Pokémon Go isn’t the only Pokémon game around, as two brand new Pokémon are revealed, and they’re both a little scary.
While Nintendo’s new mobile game is a hit, eager Pokémon fans are starving for information regarding the upcoming installments in the epic Pokémon franchise. A spread in the Japanese magazine CoroCoro and a new trailer on the Pokémon YouTube channel revealed two fresh pocket monsters.
There isn’t too much to go on from the video itself, so who exactly are these two new characters?
Two new Pokémon revealed at Corocoro: Kiteruguma and Mimitsukiyu https://t.co/mn4dcbf262—

According to the magazine pages, Kiteruguma is a normal/fighting-type Pokémon and Mimicyu (or Mimikkyu) is a ghost/fighting-type Pokémon that bears a passing resemblance to Pikachu. Both of these new Pokémon will have abilities never before seen in a game.
Reactions are mixed so far as both characters are wearing a mask or a costume so they kind of remind some people of horror movie creatures. Maybe they got the idea for Kiteruguma one day when a Pokémon designer saw Kumamon accidentally wearing another mascot’s head. Mimicyu on the other hand, is steadily building a fan-base with plenty of fan artists producing some joyous work.
suddenly I am 20x more endeared to pikabag now that I know it just wanted to be loved like pikachu https://t.co/Y2rfZtqL0S—
