Apparently, some Pokémon fans across the globe wasn’t too ecstatic about yesterday’s Sun & Moon reveals at Gamescom 2016, so I guess it’s a good thing that that there’s been a double dose of Sun & Moon news dropped on us today!
First up we got to learn about Crabrawler, a Fighting-type Boxing Pokémon, who hates to lose. Crabrawler (aka Krabby meets Mankey,) was revealed during the 2016 Pokémon World Championships, (which kicked off today,) but turns out this reveal wouldn’t be the only time we got to hear about Crabrawler, as a new trailer has also been released today and not including Crabrawler, three other Pokémon have been revealed as well.
Somewhat sadly though, the other three new Pokémon, although they are new Gen VII Pokémon, this is not the first time we’ve seen these three new Pokémon as Sandygast, Palossand and Stufful are the very same Pokémon we learned about last week, thanks to CoroCoro. Still that doesn’t put us off wanting to know more about the four Pokémon, so here’s a quick run-through of what we got to see and the official footage:
What Got Revealed:
“New” Pokémon: Crabrawler (Fighting) Known Abilities: Hyper Cutter / Iron Fist
“New” Pokémon: Sandygast (Ghost/Ground) Known Abilities: Water Compaction (Evolves into Palossand)
