Bounsweet, Bewear, Comfey, Mudsdale, Mimikyu, Wimpod!

Wimpod, Bounsweet, Comfey, Mudsdale, Bewear, and Mimikyu from Pokemon Sun and Moon have been revealed, as have new Pokemon Global Link features and a new Hyper Training mode!

Bounsweet

BounsweetFruit Pokemon
Type: Grass
Height: 1′00″
Weight: 7.1 lbs.
Ability: Leaf Guard / Oblivious

Because it exudes a delicious smell from its entire body, Bounsweet is popular with Pokemon and people of the Alola region. Bounsweet’s scent has a calming effect on humans, so many people let them live inside their homes as a sort of air freshener. Unfortunately, it’s sometimes swallowed whole by Pokemon drawn to its aroma.

When running away from other Pokemon, Bounsweet flees danger by skipping along the ground. Since its bouncy movements don’t convey to others that it’s actually in desperate flight, no one ever comes to its aid.

When attacked by enemies, it drives them off by rotating the calyx on its head. The downside is how dizzy it gets afterward!

Bewear

BewearStrong Arm Pokemon
Type: Normal/Fighting
Height: 6’11”
Weight: 297.6 lbs.
Ability: Fluffy/Klutz

When Bewear is acting in a friendly fashion, just swinging its arms around, you must never dare to approach it carelessly. It is acknowledged to be a dangerous Pokemon, even within the Alola region. You may see warning signs posted near places it resides.

When Bewear grows fond of its Trainer, it may show that feeling in a fond embrace—but the force of that hug is tremendous! Trainers must teach these Pokemon how to restrain their strength when showing affection.

Bewear may have the Fluffy Ability, a new Ability that no Pokemon has ever possessed before. The Fluffy Ability halves the damage taken from attacks that make direct contact, but in return it also doubles the damage taken from Fire-type moves.

Some wild Bewear use amazing martial-arts moves. Apparently the Pokemon learn these moves by watching Black Belts practicing when they go out to train in the woods.

Bewear’s arms and legs are strong and highly developed. Its powerful spine enables it to lift objects weighing a ton or more. It loves to give crushing bear hugs—a tight hug from this Pokemon’s arms will split anything at all in two!

Comfey

ComfeyPosy Picker Pokemon
Type: Fairy
Height: 0′4″
Weight: 0.7 lbs.
Ability: Flower Veil / Triage

Comfey picks flowers and always carries them around. It makes a ring of blossoms and spreads oil from its body on it, which changes the flowers so they emit a soothing fragrance. It has a habit of giving these flower rings to those it’s fond of. The aroma can soothe both itself and its allies. Comfey also helps with the treatment of people and Pokemon at Pokémon Centers and hospitals, thanks to its aroma.

When attacked by other Pokemon, it throws its flowers at them to create an opening, and then it either flees or strikes back.

Comfey can have the new Triage Ability, an Ability that no other Pokemon has had before. With the Triage Ability, this Pokemon’s restorative moves gain the highest priority in battle.

Mudsdale

MudsdaleDraft Horse Pokemon
Type: Ground
Height: 8′02″
Weight: 2028.3 lbs.
Ability: Own Tempo / Stamina

Mudsdale is known for its powerful body as well as its emotional fortitude, which keeps it from being agitated by anything. It never cries out, no matter what kind of trouble it’s in, and it defeats its opponents with a single powerful blow. Its legs are coated in protective mud, and the weight of this coating increases the force of its kicks. One kick, and a car is a pile of scrap!

Mudsdale’s running speed is not too swift, but it has excellent power and stamina. It can carry on for three days and three nights despite dragging loads of over 10 tons!

When Mudsdale gallops in earnest, the power of each hoof-clop can dig out huge holes, even in asphalt. Mudsdale is forbidden to run on some of Alola’s public roads.

Mudsdale can have the new Stamina Ability, an Ability that no other Pokemon has had before. With the Stamina Ability, this Pokemon’s Defense goes up by 1 when it’s hit by an attack.

