Two New Pokémon Revealed in The Latest Issue of CoroCoro

July 12th, 2016 | Category: Uncategorized

Pokemon Kiteruguma Mimikkyu

Leaks from the latest issue of the Japanese magazine CoroCoro show two new pokémon set to make their debut in Pokémon Sun and Moon.

Kiteruguma is a dangerously strong Normal/Fighting dual-type that likes to hug trainers. It has the abilities Fluffy and Klutz.

Mimikkyu is a Ghost/Fairy-type that covers itself in cloth resembling Pikachu, hoping to be loved as much as the series icon. Another reason it keeps itself covered is because it dislikes sunlight. It is rumored that anyone that tries to remove Mimikkyu’s cover falls prey to a mysterious illness. It has the ability Disguise.
