Ultra Beasts, the Aether Foundation, and more
I was fine with the weird ass Eggexecutor but some of these recent Pokemon are something else.
Today Nintendo revealed a few more creatures in Sun & Moon, including Null the synthetic Pokemon, Jangmo-o, and an Alolan Raticate. You’ll also get a brief look at the Aether Foundation, which handles “Ultra Beast” research, and Dexio and Sina return from the last game to provide assistance in locating Zygarde.
Oddly, Pokemon Sun will run at the same time as your 3DS system clock, but Moon will run 12 hours off — there will be a day and night cycle to accommodate.
Type: Null is a Synthetic Pokémon which was constructed to synthesize the strengths of various Pokémon, making it adaptable enough to complete a mission that requires a Pokémon as strong as the Pokémon of mythology. The mask fitted to this Pokémon’s head is a piece of equipment designed to control its power. Type: Null is the partner Pokémon of a newly revealed character—Gladion, the taciturn enforcer of Team Skull, who places a high value on being strong in battle.
The Scaly Pokémon Jangmo-o has the pride of a warrior and never neglects its training in its pursuit of becoming stronger. This Pokémon uses the scales on its head as a weapon both offensively and defensively. It lives in harsh locales, like canyons, where it can train.
Raticate in Alola live in urban areas, leading to a higher-calorie diet than that of Raticate elsewhere. This means they have tough bodies but have gotten a lot fatter. They stockpile huge amounts of food in their nests and prefer fresh fruit and high-class ingredients. Alolan Raticate is the Totem Pokémon of the trial that takes place in Verdant Cavern on Melemele Island in Pokémon Moon.
