Pokémon Sun & Moon information reveals six new additions/Hyper Training revealed - 19/07/2016

Entry 14:00pm. Added English trailer 14:08pm. HQ artwork added 14:30pm. Sun & Moon Dex updated 15:10pm. Trailers section 15:22pm. Features section 15:30pm - 19/08/2016. (Don't forget to visit our Facebook page for news updates and more.)


New Pokémon Sun & Moon information has been revealed, and with it brings six new additions including Wimpod, Bounsweet, Bewear, Mudsdale, Mimikyu and Comfey. For full information you can refer to our Sun & Moon section.


Also announced is the new Hyper Training function which can be used to increase Pokémon’s power. Traditionally, Pokémon grow stronger by raising their levels and increasing their base stats. However, such power is still affected by the individual strengths innate to each Pokémon. Hyper Training allows Pokémon that have grown to Lv. 100 to increase their individual strengths, which has not been possible in previous Pokémon games. You can now make your Lv. 100 Pokémon even stronger. Hyper Training is done by Mr. Hyper, a new character who can be found somewhere in the Alola region. By using Bottle Caps, a new item obtainable in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, players will be able to carry out Hyper Training on their Pokémon.


Note : The Mythical Pokémon Magearna, planned for distribution in Europe later, will be distributed with a Bottle Cap held item.


New features are coming to the Pokémon Global Link, to make it compatible with Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon and to introduce Friendly Competitions, a new function which allows players to become competition hosts and hold their own original competitions, where they can set the regulations. Two types of Friendly Competition will be available, Online and Live.


Online Competitions— These are competitions which are played over the internet. Players will be matched with an opponent and compete against each other for the best rating. These competitions can be open to Pokémon Trainers all over the world, or they can be set to only allow pre-approved Trainers to enter.


Live Competitions— These competitions allow players to host a competition and play together with friends and other Trainers who are in the same space. The Digital Player ID that contains competition regulations is generated as a QR Code, and by scanning the QR code into a 3DS system, participants can join and battle according to the set regulations.

Name: Rockruff (Special Artwork Picture one / Picture two)

Type: Rock

Rockruff has an excellent sense of smell, and once it has smelled an odour, it doesn’t forget it. There are tales of these Pokémon getting separated from their Trainers, then using the faintest traces of their scent to track them for days until they are reunited.


Name: Komala (Special Artwork Picture one / Picture two)

Type: Normal

No one has ever seen a Komala awake. It eats, travels and even battles while sound asleep. According to ancient people, its saliva can be used as medicine for the sick or sleepless. Komala has the Comatose Ability which keeps it perpetually in a drowsing state, preventing it from getting any other status conditions.
