Update: This month's CoroCoro will feature a silhouette of the brand new mythical Pokemon that is set to be revealed on Pokemon Day.

Been a while since we have had a silhouette reveal like this. My mind automatically goes to the Gen 5 starter reveals, but I can't remember if there has been anything more recently.

Yes, those were the last ones. The silouettes were shown on Pokemon Sunday (a.k.a. in video form) and were revealed on Corocoro, this seems the other way around. Also, coincidentally this week 10 years ago Zoroark was revealed.

Know what I wish? I wish Rillaboom had some Rock moves. Do you have any idea how much havoc he'd reek if he did? No scared of Charizard, screw flying types in general, By ice types. Majority of his weaknesses would be covered.

Rock blast and rock slide would be good.

How would You compare Talonflame with Dragapult?
the bird has less weaknesses but status wise is much weaker especially on speed.

This generation is a Talonflame counter, taking steel elephant , Dragapult, our fighting squid and others...
Even Corviknight with Substitute isn't left in the corner against it with that defense and hp.
Many revenge killers with right stats to pull it of actually.

Yeah, there's no better counter to a Fire/Flying type than a Steel-type weak to Fire and a Fighting type weak to Flying.

Why are you so focused on Talonflame, anyways? It's not even in the game, it loses 50% health to Stealth Rock, and it's in Underused since its Gen 7 nerf.

Partial silhouette of the new Mythical, from Corocoro:


Looks like a Cradily-esque weirdo, so it's probably right up my street.
So was Piuk kind of right after all, but just got some details wrong (mistaking the anime plot for the game plot)? It looks like a weird snake to me.

If by "some," you mean "literally everything except maybe an important snake Pokémon, and we don't even know that's what this is because as swiftgallade pointed out, it could be only half the silhouette."

There's also the jungle boy Coco that matches up with what Piuk said. I remember that coming up after Coco got its first trailer up and running. I'm not sure who suggested this, but they said it might be possible that Piuk might have gotten mixed-up between the anime and the games proper and simply assumed they were all part of the same thing. In other words, Piuk might have been a legitimate translator that jumped to conclusions since most of the anime movies end up reflecting what's in/advertising the newest or upcoming games (up until that 20th anniversary title at least).

Piuk's "leaks" were very, very, very clearly talking about a game and purporting to have inside knowledge about the mechanics and gameplay.
