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.
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!
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.
20 years ago, Pokémon was born. Not long after, our addiction to the franchise was too. When we look back…Well, mainly we feel really old. That being said, we have a lot of great memories with Pokémon games.
Therefore we couldn’t be happier that two new games were announced February 26th. Early leaks and speculation already had the internet buzzing about Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, but it was confirmed during a Nintendo direct in which they showed the announcement trailer.
We’ve only seen this little guy’s wireframe, but he’ll probably be one of the first we learn more about.
An all new region and an all new generation of Pokémon for us to explore. Honestly, we can’t wait! Let’s look at what we know so far.
