We’re a month away from the next Pokémon game, and new Pokémon reveals continue at a steady pace. The newest Pokémon Sun and Moon trailer is a bit light on exciting new information compared to previous trailers. But, we do learn about several new evolutions.

pokémon sun and moonThe more we learn about Type: Null, the more I’m convinced it plays a major role in the story. Type: Null evolves into Silvally. The description hints that it may take a close bond with its trainer to evolve. The Synthetic Pokémon has a unique Ability called RKS System. Its Move Multi-Attack and coloring change depending on which item it’s holding.

Eagle-eyed fans have already noted that “RKS” translates to Arceus, the mythical Pokémon who may have created the entire universe.
