Pokemon Sun + Moon

Today the final evolutions of Pokémon Sun and Moon’s Starters have been revealed! Rowlet, Litten and Popplio are named Decidueye, Incineroar and  Primarina.  Some new Pokémon have also been revealed. Cosmog is a very rare psychic type Pokémon, Alolan Persian is a dark Pokémon, and we were also told about three guardian deity Pokémon. Tapu Lele is a psychic/fairy Pokémon, Tapu Bulu a grass/fairy pokémon, and Tapu/Fini a water/fairy pokémon. All guardian deities can use a powerful Z move, Guardian of Alola, that  deals damage equivalent to 75% of the Pokémon’s target HP,while the guardian deity is sheltered. As you certainly noticed, Pokémon Sun and Moon seems to to give an important part to dual types Pokémon. Here are a few screenshots of the new Pokémon.

It seems that while Alola does not have a Pokémon League, one is in construction and may be available after completing challenges on the main island. It also  appears that, somewhere in the Battle Tree, this is a place where trainers who have completed the game challenge each other, or can even team up. You could meet Trainers Red and Blue from Kanto Region. Finally , here is a new video about those Pokémon.

    lol after reading the description to the final evolution, it did change my mind that they are not the worse. Only Rowlet is the worst. Litten got much better and especially the description on Inceneroar; Best partner I could have. Poppleo is still eh… Still don’t have a team for this region. Just my opinion on this.

    • Panpopo

      Regarding your team, you can just wing it as you go along as most of these games are very forgiving. My plan is to make a team of the most bizarre new pokemon (like sandcastle) I can find.

    • Miles

      lol I know but one of those things where I just have to have 6 for my team. Also its a bit harder since I made certain rules for myself when I play the game. No legendaries/deities and Only use the new pokemon (Not even the Alolan forms) for each region.

      Ohh~ I’m curious on what is in your team if you don’t mind me asking.
      Mine so far is Inceneroar, Lycanroc, salandit, and Komo-O.

    • Panpopo

      Right now my team is:

      Kotori bird starter
      Sandcastle
      Palm Tree
      Angry Melon Pan (Pyukumuku)
      Ice Vulpix

      I know the types dont balance but whatever lol. Not sure what else but that is the general plan

    • Miles

      lol who cares if it does not balance. As long as you like what you like then thats all fine and dandy. Pokemon I choose are the ones I really like. I don’t care if someone else say they’re dumb or ugly. Games are meant to be fun to all players not for the general acceptance. Like what you like and don’t let anybody (gamer or not) tell you otherwise.

  • Panpopo

    Like that the starters have unique moves and unique types. Gives them more personality.

  • Hogtree Octovish

    1a) Please don’t let Tony the Tiger be a Fighting-type. Please don’t let Tony the Tiger be a Fighting-type.
    Nope. It’s a Dark-type. Thank Arceus for that.
    Still gonna be my starter this gen.
    And I actually quite like the design.
    1b) Grass Owl’s final form looks cool too.
    Bit of a let-down from Edgeworth Bird. But it’s okay.
    (And the first dual-type starter to change it’s secondary type. Was hoping for Grass/Flying all the way down. But it’s fine.)
    1c) And Popplio just keeps getting worse.
    From a weird sealion clown thing (which while the worst of the Starter base forms, it was still kind of endearing), to whatever Brionne is, to some kind of dog faced mermaid thing. Ew.

    2) What the fuck have they done to Persian?!
    It looks like Garfield’s inbred cousin.

    3) 2:50 Wait. Is that Doshin the Giant? Cool.
    Also Moon’s psychotic grin. 🙁

    4) 3:50 Cynthia’s back.
    And Wally too. Nice.
    4b) And Red and Blue from … Red and Blue (And Yellow. And Gold, Silver and Crystal. And… You get where I’m going.)
    Red looks different. I’m not complaining. But he looks different as adult.
    Whereas Adult!Blue doesn’t look that much different to kid!Blue.
    And Red’s still got his Pikachu (of course).
    And Blue’s Alakazam is still there too.

    • Panpopo

      Lol at the Persian comment. It does look a little odd.

      I am glad they brought back the previous champions – it is nice to see them in 3d form. The World Tournament was one of my favorite parts of Black 2.

    • Miles

      Lol same It’d be nice to see all of the returning Champions/Elite Four/Gym Leaders/Important NPC/Rivals in the battle trees. But I’m not getting my hopes up since it may look like it would be too much for the game maybe.
