This Pokémon wearing a mask has been dubbed “Null,” meaning nothing.
The shapes of its front and hind legs are clearly different. The reason is that Type: Null was constructed to synthesize the strengths of various Pokémon, enabling it to adapt to any situation.
The mask fitted to Type: Null’s head is a piece of equipment designed to control its latent powers. It’s extremely heavy, so it also serves to hinder Type: Null’s agility.
To complete a certain mission, there was need of a Pokémon powerful enough to rival those Pokémon often spoken of in mythology.
CATEGORY: Scaly Pokémon
WEIGHT: 65.5 lbs.
Jangmo-o has the pride of a warrior, although it remains humble about its capabilities. In its pursuit to become stronger, it never neglects its training.
Because Jangmo-o uses the scales on its head for both offense and defense, it never turns its back to its enemies. Many Trainers see this behavior and take it as proof that Jangmo-o is a valiant Pokémon.
Jangmo-o gather in harsh locales like canyons, where no other people or Pokémon are around, to live together as they train.
CATEGORY: Mouse Pokémon
WEIGHT: 56.2 lbs.
Because urban areas are their main habitat, their diet is higher in calories than ordinary Raticate. As a result, they have become hefty.
Alolan Raticate prefers to eat only fresh fruits and high-class ingredients. There are rumors that a certain top-notch restaurant takes advantage of Alolan Raticate’s taste buds by bringing it along when choosing ingredients to buy, and having it taste test new dishes.
Alolan Raticate continually stockpile huge amounts of food in their nests. They mostly prefer to send out Alolan Rattata to gather food while they themselves stay home in their nests and just eat.
Alolan Raticate is the Totem Pokémon of the trial that takes place in Verdant Cavern on Melemele Island in Pokémon Moon.* It summons Rattata to help it confront those who take on the trial.
*Gumshoos appears as the Totem Pokémon in Verdant Cavern in Pokémon Sun.
UB-01’s body is composed of a glass-like substance. However, it’s constantly changing shapes, never settling on one.
While evidence of something like a survival instinct can be observed in UB-01, no one knows whether it has a will of its own or any emotions. It’s said that, for some reason, its movements resemble those of a young girl.
A new group called Aether Foundation is also introduced. The Aether Foundation is an organization to protect and care for Pokémon. It is established on Aether Paradise, an artificial island located in the middle of Alola region. It is led by Lusamine. Other Aether Foundation members are Branch Chiefs Wicke and Faba.
A new Team Skull member made it’s appearance, Gladion. Currently not much is known about him except for the fact that his partner is Type:Null.
Characters from Pokémon X & Y, Dexio and Sina, will also return and introduce players to a Zygarde related quest, where players hunt Zygarde Cells and Core with the help of a Zygarde Cube.
The new feature to be revealed is Poké Finder. It is a mini game where players can take pictures of Pokémon with Rotom Dex. The better the picture, the more points player can earn, unlocking new features like zooming.
