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 Ten

1 Tapu Koko Tapu Koko

When pikachu uses its Z move on it, tapu koko can even block it with its two head shields. that seems to be the fastest and the most defensive Pokemon in all regions. AMAZING!

2 Salandit Salandit

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

Man, I love every single one of these new Pokemon's designs! - eventer51314

Pervert+Crocodile=this - GriffinDoge

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

It's 4x weakness to Ground is a small price to pay to have this amazing design on your team.

3 Lunala Lunala Lunala is a dual-type Psychic/Ghost Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation VII . It evolves from Cosmoem when leveled up in Pokémon Moon starting at level 53 . It is one of Cosmog's final forms, the other being Solgaleo . more.

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

4 Mimikyu Mimikyu

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

The hardest Totem Pokemon by far. EVER. - HeavyDonkeyKong

I never got the appeal behind this guy

Its super cute and strong also it has a cool backstory.

5 Rowlet Rowlet

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

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

6 Solgaleo Solgaleo Solgaleo is a dual Psychic/Steel Legendary Pokèmon introduced in Generation VII. It evolves from Cosmoem when leveled up in Pokemon Sun starting at level 53.It is one of Cosmog's final forms,the other being Lunala. Solgaleo takes a special form called the Radiant Sun phase when it uses Sunsteel strikes. more.

Such an awesome looking Pokemon! - eventer51314

I have found Arturia Pendragon's ideal Pokemon! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

It's a majestic lion its cool and lit #lunala stinks

7 Lycanroc Lycanroc

It's about time we got a wolf Pokemon... But TWO?!?!?!?

I fell in love with lycanroc!

It's middnight form looks badass!

8 Minior Minior

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

9 Wishiwashi Wishiwashi

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

10 Tapu Bulu Tapu Bulu

I thought this was going to be fire/fairy. Turns out to be grass/fairy.. okay. I'll take it! - Ruee

The Contenders

11 Tapu Lele Tapu Lele

Kind of looks like what Madoka Kaname would have for a Pokemon. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Tapu Lele is the cutest of the Tapus. Its very cute. I really like the design. Has an amazing ability also. - Ruee

12 Litten Litten

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

13 Decidueye Decidueye

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?

14 Jangmo-o Jangmo-o

Though I do not like Jangm-o, Kommo-o is his last form and is super powerful.

15 Popplio Popplio

Second cutest starter!

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

You literally just dissed me for having a Popplio profile picture. Hypocrite. - InklingSethO

One thing I thought of when I saw this cute little seal (so many kawaii pokemon in gen 7)

Yes! Popplio is an amazing Pokemon throughout all its evolutions and it makes me so happy! 😊

16 Vikavolt Vikavolt
17 Rockruff Rockruff

One of the most adorable pokemon ver - HeavyDonkeyKong

This Pokémon looks so cute. - Pony

GAME FREAK, why the hell did you turn an awesome ghost pokemon to a stupid water pokemon - GriffinDoge

19 Drampa Drampa

Falkor the luck dragon? *shudders* - eventer51314

20 Alola Ninetales Alola 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
