In somewhat of a surprise revelation, a new mythical electric-type Pokémon has been “discovered” in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon — dubbed “Zeraora”.

The new creature was first revealed yesterday in a surprise trailer posted to the various Pokémon social media platforms. The footage includes key art, gameplay, and various details on what is being called a mythical addition. The official Pokémon website goes into a tiny bit more detail with their listing.
The Mythical Pokémon Zeraora appears like a thunderbolt! This Pokémon creates a powerful magnetic field by emitting strong electric currents from the pads on its hands and feet. It can use this magnetic field to levitate and move through the air at high speed. Its max speed is said to be about the same as that of a lightning strike.
Even with the details, the release of Zeraora is still a mystery. The trailer states that more news would be coming soon, so it is unclear whether or not Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon may be receiving some type of DLC or simply just an update for this monster to give some context to its existence.
