Hoopa Becomes Unbound!


Yesterday we mentioned Hoopa had another form. Today Nintendo officially announced it.

Referred to as Hoopa Unbound, the Djinn Pokemon has a much more imposing appearance than the squeaky thing Ash is going to meet in that movie. In the video below, you can see how it works in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. It has six dislocated arms floating in midair, from which it can launch a barrage of golden rings so numerous it would make a blue hedgehog want to sue.

Please note that this version of Hoopa has also been found in the data for Pokemon X and Y. For whatever reason Nintendo is suggesting in the press material the Pokemon is exclusive to Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, but that appears to not be true. Whether they make Hoopa officially available across all current games is the unknown question.

We don’t know how Hoopa will be made available in Ruby or Sapphire either yet. Nintendo will announce events to make it unlockable soon. Until then, here are some stats for you:


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