The November issue of Japanese comic CoroCoro has started to leak online! This issue brings news on the mysterious Type: Null as well as some additional details on Alolan Grimer. Check out the scans and translations below!

Scans

Translations

  • Confirms Ilima (pink haired person next to Hau) as the first Trial Captain
  • Alolan Grimer is Poison/Dark-type.  It’s new look comes from eating Alolan garbage
  • Type: Null’s evolution is Shiruvadi – When Type: Null finds a trainer it trusts, it breaks its seal and becomes Shiruvadi.
  • Shiruvadi has a special item called Memory that gives it the power to be any type in conjunction with its ability, AR System. Also has a new attack called Multi Attack which changes its type based on the held item
  • Jangmo-o first evolves into Jarango, then into Jararanga
  • Both Jarango and Jararanga are Dragon/Fighting-type
  • The Pokémon Sun & Moon anime will premiere with an hour long special on November 17th
  • Samson Oak is the principal of the school that Ash will enroll in

 NOTE: There seems to be some understandable confusion on whether or not Shiruvadi is actually an evolution of Type:Null, or a forme change, or something else. The Japanese word for evolution, 進化 (しんか), is specifically used between the two. Showing that, despite the little aesthetic change and the special breaking the seal artwork, Shiruvadi is indeed Type:Null’s evolution. 

  • JJ Knight

    Poison/Dark? Very interesting. I like it!

  • Paulsey

    hoping for comfey evolution !!!

  • zess

    Please release Alolan Persain!

  • Shady

    How serebii could be that fast?

  • Paulsey

    i never refreshed a page that fast and frequently ! The hype is reaaaal !!!

  • zess

    Wonder what it is about Alola that sends pokemon to the dark side?

    • JJ Knight

      Ash losing the Kalos League. Again.

  • Paulsey

    Can someone please give me the link to the actual corocoro leak posts ?

    • Shady

      That’s not official source …someof the fans just pre-order the magazine.

      • Paulsey

        yeah i know , but where do they post these images ?

        • Shady

          Usually I found them on 4chan but serebii surprise me this time.

    • zess

      I’ve always wondered where they were posted but never bothered to find out. That would be good to know.

      • Shady

        I thought 4chan is the fastest one but I was wrong.

  • AdamH06

    Nice! Also, it doesn’t matter if we don’t get much. We have a trailer coming up in two days anyway 🙂

  • Aly el Din Mohamed

    Why so many alolan forms are dark types ? And whats with the stupid beard ?? Why most pokemon in this gen are either too cute or too retard looking ?..

    • zess

      Maybe senator Palpatine is the head trial champion or something.

    • My guess is Gen 1 don’t have dark types at all and this is their weird way of fixing it.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Eeew Poison/Dark

  • Ben Rhodes

    It might just be me but, adding Dark to it seems a little lazy on this one, though I guess it makes sense, it keeps STAB from Poison moves but it could have made a cool Fire type

  • NesMeister

    There are two arrows pointing the next page next to Grimer, maybe Alolan Muk is shown as well

  • Shady

    For sure team Skull will use that it looks like their logo.

  • Aly el Din Mohamed

    There should be alolan trubbish

    • zess

      Since grimers new form comes from eating Alola garbage, trubbish should get one because it’s technically made out of garbage.

  • zess
    • CallistoFox

      Thats pretty creative tbh 😮

  • Skinnyfatt

    apparently jang-o evolves in dragon/fighting

    • TigerMasku

      How did you know that?

      • Skinnyfatt

        joes twitter

      • Paulsey

        the leaker said it but did not provide pictures

    • zess

      Fighting monk dragon! That would be nice!

    • Fresco

      4x Fairy weakness FTW

  • Shady

    Wat the hell the leaker waiting for …….I am looking fot Type:Null info.

    • zess

      I know! I need to see it without the mask!

      • Shady

        I think they will show us wat the pkmns that wat Type:Null created from.

        • zess

          Most likely that and a bit of background information.

    • cody

      maybe he died

  • JJ Knight

    According to Serebii, Jangmo-o evolves into Dragon/Fighting and Type: Null’s type depends on the item held, and it evolves!

    • So it IS Arceus lite… someone stole its DNA?

  • TigerMasku

    How many Alolan dark types we got now?

    Dark Mewoth
    Dark Grimer
    Dark Rattata
    Dark Raticate

    Maybe Alolan muck and Persian too which makes it a total of 6 Pokémon.

    It seems game freak is trying to give Kanto Pokémon cooler types.

    • JJ Knight

      That’d probably be it for Dark Types, especially if they’re not introducing much new ones this Gen.

    • Shady

      I am afraid they did that cuz no new dark type there.

  • Reece

    Love how I’m waking up just as the info is surfacing
    This dragon/fighting evo of Jangmo-o could be promising, I’ve wanted one for so long (though Meinshao could’ve had the potential but clearly not)

    • EarthenWarrior

      Clearly not is right

  • And all the people who said they were going to sleep in the previous article…

    • EarthenWarrior

      I just woke up

      • You alarm clocked just for this? Cool!

        Or ya may have some corocoro senses…

  • EarthenWarrior

    I said this many times people Alolan Forms are taking away new Pokemon from your faces

    • AdamH06

      A) We still don’t know the full Alola Pokedex so I wouldn’t speculate how many new ones we’re getting yet
      B) Alolan Forms (or regional variants) is a pretty ace gimmick. Gives some Pokemon more environment to work around

    • Victor Troche

      Agreed, not a big fan of these alolan forms, this just means that actual brand new pokes will be severely limited and the rest are just Alolan Variants

      • Aly el Din Mohamed

        Sugimori said in an interview before that he want to limit the number of new pokemon because he is afraid that one day there will be too many pokemon and people wont ne able to remember them all

        • Well I already have difficulty remembering all of the original 151… so I can see his point.

          • Aly el Din Mohamed

            I dont have problem remembering 700+ pokemon and Im pretty sure most people does

          • Gamer Dragon07

            I can remember most of the pokemon c:

          • Vlad

            I honestly used to be really on point I do now frequently find myself saying “what’s that one called again?” Especially in references to gen 5 and 6

          • Pharap

            I remember all the ones except the ones that are particularly forgettable or that I’m purposely trying to retcon.

        • Pharap

          They should have made the pan/simi monkey lines the same pokemon with different forms.

        • Chirthorpe

          Then Sugimori is an idiot and needs to retire. it’s that simple. There’s no such thing as “too many Pokemon”, and that is the mindset the developers need to have.

          Besides, they had no qualms about making them all catchable in Gen 6 alone. 4 games, 721 pokemon.

          • PumpkinBomb

            I’m pretty sure the only reasion we stil get decent looking pokemon is because of sugimori, the rest of the designers seems to suffer from an excessive megaman obsession that they put in their designs.

          • Chirthorpe

            I feel like I must disagree. I’ve seen nothing particularly wrong with any new Pokemon design. But regardless, if Sugimori sticks to such a nonsense idea, he has no business staying in the business, since it means he’s clearly past it.

      • bn_xx

        i don’t see how this could be the case. it’s backwards reasoning. if anything, alolan variants will pad out the dex after an original line up has been decided, and that’s what they’ve said they work the longest on.

      • Vlad

        You people complain too damn much

    • Pharap

      Nobody liked Grimer anyway, and now they’ve made it worse.

      • Review Reviewer

        Better than a Garbodor.

        • SomeGuy

          I love Garbordor

          • Review Reviewer

            Not that they’re different anyways both are literal garbage.

        • Pharap

          True, but that’s basically saying a pool of toxic sludge is better than a broken bag of rubbish. Neither is very appealing.

          • Review Reviewer

            Comparing garbage to garbage is comparing Genwunners to poop.

      • Vlad

        Really? I’ve actually always loved Muk. I think it’s design is cool and he’s just a great poison type in my opinion. This alolan form is probably gonna be really ugly but whatever, I’m kinda over it.

    • SomeGuy

      Man they’re gonna make the number of new Pokémon that they want regardless of new features. It’s not a time constraint. It’s an actively made decision. They want less new Pokémon with each gen and take their time getting to 1000+.

      • Pharap

        It’s a time constraint.

        More pokemon = more time designing + more time reviewing designs + more time making models + more time making textures + more time writing stats + more time animating + more time drawing official art

        • SomeGuy

          No duh. But we’re also not talking about an indie developer. They have all the financial resources they could ever need at their disposal. And we’re not talking about a AAA HD action game. And most of the assets are being recycled from XY/ORAS. They could add more if they wanted. But the number of new Pokémon is definitely having diminishing returns. The difference in sales between having 90 new Pokémon or 180 is very likely negligible at best. So they’re taking their sweet time.

  • Shady

    Wow….Type: Null changes type based on items it holds, and that it evolves into a Pokémon called Shiruvuadi.

  • Shady

    No need for showing Alolan Meowth while Alolan Persian not there….but the last thing I was expected that Type: Null have an evolution.

    • Tev-Da-Trainer

      Same here. Type: Null looked like a stand alone Pokemon.

  • TigerMasku

    Type null looks like a final form evolution already, what it will evolve to will probably look so complex or stupid

    • zess

      I’m think it would look more complete than complex. Like more uniform rather than an amalgam of different pokemon.

    • Pharap

      I have to agree there. I was expecting it to be a single-form non-evolving artificial pokemon.

    • PumpkinBomb

      I hope the info is fake, because all I was waiting for is to hear about the helmet and see his face, it kind of felt like it had Zygard cells attached to the helment and I wanted to know if thats true, evolution just doesnt seem right on this one

      • Epic Ninfia

        The evo could be unmasked

  • So if the type null thing item hold is true, is this the reason why they are letting you see the type of the opponent on the bottom screen?

    Sort of like how they invented Team Preview just so they can let Zoroark’s ability exist without being too surprising.

    (Note that although Arceus already had it, Arceus was an event and never meant to be used in competitive.)

  • Ben Rhodes

    Oh Dragon/Fighting, I thought it would be, everyone kept telling me it would be Steel though

  • Gamer Dragon07

    Yes!I knew that Jangmo-o was going to become a dragon/fighting type from the description from the official website,even if it hasn’t been confirmed yet! *throws arms up into the air*

  • TigerMasku

    Jangmo-o why man?

    You will become a fairy’s slave you fool

  • NesMeister

    Didn’t that one Chinese Riddler equation states that Type:Null is a standalone

    • The Queen of Peace

      I feel like apart from the first bits of information he gave us he may be lying.

    • MelloMori

      I don’t recall them ever saying it was a standalone. The most you could be inferring is from their chart, which would simply mean that they didn’t know about the evo at the time.

  • The Queen of Peace

    I always thought jangmo-o would be a stegosaurus with those little tear drop shaped things on it’s back becoming plates. Sounds cool though ! First dragon fighting !

  • PumpkinBomb

    I hope they show us Type nulls face, and tell us how exactly does he get the helmet

  • NesMeister

    RIP Dragon/Steel Jangmo-o.

    • TigerMasku

      Noooooo……..

  • zess

    Hmmm if type:null was an attempt to recreate “god” then maybe that explains why it’s type changes based on the item it holds basically a faux Arceus. And it’s evolution Shiruvuadi kinda reminds me of the Hindu God Shiva Which (correct me if I’m wrong) is a God of destruction.

  • AuroraLights493

    ALOLAN GRIMER!!!
    It’s so ugly…I love it. xD

    • Pharap

      I was in agreement up until “I love it”

  • Shady

    Wat Shiruvadi could mean?

    • I’m not counting on connections to “Shiva” the hindu god, so I’m looking at hawaiian stuff.

      Hm… do you see any Japanese puns or anything in that name?

      • MelloMori

        Shiru itself is a Japanese verb, meaning something like “to know”, so perhaps that part implies its all knowing, or at least its very intelligent. Vadi has a few too many possibilities to be certain of what it means.

        • Pharap

          Shiru could also be from Shirubaa.

  • PumpkinBomb

    did the leaker fell asleep or got murdered by gamefreaks orsomething ? where the hell is he/she !??

  • Sunny Mahmud

    I was hoping for a Alolan Grimer and Muk, especially for it to be Poison/Dark! However its reason to me personally seems less interesting then mine XD

    • It was splashed by coolant or it was exposed to water..?

  • GameDevDan

    I wonder if we’ll get alolan forms for every Kanto pokemon that didn’t receive an evolution or mega in later gens? Seems to be the trend so far. A little fan-service for the long-forgotten pokes.

    • I need pre-evos for the following: Scyther, Sneasel, Gligar, Yanma, Misdreavus…

      • zess

        No skarmory? I would love for a pre-evo for that it’s flavor dex eludes to one.

        • I was looking through the Little Cup banlist 🙂

          But yeah, Skarm pre-evo would be cool!

  • Shady

    Manga from the same source he called “ugly shigeru”. http://is.4chan.org/vp/1476264888905.jpg

    • Gamer Dragon07

      Why does he look like Blue/Gary??

      • Shady

        Yeah that clear …..Maybe he isthe gradson of Alolan Oak.

    • The kid looks like a druggie… is he evil or anything?

      • Pharap

        Gary got hooked on meth and devolved into this thing.

        Crystal meth – not even once.

        • I’m pretty sure drugs don’t cause tooth deformation… he’d need something more on top of the meds to achieve that…

          • Pharap

            Tobacco makes people’s teeth yellow.

            Maybe he’s been flossing with chains of meth XD

  • “Shiruva di”

    Hmm… “Silver Body”? “Silver D”?

  • Pharap

    Alolan Grimer is worse than Kanto Grimer.

    • zess

      The teeth make it even more unsightly 😝

      • Pharap

        I knew something other than the yellow looked weird but I couldn’t put my finger on it. Thanks for pointing that out XD

    • The Queen of Peace

      I feel like rather than just adding dark they could change it from poison. Like make it a water type because of alolas pure waters… obviously that wouldn’t suit this Grimer’s design

      • Pharap

        I dunno, it’s pretty hard to make sludge that isn’t poisonous.
        They could have set it on fire or something.

        • It could become fossil fuels, mud or baking dough…

          • Pharap

            Oil would make sense, but that’s still poison.
            Mud would be lame, but pure ground or ground water might make sense.

            Baking dough… Erm… Pancakes?

          • Well, come to think of it… mud is already “kinda” done, it’d just be Palossand 1.5.

            Yeah, so people cook baking dough forme Grimer and feed it to Raichu, yes, that’s right..!

          • Pharap

            Palossand is sand, not mud.
            Mud would make more sense than half dark.

            Seems legit 😛

          • Well that’s why it’s “kinda”. And even if IRL wet sand != mud, Palossand operates and likely moves around kinda like Grimer anyway.

          • Pharap

            There’s deep geological reasond why sand != mud.

            The reason Palossand moves similar to Grimer that is probably because sand is a fluid and grime/sludge is a viscous fluid.

    • PumpkinBomb

      I dont know why they are tying to make pokemon look ridiculous in this gen, I’m afraid this might be yokai watch effect…

      • Pharap

        I think it’s likely looking at the designs Yokai Watch uses.

        Some of the Yokai Watch creatures I like, like the cats, but stuff like Mochismo and Slack-a-slash are just plain awful.

  • JJ Knight

    Sure is taking a while to get the remaining pages of CoroCoro…

    • NesMeister

      Not to mention the obvious other page on the other side of the existing image

  • Ben Rhodes

    Not including ones we’ve seen in their original form, that have megas, already have an alolan form or are legendary, or evolve into a none gen 1 pokemon, here are the only gen 1 pokemon left who can be Alolan form:
    Ekans and Arbok
    Nidoran♂, Nidorino, Nidoking
    Nidoran ♀, Nidorina, Nidoqueen
    Venonat and Venomoth
    Diglett and Dugtrio
    Geodude, Graveller, Golem
    Ponyta and Rapidash
    Doduo and Dotrio
    Koffing and Wheezing

    I’m hoping for a Fire/Fairy Rapidash, I can see Koffin becoming Rock/Poison, I can see an Ice Geodude, I’d have thought Ekans/Arbok would have suited Dark/Poison but I’m not sure they’ll give us the same Type combo for more that one Unrelated alolan form, but for the rest I dunno.

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Most stuff I read on Alolan Ekans/Arbok is that they’re pure Fighting

      • zess

        I would Hate that at least have them retain their poison typing

        • UnburdenedLegume

          Poison/Fighting then. Love the Croagunk line

  • Shady

    I like Alolan Grimer but I have some doubts about this leak y Meawoth is behind that Grimer I didn’t see this before ,y they show Gumshoos’s shoot again?….soes anybody remember if the original Grimer was shown in SM trailers or not?

    • TigerMasku

      I think this leak might be fake but we will have to wait and see

      • UnburdenedLegume

        If it was fake Serebii wouldnt cover it lmao

        • Uh, Serebii made mistakes and covered fakes before… like the gen 5 fake below…

      • Shady

        Regardless if it’s fake or not this leaker is just an asshole wat the hell he waiting for?

        • Pharap

          More attention and more people.

          • Ben

            I agree that he’s an asshole, but I doubt he’s doing it for attention since he’s an anonymous uploader. Joe Merrik won’t say who it is.

          • Pharap

            Hooked on power.

            Unless he’s told Joe and it’s actually Joe that’s holding out on us…

            Actually that would make a lot of sense.
            Joe waiting for more Serebii/Twitter traffic.

  • What the hell he waiting fooooor?
    Love me like…

  • Pharap

    I don’t like the riddler, but since there’s going to be a wait…
    Grimer is featured in this image:
    http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/001/168/962/c6d.png
    But not in this one:
    http://pokejungle.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/riddler666.png

    No idea if that’s supposed to mean anything.

    • It’d be a very bold prediction to say all of the unscratched Pokemon all have Alola forms. (EDIT: Or at least apprearing in the Alolan dex.)

      Also Charizard is a ride Pokemon which discredits this a bit… unless Charizard really ain’t in the dex and is just a guest only for the ride feature…

      • Pharap

        I dunno what the context was, I just remember people throwing these around.

        I partly suspect Charizard being a ride pokemon means it may only be there as a ride pokemon and nothing more. Though I admit, they could have chosen a cooler flying type.

        I think the Riddler intended to mean it’s in the game but not alolan, but again, I take everything he says with a mountain of salt. I just put this here to give people something to talk about.

        • Well should it be true, I’ll just remember Riddler and keep them bookmarked until the next game.

  • Leo

    What’s up with all the shitty dark types????

    • Pharap

      I liked the Meowth.
      Raticate was getting bad.
      This is a whole other level of awful.

      • Leo

        I didn’t like any of them. I won’t mind them if we actually get new good dark type pkm though.

        • Pharap

          Just the dark ones or all the alolans?

