

        Thank you! It seems you were the only one who comprehended what I was asking. Everyone else was mentioning other types, I just wanted to hear about Grass/Electric-types. I feel like it can result in a really interesting Pokémon. The acmella oleracea would be a great real world thing to “Pokémonify.”

    • EarthenWarrior

      Ground/Fighting mud wrestling warthog

    • Ultron

      Ground/Fighting
      Dark/Electric
      Dark/Bug

      • EarthenWarrior

        Mud wrestling pig
        Gremlin
        Mosquito

        • Ultron

          I’ll take whatever as long as they look cool and aren’t terrible

          • EarthenWarrior

            Sabosurge
            Electric/Dark
            The gremlin would be some kind of sneaky electro eater which is inspired by actual gremlins who sabotage machinery

          • Ultron

            That sounds really cool.

          • EarthenWarrior

            No
            SNAFFUSE

  • Ithsme

    There are three gyms in town, and each one is held by a different team, and is led by the eeveelution with the corrosponding color! I just thought that was a funny coincidence.

  • I notice there’s something off about the bears feet. One of the paws on the feet is white, while the other is darkened. Probably due to how the camera took the photo.

  • belmad

    I love Mimicyou, it’s so good. It embodies jealousy and I hated Pikapoop my entire life. Now I dream about crazed Mimicyou that are killing and skinning Pikachu out.

    • Ultron

      This isn’t your average everyday pika-hatred, this is….advanced pika-hatred.

  • Ultron

    Yay, Pokemon Go update to fix server stability and bugs!

    -Goes to Playstore-

    Not on Android yet -_-

    • ZorF

      At least you can play it ¬¬

      • Ultron

        I’m sorry :/ It hasn’t been much fun because I keep having bad server issues

  • NintendoPlayer

    The bear seems neat, but I love the ghost. It’s amazing. And it’s celebrates the 20th anniversary quite well. I need it.

  • I’m starting to like the bear. Seems like the design is both cute but deadly, hence the type and description in CoroCoro. And the Dead Pikachu Clone is actually starting to grow on me as well. Seems like an interesting backstory.

  • EarthenWarrior

    My dentist drugging is nearly worn off…..
    My anger slowly recovering

    This stupid bear better evolve into a even more dangerous hugging machine
    Because honestly it’s very similar to my Plush Toy Fakemon Mashmellow

  • EarthenWarrior

    DING!!!!!!
    Snaflux
    Electric/Dark
    A small compact black and yellow goblin creature with a fairly large head adorned with long thin horns that occasionally discharge a volt of electricity
    Long elf ears and a wide toothy grin with a lolling silver forked tongue with and equally long devil tail

    These mischievous Pokemon love to eat electricity, they often tear into machinery to expose live wires

  • The Lavender Swirlix

    A cool english name for Mimikkyu could be Spookiloth (Spooky + Cloth) it just rolls right off the tongue, but idk

    • Ultron

      I think it’ll stay as Mimikkyu, since it sounds like mimic you.

      • The Lavender Swirlix

        It does but I doubt it would carry over into the english game, another cute one I liked was someones suggestion of Peekaboo

        • Ultron

          Well there’s Togedemaru, which is an awful name and doesn’t sound like anything english. So anything is possible haha. But Pikaboo or whatever would be fine. It’s kinda cute.

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            yeah, I guess thats what makes it a true pikachu clone though, having its name be the same in every language, I mean Pikachu is japanese too but at this point we’ve just accepted it and often forget 😛

          • Ultron

            Hm, guess that’s why Emolga and Pachirisu have weird names too.

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            Pachriisu yes, Emolga no, Emolga is Emonga in japanese, since emolga would be too hard to say for Japanese speakers with the “L” sound

    • EarthenWarrior

      Spook lots works

    • I think Mimichu could work too. It even sounds close to the original name.

  • AdamH06

    Anybody remember the Tails Doll from Sonic R?

    • The Lavender Swirlix

      there was also one in sonic adventure DX
      I also had it in mind when I first saw Mimikkyu

    • Shady

      thank u.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Where’d everyone go

    • Ultron

      Ultron is always here. Lurking. Waiting. Calculating.

    • The Aqua Flygon

      Right here

    • Galemcaedus

      I was watching the trailer of Bear City 3. So much yum. And I also was contemplating whether to continue with my Platinum playthrough.

  • ShinyXatu

    I hope we don’t have to wait until the next news update at the beginning of August to learn the names of these Pokemon. Just like every other Alola Pokemon, they have grown on me extremely quickly and I want them to be officially recognized!

    • Ultron

      Well if they’re anything like Rockruff and Komala, we may be waiting a lil while.

  • After today, I decided to finally start to catch em all for Sun/Moon. Turns out that my Pokemon X cart is gone. I had every single mythical on there. I want to die

    • Galemcaedus

      This is why I store my mythicals and legendaries on Bank..

      • Looks like I’m buying bank from now on.

        • Galemcaedus

          Cheap af and you only have to renew subscription once a year really, and you get Transporter (which allows you to store gen 5 on Bank) with it for free.

          • The subscription fee is only $5 right?

          • Galemcaedus

            I live in Europe, so I dont know how much it is in the US. But its 4,99 here yeah.

  • Ttogepi

    Mimikkyu’s background could have been a unloved dead pikachu like the marowak ghost from the first gen, Just a thought.

  • Are we 100% positive this scan is real? An image of Rockruff with it’s special artwork appears twice with a blurb. Once on Kiteruguma’s page. And second on Mimikkyu’s page.

    • I will cry if mimikkyu is fake

      • EarthenWarrior

        I hope this is all fake

        • The Lavender Swirlix

          I hope you’re fake

          • EarthenWarrior

            No you don’t
            You’d be so bored without me to torment

          • Galemcaedus

            You both need to shut up because I will send the wrath of my Normal/Ground/Fairy Mega Teddiursa on you both and you will die.

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            good! I hope I come back as a Mimikkyu lol

          • EarthenWarrior

            You’re pitiful tiny body will be destroyed by my overbearing power

          • Galemcaedus

            Mega Teddiursa is immune to physical moves

          • EarthenWarrior

            Is immune to Metal Burst

          • Galemcaedus

            Yes, its also immune to super effective moves.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Alright there’s only one way to beat it

        • Nah, it’s probably real. There’s no Mega Rhyperior on it. :^)

          • Galemcaedus

            Mega Rhyperior is one of the things I need in my life.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Quit macking on my Mega

          • Galemcaedus

            But I love Rhyperior 🙁

          • EarthenWarrior

            But nothing
            Mega Rhyperior is mine to command and to command alone

            Get your own Mega Ursaring

          • Galemcaedus

            Ursaring is lame. Teddiursa is cutest thing ever and has a dormant power no one can fathom.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Yeah until you get burnt
            You don’t got guts yet

    • The Lavender Swirlix

      pretty positive its real though, I cant remember Serebii putting up something unless they were 100% positive

      • Yeah. Could just be an error on the publisher’s part. The formatting for everything looks correct too. And I’m sure both PokeJungle and Serebii double check everything before putting it out for any red flags. Heck, even Bulbanews has it up and they are stubborn. Everything all jammed together. Typical CoroCoro from the looks.

  • Haxford
    • Nice fanmade artwork. I didn’t really cool clearly at the special artwork showing the purple tail like extension. Gotta love fanmade artwork. Makes me appreciate Mimi more.

      • Haxford

        I feel like it’s his arm

        • It’s hard for me to tell. But I don’t think the Pikachu cloth is the real creature. There’s actually something underneath it.

          • EarthenWarrior

            No duh
            There’s clearly a ghostly claw stretching from underneath

          • Galemcaedus

            Did you only just figured that out now? I knew that when I first saw it

  • The Lavender Swirlix

    You know what would be the best, if Mimikkyu evolved from high friendship! like it finally gets loved and then boom it evolves and all is well

    • I’d love for it to evolve at least once. Fairy/Ghost type has so much potential. I’d hate to see it not evolve.

    • And then we can see what it looks like under the Pikachu skin

    • Haxford

      And when that friendship level is reached, he’ll reveal himself and won’t be needing an ugly cloth to wear anymore

  • The Aqua Flygon

    Alright I would like to ask now that they are here from least to Greatest who is your favorite so far mine is

      Everybody hating on Bruxish. Watch it evolve into the Gyarados of Alola.

      • The Lavender Swirlix

        I hope it does

        • EarthenWarrior

          I doesn’t deserve that treatment
          It’s the Basculin of this generation

          • Galemcaedus

            Basculin is a useless throb of shit. Bruxish is special

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            You’re the basculin of this site! lol jk, but no need to go hating on Basculine, tbh I think it has a lot of potential for an evolution, whether they will give it one or not who knows, but hell my basculine dominated in my first play through of White

      • The Aqua Flygon

        Oh god that seems likely by now yet it already shows better then Magikarp in movepool

            More like Vikavolt 1

          • Galemcaedus

            Its not my #1 but certainly in my top 5

        • The Lavender Swirlix

          it may be my fav type but I’m not overly fond of its design, but the game may change my mind, also Vikavolt is actually pretty awesome its high up on my list for sure

          • Galemcaedus

            Tapu Koko is literally an electricity shooting rooster, I fucking love it lol.

