It’s not all about Zelda today for Nintendo. This morning, to start off their E3 event, the company revealed three new pokémon that will appear in Pokémon Sun and Moon.
Pikipek, the Woodpecker Pokémon, is a Normal/Flying-type with the abilities Keen Eye/Skill Link.
Yungoos, the Loitering Pokémon, is a Normal-type that has the abilities Stakeout/Strong Jaw.
The last new pokémon is Grubbin, the Larva Pokémon is a Bug-type with the ability Swarm.
Nintendo also gave us a look at the new Battle Royal mode that will debut in the upcoming games. The Pokémon Sun and Moon website provides a brief description of how the mode will work:
“Each of the four Trainers chooses three Pokémon and sends one Pokémon into battle at a time. The battle is over at the end of any turn when all of the Pokémon of one Trainer have fainted. The players are ranked, and a victor is declared based on the number of Pokémon each defeated and the number of Pokémon each has remaining in play.”
Pokémon Sun and Moon are scheduled to launch on November 18 for most of the world and on November 23 in Europe.No comments

In related Sun and Moon news, the official Pokémon YouTube channel released a new video showing off Legendary Pokémon Zygarde’s 10% Forme and Complete Forme, both of which will debut in the upcoming pair of games.

North American Pokémon trainers will have to jump through a few hoops in order to get the Mythical Pokémon Mew if they missed out on last February’s distribution event. People in Europe, on the other hand, will have a considerably easier time. All they have to do is enter the serial code “MEW2016” in their copy of Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Omega Ruby, X or Y before June 30.
Players will not be able to redeem the code for a second Mew if they already received the pokémon earlier this year.

Nintendo and The Pokémon Company are giving a second chance to trainers who missed out on getting the Mythical Pokémon Mew last February. Anyone who signs up or is already signed up to receive the Pokémon Trainer Club newsletter will receive a free Mew code in the newsletter for June.
There are some important things to note. The deadline to sign up and receive the code is June 1. Also, if you have already received the Mew given away at GameStop stores earlier this year, you will not be able to get this one as this one is the same pokémon.
