CATEGORY Synthetic Pokémon
TYPE Normal
HEIGHT 7’07”
WEIGHT 221.6 lbs.
ABILITY RKS System

When Type: Null gains a partner it can trust, it deliberately destroys the restraining device it wears. Once released from that heavy mask, the Pokémon’s speed increases substantially. Freed of the restraining effects of its mask, Silvally’s senses are heightened, and it reverts to its natural temperament. It has a wild nature, but it will obey a Trainer that it trusts. And to protect that Trainer from danger, it will put its own life on the line. Silvally is said to have been created to oppose a threat…

By inserting exclusive items into the drive on Silvally’s head, its RKS System can be activated, causing Silvally’s somatic cells to mutate and glow. The RKS System enables it to change its type, and its cells glow with different colors of light, depending on its type.

Silvally’s Ability is called the RKS System Ability, which no previous Pokémon has ever had. By having Silvally hold items that correspond to each Pokémon type, it can change its own type. Multi-Attack is a move that only Silvally can learn, and this move’s type changes based on which type-related item Silvally is holding.

Gladion dan Silvally

Silvally adalah evolusi dari Type: Null yang diumumkan pada awal September lalu. Sylvally memiliki ability RKS System yang dapat mengganti tipe dirinya dan tipe serangan Multi-Attack sesuai dengan item yang digunakan. Ability RKS System dan item yang digunakan sangat mirip dengan ability Multitype dan item Plate dari Arceus; hal ini semakin menguatkan spekulasi bahwa Type: Null dan Sylvally diciptakan untuk meniru sang “dewa” dalam dunia Pokémon (oh iya, RKS dibaca “ar-kei-es”, mirip dengan pelafalan nama Arceus). Silvally berubah setelah Type: Null memercayai seorang Trainer dan menghancurkan topeng yang digunakan untuk mengendalikan kekuatannya.

CATEGORY Scaly Pokémon
TYPE Dragon/Fighting
HEIGHT 3’11”
WEIGHT 103.6 lbs.
ABILITY Bulletproof/Soundproof

TYPE Dragon/Fighting
HEIGHT 5’03”

ABILITY Bulletproof/Soundproof

When a Jangmo-o evolves into Hakamo-o, it breaks from its fellows and begins to live on its own to train itself. Wherever it can find Pokémon to battle against, it seems to appear.

Hakamo-o dances before battle to show its strength, clanging its scales together to make them ring out. When this dance reaches its climax, Hakamo-o bellows a fierce war cry to challenge its opponent.

Its scales make for fine armor, so Hakamo-o doesn’t worry about self-defense as it makes multitudes of strikes and overwhelms its opponents. But, as a result, its scales often become damaged and get torn off. They grow back immediately, so this does not cause Hakamo-o undue concern. In fact, it views the number of lost scales as proof of how ferociously it has fought, and it brandishes its bared arms in a boast of victory.

At the end of its harsh training, Hakamo-o evolves into this overwhelmingly powerful form. It returns to the land of its birth, where it watches over the Jangmo-o from a distance.

There is a legend that says Kommo-o is covered in glittering scales in order to drive away a great darkness covering the world. The reason these Pokémon seek out battle is to gain the power needed to defeat this darkness. When it detects someone approaching, this Pokémon rings the scales on its tail to announce its presence. It has no desire to battle against weak Pokémon.

Kommo-o’s greatest move is the uppercut. It swings its arm up from below in a punch of great skill and force, sending its foe flying into the sky. By raising its arms aloft, it can generate a force powerful enough to change the face of the surrounding landscape!

Clanging Scales is a move that only Kommo-o can learn. It scrapes the scales covering its body against one another, attacking with a great clamor. After using this move, Kommo-o’s Defense is lowered.

Hakamo-o dan Kommo-o adalah evolusi dari Jangmo-o. Keduanya memiliki tipe Dragon/Fighting yang belum pernah ada sebelumnya dan ability Bulletproof/Soundproof (berarti, dia tidak perlu khawatir akan serangan Hyper Voice, terutama dari Mega Gardevoir) layaknya Jangmo-o. Kommo-o memiliki serangan khas yang bernama Claning Scales. Jika melihat tipe dan tingkatan evolusinya, kemungkinan Kommo-o merupakan Pokémon pseudo legendary dengan total stats mencapai 600.

CATEGORY Fruit Pokémon
TYPE Grass
HEIGHT 2’04”
WEIGHT 18.1 lbs.
ABILITY Leaf Guard / Oblivious
CATEGORY Fruit Pokémon
TYPE Grass
HEIGHT 3’11”
WEIGHT 47.2 lbs.
ABILITY Leaf Guard / Queenly Majesty

The calyx on Steenee’s head is harder than Bounsweet’s, so Steenee no longer worries about being stabbed by other Pokémon. As Bounsweet, this Pokémon may have preferred to run away from others, but now Steenee and other Pokémon can play together.

Upon evolving, this Pokémon’s fragrance becomes even more delectable, but it also gains a tomboy-like personality. Living together with one is quite the ordeal. As it moves around, it spins its calyx, striking nearby objects, but Steenee couldn’t care less.

