Woo! Was right about Bounsweet evolving twice :D I really like both designs to. The last evo reminds me of Tsunade from Naruto kinda. Don't think a lot of people will know how to pronounce it's name if they haven't watched animes.

I actually really love Alolan Muk, but I don't get the dark typing at all. However, Muk proves that those were not teeth on Grimer, which most though. It is trash that has gotten stuck,

Wow, Alola Muk looks super odd! I like the way its color scheme "moves" when it's in battle, but that's an odd design '-' Not a huge fan of it, but it's good!

I don't have to much to say about Silvally (what a strange name '-') and Jangmo-o's evolutions. It's nice to see their unique moves, such as Multi-Attack (for Type:Null's evolution) and Clanging Scales (for Kommo-o).

Bounsweet's evolution looks ADORABLE OMG. Especially its middle stage form *-* Tsareena looks kind of weird though '-' I like them nonetheless. I'd like to know what does Queenly Majesty (is Tsareena supposed to represent a queen or princess? Something like Vespiqueen?) do? I like the animation of its unique move though ^^ I wouldn't mind using it, but I'm going with Lurantis *-*

So they finally announced Cutiefly's evo, Ribombee. I don't think this thing is going to evolve, since they revealed, in this trailer, the full evolution line of some Pokémon, so yeah...

I like the new characters! I love Olivia's design, and it's great to see a female Kahuna.
Ilima is the normal-type Trial Captain then. Is he/she a boy or a girl? I'm kind of confused @[email protected]

Won't be able to watch the trailer until later but I am in love with Bounsweet's evolution from the preview!

lol rainbow muk

But another ability that negates priority moves?

And the similarities between Type Null, Silvally, and Arceus make me more curious about it....

It looks like there's more than just the initial 4 Kahunas. If we were to count that, we get 6 already. What if... there's actually 2 more, just like the usual Gym Leader system?

By the way, I'm intrigued with the Queenly Majesty ability. Does it disables/blocks any move used by the foe on the first turn it's sent out or switched in? Or maybe when Tsareena is sent out or switched in? Or probably something else like blocking priority?

The English website makes it fairly clear that there are only 4 Kahunas, one per island. There may be one on a later island, but from what we know, there is only 4. I don't think the center island will have one. We do have 5 Trial Captains though, which are different from the Kahunas.

Just saw these, a bigger update then I expected. We got another full 3 stage line detailed which was nice. The evolutions to bounsweet are neat, surprised by pure grass typing though. I like Alolan Muk better then Grimer though.

And it's odd we haven't seen Alolan Persian yet.

Silvally's name is a bit silly if you ask me. Silvadi sounds a bit more badass. But it's not as ridiculous as Type: Null.

Hakamo-o and Kommo-o look very cool, and I have a feeling this'll be Alola's pseudo-legendary. Although I would've kept the name Jararanga for the last evo.

Bounsweet's evolutions look very nice. I didn't want Bounsweet at first, but these gals could make me change my mind. Although they would've made great counterparts for the Fomantis line if Bounsweet didn't exist, and Queenly Majesty seems to be a Dazzling clone.

Ribombee... meh...

So Alola Grimer and Muk get Bite and Crunch? I think they should get Knock Off too!

A very good reveal for me here:

Alohan Muk looks a lot better in Alohan form than it's regular form. Dark typing makes next to no sense but credit to the designers for giving a new lease of life to a much forgotten Pokemon.

Tsareena may well be my favourite Alohan Pokemon revealed so far. I like the elegance of the design of it and the lore saying it is a Queen is a nice touch. She has a little crown on her head similar to Lilligant. Are the two connected somehow? I am also curious as to how it evolves into its final form.

It's is slightly disappointing Tsareena is pure Grass Type similar to Bellossom, Lilligant and Lurantis. I can see myself using both.

Cutiefly's evolution looks cute too.

Speaking of Silvally's name....I thought that they might have gone with something more robotic sounding like Type: Null

By the way, I'm intrigued with the Queenly Majesty ability. Does it disables/blocks any move used by the foe on the first turn it's sent out or switched in? Or maybe when Tsareena is sent out or switched in? Or probably something else like blocking priority?
It appears to block priority, like Bruxish's ability Dazzling does.

