The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo today revealed new details for the upcoming games Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon.
The Ghost- and Fairy-type Pokémon Mimikyu was first discovered in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. There are many mysteries surrounding this Pokémon, which lives its entire life hidden beneath a rag. Because of its desire to get closer to people, Mimikyu began to disguise itself as a popular Pokémon—Pikachu. Mimikyu can manipulate its rag so the cloth takes on the shape or design Mimikyu imagines, and it will protect Mimikyu from an enemy attack—but only once.
Now, in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, Mimikyu will have a Fairy-type Z-Move, Let’s Snuggle Forever, if Mimikyu knows the move Play Rough and is given a piece of the Z-Crystal Mimikium Z to hold. Up until now, Mimikyu’s Play Rough could only be powered up into the Z-Move Twinkle Tackle if Mimikyu was holding a piece of Fairium Z. Thanks to the addition of the new Mimikium Z, the Let’s Snuggle Forever Z-Move that can also be unleashed in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon is very powerful and even outshines Twinkle Tackle.
