The first new Pokemon shown is Silvally, which evolves from Type: Null. It has a new ability called RKS System.

  • RKS System - Changes type to correspond with the item it is holding.

There are special items you can make Silvally hold, which is how it changes types with RKS System.

It also has a new move called Multi-Attack. This move changes types based on the item Silvally is holding.

Hackamo-o and Kommo-o - Dragon/Fighting Type

Hackamo-o evolves from Jangmo-o. Kommo-o evolves from Hackamo-o.

Both of these evolutions can have either the Bulletproof or Soundproof abilities, and they have a new move called Clanging Scales.

This looks to be this generation's Dragon evolution chain. This is a tradition that started in the original games with Dratini, Dragonair, and Dragonite.

Steenee and Tsareena - Grass Type

This is the evolved form of Cutiefly. There is not much added besides it being an evolution. It has the same abilities, either Honey Gather or Shield Dust, and had no new moves shown.

Alolan Grimer and Muk - Poison/Dark Type

These Alolan forms add a bit more color to these Pokemon, as well as the Dark type. 

The new forms store toxins within their body, so you won't smell unpleasant aromas when near them.

New Trainers


Olivia was shown as the Rock type trainer and Kahuna of Akala Island. Each island has a Kahuna that you must defeat in a Grand trial, which is similar to how Gyms were in previous games.


Ilima is Trial Captain that specializes in Normal type Pokemon. Trial Captains are trainers that complete trials recently and act as guides for your character.

That's everything that was recently revealed. Remember to check back at Gameskinny for the latest news and tips on Pokemon Sun and Moon when it launches on November 18th.
