Top 5 NEW Mistyped Pokemon In Pokemon Sun And Moon
Hey Guys, HDvee here, and welcome back to another Pokemon Sun and Moon video. With the new seventh generation games, we’ve been blessed with a bunch of brand new Pokemon with amazing new abilities, moves, and of course, evolutions. We all know that every Pokemon has a type, or dual typing, and whilst most of them make sense in the Pokemon world, a few Pokemon have slipped through the realms of reality and just seem a little too weird. Pokemon Sun and Moon were no different, introducing a few new Pokemon whose types just don’t seem to match up with the design very well at all. With all of that being said, today’s video takes a look at five typings that make no sense in Pokemon Sun and Moon, across all of the new Pokemon released.
Of course this is all my own opinion, and so if you don’t agree with my list after watching the video, then please leave your suggestions in the comment section below, i’d love to hear your guys thoughts on this topic. With all of that out of the way though, let’s get into the video and I really hope that you enjoy! Starting things off and claiming the number five spot in today’s top five video is Golisopod. Golisopod is a large, menacing arthropod Pokémon in a hunched-over, humanoid posture. It has a light purplish inner body generously armored with a silvery exoskeleton.
Golisopod’s bright purple antennae converge with its mouthparts on the front of its relatively small head, forming a sort of mask between its two eyes. Golisopod is a dual typing of water and bug, I can see why it’s pre evolution Wimpod has this typing, but Golisopod is said to be based on the giant isopod with the armor of a samurai. The armor of a samurai particularly jumps out at me, and because of this I feel that this new Pokemon should have been a dual typing of bug and dark, seeing as there’s not really any correlation between a samurai and water.
This typing would have made sense too seeing as Golisopod can already learn a handful of dark type moves such as sucker punch, fling, payback, taunt, snarl and dark pulse. I really do think that a dual typing of bug and dark would have been really cool to see on this Pokemon, and so because of all of these reasons, Golisopod takes the number five spot in today’s top five video. Coming in at the number four spot in today’s top five video is Lurantis.
Lurantis is an insectoid Pokémon with some plant-like features. The top half of its head is pink, while the bottom half is white. It has light red eyes and two green antennae with a small green lump between them. There are four extensions to the top half of its head: two on the top with red tips that resemble ears, and one on each side with white tips that are similar to stylized hair. Now, Lurantis is a pure grass type Pokemon, and i really cannot see why. It is based off of an orchid mantis, so why is this Pokemon not a bug type when it’s literally an insect? Lurantis even gets access to a bunch of bug type moves such as leech life, x scissor and fury cutter, but that’s not even the main problem.
It’s design even looks like a bug too, there’s so many similarities between this Pokemon and an insect that I really can’t see any reason why Gamefreak decided to go with a grass typing for this Pokemon instead, it really boggles my mind. For all of these reasons, Lurantis takes the number four spot in today’s top five video. Coming in at the halfway point and claiming the number three spot in today’s top five video is Nihilgeo, or, however you pronounce it, I still don’t know. Nihilego is an Ultra Beast which resembles a jellyfish. It is mostly white and has tentacles shaped like the hair, dress, and legs of a girl.
The top of its head is a bell that resembles a sun hat. The bell is transparent save for six pointed stars around the crown, and the brim has a blue edge. The ends of the “hair” fly out, resembling arms, and the outer tentacles of the “dress” have two bubbles inside. Now, believe it or not, but this Pokemon is actually a dual typing of poison and rock. Yes, you heard it, poison and rock. This jellyfish, is poison and rock. Fair enough, I get where the poison type comes from, seeing as some jellyfish have millions of very small stinging cells in their tentacles called nematocysts. These cells are used to capture food by injecting toxin into the prey, but the rock type? Surely it would have made much more sense for Gamefreak to make this Pokemon a dual typing of water and poison instead? You know, since jellyfish actually live in water? I was honestly shocked the first time I came across this Pokemon during my first playthrough of Pokemon Sun, and it still makes me wonder now why this ultra beast has been given this dual typing. For all of these reasons, Nihilego takes the number three spot in today’s top five video.
Coming in at the number two spot in today’s top five video we have another ultra beast, Pheromosa. Pheromosa is an Ultra Beast mostly resembling an anthropomorphic, feminine cockroach. It has a thin build and is mostly white. It has a segmented body, having five segments dividing its torso. Pheromosa has a long and narrow neck, and a small semicircular face. It has narrow white eyes with a purple iris, and blue pupils. Pheromosa has long, thin legs suited for running and kicking, with golden pads at the joints. Its feet consist of two twig-like structures, rather resembling high-heeled shoes. Now, just like Buzzwole, Pheromosa is a dual typing of bug and fighting, and fair enough, I can see why Buzzwole has this typing, it’s buff as hell, but Pheromosa? I understand the bug typing, seeing as it’s based off of a feminine cockroach, but this Pokemon doesn’t really strike me as the fighting type.
To me, a much more suitable typing for this Pokemon would have been a dual typing of bug and fairy, or bug and psychic, especially because this Pokemon’s design is tailored much more to these typings instead of the bug and fighting that it actually got. Simply because of the design of this Pokemon not looking like the typing that it received, Pheromosa takes the number two spot in today’s top five video.
Finishing things off and taking the number one spot in today’s top five video is the Lycanroc midnight form. In its Midnight Form, Lycanroc resembles a slouched, bipedal wolf or werewolf. It has short red fur with white on its lower legs, and a white streak that covers its face, underbelly, and tail. It has pointed, button ears with black tips, three large tufts of fur on each side of its face, a triangular black nose, and a mouth full of sharp teeth. So, Lycanroc’s midnight form is just a pure rock type, and i can see where the rock type comes from, all that’s good and dandy, but what I want to know, is that why isn’t this Pokemon also a part dark type? It’s literally a werewolf AND you have to evolve it at night. You think that it would make pretty good sense to give this new Pokemon a dual typing of dark and rock. Lycanroc also learns a handful of dark type moves too such as bite, crunch, taunt, snarl and sucker punch, so the stab is already there. To me, i just feel like the combination of the glowing red eyes, the sharp teeth, the fact that it’s a werewolf and also that it can only evolve at night all add together to make pretty good sense that this Pokemon should have been given a dual typing of rock and dark, but unfortunately, we know that this wasn’t the case.
For all of these reasons, Lycanroc’s midnight form takes the number one spot in today’s top five video. But with that, wraps up this video. I really hope you enjoyed it as much as i did making it!
