A brand new Pokémon means, properly, a number of new pokémon. And the lead-up to Pokémon Violet and Scarlet has been filled with monster reveals, the newest of which is an artist who stays up all night time and is a little bit of a loner.
Grafaiai, because it’s known as, was revealed right this moment in a intelligent documentary-style video clip that basically makes me need a David Attenborough narrated sequence all about pocket monsters. The poisonous monkey pokémon is cute, in fact, however as with a lot of its cute contemporaries, issues get fairly darkish if you have a look at the main points. Right here’s the official description:
Grafaiai is a moody pokémon with a fastidious disposition. It doesn’t type packs, preferring to roam alone, and it’s continually caught up in territorial struggles with different pokémon. Grafaiai makes a speciality of utilizing its toxic saliva — which modifications coloration relying on what the pokémon eats — to assault foes by spitting at them or by slashing at them after coating its claws with the saliva.
Grafaiai is nocturnal and as soon as the solar units it licks its palms and fingers to cowl them in poison and makes use of them to attract patterns on the bushes in its territory. The toxic saliva it makes use of to color paralyzes bug pokémon, that are drawn to the saliva’s candy, aromatic scent.
It’s totally doable that Grafaiai is supposed to be a not-so-subtle critique of the modern artwork world, however the one factor I do know for positive is I need him on my staff alongside the bread dog. Simply have a look at that angle:
Pokémon Violet and Scarlet are launching on the Nintendo Swap on November 18th and can introduce new options like trainer schools and pokémon that are also motorcycles.
