Pokémon Sun and Moon Round-up 3: The Latest Trailer!

IT’S NOT FIRE/FIGHTING, IT’S NOT FIRE/FIGHTING, IT’S NOT FIRE/FIGHTING!

Welcome to the final part of our round-up! Part 1 talked about an earlier trailer and part 2 about the demo available in the eShop.

A few days ago we got a new trailer with some pretty special Pokémon. Not only did it show off the protectors for the remaining three islands, but it also showed us the final evolutions of our starter Pokémon!

The bad news: The Chinese leak was basically 100% correct and we still don’t really like these designs much.

The good news: Litten’s final evolution is not Fire/Fighting!

Pokémon Sun and Moon: New Pokémon, Ultra Beasts and the Aether Foundation!

TELLING US A LOT, WITHOUT TELLING US MUCH

Another trailer, another load of information to go through! We are noticing a bit of a pattern by now of the trailers throwing concepts at our head with no real details, which is getting a bit annoying, but there are clearly some new things we can talk about.

Pokémon Sun and Moon: Pokémon, Theories and Rumors

SOME CERTAINTY AND A FAIR BIT OF SPECULATION

So, another trailer hit the net and we have some new Pokémon to talk about. However, that’s not the only thing we’ll be doing. We’ve not really talked about fan theories or anything of the sort yet, as those are generally disproven, but a few were either detailed enough to be interesting or still haven’t been entirely debunked.

As such, we’ll look at the new Pokémon first and then talk about some theories and rumours.

(More) Pokémon Sun and Moon news: Part 1 – The Pokémon

SOME NEW FACES (AND SOME OLD ONES)

Well, another Pokémon Sun and Moon trailer dumped a load of info in our laps a few days ago. We actually hadn’t talked about two older trailers yet and we do want to address at least part of those. We’re once again splitting the article in two, with one this part talking about the Pokémon and the second part talking about some mechanics we’ve seen and the recently revealed Team Skull.

That being said, we’re not talking about all Pokémon from the last few trailers. We’ll mention those that stood out to us from the older trailers and focus on the new Pokémon in the most recent trailer, the CoroCoro magazine leak and the Alolan forms.

If you want to skip right to the gameplay features, you can find part 2 here. If not, let’s talk Pokémon!

Pokémon Sun and Moon: News and Speculation!

TELLING US A LOT, WHILE NOT TELLING US ALL THAT MUCH

Look, Nintedo and E3 just don’t really go together. They’ve already given up on holding actual conferences like most of their competitors do and instead focus on their Nintendo Treehouse streams. The lack of spectacle, though, often makes them seems rather disappointing by comparison, whether that is justified or not.

Still, at least they started with the games we actually wanted to hear about. Zelda looks like it will be amazing and Pokémon Sun and Moon…Okay, yeah, they immediately dropped the ball again after Zelda. Above you’ll find a new trailer, released after the Tree house stream, and below we’re going into what we learned from both that and the stream.

Pokémon Sun and Moon: New Trailer, New Region and New legendaries!

OWLS AND CATS AND SEA LIONS, OH MY!

Well, we’ve got a fair bit of information to work through. We got the name of this new region and saw a bit of it, got to know our starters and even met the two showcase legendaries.

Or…Well…We saw the legendaries, we just have no idea what they’re called yet. Either way, after a pretty long silence on the matter, we finally have new material to analyse and overthink!
