A new Pokemon Sun and Moon trailer was released last week featuring the new antagonists of the games, more new Pokemon, and new Alola Pokemon forms.
The evil Team Skull has been revealed as the latest and greatest version of the classic Team Rocket.
But as these games progress, despite being an avid Pokemon master, (I completed the Pokedex in a week once because I had nothing better to do) I chuckle harder and harder at the ridiculousness of certain aspects. Take the new evil team for example. Team Skull? For real? Why not Team Femur? Actually, let's just take bones out all together, and call them Team Magic, and only give them Magikarps — the most useless Pokemon ever — because you're going to beat all of them anyway if you're playing the game well.
Also, the new evil team leaders are called Plumeria and Guzma which could totally be Pokemon names.
Back to reality, several new Pokemon have been revealed, including one called Wishiwashi. This cute little creature is a water-type fish Pokemon that has a new form called School Form. It can suddenly gather up dozens other little Wishiwashi to create a giant fish monster that belongs in Sharknado 4.
I was hoping Wishiwashi would transform into something like the school of fish seen halfway through the original Finding Nemo, but you can't get everything...
Next we have Pyukumuku, another water type that basically looks like brown and pink sea urchin that features a new ability, Innards Out, which lowers the attackers damage when it faints to what it had before the final blow was struck.
After that is the newest style of mushroom Pokemon, the grass/fairy-type Morelull. This raises the total number of mushroom Pokemon to 7. Other shroomy Pokemon include, Paras, Parasect, Shroomish, Breloom, Amoonguss and Foongus.
Three more Alola forms were revealed including a dark-type Meowth (it's literally just a sassier and shadier version), a fire/ghost-type Marowak (this one should've been a ghost-type from generation one anyway, you literally fight a dead Marowak in those games) and an electric/psychic Raichu (a tan? Really? Game Freak literally just gave it a tan with embarassing tan lines).
Alola forms were revealed in a previous trailer when they showed Exeggutor transformed into a palm tree from a six foot tall tree stump with leaves.
