Cutiefly, Charjabug, Vikavolt, Drampa, Togedemaru, Bruxish, and Tapu Koko Revealed!

An anonymous source appears to have leaked videos of seven new Sun and Moon Pokemon – Cutiefly, Charjabug, Vikavolt, Drampa, Togedemaru, Bruxish, and Tapu Koko. The leaks have spread all over the Internet now, so we can no longer ignore them.

The videos depict fully animated Pokemon with attack animations that look completely real. It’s unknown where the videos originate from, but all of them begin with Russian video game ratings, so it’s possible the person who leaked them works with Pokemon or Nintendo’s Russian division. The person may have also been able to download the videos from an official source that uploaded them early.

It’s possible these Pokemon will be revealed on July 1st, as that’s when the next wave of Sun and Moon information is coming.

Update: Official Trailer!

The official Japanese Pokemon YouTube channel has now posted an official trailer, confirming the leaks are real.

Cutiefly

Appears to be a Bug-type Pokemon. Possibly based on a fly or a bee? Or a bee fly?

Update: It’s Bug / Fairy. It uses Fairy Wind.

Charjabug

Appears to be a Bug and Electric-type Pokemon. Likely the next evolution of Grubbin, which is a Bug-type Pokemon that loves electricity — it’s possibly the middle “cocoon” stage of this generation. It charges at Popplio with a physical Electric-type attack. Its name seems to imply that it charges at a Pokemon physically (as with the attack) and that it’s also “charged” like a battery. It may evolve into the next Pokemon.

Update: Confirmed Bug / Electric. Confirmed to evolve into Vikavolt, as thought. The attack it uses below is Spark.

Vikavolt

This appears to be a Bug-type, though its name implies it’s also an Electric-type. It may be Charjabug’s evolution and the final evolution of Grubbin due to the electric theme. It floats in the air with its wings.

Update: Confirmed Bug / Electric. It uses Thunder Wave.

Drampa

Likely a Dragon-type. Reminds all of us of something, doesn’t it? What’s that one ’80s movie?

Update: It’s Normal / Dragon. It has a new Ability called Frenzy, which raises its Special Attack. It uses Dragon Breath.

Togedemaru

Obviously Electric. This appears to be the Pikachu clone of Generation VII, as with Pichu, Plusle and Minun, Pachirisu, Emolga, and Dedenne. Like those Pokemon, it keeps its Japanese name, which further seems to support my theory. It can stick out those triangle shapes on its body like spikes, as you can see in the fifth screenshot.

Update: It’s Electric / Steel. Its Ability is Lightning Rod. It uses Discharge.

Bruxish

It’s a fish, so it’s likely a Water-type. It uses Psywave, which means it may also be Psychic (plus it’s purple). So Water / Psychic? Its Ability is revealed in the video as “Dazzling,” which stops Pikachu from using Quick Attack. Perhaps it stops priority moves?

Update: It’s Water / Psychic. When the purple fin thing on its head opens up, it resembles a flower. In the video it was also seen stopping Fake Out, so its Ability does seem to stop priority moves.

Tapu Koko

Not sure what type this one is – maybe Psychic? It floats in the air, and it crushes Litten with some kind of magical-looking attack. This Pokemon’s name was specifically mentioned in the E3 gameplay for the games – it’s apparently the guardian Pokemon of Alola’s first island. Could it be a Legendary Pokemon? It’s also notable in that it has a space in its name, which very few Pokemon do.

Update: It’s Electric / Fairy. The new move it uses in the screenshots below and in the official video is called “Nature’s Wrath.” Its Ability is “Elekimaker,” which turns the field into Electric Terrain.

    Quite decent Pokémon this time:

    - I really like Drampa; reminds me of "Falkor"/"Fuchur", the Luck Dragon for The Neverending Story! :rolleyes: And I have been waiting for a Normal/Dragon type for quite some time now.

    - I was wondering what would be this Gen's Rodent PikaClone. Togedemaru is apparently based on porcupine. I was hoping for something like that, but didn't expect Electric/Steel...! :eek: No English name? Guess that it's ok...!

    - Tapu Koko is my favourite this time. Like the dual typing, Electric/Fairy, too.

    - Charjabug/Vikavolt is ok, but they probably won't end on my E4 Team.

    - Cutiefly is cute, and I really like the dual typing.

    Which one of these are the Japanese names and which ones are the English names? Are all of them the Japanese names?

    My favorite out of all of these Vikavolt, it looks pretty intimidating and kind of cool. I see Cutiefly and I see the face of Fletchling there.

    The Pika Clone looks like it wanted to be an evolution of Dedenne, but it's going to be it's own, standalone Pokemon...

    I think that Tapu koko is the guardian Pokémon of the island you start on, but you can't catch it until later on.

    These are all the English names, Bulbapedia lists the Japanese names since the English ones aren't "offically" revealed.

    The only Pokemon who's name is the same as in Japan is Togedemaru I believe. I think Tapu Koko is more or less the same in Japanese too.

    A tradition. They've done it every generation, and haven't shown signs of letting up.

    I hope Tapu Koko's ability heralds more usefulness for terrains (weather ball equivalents, combos, etc.).

    Yeah Tapu Koko and Togedemaru (I hate that name it's too long and clunky) are the same in both

    This trailer confirms that I'm catching a Grubbin. I love the evolutions! Also, Bruxishes face looks like a face you put on a totem pole.
    EDIT: Drampa kind of looks like a Dunsparce evolution!

    I agree on Togedemaru, I wish it's name would be a little simpler; but what can you do?

    Bruxish is (aptly) ugly af but I love how it and Tapu Koko reflect the island/indigenous theme. Great designs. The name Cutiefly makes me want to die (in a good way)!

    So I guess the prefix/kanji (I don't fully know what I'm talking about bear with me) 'toge-' has something to do with roundness. And '-maru' is boy ja? Could Togedemaru be -- ROUNDBOY??

    Wowowowowowowow!

    I have to say I am thoroughly impressed thus far with the new pokemon. Their designs just seem to work, especially within the context of the region. I'm loving all the bugs. Vikavolt is awesome and may perhaps find a spot on my team.

    I also love Tapu Koko and how it looks like a tribal mask. Very awesome design. Drampa is also awesome, and love Cutiefly!

    Togedemaru is the only one I'm iffy on, but that's because I'm not a fan of pika-clones. I do love the steel typing though, so that's a great positive.

    Bruxish isn't bad either, but generic fish pokemon are so overdone at this point.

    This leads me to wonder, which of these reveals do we think will get evolutions? Drampa? Bruxish? Togedemaru? Cutiefly? There's a whole slew of possibilities with these.

    So very excited for what we've been seeing so far!!!
