New Pokémon Revealed At Worlds!

PAt the 2016 Pokémon World Championships today, The Pokémon Company International gave its passionate fans a first look at new Pokémon coming to the highly anticipated Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon video games.

The newly revealed Alola region Pokémon include:

Name: Crabrawler


Type: Fighting

Crabrawler is a Boxing Pokémon that really hates to lose. It can be found clinging to buildings with its powerful pincers that also pack a powerful punch, or gathering around trees in search of Berries, its favourite food.

The following Alola Region Pokémon were also recently revealed:

Name: Stufful


Type: Normal/Fighting

Stufful may have a small body, but this Pokémon has extraordinary strength. Despite its cute, fluffy appearance, Stufful dislikes being touched and will flail its arms in protest. Stufful evolves into Bewear.

Name: Sandygast


Type: Ghost/Ground

Sandygast emerges when the grudges of fallen Pokémon soak into the sand after battle, and its tunnel-like mouth can suck the vitality from people and Pokémon. Sandygast also features a new Water Compaction Ability, never before seen in other Pokémon, where its Defense stat goes up by two if it’s hit with a Water-type move. Sandygast evolves into Palossand.

Name: Palossand


Type: Ghost/Ground

Palossand disguises itself as a sandcastle, with its shovel on top serving, it is believed, as a radar to search out prey. Unsuspecting small Pokémon are dragged into Palossand’s body through its sandy vortex so it can steal their life force.