          • Leo

            I was talking about the dark ones, but I don’t really mind the other alolan forms. I actually like marowak

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Inb4 Ash gets Alolan Grimer and Bond Phenomenons with it ffs

    • Pharap

      That moment when everyone is excited about Ash-Grimer being available on the Gen 8 Demo XD

    • How about James…

      • UnburdenedLegume

        James gets a Bewear, I just know it

      • EarthenWarrior

        I theorized that Jessie will get a Salandit and as for James what about Sandygast it kinda fits them

        • Depends if Sandygast eats James just like Victreebel does.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Nahhhhhhhhhh

  • Ben

    Has it ever taken this long between the first image leaking and all the rest?

  • Leo

    I really hope Jangmo-o’s ends up being Dragon/Fighting, such an interesting combination. Hopefully it’ll have an anti-fairy ability

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Judging by its abilties I really assumed it would be Dragon/Steel

    • Ben

      Weakness to Ice, Fairy (ouch), Dragon, Psychic and Flying.
      No immunities.
      Resistances: Dark, Fire, Grass, Electric, Water, Bug, Rock.

      • Leo

        That’s why I said hopefully it’ll have an anti-fairy ability. Call it Iron Scales or whatever

        • Paulsey

          it has soundproof and bulletproof , so maybe when it evolves it’ll get something like these abilities or a new one but with the same principle , while only blocking psychic or ice or flying type moves. Because lets be honest , stopping all fairy type attacks would make it a BEAST AND OVERPOWERED

          • Pharap

            It would still be weak to things like Xatu and Jynx.

          • Leo

            Not all fairy attacks, but at least half its weakness to it. Knights wore metal armours so its ability could be based on that (and it being half fighting would still make sense). Half its weakness to fairy and flying and it’s perfect

          • Paulsey

            But still overpowered don’t you think ?
            I just checked out both abilities , and while bulletproof blocks mainly attacks of types he resists , soundproof seems like an excellent ability since it blocks fairy type moves of the likes of hyper voice , disarming voice , it also blocks snarl and perish song , bug buzz and boom burst.

          • Leo

            One dazzling gleam or moonblast and it’s gone

          • Paulsey

            so is hydreigon.

          • Leo

            Poor it

          • Leo

            What I dislike is that fairies are the new dragons. We need more powerful poison and steel types

          • EarthenWarrior

            Eeeyup

          • Leo

            I might join you in your quest to kill fairies

          • EarthenWarrior

            I definitely need more minions

        • EarthenWarrior

          Y’all are nuts to think it’s just going to get an anti fairy ability
          You guys wanted Dragon/Fighting and now you gotta fear fairies even more now

    • BLACK IYCE

      I don’t see why that’s necessary honestly. Plenty of Pokémon have 4x weaknesses to things but are still VERY good. All of the pseudos come to mind besides Goodra and metagross. Half are 4x weak to ice. Hydreigon is already 4x weak to fairy. Tyranitar is 4x weak to fighting. All still incredibly useful and powerful Pokémon

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Maybe I’m just overly positive, but I like Alolan Grimer. The typing is meh, I would have preferred Poison/Electric or maybe pure Ground but design-wise I like it

    • Pharap

      Fire wouldn’t match the design at all.

      Unless you mean changing the design to give it that type.

      (P.S. I think you’re overly positive)

      • UnburdenedLegume

        I edited the post, I meant Ground but for some reason I typed Fire lol

    • Nintendalek42

      Wholeheartedly agree, I like it’s cute, zombieish design, but either of those typings would have been better than bland and unimaginative poison/dark.

  • Pharap

    Grimer must have been singing “all I want for christmas is my two front teeth”.

    • zess

      Imagine Muk with a big toothy grin like Gengar, creepy 😨

      • Pharap

        Oh god, that’s going to be a real thing now.
        You’ve jinxed it, we’re doomed XD

  • NesMeister

    What if the Jangmo-o evolution/Type:Null evolution was so:

    A: Horrific and nightmare fuel worthy that the leaker had a heart attack and died

    B: Amazing and awesome that the leaker wants the magazine page for himself and refuses for the perfection of said page to be tainted by being viewed by the internet

    C: Ugly/disappointing/bad that he didn’t want to disappoint the fans and just didn’t take a picture

    • Pharap

      More likely it was so awful that he died laughing.

    • TR3Y

      A sounds like a Monty Python reference. “Then at that point the animator suffered a fatal heart attack”

      B I am not so sure about

      C possibly

      I would like to throw in a 4th one here

      D made up the rest of it and doesn’t want to be crucified by the internet for his/her lie

  • Made a video of it https://youtu.be/1Dg12AewypQ

    • zess

      Shouldn’t you have waited until all of corocoro leaked?

  • SomeGuy

    Hm. The lack of further images is disappointing.

  • CoolGlaceon

    So.. Alolan Grimer is pretty much Shiny Grimer
    Also, Type: Null has an evolution?! I was not expecting that

  • cliswp

    You could at last admit you got your info from serebii

  • EarthenWarrior
    • PumpkinBomb

      whats this ??

      • rhomba

        It’s a list of the supposed amount of new pokemon for each type.

    • Ithsme

      I don’t see why you’re happy about that. :/

      • EarthenWarrior

        I’m not happy, I’m just telling you that if Type Null does in fact evolve this list would be proven wrong

      • zess

        That means there’s hope for his ground fighting or whatever he was pining for.

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Cast your wrath upon them!!

      • EarthenWarrior

        My wrath is ceaseless and fueled by rage!

  • Tev-Da-Trainer

    OMG where are the other pages at? lol

  • Shady

    This asshole keep teasing the ppl ….I don’t think he will gonna leak anything. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Cuj–MEUEAAE1Tk.jpg

    • PumpkinBomb

      what the hell is wrong with this asshat

    • EarthenWarrior

      Grrrrrrrrggg I’LL RIP HIS LEGS OFF

    • Ben

      What an ASH hole.

    • Paulsey

      hey shady , plz can you give me the link ?

      • Shady

        Just if u speak Japanese to tell him wat kind of asshole is him.

        • Paulsey

          i speak a little japanese , but its just anime basics ( XD ) so, no i can’t tell him what an asshole he’s being, id love to shoot him in the foot tho !

          • Shady

            Of course I can give u the link but I don’t want make this jerk famous.

          • Pharap

            I can.

            Go to him and say “Oi, aho! Chikusho kono yarou!”

  • Superpikachu14

    Alolan Muk has to be confirmed now! Can’t wait!

  • PumpkinBomb

    someone tell this fucker to post the photos already

    • CoolGlaceon

      I mean, I’m grateful that he’s posting anything at all. He’s not obligated to post anything imo.

      • PumpkinBomb

        well he either post the whole thing at once or just not post it at all, but teasing us like this is unacceptable

        • Paulsey

          second that.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Don’t you dare say that, don’t you dare give him the rights to deny us info because we are all thinking that would be a dick move

        • OG Bulba

          Ah I’m ok with it I think we’ve been showered with enough news cuase if we get more we’re gonna turn into lil cry babies: “Waawaa I want to know everything about Pokemon Sun and Moon whether it’s official or leaked but wait I don’t want to know everything so it won’t be ruined for me”

  • Ithsme

    Is that all? One page?

    • Paulsey

      no , but the leaker won’t share anything else….

      • Ithsme

        Hmm. :/ Someone else will probably.

      • The Queen of Peace

        L.O.L I’d do that if I were him. Don’t worry, someone else will leak it

      • PumpkinBomb

        what a dickhead

      • BLACK IYCE

        The rest of the info may be fake then. But are we certain they are actually refusing to share anything or is this just a case of their other scans not coming fast enough?

        • Paulsey

          he’s literally teasing us with non pokemon scans , just to say : HEYAAA i have this corocoro info and y’all don’t !

          • BLACK IYCE

            That’s actually really funny to me lol. You all are only making it worse by getting all worked up and letting him get to you. Someone else will leak the rest just be patient. But then again they could also be a fan of multiple different fandoms and are leaking info for all of them not just pokemon

  • Paulsey

    I’m beginning to think that the unsupported info he has given is fake , i mean jangmo-o evo would be awesome and type null evo too would be both fantastic and unexpected , but i personally think that its fake and that he would make that up. I mean just look at the way he’s been acting ,teasing fans that way.

    • Shady

      I post something like this before …..yeah Type: Null looks like a sweeper in trailer how is that thing could have an evolution.

      • BLACK IYCE

        It’s designed to take on legendary Pokémon… that’s why it could have an evo lol

        • Paulsey

          but its ALREADY designed to fight legendary Pokemon , why would it need an evolution ? Unless this isn’t an evolution , but a radical form change…

          • BLACK IYCE

            Well, yes it’s designed to take them on already but that doesn’t necessarily mean in its current form. It’s description states that it’s true power is locked away behind that mask. So I could see it having an evolution that rids itself of the mask or an item that causes it to form change permanently.

        • Shady

          Type: Null on of my favorite pkmn in this gen if he have an evolution I couldn’t imagine how badass will look like ..and I want it but I am not sure that will happen.

    • BLACK IYCE

      While I always leave room for anything, I don’t think they’re faking anything. I mean a dragon/fighting Jangmo-o evo isn’t all that’s farfetch’d, and seeing as Type:Null is designed to take on legendary Pokémon giving it an “evolution”, (I don’t think it’s an evolution in the traditional sense, I’m imagining a wishiwashi school form scenario), also makes sense.

    • Epic Ninfia

      Its the same person who leaked the grimer hows it fake

  • BLACK IYCE

    I’d just like to point out that Alolan Muk is about to be a beast! His only weakness will be ground. I never realized how good a poison/dark type combination was. Poison gets rid of literally all the dark types weaknesses and dark type gets rid of half of poison’s in the psychic type. Just wow! 😀

    • Paulsey

      true true true , soo looking forward to using it!

    • Ben Rhodes

      Try Skuntank for that, to see how it is before S/M

      • BLACK IYCE

        Skuntank is pretty decent from what I’ve used of it. Muk will have different stats and a different move pool though, in fact Muk has higher stats in both attack and special defense and defense

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Drapion also Poison/Dark

        • BLACK IYCE

          And Drapion is a veritable monster lol. Alolan muk will be incredible

    • CoolGlaceon

      *cough* Levitate *cough* from eating too many fluffy round pancakes

      • BLACK IYCE

        I laughed waaayyyy to hard at this lmao!!!

    • Natsu

      If only it didn’t look like literal sh*t. I loved the sand monster Grimer and Muk ideas. I guess GF didn’t want to take the limelight off Pallosand and its buddy.

      • BLACK IYCE

        Well…muk and Grimer ARE supposed to be piles of sludge… if you’ve never seen what a pile of sludge looks like (1) you are a lucky soul, and (2) this new design is A LOT more faithful to the concept lol.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Still gotta worry about EVERYTHING having Earthquake

      • BLACK IYCE

        One thing I’ve always both loved and hated about the meta. Love it because it’s hella predictable and easy to plan for. Hate it because literally everything has it and I have to take away creative choices due to earthquak weakness

  • Paulsey

    The same source says that Shiruvadi has got the ability “AR System” which changes its type based on the hold item,.

    • Ithsme

      So. . . Arceus anyone?

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Bruh Null is literally a human made Arceus. Anyone who still wants to deny this is blind

        • BLACK IYCE

          IF this information is true! But yes! It is indeed, making this potentially the deepest Pokémon games we’ve ever gotten lol. Because if it is trying to be Arceus level strong then you have to wonder what it’s mission is, because that’s an insanely powerful Pokémon lol

  • Shady

    Text translated by google”Yabuten version Pokemon Iwanko, because the color of the stone is said there different, I wonder which delivery any one of those of”

    I think he mean there is another pkmn have an exclusive evolution form just like Rockruff.

    • Pharap

      Google translate isn’t very good with Japanese.
      It thought Zubat’s ability was “sexual fresh green”:
      http://i.imgur.com/jgmneTC.png

      • Shady

        Here is the text translate it by ur self. やぶてん版ポケモンのイワンコ、石の色が違うとか言ってるから、そのうち配信とかあるのかなぁ

  • UnburdenedLegume

    I have grown more fondness for Steel and Poison types lately

  • Ithsme

    Alolan Grimer is a lazy design. :/

    • Pharap

      Not just lazy, it’s also ugly.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Can’t wait to see what asinine reason it became a Dark type just by eating Alolan trash

      • BLACK IYCE

        Gamefreak just wanted it to be dark type 😀

        • Pharap

          Which is a horrible misuse of region forms.

          • Brandon

            LOL, who are you people to decide?

          • temporario23

            Fans.

          • Stevosan

            You win the Internet.

        • UnburdenedLegume

          As much as I want more Dark types, I want them to be brand new Pokemon and no redesigns of old ones

      • Feralligator

        All the pancakes that went bad made Grimer a dark type

    • BLACK IYCE

      I mean… what were you expecting them to due with a pile of sludge though?

      • Ithsme

        They didn’t HAVE to make it another pile of sludge though.

      • Wes

        It could’ve been a pile of sand, like most were actually expecting.

        • Akiran Drake (Nightshade)

          We already have one of those pretty much, its just in the shape of a sand castle.

        • BLACK IYCE

          Pallosand???

      • Pharap

        Make it a pile of magma, or a pile of mud.
        Or a pile of muddy sludge.
        Or say it was originally a water type, Kanto polluted it, and now it’s in its original water form (i.e. clear and blue).

        Tbh I’ve got nothing against the typing, it’s the design and justification that I hate.

        • Garth St.Claire

          All of those ideas are kinda boring/stupid. There are just some pokemon that shouldn’t have regional forms and “pile of sludge with a face” is one of them imho.

          • Dubb

            Na cos in the Kanto games there was a building in Celadon I believe that was polluted with grimer that you had to cross water to get to. Would have been a nice throwback

          • Pharap

            Kanto in Gen2.

          • Pharap

            At least magma would make sense given the volcano.

            Tbh I would rather they forgot about Grimer too, but the question was “what were you expecting them to due [sic] with a pile of sludge though?”

        • Review Reviewer

          Wouldn’t really make sense why they become magma, and then it would be a copy of Gen 3’s Lava pokemon.

          • Vlad

            What? Becoming a lava beast makes way more sense than eating trash and becoming dark -_-

          • Epic Ninfia

            The same game where a fish becomes an octupus doesn’t need to make sense

          • Epic Ninfia

            No reason to whine about it when u can just not use it

          • Review Reviewer

            For the garbage slime Pokemon it does.

          • SixthSun

            Slugma/Magcargo is Gen 2, fyi.

          • Review Reviewer

            Really, wow1 I thought houndoom was Gen 2 and Ariados was Gen 4, probably because of the anime with the first episode of Gen 4 had Ariados, and Slugma/Magcargo being more viewed in Gen 3.

        • Jon Idoncair

          any of your ideas sounds loads better than what was shown ugh

        • Nick

          Well we haven’t actually heard the full justification yet – so far each Alolan form has had a full paragraph of description to go along with it. Grimer’s may very well be much cooler than we think, and who knows what Muk might look like?

          • Pharap

            They’ve said it became dark by eating Alolan rubbish.
            How Alolan rubbish is ‘darker’ than Kanto rubbish is a mystery.

    • temporario23

      This thing was absolutely unnecessary. This has got to be one of GF’s dumbest ideas ever.

      • Review Reviewer

        Their dumbest idea was making Pokemon GO it fuels Genwunners like hatred.

        • Epic Ninfia

          No its pokemon in real life

          • Z-BURST

            That string was roasting 🙂

      • Epic Ninfia

        How about instead of crying u just ignore it

        • temporario23

          How about you go fuck yourself?

          • Epic Ninfia

            How about u be a man not a sensitive bitch crying like mommy didn’t get u what u wanted. Those 5 year olds making a scene.in the mall ya thats you

          • temporario23

            Are you serious, bitch? Talking about being a man when apparently you’re the one who couldn’t handle my opinion on the design and started replying to me and everyone who has the same opinion to not whine about it, either because you’re mad people don’t like the same things you do or because you’re just a fuckin’ conformist. So, really, who’s the child here? Do everyone a favor and GTFO!

          • Epic Ninfia

            You realize instead of crying. Again you can ignore it if u don’t like it

            If i didn’t like baby food i wouldn’t go on a form and say baby food is garbage i would just not eat it

          • temporario23

            See, this is why I replied the way I did. People like you are annoying as fuck! Always have to tell anyone what they should do or not with their opinions. “If I didn’t like … I wouldn’t go on a form and say … is garbage” – I’ll ask again: Are you fucking serious? This is a comment section! People are supposed to say what think about the subject of the news, which is what happened. For fuck’s sake…

          • Epic Ninfia

            I only tell people that if their assholes i like people who say their opinions politely we all need to be PC

            An opinion is said nicely. Shit talking isn’t an opinion

          • temporario23

            Yes, it is. I express my opinion the way I want, specially if I’m not offending anyone, which was the case when I stated my opinion on grimer. And no, we don’t all need to be PC. But that explains a lot, I should have figured by now, I watched South Park: You don’t get to tell people what they should or shouldn’t be, people are whatever they want to be, so fuck you and that PC bullshit!

          • Epic Ninfia

            We all need to be nice unless ur a comedian u should be pc

            This world neees to be a hapoy world of cotton candies and rainbows shitting on stuff isn’t gonna help get there we all need to be positive and love everything and be nice

          • temporario23

            You gotta be a troll. I can’t believe you’re being real…

          • Epic Ninfia

            Im not the world needs to be nicer

          • Nick

            You really need to get over yourself

          • Nick

            Wait are you ten. Like actually. Cus you don’t understand how the real world works. I really don’t care about this anymore, I just hope that you understand how hypocritical you are and narrow minded you are.

          • Nick

            Just because you think that everyone in the world has to be happy and perfect, doesn’t mean they are. People in this world are hurting and in pain, and you go around saying they NEED to be happy and positive, which causes them more pain. People like you who force people to be things make me sick. I’m a pansexual guy, and a Christian, so trust me I know both sides of the coin. You’re a hypocrite, saying that guy needs to help people and not comment WHILE YOU COMMENT MORE THAN HIM. Saying everyone needs to be nice WHILE YOU INSULT AND HARASS HIM. Please get over yourself and shape up

          • Epic Ninfia

            He called me a terrorist the only time i insult is when they are racist other then that im positive what does ur sexuality have to do with wanting to spread positivity. And erase negativity from the world

            Being positive doesn’t put them in more pain. Again i only went off on him cuz he called me a terrorist om not a hypocrite i just despise being grouped in with those goat fuckers

            You only hate positivity because your life is sad and you have probably never been happy

          • Nick

            Wait are you ten. Like actually. Cus you don’t understand how the real world works. I really don’t care about this anymore, I just hope that you understand how hypocritical you are and narrow minded you are :/

          • Epic Ninfia

            Im not narrow minded ik how the world works just cuz the world is negative doesn’t mean the world has to be. Be a leader not a follower set an example for future generations

            Negativity is the reason people get depressed and commit suicide

          • Nick

            dude just stop wasting your time. You are the reason people get depressed. Just stop being mean and negative

          • Epic Ninfia

            So people get depressed because of people who spread positivity im not mean ane negative unless ur a bigot

          • Nick

            Dude, if you’re in college like you claim, you really need to shape up your grammar and spelling. Also, why would you be negative to a bigot? Yes they shouldn’t be one, but that doesn’t mean they deserve to be hated. Also can we just stop this conversation, it’s pointless.

