Pokémon Ultra Sun and Moon's latest trailer makes it clear, once again, that Mimikyu is not only the saddest but creepiest Pokémon in the franchise.

We are exactly a week away from the launch of the next annual Pokémon iteraltions, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon. And to celebrate that upcoming arrival, Nintendo has released a brand new trailer focusing on the objectively creepiest Pokémon of the bunch: Mimikyu.

For those out of the loop, Mimikyu is a Ghost/Fairy type Pokémon that has an unnatural bent to it. While the Pokémon takes on the form of a dead-eyed, poorly-created Halloween costume version of Pikachu, the real being is underneath the decorated rag. While the canon states that Mimikyu’s are injured by sunlight, its reason of taking on another Pokémon’s persona is due to its loneliness.

But as sad as that may sound, the creature is still something out of nightmares.

Anyway, the latest trailer for Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon focus on Mimikyu’s newly added Z-Move. Z-Moves are those over-powered abilities added to the original Pokémon Sun and Moon, limited to a select group of the more popular Pokémon in the group like starters, Charizard and the like.

Mimikyu’s Z-Move, seen in the video below, is titled “Let’s Snuggle Forever!” Darting from tree-top to tree-top, Mimikyu stalks their opponent, launches at them, and fully encapsulates them with the tattered rag. After a struggle goes on underneath the sheets the enemy’s attack steeply drops.

In recent Pokémon news, last month it was reported that the new annual iterations will be 13% larger in file size when compared to the original Sun and Moon games. Not only that, but an official Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon dual pack was revealed in late-August, offering both the games in one package and a boost of 200 Pokéballs,

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon are available exclusively for Nintendo 3DS beginning next week, November 17, 2017. Check out the teaser below:
