A brand new trailer for the next entry in the Pokemon series has arrived and revealed brand new gameplay and details about the highly anticipated Pokemon Sun and Moon.
We now know the names of the new legendaries that adorn the box art of the games plus a number of new characters we will meet.
Solgaleo – Is the legendary from the Pokemon Sun boxart – It is a Psychic/Steel-type Pokemon with the Full Metal Body ability and a new move called Sunsteel Strike. It’s Bio reads:
Category: Sunne Pokémon
Weight: 507.1 lbs.
Ability: Full Metal Body
Honoured as an emissary of the sun since ancient times, Solgaleo is referred to with reverence as “the beast that devours the sun.” Solgaleo’s body holds a vast amount of energy, and it shines with light when it is active. It has a flowing mane with a remarkable resemblance to the sun. Its signature move is Sunsteel Strike, an attack that charges at an opponent with the force of a meteor, disregarding the target’s Ability. Solgaleo’s Ability is Full Metal Body, a new Ability that no previous Pokémon has had. With the Full Metal Body Ability, a Pokémon’s stats will not be lowered by the effects of an opponent’s moves or Ability.
Lunala – Is the legendary from the Pokemon the Moon boxart. It is a Psychic/Ghost-type with the Shadow Shield ability and a new Moongeist Beam move. It’s bio reads:
Category: Moone Pokémon
Weight: 264.6 lbs.
Ability: Shadow Shield
Since ancient times, Lunala has been honoured as an emissary of the moon. Referred to with reverence as “the beast that calls the moon,” Lunala is constantly absorbing light and converting it into energy. With its wings spread to absorb the surrounding light and glittering like the crescent moon, it resembles a beautiful night sky. Lunala’s signature Moongeist Beam attack releases an ominous beam of light that disregards the target’s Ability.
Lunala’s Ability is Shadow Shield, a new Ability that no previous Pokémon has had. With the Shadow Shield Ability, a Pokémon will take less damage from an attack that lands when the Pokémon has full HP.
The Pokemon Company website has revealed even more details on the character, as well as the region our adventure will take place in. Allola is based on Hawai and appears to be made up of four large islands and plenty of smaller islands.
The website also revealed a new feature – Sun and Moon will come with a QR code scanner. Players can use QR codes to help locate unseen Pokemon, the QR codes can be shared between players and will no doubt be found elsewhere in promotions etc.
Pokemon Sun and Moon will be released for Nintendo 3DS on November 23rd in the UK. The U.S will get it a tad earlier on November 18th.
