Espurr in Pokemon GO is one of the rumored newest additions to the game.

Niantic Labs has been adding new Pokemon left, right, and center since its release back in July 2016. From fan-favorite Pikachu to the powerful dragon-type Hydreigon, new releases are no surprise to veteran Pokemon GO trainers. Imagine their surprise, however, when the latest teaser for the implementation of Kalos Pokemon revealed Espurr may be joining the game?

Here’s what we can tell you about Espurr.

Unfortunately, Espurr isn’t available in Pokemon GO just yet. Some trainers suspect it will be implemented alongside the rest of the Kalos region. Others, however, think that it may be released on its own due to its notoriety.

Espurr is a pure psychic-type from the Kalos region. It’s PokeDex number is 677 and has an evolved form, Meowstic. So far, we know it will have a CP ceiling of around 1400, attack stat of ~120, defense of ~114, and stamina of ~159. It’s quick move pool includes Confusion and Scratch while its charged move pool has Energy Ball, Psychic, and Psyshock.

As a pure psychic-type, Espurr will likely appear more frequently on bright, sunny days. Information about its egg distance group has yet to be confirmed.

Espurr’s PokeDex description describes the Pokemon as an intensely powerful psychic-type possessing an organ from which it emits its power. Its ears are folded in such a way to keep the power from leaking out.
