OMG, there’s new Pokemon in the world! The popular video game franchise made some big announcements at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, including three new Pokemon. Get all of the exciting details right here!
Pokemon fans, rejoice! There are some awesome new additions featured in the famed franchise’s latest games, Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon, and they were all revealed at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) on June 15. As if three new Pokemon aren’t enough to get fans riled up!
Perhaps the most exciting part of the new video games — the first Pokemon has released since 2013 — is the three new Pokemon that will enter the Pokeworld. The first to be introduced at E3 was Pikipek, a normal and flying type Pokémon that resembles a woodpecker, whose special abilities include “Keen Eye” and something called “Skilled Link.” The second, Yungoos, caused a Twitter frenzy over its Donald Trump-like appearance (see for yourself). Another normal-type Pokémon, Yungoos’ special abilities include “Stakeout” and “Strong Jaw.” The final new Pokemon is Grubbin, a bug type Pokémon resembling a hermit crab, which has one special ability, “Swarm.”
Along with the new Pokemon, another announcement that seems to be almost just as exciting is the new multiplayer mode feature, “Battle Royale.” This allows four trainers to face each other in a free-for-all battle with three Pokemon in their arsenal at a time. Plus, this is the first Pokemon game that will have Chinese as one of its language options, so even more people can join in the Pokefun! See some of the reactions to all of this awesome news below:
