If You Want To Live, Don’t Let It Hug You
The surprise star from Sun and Moon, Mimikyu was a Pokemon that was just as creepy as it was charming. With it’s sole desire of making a friend, the way it wore a crumpled Pikachu outfit, it all came together to create a cute yet ominous entity that fans couldn’t get enough of.
Nintendo must have gotten wind of this, because in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, it has been given its own Z-Move, and…well…it’s dark as all hell.
According to an article on Gamespot –
Despite its adorable appearance, Mimikyu is one of the more unsettling Pokemon introduced in Sun and Moon, and the upcoming Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon versions make the Ghost/Fairy-type even creepier by giving it a brand-new Z-Move.
The attack is called Let’s Snuggle Forever, and it’s a lot more insidious than its name may make it sound. When Mimikyu is equipped with its exclusive Z-Crystal, Mimikium Z, the Pokemon’s Play Rough attack turns into Let’s Snuggle Forever, a devastating Fairy-type move.
Here’s how the official Pokemon website describes the new attack: “When Mimikyu’s wishes are in sync with its Trainer’s, it comes up behind its target, enveloping it in the cloth that it wears. Then it uses its full power to show its opponent a little ‘tough love.'”
Mimikyu isn’t the only Pokemon to receive an exclusive new Z-Move in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. The games also introduce a powerful new attack for Lycanroc called Splintered Stormshards, while the Dragon/Fighting-type Kommo-o will be able to unleash the new Z-Move Clangorous Soulblaze. The Legendary Pokemon Solgaleo and Lunala get their own respective Z-Moves as well; Solgaleo and Dusk Mane Necrozma can use Searing Sunraze Smash, while Lunala and Dawn Wings Necrozma are able to unleash Menacing Moonraze Maelstrom.