Mimikyu

MimikyuDisguise Pokemon
Type: Ghost/Fairy
Height: 0’08”
Weight: 1.5 lbs.
Ability: Disguise

Mimikyu lives its life completely covered by its cloth and is always hidden. People believe that anybody who sees its true form beneath the cloth will be stricken with a mysterious illness. People in the Alola region are convinced that you must never try to peek beneath its covering. Mimikyu’s health fails when it’s bathed in the rays of the sun, so it prefers to stick to dark places. It’s rumored that the reason it covers itself with a cloth is to avoid sunlight.

The rising popularity of Pikachu-styled merchandise around 20 years ago is the reason that Mimikyu makes itself look like Pikachu. In fact, this Pokemon is dreadfully lonely, and it thought it would be able to make friends with humans if only it looked like Pikachu.

Mimikyu has the Disguise Ability, a new Ability that no Pokemon has ever before possessed. The Disguise Ability allows it to escape damage from an enemy’s attack just one time, and then its appearance changes.

Wimpod

WimpodTurn Tail Pokemon
Type: Bug/Water
Height: 1′08″
Weight: 26.5 lbs.
Ability: Wimp Out

Wimpod have a cowardly nature and are wary of noises and sudden movements. If you approach them in a group, they’ll immediately run off. When Wimpod feel threatened, they spit out a poisonous liquid. The stench of this toxic fluid signals others that danger is near. Despite their extreme cowardice, their curiosity leads Wimpod to approach people or Pokemon that are standing still.

Wimpod eat and store anything that they find fallen on the ground. They also scavenge any garbage that’s been dropped in the sea, so they’re highly valued as cleaners. They sometimes carry pearls or other valuable items, so humans or Pokemon like Murkrow may target them.

Wimpod has the new Wimp Out Ability, an Ability that no other Pokemon has had before. With the Wimp Out Ability, if this Pokémon’s HP drops below half in battle, it will run away or swap out for another Pokemon.

New Pokemon Global Link ‘Friendly Competition’ Features

New features are coming to Pokemon Global Link, a website that connects players around the world who are enjoying the Pokemon series. Pokemon Global Link will be ending its current Pokemon Omega Ruby, Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, Pokemon X, and Pokemon Y service and will be updated to make it compatible with Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. The new update will introduce Friendly Competitions, a new function which has been created to allow players to become competition hosts and host their own original competitions where they can set the regulations. Two types of Friendly Competition will be available, Online and Live:

Online Competitions – These are competitions which are played over the internet. Players will be matched with an opponent and compete against each other for the best rating. These competitions can be open to Pokemon Trainers all over the world, or they can be set to only allow pre-approved Trainers to enter.

Live Competitions – These competitions allow players to host a competition and play together with friends and other Trainers who are in the same space. The Digital Player ID that contains competition regulations is generated as a QR Code, and by scanning the QR code into a 3DS system, participants can join and battle according to the set regulations.

Friendly Competition Friendly Competition 2

Hyper Training / Magearna Distribution with “Bottle Caps” Item

MagearnaAlso announced is the new Hyper Training function which can be used to increase Pokemon’s power. Traditionally, Pokemon grow stronger by raising their levels and increasing their base stats, however, such power is still affected by the individual strengths innate to each Pokemon. Hyper training allows Pokemon that have grown to Lv. 100 to increase their individual strengths, which has not been possible in previous Pokemon games. You can now make your Lv. 100 Pokémon even stronger.

Hyper training is done by Mr. Hyper, a new character who can be found somewhere in the Alola region who loves collecting Bottle Caps. By bringing him Bottle Caps, a new item which is obtainable in Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon, players will be able to carry out Hyper Training on their Pokemon.

The mythical Pokemon Magearna, which is planned for distribution in North America later this year, will be distributed with a Bottle Cap held item.

    that wimp out ability on wimpod will make it a pain to catch, almost as bad as teleporting Abras and those legendaries that run around the world map.

