Pokemon Update (09/20/16)


Newest Pokemon

The latest Pokemon Sun and Moon video has released. The video features several new Pokemon. It focuses on the version exclusive Pokemon. The ape-type inspired Pokemon, Passimian is found only in Sun. He is considered a “helper,” type Pokemon. It has a new ability, Receiver, which “no other Pokémon has previously had. With the Receiver Ability, this Pokémon can inherit the Ability of an ally who faints in battle.”  Passimian resembles a Lemur and carries a green melon with it. Passimian psychical stature resembles that of an athlete in a huddle.


The Moon exclusive version is, Oranguru. Clearly based on an Orangutan, it has a sage like look to it. Oranguru has a unique move called, Instruct, that “can make the selected target use its most recent move again immediately.”  We also get to see the Pokemon Sun and Moon exclusive evolution for Rockruff, Lycanroc (Midday) and (Midnight) forms. I have been disappointed with the designs of the new Pokemon lately, however, the designs of these four Pokemon are actually good.

Customization of characters

Pokemon Sun and Moon would return the customization of characters. You can change your character from head to toe, adding some individuality to your character. The video also introduced, Pokemon Refresh.

Use the Pokémon Refresh feature to care for your Pokémon. After a battle, Pokémon sometimes end up all dirty. When that happens, you can take care of them and get them all cleaned up. By caring for your Pokémon, you can also cure status conditions like poisoning and paralysis that were inflicted on your Pokémon in battle.

Pokémon that have grown very affectionate, thanks to petting them a lot and feeding them their beloved Poké Beans, will battle to the utmost for you. Sometimes they’ll avoid attacks from opposing Pokémon—and even hold out when they’re on the verge of fainting. Take good care of your Pokémon with Pokémon Refresh, and they’ll be great allies on your adventure!