          • Epic Ninfia

            Because i type fast and i don’t need to worry about grammar cuz the internet isn’t that type of place

            Bigots deserve it their racism and stereotypes and stuff

          • Epic Ninfia

            No im in college

          • Epic Ninfia

            Im nice to all but bigots

          • Epic Ninfia

            You remind me of those people who went off on starbucks cuz their red cups weren’t Christmas enough

          • temporario23

            I’m not american so I have not idea what you’re talkin’ about.

          • Epic Ninfia

            Not an excuse

          • temporario23

            It’s not a matter of being an excuse. It’s a matter of “I literally have no clue about the event you’re talking about”.

          • Mohammad Yasin

            your life must suck if you feel the need to spread negativity I feel bad for u

          • temporario23

            lol, another one. Fuck off, dude!

          • Mohammad Yasin

            in America starbucks made their coffee cups red and not Christmas enough and on facebook they got attacked for not being Christmas enough or not getting into the Christmas spirit over a cup

          • temporario23

            lol That’s because americans are dumb af.

          • Epic Ninfia

            Thats you with the grimer

          • Epic Ninfia

            Yes they should do it nicely and with class

          • Epic Ninfia

            Ok entitled child people are being killed and your over here being unproductive and crying about a pokemon design when u can go actually help society against rapists and shit

          • temporario23

            Really, that cliché bullshit argument? Well, I gotta ask then, what the fuck are you doing here either? Nah, I get it. Chop chop, fuck pokémon, let’s all help people who are being raped and shit cause this world is certainly lacking on people more specialized to do that aka the police.

          • Epic Ninfia

            What i meant was. Its just a design u can ignore that has nothing to do. With how u live breathe and eat

          • Epic Ninfia

            The police isn’t enough we as a society need to make a difference

          • temporario23

            Dude, be my guest. if you wanna be a hero, then go for it. I couldn’t care less and I’m not obligated to.

          • Epic Ninfia

            Then your a selfish ass who wants everyone to die and the world to burn. I bet if an old lady fell over u would probably laugh at her

          • temporario23

            Probably. And yes, I’m selfish and a misanthrope. I admit without a problem and I don’t feel bad about it. So, yes, the world can burn as long as it doesn’t bother me.

          • Epic Ninfia

            Your a terrible person who has no remorse for anything people animals or.pokemon. you would probably kick a dog or light one on fire

            Again u remind me of the people who went off on Starbucks for not being Christmas enough

          • temporario23

            Yeah, wrong again, PC pussy. I don’t really need to keep explaining my way of thinking but maybe this time you stfu for good. I said I’m a misanthrope, I never said anything about animals. kick a dog? I’ll beat the shit out of someone who kicks a dog! I may laugh if I see a tragedy about like 300 people dying or wtv but I once cried when I was watching a documentary about chameleons because it showed a chameleon being run over and dying. I love animals, I despise people. It’s as simple as that.

          • Epic Ninfia

            Aww you poor thing

          • temporario23

            “We should be PC and nicer and blah blah blah”. You’re just another hypocrite.

          • Epic Ninfia

            Im not a hypocrite i love everything and everyone and we need to be a bicer society

          • temporario23

            LOL You’re preaching that shit yet you just mocked my affinity for animals. The only thing you love is yourself because you think you’re better than everyone else for having that PC mentality.

          • Epic Ninfia

            You don’t know me at all

            You were being so negative i assumed u hate everything

            I don’t love.myself i told u i love everything and were. All equal if i had to pick between me or my cat dying id pick me and save my cat

          • temporario23

            You don’t know me either. So probably, you shouldn’t have assumed things about me too. That example you just gave, I’d do the same. But only for an animal. Never for a person. I stopped trusting or caring about people a long time ago. Too much backstabbing and judgement.

          • Epic Ninfia

            So if someone raped a child u wouldn’t feel bad u would be like take that bitch i hate u

            I feel bad for ur family. U probably don’t give 2 shitd about them

          • Epic Ninfia

            Your probably never gonna get laid by any gender you poor thing

          • Epic Ninfia

            Pokemon is about loving everyone and everything and friendship how do u enjoy it

            U probably don’t have sny friends. Either

          • Epic Ninfia

            Its ironic u hate people for too much judgement yet your judging the grimer

            I want people to be pc so we can remove judgement from the world u know nice people exist right

          • Epic Ninfia

            If killing was legal u would probably mass genocide

          • Epic Ninfia

            Im nice cuz im muslim nd if u hate people don’t be social get a house in the woods or something

          • temporario23

            Well, go blow up yourself or something.

          • Epic Ninfia

            Thats not allowed in Islam the people who do it are wannabes terrorism is punishable by death

          • Epic Ninfia

            Actually no its not they get punishment in the afterlife playing god isn’t allowed killing is playing god

          • Epic Ninfia

            I tried to have a normal conversation fuck u bigot. Asshole u don’t know islam go suck trumps dick

          • Epic Ninfia

            U make me sick *spits* trump supporters ew

          • temporario23

            Bitch, you don’t get it. Fuck you. Fuck Trump. Fuck Rapists and Psychopaths. Fuck nice people. Fuck Furries. Fuck everybody. “I’m free of all prejudice. I hate everyone equally”. If you don’t want to blow up yourself, throw yourself off of a bridge, shot yourself in the head, whatever. Just die and stfu.

          • Mohammad Yasin

            your probably a mysoginist

          • Epic Ninfia

            We need to be nicer to each other in this world what i meant by pc is attitude we all need better attitudes to have a better world

            We all.need to be care bears

          • Mohammad Yasin

            last thing if u hate people then don’t play pokemon pokemon has people in it go play starfox or something don’t play games with people in it..

          • Mohammad Yasin

            go die in a prison cell murderer

          • Mohammad Yasin

            before you kill us all

          • Mohammad Yasin

            no life anti social loser who will never get laid by anyone and will never have someone to love you

          • Mohammad Yasin

            you need love

    • Review Reviewer

      Well, what did you expect from such a basic design? Ugh, stop expecting impossible stuff.

  • TigerMasku

    I can decide which one do I hate more

    The chinese riddler or this teasing *****************

    • TheGreatGuardian

      This leaker. At least with the riddler it’s promoting speculation, this guy is just being an ass right when we need him to be nice the most.

  • Pharap
    • PumpkinBomb

      I really lovee the old style of sugimori, this one seems like it has weight while the new artwork seems flat..

      • ha;h

        I mean the magazine paper is curved, maybe on the official full res artwork it’ll look beter

  • Wes

    Doesn’t a Type:Null evolution contradict the huge list of Pokemon types that the we got a few days ago? It had (1) after Null if I recall correctly.

    • Ithsme

      It would, but we don’t know that this person is telling the truth.

      • Wes

        Really, my point is that we have to consider them both to be lying until it’s proven one way or the other (though I’ll be bummed if the list is fake because I’ll have done all that math for nothing).

    • Nintendalek42

      Yeah, I thought that, but from what I can gleam from all the question marks and intervals in the list, the riddler doesn’t seem to know everything, and there’s 2 additional unrevealed normal types, so maybe they just didn’t know about this evolution (it might be a big deal lore wise). Or maybe it’s not an evolution but a form? That would seem slightly more logical to me.

  • Ultron

    Woah, ANOTHER dark alolan form before showcasing any new ones. How wonderful.

  • LastLittenFanStanding

    Alolan Grimer has to love butter

  • Nickerton

    Shiruvuadi sounds indian

  • UnburdenedLegume

    So Type: Null is now basically confirmed as a failed human experiment in recreating Arceus. And people still think its a children’s game lok

    • EarthenWarrior

      That’s not exactly the case
      Type:

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Yes I know what its purpose is, but its design is inspired by Arceus. Its mouthpiece is a combination of Arceus’s symbol with Zygarde hexagons imbedded on it

        • EarthenWarrior

          Kinda reaching

          • UnburdenedLegume

            My drug

  • Ben Rhodes

    I know why Meowth is there, it’s just Shrugging going “Ah well what can you do” after seeing Grimer

    • Pharap

      Meowth is mocking us because he knows Grimer is awful and he/she is Sugoi.

  • So, can we be sure that Alolan Grimer is confirmed? I’m starting to get suspicious that this is a hoax by the same source and then he later claims more info but no pictures buddy, imo, makes me think this Grimer was faked.

    • Ben

      If that Grimer was fake it would have a better design.

      • True. Which makes me lean on the real side. He says in bold letters on his site for Type: Null’s and Jangmo-o’s evolutions, “so this is unconfirmed”. He knew he was posting unconfirmed information. But apparently, Grimer is confirmed.

      • But then again, some fakes can be bad. So not sure what to believe right now given we have that unconfirmed info about Null and Jangmo-o.

      • Pharap

        Depends how lazy the person was and how much upset they were trying to cause.

        Plus it follows the pattern of Meowth and Raticate: change the colour and alter two features.

        Meowth: grey, eyes, whiskers
        Raticate: black, cheeks, whiskers
        Grimer: green, teeth, yellow

    • Ben

      In reality though, I think that might be very possible. Joe could be feeling realllly sheepish soon.

  • Pharap

    Joe Merrick’s new Tweet is changing the subject.
    I think he knows they’ve made a mistake.

    • He says in bold letters on his site for Type: Null’s and Jangmo-o’s evolutions, “so this is unconfirmed”. He knew he was posting unconfirmed information.

      • Pharap

        I mean the Grimer thing.
        This Grimer could be a fake and now he’s hoping people will forget about it.

  • PumpkinBomb

    whats that thing infront of grimer ???

    • Looks like one of the trials. Probably Mallow’s cause it takes place in a jungle.

      • PumpkinBomb

        the only word I can read is すがた which means “appearance”

        • PumpkinBomb

          never mind it just say Grimers alolan form, but the image under it seems like a new pokemon or something

    • Pharap

      It’s the Verdant Cave area.

      • PumpkinBomb

        I’m not talking about the screenshots

        • Pharap

          Circling the bit you’re talking about might help.

          • PumpkinBomb

            its right infront of grimer, seems like the rest of the image is on the second page

          • Pharap

            Above, below, to the right, to the left?

          • PumpkinBomb

            top left

  • ShinyXatu

    I totally forgot about CoroCoro, my life has been very distracting lately, but this is awesome news! Why are there unconfirmed parts though?

    • No pictures yet but it is from the same source that leaked the Grimer. And the leaker posted about three hours ago. Getting suspicious…

      • Ultron

        So this alolan grimer could be a fake?

        • No, Jungle and Serebii both have it up as confirmed. It’s just the Jangmo-o and Type: Null evolutions that are waiting to be confirmed. But something feels off.

          • Ultron

            Yeah but why is it taking this guy three hours to upload the other pages..?

          • Probably just being a dick and not sharing.

        • Pharap

          I’m begining to suspect it is fake and Serebii realised and is trying to prepare for the outcry XD

  • Pharap

    The more I think about it, the more it would have made sense if Grimer was originally a water type and it just got polluted.
    And Alola was the only place where it didn’t get polluted or Alola’s waters cleansed it.

    http://i.imgur.com/jwcv4AP.png

    Like @moonlightmarble:disqus said.

    • zess

      I could see that. It’s body could be slightly transparent with bubbles throughout.

      • Pharap

        I tried to get it transparent looking, but I was rushing the edit 😛

  • Alyssa Dunn

    i think alolan grimers teeth are actually milk cartons but it’s comprised of 75% alolan trash and 25% sludge

  • Ultron

    I want to see this supposed jangmo-o evo so I can see if it’s a griffin or not! >:I

  • r1907

    If you see the top left corner you can see something as (I’m guessing here) dragon scales and something like a claw. I’m guessing Jangmo-o evo might suffer the bipedal change as many others

  • PumpkinBomb

    what kind of douchebag tease people like this ?

    • zess

      Give someone the slightest amount of power and eventually they’ll abuse it.

      • Pharap

        Exactly why I don’t like the Riddler either.

        • rhomba

          We can thank the Riddler for this leakers actions.

          • Wes

            This leaker contradicts the Riddler. He’s either jeopardizing himself if he’s wrong, or he’s jeopardizing the Riddler if he’s right.

          • rhomba

            That’s why we need these damn scans, a lot rides on this.

          • Pharap

            How does he contradict the Riddler?

  • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

    • PumpkinBomb

      I only hope alolan muk doesnt get worse than this

      • Vlad

        Agreed. They should’ve really made it either a sand/Rock monster or a lava monster. This dark/poison Grimer is just lazy and uninspired tbh

    • zess

      I was thinking the same thing. Lol

  • ShadowShinobi364

    New info came out that Type: Null’s evolution will have the ability ‘AR System’ that lets it change its type depending on the item it holds.

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Thats literally the same as the Arceus plates

      • ShadowShinobi364

        I think for Type: Null, it’ll be more unique…

  • AlolanSandschrew

    Still nothing new leaked 🙁

    • EarthenWarrior

      Bastards
      And I was looking forward to see what Jangmo-o evolved into to see if it made the cut

      • AlolanSandschrew

        Same here…

  • PumpkinBomb

    I’m pretty sure this dick head will post the rest of the photos tomorrow, I hope something bad happens to him/her

  • Alexander0903

    If Jangmo-o evolution is actually dragon/fighting I will cry tears of joy

    • EarthenWarrior

      Just remember
      x4 Fairy Weakness

      • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

        Rowlet 4x Ice and people still love it

        • EarthenWarrior

          It will be Ice Shard bait

        • Pharap

          That’s different, the other options are less pleasing.

          • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

            ice is one of the weakest types tho sadly

          • EarthenWarrior

            Not when used right

          • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

            that is true. wait is Rhyperior weak to ice too but then also strong

          • Pharap

            I meant the choice is Rowlett, Litten or Popplio and of those Rowlett is the best looking. Plus people almost always go for design over typing when it comes to starters.

            And yeah, Ice is both weak and rare, so as long as it’s backed up with a fire partner, it’ll be fine.

          • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

            MY BOI LITTEN

          • EarthenWarrior

          Don’t forget grass.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Douche,

      • Alexander0903

        Don’t care. I have wanted this typing since I was 10

    • If it’s bipedal, I will tear apart Sugimori’s limbs.

      • Alexander0903

        If it wasn’t for the swords of justice I would say it has to be bipedal for its type. But the swords of justice exist so I guess it doesn’t have to be bipedal

  • UnburdenedLegume

    “Hmm, according to the same person, the full evo chain for Jangmo-o is in the magazine. Both middle and final evolutions. Interesting.”

    • Where are you getting this? Where? *rushes up to you*

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Joe Merrick

        • Ah, just saw it come up on my feed. Thanks. Haha.

        • Pharap

          That confirms it, this is a publicity stunt by Joe.

          • If this is, I will NEVER trust Joe again.

          • Wes

            Joe has given us wrong info before. He’s human and susceptible to falling for hoaxes just like the rest of us.

          • Pharap

            Doesn’t mean he’s not holding off telling us so he gets more attention.

          • Wes

            True, but it doesn’t mean he is either. We (the Pokemon community) gave Joe his power in the first place, so ultimately it’s our own fault if we get butt-hurt.

          • Pharap

            I never gave him his power.
            I’ve always flocked to Bulbapedia for pokemon info.

          • Wes

            Hence, why I said the community in general and not you specifically.

          • Pharap

            I’m technically part of the pokemon community.

          • He’s just not the type of person to do that. I mean, his site already has enough publicity as it is. Why want more by withholding information?

          • Pharap

            Why does Kim Kardashian want more fame and money?
            Enough is never enough.

            The more people viewing and refreshing the website, the more money the site gets.

          • Just one problem. He doesn’t do it for money. He does it cause he loves it. I’m done arguing over a lost cause. I’m sorry.

          • Pharap

            Enough is never enough.
            Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            He says his source doesnt want to show the other pages 🤔

          • Pharap

            Haha, yes, his ‘source’ doesn’t want to.
            Nothing to do with him wanting to draw out the attention 😀

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Didnt think Serebii needs publicity. Most popular website in the community

          • Pharap

            Yes, but if he can get people to keep reloading the site, every reload is another set of adverts, meaning more income for the site.

          • zess

            I was thinking the same thing

          • zess

            I mean he always gets the leaks first and now his “friend ” doesn’t want to release the other pages?

          • UnburdenedLegume

            He doesnt get them first but he knows people who can authenticate them

          • rhomba

            Needs to reassess who he’s friends with.

          • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

            he needs those followers

          • zess

            Just like grimer needed those teeth….😒

    • PumpkinBomb

      SOMEONE TELL THIS MOTHERFUCKER TO FUCKING UPLOAD THE PHOTOS ! GOD DAMMIT

      • Ultron

        He’s trying to be a cheeky lil’ bitch. I believe they said they’re not going to upload any more scans.

    • zess

      So why don’t they release the scans? In order to believe anything most people need evidence of the thing in question existence of solid evidence of it at the very least.

  • BeachBlastoise

    Where is Alolan Persian

  • EarthenWarrior

    Alright prediction time
    I just had a idea for Jangmo-o’s evo
    It stands up on two legs and on its arms are two large golden grey scales protruding out its forearms, these scales are its entire life and they use them as either trusty twin sabers or dual wielding shields, a long scaled tail and a crown of scales on its head like a coif They pride themselves to master both offensively and defensively

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Joe replied to my tweet: “I am fairly certain that these aren’t fake”

    • Ultron

      *o* you’re famous now

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Lol he actually tweeted to me directly a couple of times. Its nothing special

        • Ultron

          I’m still trying to get JK Rowling to respond to me :/

    • Pharap

      Once upon a time, people were fairly certain that the earth was flat.

      A few months ago, most people were fairly certain the UK wouldn’t vote to leave the EU.

      A few weeks ago I was fairly certain they couldn’t make Raticate look worse.

      The world continues to surprise.

  • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

    poison/dark actually is one of my favorite type combos since one of my favorite mons is that type. Drapion. I might use Grimer line now

  • Chaos

    Interesting. I like Dark/Poison Grimer and hopefully Muk.

