More On: Pokemon Sun and Moon

A new trailer has been released that highlights six more new Pokemon for the upcoming Pokemon Sun and Moon.

  • Wimpod (Bug/Water)
  • Bounsweet (Grass)
  • Comfey (Fairy)
  • Mudsdale (Ground)
  • Mimikyu (Ghost/Fairy)
  • Beware (Normal/Fighting)

Some people have commented that Wimpod is going to be the Abra of Generation 7 with it's Wimp Out ability which lets it flee from battle.  I'm not sure if it can flee whenever it wants or only when it's HP reaches a certain amount, which actually makes it better than Abra who only knows Teleport at lower levels giving you very little chance to catch it.

Also, Mimikyu.  Just...Mimikyu.  That's probably one of the goofiest designs for a Pokemon I've seen in a while, and in a series with 700+ creatures that's saying something.  At first I thought it's Disguise ability meant it was going to be Ditto 2.0, but it kind of reminds me of the move Substitute only it doesn't consume your HP and you don't have to use a turn to use it.  I'm not sure if Disguise will go off randomly or if there are set conditions for it to activate, so that should be interesting to see how that plays out.
