As promised, the Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon starters are out May 10th, and they’re fast gaining popularity with Pokemon fans.
The Pokemon Company announced that the Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon will launch November 18th and as earlier teased by series producer Junichi Masuda, you can now watch the new trailer showing the starters and gameplay below.
The three Pokemon starters are a grass/flying-type owl Rowlet, Litten, a fiery kitten and a water-type seal Popplio. The trailer also reveals the Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon’s legendaries whose names are not revealed yet: a lion-like Pokemon and one that resembles a bat.
To help trainers choose which starter to use, The Pokemon Company also released the detailed descriptions with the official artwork of the Alola region’s Pokemon starters, Comicbook wrote.
Two-type "Grass Quill" Pokemon Rowlett is a Grass/Flying type that can attack soundlessly using both its razor sharp leaf feathers and claws in battle. It can see in the dark and twist its neck 180 degrees to receive instructions from its trainer. Rowlet has a new attack, Leafage, which is a leafy ranged attack thought to be similar in power to Ember and Bubble.
Litten, the "Fire Cat" Pokemon is the fire type starter of Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. Passionate but cool-headed, Litten has oily fur that is highly flammable and can attack by shooting out flaming furballs. It has the ability to combust spontaneously into a glorious blaze and starts the game with Ember.
The third and final Pokemon Popplio, is a "Sea Lion" Water type Pokemon starter that can make water balloons to do acrobatics on dry land. Described as the most mischievous among the new Pokemon starters, Popplio is hardworking but usually gets carried away with its playful antics in battle. It uses Water Gun attack to start the game.
According to Polygon, the Japanese trailer of Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon is longer and better than the English version. It contains more gameplay and includes the comeback of character customization originally seen from Pokemon X and Pokemon Y. Here’s the said trailer.
