Scans of the upcoming issue of the CoroCoro magazine have leaked early on japanese boards once again showing more Generation V Pokémon! The 7 new Pokémon we can see for the time being are:

  • Chiraamii [チラーミィ], the Chinchilla Pokémon. It’s a Normal-type, mouse-like Pokémon. It has the Cute Charm and Technician abilities and a new move called Sweep Slap [スイープビンタ] which hits the opponent several times, probably like Fury Swipes. It has a height of 0.4m and a weight of 5.8kg.
  • Gear [ギアル], the Gear Pokémon, which is a Steel-type that looks like two, eeeer…, gears. It has the Plus and Minus abilities and a new move called Gear Saucer [ギアソーサー]. It has a height of 0.3m and a weight of 21kg.
  • Munna [ムンナ], the Dream Eater Pokémon. It’s a Psychic-type, pig-like Pokémon. It has the Forewarn and Synchronize abilities as well as a new move called Telekinesis [テレキネシス]. It has a height of 0.6m and a weight of 23.3kg.
  • Mamepato [マメパト], the Baby Pigeon Pokémon. It looks like the generic Normal/Flying-type Pokémon of this generation. It has the Super Luck and the new Pigeon Heart [はとむね] abilities. It has a height of 0.3m and a weight of 2.1kg.