    If Jangmo-o is a three evolution line and isn’t stupidly difficult to obtain I’m using it in my playthrough. Please don’t be like Volcarona

    • Ultron

      It can be like Volcarona in B2W2 :3

      • Chaos

        Volcarona should never happen again. I love the Pokemon, but it was absolutely horrendous to obtain one

        • Ultron

          Even if it was in the post game, it was still easier to obtain than hydreigon. And they at least gave you a larvesta egg

          • Chaos

            I don’t mind legendaries being obtained post game. But normal Pokemon shouldn’t be available only post game
            And also lvl 59 evolution is equally as horrendous. I dislike Dragonair and Pupitar for evolving so late as well, but I can forgive them cos they are at least Pseudo legendaries.

          • rhomba

            Thats what got to me with BW. So many pokemon evolved late and so I had no motivation using them for the main story.

          • Chaos

            Especially when the base Pokemon are pitifully weak. Looking at Larvesta.

          • rhomba

            I gave up leveling larvesta. I also got frustrated trying to train pawniard.

          • Pharap

            At least Dragonair only takes until 55.
            Hydreigon takes until level 64.

          • Chaos

            Yeh but like I said they are pseudos and and 3 stage lines so I can forgive them somewhat .

            What I can’t forgive is how weak the middle stages are however. It’s a grind getting them up to the required level.

          • Pharap

            I can forgive 55, I cannot forgive 64.
            Until 64, 55 had been the limit.

            And Volcarona is a Pseudo-legendary, despite not being a Dragon.

            At any rate, G5 suffered from high-level syndrome. Drilbur lvl 31, Yamask lvl 34, Scrafty lvl 39

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Volcarona’s base stat total is 550, so its not a pseudo

          • UnburdenedLegume

            These are all the pseudos
            Dragonite
            Tyranitar
            Salamence
            Metagross
            Garchomp
            Hydreigon
            Goodra

          • Chaos

            I disagree that Volcarona is a Pseudo Legendary. It doesn’t fit any of the. Criteria other than a late final evolutions
            No 600 BST (only 550)
            No three stage evolution line.

            Pseudo Legends are Dragonite, Tyranitar, Metagross, Salamence, Garchomp, Hydreigon and Goodra

          • Pharap

            Who even makes these rules?
            I think gamefreak is using a different set to everyone else.

            They gave Volcarona it’s own palace.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Pseudo-legendaries have to meet a few criteria

            1; Three-stage evolutionary line
            2: 1,250,000 exp at level 100
            3: BST of 600

          • Pharap

            I said who makes the rules, not what the rules are.

  • From Joe’s site: “Jangmo-o’s evolution is known in Japan as Jarango and Jarango then evoles into Jararango. Once again, this remains unconfirmed until images surface”

    What the fuck kind of names are those? Lol.

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      JARARARARARARARAGO_O is the final

    • Chaos

      Jararango is beast

    • PumpkinBomb

      should have been jararango-o-o-oh

    • Pharap

      So, we can expect Jangmo-o-o to be the evolution?
      Or Jangmo-omo-o

    • PumpkinBomb

      its like Giaro Gigiaro Gigigiaro, (Klinklangs line in japanese)

      • Ah, I kinda see the theme here now.

      • Pharap

        Actually Giaru, Gigiaru and Gigiaru, but the u is silent, so it’s actually the equivalent of Gear, Gigear and Gigigear.

    • Wes

      I thought Jangmo-o was supposed to be a combination of ‘young’ and ‘mo’o’. Why would it keep the ‘young’ part?

  • richie_btvs

    I liked alolan grimmer… kinda goofy haha
    I always liked muk, so i hope for a cool design!
    About the rest of the leak… well we had times where it came over 2/3 nights!
    Im hoping for it tonight!
    Maybe the leak boss arrived and he didnt got time to take/upload pictures!
    Im ok in waiting…
    but i agree its kinda shady just to post the information….
    Abiut type null… ar lalala? Well maybe it has to do with the new ar feature!
    The alleged type null evo…. i never thougt it being a 1 stage pokemon….
    If portgon has 2 evos… why not taipy(digimon homage :] )….
    I dont want the dragon to be part fighting… just because i think we have a lot of fighting already… but the 4x to fairy will be cool!

    • Nintendo Ninjas have died off since Iwata died. We have had more leaks with Sun and Moon then X and Y and the Titanic combined.

      • richie_btvs

        That is true! This monthly(almost every other week) release of information its amazing….

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      if u think about it. Alolan Grimer really has one weakness. Ground.

      • richie_btvs

        I like that ideia… i like poison types 🙂

        • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

          since it has poison dark is neutral to fighting and can take down fairy

  • Margaery_de_Ultratumba

    Ugh, another Alolan Dark pokemon? Grimmer/ Muk as Dark pokemon make sense. I was waiting for some bold Alolan addition never seen before. I don’t know, maybe a Water/Fairy Staryu and Starmie, a Grass/Dark Victreebel, based on a carnivore plant, a Psychic/Poison Hypno, a Fairy/Ice Dewgong or a Bug/Psychic Buterfree.

    • rhomba

      I would love for dewgong to have a tropical design, especially as dugongs are found in warmer water.

      • Margaery_de_Ultratumba

        I love dewgong and I think it has been very mistreated throu generations, specially since the aparition of Walrein, which can do better most of the things dewgong did. I think it needs an improvement to become different from the rest of water pokemon.

        • rhomba

          It definitely needs some treatment. It’s always been one of favourites so I really hope it gets an Alolan form.

          • Margaery_de_Ultratumba

            I know. But it seems unlikely, basically because of Popplio evolution line. If there’s a seal/dugong line, I do not think GF will introduce another similar line in Alola.

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      GIVE ME MY ALOLAN DEWGONG GAMEFREAK

      • Margaery_de_Ultratumba

        Totally.

        • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

          seel is one of my favorite pokemon so like seeing its evo or itself get alolan i will cry

          • Margaery_de_Ultratumba

            I’ll cry if they give an Alolan Dewgong. And if they don’t. XD.

      • LoquaciousUxie

        What would that entail? Maybe a mossy water/grass, or a water fairy or something?

        • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

          i said water/rock or water/steel wheres it horn becomes more of a way to break through rocks in the rocky sea of alola.

  • Fairy

    Part of me is wondering if this ‘Leaker’ is actually falsifying info after proving himself with a legit piece of info. I mean he has no scans to back any of his claims up beyond Alolan Grimer.

    • richie_btvs

      The dragon fighting part leds me to believe in that! Cause since day one i see people saying jangmoo saying its evo will be fighting…

      • Ben Rhodes

        From day one I’ve seen more people saying Steel

  • Chaos

    Interesting we don’t have any Dark or Ice type Gen 7 Pokemon.

    But we have 4 Ice Type Alolans and now 4 Dark Type Alolans.

  • Wes

    Have any pseudo evolutions ever been revealed prior to release?

    • Fairy

      Nope, but we did get Axew and Haxorus before release.

      • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

        thats not a pseudo

      • UnburdenedLegume

        The Axew line are not pseudo-legendary

        • Fairy

          Hence why I said ‘no, but we did get those two’

          As in we’ve had pseudo looking three stage Dragons revealed before.

    • rhomba

      I’m not much help since I’ve only been following leaks properly since BW and from what I remember was that both gen 5 and 6 pseudos weren’t leaked.

  • Ironhide
  • Ben Rhodes

    Ok Excuse me for commenting again but I have ideas for the types of the ones I think are the only possible ones now:
    Ekans and Arbok – Poison/Water (I know this ones a common idea but yeah)
    Nidoran♂, Nidorino – Psychic
    Nidoking – Psychic/Ground
    Nidoran♀, Nidorina – Dark
    Nidoqueen – Dark/Ground
    Venonat and Venomoth – Bug/Psychic
    Diglett and Dugtrio – Ground/Fire
    Geodude, Graveller, Golem – Ice/Rock
    Ponyta – Stays the same
    Rapidash – Fire/Fairy
    Doduo and Dotrio – Normal/Ghost (This ones just cause I think a Dotrio with no necks looks cool)
    Koffing and Wheezing – Rock/Fire

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      no dewgong 🙁

      • Ben Rhodes

        Yeah cause we’ve seen Dewgong in gameplay already. I haven’t listed the ones we’ve seen, that have megas, are legendary, or evolve into a none gen 1 pokemon. I’m keeping a list of ones we’ve seen in gameplay, Though I have now realised I might have Missed Seel Dewgong, I probably had a reason why I didn’t include it but I haven’t the foggiest reason what it was…

        • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

          where have we seen dewgong?

          • Ben Rhodes

            That’s what I’m trying to figure out now, I have no idea why I haven’t included it. https://www.facebook.com/EvilCilan/posts/1196235147107797
            This is my list of all we’ve seen it isn’t on it. Maybe I forgot it exists?
            Krabby and Kingler aren’t there either actually.
            Maybe I thought Water types wouldn’t need to change much?

          • Ben Rhodes

            After doing a bit of backtracking, I updated my comment, though gave reasons as to why

    • Pharap

      And what are the justifications for these?
      What evironmental factors caused these pokemon to change into these forms?

      • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

        they all ate fluffy pancakes

      • Ben Rhodes

        I dunno I just thought of type ideas, I didn’t think of how and why, what enviromental reason does Raichu have?

        • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

          it got sat on by snorlax and decided to become mentallly connected with psychic powers so it wont happen again

        • Pharap

          Raichu is the only exception so far and me and others (e.g. @BigGuyI:disqus) are very annoyed about that.

          • Ben Rhodes

            Exactly, maybe you can come up with ideas.

          • Pharap

            (Tbh I suspect Raichu is supposed to be a nod to that one episode over a decade ago featuring a surfing Pikachu with supposedly psychic powers.)

            The Geodude line can be justified by living in icy climates.

            Koffing and Wheezing could be justified the same way a water Grimer would, that they weren’t always poison and simply became tainted with polution after being traded to Kanto.

            Ekans and Arbok could have had to learn to swim because they moved to a swamp.

            The rest I can’t really justify, but a flying Rapidash pegasus would be a good idea. I would rather fire/flying though because it makes more sense, otherwise you’d have to give it levitate and that would be kind of lame. Unless you got rid of the fire and made it a flying/fairy, made ponyta fairy and say it moved to a forest with heavy fairy influence. But again, that’s a bit of a push and fire/flying would be easier to justify by saying it grew wings to cross the ocean and climb mountains to escape predators and find new food sources.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Alolan Rapidash should be Fire/Flying. There is nothing else that would justify it.

          • Ben Rhodes

            Several pokemon have the ability to fly but aren’t flying types

          • Pharap

            Yes, but pretty much all ones that have wings and can fly are either flying or dragon.

          • Ben Rhodes

            That is true, though it’s always a possibilty, like how Lurantis isn’t a Bug despite it being a Mantis, though that would have made it more Leavanny like

          • Fairy

            TBF Fomantis appears to be a reverse orchid mantis (plant pretending to be a mantis, hence its name, ‘Fo’ (Faux) + Mantis

          • Ben Rhodes

            That’s fair then

          • Pharap

            Fairy explained it so I didn’t have to.
            I thought everybody was already aware of that joke. (Maybe just the people who know what an orchid mantis is because they have played animal crossing.)

        • zess

          I took it as the they still don’t know the environmental reason that causes Alolan Raichu. So as people have always done when presented with the unexplainable, they merely make up a reason however nonsensical it maybe until proven otherwise.

        • zess

          Maybe with no natural predators it allows Raichu to retain more muscle and fat which allows it to store more electricity that increased electrical charge stimulates it’s mind with allows the emergence of psychic powers.

          • Ben Rhodes

            Maybe it has a Natural Predator though. As a “Mouse Pokemon” and sharing the same environment, Yungoose/Gumshoos would probably hunt that too, even if it’s beef is with Rattata/Raticate

          • Pharap

            I’d be more inclined to believe it developed psychic abilities on its own (or by copying other psychic pokemon) to predict the coming of large waves for it to ride.

            But then I still don’t like the idea of it using its own tail to surf 😛 I wanted it to fell trees and carve its own.

          • Fairy

            Well, to drastically over simplify, brain activity involves electricity or some thing or other so what if Alolan Raichu’s electricity gave it the brain power to have Psychic powers?

            Still doesn’t explain why itd adapt tho -_-

          • Pharap

            By that logic all electric types should be able to become part psychic.

          • Fairy

            True, true, although they could be missing a stimuli that would cause the change.

            Although it would explain how Electivire randomly learns Psychic by TM

          • Pharap

            All electric pokemon having the potential to be psychic would be too over the top. Besides, brains aren’t just electricity, they also require chemical reactions to communicate between axon terminals and dendrites via neurotransmitters.

            There are loads of pokemon that learn Psychic that aren’t psychic. Staryu, Gorebys, Wormadam, Mothim.
            They seem to have odd rules in regards to what pokemon they give which moves.

      • Poketard101

        Who cares? 🙁 I’m tired of all these people crapping on other peoples ideas because of something stupid like justifications, and logic (Something Pokemons never really had). If they want and like the idea’s that they came up with, that’s there business, and they shouldn’t have to come up with an excuse as to why it would work. I know I’m tired of people telling me my ideas are no good, or wouldn’t work just because they don’t like them. So let them have their little “unjustified” type and design idea changes. It’s fun to read about, without the long winded explanations, as to why said Pokemon would receive the new typings/forms. 🙂

    • LoquaciousUxie

      I would love to see an ice type geodude, but I would gobble up whatever they give us so…

    • Fairy

      Tbh I’d prefer a Pegasus – > Horned Pegasus for Ponyta, mostly because we need more pure Flying and primary flying Pokémon.

      • Ben Rhodes

        Yeah that’s how I imagined a Fire/Fairy Rapidash

  • Golden_Monferno

    Despite that we got a odd looking Grimer….

    WE GOT A DRAGON/FIGHTING TYPE FINALLY!!!! GAMEFREAK THANK YOU SO MUCH I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS DAY :’D

    • Pharap

      Unconfirmed.

      • Golden_Monferno

        I know it’s uncormfirmed, but it seems very likely.

        • Pharap

          Just don’t your hopes up until it is completely confirmed or you might end up being disappointed.

          • Golden_Monferno

            Alright.. It’s just its my favorite Type-Combo and I really want it to happen

      • Fairy

        But still from a somewhat trustworthy source.

  • SpectralSeraph

    JANGMO-O YESSSSSS!!!
    GAMEFREAK DOES NOT DISSAPOINT!!!

    • Pharap

      Unconfirmed.

      • SpectralSeraph

        I’m going to literally cry if this turns out fake..

  • Spetsnaz

    Luckily my boss opened a new store in a different town, so I have an hour commute to wait for the other scans to leak

  • TigerMasku

    Forget all alolas and types what I am dying to really see and know about is the updated move powers/accuracy and if they will make a base stat boost like X and Y because I want a stronger Primeape and Nidoking

  • Overall, this issue has the potential to be very dissapointing. Depending on the design of those unconfirmed potential Jangmo-o Evolutions and the unconfirmed Type: Null’s potential evolution. Which I didn’t really care for Type: Null’s design to begin with. And Alolan Grimer in general just turns me off. It just looks like a Grimer with rotten teeth and butter over it’s mouth.

    • Chaos

      Well in my opinion this issue has the potential to be brilliant. Jangmo-o is a Pokemon I want to use and good evolutions for it would be amazing.
      I also like Alolan Grimer (and hopefully Muk).
      Information of Type:Null would also be interesting.

      • I just hope and pray that Jangmo-o’s evolutions, if they are true, turn out to be good. I just don’t like Grimer’s Alolan form. And Type: Null is okay, it’s lore is interesting, but I just don’t really care for its design.

        • BeachBlastoise

          Grimer’s alolan form is meh to me

        • Pharap

          Complete agrement.

    • joker901

      Imo it’s better if the changement is not that huge as Ninetales. I mean evolution changement is a really slow process and it’s almost never that drastic.

    • Epic Ninfia

      THEN DON’T USE ALOLAN GRIMER IS IT THAT HARD SHIT. THERES NO POINT IN WHINING LIKE AN ENTITLED CHILD WHEN U CAN JUST IGNORE IT

  • Ironhide

    Type Null Evolution Revealed……………….!!!!!!!!!!!! its real!! no joke

    https://gosipselebrititerbaru.files.wordpress.com/2008/10/bcl-11.gif

  • joker901

    Say what you want about its design but poison/dark is really a good combo, only weak to ground and immune to psychic. This will make Muk a great bulky sp. def. pokemon to fear

    • SpectralSeraph

      Exactly! Been waiting for a mon like this forever!

  • TigerMasku

    I hope fairy type gets nerfed with an immunity ability or something

    • UnburdenedLegume

      It definitely needs another weakness. Bug?

      • Fairy

        Bug needs way more love :<

        • UnburdenedLegume

          YES

        • AlolanSandschrew

          Yes bug always seems to be a weak type

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Scolipede tho <3

          • Fairy

            Gen V for bugs in general TBH

          • AlolanSandschrew

            Dont like that one xd

          • AlolanSandschrew

            Volcarona though

          • Fairy

            If not another type it’s super effective on they should at least give it some stronger, more consistent moves seeing as the only ones you’ll really see are Megahorn, X-Scissor and Bug Buzz

    • Fairy

      I’d say take away their Bug resistance and give Grass a resistance to Fairy tbh

      • Tev-Da-Trainer

        Fairy types resisting Bug types is overkill. I really hope they remove it but that’s wishful thinking.

        • UnburdenedLegume

          Why are they immune to Bug anyway?

          • EarthenWarrior

            y’all dense, Fairies are often nature dwellers and would naturally commune with bugs or at least know how to defend themselves

          • UnburdenedLegume

            YOU ARE ALL KNOWING. THE ORACLE OF PJ

          • EarthenWarrior

            Uh yeah

          • Kali Black-Mamba Russaw

            then by that strain of “logic”: wouldn’t they resist the “elements” all together? There are water, forest, and fire fairies in lore too…

          • Tev-Da-Trainer

            I dunno tbh lol.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Fairy needs to be weak to fire

        • Tev-Da-Trainer

          I agree with this 100%.

        • Fairy

          From a flavour stand point yeah but tbh I feel like Fire doesn’t really need a buff.

          Now Ice or Bug, that’s a whole different story. Either give Ice resistances or go all out with making it the best offensive type.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I’m ignoring the bug and ice remarks because they’re fine the way they are

          • Fairy

            Saying Bug and Ice are fine is like saying you like Fairy Types.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Nope, because I’m the only one who actually knows how resistances work and they all check out

          • Fairy

            Literally throw anything at an Ice Type if you survive its attack and it’ll die.