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            I love your enthusiasm ^_^

          • Galemcaedus

            I’m like Earthen, only my hatred is against Poison and Psychic types.

      21. Kiteruguma

    • PercyEspeon

      I’ll just make this super simple and say that Mimikyuu is near the top and Kiteruguma is somewhere between the bottom and middle. It’s still just alright to me

      • thegreatcarbinkle

        cutiefly

        • PercyEspeon

          Cutiefly is still top for me 😛 But Mimikyuu is definitely up there too, along with the starters and Salandit

      1. Rowlet, Popplio, Litten, Cutiefly, Komala, Rockruff, Vikavolt, Mimikkyu, Lunala, Pikipek
      2. The rest of them

      • But Salandit D:

        • TheHipsterRowlet

          I FORGOT SALANDIT! ASDHFU I LOVE IT AS WELL. IT”S DEF IN MY TOP 10

          • Galemcaedus

            Salandit sits in my top 5

      • thegreatcarbinkle

        1. cutiefly
        2. your faves

    • My previous list with Salandit and Mimikkyu towards the top. And Kiteruguma or whatever towards the bottom.

  • Shady

    Kiteruguma should be Fairy-Fighting type ….at least it should be part fairy.

    • Reece

      Why should it be? Pink doesn’t automatically mean fairy haha

      • thegreatcarbinkle

        earthen impact!

      • Shady

        not cuz it’s pink cuz it’s like a doll……normal type should be have more reality detailes.

        • Galemcaedus

          Its a panda, therefore it shouldnt be a fairy. Sorry pal

        • Reece

          No justification to be fairy tbh. It looks plain & simple, like a normal type haha. Also had no fairy context in its flavour text

          • Galemcaedus

            Plus we already gotten quite a few Fairies, and I’m expecting the 3 remaining Island Guardians will be part Fairy too. Other types now pls. I’m hoping for a few cool Ice types!

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            yes! i need more ice combos. more ice pokemon (actually changing ice weaknesses cause they are too much but that isnt happening:()

          • Galemcaedus

            I want
            Ice/Fairy
            Ice/Electric
            Ice/Fire
            Ice/Fighting
            Ice/Poison

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            ice/poison would be so fun to use tbh

          • zebstriker

            Wonder what it would be based on 🤔

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            frozen rotten food lol

          • EarthenWarrior

            That’s stupid
            It should be a Cold Virus

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            that’s stupid
            it should be frozen rotten food imo

          • EarthenWarrior

            freezing prevents rotting dumbass

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            not to cheese

          • EarthenWarrior

            *Rolls eyes*

          • Galemcaedus

            A Pokémon based on cheese would be interesting to say the least. It should be weak to Fire though. Grass/Ice? Fairy/Ice?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Dumb
            Already exists
            We just got a Fire/Water type
            Ice/Fighting should be a Yeti
            Very difficult to peg down a theme

          • Reece

            And we got a Ghost/Fairy which is hella cool, few weaknesses and 3 resistances (hopefully it’ll evolve into somin cool & it’ll have a place on my team)
            I do want some ice types!

          • Ultron

            You could say the exact same about mimikkyu lmao. Fairy type is weird. Often times they don’t really have justifications for being fairies other than “just cause”.

          • Shady

            I didn’t know this type didn’t convince me at all ….wat about normal – fairy …….well wat I mean by reality stuff most of normal pkmn in gen 1 like Tauros and Khanga ,Pidgeot….etc …Pyroar and Bouffalant all them r look like real animal.

      • Ultron

        1. Cute
        2. Wants Hugs
        3. Tiara
        4. Pink

        Like it or not, pink and cute are similarities among fairy types. Cutiefly is a fairy type because it’s “cute”. Almost every fairy type is pink…

    • Chaos

      No

      • Shady

        Yes

        • thegreatcarbinkle

          maybe

    • Ultron

      That’s what I’ve been saying.

      • EarthenWarrior

        And that’s what causes mental anguish

        • Ultron

          Easy for you to say, Mr. Biased.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Well do I not say that everyone wants everything to be a fairy
            Do I not?
            Which is something that pisses me off

            You are further perpetuating the stereotypical fan desire for Fairy everything

          • Ultron

            That’s absolutely not true, but alright. There are a few pokemon that I see and think “hm, fairy type could work,” while you’re over in the corner being pessimistic and stubborn because you dislike an entire type of pokemon and wish they didn’t exist. But go on, presume to know anything about what I want.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Doesn’t matter
            You already chalked up a mark for people wanting fairies

          • Ultron

            So because other people and I want something different than you that’s not okay? You really need to think about how you act around people that have differing desires because often times you meet them with hostility and it’s not fun to be around. I’ve presented my case for why I think it *could* *maybe* be a fairy type and you don’t even bother to counter in any sort of decent way.

          • Poekoko

            MAH BOI! Well said.

  • Reece

    Sun & moon double pack in the US & Canada
    Now for Europe to get it please cause I’ll end up getting both eventually anyway

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      Yeah….I gotta say I really want the steel case…..plus I was also thinking about getting both too……..I usually do. I just hope my Amazon Prime can still be active then so I can get it at launch. I’m still technically on my student account even though I just graduated so I guess I’ll have to see if the cost changes when it tries to re up. If I can squeeze at least one more year out of my student Prime account then I’ll be goo otherwise I’ll have to just get Moon from Best Buy and weigh my options at a later time…..lol

  • CBobbert

    I’m not the only one who realizes that Mimikkyu is literally “mimic you,” right?

    • zebstriker

      Nope, think most of us got that

      • thegreatcarbinkle

        i- i- i didnt

        • CBobbert

          Not even the article mentioned it. I was hoping to see “mimic you” instead of just the straw-grasping explanation already there :’)

    • thegreatcarbinkle
    • Shady

      That mean he could be have more forms ……wat about mimicking Greninja the most popular one.

      • Galemcaedus

        No one touch my Greninja, NOT HAPPENING!

        • Shady

          It’s ok don’t worry …wat about Teddiursa then?

          • Galemcaedus

            NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. TEDDIURSA IS THE GREATEST THING EVER MADE BY MANKIND. I WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO DEFILE IT FOR SOME MESSED UP GHOST PIKACHU DOLL CLONE

            u should choose one of them.

          • Galemcaedus

            NO!

    • PercyEspeon

      I think it also could be, like the article says, part cute as well (since it takes an old Pikachu cloth and wants to be as loved as Pikachu plus when putting cute in katakana it is kyuuto)
      But you =works too and fits with its ability

    • Ultron

      I realized it a bit ago, and I rather like it.

  • The Lavender Swirlix

    ok i have a question for all you nay-sayers out there that give reasons as to why certain pokemon shouldn’t be fairies, but i have yet to hear why you think pokemon should? what to you makes a fairy type pokemon? (earthen i stg if you say something stupid… i want a legit answer)

    • Galemcaedus

      Why do you think a certain Pokemon should be a fairy? And dont say cause its pink and super cute lol.

      • The Lavender Swirlix

        I have given my reasons here many times as to why certain pokemon should be fairy… and not once has it been because they are cute or pink… so…. (also fyi I’m not in the slightest saying that the bear should be fairy I’m just curious as to what you guys think makes a fairy a fairy)

        • Galemcaedus

          The Pokémon has to radiate magic to be a fairy imo, for starters. I’ve seen many people here saying a certain Pokemon should be fairy because of a certain trait in its design. Like, I’ve seen people saying Popplio should be Fairy, because it has a pink nose.

          • EarthenWarrior

            That kinda stuff just boils my blood

          • Galemcaedus

            Radiate as in being based on a magical creature or something like that.

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            I know what radiate means -_-

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            while I do hope Popplio should become a fairy type, at its point in its design it doesn’t really show any signs of becoming one… perhaps once it reaches its second stage maybe, but I try not to say stupid things such as that, because well, what evidence is that

          • EarthenWarrior

            Well Quilladin was a shocker for everyone
            And Braixen

      • TheHipsterRowlet

        Because it’s pink and super cute… I’m kidding.
        As long as that one Pokemon is based on a fairy tale/mythical creature it’s okay, I guess.

      • PercyEspeon

        There’s a lot of different interpretations for fairies, and not just the pink and cute ones, like nature fairies and the dark, mischievous ones.
        I kind of want more of the latter ones, so people will stop associating Fairy type with cute/pink/good fairies.

        • Galemcaedus

          Mashadow will be Dark/Fairy, archive/screenshot this reply.

      Well to me they need a Sprite like origin or nymph
      I try not to let too many mythical creatures dominate this
      Magic qualities
      Although I try not to let this dictate most decisions but some kind of “fairy” aura, but not like pink or cute or something similar

    • Shady

      Good question I think they represent loving nature ,dreams and wishes fantasy and imagination …fairy tale characters though.
      I am ready to give u an example if u want?

      • Galemcaedus

        Fairies can be evil too. Common misconception they are good beings by default.

        • The Lavender Swirlix

          in most stories and folklore they tend to be either evil by nature or really just morally ambiguous really, they have the mentality of children often and that can lead to some bad things

        • Shady

          not really….don’t forget Granbull and Mawile…….I believe that Slurpuff is evil too anything made by sweet is tricky and evil …like witch house.

          • Galemcaedus

            What?

