Pokémon Sun and Moon trailer dripfeeds yet more Alolan forms

Muk ado about nothing.

Pokémon Sun and Moon's latest trailer has revealed a couple more Alolan forms for classic Kanto Pokémon.

The video below shows gooey duo Grimer and Muk in their fresher, more colourful, tropical guises.

But that's not all - among the dollops of new detail, there's a drip feed of entirely new Pokémon Sun and Moon critters.

Most interesting is Silvally, the evolution of the curiously-named Type: Null. Synthetically made, Silvally has the ability to change its type and attack to any of the in-game types such as Fire, Water, Fairy, Ghost etc. when holding specific items. Previously, only God-Pokémon Arceus had the ability to do this.
