Nintendo has been slowly revealing more about Pokemon Sun and Moon over the last few months, and one of the best revelations has to be about the Alolan Pokemon. Pre-existing favorites like Sandshrew and Raichu have gotten substantial design tweaks, as a result of living on a Hawaii-like island. A new video released this week highlights both new forms and new Pokemon altogether, but the star has to be the new Meowth.
According to the official lore, Alola Meowths tranformed when they became pampered and spoiled by local royalty. In other words, these Meowths are even bigger assholes than usual. But it's hard not to love that smug smirk and sassy shrug. The internet definitely agrees.