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            unburden slurpuff is evil man

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            :3 I have one, try an Unburden slurpluff with bellydrum while holding a good berry, its a force to be reckoned with

          • EarthenWarrior

            Granbull was the Fairy Pokemon before all this began
            Mawile is the two faced woman

            And if the Fairy Floss Swirlix was already a fairy to start with why would its evolution be non fairy

          • Shady

            Wat the hell r u trying to approve ?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Basic facts

          • Shady

            I really didn’t r u trying to agree or disagree with me ?

      • The Lavender Swirlix

        very valid points as well

      • Ultron

        Fairy tale you say?

        -looks at panda pokemon-
        -sees tiara-

        :I

        • Shady

          did u meant the new one?

          • Ultron

            Yes

          • Shady

            I was mention that before it should be part fairy.

    • Chaos

      Personally I think whatever Gamefreak decide to make a Fairy Type should be a Fairy Type and whatever they don’t decide to make a Fairy Type shouldn’t be a Fairy Type.

      • EarthenWarrior

        That idea makes me cringe so hard
        They do everything with tons of research behind it (except Azumarill)

      • Ultron

        Exactly. GF should be able to do whatever they want with fairy type, considering that’s what they’ve already done.

    • The Lavender Swirlix

      @Galemcaedus:disqus

      To me, what makes a fairy pokemon, is a pokemon with several different traits and have a sense of whimsy, elegance, or even a trickster or mischievous nature, and I by no means see fairies as cute and cuddly in temperament, they often look one way on the outside but they are far from good irl.

      But I think you get my point, or should I go on?

      • Shady

        Agree but I wouldn’t like all these fairies being cute we should have something like ghoul or any mythical creatures.

        • The Lavender Swirlix

          well I mean now we have Mimikkyu

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      fairy pokemon should be based on lore. all those mythological stories. think the grimmes brothers. but if they lack that. i would be like oh pink/cute? fairy

    • Ultron

      Not a naysayer (although I think they’re a bit OP and should’ve been weak to bug) but let’s look at the facts:
      -Clefairy: Fairy because it literally has “fairy” in the name. Other possible reasons: cute, pink, has little wings, possible moon connection.
      -Jigglypuff: Pink and cute
      -Mr. Mime: Pink
      -Azumarill: Cute rabbit
      -Snubbull: Pink
      -Whimsicott: Based on legend of little creatures that live in forests, also whimsical in the name
      -Aromatisse: Pink
      -Swirlix: Fairy floss, so the type fits the name like Clefairy
      -Cutiefly: Tiny and cute

      So in point: Some are fairy type because they’re based on fairy legend or because of name influences. Some are fairy because they’re pink or cute. Those are the facts, so read them and weep fairy deniers.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Don’t forget most of those are half fairy not primarily

        • Ultron

          Well yes, but they retconned them. They didn’t have to do that, but they still did, which makes them valid points.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Ehhhhhhhh

          • Ultron

            Don’t give me that. That’s bias creeping in.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I still feel they could’ve left Marill out of it also Mr Mime
            The rest get a pass

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            you can have Mr. Mime, the fairy trainers don’t want it

          • EarthenWarrior

            I would chain it to a radiatior in some random building

          • Ultron

            But it’s a psychic type, it could just undo it

          • EarthenWarrior

            Not anymore
            Fairies are weak against iron

          • Ultron

            I mean it’s not like kryptonite 😛

          • EarthenWarrior

            It poisons and weakens them
            And it’s arms are crossed unable to move them
            It’s not like it can telekinetically undo chains in a dark humid basement

          • Ultron

            I feel we’re straying into dark territory here

          • EarthenWarrior

            Yeah my territory

          • Galemcaedus

            Krookodile territory

          • Ultron

            Snubbull and Granbull as well for me. It maybe could’ve been in reference to some ancient legendary dog creature, but honestly I think that’s just a connection drawn after the fact (of them giving it fairy type)

          • EarthenWarrior

            They were the Fairy Pokemon in gen 2

          • Ultron

            Yeah but it’s kind of weird…the inspiration just appears to be dogs dressed up in little clothes. Plus their movepool back then doesn’t suggest anything fairy like, nor do the dex entries from gen 2.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Well don’t forget Cu Siths
            But whatever it was during the stupid ages

          • Ultron

            Yeah that’s the thing I was talking about. I just can’t see the connection to snubbull and think it’s just bs reasoning for the retcon.

      • Galemcaedus

        Klefki, enchanted keychain.

        • PercyEspeon

          Klefki is actually the closest to a mischievous fairy that we’ve gotten so far and that’s why I respect it :3

          • Galemcaedus

            Klefki is adorable af. I wanna hug it till it dies

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            It jingles its keys at you in an aggressive manner when threatened XD that right there is how it has my respect because its hilarious

          • PercyEspeon

            Yeah, es like ‘mofo you wanna go, I got keys to cut you up with, don’t even try to get on my bad side right now’

          • TheHipsterRowlet

        • Ultron

          Yeah I didn’t do all of them or it would’ve taken forever, but klefki makes sense

        • Rockcrawdaunt

          Exactly, enchanted is for fairy as haunted is for ghost.

    • The Aqua Flygon

      I like Fairy’s but I’m not obsessed yet I see this region being majority of Fairy, Electric, and Steel types

      • The Lavender Swirlix

        we’ve only seen a few pokemon so far still I’m pretty sure, based on it being hawaii I would say the majority of pokemon are going to be water, grass and yes maybe fairy because its new… but why electric or steel? 😛

        • The Aqua Flygon

          They seem to be reoccurring types for this region Grubbin line, Togedemaro just seems they will be very common types here

  • Green

    I made an evolution for Mimikkyu. Here’s a Pokedex Entry. Here’s a Pokedex entry I made: In Mimikkyu’s desperate pursuit for love from anyone it could find, it tried to find a way to look even more like the beloved Pokémon it was trying to look like. In a reaction to a dusk stone and lack of friendship, it tried to morph into a Taichung while evolving, only to become a horrible monster with only a small cloth to hide it’s face. (Ok, I’ll admit, it’s more like a bio)

      • Green

        Wow thanks. Wait… little boy? I’m 13 😉

        • Shady

          I remember u was mention that’s u only 14.

          • Green

            I’m younger than that actually. I’m 13……………………………. and 2 months

          • The Aqua Flygon

            Younger than me I though I wasn’t the youngest

          • Green

            How old are you?

          • The Aqua Flygon

            15 and 1/2

          • Green

            Oh. Cool. It’s nice to know there’s someone who’s kind of close to my age. Also you’re not 2nd youngest either. Poekoko is 13 and 10 months old. We go to school together.

          • The Aqua Flygon

            Oh cool

          • Shady

            So I can call u lttle boy right ?

          • Green

            Sure. I guess I’m relatively a little boy to everyone here (Except Poekoko and AquaFlygon)

    • Ultron

      That might give me nightmares, but cool.

    • Natsu

      That is terribly, awfully, woefully sad! Sounds similar to how in today’s society, we want to reach a level of media perfection and in our pursuit, we destroy our natural features and corrupt our minds. :C

    i feel bad for being so negative about these pokemon earlier

    • Ultron

      It’s okay, some pokemon designs grow on you. Some pokemon have meh artwork but look cool when rendered in 3D, or have cool concepts but meh execution. I for one, love red pandas, so part of me like this guy, but also I think it could’ve been better. Mimikkyu is alright, I like the typing and concept, but it’s not really something that I have to have on my team. I’ll have to see what they evolve/don’t evolve into and their stat spread before I make any final decisions about whether or not I really like them.

    • EarthenWarrior

      I don’t
      Because of them I got to wait even longer for Pokemon I can get excited about

    • PercyEspeon

      Es alright, initial reactions can be like that. I used to though Drampa was super weird, but it’s grown on me as well. That’s why I don’t take too much stock into my initial reaction until I see more

    • Rockcrawdaunt

      The panda just doesn’t feel like a Pokemon to me.

      • Ultron

        Maybe it’s because it’s bipedal and looks sort of strange. Also the coloring/patterning is sort of bland, hence to why I think it must evolve again. I also kind of wonder why it’s so tall, that is a very distinct departure from the size of a Red Panda

        • Rockcrawdaunt

          Simple designs man. Gamefreak can’t win. Its not the simple design for me or the colors scheme, although the pink is odd as fairy has kind of adopted that for the most part when it comes to normal types that were adapted to fairy. But oh well.

          • Ultron

            Pink is definitely weird…Red Pandas are beloved for their scarlet fur. It’s a defining feature.

    • I still don’t like the panda. It looks like it’s wearing cat ears which brings back… Embarrassing memories for me.

      • The Aqua Flygon

        I think it might be based on a red panda knowing bear like Ring tail white things like a Pink red panda

  • Rockcrawdaunt

    Still around til leaks are confirmed, I’m curious from a design perspective how you would be able to draw those scribbly eyes on mimikkyu in the 3D or in the anime and make them look identical every frame.

    • FlamingFairies

      well they could do the eyes similar to spinda ingame

      • Rockcrawdaunt

        These are much more complicated swirlies and scribbles tho.

    • Green

      Maybe since it’s haunted, the eyes move. If they drew differently each frame, it would look like they’re moving unsteadily.

