The Pokémon Company has officially unveiled the latest Mythical Pokémon coming to Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon! This new Pokémon is called Zeraora. It is known as the Thunderclap Pokémon, and is a pure Electric Type that resembles an anthropomorphic lynx.
A Myth Unknown?
Zeraora is somewhat unique among Mythical Pokémon as it will only be available in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, as opposed to the base Sun and Moon. This is due to the fact that Pokémon Ultra is the very first Generation to add in completely new Pokémon in the middle. Typically, when a new Generation begins, data-miners will find all the hidden Pokémon before their official reveal and subsequent release.
With Zeraora, the earliest one could have known of its existence was the data mine of Pokémon Ultra, meaning this is the first time since our childhood with Mew that truly there was more hidden. Maybe the eventual Pokémon Switch game will go the route of having full DLC Pokémon in order to sidestep the data mining altogether?
Regardless, there is still little known about this new Mythical Pokémon. Details on its abilities and how to obtain it will be known in the future.
