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.

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.