Game Freak must really have come to hate Talonflame or something, giving a Water type and then a Grass type an anti-priority ability, as well as a Rock type with a priority Rock attack lol

Tsareena has definitely made it on my team fabulous! Gonna pair it with my Ampharos and Aromatisse. That team is gonna eliminate with pure elegance.

Kommo-o looks totally cool in-game. He looks triumphed through rigorous training.

Rainbow Muk just makes want to ask more questions about it, but I love it. It must've mix it' polluted body with all the gems in Alola? I oddly love it.

I think it's said like the Russian word for Queen. Which is likely the inspiration for the name.

I wonder if Silvally is even the final. I'm getting a bronze, silver vibe from Null and Silvally so I wonder if a golden might exist. Maybe Type: Null will be a pseudo not only in it's lore.

My initial opinions are that

- Silvally still looks awesome and I can't wait to make it pink with the fairy item.
- Jangmo-o's evolutions look better as in game models imo.
- Steenee is really cute, but Tsareena is a bit meh, I think this might be a rare case of the first stage pokémon being the best in an evolution line.
- Ribombee is just pure forgettable.
- Muk is actually awesome rocking the rainbow colours. It makes Grimer's alolan form look slightly less disappointing.

Or they must have noticed so many fans complaining about Talonflame. Although I think Mega Blaziken, Mega Lucario, and Landorus could use nerfs too.

Those two quotes are legit then, since I don't check the official website too much so I'm often kinda not catching up with most new things aside from the news here.

RIP Talonflame usage once Smogon do their work on analyzing it.

It is possible. I was also starting to think this when I was watching the trailer, but Silvally is already taller than 7'. That would be one huge pokemon.

It is said to rival a threat and a myth, so that make me believe that Type: Null may indeed be a pseudo. It went the opposite way for Jangmo-o's line. I am starting to think it isn't because the last evo is only about 5'

Well, no CoroCoro exclusive this time around because they all got shown in this.

First, Jangmo-o evolutions Hakamo-o and Kommo-o. Interesting that Kommo-o gets a signature move because I don't think pseudo-legends (or at least it's assumed to be) never had a true signature move. 4x weakness to Fairy is the main downside, but Soundproof could give it decent competitive use if it's able to block Pixilated Hyper Voices.

Now Silvally... It does retain pretty much the default typing of Type: Null and the new RKS System ability which is pretty much a clone of Arceus' Multitype seems to fit with theories that it was created to try and be a clone of Arceus. Maybe Arceus is pronounced "ar-kee-us" like I never expected.

Cutiefly's evolution that we saw for a split moment in a Japanese trailer is finally revealed! And I definitely like the name Ribombee as well, because it's so adorable. The official site says it is only 0'08" tall, which is pretty much the same size as Diglett. Tiny!

Bounsweet evolutions look adorable as well. Steenee is cute with not much new to it, but then we have Tsareena with the Queenly Majesty ability, which is pretty much exactly like Bruxish's Dazzling ability - because it blocks priority moves like Dazzling does. Guess that makes me preferably want an Oblivious Bounsweet then, since it eventually becomes Queenly Majesty. But I guess this confirms Bounsweet will be the Grass-type that earned a team slot for me here.

Alolan Grimer... and Muk! I actually like how wild Alolan Muk looks, and nice we finally get confirmation of their abilities. Gluttony feels like it doesn't make sense but Poison Touch could be good with running a non-Poison physical attack. At least Muk's design makes up for the initial lacklusterless of Grimer's. Apparently their adaption was caused by eating garbage based on what I read.

Olivia looks very cool, and it's nice we finally got Ilima's type specialty. Normal was not what I was expecting, but then again, she's the first Trial Captain so I guess they wanted her to be very basic.

Article is updated with a bunch of info from the website, and official art. Check it out, point out stuff I missed, etc!

ddrox13 also raised that Mega Kangaskhan has been nerfed a bit with Parental Bond's second attack doing less damage.
