Meet Meloetta, Your Newest Pokemon

on March 1, 2012 6:15 PM

Nintendo today announced the latest entry in the National Pokedex: Meloetta. The genderless monster has two different forms, one that makes it a Normal/Psychic type and another that changes it to a dual Normal/Fighting. Influenced by a musical motif, the forms are known as its Pirouette and Aria incarnations, respectively. That and the thing looks like a musical note with hair resembling sheet music.

This is the third monster announced since the reveal of Pokemon Black 2 and White 2, following the Black and White Kyurems. This makes it No. 648 in the Pokedex. Most genderless Pokemon are legendaries, with a few exceptions. So does this mean Black 2 and White 2 will pile on more legendary creatures or is this one of many new monsters we’ll see when the games release later this year?
