Mimikyu will be getting an exclusive new Z-Move in Pokemon Ultra Sun & Moon.
The Z-Move, adorably named “Let’s Snuggle Forever,” can be used by the terrifying Pokemon if it’s holding the Mimikium Z and knows the move Play Rough. According to the official Pokemon website, Let’s Snuggle Forever promises to be much more powerful than Twinkle Tackle, the Z-Move Mimikyu and every other Fairy-type Pokemon can use if they hold the Fairium Z and know a Fairy-type move.
The move’s animation has Mimikyu dash around the enemy before enveloping the target under it’s costume. Fans of the previous entry, Pokemon Sun & Moon, will recall that Mimikyu wears it’s costume to take on the appearance of the beloved Pikachu and hide its horrifying true form. Mimikyu then beats up the target while both of them are under the costume. The trainer seems totally okay with this as they give a thumbs up during the animation.
Mimikyu isn’t the only Pokemon to receive new Z-Moves in Pokemon Ultra Sun & Moon, according to the official Pokemon website. Solgaleo can use the move Searing Sunraze Smash if it knows Sunsteel Strike and is holding the Solganium Z. Lunala can use Menacing Moonraze Maelstrom if it knows Moongeist Beam and is holding the Lunalium Z. Both attacks not only damage a target but do so while ignoring the effects of the target’s ability. Since Necrozma can learn both Sunsteel Strike and Moongeist Beam, it can also use the exclusive Z-Moves if it’s holding the corresponding Z-Crystal.
