This article will outline the English name updates and other additional information released on the official website. For initial reveal information, please see this article.

Tapu Koko, the Land Spirit Pokémon, is the guardian of Melemele Island. Its ability is known as Electric Surge in English. The attack it uses in the video is known as Nature's Madness, which reduces the opponent's health by half.

Charjabug, the Battery Pokémon, was confirmed to be the evolved form of Grubbin. Its ability is known as Battery, which allows it to raise the power of an ally's special moves.

Vikavolt, the Stag Beetle Pokémon, has the ability Levitate. It is known to carry Charjabug into battle for an extra power boost.

Drampa is known as the Placid Pokémon and can come with either the Berserk or Sap Sipper ability. Using Berserk, Drampa raises its Special Attack by 1 when its health drops below half.

Cutiefly, which can come with either Honey Gather or Shield Dust, is known as the Bee Fly Pokémon. They are drawn by emotions.
