“Welcome to paradise, cousin. This is the Alola region!”
Good morning one and all, Pokéfans!
If you found yourself awake this morning, your eyes were just graced with the newest Pokémon Sun Version and Pokémon Moon Version trailer!
We were introduced to quite a few characters today, but the main focus was on the unveiling of the three starter Pokémon!
Alongside the trailer, the new Pokémon Sun and Moon website launched with even more starter details and photos!Rowlet is the grass starter for this generation. Rowlet is also a flying type so if folks are looking to have a strong flying type Pokémon, you may need to look no further than this feathery pal. Just look at that dapper grass bowtie!
The website appears to come with the Pokémon’s Pokédex entry!
“Rowlet can attack without making a sound! It flies silently through the skies, drawing near to its opponent without being noticed, and then lashing out with powerful kicks. It can also attack from a distance using razor-sharp leaves that form part of its feathers.”Litten is the fire starter of the Alola region. Litten is a tiny fire kitten, but if we know Pokémon, its later evolutions will really show what this Pokémon can do. Also, keep your eyes peeled! It has flames that pop up on its back during its attacks!
Another Pokedex entry is up for Litten!
“Logical but also passionate, Litten always remains coolheaded and doesn’t show its emotions on the surface.”Popplio is our friendly water type Pokémon. It appears to be a cross between a seal and a clown. Popplio packs the most outgoing personality out of the new Pokémon trio. It’s always good to have a strong water Pokémon, and Popplio looks to be a lot of fun!
And of course, Popplio has its Pokédex entry included as well!
“Popplio’s swimming speed is known to exceed 25 mph. It’s better at moving in the water than on land. Still, when it’s on land, it takes advantage of the elasticity of its balloons to perform acrobatic stunts and jumps.”
After displaying more of the “Island Theme” locales, (I really feel the Hawaiian influence) We were finally introduced to the mascot legendary Pokémon!There is the sunny looking lion type Pokémon who will grace the cover of Pokemon Sun Version and a Moon-esque bat-esque Pokémon set on the cover of Moon Version. They two currently remain unnamed.
Japan also released their own trailer for the upcoming games! Feel free to check it out and compare the differences! This video explores the journey of a young boy as he travels to a “new region” filled with new experiences and of course, Pokémon!
The year is still young with plenty of room for more Pokémon 20th Anniversary celebrations!
Catch you later!!
