Four new Pokémon have been revealed for the upcoming games Pokémon Sun and Moon.
The new Pokémon were showcased via a video to the Pokémon Youtube channel, and they are:
Crabrawler – Fighting type crab Pokémon with the ability Hyper Cutter/Iron Fist, which seems to be a rapid slashing style attack.
The next two are an evolution pair:
Sandygast – Ghost/Ground type that uses its Water Compaction ability, which raises its defense stat by 2 when it is hit with a Water-type attack.
Palossand – Also Ghost/Ground, the evolution of Sandygast also has Water Compaction, and according to Nintendo Insider:
Unlike Sandygast, if Palossand loses some of the sand from its body, it can restore itself on its own. When moving about in search of prey, the shovel on top of Palossand’s head revolves. It’s said that the shovel could be serving as some kind of radar.
Palossand loves the vitality of Pokémon and drags small Pokémon into its body so it can steal their life force. Its sandy vortex swallows them up in a heartbeat! Pokémon dragged into Palossand leave traces of their ill will behind. It’s thought that this negative energy may be the starting point of new Sandygast…
And lastly, the next major selling Pokémon plush toy:
Stufful – A Normal/Fighting type Pokémon with the ability Fluffy/Klutz. The best part about Stufful is that they even included a small tag coming from its backside! Stufful also evolves into Bewear.
You can see the Pokémon in action in the Youtube video below.
Pokémon Sun and Moon will be released for the 3DS on November 18th, 2016.