            Bug could be sound but there insistent on giving them bad moves

            Maybe if you used your ego as leverage you could see the whole problem :p

          • EarthenWarrior

            No duh it’s a goddamned Glass Cannon type, it’s ice it’s brittle and weak unless there’s a large amount of it
            And bug has plenty of decent moves, X-Scissor, Bug Buzz are powerful with stab they’re fine

            This has nothing to do with my ego I actually see the types for what they are and how they work, and I understand why X is super effective against Y and what they can resist and break from it’s all logic and science

          • BeachBlastoise

            Defensive wise yes Ice Types but Offensive wise they’re good

          • Fairy

            Ice is a bad glass cannon though. They don’t make it strong enough offensively or defensively, and unrelated to its type match ups, they get bad stat distributions. A glass Cannon should be high risk high reward but Ice is either high risk meh reward or ‘I could just put this ice move on a non ice’.

            X-Scissor and Bug Buzz lack the raw power of moves like Flamethrower, Earthquake, Thunderbolt, etc.

            And the last bit was a joke, but it did kind of prove itself.

          • Ultron

            The biggest problem with most ice and bug types is that gamefreak doesn’t make enough pokemon of that typing that have good stat distributions

          • Tev-Da-Trainer

            Exacty!!

          • Kali Black-Mamba Russaw

            you’re right. and you actually know how this game and type balances should work. Bug Ice Grass and Fairy all need help to some degree.

            I applaud you <3

          • Tev-Da-Trainer

            Ice types don’t really need a buff as a type. We just need better Ice types with good stats and some Hail benefits. A lot of them are too slow, or defensive oriented which I don’t why and every damn Water Type can learn Ice Beam.

          • Fairy

            Can we all just agree that hail needs a hella buff ‘0’

          • EarthenWarrior

            That’s fair
            And I’ll throw in Snow Sprint which doubles speed in hail

          • Fairy

            Needs to be Alolan Sandslash’s hidden ability

            Put that flavour text to work GF /’-‘/

          • Ultron

            Call it snow shoes

          • Tev-Da-Trainer

            Yes please! All Ice types get 50% increase in defence, just like how Rock types get a 50% special defence boost in Sandstorm.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Water is a state of ice everyone know all water elementals can use ice to some degree

          • Ultron

            Give us an ice pseudo pokemon

          • Kali Black-Mamba Russaw

            bug needs help as a type. period.

          • Tev-Da-Trainer

            Not really.

          • EarthenWarrior

            You can’t buff them since they’re already logically sound

          • Tev-Da-Trainer

            Just because it’s “logically sound” doesn’t meant they don’t need a buff.

          • EarthenWarrior

            They could be buffed but they ain’t

        • Kali Black-Mamba Russaw

          negative

    • SpectralSeraph

      I honestly hope it’s weak to ghost so ghost will stand out a bit more from dark

      • Ultron

        Ghost just kinda seems like darks less popular cousin. It could use a fairy immunity or something

        • Fairy

          Tbh I’d say Fairy resistance unless they add a Fairy Nuke along the lines of Earthquake or Outrage.

          • Ultron

            That would be appreciated

          • Fairy

            Ghost is another type that needs some sort of attention tbh, but the immune to trapping part was a nice touch.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Ughhhhhhh curse my brain and all its magnificence
            Supernova
            Fairy
            120
            A two turn attack, the user gathers celestial energy from the sky and unleashes a powerful bundle of light

          • Ultron

            I feel like supernova should be a fire type attack

          • EarthenWarrior

            It has plenty to work with fairy can have this
            I did have this idea
            Cauterize
            Which is a recovery move

          • Ultron

            What type

          • Ultron

            Fire, I assume?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Yeah

          • Pharap

            Cauterising a wound only stops bleeding and cleanses, it doesn’t actually heal a person per se.

            So it could arguably cure poisoning or something, but healing is a bit of a stretch.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Yeah but ’twas but an idea

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Cauterize is an attack in The Old Republic. It inflicts a DoT burn effect.

          • Fairy

            That’s actually a really cool idea, and it accompanies Moonblast well

        • Pharap

          Don’t let Star see you saying that, they’ll go ballistic. They love ghost types.

          • Ultron

            It’s true though! 😛 ghost always seems like an afterthought compared to dark, even though it came before it

          • Pharap

            I prefer ghost to be honest, it’s just a bit less flexible design wise.
            Dark is like the opposite of Psychic and can be appended to almost anything, whereas ghost requires being a spirit (e.g. by dying, or always being a spirit).

          • Ultron

            That’s true. Ghost type can be tricky to design for..

        • Kali Black-Mamba Russaw

          i agree fairies should deal 1/2 to ghosts

    • Kali Black-Mamba Russaw

      why would fairy need to be nerfed?

      • Pharap

        Only two weaknesses, immune to dragon, strong against dark, dragon and fighting.

        • Kali Black-Mamba Russaw

          your almost describing ghosts though… two weaknesses, one immunity, strong against 2 types (instead of three..)

          to me fairies attempt to check the stronger types in this game.. and don’t deserve a nerf unless it’s removing their bug resistance… because bug needs a buff.. and so does ice and grass.

          • Pharap

            Two immunities actually, but they can’t damage one of the things they’re immune to. Ghost vs Normal is a stalemate.

            Fairy also resists more, and ghost is only a threat to two types, one of which is itself.

            Fairy is strong against three commonly used types, and is immune to one of the ones it’s strong against.

            If they made fairy weak to ghost, fairy would have 3 weaknesses and ghost would have 3 strengths, thus weakening fairy enough to be considered nerfed and strengthening ghost significantly, making it much more useful. As ghost currently stands, adding it to a team provides very little benefit because it’s only really useful for tackling two types.

          • Kali Black-Mamba Russaw

            now i will agree that fairy should be weak to and/or be resisted by Ghost.

            However as it stand most fairy types are on the weaker side and so when I think about who the game is applying these fairy benefits to I don’t agree that they should be nerfed… having said that we are very close to the new gen release and who knows what amazing fairies will be released with it. So maybe once fairies as Pokemon get stronger I will be more on board with the type getting “weaker” or “checked.

          • Pharap

            There’s quite a lot of fairies and some are quite strong.

            The new generation has already released 6 fairies, 2 of which are legendaries and 2 of which almost certainly have an evolved form.

            Plus there’s Mega Mawile, Mega Altaria, Florges, Togekiss, Xerneas, Mega Diancie, Azumarill, all reasonably strong pokemon.

          • Kali Black-Mamba Russaw

            mega mawile is banned. diance and xerneas are legends (which i don’t see as fair to begin with). Florges is ok. Mega Altaria, Togekiss, and Azumarill are among the best for sure.

            And hopefully the new fairies will be good too! 🙂

  • TheSunnyMonster6893

    Idk how I feel about Alolan Grimer. I guess I kind of wish they had gone the whole purification route that many of the false rumors said it would take. Would have been cool to see a mud or water based Grimer and Muk. Alas, I suppose it wasn’t meant to be lol Looking forward to seeing the other stuff in CoroCoro tho! I’m surprised to hear that Type Null actually evolves! i will say I do like the idea of it evolving and gaining a more natural name. Almost like it has finally become a real Pokemon in nature and now it’s “evolved” to be more natural. Finally I’m also surprised that Jangmo-o’s full line will be shown potentially. I wouldn’t have expected it to be. Maybe it’s not the pseudo like everyone thought it is.

  • The Last Kurusu

    WTF??!! Grimer looks horrid!!!

    • Epic Ninfia

      How about u just ignore it.

      • The Last Kurusu

        Get off my property *Uses spray gun* I actually like it now

  • BeachBlastoise

    I really want to what Jang’s evolution is going to look like.

    • If it’s confirmed of course, I hope that they don’t too bad. I know they are going to suffer the bipedal treatement like most Fighting types if the rumor is true. I just am getting really ticked off at this leaker. Why share Grimer then withhold the rest of the pictures? WTF is wrong with this leaker?

      • BeachBlastoise

        True if that’s case why even bother leaking it in the 1st place if you’re not going to leak the whole thing. I agree with you on Jangmo-o’s evolution design as well but I just hope it doesn’t disappoint.

  • PumpkinBomb

    🎶 what kind of a douchebag are you ? how do you do the things you do-o-o-o ? 🎶 🎶

  • Daedardus

    It’s my birthday today! It also means that four and three years ago Pokémon BW2 and XY released. Seems like a long time to me, I’m officialy getting old now!

    • BeachBlastoise

      Happy Birthday

    • Fairy

      Good birth :p

    • EarthenWarrior

      It’s mine too

      • Daedardus

        Really, cool! Happy shared birthday! I know ozymandis (another mod on here), is also October 12th.

        • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

          now 4

        • EarthenWarrior

          And later today me and the Chespin I got three years ago are gonna walk the entire Kalos region and all the way to the Pokemon league

          • Ultron

            How sentimental

      • UnburdenedLegume

        OMG EARTHEN WISE IS AGING. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE

        • EarthenWarrior

          Suck it,

      • Fairy

        Birth

      • Daedardus

        How old are you now Earthen if I’m allowed to ask?

        • EarthenWarrior

          • UnburdenedLegume

            OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG THE ORACLE HAS THE SAME AGE AS ME

          • Ultron

            You two are destined for love

          • Fairy

            Legearthern is my otp

          • EarthenWarrior

            I will murder you and sell your stuff on eBay
            Like all divorcees and murder victims

          • Fairy

            You can’t murder what doesn’t have a life

          • EarthenWarrior

            I can always try

          • Fairy

            True

          • Daedardus

            22 here

          • REKT. NL and Star thought you were older than me. HAHAHAHAHAHA

          • Shady

            Where is NL by the way.

          • He only uses the site chat now. 🙂

          • Pharap

            What are you, 31?

          • wOw. I’m 24.

          • Vsays

            I turned 23 on oct 12th as well. Haha

          • Stevosan

            Haha, not my birthday but I can join the 23 club too. C’mon Earthen, we’ve got maybe 65 years ahead, we’re not over the hill yet. 😛

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      Can we throw a party

    • It’s my Birthday today too! 😮 Wow! Small world!

      • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

        wow 3 birthdays

    • Ultron

      Happy birthday!

    • Golden_Monferno

      Man, already 3 years since XY huh? I remember getting my X on that day and I choose Froakie. Sigh, good times…

      • Pharap

        I also chose Froakie and regretted it a few days later.

        • Golden_Monferno

          How come? I mean, while Froakie doesn’t learn another good water type move besides Water Pulse until later on, it was pretty good Pokemon and it grew on me

          • Pharap

            One word: Greninja.

            I wish I’d chosen Fennekin.

          • Golden_Monferno

            Well despite that tongue scarf it’s still very useful in battle, even without Protean

          • Vlad

            Can’t get over tongue scarf. I would at least respect it if it came in and out as Apposed to being permanately wrapped around its face

      • The Last Kurusu

        I chose Chespin and my brother gets his DS today and got my old X version and said he’s choosing Froakie

        • Golden_Monferno

          What a coincidence lol

    • The Last Kurusu

      Yay! Happy Birthday! I think it’s Earthens birthday too!

  • Rockcrawdaunt

    I really have a feeling this is fake. Not cuz I don’t like it- there’s no in game pictures and all of the pictures are reused and seem to have nothing to do with each other. Totems, trials and meowth? What?

    • It is getting very suspicious to me. Given it’s been over nearly 4 hours since the first leak and the “leaker” continues to reveal tidbits with NO pictures. Why have the magazine, post Grimer’s pic, then not reveal the rest of the info. What the fuck?

      • SpectralSeraph

        Well, Pyukumuku was revealed a day later after the Corocoro it was in

        • Oh yeah, that’s true. I just hope we don’t have to wait that long. I’m dying to see if the Jangmo-o evolutions are real.

      • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

        the leaker said he aint posting no more pics

        • Why? He posted Grimer. Why not the rest? I don’t get it. Is he afraid the Nintendo Ninjas may take them down for Copyright?

          • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

            that could be it or he is just stubborn

          • Probably the latter.

          • Ultron

            He’s a dick, idk

      • This isn’t unheard of though. It happens a lot.

        • I’m really sad because I wanted to see the potential Jangmo-o evolutions. How many times as this happened and everything said leakers said became fact eventually?

    • From what I can tell of the two pictures on the bottom left, it’s stuff we’ve seen already.

      • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

        actually no the jungle we’ve seen now has a npc

  • Hmm, as awesome as a potential dragon/fighting type sounds (which I really should have anticipated…) I was really riding on it being a more defensive based dragon/steel type to balance my projected team. If it’s true, then I hope I can still make it work.

  • Hayley Waalen

    Where’s the images for Jangmo-o’s evos?

    • Fairy

      The same place as Cutiefly’s evo :p

  • Pharap

    Can we just declare them fake now?

    Frankly I’ve lost interest and I’m thinking of leaving.

    • The Last Kurusu

      The whole site or this article?

    • BeachBlastoise

      Nope since this news is coming out Corocoro then it’s true and we’re getting news on Friday

      • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

        unless someone else gets corocoro

        • BeachBlastoise

          If I had the magazine I would leak the whole thing

        • Which is bound to happen soon. Then we can verify this or put it to bed.

    • Then just leave.

  • Ben Rhodes

    Heres a Pokemon idea: Lullabye – Dark/Fairy.
    It sneaks into the Bedrooms of children who aren’t yet asleep, and feeds on their souls after singing them to sleep.

    I mean, a Dark/Fairy would be pretty cool, most Fairy types we have don’t really have a sinister feel to them, and there are many Fairies that are evil in folklore.

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      i want a dark/Fairy imp

      • EarthenWarrior

        I still have my Mythical Dark/Fairy
        Insatyr
        The Sinister Pkm
        A tall pinkish brownish bipedal Pokemon, long black backwards facing horns, a wicked grin, long claws and hooves

        They sense mischief and discord with their horns, they try to cause chaos wherever they go, at night it retreats to moonless forests

        • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

          thats what i want in a dark/fairy

        • UnburdenedLegume

          Unreal

    • Golden_Monferno

      Seems a little like a Ghost Type, but I’m on board with this idea and a Dark/Fairy type

    • The Last Kurusu

      That’s pretty dark even for a Pokémon

      • Ben Rhodes

        Well, Hypno kidnaps children, Phantump are the souls of dead children, Yamask is a dead person, cofagrigus eats people it lures in, Shedinja steals the souls of people who look into it’s back, theres many Dark Pokemon

        • The Last Kurusu

          But sings you to sleep then devours your soul? It’s murdering innocent kids in their beds?

    • Pharap

      I designed a Dark/Fairy pokemon once, but it didn’t turn out that well.

  • Who heard that the leaker is not posting anymore pictures? Where’s the source?

  • Fairy

    Out of curiousity, what’s everyone’s ‘least expected’ favourite Pokémon? Like, a Pokémon that you think nobody else would be able to guess until you told them?

    Mines is definitely either Steelix or Dragalge.

    • Ultron

      Magnezone or maybe tentacruel? I like them both a lot. Not sure if they’re unexpected.

      • Fairy

        I’d say that I feel Tentacool is unexpected from you, but I haven’t been here that frequently or that long so I’m not sure

        But Tenta is heavily underrated.

        • Ultron

          Also honchkrow but I think I’ve talked about it so probably not unexpected

    • Golden_Monferno

      Probably Venusaur or Pyukumuku, I thought they were cool at first but they grew on me. Venusaur grew on me because of my current FireRed run

  • The Queen of Peace

    LEAK PLEASE!!!

  • Phantom S

    The helmet of Type Null kind of looks like the thing on the belly of Arceus. Now we know he changes it type. What if Type Null is a result of humans trying to recreate a God?

    • Ultron

      You might be a little late to that party..

      • Phantom S

        Oh, sorry. But can I still dance?

        • Ultron

          Sure, sure

  • DaiShogunNB

    what’s taking them so long to reveal the rest of the info?!

    • Ultron

      Reportedly they don’t want to reveal the rest

      • Where did you get that from?

        • Ultron

          Responders to serebii’s twitter posts about this leak

      • DaiShogunNB

        so the leakers are being idiots? >.<

        • Fairy

          TBF what they’re doing is illegal ^^;

          • Ultron

            Is it though? It’s just a magazine

          • Fairy

            Yeah, but seeing as a lot of them probably get leaks due to their careers it’s probably less fear of a criminal record and more of the threat of a loss of a job/demotion/losing favour with the boss and colleagues/etc.

          • PercyEspeon

            And, to them, that’s just as bad as criminal charges

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            It is. Japan relatively recently issued a law that makes leaking or distributing this kind of media before it’s actual release date illegal. It’s dumb, but also makes sense as there needs to be some way to keep this from happening. (not that it really does lol)

          • The Last Kurusu

            We all enjoy it so who cares!

        • TheSunnyMonster6893

          That seems a bit harsh……They don’t HAVE to do anything. We’re lucky they leaked Grimer. they didn’t have to leak that page at all.

          • Pharap

            One might as well be hanged for a sheep as a lamb

      • The Last Kurusu

        I hope a few evos (Cutiefly, Pikipek, Bounsweet, And Maybe Drampa) still reveal

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      Sounds like the leaker is nervous about leaking. Since it’s illegal I don’t blame them. At least they got Alolan Grimer out I suppose lol

  • BeachBlastoise

    Who’s everyone’s favorite Alolan form?

    • The Last Kurusu

      Sandslash or now Grimer it grew on me already

    • Pharap

      Oddly enough Exeggutor.
      Or maybe Meowth, but it depends how Persian turns out.

      • BeachBlastoise

        Still waiting for Alolan Persian

    • Tev-Da-Trainer

      Vulpix and Ninetails!

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Ninetales, Raichu and Marowak

    • Ultron

      Vulpix and ninetails. The rest are meh to bad

    • SomeGuy

      Raichu. Looks like a bread loaf. Eats pancake. Electric/Psychic. Adorable as heck.

    • Ninetales. Second runner up is Raticate.

      • BeachBlastoise

        Raticate caught me by surprised

        • I’ve loved Raticate’s design since day one. And am glad that it has an Alolan form to bring it back into the limelight.

      • AlolanSandschrew

        Rati is horrible

      • Ultron

        I think alolan raticate is actually kind of cute

    • AlolanSandschrew

      Sandshrew!!

    • PercyEspeon

      Vulpix line and Meowth

    • BeachBlastoise

      So far my favorite Alolan forms is Sandshrew, Sandslash, and Marowak. I starting to warm up to Vuplix, Ninetales, maybe Meowth and Raichu.

    • Golden_Monferno

      Like them all, especially Raichu and Ninetales. I also really like Sandslash’s design, but that typing is going to be really bad

    • Raichu and only because I drew it and it’s possibly associated with Hau

    • Sunny

      Grimer.

    • zebstriker

      Ninetales, Sandslash and Marowak

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      Marowak

    • Alyssa Dunn

      i think i like the grimer and meowth

    • Daniel

      The one you haven’t seen.

