New form revealed for Mythical Pokémon Hoopa
BELLEVUE, Wash.—April 14, 2015—The Pokémon Company International today announced Hoopa Unbound, a new form of the Mythical Pokémon Hoopa. A new video featuring Hoopa’s new form, Hoopa Unbound, can be found here:
Hoopa is a Mythical Pokémon that players cannot meet through ordinary gameplay in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. Hoopa is the 720th Pokémon to be added to the Pokédex, and it would appear that it can change form.
Hoopa Unbound is the new and truest form of Hoopa, which until now has had its power sealed away. The rings Hoopa Unbound carries have the power to bend dimensions and are said to allow it to seize anything in the world. After its transformation, Hoopa Unbound is far larger than it was in its previous form, with six huge arms and a greater number of its signature dimension-bending rings.
Hoopa Unbound stats:
- Category: Djinn Pokémon
- Type: Psychic/Dark
- Height: 21’04” [6.5 m]
- Weight: 1,080.3 lbs. [490.0 kg]
- Ability: Magician
The mystery around how Hoopa regains its true form, as well as the secret of meeting Hoopa itself, has yet to be revealed… Stay tuned for more information on how to meet Hoopa!
