New Legendary Pokémon Hoopa Revealed

With Hoopa being thrown into the mix, those who caught ’em all now need one more


Although previous data mining escapades had already outed the poor thing, Nintendo has now officially revealed the newest Legendary Pokémon; Hoopa.

Initially revealed in Japan’s CoroCoro Magazine, Hoopa is the second secret Pokémon revealed in the current Generation (VI) right behind the Rock/Fairy Type Diancie.

Although the Pokémon is now official, there are no mentions in CoroCoro of a Hoopa-related event in any Pokémon game. Rather, Hoopa was debuted in order to promote the newest upcoming Pokémon movie. That’s not to say there is no game-related news however. Those who have played either Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire may have noticed golden rings holding certain Legendaries. These rings, while still largely mysterious, have in fact been confirmed to be related to Hoopa.

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