  • thegreatcarbinkle

    mimmikay true form! inkay line is shook

    • Green

      The ears are actually it’s legs

  • I can’t wait to see the trailer for these guys on Friday. Should be interesting to see their 3D in-game models. You can only see so much from the Official Artwork and a low quality scan. And besides, I’d love for them to show Mimikkyu to appear in the cemetery with the Japanese town and lighthouse on the smaller island connecting to the Volcano island. I have a feeling it will appear there. I have to admit that it took a while, but I’m accepting Kiteruguma and Mimikkyu as part of the Alola family. We have 21 new ones introduced, bringing the grand total of known species to 742!

    • Ultron

      Is there a trailer coming on friday?

    • The Aqua Flygon

      Yes let’s hope to get past 800 this region

      • Ultron

        I can’t see there being less than 79 pokemon this gen. Given how many they’ve already revealed and how many evos they’ll have, that wouldn’t leave too many left.

        • The Aqua Flygon

          Ok and I wonder this is stupid but what is next

          • Ultron

            Well we’ve yet to see any ground, ice, or dark types so hopefully those.

          • The Aqua Flygon

            Have we seen a Grass type other than Rowlet I feel we need some more fire, Grass, and some others

          • Ultron

            I don’t believe so. I’ll take some more grass type, hopefully as dual types. Not a fan of pure grass

          • The Aqua Flygon

            Fair Fair I think they need to show evos. For some instead of more Pokemon
            Like Pikipek I think it should be Flying/Grass or Flying/Ground

          • Ultron

            I’m still holding out for steel/flying, but I’ll take whatever.

          • EarthenWarrior

            They would NEVER become those types

          • The Aqua Flygon

            Pikipek throws seeds in its description which might be a signal and Ground for it might give up its tree pecking for drilling in the Ground

          • EarthenWarrior

            How does it ballistically zipping seeds from trees it bored at the opponent make it a plant
            And though it could turn into a drill it just seems very unlikely

          • The Aqua Flygon

            Mabey the seeds would grow off its body to make it that

          • EarthenWarrior

            *Shakes head no*

          • Ultron

            It’d be cool if the beak turns more drill-like and can spin independent of the body. All depends how they draw it though.

          • Phatmon

            I had an idea somewhat like that.

          • Ultron

            That’s pretty sweet, did you draw those??

          • Phatmon

            yep

          • FlamingFairies

            we need ground types or someone will be angry lol

          • Ultron

            He’s always angry. (Not a hulk reference)

  • Ultron

    Well at least Kiteruguma is a more acceptable Red Panda than that drunken bear Spinda. Although I will admit its in game movements are cute

    • Green

      Spinda’s a regular panda

      • The Aqua Flygon

        We have lots of pandas Pancham, Spinda, this thing pandas everywhere

        • Green

          Just keep in mind, Red Pandas aren’t actually really Pandas. Heck, they’re not even bears.

          • Ultron

            Nope. They have their own family. They’re closer to raccoons than bears, which makes sense

          • Green

            Yeah.

          • The Aqua Flygon

            Yeah which means since they are closely related to Racoons I got my Racoon yet it wasn’t a Grass type or a starter like my first Idea which was
            Grass Racoon with grass blade boomerangs
            Fire Koala it was just orange and red
            Water Platypus pretty awesome
            Mabey they will come as regulars

          • Shady

            Actually the panda it self is not a bear …it’s more like Raccoon.

          • The Aqua Flygon

            It is classified as a bear though but it is more related to raccoons yes

          • Shady

            Right ….Actually American ppl knows much about animal ….I wonder y my ppl not.

      • Ultron

        Is it? It’s still ugly

  • omg wow sweet cinnamon roll Mimikkyu is seriously becoming one of my favorites.

    • PercyEspeon

      You’re definitely not the only one <3

      • The Aqua Flygon

        It’s losing its creepiness for its cute for me

        • PercyEspeon

          I find it creepy and cute <3
          Which is something I thought I would never say about anything really xD
          It's a top contender for a spot on one of my playthrough teams, although I dunno where to put it for now

          • EarthenWarrior

            Right up your arse

          • PercyEspeon

            Wow that’s a very rude thing to say to a lady 😛
            I haven’t said anything bad to you 🙂

          • Ultron

            But that’s how Earthen rolls

          • PercyEspeon

            True, which is why I added the smiles and stuff at the end of my statements.
            I’m totally not serious in any way xD

          • EarthenWarrior

            Like’a Boulder crushing everything in its path

          • Ultron

            Rollout, yo.

          • EarthenWarrior
          • Ultron

            Donphan is definitely the rollout king. Other than maybe Golem of course

          • EarthenWarrior

            You said you needed a place to put it

        • Green

          Oh. It’s still creepy to me. But that’s why I like it.

    • Green

      It’s made it top my top 5!

  • Ultron

    While the official artwork is meh, I do think Kiteruguma is pretty adorable when hugging that tree to death. It’s got that steadfast and dopey look on its face. All it wants to do is hug something and not have it be crushed. Kinda like Jigglypuff almost, except with singing.

    • Rockcrawdaunt

      Is this for sure the official artwork? Sometimes they show a different one on the website right?

      • Ultron

        Idk, corocoro used official artwork for Komala and Rockruff

        • Rockcrawdaunt

          That’s true. But I think there have been instances of other artwork being shown for other pokemon…

          • Ultron

            It’s entirely possible, although I kinda doubt it

  • Shady
    • The Aqua Flygon

      Hmm no hug murdered by it
      Hug Crushed
      I’ll go with hug!

    • Green

      I’m good. I wanna live a few more years. And if I wanted to die, I’d eat Tide Pods.

    • FlamingFairies

      ok that has won me over it’s too cute 🙂

    • PercyEspeon

      If I can make it out alive after it, sure 🙂

    • Ultron

      It’d kind of depressing, really. They can’t even hug their own kind since they’re weak to fighting type.

      • PercyEspeon

        Wow, you’re actually right…. D:

        • Ultron

          I just want to hug it. Let it know that it’s not that ugly. I would just put on some steel body armor to do so, but steel is also weak to fighting. The poor little thing can’t win ;(

          • PercyEspeon

            I was thinking of becoming a ghost, but it’ll just pass right through.
            There’s no way for this to be possible now is there?

          • FlamingFairies

            knock it out then hug and use a revive after

          • Ultron

            I feel there will be some sort of anime episode revolving around this

          • EarthenWarrior

            You should let it hug you
            I fed it a bunch of Proteins so it’s ready to go

          • Ultron

            Well I actually guess I COULD hug it, considering Adamantium is an unbreakable metal. Maybe I’ll have a team of 6 and use them as body guards

          • EarthenWarrior

            Until a Gengar completely walls you

          • Ultron

            Although unless it knows psychic it aint doin much either. It might learn a dark move or something

          • EarthenWarrior

            Dazzling Gleam

          • Ultron

            Aw shuckles.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Yep that’s the world we live in

      • EarthenWarrior

        Which is why this thing will be outclassed
        Being threatened by nearly anything

        • Ultron

          I really do hate normal type

          • EarthenWarrior

            It’s like Pangoro
            It was given a badass Fighting/Dark type to fit it’s cantankerous demeanor just to have it run and turn tail when a Mega Loppuny or Keldeo shows up
            And now it gots to worry even more for Fairies

          • Ultron

            At least it looks like a badass though. Sometimes that’s all you need

          • EarthenWarrior

            No, all that matters is getting on the list
            Otherwise EVERYTHING walks all over it

          • Ultron

            Well that’s only if stats are super important to you. Sometimes I can overlook weaknesses and like a pokemon for other reasons.

          • EarthenWarrior

            And if not it gets abused by everything

          • Ultron

            Everyone has their niche. Well except for some pokemon that GF has left by the wayside.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Like nearly every legendary

          • Well that’s because you made the decision that you hated using legendaries and don’t wanna use them.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Because Legends are naturally OP
            And shouldn’t be used so frivolously

          • Ultron

            Well I meant more like Dunsparce and Qwilfish that really just suck and could use something to help them along.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Well they’re not getting anything anytime soon

          • Ultron

            Unfortunately that’s probably true

        • Using monotype in a non-monotype category (e.g. OU) just makes your team immediately outclassed, right? What’s new?

          Also, did you know that “Normal and Fighting” is an awesome STAB combo? Only ghosts resist that combo, so you only need three moves to cover the entire cast: Normal, Fighting and Ghost or Dark, leaving the last move to be anything the trainer wants.

      • Shady

        I just realize it’s 2.1m long it’s look like those monsters from fairy tales …..and ppl ask me y I think he should be fairy.

      • Green

        Interviewer: Tell me, why are you suffering from depression?
        Kiteruguma: I try to hug people to comfort them….. but then they fall on the ground and act dead so I go away ;~;
        Interviewer: Aww…. Come here….
        Kiteruguma: Thank you *Hugs Interviewer*
        Interviewer: (Pain sounds) *Falls on the ground*
        Kiteruguma: *Cries*

        • Ultron

          It must leave a pile of severed bodies in its wake.

