It is about time I see some Pokemon news I actually care about, after days of Pokemon Go (a “game” that I personally think is complete rubbish), Pokemon Sun and Moon news is a breath of fresh air, and Coro-Coro has delivered us two new Pokemon. Note that the names that I give you today are not the official English names (given Coro-Coro is a Japanese publication), and with that out of the way lets talk about the new Pokemon.
The first of these Pokemon is a bear like creature called Kiteruguma, and much X and Y’s Pancham it is a normal/fighting type. Kiteruguma has the abilities of Fluffy or Klutz and it is said that in the Pokemon world, this creature likes to hug its trainer but it is also very strong so it hurts people.
The other Pokemon is Mimikkyu, this one is a ghost/fairy type that acts as your typical ghost of a creature under a sheet, to many people it brings to mind Ditto as its sheet looks like a crudely drawn Pikachu. People are theorizing that this Pokemon will come in multiple forms sharing a certain look with a variation of Pokemon. Below are the scans showing these two Pokemon and there is even a full description as shared by Serebii.net’s Joe Merrick:
People in Alola are scared of Kiteruguma to the point of having warning signs about it. It is very strong and can break anything in two. It likes to hug its trainers but is strong. Raising one puts your life in danger.
Mimikkyu hates sunlight, preferring dark places. It is rumored that the cloth covering its body is a strategy to avoid the sun. Don’t try to remove the cloth it is said that those that do become afflicted with an illness.
In terms of these Pokemon I feel they share a similar vibe to many previously revealed Pokemon, they are unbelievably adorable, and more importantly I look forward to seeing what their evolution’s will be.
