Semakin mendekati tanggal peluncuran Pokémon Sun & Moon, tampaknya The Pokémon Company tak berhenti untuk menampilkan Pokémon terbaru yang akan Trainer temukan di Alola. Kali ini, terdapat enam Pokémon lucu (dan tidak lucu) serta dua fitur baru yang hadir dalam Pokémon Sun & Moon.
Bounsweet adalah Pokémon tipe Grass dengan ability Leaf Guard/Oblivious. Sesuai namanya, Bunsweet mengeluarkan aroma wangi dari tubuhnya yang dapat menenangkan. Bounsweet biasanya tinggal di dalam rumah manusia sebagai penyegar ruangan.
|ABILITY||Leaf Guard / Oblivious|
Because it exudes a delicious smell from its entire body, Bounsweet is popular with Pokémon and people of the Alola region. Bounsweet’s scent has a calming effect on humans, so many people let them live inside their homes as a sort of air freshener. Unfortunately, it’s sometimes swallowed whole by Pokémon drawn to its aroma.
When running away from other Pokémon, Bounsweet flees danger by skipping along the ground. Since its bouncy movements don’t convey to others that it’s actually in desperate flight, no one ever comes to its aid.
When attacked by enemies, it drives them off by rotating the calyx on its head. The downside is how dizzy it gets afterward!
Bewear adalah Pokémon tipe Normal/Fighting dengan ability Fluffy/Klutz. Dengan ability Fluffy, Bewear mengurangi setengah serangan (yang menyentuh) dari musuh namun menjadi lemah dengan serangan tipe Fire. Walaupun tampak menggemaskan, Bewear dikategorikan sebagai Strong Arm Pokémon.
|CATEGORY||Strong Arm Pokémon|
When Bewear is acting in a friendly fashion, just swinging its arms around, you must never dare to approach it carelessly. It is acknowledged to be a dangerous Pokémon, even within the Alola region. You may see warning signs posted near places it resides.
When Bewear grows fond of its Trainer, it may show that feeling in a fond embrace—but the force of that hug is tremendous! Trainers must teach these Pokémon how to restrain their strength when showing affection.
Bewear may have the Fluffy Ability, a new Ability that no Pokémon has ever possessed before. The Fluffy Ability halves the damage taken from attacks that make direct contact, but in return it also doubles the damage taken from Fire-type moves.
Comfey adalah Pokémon tipe Fairy yang memiliki ability Flower Veil (juga dimiliki oleh Flabébé/Floette/Florges)/Triage. Ability Triage memungkinkan move berefek menambahkan HP (misalnya, Synthesis) yang dilakukan oleh Comfey berfungsi lebih dulu saat bertarung.
|CATEGORY||Posy Picker Pokémon|
|ABILITY||Flower Veil / Triage|
Comfey picks flowers and always carries them around. It makes a ring of blossoms and spreads oil from its body on it, which changes the flowers so they emit a soothing fragrance. It has a habit of giving these flower rings to those it’s fond of. The aroma can soothe both itself and its allies. Comfey also helps with the treatment of people and Pokémon at Pokémon Centers and hospitals, thanks to its aroma.
When attacked by other Pokémon, it throws its flowers at them to create an opening, and then it either flees or strikes back.
Comfey can have the new Triage Ability, an Ability that no other Pokémon has had before. With the Triage Ability, this Pokémon’s restorative moves gain the highest priority in battle.
Pokémon dengan wujud kuda ini memiliki tipe Ground dan ability Own Tempo/Stamina. Dengan ability Stamina, Mudsdale akan meningkatkan DEF setiap diserang (wah, masochist ya). Walaupun tidak terlalu cepat, Mudsdale dapat membawa beban berat (hingga lebih dari 10 ton) dalam jangka waktu lama; now that’s STAMINA!
|CATEGORY||Draft Horse Pokémon|
|ABILITY||Own Tempo / Stamina|
Mudsdale is known for its powerful body as well as its emotional fortitude, which keeps it from being agitated by anything. It never cries out, no matter what kind of trouble it’s in, and it defeats its opponents with a single powerful blow. Its legs are coated in protective mud, and the weight of this coating increases the force of its kicks. One kick, and a car is a pile of scrap!
Mudsdale’s running speed is not too swift, but it has excellent power and stamina. It can carry on for three days and three nights despite dragging loads of over 10 tons!
