2 min read


Pokemon! Gotta catch ‘em all! Pocket Monsters this year is following in the footsteps of 2013’s Pokemon X and Y, by refreshing the franchise with a brand new visual style. More mature characters, more vibrant landscapes and compeltely retooled user interfaces to make for a more seamless experience, says Pokemon Sun and Moon director Junichi Masuda.

And of course, brand new Pokémon to catch. At least one new pocket monster has been shown so far during the stream. Say hello to Yungoos, a toothy new fella that you’ll be able to catch.


Here’s the official art for Yungoos:

And another new Pokemon! I’m going to call him Woody, but his official name is Pipipek:

A new mode was also shown off, a free-for-all battle against three other trainers. Winners in Battle Royals are decided on how many of your own pocket monsters you have at the end of a match, compared to how many people you’ve defeated.

Update: Another wild Pokémon appears! This here is Grubbin, a Bug-type pokémon:

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
