Trial Captain Ilima
Ilima is a Trial Captain who uses Normal type Pokemon. This trainer has graduated from the Trainers’ School and is known as a hero to the students.

New Pokemon
Several new Pokemon were introduced that trainers who travel in the Alola region can meet!

Category: Synthetic Pokémon
Type: Normal
Ability: RKS System

Silvally is the evolved from of Type: Null. It has gain a few new tricks which includes the ability to change types and heighten attack power. It also seem to have gotten a few more similarities to a certain Mythical Pokemon.

Below is what Pokemon has to say about Silvally.

When Type: Null gains a partner it can trust, it deliberately destroys the restraining device it wears. Once released from that heavy mask, the Pokémon’s speed increases substantially. Freed of the restraining effects of its mask, Silvally’s senses are heightened, and it reverts to its natural temperament. It has a wild nature, but it will obey a Trainer that it trusts. And to protect that Trainer from danger, it will put its own life on the line. Silvally is said to have been created to oppose a threat…

By inserting exclusive items into the drive on Silvally’s head, its RKS System can be activated, causing Silvally’s somatic cells to mutate and glow. The RKS System enables it to change its type, and its cells glow with different colors of light, depending on its type.

Silvally’s Ability is called the RKS System Ability, which no previous Pokémon has ever had. By having Silvally hold items that correspond to each Pokémon type, it can change its own type. Multi-Attack is a move that only Silvally can learn, and this move’s type changes based on which type-related item Silvally is holding.

Category: Scaly Pokémon
Type: Dragon/Fighting
Ability: Bulletproof/Soundproof

Jangmo-o evolves from Hakamo-o and has gotten a Fighting typing. It seems to have gotten attributes of a Fighting type as it uses moves such as Sky Uppercut.

Here is what Pokemon has to say about Hakamo-o.

When a Jangmo-o evolves into Hakamo-o, it breaks from its fellows and begins to live on its own to train itself. Wherever it can find Pokémon to battle against, it seems to appear.

Hakamo-o dances before battle to show its strength, clanging its scales together to make them ring out. When this dance reaches its climax, Hakamo-o bellows a fierce war cry to challenge its opponent.

Its scales make for fine armor, so Hakamo-o doesn’t worry about self-defense as it makes multitudes of strikes and overwhelms its opponents. But, as a result, its scales often become damaged and get torn off. They grow back immediately, so this does not cause Hakamo-o undue concern. In fact, it views the number of lost scales as proof of how ferociously it has fought, and it brandishes its bared arms in a boast of victory.

Category: Scaly Pokémon
Type: Dragon/Fighting
Ability: Bulletproof/Soundproof

Kommo-o is the final evolution of Hakamo-o. It has gain quite a lot of power and looks as if it could be a Pokemon on the level of Dragonite and Metagross. Below is what Pokemon has to say about it.

At the end of its harsh training, Hakamo-o evolves into this overwhelmingly powerful form. It returns to the land of its birth, where it watches over the Jangmo-o from a distance.

There is a legend that says Kommo-o is covered in glittering scales in order to drive away a great darkness covering the world. The reason these Pokémon seek out battle is to gain the power needed to defeat this darkness. When it detects someone approaching, this Pokémon rings the scales on its tail to announce its presence. It has no desire to battle against weak Pokémon.

Kommo-o’s greatest move is the uppercut. It swings its arm up from below in a punch of great skill and force, sending its foe flying into the sky. By raising its arms aloft, it can generate a force powerful enough to change the face of the surrounding landscape!

Clanging Scales is a move that only Kommo-o can learn. It scrapes the scales covering its body against one another, attacking with a great clamor. After using this move, Kommo-o’s Defense is lowered.

Category: Bee Fly Pokémon
Type: Bug/Fairy
Ability: Honey Gather/Shield Dust

Ribombee is a friendly Pokemon that evolves from Cutiefly. These two Pokemon look to be fine weather Pokemon that loves sunny days.

Below is what Pokemon has to say about Ribombee.

Ribombee collect flower nectar and pollen to make into balls known as Pollen Puffs. These serve as food, and what’s more, they also can cause effects like paralysis or dizziness. Ribombee may use puffs to strike their opponents during battles. Some of the Pollen Puffs that Ribombee make also have relaxing effects or can relieve tiredness. These are distributed around the Alola region as high-priced supplements.

Ribombee hate getting rained on. They’re covered with fluffy hairs that hold the pollen they’ve gathered, and the rain makes them wet and dirty. Alolan people know that if Ribombee are busily visiting the fields of flowers, you can be sure that the fair weather will continue.

Category: Fruit Pokémon
Type: Grass
Ability: Leaf Guard/Oblivious

Steenee is the evolution of Bounsweet and it has gotten a confidence boost thanks to it’s hard head.

Read below for more about Steenee.

The calyx on Steenee’s head is harder than Bounsweet’s, so Steenee no longer worries about being stabbed by other Pokémon. As Bounsweet, this Pokémon may have preferred to run away from others, but now Steenee and other Pokémon can play together.

Upon evolving, this Pokémon’s fragrance becomes even more delectable, but it also gains a tomboy-like personality. Living together with one is quite the ordeal. As it moves around, it spins its calyx, striking nearby objects, but Steenee couldn’t care less.

Steenee unleashes combo moves using the calyx on its head and its hard legs. First it smacks opponents with the calyx on its head, and when the opponent flinches, it lands a whacking great kick. That usually does the trick!

Category: Fruit Pokémon
Type: Grass
Ability: Leaf Guard/Queenly Majesty

Tsareenna is the final evolution of Bounsweet and it has gain a royal attitude. This can be seen it Tsareenna’s ability and how it compose itself around others.

Read more below!

Tsareena has the nature of high-class nobility. Any Pokémon or human that approaches it with evil in mind will be punished forthwith. It even turns its fearsome glare upon its own Trainer if the two of them are not fully in sync, or if its Trainer orders it to use a move that will be ineffective. Only the strongest of Steenee are able to evolve. When this happens, the Steenee evolves with the blessing of other Steenee. It then uses its strength to protect the Bounsweet.

Tsareena is a high-kicking virtuoso. It has honed these skills beyond the level it achieved as a Steenee, and it attacks with graceful movements. At the same time, its fragrance mesmerizes its opponents, dealing them a secondary attack. Trop Kick is a move that only Tsareena can learn. It lowers an opponent’s Attack by showering it with blazing hot kicks in a style similar to that originating from tropical countries. It’s said that this Pokémon loses its strength if touched on the crown-like protuberance on its head.

New Alola Forms
A few new Pokemon have gotten some Alola forms!

Alolan Grimer
Category: Sludge Pokémon
Type: Poison/Dark
Ability: Poison Touch/Gluttony

Sometimes you can only be surprise at how gross some Pokemon can become. Apparently Grimer is one of those as Alola has not only found a use for the Sludge Pokemon but also made it sound worst.

Read below on how Alolan Grimer came to be.

When the population of the Alola region increased, dealing with their garbage became a serious problem. As a solution, Grimer were imported from other regions. They fed primarily on garbage, so their body composition changed—as did their form. What appear to be teeth in this Pokémon’s mouth are in fact residual toxins from the garbage it eats, which have hardened and crystallized. No method has been discovered to break down these crystals. Direct contact with them presents a danger.

Alolan Grimer is always eating garbage, but its constant hunger will cause it to begin eating other manufactured objects if it runs out of garbage to feed on. There are more than a hundred Alolan Grimer in Alola’s garbage-processing plants, and all of the garbage produced in the Alola region is taken for use as their food.


Alolan Muk
Category: Sludge Pokémon
Type: Poison/Dark
Ability: Poison Touch/Gluttony

Muk is another Pokemon who has changed due to the Alola region. This Pokemon seems to have gotten worst due to all of the trash it has eaten. Read below to find out how.

Alolan Muk eats whatever is in reach without pausing, and if it feels the sharp pangs of hunger, it runs amuck. It’s thought that its voracious appetite stems from an inability to maintain its energy levels without a constant influx of toxins. Toxins have accumulated in Alolan Muk’s body from its steady diet of various waste products and manufactured materials. This accumulation has brought about a chemical change, producing a new kind of toxin.

Alolan Muk has the same poisonous crystals as Alolan Grimer, but they’re not limited to its mouth—they extend from all over the surface of its body. Alolan Muk uses them to attack, just like other Pokémon use their fangs or claws. And these highly toxic crystals are easily knocked loose, making them extraordinarily dangerous!

The Grimer and Muk in the Alola region produce and store their toxins within their bodies. So, unlike the Grimer and Muk in other regions, you won’t detect any unpleasant aromas when you draw near one.