Steenee unleashes combo moves using the calyx on its head and its hard legs. First it smacks opponents with the calyx on its head, and when the opponent flinches, it lands a whacking great kick. That usually does the trick!

 

Tsareena has the nature of high-class nobility. Any Pokémon or human that approaches it with evil in mind will be punished forthwith. It even turns its fearsome glare upon its own Trainer if the two of them are not fully in sync, or if its Trainer orders it to use a move that will be ineffective. Only the strongest of Steenee are able to evolve. When this happens, the Steenee evolves with the blessing of other Steenee. It then uses its strength to protect the Bounsweet.

Tsareena is a high-kicking virtuoso. It has honed these skills beyond the level it achieved as a Steenee, and it attacks with graceful movements. At the same time, its fragrance mesmerizes its opponents, dealing them a secondary attack. Trop Kick is a move that only Tsareena can learn. It lowers an opponent’s Attack by showering it with blazing hot kicks in a style similar to that originating from tropical countries. It’s said that this Pokémon loses its strength if touched on the crown-like protuberance on its head.

Some Tsareena have the Queenly Majesty Ability, which no other Pokémon has previously had. The effects of Queenly Majesty are so intimidating that it prevents opponents from using priority moves.

Steenee dan Tsareena adalah evolusi dari Bounsweet. Keduanya memiliki tipe Grass dan ability Leaf Guard. Tsareena dapat memiliki ability lain yang bernama Queen Majesty; dengan ability tersebut, Tsareena dapat menghentikan serangan musuh yang memiliki priority tinggi. Jika melihat tingkat evolusi dan namanya, kemungkinan Bounsweet, Steenee, dan Tsareena adalah Pokémon yang hanya berjenis kelamin perempuan, mirip dengan Lilligant dari generasi lima.

CATEGORY Bee Fly Pokémon
TYPE Bug/Fairy
HEIGHT 0’08”
WEIGHT 1.1 lbs.
ABILITY Honey Gather / Shield Dust

Ribombee collect flower nectar and pollen to make into balls known as Pollen Puffs. These serve as food, and what’s more, they also can cause effects like paralysis or dizziness. Ribombee may use puffs to strike their opponents during battles. Some of the Pollen Puffs that Ribombee make also have relaxing effects or can relieve tiredness. These are distributed around the Alola region as high-priced supplements.

Ribombee hate getting rained on. They’re covered with fluffy hairs that hold the pollen they’ve gathered, and the rain makes them wet and dirty. Alolan people know that if Ribombee are busily visiting the fields of flowers, you can be sure that the fair weather will continue.

Rimbombee adalah evolusi Cutiefly. Pokémon imut bertipe Bug/Fairy dengan ability Honey Gather/Shield Dust ini membenci hujan karena dapat merusak serbuk sari yang dia kumpulkan dari tumbuhan berbunga.

Grimer dan Muk Alola Form

ABILITY Poison Touch / Gluttony

ABILITY Poison Touch / Gluttony

When the population of the Alola region increased, dealing with their garbage became a serious problem. As a solution, Grimer were imported from other regions. They fed primarily on garbage, so their body composition changed—as did their form. What appear to be teeth in this Pokémon’s mouth are in fact residual toxins from the garbage it eats, which have hardened and crystallized. No method has been discovered to break down these crystals. Direct contact with them presents a danger.

Alolan Grimer is always eating garbage, but its constant hunger will cause it to begin eating other manufactured objects if it runs out of garbage to feed on. There are more than a hundred Alolan Grimer in Alola’s garbage-processing plants, and all of the garbage produced in the Alola region is taken for use as their food.

Alolan Muk eats whatever is in reach without pausing, and if it feels the sharp pangs of hunger, it runs amuck. It’s thought that its voracious appetite stems from an inability to maintain its energy levels without a constant influx of toxins. Toxins have accumulated in Alolan Muk’s body from its steady diet of various waste products and manufactured materials. This accumulation has brought about a chemical change, producing a new kind of toxin.

Alolan Muk has the same poisonous crystals as Alolan Grimer, but they’re not limited to its mouth—they extend from all over the surface of its body. Alolan Muk uses them to attack, just like other Pokémon use their fangs or claws. And these highly toxic crystals are easily knocked loose, making them extraordinarily dangerous!

The Grimer and Muk in the Alola region produce and store their toxins within their bodies. So, unlike the Grimer and Muk in other regions, you won’t detect any unpleasant aromas when you draw near one.

Kali ini giliran Grimer dan Muk yang memiliki Alola Form. Keduanya memiliki tipe Poison/Dark dan ability Poison Touch/Gluttony. Grimer dan Muk didatangkan dari wilayah lain untuk mengatasi masalah sampah yang muncul di Alola. Keduanya memakan berbagai macam sampah dan akhirnya berubah wujud. Benda putih mirip gigi yang ada di mulut Grimer dan Muk adalah sisa-sisa sampah yang mereka makan dan telah mengeras.
