@DakeDekaane That's the Alola Form sandshrew which is Ice/Steel type. So I don't think you should be worried about immunites yet ;
Oh right, I forgot that.

btw, Alola Sandshdrew looks really cute in-game.

I couldn't agree more. I'm loving the alola Pokémon. Also while I'm here, there is talk about a possible Fire type Marowak because of the official pokemon page.

That'll be... something.

Apparently after reaching lvl100, pokemons will be able to still increase their stats. Does it mean the years of breeding to get perfectly stated pokemons is over or... ? That's a lot of time i wasted :?

I wonder if they are gonna keep the x/y/oras system for bonus statistics or make something even easier now

It depends how available bottle caps are. I'd still rather have my non legendaries bred though.

Heads up: the Volcanion distribution is finally happening this October for the rest of the world. North America will be via GameStop serial code cards; no clue for Europe, though. Also, here's the movie trailer for Volcanion and Magearna:

This. I doubt they'll be easy to acquire, so I imagine they are there to fix your almost perfect Pokemon to a perfect state, full of 31s. Also means lucky shiny hatchlings will see some competitive use.

Niantic posted an official letter to its players last night, explaining why they decided to implement the recent updates.

lol what.

Some of the stuff on here actually surprised me:

hmm yeah considering how hard it is to get shiny + max stats even by hatching, that's cool but sad at the same time because this was seen as a big achievement (happened like only twice to me in thousands of tries), seeing full shiny competitive teams is gonna be lame now. . .

a "leak" apparently. take it with a grain of salt

I'd quote an user from Smogon but it seems that any talk about baseless "leaks" get deleted until further reveal/evidence...

Anyway it was along the lines of "the leak was also posted on 4chan, but I doubt it's legitimate since the OP over there basically said "hey look I put the names of pokemon revealed in other leaks so what I say has to be true!". The guy most likely created those names after the actual revealed names and mixed in some made-up pokemon names to make it sound real"

I gotta say that's the leak I'm believing in the least for now. Until some of its predictions come true it's probably wise to put it aside.
Blazevoir
I honestly don't believe this list, but if at least two of those get announced this Friday (the next Sun/Moon news announcement), maybe then I'll start believing it.
Lanturn
Aye. I saw this yesterday but I don't really believe it. I do want the dolphin Pokemon though.

New CoroCoro scans on serebii.net

Dark-type Meowth, perhaps implying a Dark-type Persian? I'm so digging this.
Ghost/Fire-type Marowak (nice nod Game Freak)

New sandcastle-like critter, I like its looks. Its prevo, not so much.
New fish with an alternate, school form.

Bewear's prevo revealed, and uuh it's as meh as I think Bewear is.


I really do hope other gen's mons are also getting Alolan forms. Not that I have an issue with gen I per se, but it feels, idk, like a real commercial move to do considering it's Pokemon 20th anniversary.
Lanturn
and that list is already busted. gg. Thanks baby bewear.

Nice to see we got conformation on the Marowak as well.

Here's the full details for everything that was leaked today (via Serebii):
  1. The fish is Yowashi which is a Water-type and appears to have the ability to change its appearance from its Single Form into a larger fish, its School Form.
  2. The little sandcastle is called Sunabaa while the big one is called Shirodesuna. Both are Ghost/Ground-type. Sunabaa is a grudge that dwells inside a pile of sand turns into a Pokémon. Truly a terrifying creature. Shirodesuna steals the life force from other Pokémon. Those Pokémon's grudges turn into a new Sunaba.
  3. Pre-evolved Bewear is called Nuikoguma and remains Normal/Fighting. Nuikoguma is very popular among women and children and tops the lists of Pokémon people want to meet. It hates being touched and will kick and struggle to resist. It's very powerful, but once it evolves into Bewear it truly gains herculean strength.
  4. Alolan Meowth is Dark-type. It developed after being bred by the royal family of Alola.
  5. Alolan Marowak is Fire/Ghost-type. It developed in response to its natural predators in order to resist them.
  6. We also see the first bits of the antagonist team, Team Skull. Its boss is called Guzma and the girl is Plumeri.
  7. Next month's issue will contain a poster featuring Rockruff's "Secret Evolution".

So is it Ghost type because of Cubone's mom

I'd say based off of this, it was hunted to death and is now something similar to a vengeful spirit >.>;

It's not too farfetched because there have been worse Pokédex descriptions out there...
Lanturn
Looks like one more Corocoro leak.

From serebii of course.

Namakobushi: Said to be able to send its insides out from its mouth and use as a fist.



It's speculated to be a water/fighting type since a Namako is a Sea Cucumber and the Fist it sends out / Kobushi (means fist)

Kinda loving this thing already.
