It has been discovered that back in February 2016, two trademarks were registered for Solgaleo (ソルガレオ) and Lunaala (ルナアーラ). Many have speculated that these are the Legendary Pokémon for Pokémon Sun & Moon due to the format of the trademark. However, unlike the majority of Pokémon trademarks, these trademarks weren't registered by Nintendo, Game Freak or Creatures Inc. but rather listed under the name Yusuke Inui who, upon research, appears to be an IP lawyer in Japan. It's possible that this is just a registration via proxy which does happen from time to time, but it is 100% not confirmed that these trademarks pertain to Pokémon.

Who's That Pokémon

Today marks the one-hundred & twenty-ninth entry into the Generation VI competitive field with a Johto Pokémon. These entries are created by the visitors for the visitors and then compiled by our writers Miror, Archangel, Ragnarok, Psynergy & KillerDraco. To get involved, Click here for the discussion forum
Today, we are covering a Pokémon introduced in the second generation. Bellossom gather at times and seem to dance. They say that the dance is a ritual to summon the sun. When the heavy rainfall season ends, it is drawn out by warm sunlight to dance in the open. When Bellossom gets exposed to plenty of sunlight, the leaves ringing its body begin to spin around. This Pokémon's dancing is renowned in the southern lands. A Bellossom grows flowers more beautifully if it has evolved from a smelly Gloom-the more stinky the better. At night, this Pokémon closes its petals and goes to sleep So, here it is, the one-hundred & twenty-ninth entry, Bellossom.
