Three new Pokémon have been revealed during the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2016, and Nintendo released more information regarding the two legendary types, Solgaleo and Lunala, and the mythical Pokémon, Magearna.

First up in the trailer is Yungoos, a loitering Pokémon that is based on the mongoose. According to the official "Pokémon Sun and Moon" website, Yungoos is never satisfied due to its quick digestion. Its abilities are Strong Jaw and a new ability called Stakeout, which allows it to "deal twice the normal damage to any Pokémon that switch in or enter the field mid-battle." It's also been revealed that the Pokémon is not native to the Alola region, but was only brought in to control the population of a certain Pokémon.

Next is a flying-type Pokémon called Pikipek. The doodpecker Pokémon can strike 16 times in a second with its fast beak, with each strike said to be powerful enough to shatter stone. Its abilities include Keen Eye and Skill Link. The Pikipek can attack its opponents by shooting seeds at them.

The third new Pokémon was not shown in Nintendo's E3 livestream, but was included in the trailer uploaded to the website soon after. Grubbin is a bug-type Pokémon that hangs around power plants and substations due to its love for electricity.

The website also revealed more information about the legendary Pokémon. Their basic details have already been covered in a previous report, but new information revealed that Solgaleo and Lunala have other forms, which are the Radiant Sun Phase and the Full Moon Phase, respectively. The two enter their new phases once they fire their signature attacks.

More information about the mythical Magearna has also been revealed. The "Pokémon Sun and Moon" website describes the Pokémon as having a Soul-Heart Ability that increases the stat of its Special Attack by one every time a Pokémon in the area faints.

As the official release date of "Pokémon Sun and Moon," which is on Nov. 18, 2016, nears, more Pokémon are expected to be unveiled.
