'Pokmon Sun and Moon' Alola forms update: Crabrawler counterpart rumored, new Pokmon to be unveiled this month?


It’s been a while since news was heard about Pokmon that didn’t involve or mention the current mobile app craze, but fans of the upcoming video games, “Pokmon Sun” and “Pokmon Moon” know for a fact that there is more to the name than just the augmented reality mobile game “Pokmon GO.” Now the latest rumor to come out is that Pokmon Crabrawler could see a counterpart in the game.

A recent report claims that the counterpart is actually a Pokmon boxing type named Loboxter, which accordingly is eerily similar to Crabrawler in the sense that it also is classified as a fighting kind.

Aside from that, another rumor says that there also will be several Pokmon scheduled to be revealed this month. According to another report, aside from Loboxter, Dulfrost is also going to be unveiled a type of snowman Pokmon that belongs to the Ghost/Ice variety. Meanwhile, the third on the list is Uhaku, which this time is rumored to be some kind of a transformation from another Pokmon called Rockaby.

But just like most other information that surfaced recently about the upcoming game, these are mere speculations that have yet to be confirmed or substantiated by its developer, Game Freak, or the game publisher, Nintendo.

And supposed those three Pokmon are officially confirmed, they obviously will be joining those characters that already have been previously added for “Pokmon Sun” and “Pokmon Moon,” including Arcanine, Lapras, and Psyduck.

Also, IB Times noted that the three mentioned Pokmon are going to retain their original forms in the Alola region, while the ones who are expected to be transforming into their Alolan forms are the likes of Marowak, Meowth, Raichu, Vulpix, and others.

The “Pokmon Sun” and “Pokmon Moon” video game series is already scheduled for an international release on Nov. 18.
