The Pokemon Company has delivered as promised new details for their upcoming game Pokemon Sun and Moon. Now meet the new Legendaries Solgaleo and Lunala.
The Pokemon Sun and Moon Legendaries made their full debut in the latest trailer released on June 2. The footage shows Solgaleo and Lunala’s types and special moves as well as the characters that trainers will meet in Alola region. And yes, the island of Alola region is clearly based from Hawaii! Watch the latest trailer below.
Solgaleo is a psychic/steel-type Pokemon with lion-like features, Full Metal Body ability and Sunsteel Strike move. While Lunala is a psychic/ghost-type that looks like a bat with Shadow Shield ability and Moongeist Beam move. The new Legendaries’ Sunsteel Strike and Moongeist Beam will disregard whatever abilities of the Pokemon they strike.
The latest trailer introduced the characters Professor Kukui, his mysterious assistant Lillie, and a friend in Alola region named Hau. Rotom, the Pokemon that can possess any household appliances and was launched in Diamond & Pearl is now among the "next generation of Pokedexes," and can communicate with trainers.
Here’s also the latest trailer featured in the Japanese Pokemon YouTube channel. Polygon reported that it shows more of the Alola region for 13 seconds: its tropical breeze and the beaches.
According to the Pokemon Sun and Moon website, the game will have a QR Scanner that scans QR Code patterns to enable trainers to see information about Pokemon. By scanning the QR Code patterns, the Pokemon of the Alola region will be registered to the trainer’s Pokedex, and if it’s not captured yet, the trainer can check the Pokemon’s habitat and look for it. The QR Code patterns can be shared with other trainers too, and they can also register the Pokemon in their own Pokedexes.
Meanwhile, Nintendo has announced the inclusion of Pokemon Sun and Moon in its E3 presentations this month. The game will be featured in the Nintendo Treehouse livestream on June 14th along with The Legend of Zelda Wii U. Nintendo also announced that it will be hosting a Pokemon GO Q&A session with one of the game’s developers on June 15th.
Pokemon Sun and Moon release date is November 18 for Japan and US and November 23 for UK.
