New Pokémon Announced: #807 – Zeraora

Zeraora

A new Pokémon has been announced and it’s an all Electric type. Zeraora is a Mythical Pokémon and not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon. It was announced today on Japanese TV show Oha Suta and comes with its own signature move, Plasma Fists. It’s Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon exclusive and Plasma Fists has 100 Base Power and changes all Normal-type moves into Electric-type, including status moves. Base stats wise, it has 600 in total with most going to Speed (naturally) and Attack is 10 points ahead of Special Attack (112 vs 102) which make sense given the face Plasma Fists is a Physical move, along with 62.5% of its learnset (4 of the 10 Physical moves are STAB).

In terms of looks, I think it’s cool. Not colossal or beastly but fun; in the vein of Blaziken or Lucario. The blue touches also remind me of Manectric, another pure Electric type. We’ll see how it goes in the metagame once Smogon gets round to it. It will debut in a major role in the next Pokémon movie, “Everyone’s Story”.
