Saat pembukaan acara Pokémon World Championship 2016 tadi malam, The Pokémon Company memperlihatkan video baru yang memperkenalkan empat Pokémon dari Alola. Keempat Pokémon tersebut adalah Crabrawler, Sandygast, Palossand, dan Stufful.


CATEGORY Boxing Pokémon
TYPE Fighting
HEIGHT 2’00”
WEIGHT 15.4 lbs.
ABILITY Hyper Cutter / Iron Fist

Crabrawler has a personality that really hates to lose, and it’s driven not only to aim for a higher position than its fellows in terms of social standing, but literally to aim for a higher position in the landscape. Perhaps as a result, it’s sometimes found clinging to tall people or to the walls of buildings! If you try to remove one against its will, you’ll be met with a sound punch.

Crabrawler’s favorite food is Berries. It punches the trunks of trees to give the branches a good shake and knock any ripe Berries to the ground so it can feast! Many Crabrawler may gather around a tree, but only the one that emerges victorious in battle against all the others receives the privilege of eating the ripe Berries.

Crabrawler uses its claws to protect its face and belly while getting in close to an opponent to throw punches. Its punches are powerful enough to split tree trunks! Crabrawler’s pincers are sometimes torn off during its bouts—and they are said to be delicious.

Crabrawler adalah Pokémon petinju berwujud kepiting.  Crabrawler memiliki tipe Fighting dan ability Hyper Cutter/Iron Fist. Dengan ability Hyper Cutter, stat ATK Crabrawler tidak dapat diturunkan sementara Iron Fist dapat meningkatkan serangan yang berjenis pukulan.

CATEGORY Sand Heap Pokémon
TYPE Ghost/Ground
HEIGHT 1’08”
WEIGHT 154.3 lbs.
ABILITY Water Compaction
CATEGORY Sand Castle Pokémon
TYPE Ghost/Ground
HEIGHT 4’03”
WEIGHT 551.2 lbs.
ABILITIES Water Compaction

A Sandygast emerges when the grudges of Pokémon and other creatures soak into the sand after they fall in battle. In essence, it’s a possessed lump of sand!

If you heedlessly grab a Sandygast’s shovel, you’ll fall under the Pokémon’s control. A Sandygast uses its power to manipulate children into gathering sand to increase the size of its body. If a Sandygast loses its shovel, it may put up a tree branch, a flag, or another item in its place. These Sandygast are wanderers in search of their own shovels.

The tunnel-like mouth of a Sandygast can suck the vitality from people and Pokémon. Apparently it’s a test of courage in the Alola region to put your hand in a Sandygast’s mouth.

Sandygast has the new Water Compaction Ability, an Ability that no previous Pokémon has had. With Water Compaction, its Defense stat will go up by 2 if it’s hit with a Water-type move.

Palossand controls human adults, making them build a sand castle that provides camouflage and also raises its defensive abilities. Unlike Sandygast, if Palossand loses some of the sand from its body, it can restore itself on its own. When moving about in search of prey, the shovel on top of Palossand’s head revolves. It’s said that the shovel could be serving as some kind of radar.

Sandygast dan Palossan adalah Pokémon berwujud mirip istana pasir yang biasa dibuat di pantai. Keduanya memiliki tipe Ghost/Ground dengan ability Water Compaction. Dengan ability tersebut, Sandygast dan Palossand dapat meningkatkan stat DEF apabila diserang oleh serangan bertipe Water.

CATEGORY Flailing Pokémon
TYPE Normal/Fighting
HEIGHT 1’08”
WEIGHT 15.0 lbs.
ABILITIES Fluffy/Klutz

Stufful’s cute appearance and movements—plus the fluffy feel of its fur—all combine to make it super popular!

This Pokémon may have a small body, but its strength is extraordinary. Receiving one of its powerful hits without being prepared for it can bring down even well-trained Pokémon!

Stufful adalah Pokémon berwujud boneka beruang yang dapat berevolusi menjadi Bewear. Layaknya Bewear, Stufful memiliki tipe Normal/Fighting dengan ability Fluffy/Klutz. Dengan ability Fluffy, Stufful dapat mengurangi setengah serangan (yang menyentuh) dari musuh namun menjadi lemah dengan serangan tipe Fire.


Pokémon Sun & Moon merupakan generasi ke-7 dari video game seri Pokémon. Pokémon Sun & Moon akan diluncurkan pada tanggal 18 November 2016 di Jepang dan Amerika Serikat.
