WTF Are These Lame New Pokémon?

Images of seven new Pokémon taken from new gameplay footage of Sun and Moon leaked via 4chan last night, and have since been confirmed in a new trailer that appeared on YouTube. They look rubbish.

Let's take a closer look at these dingdongs:

Charjabug here is literally just a box with eyes drawn on it. (It's Bug/Electric.)

Togedemaru is another electric mouse. Its expression here is about the same as mine right now. (Electric/Steel)

Tapukoko is... I don't even know what this is. Some kind of Fairy/Electric embodiment of confusion.

Yeesh. The starters I could get behind, but these? Not inspiring.
