  • Pokémon badge set

Pokémon Sun and Moon

On Saturday, the latest issue of the CoroCoro magazine will be released in Japan. As usual, it will feature brand new details about Pokémon Sun and Moon, releasing next month worldwide. And also as usual, leaked scans from the magazine allows us to get new details before it’s even released! As always, a big thank to Serebii for sharing those details in the first place.

NB: We will keep this post updated as new scans and details surface. Stay tuned!

In this issue of CoroCoro magazine, a new Pokémon is revealed: the Alolan variant of Grimmer. The Alolan Grimmer seems to be a Poison/Dark Pokémon.

Update 1: more details have leaked, but without new scans (so take with a grain of salt, though the source is the same as the one for the first scan below). It looks like Jangmo-o’s evolution is a Dragon/Fighting Pokémon. As for Type: Null, its evolution is apparently called Shilvadi (シルヴァディ). Thanks to its “AR System” Ability, its Type changes depending on the item it’s holding.

Here’s the one lone scan leaked so far:
