Welcome back to “Who’s That Pokémon?” the feature series regarding the Pokémon we can expect to see in the upcoming games. From Rowlet to Magearna, and Tapu Koko to Mudsdale, we have covered them all, but now that a huge amount of new Pokémon and Alolan versions of Pokémon we’ve already seen before, it’s time for a lot of new additions of Who’s That Pokémon? and in this particular post, it’s all about Oricorio!
Pokémon: Oricorio (Pom-Pom Style)
Classification: Dancing Pokémon
Weight: 7.5 lbs
Known Abilities: Dancer
Known Moves: Revelation Dance
Description: “Oricorio changes its form by sipping the nectar of certain flowers. Since it has four different forms—the same as the number of islands in Alola—it would seem that different Oricorio live on each of the islands.
The Pom-Pom Style Oricorio is very friendly toward people, and it uses dancing to encourage Trainers who are feeling glum. When it dances, its feathers are charged with static electricity. It can attack with these charged feathers, and sometimes it unleashes a powerful electric shock.
Oricorio has the new Dancer Ability that no other Pokémon has had before. If another Pokémon in the field uses a dancing move, then Oricorio will be able to use the same move immediately afterward, thanks to its Dancer Ability.
Revelation Dance is a move that only Oricorio can learn, and its type changes based on Oricorio’s current style.”