When Mudsdale gallops in earnest, the power of each hoof-clop can dig out huge holes, even in asphalt. Mudsdale is forbidden to run on some of Alola’s public roads.
Mudsdale can have the new Stamina Ability, an Ability that no other Pokémon has had before. With the Stamina Ability, this Pokémon’s Defense goes up by 1 when it’s hit by an attack.
Mimikyu adalah Pokémon tipe Ghost/Fairy dengan ability Disguise. Ability Disguise dapat menyelamatkan Mimikyu dari satu serangan musuh. Mimikyu adalah Pokémon kesepian sehingga ia menggunakan penutup berwujud Pikachu agar dapat mencari teman. Konon, siapapun yang melihat wujud asli Mimikyu di balik kain penutupnya akan dikutuk oleh penyakit misterius. Sejujurnya, saya rela sakit demi menemani Pokémon menggemaskan ini.
Mimikyu lives its life completely covered by its cloth and is always hidden. People believe that anybody who sees its true form beneath the cloth will be stricken with a mysterious illness. People in the Alola region are convinced that you must never try to peek beneath its covering. Mimikyu’s health fails when it’s bathed in the rays of the sun, so it prefers to stick to dark places. It’s rumored that the reason it covers itself with a cloth is to avoid sunlight.
The rising popularity of Pikachu-styled merchandise around 20 years ago is the reason that Mimikyu makes itself look like Pikachu. In fact, this Pokémon is dreadfully lonely, and it thought it would be able to make friends with humans if only it looked like Pikachu.
Mimikyu has the Disguise Ability, a new Ability that no Pokémon has ever before possessed. The Disguise Ability allows it to escape damage from an enemy’s attack just one time, and then its appearance changes.
Wimpod adalah Pokémon penakut dengan tipe Bug/Water dan ability Wimp Out (dat pun, tho). Dengan ability Wimp Out, Wimpod akan kabur (atau bertukar posisi dengan Pokémon lain saat bertarung) apabila HPnya menjadi kurang dari setengah. Wimpod memiliki kebiasaan membawa apapun yang ia temukan di tanah; karena kebiasaan tersebut, Wimpod biasa diburu oleh manusia dan Murkrow.
|CATEGORY||Turn Tail Pokémon|
Wimpod have a cowardly nature and are wary of noises and sudden movements. If you approach them in a group, they’ll immediately run off. When Wimpod feel threatened, they spit out a poisonous liquid. The stench of this toxic fluid signals others that danger is near. Despite their extreme cowardice, their curiosity leads Wimpod to approach people or Pokémon that are standing still.
Wimpod eat and store anything that they find fallen on the ground. They also scavenge any garbage that’s been dropped in the sea, so they’re highly valued as cleaners. They sometimes carry pearls or other valuable items, so humans or Pokémon like Murkrow may target them.
Wimpod has the new Wimp Out Ability, an Ability that no other Pokémon has had before. With the Wimp Out Ability, if this Pokémon’s HP drops below half in battle, it will run away or swap out for another Pokémon.
Selain enam Pokémon di atas, The Pokémon Company pun mengumumkan fitur baru Hyper Training dan fitur baru dalam Pokémon Global Link. Fitur Hyper Training memungkinkan Trainer untuk meningkatkan kekuatan Pokémon yang telah mencapai level 100. Hyper Training dilakukan oleh Mr. Hyper dengan bayaran tutup botol (yap, kalian tidak salah dengar).
Sementara itu, kini setiap Trainer dapat menyelenggarkan kompetisi online dan menjadi tuan rumah kompetisi tersebut. Fitur ini tentu saja dapat dimanfaatkan oleh komunitas Pokémon seperti PKMN-id untuk menyelenggarakan berbagai turnamen menarik.
Pokémon grow stronger by raising their levels and increasing their base stats. However, their power is still affected by the individual strengths innate to each Pokémon. Now, with Hyper Training, Pokémon that have grown to Lv. 100 will be able to increase their individual strengths, which has never been possible before.
With Hyper Training, you can increase the strength of the Lv. 100 Pokémon you’ve been adventuring with!
Hyper Training is done by Mr. Hyper—a man who loves to collect Bottle Caps. He can be found somewhere in the Alola region. If you bring him Bottle Caps, which you can obtain inPokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, you’ll be able to improve your Pokémon’s stats with Hyper Training.

With the release of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, the Pokémon Global Link—the website that connects Pokémon players around the world—will end its current Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y service and will be updated to work with Pokémon Sun andPokémon Moon.
