A new legendary called Zeraora, the Thunderclap Pokémon, will join Ultra Sun and Moon for 3DS.
Zeraora is a pure electric-type monster, and is capable of firing a powerful magnetic field from the pads on its hands and feet.
It doesn’t generate electricity, but rather feeds on, and stores, the electricity around it – which sounds a bit like Pyro from X-Men.
It was introduced on the show, Oha Suta, which also featured a quick look at the upcoming movie Pokémon: Everyone’s Story. You can spot Zeraora in the film as well.

There isn’t yet any word on when the Poke is going to appear in-game. More details will likely arise before Pokémon: Everyone’s Story hits theatres on July 13th.
This news will come as a pleasant surprise for 3DS owners, as most of the excitement at the moment is either for Pokémon Go, or for the upcoming Nintendo Switch version of Ultra Sun and Moon.
