New Rare Pokemon Available in Pokemon Sun & Moon

New Rare Pokemon Available in Pokemon Sun & Moon

A new Pokémon is now available via Mystery Gift in Pokémon Sun and Moon in the United States, Europe, and Australia. Now, while in the game, go to any Pokémon Center and talk to the deliveryman, who will give you the shiny Tapu Koko. Tapu Koko is the first of the quartet that players encounter in-game, appearing just after defeating the Alola region's Elite Four for the first time. After the gift has been received by your game, you will need to go back to the main menu and select "Continue". Tapu Koko is an Electric/Fairy Pokemon with Electric Surge that fills the field around the Pokemon feet with electricity. Tapu Koko will also be holding the item Electric Seed, which boosts its holder's defense when there is Electric Terrain. So you can just add the rare pokemon in your list and use it in the battle with some electrical power. It can also learn a new move called Nature's madness that can slam into opponent and eats its HP by 50%.

Holing the Electrium Z will unlock the Gigavolt Havoc attack, dealing 160 base damage to other Pokemon Sun and Moon creatures.

The shiny version of Tapu Koko takes the Legendary's yellow shell-like arms and turns them black, making the shiny version of Tapu Koko pretty distinct!

You have until August 14 to acquire the Pokemon, so don't forget.
