'Pokmon Sun and Moon' update: six new Pokmon, hyper training mode unveiled


Nintendo and The Pokmon Company have released another trailer for “Pokmon Sun” and “Pokmon Moon” which introduces six more Pokmon. Also, there are new mechanics that will be featured in the upcoming versions of the game. In preparation for the release of the two games, the online servers for the previous “Pokmon” versions on the Nintendo 3DS will be shut down.

The Pokdex is continuously growing as six more creatures are introduced in the trailer. The first Pokmon that was introduced is Bounsweet, which is a Grass type Pokmon and its appearance like a fruit that has an adorable face. The Pokmon has two abilities called Oblivious and Leaf Guard.

Another Bug/Water type Pokmon was also introduced as Wimpod. The Pokmon has the features of a cockroach with a more pleasing appearance, and has the Wimp Out ability which allows it to run away or swap with another Pokmon during battle.

Comfey was the third Pokmon that was introduced. It has the appearance of a flower crown or a flower necklace. The creature may seem like a Grass type, but it is actually a Fairy type. The Pokmon has two abilities as well, which are Flower Veil and Triage.

The next Pokmon joining the Pokdex is Mudsdale, a Ground type Pokmon that looks like a horse. It has two abilities, Own Tempo and Stamina. There’s also Bewear, a Normal/Fighting type Pokmon with the Fluffy/Klutz ability.

The final Pokmon that was introduced is Mimikyu, a Ghost/Fairy type Pokmon with the ability to disguise itself. It is already a fan favorite since it looks like a Pokmon hiding under a cloth that looks like Pikachu. The Pokmon wants to be loved like Pikachu which fans find adorable.

Aside from the new Pokmon that were introduced, a new feature will be added as well. The new Hyper Training feature allows trainers to train their Pokmon past the level 100 cap.

In other news, the online services of “Pokmon X,” “Pokmon Y,” “Pokmon: Omega Ruby,” and “Pokmon: Alpha Sapphire” will be shut down in October. The reason for this is because there will be a new Global Link System for “Pokmon Sun” and “Pokmon Moon,” which will be available with the previous versions of the game as well.

“Pokmon Sun” and “Pokmon Moon” will be released on Nov. 18.
