Type: Null and Jangmo-o have been revealed as new Alola region Pokémon that will appear in Nintendo 3DS exclusives Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.
Somewhat gruesomely, Type: Null was “constructed to synthesise the strengths of various Pokémon” in the hope that it could adapt to any situation. The mask that it wears to control its powers is heavy, hindering the Synthetic Pokémon’s agility.
It is said that the Scaly Pokémon Jangmo-o “has the pride of a warrior,” and is always in pursuit of becoming stronger. The heart-shaped scale on its head is used for offense and defense, with Trainers seeing Jangmo-o as a valiant Pokémon.

This Pokémon wearing a mask has been dubbed “Null,” meaning nothing.
The shapes of its front and hind legs are clearly different. The reason is that Type: Null was constructed to synthesize the strengths of various Pokémon, enabling it to adapt to any situation.
The mask fitted to Type: Null’s head is a piece of equipment designed to control its latent powers. It’s extremely heavy, so it also serves to hinder Type: Null’s agility.
To complete a certain mission, there was need of a Pokémon powerful enough to rival those Pokémon often spoken of in mythology.

Jangmo-o has the pride of a warrior, although it remains humble about its capabilities. In its pursuit to become stronger, it never neglects its training.
Because Jangmo-o uses the scales on its head for both offense and defense, it never turns its back to its enemies. Many Trainers see this behavior and take it as proof that Jangmo-o is a valiant Pokémon.
Jangmo-o gather in harsh locales like canyons, where no other people or Pokémon are around, to live together as they train.
Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will release exclusively for Nintendo 3DS in North America, Australia and New Zealand on November 18th, and in Europe on November 23rd.
