Here’s a More Detailed Look at the NINE New Pokémon

Following yesterday’s Pokémon related leak, which Nintendo then confirmed by releasing a Japanese trailer, we now have the official stats of the seven new Pokémon as well as an English trailer. Oh, and did I mention there were two more Pokémon added to the mix?

Today the Pokémon Company confirmed the seven new Pokémon that were announced yesterday with some official images of the questionable creatures as well as biographies and stats, in addition two more Pokémon were also revealed, Tapu Koko and Komala.

Since their announcement the Internet was awash with mixed reactions, with some loving the new additions, and others… not so much. Hopefully now we have more information about the seven, those who previously disliked them may hopefully warm to them, a little.

Here’s that trailer again:
