The next generation of mainline Pokémon games, Sun and Moon, is coming out around the world this November, so the steady stream of new information is continuing and likely won’t be slowing down until launch. This latest bunch of details comes from Japanese magazine CoroCoro Comic.
It has already been revealed that a couple of first generation Pokémon, including Vulpix and Sandshrew, would be getting new variants with different types, but it looks like they won’t be alone. Meowth in Alola will come as a Dark-type and, more interestingly, Marowak comes as a Ghost- and Fire-type mix. Of course, both creatures have also received a redesign to better reflect their new types.
Several brand new Pokémon have also been revealed. Yowashi is a Water-type that is, quite appropriately, a fish. Next up are a pair of Ghost/Ground types, Sunabaa and its evolved form, Shirodesuna; both are effectively haunted sand, with the former taking the shape of a pile of sand and the latter appearing as a sand castle. Finally, the previously revealed Bewear has been shown to be the evolved form of Nuikoguma. The magazine also revealed that another of the recently announced Pokémon, Rockruff, has an evolved form that will be shown off next month.
Finally, the group of evil trainers in this generation will come in the form of Team Skull. Two members were shown off: a woman named Burumeri and the group’s leader, a man named Guzuma.
Please keep in mind that the names of these new characters and creatures, excluding Bewear and Rockruff, are likely to change once they are officially revealed in North America. It’s exceptionally rare when a Pokémon gets the same name in every region of the world, so expect some changes.
