While many are eager to see what The Pokémon Company will do next with the Pokémon series on Nintendo Switch, the series’ developers are still actively supporting the latest entries on 3DS, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. Today, a brand new mythical Legendary Pokémon Zeraora was unveiled, and will be coming to Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon later this year.
Zeraora is known as the Thunderclap Pokémon, and as that nickname suggests, it is an Electric type. The Pokémon is 4’11 and weighs 98.1 pounds. According to the game’s developers, Zeraora increases its own power by sucking in energy from other places through the pads located on its hands an feet. While no abilities or stats were given for this new Pokémon at this time, the developers did say that its “maximum speed is the same as that of lightning strikes.”
Unfortunately, that’s just about all we know about Zeraora The Pokémon is tied to a new movie releasing in Japan this July, so we will likely learn more about it in the coming months. That being said, the developers did confirm that Zeraora will not be encountered by players during regular gameplay, so it will likely become available via an event.
Below, you can out the trailer introducing Zeraora and some official art of the Pokémon. Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are currently available on the Nintendo 3DS. If you want to try these games out for yourself, you can pick them up on Amazon.
