With E3 in full swing the Internet is abuzz with new video game news, including some exciting new developments for Pokemon fans. With some exciting new gameplay being demonstrated, including an exciting new battle mode, Nintendo have also given us a sneak peak at three more brand new Pokemon.
Yungoos is a normal type loitering Pokemon with the abilities Stakeout and Strong Jaw that appears to be based on a mongoose.
Pikipek is a normal/flying type woodpecker Pokemon with the abilities Keen Eye and Skill Link.
Grubbin is a bug type larva Pokemon with the ability Swarm that looks to be based on a Witchetty Grub.
With all regions featured in the series so far being populated by bird Pokemon, normal Pokemon and bug Pokemon in it's earliest stages are these three going to be filling those roles as some of the first Pokemon in the Alola? I hope so, especially as Grubbin is surprisingly cute for a creature based on a larva.
Despite only being revealed in the last two hours the three new creatures have already ignited fans imaginations online, in some cases with bizarre results.
