on August 11, 2016 10:27 AM

Game Freak has just released a new trailer for Pokémon Sun and Moon showcasing the new Pokémon and the evil Team Skull that were recently revealed in CoroCoro leaks.

The video starts out by showing Wishiwashi, a Water type with the new ability Schooling. While normally weak in its Solo Form, under certain conditions that have yet to be revealed, it can transform into its School Form, which is much more powerful.

Next another Water type named Pyukumuku was revealed. This Pokémon also has an all new ability called Innards Out, which activates when it is knocked out and deals damage equal to the amount of HP it had before fainting.

The last new Pokémon that was revealed is a Grass/Fairy type named Morelull, who has the abilities Illuminate and Effect Spore.

The trailer then introduces Team Skull. Team Skull Admin Plumeria and Boss Guzma were also revealed. Plumeria is the “big sister” of the team, while Guzma leads the group and holds the whole team together. The following description was given for the team:

In the Alola region, a group of ruffians known as Team Skull causes a lot of trouble. They steal other people’s Pokémon, mess up the trial sites, and delight in all kinds of evil deeds.

Finally, three new Alolan Forms were revealed for Meowth, Marowak, and Raichu. Alolan Raichu has the new ability Surge Surfer, which doubles its speed when Electric Terrain is active.

Alolan Meowth
Type: Dark
Meowth is a Pokémon that did not originally live in the Alola region. They were sent to the royal family of Alola as an offering from another region, and only a select few could have them as partners. It’s said that the Meowth that were offered to the royalty lived a life of luxury and pampering, which led them to have a selfish and prideful attitude. This caused Meowth’s form to change.

Alolan Marowak
Type: Fire/Ghost
The Marowak in the Alola region take bones and light both ends on fire by rubbing them against their foreheads. Then they spin the bones around! Marowak’s rarity and its fearsome appearance when it dances with its bone led the people of Alola to dub it a conjurer and regard it with fear.

Alolan Raichu
Type: Electric/Psychic
The Raichu in Alola have two types—Electric and Psychic—and they are able to wield psychic power. What’s more, they can gather their psychic power in their tails and then ride on them to float in the air!

You can look at some character and Pokémon art and watch the trailer below. Pokémon Sun and Moon releases for the Nintendo 3DS on November 18.