  • SesquipedalianPokedex

    Just got on to see these…. They’re certainly…. Unique…. The bear looks like a little kid drawing to me and the other one is fine… I guess :/

    • FlamingFairies

      they grow on you after a while 🙂

      • SesquipedalianPokedex

        Yeah, they probably will 🙂
        Bruxish has grown on me so I guess anything is possible…

        • I heard the word Bruxish so I’m checking in… <3

  • Nickerton

    I’m glad they gave a backstory to Mimikkyu because otherwise it’d be as stupid and gimmicky as Foongus and Amoonguss’ pokeball tops

  • Rockcrawdaunt

    Not sure if there’s been a comment on this, but what do we think the english names will be?

    Timbear?
    Bearhug? XD

    Spirichu?

    Idk, that’s all I got…

    • The common guess for the ghost is Pikaboo, though. <3

    • ShinyXatu

      I came up with the stupid name Graspanda, since it’s based on a red panda. I really like your name for Pikaboo!

      • Rockcrawdaunt

        I like Pikaboo too! Whoever came up with that is a genius.

      • Ultron

        That’s not bad, although I think of grass panda when I say it

    • SesquipedalianPokedex

      Mimichu for the pika ghost.

      • Rockcrawdaunt

        I thought of that one but didnt put it. Great minds!

    • Nickerton

      @BigGuyI:disqus name them, oh god of naming pokemon

    • Ultron

      Bearhug is too much…timbear is kinda cute. I was trying to figure out a way to fit panda in the name and couldn’t do it.

    • Anob

      Timbear sounds too similar to timburr but fits him well and spirichu sounds good aswell but i will call it spooxie for now XD (spooky+pixie)

  • Ultron

    Sorry for posting so much but does anyone know where the name Kiteraguma comes from? Idk how much is lost in translation but I see “Kit” which is used to describe young baby animals (which could point to it not being fully evolved, although baby red pandas are called cubs, not kits, which is interesting) and guma, perhaps referring to gummy bears or just that guma means bear in Japanese..

    • PercyEspeon

      I know, from taking Japanese, that the first part is definitely ‘to be wearing (something above the waist, like a shirt)’ like you use it for ‘that person is wearing/wears a red shirt’ although I dunno what the last part could be (although the gummy or gum part might be a possibility)

      • PercyEspeon

        Oh and kiteru is also for ‘it is coming’ :3
        so…basically what PJ said in the article xD

      • Ultron

        Interesting. Thanks 🙂

    • Green

      For me it’s the other way around tbh. 🙂

      • Poekoko

        OH really?

        • Green

          You’ve seen me. It’s troo

          • Poekoko

            sure

  • ShinyXatu

    I somehow managed to run across three new species (Exeggcute, Rhyhorn, Growlithe) on the way home from a five-minute car ride! I wasn’t the one driving, don’t worry.

    • Nickerton

      This aint twitter tho

      • Ultron

        Savage

      • ShinyXatu

        I’m pretty sure Twitter wouldn’t care either 😛 I should really get around to using that though…

    • Ultron

      I still haven’t caught anything good.

    • Green

      Hey! That’s like what I did. I didn’t have any Pokeballs tho, so I couldn’t catch a Jynx, an Exeggcute, a Pidgeot, a Marowak and a Raichu

      • ShinyXatu

        Now that sucks big-time. Haven’t seen most of the Pokemon you just listed.

        • Green

          And there were NO Pokestops on the way either…

  • Green

    I was going to draw a new icon for myself, but after seeing all of these Pokemon from Sun and Moon, I think I might find a new favorite Pokemon in this Gen.

    • Poekoko

      I found a new favorite, you

      ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

      • Green

        }:(

        • Poekoko

          Jk breh

          • Green

            You’re not being loyal to the Aqua Flygon

          • Poekoko

            Look tho, it says I am

          • The Aqua Flygon

            I heard my name what does he mean?

          • Green

            oh. It’s supposed to say “Being Loyal to”. Also he said you were his favorite Pokemon from Sun and Moon.

          • The Aqua Flygon

            Hmmm Ok

          • Anon

            Your pic looks like baby lapras so cute! What is it though?

          • Green

            It’s Kurusu, his scratched Johto Water Starter friend

          • Anon

            Oh nice! Didnt knew gamefreak had shown any scrapped pokes

          • Green

            There was also a similar looking fire starter

          • Anon

            Sounds interesting, where can i read more about them?

          • The Aqua Flygon

            It was the original Gen.2 Water starter in place of Totodile but only was in the Alpha demo of them
            Also a Fire Bear was going to exist but was scrapped with this their names are Kurusu and The other Honoguma https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b529bf5164ba251213178e1d8f1cb7f85c32750c3e9f09905426a2638a360bc0.png

          I found it funny how everyother youtuber playing pokemon go blur the places they live but he doesnt and just made himself in danger of fanboys/girls(if he even has any) invading him and getting robbed or kidnapped is also a possibility i wouldnt mind

  • ShinyXatu

    New trailer on the Pokemon Japanese YouTube channel. Shows Kiteruguma in-game and whatever Synergy will be.

    • EarthenWarrior

      What….link it now

      • ShinyXatu
        • Poekoko

          What’s the weird gang sign the trainer flashes at us?

          • PercyEspeon

            IT seems to be how it activates
            But yeah, it does resemble that xD

        • EarthenWarrior

          It seems to just be a super attack…..at least it’s not asinine fusion

          • ShinyXatu

            Thank goodness.

          • PercyEspeon

            And it looks like it’s generalized by typing, but it’s too soon to tell

        • PercyEspeon

          I do love this trailer tho <3 es so cute

        • SesquipedalianPokedex

          This look amazing, oh my god!

        • Nintendalek42

          OMG A PORYGON HAIRDRYER YES PLS (so Amie is returning, as expected!, is this even new info?)
          Loving the new locations showcased, and that stream battle background. A nice sailboat shot too!
          Also loads more riding confirmed (it looks awesome too!) (+sailing!) and thankfully it seems the new synergy mechanic is indeed nothing but a super attack with power-ranger choreography attached (interesting to see those in-game type icons).
          Also a quick look at both the new pokés! Mimmikyu’s model is great, and Kiteruguma looks more grey than garishly pink…

          • PercyEspeon

            I just noticed the hairdryer omg it looks gorgeous <3

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      Rumors confirmed?!?!?!?!?!

    • PercyEspeon

      And also shows Mimikyuu in the trade <3

      • ShinyXatu

        I don’t see that, where/when?

        • PercyEspeon

          When they are doing the trade around 1:27

          • ShinyXatu

            WHOA, I thought that was Pikachu! It’s yellow!

        • Poekoko

          refresh

    • Luigi301

      is the synergy that scene with the protags dancing and the three starters have their type showed on them??

      • ShinyXatu

        Yep, that’s it!

        • Luigi301

          oh ok thank you, i somehow didnt catch it the first time so i replayed and i didnt notice mimikkyu in the trade either, looks soo much better in game than on cororoco pics. i dont care what anyone says mimikkyu is freakin adorable, and the fact that it wants to be like pikachu is cute. please make this little guy a co-mascot!

  • TheSunnyMonster6893

    So does this confirm the guy on 4Chan?!?!?! I mean he did say a trailer featuring the new mechanic would be shown this week!!!! I’m so pumped!!!!

    • EarthenWarrior

      Hold your anus
      I’m not letting some rando leaker get all this right
      Which guy was this
      Georilla guy or somebody else

    • Anon

      Fake lel stop being so gullible i mean yeah the video shows awesome things but we dont have any details yet so like earthen said just hold your anus 😉

    • SesquipedalianPokedex

      If there was going to be a new mechanic shown in a trailer this week they probably would have had it in Corocoro. The more reconfirms than confirms

      • TheSunnyMonster6893

        The trailer shows some stuff happening…..what are you talking about?

        • SesquipedalianPokedex

          Oh my god, I didn’t see the trailer, just did, so hyped!!!

  • PercyEspeon

    I don’t have the picture for it, but there’s also a grooming feature that’s gonna be added (with Pikachu, before the trade with Mimikyuu and Pancham)
    I think that’s actually kind of cool and I hope that it’ll be implemented with more Pokemon than just Pikachu

    • Anon

      Yeah that looks like improved pkmn amie!!! HYPEEE

      • PercyEspeon

        Looking back on it, it definitely looks that way <3

        • EarthenWarrior

          Looks looks like grooming
          Will I finally be able to polish Excadrill’s claws

          • PercyEspeon

            Are you going to paint them too? :3 I think it’ll make it look super cute if you do 🙂

          • Anon

            No, but you will be able to paint them with glittery, fairy pink nail polish 😉

          • EarthenWarrior

            I rather paint the with the blood of fallen victims

          • Anon

            But that would rust them, remember blood has oxygen in it so probably not healthy for his steel nails

          • If it’s surgical stainless steel, it should not be a problem.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Then just polish

          • Anon

            Fairy pink polish*

      Thanks Earthen 🙂
      Look at all those Pokemon we can ride <3
      And the boat thing with Hau and the player, is that us going to a different island? :O

      • EarthenWarrior

        Just doing my job

      • TheHipsterRowlet

        It’s definitely us going to a different island.
        I can’t wait till I ride Stoutland haha.

  • TheSunnyMonster6893

    OK OK OK lets take a minute to check some stuff off. Not only did the one guy get the new mechanic being shown correct, but the trailer also confirms more Pokemon that can be ridden. I think with this we can confirm that at least some of the leaks are reral!!!

