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.
ShiningStarlia: I remember her voicing a blind kid who was healed by Fat Buu back in Z. And that must've been like, almost 20 years ago I think!

Donkarasu: It's funny, despite Ribrianne getting so much hate (not me, I think she's an entertaining character and love the Magical Girl parody Toei added with her and her team mates) people were excited to hear that Veronica Taylor was voicing Ribrianne.
Dec 6, 2018 6:04:19 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: In a way though. I personally have no problem with her and think her magical girl parody is hilarious and her transformation is meant to look hideous that even in-universe Vegeta couldn't bring himself to punch her when she tried to use Rollout on him.
Dec 8, 2018 0:28:31 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Though considering how much screentime she soaks up, I can see where most of the complaints come from. Then again, one can say the same thing about the Saiyans (U6 and U7) so who am I to complain? Haha.

Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: I think the forum's banner pic should be changed to Tsareena's butt closeup from today's episode. Pokemopolis thrives on easy-to-take-out-of-context stuff like that.
Dec 8, 2018 18:08:39 GMT -4
Donkarasu: So have been hearing Movie 21 has a heart warming story, it's not another movie that shoehorns in a Mythical and/or Legendary Pokémon for the sake of views, but rather their use in the plot is respectable, all characters get to do something notable, etc.
Dec 9, 2018 9:41:38 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: While that's true, it did still default to the whole "mythical/legendary hates humans until it meets Ash and friends" formula. Some parts of the old formula just had to stick around.
Dec 10, 2018 21:52:31 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: Everything else was fresh and well-done, though. And though I trash the music (the only weak point of the movie, and boy is it an Achilles' Heel; that is except for the dub's ending song), the movie itself is spectacular.
Dec 10, 2018 21:54:07 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Actual so-called-music that deserves to be called "noise" is whatever 4kids used in their dub for One Piece. Music you don't like, but can still clearly hear the instruments, should be called "bad music", calling it "noise" is just a petty insult.
Dec 14, 2018 12:09:50 GMT -4
Donkarasu: There were no instruments used for the 4kids' One Piece dub music, it was all synthesizers.
Dec 14, 2018 12:13:09 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Also that dub of that thing which when I showed Ryu the Japanese verison of long ago he said it was fine, but when I brought it up again, Ryu got all aggressive and started saying the original version was bad, despite the dub having all the flaws.
Dec 14, 2018 12:17:09 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: You never showed me that thing any more than once. And also, you showed me it in a failed attempt to make me like something about the JP version.
Dec 14, 2018 12:29:39 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Yes I did actually, I showed it to you to show you that when the narrator started singing it wasn't like in Brother Bear, like you thought (when the song was put over one character explaining something to another) but rather she was singing with them.
Dec 14, 2018 18:16:26 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Only you believe it was to get you to like the original, while I was just correcting your misinformation.
Dec 14, 2018 18:18:09 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: That first time was just a correction (and back then, the JP version hadn't fully earned my utter abhorrence). The second time was an attempt to sway me.
Dec 14, 2018 19:35:55 GMT -4
Donkarasu: No it wasn't, it was me having to get this thing out of my mind and so the best way was to let it out and share my thoughts with others. I mean by that logic, I guess you telling me that Popplio says "Arwoo" and Ashimari doesn't is you forcing me to like
Dec 15, 2018 6:14:45 GMT -4
Donkarasu: the dub voice and sway me away from the Japanese one, despite the fact that Popplio only goes "Pop! Pop!" and I have listen to Ashimari's voice more than enough to fully confirm it says what I said it does. But don't worry, I won't make that assumption.
Dec 15, 2018 6:26:40 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Oh and by the way, I do like the dub voice, but for a different reason from why I like the Japanese one.
Dec 15, 2018 6:30:30 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: All in all that was a good two parter: wish it lasted longer! And as for Dragonball Super, goodness it was great hearing Veronica Taylor again. She used bits of her May voice in the most recent dub episode.
Dec 16, 2018 12:35:04 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: HUGE dub-related news: Matori's dub name (or rather, only name since the dub kept her name as Matori) has finally been said in a dub episode.