  • Fairy

    So I just lost my streak in the Battle Maison because my Leaf Storm missed the Rhydon and it Stone Edged me to death

    I blame Earthen (ง’̀-‘́)ง

    • The Last Kurusu

      It’s his Birthday though (last I remember at least)

    • Tev-Da-Trainer

      Battle Maison hax is so damn annoying.

  • Pharap

    What’s everyone’s least favourite Alolan form?

    • Grimer at the moment.

      • Tev-Da-Trainer

        Grimer didn’t even need an Alolan form tbh.

        • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

          Raichu didn’t need one

          • UnburdenedLegume

            None of them actually needed one imo. GF being too lazy to come up with more Alola native so they redesign old ones

          • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

            I like the idea of varaints to regions but it shouldn’t be just gen 1 in alola. because gen 8 will come will it be all gens have a chance then?

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Gen 8 will have ”Kanto forms” lol

          • Pharap

            ; n ;

          • Tev-Da-Trainer

            True, but I do like the idea of Alolan Formes. It’s great way to reinvent old Pokemon.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Raichu is bae <3

    • The Last Kurusu

      None

    • AlolanSandschrew

      Meowth

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      Yeah….I’d have to go with Grimer….Maybe I’ll like Muk, but right now Grimer isn’t doing it for me….which is a shame as normal Grimer doesn’t bother me all that much.

    • AlolanSandschrew

      & raticate

    • Ultron

      I hate raichu and marowak.

    • Wes

      Meowth.

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Raticate

    • PercyEspeon

      Raticate

    • zebstriker

      Raichu

    • Raticate

    • Sunny

      Raticate

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      Least favorite will have to be Raichu. just looks odd to me

      • Ultron

        Its concept makes so little sense it astounds me

        • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

          thats probably what gamefreak wanted

          • Ultron

            It ruined the alola forms, imo. Marowak also

          • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

            🙁 marowak made sense in a way

          • Ultron

            I can roll with fire typing for sure. Ghost I just cannot

          • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

            ghost was possibly a homage to the ghost marowak from R/B/G/Y

          • Ultron

            Yeah and it’s a nice homage, but isnt logical

          • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

            idk reading in a bit more the ghost type is more like a homage then anything else logical

          • Pharap

            I don’t like all the Kanto homages they stuff in.

            It’s one thing to take an old pokemon and refurbish it, that makes sense, but to give it a power just for the sake of Nostalgia is silly.

          • Pharap

            People are still going on about that?
            I’d retconned that by G4

          • Pharap

            Total agreement.
            I was praying for Fire/Ground.

    • Tev-Da-Trainer

      I don’t like that surf boarding Raichu.

    • Alyssa Dunn

      i think the marowak looks unoriginal in a way

  • Yu Narukami

    Of all the Gen 1 Pokemon to give Alolan forms to, you give it to one not even a Genwunner would defend!

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      watch its reasoning be the most logical out of the alolan forms

  • Rafael Vilela

    I’m imagining the conversation months ago in the Pokémon Sun/Moon development office:

    – Alright guys, so we’re set to have the Alolan Forms! Image the old Pokémon moving to the bright, sunny, tropical paradise islands of Alola and adapting to this habitat to become…
    – Hey, how abou-
    – Yes, Ice type! Great idea!
    – Well, actually, I was thinking abou-
    – Wow, yeah, great, even better, dark type!
    – … ok boss, whatever you say…

    • Pharap
      • Review Reviewer

        If they were all water it would just be boring…

        • Pharap

          Well they’re begining to be mostly dark, and that’s pretty boring too.

          And I never said all Water.
          They haven’t had a single Water alolan yet.

          • Review Reviewer

            Hey, at least there’s actual water type pokemon, better than a water-less gen.

          • SomeGuy

            Water is the best presented type. I’m cool with no Alola water Pokes

          • Epic Ninfia

            Mostly. Since when is 3. Mostly

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      Normal? because Gumshoos in on the bottom

        I’m stupid, so sorry for this but, whats Verdant Cave

      • PikaThePandaMan

        OH nvm i see… thanks for that verdant cave is the normal island trial!

    • Pharap
  • BeachBlastoise

    Everyone favorite 7th Gen Pokemon so far?

  • Ben Rhodes

    Oh cool, I’ll stop commenting now

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      WAIT WHAT????

      • UnburdenedLegume

        GamexPlain fishing for subscribers maybe? No way they have the demo 6 days early

        • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

          its not the demo they were invited to nintendo to play the first 2 hours

    • UnburdenedLegume

      What the hell is this?

    • Ithsme

      Well are they gonna post the footage!?!

      • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

        most likely arent allowed. but he does mention there is some pokemon he saw he can’t talk about which is odd

        • Ben Rhodes

          I assumed that means unrevealed Pokemon

          • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

            yea ik which i find odd to the point theres still early mons we don’t know about

          • Ben Rhodes

            I like the idea, I mean, he played 2 hours, so those 2 hours possibly only covers the first island, so theres bound to be something on that island we haven’t seen yet, and that’s pretty cool, don’t want all the first island Pokemon ruined.

      • Wes

        There were some screenshots that I hadn’t seen before. Had we seen the interior of the Pokemon Center or the clothing shop and I just missed it?

        • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

          no we haven;t

          • Wes

            That makes me wonder if the other people who got to play it were given unique screenshots to ‘reveal.’

          • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

            a bunch of articles r up rn

          • Wes

            I guess I’m just out of the loop today. Thanks anyway!

    • Pharap

      Grid based movement gone… ; n ;

      Hrm, it’s just the guy talking. Thought it was going to be worth it, but it’s just another boring gamexplain video.

      • Wes

        With the grid gone, how well egg hatching work? Would it be time instead of step-based? Or can it still work the same way without a grid?

        • You can still calculate steps without a grid

        • Pharap

          You can still count steps without a grid, but I like the grid system because it’s a nod to the good old days of sprites and it’s easier to control the character for bits where you have to be careful.

          • Daniel

            Probably actual animated steps?

          • Pharap

            Probably tracks the amount of distance the player has travelled and compares the previous value with the current value and every time the floored value increments, they do a step tick.

  • TheSunnyMonster6893

    Oh god I’m so excited!!!! I’m gonna be reading through so many articles that have the previews!! lol

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Looks like Alola Raticate Totem battle happens early on in the game

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      Also it can happen during the day (in game) so it’s not a scene that forces you to battle it during any particular time of day.So that’s cool. lol

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      i think it was confirmed that Gumshoos/Raticate totem would happen early

      • UnburdenedLegume

        I must’ve missed that then

    • Pharap

      Almost certainly the first, they’re the totems of Melemele.

      • Fairy

        Especially since we’ll probably get the Normalium Z from them, which looks like it’ll be our first Z-Crystal.

  • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat
    • Daniel

      That’s a new screenshot if I ever saw one.. where?

      • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat
        • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

          scroll all the way down to the last bunch

          • Daniel

            Yeah, “stock” photos given to those that took part in preview of Sun & Moon. They all have the same pictures.

    • IsaiahHoyt

      Oh look its hilary

  • So why isn’t Alolan Grimer a ground type and it’s all sandy and stuff?

    • DaiShogunNB

      oil spill maybe and we already got a sandcastle pokemon

    • Pharap

      You’ve missed a lot of stuff.

      We’ve also been suggesting fire magma Grimer and water purified Grimer.

      • This was the least exciting corocoro so far. Well besides the one where they showed the box art but not really. Maybe it means there is a lot in store on the 14th

        • Pharap

          I’m still half expecting it to be declared a hoax.

          • Why?

          • Pharap

            Because A) Grimer is hideous, B) we’ve been waiting hours for more info, C) we’ve only got their word for the other pokemon and D) pretty much everything but the Grimer in that scan is recycled.

          • Rockcrawdaunt

            Also is that the usual artwork for grimer? Or???? (Cuz if they didn’t even change the pose and such, then I’m even more suspicious)

          • Pharap

            I think the image in the corocoro scan is a new drawing, which doesn’t really prove anything either way. Notably the eyes are very close together though.

  • Also I hope Jangamo-o’s evolution is shown soon! I need to know if I’m going to have to replace Pikipek with it

  • Cosimo

    Just show Type: Null evolution and Jangmo-o evolution until more info is released Friday… I’ll be fine with that. It also looks like they’ll discuss Alolan Persian with the Meowth standing next to Grimer.

  • Pharap

    Of the newly released screenshots, I like these the best:

  • DaiShogunNB

    On the surfboard there’s a white Alolan Raichu? Possible Alolan Pikachu?
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/31a2cf7beb15f7a1bd94df605f84adcab7b5c7cfaaaa469e3f287653f0930e31.jpg

    • We’ve already seen pikachu haven’t we?

      • DaiShogunNB

        It wasn’t confirmed that Alolan Pikachu doesn’t exist. We just saw an ordinary Pikachu evolving into Alolan Raichu.

        • -.- That means that there is no Alolan Pikachu

          • Ben Rhodes

            We’ve also seen it in the wild

          • DaiShogunNB

            And who says so? Who confirmed that? Nothing official about it yet. We don’t know if a special item can be used on either normal or alolan pikachu to evolve it into alolan raichu.

          • That makes no sense

        • Pharap

          Star meant “we’ve seen regular Pikachu, haven’t we?” not “we’ve seen an Alolan Pikachu, haven’t we?”

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      IS THIS THE SHINY ALOLAN RAICHU?

    • Wes

      Probably just an artistic detail. Maybe even a shiny form.

      • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

        I was close im happy I wanted silver surfer but oh well

    • Pharap

      Probably shiny like @EastGovnah:disqus said.

      • DaiShogunNB

        yeah probably >_>

  • PumpkinBomb

    I hope the leaker is dead..

    • I feel like I missed a bunch. Why do we have still have unconfirmed stuff?
      Why is Grimer dark type?
      Where are the other pages?
      Why didn’t you show Jangamo-
      o evolution that’s all we care about

      • PumpkinBomb

        I belive its getting late in japan now, so they probabbly wont post anything else, I just dont know whats the matter this time, they always post the whole thing on 11th of each month, this is weird

        • Cosimo

          I feel like last month they did the same thing, where only a bit was released then the next day there was more information. I mean, they do know how to pull us in and leave us wanting more, that’s for sure!

        • TheSunnyMonster6893

          It really depends on who is leaking. This person doesn’t want to risk legal action is all it is. Past leakers typically throw caution to the wind, but this time the leaker seems to be more worried. Very understandable if you ask me.

          • PumpkinBomb

            where are the other leakers ?

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            It’s not like there’s a team or anything. It’s just whomever ends up getting a copy early. A person might get a copy early one month, but not be able to the next

          • PumpkinBomb

            I cant belie that only one person got it early, if I had the magazine I would have posted the whole thing the moment I put my hands on it…

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            Well yeah it’s possible someone else might come along and post stuff, but who knows at this point. Again it’s illegal in Japan to post these kinds of leaks so it’s perfectly understandable for people to not want to stick their necks out for info coming only a few days later.

          • Pharap

            They just need to make sure it’s nice and anonymous. If they used TOR and transferred it via the dark net they’d be more secure.

  • EarthenWarrior

    well i’m back from my Birthday breakfast what i miss

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      Gamexplain played 2 hours of sun and moon. and new screenshots

    • Fairy

      People are half giving up on the leaker, half wanting to kill him

      New gameplay details from peeps who got to play through

      And I’m certain you sabotaged my battle Maison streak :p

    • UnburdenedLegume

      You missed the video of GamexPlain playing actual footage of S/M. Apparently they were invited to play the first 2 hours by Nintendo San Francisco.

      • EarthenWarrior

        i’m watching that now

        • Pharap

          It’s not really worth it, most of the video is them blabbing on endlessly about the expected stuff. They could have just written a summary that could have been read in about 2-3 minutes. They don’t really reveal anything new.

  • TheSunnyMonster6893

    So I’m reading this one article about the preview and it sounds like Kukui challenged the indigo league at one point while he was researching Pokemon moves hahaha

  • jk

    I hope the cute dragon doesn’t turn into dragon/fighting. This thing of throwing fighting as a second type to everybody is getting way out of control.
    Ps: I hope they don’t screw alolan starmie.

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      Starmie is confirmed to be regular tho

    • I really wanted it to get steel or fairy typing but I’ll wait to see how it looks before I get too upset

      • Actually is it was fairy I would almost be running mono fairy save for Salandit and Lurantis 😛

    • Pharap

      No alolan Starmie.

      http://i.imgur.com/OUEX2t0.png

      • There probably is no Alolan Starmie but the mom also has a regular meowth

        • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

          because u just moved from another region….

        • PumpkinBomb

          they came from another region ,remember ?

        • Pharap

          The player’s mother came from a different region, hence so did the Meowth.

          As it stands, there’s no reason to suspect that Starmie is from another region here, especially since it’s seen next to Corsola, a Pokemon we know is definitely available in the region.

          • Wes

            But we can’t definitively say it isn’t from a different region. Lusamine said she wants to help Pokemon all over the world, so it’s completely reasonable to have Pokemon from other regions in the AF. Do I believe this to be the case? No. But it’s a point to consider if you’re going to make assumptions like the one you made.

          • Pharap

            No, but we can say what’s more likely. Based on what’s been seen. So far apart from Meowth, we’ve never had a Pokemon seen in game later get an alolan form. And the exceptional case of Meowth is explainable given that only one is ever seen, it’s owned by the player’s mother and it’s stated to come from another region.

            For another thing concept art showed regular Staryu on the side of the large white hotel/embassy.

            Assuming they’re deceiving us and Starmie has an alolan form is much more of a cognitive leap and has much less supporting evidence.

  • I don’t know what is happening anymore

    • BeachBlastoise

      Let’s wait until Friday we’ll have our questions answered

  • Pharap
    • Examine?

      • Pharap

        That thing people do when they stand away from the painting, put their hand on their chin or their hands behind their back and stare intently at the painting.

        I could’ve said ‘admire’ but that would imply simply drawing a plain old Heracross is something admirable, or that the art is good, which is debatable 😛

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Heracross <3

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      I like Heracross a lot. Nice work!

  • The Queen of Peace

    Probably nothing coming to us till Friday now. Leaker must be caught or something

    • Has that happened before?

    • DaiShogunNB

      or could just be douche who likes seeing others ‘suffer’

      • TheSunnyMonster6893

        Once again I think you’re acting like they “owe” us something……….Just feel lucky enough to ave gotten the Grimer leak and get over it lol

        • I’d rather we didn’t get that though

        • DaiShogunNB

          And again you’re assuming that i’m acting and thinking like that. How bout you get over your assumptions? *InsertLOLheretonotseemoffensive*

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            So you’re saying that you’re just joking then? I have no problem with people being frustrated with not knowing what the rest of CoroCoro has, but acting like the person who is leaking the magazine SHOULD give it to us is a bit silly if you ask me. If you’re joking then fine and I rescind my comments, but there’s only so many times I need to see people complaining about something as dumb as receiving info a day or two early……I don’t mean to get into an argument so I think what’s best is if we just agree to disagree for now…….

  • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

          • Pharap

            “How u did it” != “How u made it”
            ‘Did’ is ambiguous.

          Don’t you know he’s a shiny pokemon God.

      • EarthenWarrior

        i will begrudgingly admit i like the scheme

        • UnburdenedLegume

          YES

      • Pharap

        The white paws look a bit weird, they should have changed colour to keep the contrast.

  • DefensiveBastiodon

    OKAY new theory to go with my last one about the Apokélypse in the New Testament. Theimre will be a normal human that will claim to be God/Jesus and that is when the Apocalypse will happen. Type: Null could be an attempt to create an artificial Arceus and its type will change with the Plates. THEN ARCEUS DESTROYS THE WORLD IN GEN 4 REMAKES

    • EarthenWarrior

      hmmmmm Apochimera!!!!

    • Ultron

      Wow, it’s going to be really awesome in Gen 4 remakes when we can bring Type:Null to a legit wild Arceus encounter <3

  • Does it bug anyone that Type Null is apparently getting an evolution?

    • Chicolombia

      no

    • TigerMasku

      I think they should just give it a maskless form instead, but whatever.

    • zess

      Not in the slightest.

      • It just seems like it is kinda special and man made so evolving it is weird. Porygon makes sense because it’s like a computer and it updates but Type Null is organic

        • Pharap

          And Porygon actually needed an item to make it evolve.

          Making Type:Null evolve would mean having solved the mystery of why pokemon can evolve to the extent that they can emulate it.

    • Pharap

      Immensely.
      I was expecting it to be a boring one-stage, now it’s a boring two-stage.

    • Ultron

      Slightly, because I thought it was going to be the only of its species and this makes me feel like there will be many for some reason..

    • Wes

      To be fair we haven’t seen it yet. Until we got better translations it was thought that Wishiwashi’s school form was an evolution.

      The high tech part of the healing part of the pokecentre kind of ruins the nice wodden/hut feel the rest of it.

    • I’m starting to think that it may be a hoax

      • Armaggedon16

        It could be, because I don’t see them revealing jangmo-o’s whole line.
        But it probably isn’t ..

  • Wes

    Yesterday I was toying around with some theories to explain why we can capture the God of Pokemon, and I may have come up with something. What if Arceus isn’t God? Arceus’ etymology suggests that it’s name may come from ‘archaic’ or other similar words, but what it’s supposed to be ‘archangel’ instead? I’m theorizing that there’s actually a higher being that created Arceus who in turn created the Pokemon world, and that’s why we can capture ‘God.’

    Bonus: The UBs are the gods that created Arceus, and they’re wreaking havoc on the Pokemon world because they’re infuriated that humans are attempting to replicate their power with Type: Null.

    • Ultron

      Arceus may not be YOUR god, but he will always be mine…. 😉

      • My god is Malo from Twilight Princess

        • EarthenWarrior

          funny coincidence i’m watching a let’s play of TP HD
          and specifically the Midna lament arc

        • Ultron

          He super ug

    • Well you actually can’t catch Arceus. The azure flute wasn’t distributed because game freak decided against it. The events idk

      • Wes

        Well that’s even worse. Who has the power to gift God?

        • Game Freak?

          Wait… holy shit

          Game Freak is always there. Watching. They are in every game. They are creating the world you inhabit. GAME FREAK ARE THE GODS OF THE POKEMON WORLD

        • Pharap

          GF being god makes waaay more sense than Arceus being a god.

      • DefensiveBastiodon

        The Azure Flute scene was weird lol. I had to use an Action Replay for it. It was even weirder when you transfered event Arceus to SS/HG to create and egg for a second Girantina, Dialga, or Palkia

    • belmad

      Arceus is “believed” to be God.

