Six new Pokemon have been officially revealed for Pokemon Sun and Moon, including two that were leaked last week. The new Pokemon are as follows:
Wimpod: a Bug/Water Pokemon that resembles a Horseshoe Crab. According to the Pokemon Sun and Moon website, Wimpod is a cowardly Pokemon that is easily startled. It also collects garbage and items from the ocean's floor, making it a target for treasure hunters and collectors. Wimpod has the new Ability "Wimp Out" which causes it to automatically flee or switch out when its HP drops below half strength.
Bounsweet: a Grass Pokemon that looks like a fruit. Bounsweet has a pleasant aroma and people often uses the Pokemon as an air freshener for their homes.
Comfey: a Fairy Pokemon that resembles a lei, a traditional wreath of flowers used in Hawaii. Comfey collects flowers and gives them to people it likes. Comfey can have the new "Triage" ability, which gives its healing moves the highest priority in battle.
Mudsdale: a Ground Pokemon that resembles a Cyldesdale horse. Mudsdale's legs are covered in protective mud and it can wreck a car with a single kick. Mudsdale has the new "Stamina" ability that increases its Defense whenever attacked.
We also got the English names of the two Pokemon leaked last week. The Ghost/Fairy type that resembles Pikachu is called Mimikyu and has the "Disguise" ability, which creates an automatic decoy that blocks attack for one turn. The Normal/Fighting bear Pokemon is called Bewear. Images of all six Pokemon can be seen in the Photo Gallery below.
Two new features were revealed: Hyper Training and Custom Competitions on the Pokemon Global Link. Hyper Training will allow players to increase the IV levels of their Level 100 Pokemon. A man named "Mr Hyper" conducts the training in exchange for Bottle Caps.
Players will also be able to create and host online Custom Competitions that anyone can compete in. Players will be able to set the rules and conditions for their Competitions. Pokemon Sun and Moon will also introduce ranked Online Competitions and "Live Competitions" to instantly link players that are playing in the same physical space together.
