Pokémon Sun and Moon leaks are rolling in at an astonishing rate, mostly thanks to a dataminer who posts on YouTube as Kaphotics. The latest spoiler-filled video offers stats and moves for the new Alola forms, which put a tropical spin on some classic Pokémon returning for Pokémon Sun and Moon.

Before we dive into those Pokémon Sun and Moon Alola form stats, here's a quick refresh on the new feature from the official Pokémon YouTube channel:


Pokémon Sun and Moon leaks and spoilers: Everything we know about the Alola-form Pokémon

Visually, each Alola-form Pokémon takes on a new look to match the tropical style of Sun and Moon. For example, Raichu's tail now doubles as a surfboard, while Dugtrio's new shiny blond hair gives the ground-type Pokémon a surfer style.

Beyond these new designs, each Alola-form Pokémon also gets new stats and moves. With this latest leak, we finally have the full rundown of all those changes.
