After months of Nintendo releasing modest amounts of info on the upcoming Pokemon Sun and Moon, we're finally starting to get into the version-exclusive Pokemon. Alongside some new moves for Pikachu and Eevee (plus the return of character customization and Poke-petting options), we saw four brand-new Pokemon, each with their own exclusivity.
The adorable ground puppy Rockruff will evolve into one of two forms depending on which version you're stuck with after your friend called dibs. There's also Passimian, a monkey with something of a sports theme, and Oranguru -- who is not, by any means, to be confused with the Meme Gorrilla Who Will Not Be Named. While we're above referencing the H word in reference to the new ape Pokemon, the internet, as you'll see, is definitely not.
I don't think we'll ever see an Oranguru that isn't named Harambe pic.twitter.com/J9Y4Vzy4tW-- Sleepy Mimikyu (@SleepyJirachi) September 20, 2016