    • Anon

      Wait for details first dude just focus on being hyped now ok? HYPEEEE

      • TheSunnyMonster6893

        Oh I’m more than hyped right now hahaha

  • SYNCHRO CONFIRMED

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      I knew the rumors couldn’t be completely fake. There might be some differences, but at this point I’d say we’re good to go on believing them! lol

      • PercyEspeon

        For right now, I’ll still be on neutral. Just to be safe.
        Until I see the Pokemon he mentioned that were going to be in the video, then I’ll start to believe them more

        • TheSunnyMonster6893

          Yeah….I suppose that’s more reasonable hahaha

          • PercyEspeon

            It is, but it’s still interesting that one aspect seems to be aligning with it, so it gives it some credibility.
            I like being on the safe side tho 🙂

    • ShinyXatu

      I’m so happy that there’s no form change. I’d be surprised if Megas returned with such a feature included. Things are looking up!

      • SesquipedalianPokedex

        My sentiments exactly 🙂

      • Nintendalek42

        As happy as I am this is not some new form change mechanic, not bringing back megas would negate any happiness derived thereof for me. I may not have been a fan of them at first but you just can’t introduce a feature like that and remove it.

  • ALL OF MY HOPES AND DREAMS BEING CONFIRMED OMGWAT

    • Ithsme

      We can always use more Undertale music around here.

  • SesquipedalianPokedex

    OMG! This is SO EXCITING!!!! This game looks simply AMAZING!!! *crying*
    ¡Qué Fabuloso! I’m so happy to see all of that amazing footage of the reagon and the riding Pokemon, I’m dying! Sychro confirmed and it doesn’t look terrible! OMG I can’t! I’m dying of hype right now!

            Ikr hahaha

    • Luigi301

      im actually with you on this one, i dont tend to hype too much but the game just looks amazing, and again monzaemon looks cool and mimikkyu like i said below is just adorable

  • Anon

    These trailers are telling a story, first shohei moved to hawaii and made new friends, in this one it seems he is on vacation visiting his family in japan, also you cant tell it is shohei since the trailer is in fpv but at least the actress used for the mom is the same one

  • ShinyXatu

    It’s very peculiar that they chose to show those Pokemon days before the release of CoroCoro. They likely wanted to reference those reveals beforehand so fans would be surprised, but it didn’t quite work out that way. Since they’ve been shown so early compared to Rockruff and Komala, I think it’s safe to assume that we’ll get English names on Thursday. I could be wrong, though!

    • Luigi301

      someone here said pikaboo this morning and i have to say thats a great name lol so funny

    • PercyEspeon

      Yeah, it is weird now that I think about it.
      And I am hoping for those names and more info on those abilities to be released soon <3

      • ShinyXatu

        Aren’t those paragraphs for each Pokemon interesting? They’ve made me appreciate every single design, whether I’ve liked them initially or not. They even convinced me that Bruxish was a good idea. I’m excited to see that they say about Mr. Panda and Pikaboo.

        • PercyEspeon

          Yeah same <3 it gives every Pokemon personailty, and even if I am not fond of an idea, it gives it some redemption to know how it acts and stuff, and I grow to appreciate the thought that went behind it and the Pokemon itself <3 😀

        • Luigi301

          ikr! like i said pikaboo wanting to be loved by people like pikachu was/is, its freakin adorable, he already sold me, i love it

  • Luigi301

    idk about anyone else but i feel like there was a bit of eevee in the trailer maybe we will get a new eevee form? just an idea, what do you guys think?

    • ShinyXatu

      I’m thinking the same. In my wildest dreams, they’d also have more evolutions of past generation Pokemon. I think they probably would have shown at least one already, though 🙁

      • Luigi301

        i am 100% with you on that, i want new cross evolutions like in sinnoh

        • ShinyXatu

          Let’s hope that the dream isn’t dead. There’s still four months to work with…

          • Luigi301

            counting them down, cant believe its july 12 already its crazy.

    • PercyEspeon

      There is a focus on eevee (and eevee has been shown off before in previous trailers)
      so it is something to speculate about

      • Luigi301

        exactly my thoughts

    • CBobbert

      But the trailer straight-up shows us that there are still only 8 Eeveelutions in Sun and Moon (trust me, I was thinking the same thing until I saw this hahaha)
      Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Glaceon, and Sylveon make up those 8 already.
      So, unless they’re straight up lying to us right to our faces, I think it’s pretty much confirmed.

      • PercyEspeon

        Not doubting you, I just want to know where it shows that. I’m curious 🙂

        • CBobbert

          54 seconds into the video

          • PercyEspeon

            Ah ok, thanks 🙂 totally overlooked that xD

          • CBobbert

            It’s only there VERY briefly, so I understand!

          • PercyEspeon

            Yeah, it’s something that people normally would overlook, but I usually spot things like this, so I am a bit disappointed in myself xD

      • Nintendalek42

        Dang, great spot though!

          oh that. sorry but im still against the “rumored leaks” till confirmed. i dont like to hype things till confirmation, for now its just pointless conversation for the time being but lets just wait, i would like a dolphin pokemon why not lol

          • But I like pointless conversation!

          • Luigi301

            lol of course, we all do. but we have to recognize that its conversation and not 100% real yet lol

          • EarthenWarrior

            I said *nails clawing the table* Ground/Fighting type

          • Anon

            What is with you and nails today?

          • PercyEspeon

            I think he’s trying to tell us something.
            SPEAK TO US EARTHEN!

          • EarthenWarrior

            BITCH I SAID I WANT MY GOD DANG GROUND/FIGHTING TYPE

          • PercyEspeon

            Lemme translate that. :3
            ‘I would very much like the type I was promised’
            Oh okay 🙂

          • EarthenWarrior

            That ain’t what I said

          • PercyEspeon

            Well, you know how online translators are, they can be highly inaccurate 😉 Take your complaint with that

          • EarthenWarrior

            I’ll just nail the customer service client with a brick

          • PercyEspeon

            That’s always effective

          • Anon

            But its what you meant

          • TheHipsterRowlet

            You said you wanted a Ground/Fighting type Pokemon???

          • EarthenWarrior

            They’re long and sharp

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      Could be. You’d be getting what you’ve always wanted. Be happy!!! lol

      • EarthenWarrior

        Or they’re once again jerking me around again

        • TheSunnyMonster6893

          For the love of god I hope not. I don’t want to be around the day you get screwed again hahaha

          • EarthenWarrior

            I was lied to too many times
            And this is too personal

          • Luigi301

            calm down earthen, we got a first fire/poison, we got a first non mega normal/fighting (lopunny), ghost/fairy, i bet ground and fighting will come. patience is a virtue lol, plus a very interesting combo, watch out for my mimikkyu

          • EarthenWarrior

            Well no offense my patience is growing thin
            I’ve been waiting since Black and White for one and now I’ve I’m still waiting

          • Luigi301

            hmm, we have yet to see a new ground type dont we?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Let’s see…..NOPE

          • Luigi301

            ??? i just looked tho we still havent gotten a new ground type.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Yep
            And now I got to wait EVEN LONGER

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            Technically Pirouette form Meloetta is Normal/Fighting hahaha

          • Luigi301

            oh my youre right, i was looking earlier and i mustve scrolled over meloetta, thanks!

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            But still it’s a normal/fighting type that’s not a form or legendary!!! lol

  • Nintendalek42

    Blah blah blah synchro blah blah
    PEOPLE WE HAVE A PORYGON HAIRDRYER WHY IS ANYTHING ELSE REMOTELY IMPORTANT

    • Anon

      Woah hadnt noticed!

    • Luigi301

      i love the new amie. looks like ill be spending hours maxing the hearts for a togekiss again

      • SesquipedalianPokedex

        Yeah it looks great, I can’t wait to see what new features they’ve added, such as the new grooming Pokemon with a porygon blow dryer.

    • PercyEspeon

      Highlight of the day <3

  • So, no Gyms and League confirmed! Hooray! *Sarcasm*

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      Listen change can be good. Are beating the gyms really the only thing that drives you to play Pokemon? they aren’t just going to leave that part completely barren. I’m sure there will be another kind of challenge to well…challenge us throughout the games.

      • SesquipedalianPokedex

        Yeah I’m looking forward to seeing what game freak does with it actually!

        • TheSunnyMonster6893

          Could mean that the actual story is more fulfilling this time around. They always us the formula of collecting gym badges as a crutch and this could give a more tantalizing story lol

          • Anon

            Bruh did you even play gen 5? BW specifically

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            Well yeah Gen 5 removed I mean. that was probably the best gen out of the currently playable 6. I mean in general lol

    • Luigi301

      lol not true yet, plus dont worry while i agree it seems odd this way, who knows maybe it will still be interesting how they tackle badges and stuff like that.

    • Nintendalek42

      Hey, if the associated rumour that you are creating a pokémon league is true, maybe you go around finding and fighting strong trainers to recruit them as gym leaders?… Now messing with the basics is the sort of idea that would usually turn me off too but if gamefreak aren’t lazy and go all out with the idea, I genuinely think this might turn out to be an exciting and worthwhile direction to take. As much as we cherish those essential elements, it’s not unfair to say pokémon can seem a little creatively stale in some respects. If they do something different but manage to bring us back to usual business in the end, I’m all for it, as long as it’s good. They just need to put a little more effort (or a little more smart creative focus) than they did into XY, which seems to be happening, judging by everything shown so far.

