Posted on /vp/, legit as they even posted a webM of the trailer. Showcases the fish and sea cucumber Pokemon from CoroCoro plus a new mushroom Pokemon and an Alolan Raichu. Note the Chinese leak from a few weeks ago (look up my thread on it) first mentioned a new mushroom and sea cucumber Pokemon in addition to
a dolphin, a snowman, and a "rugby monkey"

Is he supposed to be riding his tail like a surf board?

Always been a big fan of Raichu, not feeling this.

Though it's not like I'm going to play this anyway.

I guess the Chinese leak is real.

I look forward to Green Arrow Rowlet & Ash Greninja.

I don't care much for the Raichu design, but the fact that they've remembered it exists is nice.

My issue is there are waaay too many small bulbous pokemon shown. I feel like that's the majority of the revealed S&M creatures

So I'm guessing this Raichu will be on Hau's team.

This will probably be one of the first Pokemon I try out competitively besides the psuedo legend and Ninetales.

This is Pokémon. We're all being silly.

I don't know what other Pokémon have Alolan formes, though, because other threads regarding this subject have been respectful to people who are on media blackout.

Is it really too much to ask for the word "Raichu" to be removed from the thread title?

I know of at least one more Gaffer who'll casually stumble upon this thread's title and have the surprise ruined for him.

You were going to know it was in the game before you played it anyways.
Thanks, Nostradamus.

You can't expect people to not mention things that TPC wants them to know about pre-release. That's like you getting mad that someone mentions that you're the leader of a band of thieves in Persona 5.

You're not on a media blackout if you're on the internet, let alone a gaming forum and had it truly been that big of a deal to you you could've/shouldve stopped reading at "Pokémon"
