Just when veteran Pokmon trainers thought they have seen it all, a couple of new Pokmon were presented in a trailer that also introduces players to the Aether Foundation and the mysterious Ultra Beasts.

The first Pokmon introduced is Type: Null, a synthetically constructed chimera-like Pokmon which uses the strengths of various Pokmon, thus allowing it to rival the strength of mythological Pokmon. This Normal-type Pokmon has the ability to use Battle Armor, and it is also the partner Pokmon of Team Skull’s Gladion.

The second newcomer is Jangmo-o, a Dragon-type Pokmon that has the ability to use Bulletproof/Soundproof. Jangmo-o lives in harsh locales like canyons, and it uses the scales on its head as a weapon both offensively and defensively. ComicBook.com says that the Jangmo-o may evolve into the most powerful Pokmon in Alola since the Jangmo-o looks like one of the basic forms of a “quasi-Legendary” Pokmon in the region.

The trailer also introduced Pokmon trainers to the Aether Foundation and the Ultra Beast UB-01. While the Aether Foundation wants to take care of and help wounded Pokmon, it is also conducting research on the Ultra Beasts.

Speaking of Ultra Beasts, not much is known about the glass-like jellyfish UB-01. The creature may not be a Pokmon since it is not included in the Pokmon index on the “Pokmon Sun” and “Pokmon Moon” website.

The UB-01 can be a threat to Pokmon and trainers, so players have to be careful when encountering them for the first time. ComicBook.com claims that there may be a connection between UB-01 and Lillie since there is a resemblance between the two.

Pokmon researchers, Dexio and Sina, were also introduced in the trailer. A new Alolan Raticate was also shown.

A new feature called “Pok Finder” will be included in the game. It serves as a camera for players to take photos of Pokmon in the wild.
