New Sun and Moon information from CoroCoro, with two new Pokémon and.... THE PUPPY IS SO FRICKEN CUTE I WANT 100 OF THEM! (details from Serebii.net)-
The first images from CoroCoro have leaked and have revealed two new Pokémon. As always, do note that translations are preliminary while we work on them. First up is Nekkoala, the Half Awake Pokémon which is Normal-type with the ability Definite Sleep which prevents it being afflicted with a status other than sleep, while the dog is Iwanko, and is a Rock-type Pokémon. It's abilities are Keen Eye or Vital Spirit. It is the Puppy Pokémon.
Attendees at the movie will receive a Pokémon Ga-Olé disc that has a QR Code that will be scanned to get Magearna in Pokémon Sun & Moon. Magearna has got the Soul Heart Ability and a new move called Fleur Cannon and will be found at Level 50 with the moves Fleur Cannon, Flash Cannon, Lucky Chant and Helping Hand.
CoroCoro hints that Rowlet, Litten, Popplio and Iwanko all hide a secret.
The Forms of the Legendary Pokémon Solgaleo and Lunala are two Pokémon that hold an important key to the story. The forms that these two Pokémon take when they release their mighty power are now revealed as the Radiant Sun phase and the Full Moon phase. Both appear to be shining with a stronger light than in their previously released images. What will these two do when they release their full power?
Ledyba can be found in Route 1 of the game.
The move lists can bring up full details and tell you if the move will be effective, super effective, or not effective on the opponent Pokémon.
You can now see how a stat has been altered via moves in battle.
Ledyba is #020 in the Alola Region Pokédex and will show you the evolution chain or if it forms a pair.
There is a festival in the next town that kicks off your journey. It's where you battle Hau where he has a Pichu.
Popplio can know Disarming Voice.
A new Battle mode called Battle Royale where four players play with 3 Pokémon, each sending out one at a time. It's a Free-For-All battle but when the first trainer loses all their Pokémon, the game ends and players are tallied up by defeated Pokémon and remaining Pokémon and that determines the winner.

The koala looks interesting, I might train one. I thought it would be the regional Route 1 Normal-type before Yungoos was announced. Yungoos doesn't seem half bad either. It has two awesome Abilities, but I fear that its Stats will be rather lackluster like most regional rodents' Stats. The dog is cute, but I'm not very impressed because it's yet another dog Pokémon. The only thing it has going for it is its Rock-type. Pikipek is adorable, I'll probably catch one to be my basic team's Flyer. Grubbin is a bug, nuff said. As for the legendaries, I couldn't care less.
Battle Royal seems cool. It reminds me of Pokéathlon's Ring Drop in HGSS. I used to love Pokéathlon. I know I'll be spending a lot of time with Battle Royal.
We can now see our Pokémon's altered Stats and how our moves will affect the opponent? All right! It's incredible how there are still so many things that can be improved about the basic gameplay.

Design-wise Pikipek is my favorite of the three newest revealed mons, but as always the final evolution will be the deciding factor for me. Its design is darn near perfect for a woodpecker pokemon and being able to use Skill Link so early in the game should be fun.
Grubbin looks interesting, as perhaps it will be our first three stage beetle pokemon (assuming it has three stages like other early Bug types that start out as larva).
Yungoos... nice abilities but I can't handle those teeth. :@_@: They are hilarious and disconcerting at the same time. I hope its evolution grows into them a bit.
In more detail on how well done I think Pikipek is, here's how they got down the woodpecker features perfectly:
1. Colors (many woodpeckers have red, white and black on them). 2. Two backward facing toes (they use these to help them cling to and walk up tree trunks). 3. Stiff tail feathers (used as a brace when clinging to tree trunks), or at least they appear to be stiff. 4. And of course the chisel-like beak.
The question arises if it will remain a woodpecker or change species as it evolves. Regional birds have followed both paths after all in different generations. However, the fact that they gave it such a special ability that connects directly to being a woodpecker (Skill Link) suggests to me the possibility that it will remain a woodpecker as it evolves, growing into versions of larger and more majestic varieties.
Course they could also keep it mainly a woodpecker but still mix it with another type of bird, becoming some kind of super woodpecker chimera.
So I completely missed out on this information on Iwanko from CoroCoro when it was firs revealed, mainly because it wasn't posted on Serebii's news page-
Iwanko looks cute, but is really gutsy: No matter how much it gets beaten it'll keep standing up to its enemies until it beats them. It greets people by pressing the rocks attached to its neck against them, which is kind of painful for the recipient. Its body is small, but it hides a secret.
A new trailer for Pokémon Sun and Moon has been released, which features seven new Pokémon. This trailer has currently only been released in Japanese, so the names of new Pokémon are transliterations of their Japanese names (except for Tapu Koko) and the names of the new moves and Abilities are translations of their Japanese names.
Kapu Kokeko/Tapu Koko is an Electric/Fairy-type Pokémon. It has the new Ability Electro Maker, which creates Electric Terrain. It can learn the new move Wrath of Nature, which is a damage-dealing move. Its English name was revealed in the E3 gameplay demonstration, in which it was described as Melemele Island's guardian deity (without appearing).
Denjimushi is a Bug/Electric-type Pokémon. It can learn the move Spark. It evolves into Kuwaganon.
Kuwaganon is a Bug/Electric-type Pokémon. It can learn the move Zap Cannon.
Jijīron is a Normal/Dragon-type Pokémon. It has the new Ability Frenzy, which raised its Special Attack after being hit by Dragon Claw (which lowered it to low HP). It can learn the move Dragon Breath.
Hagigishiri is a Water/Psychic-type Pokémon. It has the new Ability Vivid Body, which prevented an opposing Kangaskhan from using Fake Out on it. It can learn the move Psywave.
Aburī is a Bug/Fairy-type Pokémon. It can learn the move Fairy Wind.
Togedemaru is an Electric/Steel-type Pokémon. It has the Ability Lightning Rod. It can learn the new move Discharge Strike, which is a damage-dealing move.
Additionally, Zygarde 50% Forme is now confirmed to have the Ability Swarm Change, which is the same Ability Zygarde 10% Forme was shown to have. Swarm Change allows Zygarde 10% Forme or 50% Forme to change into Complete Forme, and appears to activate when it is at low HP. Additionally, Zygarde 50% Forme is now confirmed to be able to learn Thousand Arrows, a move which exists unused in the code of the Generation VI games and that Zygarde 10% Forme has already been shown to use in Pokémon Sun and Moon.

