Snuggle Your Foes Eternally in Pokemon Ultra Sequels
Mimikyu was described in the Pokemon Sun’s Pokedex as “Its actual appearance is unknown. A scholar who saw what was under its rag was overwhelmed by terror and died from the shock.” This Pikachu cosplayer wears a cloth over its true shadowy self. In Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, we get a little peek at its true form in its Z-Move.
Playing up the creepiness, Mimikyu’s “Let’s Snuggle Forever!” has the Pokemon drape its cloth over its poor opponent for “tough love”. In the trailer below, we see what looks like Pennywise’s deadlights under its cloth too! In the show’s anime, Jessie’s Mimikyu is shown to intensely hate Pikachu and even joins Team Rocket to attack Ash’s PIkachu.
In the vanilla Pokemon Sun and Moon, Mimikyu’s Play Rough could be powered up into the Z-Move Twinkle Tackle if the creature was holding a piece of Fairium Z. While this Z-Move was strong, The Pokemon Company, describes Mimikyu’s new Z-Move here as more powerful and “outshines even Twinkle Tackle.”
Get your eternal snuggle on with Mimikyu when Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon launches worldwide for 3DS on November 17.
