The mysterious figure that was shown at the end of the latest Pokemon movie in Japan and the green blob that has recently been roaming around the internet now has an explanation. Pokemon has now release information regarding these two things and how they relate to Zygarde with the upcoming anime season in Japan.
It seems as if Zygarde has many components to it depending on how “complete” it is. Below is what Pokemon had to say about Zygarde and it’s many forms.
This stage has been identified as the single Cells that make up Zygarde. Cells do not possess any will or thought processes. They’re found scattered throughout the region. Since they can’t use any moves, researchers question whether they can even be called Pokémon!
At this stage, this aspect of Zygarde is little more than a part of the Pokémon’s brain. Unlike the Cells, the Cores are self-aware and can communicate with Cells and other Cores via telepathy. When a change occurs in the local region’s ecosystem, Cores have been known to take action.
Zygarde 10% Forme
Zygarde 10% is the Forme that the Zygarde Core takes when it gathers 10% of the Cells nearby. Capable of traveling over 60 mph (100 km/h), it defeats enemies with its sharp fangs and its incredible speed.
Zygarde 50% Forme
This Legendary Pokémon watches over and maintains the local ecosystem. Until recently, this was the only known Forme of Zygarde. In actuality, this Forme only has 50% of the Cells in its structure.
Zygarde Complete Forme
This is the perfect Forme that Zygarde takes when the Core gathers 100% of the Cells. When the ecosystem is under threat, and the Core concludes that the 50% Forme will be unable to deal with it, the Core takes on the Complete Forme. Its power is said to be greater than that of the Legendary Pokémon Xerneas and Yveltal!
It is interesting to note that the forms of Zygarde mirrors the evolution of a Pokemon. The Cell can be compared to Baby Pokemon. While the Core seem to be a higher evolution but still rather basic. Zygarde 10% Form has the look and feel of a middle stage Pokemon where it looks incomplete but can stand on it’s own. Zygarde 50% form looks to be a fully evolved Pokemon. Lastly, Zygarde Complete looks to be some kind of Mega Evolve Pokemon.
Either way, trainers will be seeing more about Zygarde in the upcoming anime season in Japan, Pokemon XY&Z. The new season of the anime will start on October 29th in Japan. It is unknown if the English dub will reflect this change in the title.
It was also reveal that Ash’s Greninja will take on a new form. Not much is known about this change but as of right now this form is called Ash-Greninja. Below is what Pokemon has to say about this interesting new change.
Plus, Ash’s Greninja takes on a mysterious new appearance in the latest season! Ash-Greninja is the form that Greninja takes when the bond between it and Ash is raised to the limit. The strength of their bond changes Greninja’s appearance, and it takes on the characteristic look of Ash’s attire. This phenomenon is also said to have happened just once several hundred years ago in the Kalos region, but it remains shrouded in mystery.
The Pokemon anime is going to undergo some interesting things within the next few months. Ash and his friends will face many great challenges with the introduction of Zygarde. Though, it looks as if Ash and his friends will be ready for them. Make sure to check back regularly for more updates about the anime!
