Nintendo have released new information on even more brand new Pokemon creatures set to debut in the upcoming Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon this week, with six brand new monsters added to the Alola Pokedex.
Bounsweet is a fruit Pokemon. Because it exudes a delicious smell from its entire body, Bounsweet is popular with Pokémon and people of the Alola region. Bounsweet’s scent has a calming effect on humans, so many people let them live inside their homes as a sort of air freshener. Unfortunately, it’s sometimes swallowed whole by Pokémon drawn to its aroma.
When running away from other Pokémon, Bounsweet flees danger by skipping along the ground. Since its bouncy movements don’t convey to others that it’s actually in desperate flight, no one ever comes to its aid.
When attacked by enemies, it drives them off by rotating the calyx on its head. The downside is how dizzy it gets afterward!
Mudsdale is the Draft Horse Pokemon. Mudsdale is known for its powerful body as well as its emotional fortitude, which keeps it from being agitated by anything. It never cries out, no matter what kind of trouble it’s in, and it defeats its opponents with a single powerful blow. Its legs are coated in protective mud, and the weight of this coating increases the force of its kicks. One kick, and a car is a pile of scrap.
Mudsdale’s running speed is not too swift, but it has excellent power and stamina. It can carry on for three days and three nights despite dragging loads of over 10 tons.
When Mudsdale gallops in earnest, the power of each hoof-clop can dig out huge holes, even in asphalt. Mudsdale is forbidden to run on some of Alola’s public roads.
Mudsdale can have the new Stamina Ability, an Ability that no other Pokémon has had before. With the Stamina Ability, this Pokémon’s Defense goes up by 1 when it’s hit by an attack.
Bewear is the Strong Arm Pokemon. When Bewear is acting in a friendly fashion, just swinging its arms around, you must never dare to approach it carelessly. It is acknowledged to be a dangerous Pokemon, even within the Alola region. You may see warning signs posted near places it resides.
When Bewear grows fond of its Trainer, it may show that feeling in a fond embrace - but the force of that hug is tremendous. Trainers must teach these Pokemon to restrain their strength when showing affection.
Beweat may have the Fluffy Ability, which halves the damage taken from attacks that make direct contact, but in return it also doubles damage taken from Fire type moves.
Wimpod is the Turn Tail Pokemon. Wimpod have a cowardly nature and are weary of noises and sudden movements. If you approach them in a group, they'll immediately runoff. The stench of its toxic fluid signals others that danger is near. Despite their extreme cowardice, their curiosity leads them to approach people or Pokemon that are standing still.
Wimpod eat and store everything that they find fallen on the ground. They also scavenge any garbage that's been dropped in the sea, so they're highly values as cleaners. They sometimes carry pearls or other valuable items, so humans or Pokemon such as Murkrow may target them.
Wimpod has the new Ability Wimp Out, an Ability that no other Pokemon has had before. With the Wimp Out Ability, if this Pokemon's HP drops below half in battle, it will run away or swap out for another Pokemon.
The Posey Picker Pokemon, Comfey picks flowers and always carries them around. It makes a ring of blossoms and spreads oils from its body onto it, which changes the flowers so they emit a soothing fragrance. It has a habit of giving these flower rings to those it's fond of. The aroma can soothe both itself and its allies. Comfey also helps with the treatment of people and Pokemon in Pokecenters and hospitals, thanks to its aroma.
When attacked by other Pokemon, it throws its flowers at them to create an opening, and then it either flees or fights back.
Comfey have the new Tirage Ability, an Ability that no other Pokemon has had before. With the Triage Ability, this Pokemon's restorative moves gain the highest priority in battle.
As the disguise Pokemon, Mimikyu lives its life constantly covered by its cloth. People believe that anybody who sees its true form beneath its cloth will be stricken with a mysterious illness. People in the Alola region are convinced that you must never try to peek beneath its covering. Mimikyu's health fails when it's bathed in the rays of the sun, so it prefers to stick to dark places. It is rumoured that the reason it covers itself with a cloth is to avoid sunlight.
The ride in popularity of Pikachu style merachandise around 20 years ago is the reason that Mimikyu makes itself look like Pikachu. In fact, this Pokemon is dreadfully lonely, and it thought that it would be able to make friends with humans if only it looked like Pikachu.
Mimikyu has the Disguie Ability, a new Ability that no Pokemon has ever possessed before. The disguise ability allows it to escape damage from an enemy's attack just one time, then its appearance changes.
You can check out all of these new Pokemon in the latest Pokemon Sun and Moon trailer.