    • Ultron

      I don’t see how it isn’t the “god” or shall we say cardinal deity of the pokemon world. It resides over the creation trio. If that doesn’t make you a god, idk what does.

      • Pharap

        Even their power is limited.

        • Ultron

          It may not be “all powerful,” but it wouldn’t be a pokemon if it was. It’s possible that Arceus has an ancient form (avoiding using the words primal here) where its power was 10 fold. Who knows, they haven’t elaborated much. I will say this introduction of UB’s and Type:Null is highly interesting and I definitely think they’re planting seeds for a Sinnoh remake in which there could be a “delta episode” chapter with Arceus.

          • Pharap

            If it’s not all powerful, it’s not a god.

          • Ultron

            Maybe within the context of our world and our concept of religions and gods. I think it boils down to GF not realizing what kind of can of worms that they’d be opening for the franchise at the time, but I think they’re circling around to a point where they’re ready to answer those questions.

          • Pharap

            Just being worshipped doesn’t make something a god.
            A creator god must always be omnipotent in a monotheistic religion.
            Polytheistic religions change the rules slightly, but without Palkia, Dialga and Giratina being described as gods, we can’t really assume there’s polytheism involved.

          • In Rise of Darkrai, the creation trio is described as deities. I know they are separate canons but still

          • Pharap

            I wouldn’t count that because it’s anime based and not game based. The anime isn’t exactly known for following the rules of the game.

          • Ok but this isn’t “aiming for the horn”. This is supported in the games by Cyrus seeking out their power to CREATE A NEW UNIVERSE

          • Pharap

            Just because Cyrus believed they could, that doesn’t mean that they actually could.

          • You are really stretching here. Game Freak obviously intended that to be gods

          • Pharap

            It wouldn’t be the first time a villanous leader has been wrong about a legendary pokemon.

    • Pharap

      I’ve always thought Arceus isn’t god.
      It makes more sense that humans saw its power and simply called it a god, without realising it’s just another legendary.

      I don’t think there is a god Pokemon, they probably all evolved from radiated bacteria. Heck, maybe humans evolved from Pokemon.

      Don’t like the ‘Bonus idea’ because it would mean ‘gods’ are beatable.

      • Actually most humans in Pokémon don’t even know Arceus exists.

        • Pharap

          How can we even be sure it’s a god if there’s no in-game talk of it being one?
          Besides, someone must know if there’s a Pokedex entry, the player doesn’t write them.

          • Well people like Cynthia research Arceus and know about it. Heck we don’t even know who writes the dex entries

          • Pharap

            Which brings us back to “how do they know it’s a god” and “who actually calls it a god in the game?”.

            I’m starting to think it was never a god and fans just assumed.

            And I always assumed it was just the regional professor doing it.

          • It is clearly supposed to be a god though

            -Encountered in Hall of ORIGIN which is a floating staircase above Spear Pillar, a holy site in Sinnoh

            – Creates a Dialga, Palkia or Giratina in HGSS, Pokemon that are basically gods

            – Arceus and the Jewel of life has many biblical references. His judgement could be tied to God’s wrath on Judgment day

            – His name literally has daus as part of its name origin

            – Hoopa movie shows Arceus Preists

            – Is referenced as the original one and creator through out DPPt

          • Pharap

            It’s never stated what the hall is the origin of, and humans most likely named it.

            Those aren’t necisarily gods either, just legendaries. It proves that it can create Pokemon, but so can humans and humans are not gods.

            That depends if you accept that as canon.

            That’s a fair point, but again, that only shows it’s god-like. It could easily be a false god.

            That proves there is a religion centred around him, but not that he is god. Egyptians once worshiped normal humans as if they were gods.

            But there is no proof that it is actually capable of creating a world or region, and it’s possible it just created the Sinnoh region.

          • Daniel

            Do you have a minute to talk about Arceus?

            I’ve always seen PokeDex entries as Developer’s input/stories for players. Otherwise, it doesn’t make sense that you capture an unknown PKMN and immdiately have a description. It’s stupid! If you go by that, then we at least know it created the universe.
            Well, not that it matters, we’ll most likely know in Sun & Moon.

          • Ultron

            Evidence fans cite:
            -Referred to as “The Original One”
            -Signature move is Judgment
            -GF never let us catch it
            -Highest BST of all non-mega/reverted pokemon
            -Master of Lake Guardians and Creation Trio
            -It literally CREATES an egg for 3 legendary pokemon, something that is conceived impossible to do within the lore of the game

            So maybe a lot of it is fan inference, perhaps, but they give us a lot to go off of. It may not be a god, but it is a creator and perhaps the first pokemon.

          • Pharap

            “The original one” could mean that it is only the original Sinnoh pokemon, not the original pokemon of all the world.

            Its move being Judgement is more fair, but judging people doesn’t necisarily mean it’s a god.

            GF intended people to catch it originally.

            That’s certainly a fair point, but is by no means damning. It’s only 40 points more than Mewtwo and Mewtwo was man-made.

            There are lots of trio masters.

            That’s impressive, but that doesn’t mean it’s a god. Humans have created a legendary pokemon before (Mewtwo). Mew is believed by scientists to be the ancestor of all pokemon, which raises the awkward question of whether Arceus created Mew or whether Arceus is decended from Mew.

  • Rocke

    MOAR !

  • Dyneos

    just gonna leave this here

    “In fact, Trials are so different you’re not even battling your way to being the very best anymore. You’re fighting to be crowned the “Island Challenge Champion” by working your way through the Seven Trials and learning from the Kahunas across the new Alola region, which is absolutely stunning by the way.”

    7 Trials

    http://www.digitalspy.com/gaming/pokemon/review/a810712/pokemon-sun-and-moon-review/

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      ok so like
      you got 7 captains
      7 totems then
      4 Kahuanas

    • Pharap

      Well that’s dissapointing if it turns out to be true.
      Downgraded from 8 battle challenges to 7 miscellaneous quests.

      • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

        and 7 totems

        • Pharap

          Standalone pokemon.
          They’ll be flattened within minutes from a single powerful move unless there’s some kind of obscure mechanic we haven’t been informed of. When it’s 6v1, you tend not to care about conserving pokemon.

      • >Implying gyms are challenging

        They haven’t been challenging since Gen 4. Maybe Drayden in BW was tough but gyms are pretty easy

        • Pharap

          You’ve been spending too much time on 4chan 😛

          Still though, would you rather battle a gym or walk around a forest picking up mushrooms?

          • lol I rarely ever go on 4chan and when I do it’s looking at Pokémon “leaks”. I recently replayed Y and Black and they were so easy. Might as well have something that gives us insight into the world

          • Pharap

            I meant using the > as a quote thing. That’s a very 4chan thing to use 😛

            With or without exp share on?
            I’ll admit they aren’t always challenging
            (tbh I can’t remember the last time I lost to a trainer in a pokemon game that wasn’t part of the battle facility (not even the champion), I don’t think I’ve lost to anyone since maybe the second game I’ve owned)

            I’d still rather fight a gym leader than go picking up mushrooms or fishing for specific pokemon, or smashing a certain number of rocks.

    • Ben Rhodes

      They only played 2 hours though. Meaning there could be more Trials, and if they played 7 in the first 2 hours, there could very well be 18

      • Pharap

        From the way it’s written it implied they were told that there are 7 trials, not that they completed 7 trials in the 2 hours.

        It’s very possible that the writer got the wrong end of the stick or made a mistake when writing though.

        • Ben Rhodes

          Yeah reading later on they say they never did the first so it’s likely they were told, though, why would they be told that?

          • Pharap

            Like I say, they might have got the wrong end of the stick somehow, or it could have been a translation issue or something.

            I’ve known people they employ to distribute pokemon be incapable of pronouncing the names of the pokemon or remembering which pokemon they’re giving out.

          • Ben Rhodes

            I imagine it like this
            The reporter: “So how many trials are there”
            Person: “I dunno like, Seven, I guess”
            The reporter: “Oh cool seven thanks”
            *Puts seven in article*

            Seven just seems like an random number, and without the pun, Odd

          • Pharap

            7 Battle Frontier Symbols in Hoenn I suppose.

            But yeah, that’s the sort of things reporters do. Reporter brain instead of Pokefan brain.

        • Maybe more trials open up in the post game

          • Pharap

            I’d rather believe the journalist got it wrong.

    • TheReece25

      Well this is just proof Ash can’t be replaced until the end of next gen. He always wins these little side things.. like the other islands and battle frontier. Would be really anti-climatic

  • Shady

    While waiting the Leak just break the fake. http://i.4cdn.org/vp/1476242269918.png

    • I’m going to be honest I thought somethig very different was going in here

        We just waiting.

      Time & Effort

    • Shady

      But something very different was going in here.

    • CoolGlaceon

      Cuz ORAS is half-assed. As much as I liked ORAS, it’s true.

      • It wouldn’t even take that long probably. A couple days at work.

      • Vlad

        I actually just started playing ORAS last week and I’ve been having so much fun. I personally feel that the entire game is very fleshed out and innovatitive

  • John Moreshead

    I actually like the design

    • What do you like about it?

      • TheReece25

        xD

      • TheReece25

        It’s likely better in motion

      • John Moreshead

        I like the yellow stripe and the teeth

  • TheReece25

    wth. . .I expected to come back n see a full update. Why not?

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      he didnt want to post anymore

    • 1) It’s a big hoax
      2) Leaker got caught
      3) Leaker is just terrible and chose not to post anymore
      4) This is all a simulation of reality and there was a glitch that made Coro Coro not leak completely

      • zess

        Ohhh I like the fourth option.!🙃

      • richie_btvs

        Since i saw coro coro leaking during 2/3 days…. im expecting more tonight…
        If not…. ill think its a hoax until the real deal!

  • Exeledus

    I… was kinda expecting a little more than this..

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      there is more the leaker just being stubborn

  • Does anyone prefer Emerald (or even just ruby and sapphire) to ORAS? I’m planning on getting a cart soon

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      I never played gen 3 fully till ORAS

    • Ultron

      No because Battle resort, soaring, and blissey bases. Emerald only really has nostalgia and the BF going for it over ORAS.

      • I prefer its music and graphical style. ORAS’s music seemed to be kinda lazy just taking the song and giving it a 3ds sound font with out doing much to make it different or improve upon it. RSE also seems more lush and bright

        • Ultron

          That’s fair. The music in RSE was a bit more dynamic, I think it enhanced the environments in a more robust way.

    • CoolGlaceon

      I don’t, solely cuz the mechanics, visuals and features are outdated. But the Gen 3 games are still extremely fun to play, especially with the Battle Frontier, which for something that came ages before the Maison, is still waaaaay superior.

    • PumpkinBomb

      ORAS Was a big improment over RS, but I would get the carts anyway for collecting purpos

    • Exeledus

      I still have my emerald, with the battle frontier completed sitting over on my dresser in my dsLite

  • Ultron

    So I guess there’s no third character to receive the last starter in this gen? Unless it’s Lillie or maybe Gladion somehow..

    • Probably Lillie. At E3 it showed something chirping in her bag that was probably Rowlett

      • Ben Rhodes

        While it’s possibly the other starter, which does make a bit of sense, for now I still feel that was a Zygarde core

      • Ultron

        That’s true. But makes me wonder how we’ll encounter it and its evolutions if she’s opposed to battling. It’d be out of character if she just goes, “well, I suppose it wouldn’t hurt to battle you for research, right?”

      • TheReece25

        No part of me believes it’s a starter. That’s not shocking at all

  • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat
    • Wes

      I think Unova has my favorite Center.

      • I’m too nostalgic for Sinnoh. That night theme <3

        • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

          i hope since 12 hours apart for both games, we can have day/night music again

          • It kinda baffles me how many mechanics get left out in each installment. Walking with Pokémon, seasons, radio, rematches, battle frontier, PWT and Poketch too name a few

          • Stevosan

            I think we all know just how much the BF is missed, how the heck can’t they see the demand for it? Surely plenty Japanese fans want it too. It’s so strange.

            God I miss seasons so much and I only just realised…. Siiiigh. 🙁

      • Epic Ninfia

        Alolas looks the best

    • Ultron

      I always loved the staircases in Johto and Unova.

        but I think that the fire/fighting type one would be able to get on all fours to speedily pounce prey and opponents.

        • It’s actually going to be Fire/Dark most likely

          • Shady

            This is will be my nightmare if isn’t …..we don’t have any Dark pkmn until now and Fire/Dark starter is very old dream.

          • Exeledus

            if only I didn’t look like a fire fighting that would be awesome. even if it is dark, theres no reason we couldn’t have gotten a sleeker, more majestic panther kinda thing.

    this alolan form sucks, and i even liked rattatasche & rata-ate “cheek pouch”

    • Exeledus

      wait theres people who didn’t ike the new rattata and raticate? I mean, yeah theres people who don’t like them but I just kinda assumed that they were generally well liked.

      • Jon Idoncair

        rattata with a mustache seems ridiculous and raticate looking like it has the mums aren’t all very appealing but i still liked them anyways but this…….this grimer, no just no

    • Chaos

      You liked Faticate. That thing looks like it’s going to explode.
      Grimer looks better than that balloon

      • Jon Idoncair

        “and i even liked-” meaning i know alola raticate looks eh but still has a major difference in visuals compared to alola grimer’s counterpart

  • TCRowlet

    Not that it wasn’t well speculated, but we got confirmation that the character we play as moves to Alola via plane from the Kanto region. That’s cool.

    • STOP THE SPECIAL TREATMENT OF KANTO

      • Exeledus

        this

      • TCRowlet

        Eh, at the very least it’s a nice nod to the first region given the 20 years. And this is purely speculation, but if the 2nd region theory really does come true, I really hope it isn’t Kanto we go back to. Kalos please…

        • Daniel

          It’s the anniversary of were/when it started.

      • UnburdenedLegume

        20th anniversary, 4 islands, Alolan formes. The Kanto love is already highly present in these games

        • Exeledus

          see this is something I don’t get. people say “well, yeah its the 20th anniversary, of cpirse they are going to pander to kanto” but the point isn’t “20 years since red/green/gen1” its “20 years of Pokémon, all the games that we’ve had throughout the years as a collective thing”

  • I’m really angry how much Kanto is getting special treatment. Arguably the worst games in the series getting love for it being first. I thought we were celebrating 20 years not 1996. Acknowledge the other regions. The ones that actual fans enjoy. Give us Alolan forms of Z moves of Pokemon from all regions. Give Maractus some attention, or Vespiquen. Pokémon that need something to make them stand out.

    • SpectralSeraph

      Or yknow, Lumineon perhaps?
      Or actually cater to the fans and do something about Flygon and Milotic (Wink)
      The only Kanto Pokemon that REALLY needs attention imo is Jynx cause gen 4 evos. Besides that, NOTHING else should be getting any

      • They keep trying to get people who left after gen 1 and 2 back. The people who aren’t Pokemon fans. It just frustrates me so much.

        • SpectralSeraph

          (Gen 2 does deserve a bit of love tho… Gen 1 has been overdone too much…)

          • I’m not saying it doesn’t. All this gen 1 love should go to 2 if anything

          • SpectralSeraph

            Exactly
            Gen 2 has many mons with improvement needed
            Gen 3 is almost satisfied, they just forgot Flygon
            Gen 4 is in a good state but needs a bit more love
            Please save gen 5… It gets so much hate
            Gen 6 is too recent for change

      • TheNintendoChip

        Lumineon is so beautiful! It’s one of my favorite, if not my favorite, water types!

        • SpectralSeraph

          He was my first shiny, so I had an instant connection. :3

    • TCRowlet

      I don’t really like Kanto, but R/B can’t be blamed for being the worst games in the series. They started everything despite having obvious limitations. Naturally compared to all the future games that get to introduce more and more features with better hardware R/B are going to look bad. But without Kanto kicking things off, there’s no Sun and Moon to be looking forward to. That said, I do agree and wish everything about Pokemon was being celebrated rather than the focus seemingly being Gen 1 nostalgia.

      • Just because it was first doesn’t mean it isn’t the worst. Of course later games would be better but it still leaves it as the worst

        • SpectralSeraph

          My fave gen 2 mon got a mega at least :3

        • TCRowlet

          I agree it is the worst, but that isn’t a reason to fault it. When you’re comparing it to all the future games that got to introduce more stuff and look even better, the Gen 1 games should be the worst.

          • But I mean even outside of technical limitations. The remakes aren’t all that great compared to even regular gen 2

          • TCRowlet

            It’s the same game under a new skin with a bit of post-game. The story is still bland and the towns/cities are boring. I’m just saying the hate for it being the worst isn’t warranted, but the hate for it constantly being pandered to is haha.

            Nothing to do with anything, but the only time I enjoyed Kanto was getting to go back to it as a post-game region. But I’d be angry if it was a post-game region for a 2nd time. That’d throw me over the edge. We’ve been there done that with Kanto, it’s nice to reference it here and there, but I don’t need to go back.

      • Pharap

        It’s not the lack of mechanics, it’s the blandness of the region. Very few notable monuments. At least Johto had the ruins of alph, a lighthouse and pretty pagodas.

  • SpectralSeraph

    Can we all just point out how scary these mons will be in competitive?
    I mean, a possible dragon dancer with possible drain punch that can switch in on a hyper voice

    • Mega Gardevoir will destroy it

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Megas not allowed in 2017 VGC

        • Regular Gardevoir will do. Actually Mimikyu would make for an even better counter. Doesn’t take damage from fighting or dragon moves, free substitute and fairy moves

          • SpectralSeraph

            True true, just Jang Evo will be a scary threat

      • SpectralSeraph

        1. Switches in on Hyper voice for pro plays
        2. Does not need to stay in on psychic moves

    • EarthenWarrior

      hang on there
      we don’t know if they’ll even get most fighting moves
      they could get the Swords of Justice treatment

      • SpectralSeraph

        Let’s hope not…
        Also I got to say this.
        If it gets it, I’d personally recommend dual chop, only cause I mean
        Dragonite and focus sashers

        • EarthenWarrior

          i run Dual Chop on my Garchomp
          but this could end up staying quadrupedal ergo no punches and only kicks and close combat

          • SpectralSeraph

            If it does I will literally die…
            Let’s PRAY that doesn’t happen

    • Shady

      Use Disarming Voice and it will die.

      • SpectralSeraph

        Soundproof

        • Shady

          I would say this to Star Storm …….but this is Karma dude.

        • EarthenWarrior

          and no Hyper Voice

        • SpectralSeraph

          I’m looking forward to the choice scarf poison Jab set people will probably run with it for fairies XD

    • Exeledus

      its ability may change though. not always, but the pseudo legendaries do often have an ability change on their last forms.

