After the introduction of Pokemon Sun and Moon starters Litten, Rowlet, Popplio last month, two new Pokemon have just been revealed as the June issue of CoroCoro leaks.
The recent leak of the Japanese magazine’s latest issue was announced today by Serebii.net. The six images posted in the site include two new Pokemon with Japanese names, Nekkoala and Iwanako. Nekkoala is a Normal-type, half-awake Pokemon with the appearance of a koala and possesses the ability Definite Sleep which means no status can be inflicted on it other than sleep.
Remember that surprise Pokemon that was spotted on the Pokemon Sun and Moon Japanese trailer standing with its trainer? It’s definitely a dog-like Pokemon named Iwanako! Iwanako joins Lillipup and Growlithe with the classification of Puppy Pokemon. Rock-type Iwanako has the abilities of Keen Eye or Evil Spirit.
Pokemon Sun and Moon will be previewed in the Nintendo Treehouse livestream at next week’s E3. Nekkoala and Iwanako might have their English names by then. Expect more details about these new Pokemon in the E3 event as CoroCoro also teased that Iwanko as well as Pokemon Sun and Moon starters Litten, Rowlet, and Popplio are all hiding a secret.
Meanwhile, the Pokemon website announces that it will give out a Shiny Mewtwo to thank and congratulate players who participated in the Play! Pokemon event this year.
“Anyone who has earned at least one video game Play! Point during the 2016 season and is opted into the Play! Pokémon program before July 10, 2016, will receive an email in late July containing a code for Shiny Mewtwo. This is the first time players can get Mewtwo with its Hidden Ability, Unnerve, which prevents Mewtwo's opponent from eating a held Berry. Mewtwo is also holding the Mewtwonite Y Mega Stone, allowing it to Mega Evolve during battle.”
Mewtwo can be claimed by entering the code in any of these games: Pokemon Omega Ruby, Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, Pokemon X, and Pokemon Y. The code will automatically expire on August 21st of this year.