    Bounsweet is sweet! :3

    I like the Comfey design aswell, it remind me of Flabébé, so maybe a really beautiful evolution :D
    About Bounsweet, it reminds me of Cherubi, its also so cute, but I hope for a better evolution then Cherrim... Cherrim is beautiful when the sun shines...

    Bounsweet can Evolve something with a White body... if you see already his body is pulling out the fruit x)

    The Horse is also a great design, but I don't like Pokémon like that, it will definitley not have a evolution or something, like Tauros/Bouffalant...
    But yeah we wont know till they reveal everything.

    And I dont know why they keep saying its a bear... about Bewear, it looks so familiar with the Red Panda, I know Panda's are bears but still red panda is not a bear species... :( Also he was fighting a Pangoro in the trailer... so hope for a pre-evolution like Pancham :O That would be so cute!

    I actually like all of the revealed pokemon until now, including Bruxish and Bewear whom I don't really like at first.

    Now, give me my copy of Pokemon Moon! I want to play it so bad after watching that. :p

    Heh. Bewear.

    Groudon's weight: 2,094.4 lbs.
    Mudsdale's weight: 2028.3 lbs.
    Primal Groudon's weight: 2,204.4 lbs.

    That's terrifying. Either Groudon weights too little or Mudsdale weights too much. Would not want a Mudsdale galloping in my hood.

    I like all pokemon revealed as well. From this batch my least favorite is wimpod, followed by comfey. I really love the horse and the little fruit is very cute as they tend to be. I like Bewear even more now, although I expected its mouth to be located within the white muzzle, not under it, and that bothers me a little. I was pretty indifferent towards mimikyu but I definitely like it much more now and that ability it's pretty sweet too.

    Hyper training is very interesting. My first thought was that we were going to be able to increase the IVs of ANY pokemon, even those with perfect IVs, but after a second look at the trailer it looks like Pikachu's Iv growth stopped at 31. If true is still interesting since you'll be able to make pokemon you we're attached too and weren't competitively viable much better.

    Out of all these I only like Wimpod, mainly because it looks very prehistoric-like (my favorite Pokemon design).

    Also, 1+ for being my favorite type, bug

    Bounsweet is actually really cute too ;D

    I feel like 95% of grass pokemon & about 50% of water pokemon have weather based abilities, and since the nerf of weather conditions I just feel like these abilities are useless. I wish they would come up with some original abilities that do not rely on weather :(

    Confey MUST be related to the Flabebe line. The pure fairy type with a ton of flowers gave it away. Also, that horse must be stocking up on Pokeblocks, its almost as heavy as BASE GROUDON.

    Well, we found out why people actually got into this game.


    Damn you Mimikyu. You freak of nature.

    I'm more interested in looking at the Pokemon in the trailer fighting the Comfey tbh

    I love it when we get more than we were expecting. We knew Bewear and Mimikyu would get an official reveal but then boom 4 more for a surprise. Surskit no longer has a unique typing, here's hoping if Wimpod evolves it'll keep its types.

    And yet we still know nothing about the storyline of the game, no info on gyms or the evil team. Got to hand it to marketing on this gen they've built a powerful hype train.

    I look at Bounsweet and I see the face of Whimsicott. :-X

    Also; the Clydesdale Pokemon (Mudsdale) looks really sweet. Plus, I really like Comfey; being like a floral wreath.

    These Pokemon are all pretty interesting (with the exception of Bounsweet):

    Bounsweet is the least interesting as it has no new abilities and just plain grass typing. It also looks like it should of been Cherubi's evolution (maybe it's a branch evolution/probably not)). Bounsweet will probably have one evolution.

    Bewear; awesome name. It's new ability, Fluffy, is perfect for balancing out Bewear. Not taking it's ability into consideration, it is weak to Fairy, Flying, Fighting and Psychic. With it's new ability, Bewear becomes weak to Fire but any physical moves from it's weaknesses will be reduced to neutral damaging moves. The thing that interests me is if it is hit with a physical Fire type move such as Fire Punch, will it be a neutral move? Bewear probably has no evolutions.

    Comfey's ability is pretty good; Triage allows restorative moves to always go first, matter what. It may be somewhat useless competitively on this Pokemon but this ability could be go for Pokemon with healing moves. It may or may not have an evolution.

    Mudsdale seems to a defensive powerhouse; it's Stamina ability allows it to practically use a Defense Curl and up it's defense by 1 and it's new move Highhorse Power seems pretty powerful. One thing that interests me about Mudsdale is it's weight; it weighs barely less than Groudon, the heaviest Pokemon so far with Mudsdale weighing 2028.3 Ibs and Groudon weighing 2094.4 Ibs. It's seems ridiculously heavy, especially when you consider that Mudsdale is only 8'02" while Groudon is 11'06". Probably won't have an evolution.

    Mimikyu's Ghost/Fairy typing is awesome; it only has Steel and Ghost as it's weaknesses and it is immune to Dragon, Fighting and Normal. It's ability is also awesome, being an automatic substitute. Even though it says it can only use this ability once, I wonder if you can reset the ability by switching it out (Probably not since that would make it incredibly overpowered.) It may or may not have an evolution (It might be similar to the Scraggy/Scrafty line).

    And last but not least, Wimpod. Wimpod doesn't bring much new other than it's new ability, which isn't that useful in battle and seems there just annoy trainers trying to catch it (even though it can easily be overcome by throwing a Pokeball (any Pokeball really) at it when your Pokemon is a higher level and just hoping you catch it). It might have one or two evolutions (praying that it has two)

    As for the new features:

    Friendly Competitions seems like a good way for tournaments to be held at Regionals, Nationals and Worlds and seems a good way for unofficial tournaments to be held as well. Probably won't see much outside of those two possibilities unless used as practice against online competitors in preparation for Regionals, Nationals and Worlds.

    Hyper Training is extremely interesting. It allows you to make your level 100 even stronger (people are going to have a lot of level 100 Pokemon thanks to the duplication glitch in Red/Blue). I wonder how it'll work; all we know is that we can make you level 100 Pokemon stronger by increasing their stats; we don't how much we can increase them by.

    The trailer shows us Pikachu's stats increase from:
    Hp: 185 -> 211 : +26
    Attack: 125 -> 146 : +21
    Defense: 92 -> 116 : +24
    Speed: 194 -> 216 : +22
    Sp Def: 103 -> 122 : +19
    Sp Atk: 134 -> 149 : +15

    The bottle cap feature is also interesting. It's interesting because it's a technically a permanent stat-raising item thanks to Mr. Hyper training your Pokemon for them. Does this mean that they'll be hard to find in game or will you have to use BP to get them through battling at a place such as the Battle Maison?

    Also, according to Serebii, the Japanese Pokemon site elaborates and states that Magearna is holding a Silver Bottle Cap, meaning there will most likely be different types of bottle caps, allowing for a bigger or smaller stat increase based on their worth.

    Mimikyu is probably tied with Drampa for my favourite Pokémon from Sun/Moon so far, but I'm also really intrigued by Bounsweet (which I keep wanting to call Bonusweet). I'm usually a sucker for cute-looking Grass-types, and I'm anxious to see what its evolutionary line looks like. Since I'm probably going with Litten as my starter, I may pick that guy up as my Grass-type.

    Wimpod for the win. Some very interesting abilities were revealed here. I see they are really pushing with those that involve stat increase if damage has been taken. Also, another flower pokemon that is a pure fairy type?
     
  19. I really like the names for these Pokémon *Cough* Bewear *Cough* and also the designs of all of them. Hosting competitions has actually been something I've wanted, really bad. Shiny Wimpods will be pains to catch if they have low catch rate. RIP Surskit's unique typing.
