There’s no turning back now. “Pokémon Sun” and “Pokémon Moon” are coming this November, and if you have yet to board the hype train, the newest teaser trailer for the Nintendo 3DS-exclusive RPGs will give you more reasons to do so. Not only does it feature new version-exclusive Pokémon, it also showcases very interesting things about the game, like Eevee’s superb Z-Move.
The latest “Pokémon Sun and Moon” trailer, which was uploaded on The Official Pokémon Channel on YouTube just minutes ago, starts with the introduction of new version-exclusive Pokémon that are from the primate group (sorry but no Harambe Pokémon just yet). The first Pokémon, which is “Pokémon Sun”-exclusive, is Passimian. It is described as a Fighting-type Pokémon with the unique Ability called Receiver. By the looks of it, this Ability lets Passimian borrow its ally Pokémon’s power for its own benefit during a battle.
Meanwhile, the “Pokémon Moon-exclusive Pokémon introduced in the new trailer is Oranguru. It is a Normal/Psychic-type Pokémon that has Inner Focus/Telepathy Ability. It also has a special move called Instruct that conveniently allows it to instruct its ally Pokémon to attack during a battle. When its ally Pokémon unleashes its strong attack, Oranguru has the advantage of not being affected by it.
The new “Pokémon Sun and Moon” trailer also showcases the evolved forms of Rockruff, which as previously reported takes a different form depending on the time of the day it evolves. However, the trailer confirms that Rockruff's evolved form would be different for each version of the game. The Lycanroc Midday Form, which has the Keen Eye/Sand Rush Ability, is teased to be part of “Pokémon Sun,” while Lycanroc Midnight Form, which has Keen Eye/Vital Spirit Ability, appears to be exclusive only to “Pokémon Moon.”
In addition, the trailer announces that players can “be fashion-forward in Alola” through its character customization options and the Pokémon Refresh feature that allows Trainers to groom their Pokémon to keep them looking fresh and healthy. This just means that both the Trainer and his or her Pokémon can be groomed to look good while exploring the Alola region.
Finally, the new “Pokémon Sun and Moon” trailer gives expectant fans a sneak peek into the Z-Moves of Pikachu and Eevee. Pikachu’s Z-Move is called Catastropika, and it involves tossing the famous Pokémon upward for it to roll into a ball of electricity before hitting its opponent. While Pikachu’s Z-Move looks interesting and powerful, fans would be even more delighted to know what Eevee has to offer.
Apparently, Eevee’s Z-Move is called Extreme Evoboost and it is named that way to imply what is involved in the special attack. Once the Trainer is done activating Eevee’s Z-Move, the Pokémon will summon all eight of its evolved forms, namely: Flareon, Jolteon, Vaporeon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Sylveon and Glaceon. Its evolved forms would then surround it and channel their powers to the pre-evolved form, so the latter’s Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense and Speed would rise sharply.
“Pokémon Sun” and “Pokémon Moon” are slated for release on Nov. 18. Check out the games’ newest teaser trailer below and tell us what you think.
