Pokémon Sun and Moon

The other day, a new Pokémon was spotted on the box of the latest Pokémon TCG set in Japan. And today, it’s a new Alolan Form that was “revealed” in a similar fashion, via the cover of the Pokémon Sun and Moon: Official Guidebook – Alola Region Pokédex (releasing on December 14th in Japan).

The new Alolan Form is none other than Alolan Persian, which shouldn’t come as a surprise since Alolan Meowth was previously revealed. However, that’s pretty much all we know about it for know!