Oh no, don't you fucking dare hint at that with Drampa. It's a fucking protector of children, it will get pissed off at anyone who hurts a child, it's the best grandpa in Pokėmon form.
Then I stand corrected. Even though I was joking in the first place. This is a site that revels in dark humor, after all. Besides, Drampa might unfortunately end up getting that kind of a reputation among fans, anyway, similar to what Bronies did to Princess Celestia.

These are some interesting new Pokémon, except maybe the bugs and the new Pikachu clone. Most of them have cool type combinations too, but the thing that caught my attention the most were all the new Abilities. Dazzling, Comatose, Berserk and Electric Surge all sound like awesome Abilities, although if Tapu Koko turns out to be a legendary Pokémon, then I won't use it. Almost everyone else is pretty much guaranteed a place in one of my teams, including the bugs if their Stats won't suck.
However, I definitely won't use Togedemaru. I made the mistake of training a Minun, Pachirisu and Emolga in their respective Gens, and they were completely useless. Luckily I wised up and didn't train a Dedenne in Gen VI and I won't train this thing either. If they absolutely must keep making electric rodents, then why won't they give them any evolutions so they wouldn't suck so much? I know they don't like to admit it, but the original electric rodent can evolve, so why can't its clones?

I agree. I hate Family Guy, but even I thought your joke was quite funny.
Besides, Drampa might unfortunately end up getting that kind of a reputation among fans, anyway, similar to what Bronies did to Princess Celestia.
Oh, don't worry. Princess Molestia is pretty much dead these days. I actually think MLP memes keep getting better and better, as long as they're not overused.
Donkarasu: Complaining about TPCI skipping SM064 means they also watch the dub version or they are people who only watch the dub, but are aware of every episode when they air in Japan and thus where wanting to see this episode dubbed and got upset it was banned.
Mar 26, 2019 3:26:04 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Yes, there where people who only watched the original complained about it too, but they're just a part of it.
Mar 26, 2019 17:37:01 GMT -4
Donkarasu: So I understand going against those who made something controversial or are horrible people, but there's no justifying doing it to a good person who's work is innocent simply because you don't like it. You can hate the work without insulting the creator.
Mar 26, 2019 19:13:53 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: And I'll add on that just because one group is loud and pointlessly angry doesn't mean you have to stoop to their level to counter it.
Mar 26, 2019 23:23:44 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Agreed, it's better to just ignore the criticism than letting it get to you. And this also leads to people trying to force new viewers not to watch a certain version of a show simply because they don't like it. Fuck off and let folks decide for themselves.

pkfan: Hey guys I'm planning on doing a Pokemon crossover story with Deadpool, due to the 'Detective Pikach' movie coming out and I was wandering if you guys would have any suggestions for me to use in the story.
Mar 28, 2019 20:41:14 GMT -4
pkfan: I mean first off I am going to have Wade completely destroy the fourth wall, and the stuff he's going to say about the franchise and the fanbase as a whole, trust me nothing will be off limits. The title is going to be called 'Alola to The Merc' so yeah.
Mar 28, 2019 20:43:31 GMT -4
pkfan: like I said I'm open to any ideas for the story.
Mar 28, 2019 20:44:00 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Well we haven't really ever covered fanfiction here, but I say that if you have an idea you wanna use, then by all means go for it. Though I say try not to have the satire overtake the plot, it should be used as a supplement after all.
Mar 29, 2019 9:00:54 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Though also you should make sure to post it there instead of here if you do write it out.
Mar 29, 2019 9:01:45 GMT -4
pkfan: Oh trust me I'm going to post it there and as for plot... no comment on that one.
Mar 31, 2019 21:30:07 GMT -4
Donkarasu: People can hate silly things without acting like they are offended by it. It's not that hard.

ShiningStarlia: The flaws of XY and XYZ were many, and there's too many to count. The whole reason I believe that transformation exists is because they had recently used the Ash's Charizard card and he had no mega-capable Pokemon on him, and generation 6's gimmick was
Apr 1, 2019 23:27:34 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: super saiyan transformations, and Greninja was popular (Heck I like the frog and his transformation still; characters and mon's can't decide to be overwhelmingly popular) enough that the writer's be like "Lol, we dun goofed. Gen 7 is coming and we
Apr 1, 2019 23:28:45 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: "Fiddled around procrastinating long enough. We write ourselves into a corner so just give the Frog super saiyan powers and lets wrap this up quickly so we can move onto gen 7."
Apr 1, 2019 23:29:55 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Was more of a major pacing issue and they learned their lessons with the Sun and Moon anime. I can only hope that they don't drop the ball now and honestly have the audience feel like there has been true progression on Ash's journey by the end of it.
Apr 1, 2019 23:32:17 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: I have to say, the Bewear Kite comedy in the most recent episode was pure gold!
Apr 15, 2019 12:07:19 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: You know, I love the clever nod to the games where Ryuki mentions the problems with his baby-like face which is why he hides it the way like we see. However, while it isn't really brought up here, the way his actual eyes are shown does show that youthful
