A brand new mythical Pokémon is appearing in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, bringing the total number of Pokémon up to 807.

Passionate Pokémon fans have known about Zeraora for a while, since nothing in the Pokémon games stays hidden from data miners for long. It made its first official appearance only recently, however, showing up in a flash at the very end of a Japanese trailer for the upcoming movie Pokémon: Everyone’s Story.

Now, Nintendo has officially unveiled the Electric type Pokémon in a press release and with a short new trailer. According to the trailer’s stats, Zeraora, the Thunderclap Pokémon, stands 4’11” tall and weighs 98.1 pounds.

“Zeraora is an Electric-type Pokémon that gathers electric energy from outside sources, emitting strong electrical currents from the pads on its hands and feet to create a powerful magnetic field,” the press release reads. “Zeraora uses this magnetic field to levitate and move through the air with extreme speed.”

Nintendo didn’t give any more details on how players will obtain Zeraora, but fans have spotted that it appears in a Cherish Ball, meaning it will likely come by getting a code in some way and talking to the in-game delivery man.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are currently out exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS.
