Your level 100s can get even stronger in Pokémon Sun and Moon
Nintendo has released a new trailer for the upcoming Pokémon Sun and Moon games. Six new Pokémon are detailed including their types and abilities. Also seen in the trailer are the new online competitions that players can host on the Pokémon Global Link. Hosts have total control over who is allowed to enter their competitions and what rules to battle by.
Another new feature is Hyper Training, which should excite players who like competitive play. No longer will trainers need to breed hundreds of eggs to get a Pokémon with perfect stats, because once a Pokémon reaches level 100, they will be able increase their base stats even further. Hyper Training is done by My. Hyper, who will train your level 100 Pokémon to increase its individual stat values, something that has never been possible before.
Nintendo also gave some detailed descriptions of the pocket monsters in the new trailer.
Wimpod is the Turn Tail Pokémon. This Pokémon is a cowardly scavenger which eats or stores anything that’s been dropped in the sea, so it’s highly valued across the Alola region as a cleaner of the sea. Wimpod has the new Ability Wimp Out, which causes this Pokémon to run away or swap out for another Pokémon when its HP drops below half in battle.
Fruit Pokémon Bounsweet gives off a delicious aroma. This aroma has a calming effect on humans, so many people across Alola let them live inside their homes as an air freshener.
Comfey, the Posy Picker Pokémon, picks flowers to carry around. Comfey uses its soothing aroma to help treat people and Pokémon at Pokémon Centers and hospitals.
Mudsdale is the Draft Horse Pokémon, possessing incredible power and endurance. Its legs are coated in protective mud, and its kick can destroy a car in a single blow. Mudsdale can have the Ability Stamina, a new Ability which raises a Pokémon’s Defense by one when it’s hit by an attack.
Bewear is the Strong Arm Pokémon that must never be approached carelessly. With its stout and highly developed arms and legs, Bewear loves to give crushing bear hugs which will split anything in two.
As the Disguise Pokémon, Mimikyu lives its life constantly covered by its cloth. Mimikyu’s Disguise Ability allows it to escape danger from an enemy’s attack one time, changing its appearance afterward.
Pokémon Sun and Moon will release later this year on November 18.
