If there’s one thing Pokemon has been doing right, it’s been staying on top of all these Sun and Moon announcements. Just when it seems that we’ve seen the last bit of news for Sun and Moon before the game’s release on November 18th, Pokemon drops a bomb with a 5 minute long trailer and tons of new information!
“Certain Pokemon are Thriving in Alola”
New Alolan forms of old Pokemon have come our way!
“More New Pokemon Discovered”
We’ve got brand new Pokemon to check out! Oricorio with unique dance styles based on region/island, Minior, Donald Gumshoos I MEAN JUST Gumshoos, Fomantis, Lurantis (with new move: Solar Blade), and Mudbray, the pre-evolved Mudsdale.
“Call on the Services of Ride Pokemon”
Every young trainer’s dream has come true! X and Y had introduced the idea of riding Pokemon in certain situations, but now we can ride Charizard, Tauros, Mudbray’s evolution, and others!
“The Island Challenge. Your Right of Passage”
Instead of typical Gyms and Gym Leaders, it looks like “The Island Challenge” will be substituting that concept. Aim to be the strongest trainer on the island! Meet the Trial Captains, and complete the assignments asked of you. It’s an interesting twist on Pokemon battling formula.
“Powerful Totem Pokemon Await”
Totem Pokemon are more powerful and can call allied Pokemon into battle.
“Battle the Kahunas”
“A New Way to Attack”
And last, but certainly not least, we dive into a brand new battle mechanic known as “Z-Moves”. Z-Moves, like Pikachu’s Gigavolt Havoc, are unleashed once per battle. There’s a Z-Move for every Type!
And of course, if you haven’t already, be sure to check out the trailer for yourself below! Thanks for viewing!
