Discover More Pokémon and Meet Team Skull in Pokémon Sun and Moon / September 2016 Corocoro

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced on August 1st, 2016 just after the last batch of information was released that new information about Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon would be revealed on August 11th, 2016. That information was released today and features information on Team Skull and Pokémon. High resolution images from the press release have been added to our Imageboard thread.

New Pokémon—Wishiwashi, Pyukumuku, Morelull and More Alolan Pokémon Variants—Revealed for Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon!

New details about Alola region ruffians Team Skull also announced
Bellevue, Washington—August 11, 2016— The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced several new Pokémon and characters that can be found in the highly anticipated Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon video games, available exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. These Pokémon appear in the newest Pokémon video games, launching in North America on November 18.

Team Skull

In the Alola region, a group of ruffians known as Team Skull causes a lot of trouble. They steal other people’s Pokémon, mess up the trial sites, and delight in all kinds of evil deeds.

Guzma is the boss of Team Skull, the one who holds these ruffians together. Guzma pours on the attacks, battling without mercy. He certainly does seem strong, but he claims that he “never could become captain.” He seems to have a bone to pick with Professor Kukui, as well. Plumeria is considered the big sister of Team Skull. She’s a tough lady who keeps the members of Team Skull in line and working together, in the sort of way a strict older sister would. She seems to care for the Grunts who are below her in the pecking order, and she’s not one to let it go if anyone gives them a walloping. Both male and female Team Skull Grunts wear matching black Skull Tanks. And these uniforms aren’t even provided for them—all Grunts have to buy their own!

The newly revealed Pokémon include:

Wishiwashi Pyukumuku Morelull
ThumbnailThumbnail Thumbnail Thumbnail
Type: Water Type: Water Type: Grass/Fairy
Wishiwashi have a new Ability, Schooling, which no Pokémon has previously had. Under certain conditions, Wishiwashi will change in battle to their School Form.

· Solo Form
A single Wishiwashi is tiny and weak. Measuring just eight inches from nose to tail, Wishiwashi is very small, even for a Pokémon. Yet the people of the Alola region seem to view it as a terrifying Pokémon. When it’s in danger, Wishiwashi’s glistening eyes catch the light and shine out, sending a distress signal to its allies.

· School Form
The seemingly weak Wishiwashi is called the demon of the sea because of its ferocious School Form. When Wishiwashi receive a distress signal, they unite in a huge battle formation.
Due to their appearance and way of life, Pyukumuku are considered unappealing to tourists. Part-time work pulling Pyukumuku off the beach and chucking them back into the sea is available at tourist beaches. But no matter how far they’re thrown, Pyukumuku will always return to the same spot. Pyukumuku have a new Ability, Innards Out, which no other Pokémon has had before. When this Pokémon faints, Innards Out lets it dish out a final bit of damage to its opponent, equal to the amount of HP it had left before it received the final blow. Morelull are nocturnal Pokémon that walk around at night on their leg-like roots. They move because staying in one spot and sucking all the nutrients from the soil would cause surrounding plants to wither. With their roots, they make contact with other Morelull and communicate with one another.

Pokémon Adapted to the Alola Region

Some Pokémon have adapted to the distinctive microclimates of the Alola region and have taken on different forms than they have in other regions. These Pokémon are called regional variants. After settling in the Alola region, they live like native Pokémon. These regional variant Pokémon can have different appearances and types, and their way of living can also differ from that of the forms previously known.

Type: Dark Type: Fire/Ghost Type: Electric/Psychic
Meowth is a Pokémon that did not originally live in the Alola region. They were sent to the royal family of Alola as an offering from another region, and only a select few could have them as partners. It’s said that the Meowth that were offered to the royalty lived a life of luxury and pampering, which led them to have a selfish and prideful attitude. This caused Meowth’s form to change. The Marowak in the Alola region take bones and light both ends on fire by rubbing them against their foreheads. Then they spin the bones around! Marowak’s rarity and its fearsome appearance when it dances with its bone led the people of Alola to dub it a conjurer and regard it with fear. The Raichu in Alola have two types—Electric and Psychic—and they are able to wield psychic power. What’s more, they can gather their psychic power in their tails and then ride on them to float in the air!

Pages from the August issue of Corocoro Comic have leaked, revealing two new Pokemon. Translations follow:


We have obtained super awesome information on the new Pokémon games. Incredibly, despite being a set of southern islands, the Alola Region has true horrors to it!?

A Corocoro-exclusive scoop:

The first reveal of Pokémon that would be really scary if they were real...

There are lots of unidentified Pokémon in the Alola Region, where the new adventure is set. And some of them are scary!?

Iwanko: There are lots of unidentified Pokémon in the Alola Region!! This is the Pokémon Corocoro wants you to pay the most attention to!

Species: False Colors Pokémon
Type: Ghost/Fairy
Height: 0.2m
Weight: 0.7 kg
Ability: False Colors

The Pikachu in the Alola region look weird? No, this is actually a yet-to-be-identified Pokémon!

It lurks in the darkness
It hates sunlight and prefers dark places. Rumor has it that the reason it always wears a cloth is to protect itself from the sun.

And when you look underneath...
It's said that all those who have looked at its true form beneath the cloth are now suffering from a mysterious disease.

And the reason it takes after Pikachu...!?
It has to do with Pikachu merchandise being all the rage 20 years ago!?
It appears it wants to befriend people just like Pikachu did...

Iwanko's "wan" bit of commentary: Woof! ("Scary! It looks like Pikachu's eyes and mouth, but apparently they're actually just drawn on.")

Species: Strong Arm Pokémon
Type: Normal/Fighting
Height: 2.1m
Weight: 135.0 kg
Ability: Fluffy/Klutz

It will come hug its Trainer, but its physical strength is superhuman. It seems raising one is a danger to your own life...

Its back muscles have the strength of one ton. When using both arms it can break absolutely anything in two.

It looks cute, but is really scary
They are considered a danger in the Alola Region as well, to the point of signs warning against them being set up.

Iwanko's "wan" bit of commentary: Woof! ("Apparently they're also known as "The Fighting Kings of the Forest". These guys look strong...!!")
