The 720th Pokemon Is Hoopa Unbound

Watch a video now to see the new creature who will appear in Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire.

38 Comments

The Pokedex continues to grow, as The Pokemon Company today announced Hoopa Unbound, an evolution of the mythical Pokemon Hoopa. Hoopa Unbound becomes the 720th Pokemon in the Pokedex.

No Caption Provided

The Pokemon Company is being somewhat coy as it relates to Hoopa Unbound. The creature will appear in Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire for 3DS, but players "cannot meet [Unbound] through ordinary gameplay," the developer says.

Hoopa Unbound (see the creature's statistics below) carries rings that "have the power to bend dimensions and are said to allow it to seize anything in the world," reads a line from its official description. It is much larger than the original Hoopa form, and has six arms.

"The mystery around how Hoopa regains its true form, as well as the secret of meeting Hoopa itself, has yet to be revealed," The Pokemon Company said, adding that fans should "stay tuned" for more details on how to meet Hoopa in the game.

For a closer look at Hoopa Unbound, check out the video above and some stats below. The main form of Hoopa is the focal point of a new Pokemon movie called Hoopa and the Clash of Ages.

  • Category: Djinn Pokémon
  • Type: Psychic/Dark
  • Height: 21'04" [6.5 m]
  • Weight: 1,080.3 lbs. [490.0 kg]
  • Ability: Magician

@theonesofgames: You can't catch that many. Most games have only about 250 tops most of which you can only catch after finishing the game. There is actually not enough Pokemon to catch in most games and their distribution is still terrible.

So when did an evolved Pokemon become a "mysterious transformation"?

@b1ank: The article is wrong, it's a different/alternate form and not an evolution.

@DarkQuill@b1ank: Shouldn't really be numbered then. If it's just an alternate form then it should be considered like a Mega?

Hoopa is the 720th pokemon. 720 divided by 45 is 16. Abraham Lincoln was the 16th president. Abraham Lincoln wanted to abolish slavery. Ancient egyptians used slaves. Egyptians built pyramids. Pyramids have 3 sides. 3 times 2 is 6. 3 6 is 666. Hoopa = Illimunati CONFIRMED

@lankeydong: Pyramids have at least 4 sides...

Minimum of 3 angled faces, and then the bottom.

720? I used to be able to list them off. But that was back when I watched it on the television and played it on the Gameboy Color. The good old days.

It's not an evolution. It's an alternate form.

Looks dumb. Then again, my recent experiences with Pokemon have soured my view of the franchise, but even then, this looks stupid to me.

Reduce his number by exactly 300 and change just one letter in his name, and he'd be the perfect Pokeymanz.

"...the secret of meeting Hoopa itself, has yet to be revealed."

Unless you have an action replay and got one. Still, another won't hurt.
