Four new Pokemon were announced for inclusion in Pokemon Sun & Pokemon Moon.
Starting off with the brand new team-oriented fighting type Pokemon, Passimian. His new ability ‘Receiver’ allows for it to copy the ability of a fallen ally’s Pokemon. This is also the first Pokemon announced to be a version exclusive to Pokemon Sun.
Those planning to purchase a copy of Pokemon Moon can look out for the version exclusive normal-psychic type Pokemon, Oranguru. He will contain an exclusive Pokemon move called instruct which will force a Pokemon to re-use its last move.
Rockluff, the previously announced Pokemon has also received some evolution updates. Evolving Rockluff into Lycanroc provides a different form in both Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. In Pokemon Moon, Lycanroc stands on his hind legs sporting red fur with matching red eyes. Whereas in Pokemon Sun, it resembles the appearance of a dog, wearing a lighter color fur.
Lastly, it is revealed that there would be Pokemon-specific Z-moves as opposed to just the specific types announced earlier. First Generation Pokemon, Pikachu and Eevee, have so far been selected to feature these unique Z-moves. Pikachu looks to bring a powerful move called Catasropika, which unleashes a powerful electric headbutt to the opposing Pokemon. Eevee, on the other hand, summons all of its evolutions to give itself a boost in stats.
Pokemon Sun & Pokemon Moon will be arriving for the Nintendo 3DS on November 18th, 2016.
