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?
Then I stand corrected. Even though I was joking in the first place. This is a site that revels in dark humor, after all.
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.
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: Sorry, it's just that after SM021 and M21, I know Mima's gonna be three for three when it comes to terribly mishandling emotional moments.
Feb 9, 2019 18:50:46 GMT -4
Donkarasu: But at least you're fine with episode 79, because you've never said anything about it.
Feb 9, 2019 19:02:38 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: That was a lucky case of not bad but the dub did better.
Feb 9, 2019 19:09:02 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Masafumi Mima said he got goosebumps when selecting the music for a certain episode and even the voice actors were brought to tears, I'm certain it was indeed episode 108 that he was talking about: twitter.com/Sunma47/status/1073896011758587909
Feb 9, 2019 19:12:11 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: That's fine and good for them. Mima's just unfortunately given me lots of reasons not to trust his music placement skills (actually, lack thereof).
Feb 9, 2019 22:39:49 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: Looks like I'm right not to have believed him when he promised I'd cry at the onscreen events. But I can give him a bit of credit: it turned out better than SM021 and M21 did, so that's a relief.
Feb 10, 2019 10:26:25 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: It ended up with the same results SM079JP did: a "well, okay, that happened. Can't wait for the dub to improve it" kind of feeling.
Feb 10, 2019 10:27:06 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: BTW, I watched it in the first place just because of how cocky Mima was about it.
Feb 10, 2019 18:07:31 GMT -4
Donkarasu: I'm just going to say it now: I will not be happy when TPCI fills the silent moments with music. Silence is needed especially in tear-jerking episodes as it helps set the mood for a depressing atmosphere (it's hard to describe, so I tried my best).
Feb 11, 2019 5:46:51 GMT -4
Donkarasu: It's more Reina Ueda's voice acting as Mao (I can't believe anyone who thinks she wasn't amazing) and the dialogue and less so the background music used which makes those scenes so heart breaking and caused me and others to cry or tear up.
Feb 12, 2019 10:04:15 GMT -4
Donkarasu: While I said I wasn't going to talk about the whole controversy around Vic Mignogna, I do want to say one thing about it and that's, it kind puts me off anything to do with Funimation, especially due to other voice actors being involved in this.
Feb 17, 2019 8:44:25 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: That is my biggest grief behind it. They honestly shouldn't of said anything at all, rather than outright lashing at fans that disagree with them.
Feb 17, 2019 19:44:19 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Regarding Sean Schemmel being the latest person to be a part of it, that causes me to say this: Even if you're not a fan of Masako Nozawa's Goku voice, at least she's a kind woman who respects fans and has never caused any sort of controversy.
Feb 18, 2019 13:03:11 GMT -4
Donkarasu: And for the record, this is not the only time Schemmel did/said something which caused some outrage.
Feb 18, 2019 13:04:46 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Yeah, I'm aware. His past sins have come to light and while I was able to tolerate a lot of it, his latest episode was were the line in the sand has been crossed. Cancelled Funimation account as well.
Feb 18, 2019 23:00:57 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: If he's gonna be an arrogant butt that insults the hands that feed him, then he'll have to accept the consequences of it and hopefully that'll stick. Still yeah. I was never annoyed with Nozawa's Goku voice and she is really nice.
Feb 18, 2019 23:03:51 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: I mean, Goku's supposed to sound like a disrespectful county hic (remember his inspiration from Journey of the West which the Monkey King routinely pissed off the gods)
Feb 18, 2019 23:05:54 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: and I think most complaints stem from just different tastes in vocals from us overseas. I honestly wonder why people make a really big deal out of it. Not everyone is Norio Wakamoto
