More Zeraora Details Revealed!

More details about Zeraora have been revealed by TPCi that were not evident by Zeraora’s Pokedex entries from Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.

Zeraora is an Electric-type Pokémon that gathers electric energy from outside sources, emitting strong electrical currents from the pads on its hands and feet to create a powerful magnetic field. Zeraora uses this magnetic field to levitate and move through the air with extreme speed.

This Mythical Pokémon is said to be so fast that its maximum speed is the same as that of lightning strikes. When using massive amounts of electric energy for a powerful attack, Zeraora’s fur stands on end all over its body!

Name: Zeraora
Category: Thunderclap Pokémon
Height: 4’11”
Weight: 98.1 lb.
Type: Electric

Ultra Sun: It electrifies its claws and tears its opponents apart with them. Even if they dodge its attack, they’ll be electrocuted by the flying sparks.

Ultra Moon: It approaches its enemies at the speed of lightning, then tears them limb from limb with its sharp claws.

It seems likely that Japan’s unnamed SM7a set will feature Zeraora since it releases in July, the same month the 21st movie releases. The movie will feature Zeraora and Lugia, so we could get a Lugia-GX and Zeraora-GX in the set.

    Great to have "ZeraORA ORA ORAA!" out of the window, so that now the later "Pokenews" will probably be about Pokemon Switch.

    (Zeer-uh-oar-uh). First two syllables is as you would say Zero only with an "a" at the end with an "uh" sound.

    I think you forgot a little piece of info.

    It has the signature move called Plasma Fists which is an Ion Deluge but as an attack.

    So SM7a featuring Zeraora... Assuming that also counts as the "Unova Set" (due to Genesect and Virizion), maybe we're getting a "Johto Set" for SM8? Probably with a Lugia-GX, since we already got Ho-Oh-GX.

    Which would probably result in our November set being a movie-thematic one... I could get behind that! :D

    Can't wait... If SM7 is Unova themed (based off of genesect and virizion, like starg09 said), this'll be awesome! Lugia GX, Genesect GX, Virizion GX, and other awesome GXs, like Zeroara... This set I'm REALLY excited about!

    The Expansion sets (+, a, or b) usually aren't based off of a region, so it wouldn't make sense for it to be a Unova set. I assume it'll be put into Sm8 in the west due to the November Ho-oh and Lugia distribution and the Lugia movie. Also, Dragon Storm had Reshiram, Zekrom, Kyurem and White Kyurem. So we don't need more of those mons so quickly.

    1. Verlisify is an awful person, so no I don't pay attention to him.
    2. Pual Ryan has said that the wording on the merchandise doesn't hint to a new Eeveelution (and he's the guy who reports on all of the merchandise)

    I'm still assuming it's pronounced "ze-row-ra" breaking it up into 4 syllables is just unpleasant to the ears. Plus the row-ra part is relatively homophonous with how big cats sound so it can say its name and sound relatively feline at the same time.

    Everyone predicted a new Lycanroc form. Pretty sure Paul Ryan (the source where he get merch info from) had the same prediction (don't quote me, but I'm pretty sure he said it was coming.)

    "Zeraora uses this magnetic field to levitate and move through the air with extreme speed."

    Wait, wait wait wait wait, wait a sec.

    *Researches* *Zeraora; Ability: Volt Absorb*

    ...I am so mad this fella doesn't have Levitate as an ability.

    The internet community has exploded as well. It's only fitting for Pokemon to spend less on marketing when they (now) can do it themselves with a more "hype" way.

    The magazines were huge source of information before this current digital and social media age. I guess the change that technology brings leaves the "old school" really behind. As for me, I still love looking at magazines for information. There's something about them that I enjoy.
