Before we start getting our hopes up that it could be a new Pokémon series reveal, the last bout of Pokémon news revealed a new Electric Pokémon called Zeraora, who will be appearing in the upcoming Pokémon movie: Everyone’s Story. The Pokémon will also be coming to the Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon games though it was never announced when. This news was also aired on the Oha Suta show when it was first announced. The upcoming show could be looking into more information about this Pokémon and it’s role in the movie and not necessarily at the nect instalment of Pokémon Games.
Still, we may get lucky and before the episode of Oha Suta airs. The Pokemon Company may officially reveal what the news could be on Social media or on their YouTube channel. I guess only time will tell and being so that there is a couple of days to go, its not that long to wait.
