Zeraora, a New Mythical Pokémon, is Revealed for Pokémon Ultra Sun and Moon

This kitty's got static.

A new Pokémon named Zeraora is coming to Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon's sunny Alola region. Zeraora won't be available for some time—probably not until summer—but just be aware it's on its way in case you want to lay out some traps or whatever. Just kidding. Please don't poison Pokémon. They love you.

Zeraora is an Electric-type Pokémon with a shaggy coat and black accents. According to the Pokémon Company's official page for the beastie, it moves faster than lightning and "creates a powerful magnetic field by emitting strong electric currents from the pads on its hands and feet." Sure enough, it has big ol' paws that probably aid in that endeavor. Zeraora also uses the Earth's magnetic field to hover.

Interestingly, unlike most Electric-types, Zeraora doesn't possess a body part that generates electricity. Instead, it stores up electrical energy from its surroundings and lets fly when appropriate.

The video for Zeraora states more info on its acquisition is coming soon. Zeraora is featured in the feature-length film Pokémon: Everyone’s Story, which is coming to theatres in Japan on July 13 this year. We'll probably learn more about this new electric-kitty when the summer arrives.
