In the wee hours of the morning, night owls were treated to seven new Pokemon from the ever-vigilant 4Chan, after a Russian source supposedly leaked them after breaking embargo. But a bit later in the morning, Pokemon Japan confirmed these leaks to be true in a video posted on their social media accounts.
Responses to these new guys have been mixed, but we’ll let you decide for yourself what you think.
And for those who missed close-ups on these guys, here they are again:
Tapu Koko, an Electric/Fairy type Pokemon we’ve heard about from previous videos. This guy looks awesome! Its new ability creates the effects of Electric Terrain upon being sent out.
Then there’s Drampa, which is a Normal/Dragon type. (Atreyu, anyone?)
Charjabug, the evolved form of Grubbin that is a Bug/Electric type. Make sure to catch the bug bus!
And then, its the evolved form of Charjabug, Vikavolt! Just look at those chompers! We actually get to see it evolving during the video!
There’s also the Water/Psychic type…Bruxish…
There’s Togedemaru, an Electric/Steel type that’s clearly the Pikachu of the region. What a cool typing, and super cute to boot!
And last, but CERTAINLY not least, there’s Cutiefly, who is a Bug/Fairy type. What an adorable little thing!
Pokemon of America hasn’t confirmed any of this yet for those of us out West, but because The Pokemon National Championships are this weekend, we might see more information then!
