The new Pokemon were revealed in Japanese magazine CoroCoro. "Sunabaa" and "Shirodesuna" are the Japanese names for these Pokemon, so I expect we'll get something a little more pun-friendly for the North American and European reveal. I'm thinking Mancastle. No? The Mighty Sandlacc?

Oh well. Every Pokemon generation has its Mr. Mime. And who knows, maybe these Ground/Ghost types will come in handy. It kind of looks like it's about to devour poor Pichu in the top-right corner there so ... y'know what, I take it back. This thing will straight-up drown you in sand. Pokemon is hardcore, man.
