Last weekend I was at a Gaming event in the Netherlands called Firstlook. I wrote a first impression event report for Female-gamers, which you can find here (although it is in dutch). However, at this event Nintendo was giving out codes for the mythical Pokemon Hoopa. This code is usable in Pokemon X/Y and Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire. Hoopa has now joined my team in Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, but Hoopa is a level 50 Pokemon so I cannot use it in battle yet. However, after I received my code I thought it would be fun to write a small article about the latest addition to my team. Who is Hoopa?
As mentioned before, Hoopa is a mythical ghost/psychic Pokemon. He has two different forms namely Hoopa Confined and Hoopa Unbound. Hoopa confined, the psychic/ghost Pokemon, seems to be its general cute form that you see on different images. Hoopa confined’s main ability revolves around teleportation and teleporting just about everything to a secret place. His special attack is called Hyperspace Hole. By using a prison bottle Hoopa confined can be transformed into Hoopa unbound, which can be considered Hoopa’s true form, although I’m more of a fan of the cuter confined form. Hoopa unbound is a psychic/dark Pokemon and seems to be a powerhouse. It is said that he can bend dimensions. In the anime Hoopa Unbound even has the ability to summon and control legendary Pokemon. Lastly Hoopa Unbound has a signature move named Hyperspace fury.
Hoopa is described as a djinn/mischief Pokemon and his appearance seems to be derived from the djinn image. Although many other influences can be found in Hoopa’s design. The confined version can be considered the little mischief Pokemon, with his teleportation trick, whereas the unbound version is the almighty djinn Pokemon. Lastly this mischief Pokemon was introduced in generation six.
I hope that this post has informed you a little about this new mythical Pokemon. There is a lot more to talk about when it comes to this unique Pokemon, but I didn’t want to go into extreme detail. I cannot wait to see this mischievous Pokemon fight in battle and to see what he can actually do. What do you think about this new Pokemon? Did you manage to get this Pokemon already? Let me know in the comments and I’ll talk to you soon.
