A lei, a coward, and a cosplayer walk into a bar…

Six new Pokemon from Pokemon Sun and Moon were shown off in a YouTube video posted today, and they include a coward, a lei, and an adorable cosplayer. You can check out details on them, per an accompanying press release, below:

Wimpod (Bug/Water type) is the Turn Tail Pokemon. This Pokemon is a cowardly scavenger that eats or stores anything that’s been dropped in the sea meaning it is highly valued across the Alola region as a cleaner of the sea. Wimpod has the new Ability Wimp Out which causes this Pokemon to run away or swap out for another Pokemon when its HP drops below half in battle.

Bounsweet (Grass type) is the Fruit Pokemon which gives off a delicious aroma. This aroma has a calming effect on humans, so many people across Alola let them live inside their homes as an air freshener.

The Posey Picker Pokemon Comfey (Fairy type) picks flowers which it carries around with it. Comfey uses its soothing aroma to help treat people and Pokemon at Pokemon Centers and hospitals.

Mudslade (Ground type) is the Draft Horse Pokemon with incredible power and stamina. Its legs are coated in a protective mud and its kick can destroy a car in a single blow. Mudslade has the Ability Stamina, a new Ability which raises a Pokemon’s Defense by one when hit by an attack.

Bewear (Normal/Fighting type) is the Strong Arm Pokemon that must never be approached carelessly. With its strong and highly developed arms and legs, Bewear loves to give crushing bear hugs that will split anything in two.

As the Disguised Pokemon, Mimikyu (Ghost/Fairy Type) lives its life constantly covered by its cloth. Mimikyu’s Disguise Ability allows it to escape danger from an enemy’s attack once, then its appearance changes.

Also announced is the Hyper Training function, which allows Pokemon that have hit Lv. 100 to increase individual strengths. From the press release: “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 Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon, players will be able to carry out Hyper Training on their Pokemon. The Mythical Pokemon Magearna, planned for distribution in Europe later, will be distributed with a Bottle Cap held item.”