      • Dregoon

        That’s assuming it is the Pseudo Legendary. It isn’t confimed yet and if it’s evos are indeed in the Corocoro than I doubt it is one since they NEVER reveal them before the games come out.

    • Daniel

      Well, they will most likely introduce a Thunder version of Fairy. There is Play Rough and Moonblast too.. It all depends if we get a priority Fairy move.

      5: battle frontier, we’ve yet to receive any info regarding this as of this moment.

      • SpectralSeraph

        That too, I really want that as well
        But not the Sinnoh one!
        The good one

        • I actually prefer the Sinnoh one

          • SpectralSeraph

            Huh…
            ….
            (Is dead inside)

          • Maybe I just don’t have enough experience with the hoenn one idk

          • SpectralSeraph

            It’s perfect tho…
            (Except for the battle palace… This is why we don’t let Blazekins think for themselves)

          • Exeledus

            that freaking battle palace…. I beat the entire frontier with 3 pokemon, ninetails, salamence, and ludicolo. except the palace. ludicolo, who was a toxic/leech seed staller, would not do what he was meant to do. so I had to go catch a specific nature regice who did do what it was meant to in order to take down palace maven spencer.

  • Lunaala may end up being my favorite legendary. Right now it’s a tie between Lugia and Reshiram but Lunaala is so pretty

    • SpectralSeraph

      AGREED!!!
      I remember a few days before the announcement I said
      “I would LOVE in the moon legend was a bat! It’ll probably be some stupid-ass wolf, but I REALLY want a bat!”
      Than Lunala came out and I literally screamed in joy

      • I love how it’s wings and head have like, space in them. And the crest and mmmmmmmmmMMMM I love it!!

        • SpectralSeraph

          And also I even had the perfect name for it!

          • What are you going to call it? I’m just naming it Lunaala because the translation team is full of idiots who think “Lunala” is acceptable

          • SpectralSeraph

            Antasma
            Y’know, Mario and Luigi dream team? I immediately thought of him. Why? I dunno

          • I’ve never played it. The only experience I have with Mario and Luigi games is Chuggaconroy’s play through of the first one

          • SpectralSeraph
          • ITS PERFECT!!!

          • SpectralSeraph

            Exactly!! That’s the first thing I thought of!

      • Hope

        See I wanted a moon wolf (mostly I just wanted a wolf pokemon Thank you so much lycanroc) but i find Lunaala so pretty! I am so glad everyone who was saying it was going to be a lion design was wrong!

        • SpectralSeraph

          Tru!

    • Exeledus

      1: Reshiram
      2: tie between ho-oh and lunala

      • I used Reshiram in the aftergame of my recent Black play through and I love it

      • SpectralSeraph

        Lunala is the ONLY legendary who even got CLOSE from taking the crown from Kyogre….
        The only reason Kyogre beats it is cause of something it did for me the other day

    • TCRowlet

      Lunala is amazing, the reason I’m picking Moon.

      My favorite legendary is Complete Zygarde.

    • Hope

      Lugia and Lunaala are tied for first followed by Xerneas and latias (well the lati duo but I prefer red over blue)

      • I would like Xerneas more if he didn’t have that stupid neutral form and wasn’t caught in that boring lab

        • SpectralSeraph

          I like it!
          (Geomancy is seriously annoying tho… Aka why I don’t like it as much as I would)

        • Hope

          Well in fairness the legendaries in X and Y were give boring catch areas! As for the neutral form I agree but I can’t help love that we have a giant deer god that has rainbow horns there so pretty!

          • SpectralSeraph

            I can’t help but picture a psychedelic Bambi when I see it..

          • Hope

            Princess Mononoke is what comes to my mind. …. I think I watch to much anime

        • Exeledus

          xerneas is my 3rd favorite.

    • Wes

      My favorite is Giratina Origin form. Lunala might be my favorite after using it though.

      • Hope

        Oh I forgot Giratina! Giratina is so cool!

    • Pharap

      Mewtwo for me.
      Solgaleo might come close to upturning it, but I like Mewtwo’s lore and juxtaposition with Mew.

  • TCRowlet

    Not sure if it’s been stated yet, but 3D doesn’t appear to work in battles at all anymore. Personally, I don’t care. I can’t remember the last time I turned 3D on. My eyes are too sensitive.

    • I love how the 3D feature just died

      • TCRowlet

        I never cared for it, I just wanted to play new games xD

    • EarthenWarrior

      my eyes are dying, the 3D is like a knife in my eye veins….and that worries me
      because if i go blind…that’s it…game over…. can’t play video games, can’t write or type, can’t draw….game over

      • TigerMasku

        You don’t believe in afterlife?

        • EarthenWarrior

          i know for a fact that when i kick the bucket i’m going to hell

          • Lol same

          • Shady

            Y creature like u will going to hell.

          • TigerMasku

            Out of topic:

            I’d say the creator of this giant big universe has nothing to lose, he can forgive you and give you eternal happiness if he likes, you just try and ask him. Can you imagine your wildest dreams true. Believing in afterlife can give you hope for a better tomorrow.

            I dream about riding Rayquaza in outer space.

          • Exeledus

            wouldn’t space be here, therefore not the afterlife?

          • TigerMasku

            LOL in heaven you get whatever you want

          • Exeledus

            sweet more gummi bears when I die from eating too many gummi bears

          • Pharap

            At least you’ll have company.
            Unless the multi-ring theory is true and we end up in different rings.

      • Leo

        Normally people get used after a few days of using the 3D option. Do you play video games with the lights off?

        • EarthenWarrior

          usually i’m talking about now
          my eye has been killing me all day today

          • Leo

            Take a break then, go to bed earlier

    • Hope

      According to the people who have played 2 hours of the full game there is still 3d in battles but I believe it is optional like before

      • TCRowlet

        https://twitter.com/GameXplain/status/786240180306849793

        I’ve seen this among other reports saying 3D only works in the Pokemon Snap features.

        • Hope

          interesting. Either way I never use 3d so I doesn’t matter to much to me. though I am interested in the conflicting reports

        • Daniel

          Way too heavy in XY.. Put trainers and backgrounds there and the 3DS might crash. Better than Sun & Moon being New 3DS exclusive.

    • Pharap

      I never use the 3D.
      I’m used to not using it.

  • Why does cutiefly’s look so cute I can only use 6 Pokémon and I want it

    • SpectralSeraph

      Because

      • It’s got tiny legs and a cute little brown scarf thing and I want it

        • SpectralSeraph

          I’m very eh about it

        • EarthenWarrior

          i want to see it set on fire

    • Armaggedon16

      It looks like one of those useless cute Mon like Cherubi and Lilligant

      • Ok lemme stop you there Lilligant is amazing

      • Wes

        Lilligant is a beast. It’s far from useless.

      • Exeledus

        on a side note, I really wish cherrim was good.

  • Hope

    So according to the GameExplain two hour play through they encountered pokemon they can’t talk about yet. Does anyone one have any idea what types they might have encountered? or do you think they just saw evolutions of what they encountered (starter, pikipeck, ladyba, and Yungoose) Sorry for the bad spelling! 😛

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      they could talk about ledyba yungoos, and starter evos because we’ve seen them

      • Hope

        yep I know that but I am wondering if there are pokemon (new) that we haven’t seen that are encountered early or if it is like in the early generations were there are only like five or so pokemon encountered in the first part of the game

  • UnburdenedLegume

    8 days till we are forever saying goodbye to the greatest Pokemon that has ever appeared in the anime. #RipGreninja

    • Exeledus

      I was a big fan of james’s chimecho. then It got sick and I got sad. but the anime is awful so it dosnt really matter

      • Exeledus

        replying to myself lol. that being said I would really love for james to get a Bewear this season. he seems to get the painful huggy types.

        • Pharap

          One of Jessie or James gets one.

  • Caleb

    Where are those leaks come on im starting to think these were fake

  • Pharap

    Is it me, or is that a coffee shop in the Pokecentre?
    http://serebii.net/sunmoon/pc1.jpg

    • SpectralSeraph

      Omg… Starbucks?!

      • Exeledus

        that was addressed to you now

        • SpectralSeraph

          because I am w….
          Not gonna go on that joke

    • Exeledus

      nah, not enough hipsters and white girls

    • I’m pretty excited about the built in Starbucks

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Its Amsterdam style. Alolan marijuana available

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      Golduck’s coffee and brewery

    • Cosimo

      It could be where you buy potions and stuff. And the other side is pokeballs and that sort of stuff.

      • Pharap

        Could be, would be a bit odd though.

        (Ignore my deleted comment, trying to reply to too many people XD)

      • Ultron

        No, you can see potions on the shelves over on the right

    • Daniel

      I quite like the look of it.. And not having a separate Mart never bothered me.
      I assume these are for the Poke Pelagos Level-up island?

      • Pharap

        The integrated shop never bothered me.

        I doubt it’s pokepelago related because A) it’s got a coffee cup symbol and B) the hut for the pokepelago is in a north east island up top of the map.

        The PC might act as an interface though since it’s supposed to be linked to the PC.

        • Daniel

          Yeah, I meant the drinks you buy for the Pelago thingy.. who knows.

  • Alyssa Dunn
    • metapod

    bored…..absolutely bored
    i can’t believe this jizzrag is withholding information, and on my Birthday no less
    I swear Jangmo-o better be good

    • Stevosan

      Aw, I hope your wish after blowing out the candles (Moar Earth types obvs) , comes true. 😉

  • Pharap

    Gonna post this again before I loose it once more.

    http://i.imgur.com/WZVTCrv.png

    • EarthenWarrior

      a thorny devil?

      • Pharap

        Horned lizard, painted like a Druddigon.

  • Pharap
  • Daniel

    It seems Tackle went back to low Base status in Sun & Moon. Tackle is now nerfed with 40 Base power (Serebii).

    • EarthenWarrior

      ….who cares?…….. it’s only tackle?

    • I had no idea it was ever buffed

    • Ultron

      Good. I was always afraid of crits from my rival during the first battle 😛

      On second thought: what a nerf for magikarp 🙁

    • Armaggedon16

      When was it even buffed?

      • Ultron

        I think gen 5..

  • Armaggedon16

    There so many creative and logical ideas for Alolan forms such as pure water Grimer, a Fire/Rock Golem, fire/water lapras with a volcano on top instead of the shell.
    And over here we have game freak randomly slapping type on to things. Plus they are kanto only for some shit reason

    • EarthenWarrior

      i don’t think Pure Water Alolan Grimer makes any sense
      I mean its a pile of sludge, if you take away the sludge then no grimer

      • Armaggedon16

        Since Alola is a tropical island, it means less pollution so it would get rid of it’s impurities and become water type.
        Makes a lot more sense than Electric/psychic Raichu ._.

        • Fairy

          Grimer is its own impurities though.

    • Chaos

      Must be something in the air of Alola. That turns good natured gunk monsters evil

      • EarthenWarrior

        my theory is that Gimer found its way to the Alolan region, and that since a pure and sunny tourist location it was no place for Grimer they drove them away and since they had no habitat they had to fight back…….ugh they’re freaking bio-hazardous slime they would have no natural predators

  • Victor Troche

    So nothing new in the last 5 hours…

    • This is all so odd

      • Victor Troche

        At the very least a pic of the 2 rumored evos would have been nice, I don’t really care for Alolan forms cause it’s basically recycling

        • I see it more as reimagining older pokemon

  • qolf

    Alolan Grimer is basically the same idea as Trubbish. Why rehash things that have already been done when there are so many other ideas that haven’t been used for pokemon. Like if they wanted a trash-based pokemon they could’ve just made a Roach thats bug/dark or bug/poison.

  • DaiShogunNB

    Wonder if this leaker got caught….hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

  • Armaggedon16

    I’m seeing a lot of people complain about the new interface since it tells you which moves are super effective against which, and I find that stupid. It makes no difference to me since I have already memorised them,and it’s just a small thing to make it appeal to newcomers
    However I will be pissed if it shows stuff like ground moves being immune due to levitate,grass types being immune to leech seed etc

    • I don’t know resists really so this is nice

    • Chaos

      Most people have them memorised.

      Personally I just don’t want the interface to be too cramped with info. I want simple, single word, buttons so it looks nice.

    • Spetsnaz

      i mean, sometimes i forget a certian pokemon has a different secondary typing, so it’ll be nice

    • Wes

      I can never remember Drapion’s type, so I don’t mind the feature.

  • Chaos

    I have yet to see an Alolan form that I like enough to actually use in-game. Doesn’t look like their will be since most Kanto Pokemon don’t really appeal to me anyway…
    Even having said that my current game team for Sun consist of only 3 Pokemon..

    Rowlet
    Rockruff
    Salandit
    Jangmo-o

    Come on Gamefreak, give us something

    • EarthenWarrior

      dat’s four
      and i only got three
      Litten, Rockruff and Mudbray

      • Chaos

        Yeh I meant to say 4

        But Jangmo-o is not definite at the moment. Depends on its availability

        • EarthenWarrior

          shite….i just realized…all of them have a Water Weakness

        • UnburdenedLegume

          I don’t expect Jangmo-o to be available early on in the game. If it is the pseudo-legendary, I reckon we can’t catch until at least somewhere midway through the 3rd island.

    • Armaggedon16

      I’ll definetly use
      One of the starters
      Rockruff
      Type:Null
      Jangmo-o

      I may also use
      Salandit
      Pyukumuku
      Pikipek

      If their evos are good.

    • Shady

      U shouldn’t be that cautious while Isle Evelup exist.

    • If Jangamo-o is cool I’ll probably use it. If not then I’ll stick with my baby Pikipek

      • Shady

        I don’t think u will like Pikipek final evo …..pkmn like us most of time they r cute just in 1st stage.

        • It seems promising. Plus it looks like Pearl so that’s cool.

      • Chaos

        With Jangmo-o it depends on when it’s going to be available. Hopefully not really late, cos I won’t bother as I’ll have to grind it up.

    • Fairy

      I have the opposite issue, I want to use everything revealed so far! I think I’ll definitely keep my starter (Popplio) with me but my teams going to constantly flux :s

    • Rockcrawdaunt

      That’s exactly my team I’m doing so far!

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      what about palossand

      • Chaos

        I like the Pokemon, but unfortunately not enough to use in my playthrough.

        I also like the two Oranguru, Passimian and Crabrawler, but again not enough to use in a play though.

  • Shady

    It’s not funny but ppl like these stuff. http://is.4chan.org/vp/1476272831425.png

    • Pharap

      Already got posted a few hours ago.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Jose Otero of IGN tweets that stereotypic 3D for battles in S/M are no longer an option and only available for PokeFinder

  • Banzai

    aaagh, how come the *one* page we have is the one with the least interesting stuff?

    and since people below were talking about it, here’s my prospective team so far:
    -Rowlet
    -Lycanroc (Midday)
    -Ninetales (Alolan)
    -Marowak (Alolan)

    and maybe Jangmo-o, i’ll decide on it when/if the rest of this magazine ever leaks…

    • Popplio
      Ninetails – A
      Mimikyu
      Salandit
      Lurantis
      Pikipek/Jangamo-o

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Mimikyu <3

        • EarthenWarrior

          i promise i will find one, and use its sheet as toilet paper

          • UnburdenedLegume

            One little Shadow Claw oughta get rid of it

          • EarthenWarrior

            not if its in the sun

  • I’m getting more and more salty over the leaker posting the low point of this month’s Coro Coro

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      Why? We’ll see the full scans/info in two days or less. If it’s all that great then it’s worth waiting for lol

      • EarthenWarrior

        Into the death pit with you
        go on get

        • TheSunnyMonster6893

          Oh come now hahaha

          • EarthenWarrior

            *kicks you in*

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            I can fly so sorry about that lol

          • EarthenWarrior

            *use Elemental control to shoot pellets of stone out of the ground*

    • UnburdenedLegume

      There’s new info coming in less than 2 days anyway

      • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

        and what if its literally a 40 second trailer for grimer lol

        • UnburdenedLegume

          Then Earthen will unleash his wrath on everything and everyone

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      me rn. from all the scans he picked that one

    • Pharap

      Still a possibility that it’s actually the high point and the other bits are worse.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Rowlet
    Rockruff
    Salandit
    Vikavolt
    Alolan Ninetales

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      The only ones I know 100% sure are

      Litten evo
      Vikavolt
      Bewears

      I wanna get a water type and might use the sand castles do ground, but not sure.

  • So is Alola Arcanine still possible?

    • TheGreatGuardian

      No. Famitsu had an article saying that all the Pokemon in their regular forms on the official site do NOT get Alola forms. Arcanine was one of them

      • :(((((

        • TheGreatGuardian

          I know, I was hoping for a water type arcanine. Ah well, there’s always next time.

  • blastrocks2010

    SPOILERS

    Digital spy mentions that there are seven trails and that HM01 is not Cut but Work up instead

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      work up a sweat now… feel the burn

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Seven trials doesn’t even make sense. Just 8 to keep tradition going or 18 (1 for every type) seems more plausible imo

      • blastrocks2010

        Thats what they reported from playing the 2 hour preview

        • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

          only one did. one guy reported the demo was 400gb

          • UnburdenedLegume

            I think you mean 400mb?

          • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

            no he said 400gb and the games are a follow up to pokemon go

          • Pharap

            What kind of an idiot employs journalists that make those kind of mistakes?

          • You missed it

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

    • That makes no sense though

    • They probably mean TM01.

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Work Up is TM01

    • Pharap

      Pretty sure HMs are gone given the ride system.

  • My team for Moon:

    -Popplio
    -Pikipek
    -Mudsdale
    -Jangmo-o

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      im using mudsdale too.

  • DaiShogunNB

    Since everyone is posting their future S/M teams I will to.
    I plan to use Pokemon from Alola that I can relate and name them after the Greeeds from Kamen Rider OOO (Google them).
    Rowlet = Ankh
    Litten = Kazari
    Jangmo-o = Eiji Hino
    Oranguru = Gamel
    Vikavolt = Uva
    Water Pokemon (Undecided) = Mezool

  • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

    MY MOON TEAM HERE
    Litten-Vito
    Komala- Reginald
    Mudsdale- Bojack
    Bruxish- Alizée
    Alolan Marowak- Bonnie

  • thegreatcarbinkle

    competitve wise I love the new typing of alolan grimmer. Muk already had a good special defense and hp, average defense and a good movepool, hopefully with his new typing it would impact the tiers.

    but design wise: lame, lazy, ugly. They could have done a better job

  • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

    honestly since nobody can talk about the games expect for stuff we already know. i wont take anything as facts lol

    • This last month of waiting is so painful

      • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

        im guessing we got 3-4 trailers left including this one

    • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

      People saying tthis, someone said this, and people saying this aint true.

  • It’sYaBoi EastTorracat

    Alolan Grimer is gonna be the great mighty poo from conkers bad fur day
