The newest Pokémon have been revealed in a leaked image from the latest issue of CoroCoro, with the bear Pokémon “Kiteruguma” and “Mimikkyu the Ghost-type Pokémon. [Thanks, Serebii.]
Kiteruguma is a Normal/Fighting Pokémon and has the Fluffy and Klutz abilities. They say that the people of Aloha are scared of Kiteruguma to the point of having warnings signs about it. They’re really strong and can break anything in two. Kiterugumas like to hug their owners but raising one also puts your life in danger.
Next up is Mimikkyu, a Ghost/Fairy Pokémon. It has an ability called “Disguise.” If you’re wondering why it has an eerie resemblance to Pikachu, it’s actually wearing some sort of Pikachu goodie that was popular 20 years prior. And the reason for that is because it wishes to be friendly with humans just like Pikachu.
Mimikkyu doesn’t like sunlight and prefers being in dark places. It is rumored that it uses its cloth for avoiding the sun. They also say that those who try to see what it looks like underneath the cloth get inflicted with an illness.
Pokémon Sun & Moon will release for Nintendo 3DS in Japan and North America on November 18, and in Europe on November 23, 2016.