  • Ultron

    Yesterday I said we should be able ride tauros!!! 😀

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      Your wish has been granted lol

  • ShinyXatu

    Just so you guys know, there’s an Amazon-exclusive steelbook containing both Sun and Moon. That’s what I’ll be getting for added convenience. Might as well pre-order now in case they sell out!

    • Luigi301

      i saw that, i dont think the one steel box for 10 bucks is worth it when both games will cost 80 together and not 90, but it does look cool just my opinion

  • I’m so happy that these final evos are basically confirmed

    • PercyEspeon

      I wouldn’t say basically, I still have some pinch of salt on them for right now.
      But that’s just me :3
      (if it is like what the 4Chan leaker said and Litten was Fire/Dark, I would be content with it and the other designs are awesome too)

    • Anon

      B-but my litten got ruined 🙁 just like fennekin it had so much potential but nope, still hoping they are fake

      • But Popplio became a beautiful water goddess

        • The Lavender Swirlix

          YAY

      • Luigi301

        i always use fire starter except for diamond i used piplup, so i may still choose litten but man im hoping to use my first ever grass starter for a first run. rowlet looks cute and im excited

      • TheSunnyMonster6893

        Idk the idea of a badass heel wrestler is kind of cool don’t you think? lol

        • Anon

          Kinda but i mean its too similar to all the fire/fighting even if its fire/dark and im hoping for it to stay quadrupedal

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            Maybe one day we’ll get a quadruped fire starter lol

          • EarthenWarrior

            When will you learn
            Fire starters are designed to disappoint the players

          • PercyEspeon

            I love almost every fire starter, so not really :3

          • Chariazard, Blaziken, Infernape,

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            Idk man I like a lot of them lol

          • Anon

            Hopefully that day is november 18, 2016 😉

    • EarthenWarrior

      Ass

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      I am too!!! I love Rowlets evo, but I think I’ll stick with Litten. If it really is Fire/Dark I have no problem with it! I just didn’t want it to turn out to be part fighting type lol

      • Luigi301

        fire dark? i thought that site thing said grass/flying, water/fighting, and fire/ground? am i wrong?

        • TheSunnyMonster6893

          Well it could still be fire/ground, but the leaker (who turned out correct about this video) said it’d be fire and dark. Maybe it was a lie to throw people off, maybe it wasn’t, but in either case I’d be happy lol

        • knightwolf09

          If you’ve ever seen the concept arts for the starters final evos. Those are noe claimed to be the real deal. And they say Rowlet’s is Grass/Flying, Litten’s is Fire/Dark, and Popplio’s is Water/Fairy.

          • Luigi301

            i did see them, but im referring to what was found on the site

          • knightwolf09

            Yeah, but those were never comfirmed to be the starters’s typings.

          • Luigi301

            lol neither were those concept arts, still just speculation and rumor

    • ShinyXatu

      What confirms them?

      • I think the leak that said the starters are like the art and numerous things it claimed was confirmed in this trailer

        • Luigi301

          what did it clam that was confirmed? i think i missed something

        • PercyEspeon

          I just read through the 4Chan thing, and the only thing confirmed on the list so far is the ‘special attacks’ so yeah

          • knightwolf09

            Rideable pokemon were also claimed in the chinese leak.

          • EarthenWarrior

            We had that image for a while now

          • The leak came out before that image

          • EarthenWarrior

            So the Pokemon.com image came before this when was it posted

          • PercyEspeon

            I was talking about the 4Chan one specifically since I just read it, I forgot what was mentioned in the chinese leak

          • knightwolf09

            Yeah the chinese leak said almost any pokemon is rideable.

          • Anon

            AWESOME THANK YOU GIVE ME HOPE!!!

          • TheRece25

            What special attacks?

        • TheRece25

          What trailer?

          • Look below. There is a japanese trailer with new gameplay

    • SesquipedalianPokedex

      Same! I can’t wait to see them in game!

    • TheHipsterRowlet

      Not really. I’m still taking them with a pinch of salt. However, if they’re real I’m definitely going to choose Rowlet. Litten’s is just disappointing in my opinion, but oh well. Oh, also Popplio’s is not bad either.

    • Nintendalek42

      Urghhhh I’m still completely in two minds about this because of how much I adore Rowlet’s evo but hate the two others sooooooo much.

  • No hats boys! The time has come! rf.

    • PercyEspeon

      Bruh, YESSSSSSSSS <3
      I love that flower hat, but I'm glad to know that I can take it off whenever I want <3 YES PLEASE GF YOU ROCK

    • Yep. I saw that! A lot of people are going to be VERY happy! I know I am!

    • TheRece25

      I thought we could go hatless in xY

      • TheHipsterRowlet

        We couldn’t.

    • Ithsme

      Can’t wait to have my head not burdened with a curse.

    • The Lavender Swirlix

      Maybe we can cut that awful mop hair too

      • TheHipsterRowlet

        Yes, please! It’s so ugly haha

        • The Lavender Swirlix

          I liked all the male characters styles up until D/P and then with black and white beyond I was displeased with the hair styles XD

          • TheHipsterRowlet

            Same. The male character looks the same for me since DP! I was so happy when we learned we could customise it in XY 😀

    • Wow, the male protagonist’s default hair is so bad! No wonder he needs a hat.

    • Wes

      I love the shirt with the Pikachu surfing on a rainbow!

  • TheRece25

    Yoo. .. they’re making Pokemon Go 12.99 A Month in a month’s time. No Way! They planned this from the start. F**That! Theyre going to lose So Many players. Good. I would Never

    • Anon

      What? Where did they say that?

    • Green

      Only if we don’t already have it right?

      • TheRece25

        No.. you will be forced to upgrade

    • PercyEspeon

      ??????
      Proof?

    • The Lavender Swirlix

      Its not even available in most countries including my own yet

    • TheHipsterRowlet

      What? Who said that? I’m so confused haha

    • Sauce?

      • Anon

        BBQ or honey mustard?

        • TheRece25

          Honey Mustard plz!

          • Anon

            Hmm ill have to check to see if theres any left

          • TheRece25

            😿😿😿

    • The email’s fake. However, if that were true they’d have to make the title Pokemon GO f*ck yourself

  • TheRece25

    Also these are cool and all. . . But I find it odd.. we have seen So Any and still only Litten is confirmed for my team :/

  • TheRece25

    Oops… I’m sorry. It seems a trusted source almost got scammed themselves.. they are not making us pay for Go

  • Here’s Sun and Moon’s bottom screen menu! Sorry for the small images; I’m on my phone!

    • Anon

      I cant see it very well can someone tell me what are those?

      • Luigi301

        menus like pokemon, bag, etc i believe

        • EarthenWarrior

          And Grooming

    • TheHipsterRowlet

      A better screenshot : *refresh to see the pic*

      • YES! HGSS ONE RETURNING!!

        • Luigi301

          i dont quite understand what you mean could you clarify please

          • It is similar to the HGSS one where you could click on the options like items and pokemon and stuff

          • Luigi301

            yeah lol sorry i just realized you meant the ui

      • EarthenWarrior

        Team
        Pokedex
        Bag
        Save
        Trainer card
        Grooming

        • Wes

          Is that last one not options? I’d be surprised if there aren’t options.

          • PercyEspeon

            Yeah, it’s what I’m wondering too, since there’s always an options button for different game settings

      • Anon

        Ok so they are team, pokedex, bag, save, idk menu i guess and idk also on the top left an arrow is present so hopefully super training and pss are back(amie is confirmed so maybe these are aswell)

    • PercyEspeon

      Ah, it looks amazing <3

  • Wes

    In the new trailer, you can see that berry trees akin to those from XY are returning (in the Tauros scene).

    • Wes

      On second thought, I’m not 100% sure its a berry tree. But something is definitely sparkling underneath it.

      • The Lavender Swirlix

        i see only two trees one on either side, and a bush, was there more than one tauros scene?

        • Wes

          Here’s a picture where I circled what I’m talking about.

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            just looks like light, judging by the shape of the cliff I’m gunna say there is probably no way to get down there

          • Ultron

            I think it might just be a falling leaf or something

          • Wes

            I don’t know. I could still be wrong, but I’m adamantly standing by the fact that it’s /something/. I just don’t know what. If you watch at .5 speed, it sparkles like an item and doesn’t look at all like a leaf.

  • The new Routes and locations look very fleshed out. You have to pause a lot to see them all. Aside from no Gyms and League basically confirmed at this point, I’m very excited for the games!

  • These are shaping up to be some of the best Pokemon games yet for me

    • The Lavender Swirlix

      same

      • Anon

        Wait same? You are a pokemon game aswell?!

        • The Lavender Swirlix

          now you know thats not what I was saying… and no one in their right mind would confused that, it was a perfectly fine response

          • Anon

            Ok…it was a joke but i guess you dont like jokes so bye

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            you’re an anon, I assume half of you are trolls tbh, so my bad I apologize

          • Anon

            Its ok i guess i can be annoying sometimes but im always around here commenting as Anon hehe ill make an account soon though so dont worry

      • HGSS like bottom screen, Awesome pokemon designs, customization, unique progression, rotom dex, mysterious waifu i mean character, great legendaries, alchemy references, graphics, pretty as heck island.

        love it all

    • I just hope the whole “no league” is false. Though, if they made the story awesome I could forgive it.

