A new Japanese trailer for Pokémon Sun and Moon has been released, which features a new Pokémon a new Alola Form, and more details on some information revealed in this month's CoroCoro such as Team Skull.

Alolan Raichu is an Electric/Psychic-type Pokémon. It has the new Ability Surge Surfer, which doubles its Speed while Electric Terrain is active. It can learn Psychic and Thunderbolt. It levitates in the air by riding its tail as a surfboard and has blue eyes (resembling Puka's).

Team Skull, the villainous team of the Alola region as revealed in CoroCoro, are featured in the new trailer. They are a group of ruffians who steal other people's Pokémon, mess up the trial sites, and delight in all kinds of evil deeds.
Guzma is the Team Skull Boss. He is described as battling without mercy, describing himself and destruction in human form. He is shown to use an Ariados that knows Fell Stinger (among other Pokémon). He has "a bone to pick" with Kukui, and mentions that both of them could never become Trial Captains.
Plumeria is a Team Skull Admin. In battle, she uses a Golbat (among other Pokémon). She describes herself as a big sister, and considers the other members of Team Skull to be her younger siblings.
Grunts have to buy their uniforms themselves. The Grunts are shown to use Zubat, Haunter and Drowzee.
Notably, the Grunts, Guzma, and Plumeria are all shown sending out Pokémon from non-standard Poké Balls.
