I can understand why we don't get the stats along with the Pokemon. That's something that the more competitive players would care about more than just the casual players. While it would be easier to know ahead of time what the stats are, I don't think it would be something they think is necessary to bring up. It does add more surprises to the games too.

Does the Pokemon Company have some sort of deal with Coro Coro? I don't quite understand why they give some magazine exclusive news like that unless the Pokemon Company is making money from doing so.

TPC isn't the one getting money. It's Corocoro. Simply put it, TPC pays corocoro to reveal official information on their games since that's serve as a good way to advertise their games through Japan.

They probably haven't released the stats because the game is still under development and stats can maybe change.

I don't mind not seeing the stats as long as we get to see new pokemon. I am just interested in the typing and abilities of the pokemon. Stats are okay but are not a requirement in my opinion.

We never got the stats of the Pokémon during X and Y's pre-release period, so we won't get the stats from Sun and Moon's pre-release period as well.

Masuda's show at Japan Expo seems to be happening at 12:30 French time which is just under 2 hours away. Remember we're not guaranteed anything from it, so don't get hyped, but you never know what might happen.

Nintendo of France's Twitter is saying Masuda has an announcement for the end of the presentation.

e: I should clarify that it's not confirmed to be in relation to SM so don't get hyped (still) :p

New trailer's out, if it hasn't already been posted! It's revealed the Pokémon Salandit, a Poison/Fire type! 21 minutes ago as of this post.

Interesting ability, Corrosion... It overrides Poison immunities, at least by type!

Love the ability, wonder if this Pokemon have enough stats to be on a toxic stall team.

Salandit looks so cute and I really like its typing. Its ability sounds quite useful when it can poison seemingly any type of Pokemon. Something like Komala's ability would probably counteract Salandit's ability, but it's still pretty cool.

Salandit sure is cool. That typing is unique too. Depending on where Litten's evo goes this may have to be my Fire type.

Salandit is amazing! Love the design, the typing, the ability! I'm also torn between Salandit and Litten now since I have a no-type-overlaps rule on my teams.

Salandit's expression is amazing. Look at that little brat. "Poison and Steel type? Too bad. Corrosion."

My poison trainer already booked a ticket to Alola.
