Yesterday, the latest issue of CoroCoro debuted new Pokémon and varieties of existing Pokémon. Today however, we got more information on the Pokémon Sun/Moon characters as well as the new adversaries, Team Skull.

Team Skull had been causing loads of trouble in the Alola region. They’ve been stealing other people’s Pokémon, vandalizing trial sites, and committing all sorts of other evil acts.

As revealed yesterday, Guzma is the boss of this “group of ruffins” and is rather formidable in battle. He also seems to have a form of personal issue with Professor Kukui. While we will go into more details, the video below is a great recap of what we’ll be covering.

The admin of the team is Plumeria, who’s considered a “big sister” to the team. She’s tough on the other members of Team Skull and keeps them in line, and like a typical big sister, she takes up for her “Grunts” when they’ve been given the what for.

Speaking of the Grunts, these other member of Team Skull like to wear matching, black Skull Tanks.

Alright, now onto the Pokémon we’ll be showing. Scans from CoroCoro showed a pre-evolved form of Bewera and the ghost/ground-type Pokémon Sunabaa, which resembles a sandcastle. Neither of these two were detailed in the press release, nor where images shown.

The water-type fish Pokémon, Wishiwashi (known as Yowashi in Japan), which evolves in to a school form was detailed.

Also below, you will see more information on the Pokémon which adapt to the Alola region. Alolan Meowth, Alola Raichu, and Alola Marowak.

Wishiwashi – Water

Wishiwashi has a new ability known as Schooling, which no Pokémon has previously had. Under certain conditions, Wishiwashi will change in battle to their School Form.

Solo Form

“A single Wishiwashi is tiny and weak. Measuring just eight inches from nose to tail, Wishiwashi is very small, even for a Pokémon. Yet the people of the Alola region seem to view it as a terrifying Pokémon. When it’s in danger, Wishiwashi’s glistening eyes catch the light and shine out, sending a distress signal to its allies.”


School Form

“The seemingly weak Wishiwashi is called the demon of the sea because of its ferocious School Form. When Wishiwashi receive a distress signal, they unite in a huge battle formation.”

Pyukumuku – Water

“Due to their appearance and way of life, Pyukumuku are considered unappealing to tourists. Part-time work pulling Pyukumuku off the beach and chucking them back into the sea is available at tourist beaches. But no matter how far they’re thrown, Pyukumuku will always return to the same spot. Pyukumuku have a new Ability, Innards Out, which no other Pokémon has had before. When this Pokémon faints, Innards Out lets it dish out a final bit of damage to its opponent, equal to the amount of HP it had left before it received the final blow.”

pyukumukuMorelull – Grass/Fairy

“Morelull are nocturnal Pokémon that walk around at night on their leg-like roots. They move because staying in one spot and sucking all the nutrients from the soil would cause surrounding plants to wither. With their roots, they make contact with other Morelull and communicate with one another.”


Pokemon Adapted to the Alola Region

These specific Pokémon have adapted to the micro-climates of Alola and are called regional variants. They “live like native Pokémon,” but can have different appearances and types.

Alolan Meowth – Dark

“Meowth is a Pokemon that did not originally live in the Alola region. They were sent to the royal family of Alola as an offering from another region, and only a select few could have them as partners. It’s said that the Meowth that were offered to the royalty lived a life of luxury and pampering, which led them to have a selfish and prideful attitude. This caused Meowth’s form to change.”

Alolan Marowak – Fire/Ghost

“The Marowak in the Alola region take bones and light both ends on fire by rubbing them against their foreheads. Then they spin the bones around! Marowak’s rarity and its fearsome appearance when it dances with its bone led the people of Alola to dub it a conjurer and regard it with fear.”

Alolan Raichu – Electric/Psychic

“The Raichu in Alola have two types—Electric and Psychic—and they are able to wield psychic power. What’s more, they can gather their psychic power in their tails and then ride on them to float in the air.”

Hopefully we’ll be hearing about Sunabaa and it’s evolved form shortly, which is a larger sandcastle called Shirodesuna.
