In this video we see a few new Pokemon for Sun and Moon. Wimpod looks like a Pokemon form of a Giant Isopod which is pretty sweet. There is a running joke among artists on my twitter circle of getting a ride able Isopod in World of Warcraft.
Next we’ve got Bounsweet which is just stupid adorable. Joining a long lineage of “adorable tiny plant pokemon.” Honestly, not much else to add for that dude.
I do honestly wonder if Comfey is a distant relative of Klefki. Much like how Pidgey and Pidove are two divisions from a common pigeon ancestor. I won’t ultimately be surprised if that turns out to not be the case, but I will be a tiny bit disappointed.
I’m not super hot on Mudsdale but he’s not a bad design to me. The sliced clay look of his mane reminds me a lot of my own time working with pottery. That said, I feel like he kinda gets outshined by the rest of the Pokemon in this video.
Mimikyu just…goddamn. Look at this thing? This has got to be one of my favorite designs in generations. The 3D animations I’ve seen of it thus far all look great and I love that it’s eyes glow with a devilish shimmer whenever its up to no good.
Look at this thing! It’s name is Bewear and the pun seems pretty spot on. I’m unclear on whether or not it is wearing a suit at the moment or not. The magazine coverage for this shows it shattering a tree trunk with a single hug…so I might be hesitant to cuddle with it.
So yeah, the obvious star for me is Mimikyu but I like all of them. Thus far none of the reveals for Sun and Moon have really worried me.
