New Pokemon Sun And Moon Trailer Reveals Final Evolution of Starters And More

Pokemon Sun and Moon  got a new trailer, which shows off a bunch of new Pokemon, so if you’re going on media blackout until the games come out and don’t want to hear anymore, close this window right now, because we are going to spoil this hard. This is your only warning.

Right, so one of the big reveals that came from this trailer is that the final evolutions of each of the game’s starters, Rowlet, Litten,  and Popplio, were finally revealed. They’re the Ghost/Grass type Decidueye, the Dark/Fire Type Incineroar, and the Water/Fairy type Primarina. One of things I liked about Pokemon X and Y was the fact that the final evolution of the starters mixed things up with their types (Chesnaught was Grass/Fighting, Delphox was Fire/Psychic, Greninja was Water/Dark), so it’s nice to see Game Freak continue this with Pokemon Sun and Moon.

The other big reveal was the reveal of three new Alola Guardian Deities: Tapu Lele, Tapu Bulu and Tapu Fini. All of the guardian deities can use the special Z-Move called Guardian of Alola, which deals damage equal to 75 percent of the target’s HP. Finally, it was revealed that unlike previous games, the Pokemon League is still under construction. “In previous adventures in the Pokémon series, the Pokémon League was always the ultimate stage for battle”, Nintendo writes. “The Pokémon League housed the Elite Four (four Pokémon Trainers with powerful Pokémon partners) and the Champion (who reigned as the region’s top Trainer), all awaiting challengers. In the Alola region, there is no Pokémon League yet—but it seems that there are plans to construct one at the peak of a certain mountain. After your major achievement in completing the island challenge, will the day come when you also take on the Pokémon League to become the strongest Pokémon Trainer?”

Completing the League will unlock a new area called the Battle Tree, which will let players battle with and against popular Trainers from the series past. I won’t spoil it here, but longtime fans of the series will get a kick out of it, especially the last two Trainers shown in the trailer, which you can check out below. Pokemon Sun and Moon will release on November 18th exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS.
