Pokémon Sun and Moon Leaks!
So, some new Pokémon leaks were found in this month’s CoroCoro. If you want to see the pictures, please click here (I’ve been having some issues with the websites new theme!)
The first is Rockruff’s evolutions… or, two evolutions. See, there are two forms to Rockruff’s evolution, Lugarugan. One will evolve during the day, it seems, and is called the “Midday form.” This form has access to the new priority move “AccelRock.” The other one is called the “Middnight form” and possibly evolves during the night. It can also use the move “Counter.”
The second piece of information were two.. or one new Ultra Beast? Yes, this is certainly a bout of ambiguous leaks! The first is UB02 Beauty and as the name suggests, it is a beautiful and intimidating creature. It seems this Ultra Beast will be fought in Pokémon Moon. The other, which I’m not sure if it is the same or not, is named UB02 Expansion. It is a very muscular, angry red, mosquito creature! It seems this Ultra Beast will be fought in Pokémon Sun. In their specific game, it seems these Ultra Beasts will be fighting Tapu Koko. Finally, UB01 does have a name… but we do not know what it is.
Lastly, I’ll quickly mention that Type: Null (according to CoroCoro) DOES have hidden power and the next issue will cover what ever these mysterious strengths are.
Pokémon Generations… The Series!
Perhaps you remember the “Pokémon Origins” miniseries that released a bit ago that showed off the adventures of Red in the Kanto region. Well, it seems that The Pokémon Company was inspired to do an entire full series similar to what the Pokémon Origins series was called Pokémon Generations. It will show off various events through all the regions we’ve seen so far (some of which we can see in the trailer) and will each last 3 to 5 minutes. Also, the first two episodes release September 16th. Woo hoo!
Thursday, September 14th
So, a short new trailer for Pokémon Sun and Moon was released and it shows a much better look at the two new Ultra Beasts. The first is known as UB-02 Absorption and the other keeps the name UB-02 Beauty. Absorption will be found in Pokémon Sun, while Beauty will be found in Pokémon Moon and it doesn’t seem like these two are connected. They both have these insect feel to them, though, I wonder if that is a coincidence…
Beware of the Specter of Torment
If you have been following the Shovel Knight news, you’ve probably heard that the second DLC expansion pack to Shovel Knight has been officially announced. This one stars the lanky, gloomy, and very powerful Specter Knight. Yacht Club Games promises more content than offered in the Plague of Shadows expansion pack with this one! They also released a little teaser on Specter Knight’s abilities in this game. Finally, you should look forward to this, as it is coming Spring of 2017!
