Alola Region

Setelah mengumumkan Region Variant, Z-Moves, dan berbagai hal lainnya pada awal Agustus lalu, kali ini The Pokémon Company mengumumkan informasi baru yang berpusat pada evil team dalam Pokémon Sun/Moon.

TEAM SKULL

Team Skull logo

Evil team kali ini dinamakan Team Skull yang dipimpin oleh Guzma. Selain Guzma, teardapat sosok lain yang menjabat sebagai “Admin” yaitu Plumeria. Team Skull melakukan berbagai perbuatan jahat, mulai dari mencuri Pokémon orang lain, mengacaukan Island Challenge, dan lain sebagainya.

In the Alola region, a group of ruffians known as Team Skull causes a lot of trouble. They steal other people’s Pokémon, mess up the trial sites, and delight in all kinds of evil deeds.

Guzma is the boss of Team Skull who holds these ruffians together. Guzma pours on the attacks, battling without mercy. He certainly does seem strong, but he claims to be one of those who “never could become captains.” He seems to have a bone to pick with Professor Kukui, as well.

Plumeria is considered the big sister of Team Skull. She’s a tough lady who keeps Team Skull in line and working together—in the same way a strict older sister would. She seems to care for the Grunts who are below her in the pecking order, and she’s not one to let it go if someone’s given them a walloping.

Both male and female Team Skull Grunts wear matching black Skull Tanks. And these uniforms aren’t even provided for them—all Grunts have to buy their own!

Satu hal yang menarik, Guzma tampak mengenal Professor Kukui; dia menyapa Kukui dengan kalimat “Here we are, Kukui… Fellow rejects who never could become captains”. Dari kalimat tersebut, kemungkinan besar Kukui dan Guzma adalah salah satu calon Trial Captain di zamannya. Namun, nasib berkata lain sehingg mereka gagal menjadi Trial Captain dan memilih dua jalan kehidupan yang berbeda.

ABILITY Schooling

Wishiwashi adalah Pokémon unik berbentuk ikan dengan tipe Water. Wishiwashi memiliki ability Schooling yang dapat merubah wujudnya dari Solo Form menjadi School Form. Solo Form Wishiwashi memiliki ukuran kecil, namun saat berubah menjadi School Form, Wishiwashi menjadi besar dan mengerikan, bahkan sanggup membuat Gyarados lari ketakutan!

A single Wishiwashi is tiny and weak. Measuring just eight inches from nose to tail, Wishiwashi is very small—even for a Pokémon. Yet the people of the Alola region seem to view it as a terrifying Pokémon…

When it’s in danger, Wishiwashi’s glistening eyes catch the light and shine out, sending an SOS signal to its allies!

The seemingly weak Wishiwashi is called the demon of the sea because of its terrifying School Form! When Wishiwashi friends receive an SOS signal, they unite in this huge battle formation!

Wishiwashi that have encountered many dangerous situations and have a lot of experience calling on their allies will be able to emit a bright light from their eyes. They can gather allies and transform into an even more powerful Pokémon! Even Gyarados flee from Wishiwashi’s School Form!

Wishiwashi have a new Ability, Schooling, which no Pokémon has previously had. With Schooling, Wishiwashi can change form in battle to their School Form under certain conditions.

ALOLA FORM

Tak ketinggalan, terdapat tiga Pokémon dari Kanto yang memiliki Alola Form yaitu Meowth, Marowak, dan Raichu.

CATEGORY Scratch Cat Pokémon
TYPE Dark
HEIGHT 1’04”
WEIGHT 9.3 lbs.
ABILITY Pickup/Technician

Meowth Alola Form memiliki tipe Dark dengan ability Pickup/Technician. Awalnya, Meowth dibawa ke Alola untuk menemani para ningrat. Namun, ketika sistem kerajaan semakin hilang dari Alola, Meowth menjadi Pokémon biasa dan dapat ditemukan di tempat umum.

Meowth is a Pokémon that did not originally live in the Alola region. They were sent to the royal line as an offering from another region, and only a select few could have them as partners.

The Meowth in Alola are distinct for their cunning and their great pride. Two things they really hate—a wound to their pride and dirt on their coins. If either one happens, they fly into hysterics!

It’s said that the Meowth that were offered to the royal family lived a life of luxury and pampering, which led them to have a selfish and prideful attitude. This caused Meowth’s form to change.

The once-rare Alolan Meowth became feral when the monarchy was destroyed, and they have now become regular Pokémon, seen as commonly in the Alola region as elsewhere.

CATEGORY Bone Keeper Pokémon
TYPE Fire/Ghost
HEIGHT 3’03”
WEIGHT 75.0 lbs.
ABILITY Cursed Body / Lightning Rod

Marowak Alola Form memiliki tipe Fire/Ghost dengan ability Cursed Body/Lightning Rod. Marowak yang awalnya memiliki tipe Ground harus menjalani kehidupan yang sulit di Alola sehingga mereka berubah dan memiliki kekuatan indera ke-enam. Dengan menggosokkan tulang ke kepalanya, Marowak dapat menciptakan api sebagai senjata.

The Marowak in the Alola region take bones and light both ends on fire by rubbing them against their foreheads. Then they spin the bones around! Marowak’s rarity and its fearsome appearance when it dances with its bone led the people of Alola to dub it a conjurer and regard it with fear.

There are many Grass-type Pokémon—Marowak’s natural enemies—in the Alola region. This makes Alola a harsh environment for Cubone and Marowak. As a result, they live in close union with their partners. It’s said that their great care for their partners allowed them to gain something like a sixth sense and resulted in their changed form.

The Alolan Marowak proves skilled at an attack in which it waves its bone and releases a ball of flame. The fireballs are not that powerful, but they tirelessly pursue the foe!

CATEGORY Mouse Pokémon
TYPE Electric/Psychic
HEIGHT 2’04”
WEIGHT 46.3 lbs.
ABILITY Surge Surfer

Raichu Alola Form memiliki tipe Electrik/Psychic dengan ability Surge Surfer yang dapat meningkatkan kecepatannya dua kali saat kondisi Electric Terrain. Raichu Alola Form memiliki kumpulan kekuatan cenayang di bagian ekor dan dapat menaikinya untuk terbang di udara.

The Raichu in Alola have two types—Electric and Psychic—and they are able to wield psychic power. What’s more, they can gather their psychic power in their tails and then ride on them to float in the air!

Even Pokémon researchers don’t know why Raichu’s form changed in the Alola region. The people of Alola seem unconcerned by the question. Their guess: maybe it ate too many sweet and fluffy round pancakes!

Raichu has electric sacs on its cheeks, and rubbing them causes a sweet aroma to be released. The mechanism behind this is not clear, but it’s thought to be connected to the psychic power that Alolan Raichu possess.

The Alolan Raichu has a new Ability, Surge Surfer, which no other Pokémon has previously had. With the Surge Surfer Ability, the Pokémon’s Speed will be doubled on Electric Terrain.

Yep, Team Skull tampak memiliki konsep unik dengan kisah yang masih penuh misteri. Dari tiga Alola Form yang diperkenalkan, saya tertarik dengan Raichu karena memiliki paduan tipe yang unik.

Pokémon Sun & Moon akan diluncurkan pada tanggal 18 November 2016 dil wilayah Amerika Serikat dan Jepang, eksklusif untuk Nintendo 3DS.
