Nintendo E3 2016 Reveals: 3 New Pokemon And Battle Royal Mode For Pokemon Sun And Moon!

The E3 2016 kicked off yesterday with a live gameplay demo of Pokemon Sun and Moon via Nintendo Treehouse. Nintendo’s presentation for the upcoming Pokemon game revealed three new Pokemon:  Yungoos, Pikipek, and Grubbin as well as a new Multiplayer mode called “Battle Royal.”

Gematsu wrote that Yungoos, the Loitering Pokemon, has a Stakeout Ability that double the normal damage dealt to any Pokemon that the player switched in the field in the middle of the battle. This Pokemon is usually seen in the Alola Region, making it easy to capture. But, Yungoos has a horrible temper when hungry thus, it needs to be feed often with a massive amount of food.

 

Woodpecker Pokemon Pikipek has the Keen Eye and Skill Link Ability and Normal/Flying Type. Its beak is so powerful that it can drill holes into hard wood and shatter stones with its blows. Pikipek zip seeds to its distant opponents with a force strong enough to push the seeds inside the tree trunks.

Bug Type Grubbin on the other hand possesses the Swarm Ability and usually inhabits power plants and substations because it loves electricity. This Larva Pokemon depends on its sturdy jaw during battles and uses it to burrow through the earth.
