A new trailer has arrived for Pokémon Sun and Moon. The 7th generation of Pokémon is here and it is glorious. The new trailer shows off the three new starter Pokémon and the new region called Alola. It looks like Pokémon-filled version of Hawaii full of lush greenery, tall volcanoes, and islands to explore. Check out more after the jump to see just what these starters look like and when you’ll be able to get your hands on the three of them.
Now time to introduce the 3 special Pokémon that new trainers will have to choose from when starting their adventure. You have the grass/flying type Rowlet. “Rowlet can attack without making a sound! It flies silently through the skies, drawing near to its opponent without being noticed, and then lashing out with powerful kicks. It can also attack from a distance using the razor-sharp leaves that form part of its feathers.”
A very cute fiery kitten known as Litten; “logical but also passionate, Litten always remains cool-headed and doesn’t show its emotions on the surface.”
and an energetic little seal that goes by the name of Popplio. “Popplio’s swimming speed is known to exceed 25 mph. It’s better at moving in the water than on land. Still, when it’s on land, it takes advantage of the elasticity of its balloons to perform acrobatic stunts and jumps.”
Pokemon Sun and Moon looks nothing like the France themed region of Kalos. The camera is completely behind the main character and the avatars are no longer “miniature”.
The two new legendary spokes-Pokemon were also shown in the trailer. A huge, what looks like to be, Lion is shown for Pokemon Sun and a monstrous black bat seems to be the legendary for Moon. The game is to be released exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS on November 18th 2016. You can take a look at the beautiful trailer down below if you want.
X and Y lacked something that I deeply want in a new Pokemon title, which is awesome creature designs. Let’s hope that this new generation of Pokemon does the series justice. I want something to sink my teeth into for countless hours again!
Who will you be choosing?
