Another Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon trailer was released this morning, this time, with details regarding the final starter evolutions and the island’s guardians.
This announcement trailer kicks off with the reveal of Decidueye, Incineroar, and Primarina who are the final evolutions for the game’s three starter Pokemon. Decidueye, who starts off as the grass starter Rowlett, is a Grass/Ghost type Pokemon. This Pokemon is capable of learning the unique move Spirit Shackle, preventing the opposing Pokemon from being switched out of battle.
The final evolution of Litten, Incineroar, is a Fire/Dark type Pokemon. Its signature move is Darkest Lariat, ignoring any of its opponent’s stat changes such as defense and Special defense stats. The third and final starter Pokemon Popplio will eventually evolve into Primarina, a Water/Fairy type. Primarina’s Signature move is Sparkling Aria, which will heal the “Burn” status effect of any Pokemon it targets.
Nintendo has released more information regarding the game’s island guardians, which will all make an appearance sometime during the game’s story. Tapu Lele, Tapu Bulu, and Tapu Fini will be joining the already announced Tapu Koko as the island “guardians.” These guardians will all share a unique Z-move and will presumably act as Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon’s legendary Pokemon.
Most of the information contained in today’s trailer was already leaked thanks to the dedicated data miners from the game’s demo. Thanks to the leak, we have already had a small glimpse at the final evolutions’ sprites, albeit we didn’t know information regarding the Pokemon names and types.
Last but certainly not least, Pokemon trainers Red & Blue will make an appearance towards the end of the adventure in Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. These trainers are from the first generation of Pokemon titles, Pokemon Red, Pokemon Blue, and Pokemon Yellow. As players progress through the game, they will eventually meet Red & Blue in battle, where they will fight with familiar Pokemon like Alakazam and Pikachu.
Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon releases on November 18th, 2016 for the Nintendo 3DS.
