While Niantic is slowly rolling out Pokémon Go to many countries across the globe, the latest issue of Japanese magazine CoroCoro reveals two brand new Pokémon. Rumors around the internet claim the two weird Pokemons might also appear on Pokemon Go. Now, here's the latest round up of update about Pokémon Sun and Moon release date, starter and price.
The new pocket monsters are death-hug bear Kiteruguma and spooky Mimikkyu, which are some of the strangest species yet. They don't have English names as now, but both are expected to appear on Pokémon Sun and Moon for 3DS.

Kiteruguma is the new Pokemon on the left side. It is a Normal/Fighting type monster who likes to hug trainers. However, it has sheer strength and can break anything in two.
On other hand, the Pokémon on the right is Mimikkyu. At first, it looks like a dead Pikachu in Halloween costume. But the Pokémon Company says it is actually a Ghost/Fairy Pokémon that constantly hides beneath a cloth. A report from Serbii says Mimitsukiyu hates sunlight and prefers dark places. It wears Pikachu-like cloth to avoid the sun. It is rumoured that those who tried to remove the cloth become afflicted with terrible illness.
Interestingly, several tech websites suggest Mimitsukiyu might also appear on augmented reality game Pokemon Go. Based on her characteristics, many gamers say Mimitsukiyu would appear on Pokemon Go during night time.
Mimitsukiyu and Kiteruguma were also featured on the latest trailer of Pokémon Sun and Moon. Alongside with new Pokémon, it revealed the upcoming modes of the 3DS game. Players should expect the return of Pokémon Amie, the touchscreen-based feature from Pokémon X and Y that allowed players to interact with their pets. In addition, there will be new Battle Royal mode, which was first introduced during Nintendo's E3 2016 livestream. This multiplayer mode allows players to pit their Pokémon against other trainers.
For more Pokemon News, the Pokemon Company unveiled earlier this month the first Poison and Fire Type monster named Salandit. This new monster comes with a brand new Ability called Corrosion, which can inflict Poison to other Poison-type and Steel-type Pokémon. Normally, Poison and Steel types are immune from the effects of Poison.
Pokémon Sun and Moon will be released on November 18, 2016 for Nintendo 3DS. We expect more pocket monsters will be revealed in the next months to come, so stay tuned for more update.
While waiting for Pokémon Sun and Moon, gamers should check out the newest mobile game of Pokémon, the Pokémon Go. It is now available on Australia, United States, New Zealand and Germany.
