These seven new Pokemon are quite...interesting

Pokemon Sun and Moon's roster keeps getting weirder and weirder: Falcor shows up, and a mysterious snake-Gundam appears too

Pokemon in itself is quite weird, but in a good way...at least sort of. And over the years the series has gotten weirder and weirder, bringing us to the bizarre assembly of Pocket Monsters revealed today.

Remember those wacky creatures shown in the recent Pokemon leak? Remember how everyone thought they were fake? Well, it turns out they're 100% real--yes, even that weird bug-type Charjabug that literally looks like a bus, and Bruxish the fish with lips--and all of them will be featured in the upcoming Pokemon Sun & Moon 3DS games.

The Pokemon Company released a new video showcasing each of the seven new Pokemon in all of their peculiar glory, and check below for pics and full BIOS of Drampa (hi Falcor!), Togedemaru, Vikavolt (not so bad), Cutiefly (okay this one is awesome), Bruxish (why is this even a thing?!), Charjabug (hilarious) and Tapu Koko (pretty neat). There was also an eighth snake/gem-like Pokemon revealed in the trailer, but so far no details have sprung up about it.