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      I think these games will be a breath of fresh air. Something the series has needed desperately. I think it’ll definitely represent the series as a whole quite well from what we’re seeing lol

    • TheHipsterRowlet

      I feel the same 🙂 The games look amazing so far. I love the scenery and the music so much ahhh

  • TheSunnyMonster6893

    I can’t say I saw a weird dance coming with the new mechanic. I don’t know if I like it or don’t, but it certainly is silly lol

    • Luigi301

      nah its not a dance, i thought the same, its just a pose lol

      • TheSunnyMonster6893

        Well either way hahaha

    • Anon

      Looks like the team flare dance animation thingy from before the battle

  • EarthenWarrior

    GameXplain caught wind of this we’re getting the analysis hopefully tomorrow

    • SesquipedalianPokedex

      Yes!!!! Can’t wait!

    • Two hours of over analysing wooooo!

  • Ithsme

    @StarStorm What did the leak say that was confirmed in the trailer? I read the whole thread of comments but I am still confused. Confirming these leaks is something I want so bad.

    • Riding pokemon expanded upon as well as pokemon amie getting a hoverhaul

      • Ithsme

        Oh, thanks. I must’ve missed the “Amie overhaul” in the leaks.

  • I have one big fear. I hope there’s not a lot of riding Pokemon Routes and that the Routes ACTUALLY HAVE TRAINERS instead of those lame ass Sky Trainers. If there is more Riding Pokemon Routes and they’re like X and Y they’ll compromise the game. Unless riding Pokemon is optional. Which it looks like in the Tauros part. As I can see a couple of bystanders. Maybe you slow down to talk and battle?

    • They are probably also mounted and will chase you down on their mounts.

      MOUNTED POKEMON BATTLE!

      • Lol. That I’d pay to see. xD

        • It’s like Yugioh 5D’s (Card Games on Motorcycles). Except with Pokemon!

          Also I promise I’ll buy both versions if this is true AND the defeated trainer is knocked off their mount when they lose. <3

  • Natsu

    – You can ride a multitude of different Pokemon: Lapras, Sharpedo, Stoutland, and Tauros confirmed thus far
    – Character Customization seems to now have more options
    – Pokemon Synchro is nothing compared to Mega-Evolution and enables a stronger attack akin to Burst Mode
    – Pokemon Amie is back with more options
    – Eevee has 8 evolutions, so no new Eevee evolution
    – Riding boat to get to different islands
    – The first trailer shows the character moving to Alola, this second one shows him revisiting his old home… coincidence?
    – UNDERWATER BATTLE?
    – Mimikkyu shown in a trade along with carebear

    • SesquipedalianPokedex

      Underwater battle?

      • Natsu

        During the VS Ledyba scene and right before.

    • The underwater battle was Popplio using his synchro move, I believe.

      • Natsu

        ;(

    • Phatmon

      i hope this is true but we’ll see in due time

    • Jewel

      also the biggest revail thus far, NO HATS MOTHER F*CKER http://a.disquscdn.com/uploads/mediaembed/images/3936/4522/original.jpg?w=600&h

    • Luigi301

      underwater battle? doesnt that exist in ORAS? and darn no eevee? sad

    • PercyEspeon

      Revisiting Kalos being confirmed would be super awesome right now <3

    • Luigi301

      where did these come from? i dont remember any of these except the concept arts, monkey dolphin pokemon, guardians, etc. i dont remember these. also is there a possiblitiy of the english name of mimikkyu being that marshadow thing?

      • Natsu

        These are my observations from the new trailer, not leaks. Sorry, I did not clarify! xD

        • Luigi301

          ohhhhh. thank you for clearing that up for me and lol carebear. im just calling him Monzaemon

  • EarthenWarrior

    GUYS NO NEW EEVEE EVOLUTION CONFIRMED

    • How is it not confirmed?

      • Anon

        When they catch it has 8 pokeballs

      • EarthenWarrior

        When the little shit caught the Eevee it showed only 8 evolutions
        So no new Eeveelutions
        The best news all day

      • Natsu

        During the scene in which Eevee was captured, the Poke’Dex clearly shows onky 8 evolutions being available and not 9. Sadly.

    • TheHipsterRowlet

      I read that as “guys new eevee evolution confirmed” RIP
      I was so excited D:

    • Nickerton

      Sadly no. I thought so too but a giveaway that there’s no new eeveelution is that on the pokedex screen for eevee it had 8 slots, not 9

      • Nickerton

        wow ian’s an ass

      • RIP me. Then again, it’s an odd generation so better luck next time!

    • Poekoko

      Okay, why do you not want any more?

      • EarthenWarrior

        Because I hate it and its entire evolutionary family

        • Poekoko

          Why exactly?

          • Luigi301

            cuz theres no ground one

          • Natsu

            Don’t bother. ;D

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            because he’s a tool and hates anything that doesn’t look massive in size and is a ground type

          • Anything cute to him is vile apparently. It’s ok he has shit taste.

          • TheHipsterRowlet

            Maybe because it’s overrated. And he’s trying to be a hipster 😛

          • EarthenWarrior

            Just never liked them
            Also half of them spam the same strategy and it pisses me off
            Also everyone wants more of these shits and that annoys me

          • Poekoko

            Man, I liked everyone else’s answers better

          • FlamingFairies

            i think if it’s not rhyperior he hates it lol

          • Poekoko

            yeah, same

          • Luigi301

            same strategy??? watch every single tournament, same pokemon same strategy what are you talking about??

          • EarthenWarrior

            I’m talking about the sub wish protect toxic

            Jolteon?

          • Luigi301

            ive seen vaporeon do this, jolteon is never use, neither are glac leaf flare, espeon isnt used this way, umbreon i think is a little different, and sylveon has a few different sets i believe

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            sylveon imo is best with pixelate with trump card, and echoed voice and holding a metronome, and whatever the heck other moves you wanna put in there

          • I’m surprised you’ve never played against a Jolteon or Leafeon in your life…

          • Luigi301

            ill be honest ive neve really battled flare leaf and glace but the others i know i have. and im almost positive vaporeons have scald….at least mine does

          • Well “Sub Wish Protect Scald” is similar on Vaporeon.

            There’s also Scald/Surf, Ice Beam, Calm Mind, Protect/Acid Armor sweeper… which is awesome.

          • Luigi301

            hmm i cant remember the last move on my vaporeon, i dont think i have sub

          • Well, my last vaporeon was a toxic staller but it had a water attack instead of sub.

          • Luigi301

            ok i have it, toxic scald protect wish

          • Well I had Surf instead of Scald (since I had toxic already) but otherwise our sets are similar. <3

          • Luigi301

            scald is strong and stab plus if you are up against a physical pokemon burn it lol

          • He plays smogon simulator so he probably runs into the same stuff every time

          • The Lavender Swirlix

            goddamn kangaskhan is in literally every single tournament ever

    • TheRece25

      Maybe it’s really close to an older region

  • SesquipedalianPokedex

    So do you guys think we might have less HMs this time around, if surfing is done in more of a mamoswine in X and y kind of way? That might be cool…

    • TheRece25

      Hope not

      • SesquipedalianPokedex

        A liker of HMs?

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      Well for all we know the riding Pokemon thing is only for specific areas like before. The HM are of course meant to limit us and give us road blocks lol

      • Wes

        Well they may not be as necessary anymore, seeing as how in the Treehouse video we saw literal road blocks.

    • Anon

      Maybe the saddle thing is the hm and we put it on pkmn to use their help

  • TheSunnyMonster6893

    Just saw someone point out that in the quick scene where the battle royal is loading up one of the Player characters doesn’t have a hat!!! lol

  • TheRece25

    You guys. . . What if the bracelet makes Pokemkon Mega and Shape Change like Ash Greninja.. But.. if the Pokmon Cant do that.. due to not being fully evolved or not having a mega.. it Powers up the Attack after filling up sync gage like ok Pokemon Wii game

  • Nickerton

    Im loving the hula dance moves for these… special power-ups

  • Ultron

    I kinda have a feeling this synergy thing will act sort of like the combo moves from the Hoenn contests, where the type of your pokemon depends on the move it uses. It’s probably more intricate but that’s what I’m thinking.

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      I could see that. Otherwise they’d have to program so many moves to look super.

      • Ultron

        That’s what I was thinking.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Or better yet only usable in FREE FOR ALLS

      • Ultron

        Yeah, that’s possible

        • EarthenWarrior

          Imagine the Ground Type super move
          EARTHBREAK
          AND ALL CONSUMING SHOCKWAVE OF SEISMIC FORCE

          • Ultron

            Sounds like fissure but more deadly

  • Wow. Super Moves, Amie, CoroCoro Pokemon, New Areas, Riding various Pokemon, and Traveling by Boat! Stop S/M; I’ll get a heart attack! Rf.

  • Well, the one thing I’m really concerned about is that there’s no evil team that has been seen yet. If there’s none in the game…. Tha
