Best Announced Generation 7 Pokemon Before the Release of Sun and Moon

This list is about generation 7 Pokemon that are revealed to us before the release of Pokemon Sun and Moon. That being said, who are your favorite Pokemon revealed for Pokemon Sun and Moon? What makes you love these pokemon? What do you want to see from them?

NOTE: Stick to Generation 7 Pokemon that were revealed BEFORE November 18th, 2016. This list is about first impressions and what we like about these Pokemon before actually being able to use them.

The Top TenXW


If you are wondering why I put this pokemon as #1 by default. It's because I see absolutely no hate for it. While the others I saw slight hate or complete hate due to their designs. People don't really have any complaints for Salandit's design. It's like perfection for what it's supposed to be. - Ruee

Also something else I want to mention, I really hope Ash gets Salandit in the anime. I seriously doubt he would ever get Litten because of the fact behind Pikachu and Meowth being enemies in the anime. (Cat and mouse. The cat is always trying to catch the mouse.) - Ruee

This would be perfect for one of Team Skull's grunts to have when I run into them. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Pervert+Crocodile=this - GriffinDoge

Reverse harem? So you're telling me that Salandit's evolution is feminine? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

2Tapu Koko

Tapu Koko was seen fighting ultra beasts in a recent trailer. He is officially making Pokemon Sun and Moon games like the anime. Beat the crap out of those weird bug things for us, Tapu Koko! - Ruee

HEADS UP: Tomorrow (10/18/2016), the Sun and Moon demo will be released and there might be a full pokedex leak from data miners if Gamefreak did the same mistake with the ORAS demo. Please do not add those said Pokemon on here unless they are announced on the Pokemon youtube channel where they release trailers. There will be people avoiding the data mining leaks and I will most likely will too. - Ruee


I agree that it's time a female companion chooses a grass type starter in the anime! Rowlet would be perfect! - eventer51314

I want Rowlet to love wearing the flower beanie hat if it's the female heroine being the next companion - Ruee

So cute. For once, the grass type starter is the cutest of the trio, in my opinion. - eventer51314

Hey guys, the mid stage evolutions of Rowlet, Litten, and Popplio have been announced. If you can submit them for me, I will really appreciate it. The admins won't let me. Thank you in advance. - Ruee

Minior reminds me of Luma from Super Mario Galaxy and I find that adorable. - Ruee


To me, Wishiwashi was the hardest Totem Pokemon for me to fight so far. Its School Form was one hell of a defensive tank! In addition, Ruee sure was right about its massive stats! Combine that with Aqua Ring and its SOS partner Alomomola using Heal Pulse on it and you're in for one long endurance battle! - ModernSpongeBobSucks


Even though I'm just getting Pokemon Sun, the design for Lunala just looks so majestic and elegant. If Rin Tohsaka from Fate/Stay Night was a Pokemon Trainer, Lunala would be a great Pokemon for her team. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

"Mimikyu disguised as Pikachu because it wants to be loved as much as Pikachu" I don't know if you know this little guy, but it's working. I think I love you a lot more than I will ever love Pikachu. You are actually my most favorite gen 7 Pokemon revealed so far. (comment made on 7/27/2016) You are a adorable and precious little ghost that needs to be protected at all costs. - Ruee

I see people drawing Ash and Pikachu being disgusted by a Mimikyu and I honestly don't think Ash would be. I think he would love to see a Mimikyu and Pikachu would be skeptical at first but then befriends it. - Ruee

The more I see this Pokemon and hear about it, the more I think it's a great idea and super adorable! - eventer51314

I never got the appeal behind this guy

The Newcomers


The Contenders


Anyways, this is my most favorite out of the 3 Alolan Starters. I really like the design, concept, the typing, the personality, AA! It might be my most favorite Pokemon depending how good my experiences are with it in the games. I CAN'T WAIT TO USE IT! - Ruee

Ash confirmed to get a Rowlet, he better fully evolve it into Decidueye or I'll be disappointed in him. (I really love the Pokemon okay. It's so badass) - Ruee

I want a plush of this Pokemon. And question. How do you pronunce his name?

12Alola Ninetales

People are mad at this design like? HOW? It's sooo pretty. It didn't ruin ninetales, the design is so good and using a variant idea that makes Ninetales snow white is such a great idea! - Ruee

Alola Ninetales is my favorite alola pokemon - TwilightKitsune

This Pokemon is so perfect. I can't explain why. It's an adorable loyal little puppy with a very fluffy tail who loves you very much. There isn't much to hate. And if it evolves into a wolf like everyone has been speculating, I'll probably explode. - Ruee

If Hala doesn't have Drampa on his team, I'll be very pissed off. - Ruee

It appears that Hala is the Kahuna of the first island is most likely the second gym leader replacement you face (4 trail captains, 4 Kuhanas) so we will most likely not have a drampa. Makes me sad because Drampa really resembles Hala and seriously, what's a Alolan grandpa without a grandpa dragon? why Hala? - Ruee

If Popplio's final evolution does in fact evolve into a beautiful siren and is 100% legit then you jerks who bully popplio better apologize for hurting its feelings by calling it ugly. - Ruee

Popplio fully evolved into Primarina, the most gorgeous starter. If you bullied Popplio for being "ugly", it's time to apologize. - Ruee

Why does everyone hate this one? It's adorable and I'm sure it'll evolve into something awesome! - eventer51314

16Alola Marowak

Honestly when I heard that there might be an Alolan Marowak, it's literally everything I wanted. It being fire and a throwback to the ghost Marowak back in gen 1. Also there are new Pokemon other than alolan forms but I'll add them once their english names are revealed. - Ruee


I've wanted a cat starter for many years and I finally got it. Litten, please...for the love of God, do not become bipedal. Stay on all of your four legs, please... - Ruee

Those chinese rumors are getting closer to being 100% legit and if so I probably won't evolve litten, ever. - Ruee

I'm guessing from the new anime trailer that Ash will get Litten. - Ruee


My favorite gen 7 starter - Pony

I kinda want Cutiefly to evolve into a poodle moth and then eventually evolve into another cute/beautiful moth if it gets a second stage evolution. It gives me the vibe that it could evolve into a moth and it's not impossible either since evolutions usually stray from the animal/bug/fish species that the unevolved pokemon is based on. - Ruee

I just realized 'Cutiefly' totally sounds like a name of a pony from My Little Pony, lol! - eventer51314

Cutiefly should be like Wurmple, It can evolve into a majestic masquline looking moth or a more feminine one - SeeU

Oricorio looks like a peacock wearing a kimono. Still the best gen 7 pokemon though - TwilightKitsune

Shame it doesn't learn good moves

Wow! That looks and sounds awesome! 4 different forms? And different typings? Can't wait to see them in action!
