Final Starter Evolutions, New Pokemon, Alolan Forms, More Revealed for Pokemon Sun and Moon

The Pokemon Company has revealed new information, gameplay, screenshots, Pokemon, and more for Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon.

The game’s starter Pokemon final evolutions have been revealed alongside four new Pokemon, the Battle Tree, as well as the Alolan variant of Persian. Featured above, you can view a new trailer for today’s reveal.

You can find all the information below, via Nintendo:


pokemon-sun-moon-10-27-16-1

Decidueye
Type: Grass/Ghost
The Arrow Quill Pokémon Decidueye is the fully evolved form of the Grass- and Flying-type first-partner Pokémon Rowlet. Decidueye attacks with astonishing speed, plucking arrow quills from its wings to send them hurtling towards its target with precise aim. This Pokémon is able to move about whilst completely masking its presence from others. Decidueye is the only Pokémon that can learn the move Spirit Shackle. This new Ghost-type move hits an opponent and makes it unable to leave the battle—it can’t flee or switch out.

pokemon-sun-moon-10-27-16-2

Incineroar
Type: Fire/Dark
The Heel Pokémon Incineroar is the fully evolved form of the Fire-type first-partner Pokémon Litten. As Incineroar’s fighting spirit increases, the flames it produces within its body burst from its navel and waistline. These flames resemble a championship belt, which it uses to unleash its moves. Incineroar is the only Pokémon able to learn the move Darkest Lariat. This new Dark-type physical attack allows Incineroar to deal damage to an enemy whilst ignoring the effects of any stat changes on that enemy.

pokemon-sun-moon-10-27-16-3

Primarina
Type: Water/Fairy
The Soloist Pokémon Primarina is the fully evolved form of the Water-type first-partner Pokémon Popplio. As Primarina dances, it releases balloons of water and controls their movement using the sound waves from its voice. Primarina uses some of these balloons to jump on and maneuver in battle whilst others explode when touched, which can trigger chained explosions. Primarina is the only Pokémon that can learn Sparkling Aria, a new Water-type special move which heals the burns of any target it strikes.

Cosmog
Type: Psychic
The Nebula Pokémon Cosmog is extremely rare, known only to a select few across Alola. Named by the Aether Foundation, Cosmog is very curious, and its gaseous body is so lightweight that it’s sent flying when the wind blows. When light falls on the Pokémon, Cosmog can absorb it and grow bigger.

pokemon-sun-moon-10-27-16-8

Alolan Persian
Type: Dark
Alolan Persian is highly intelligent and doesn’t like to grow attached to its Trainer, making it something of a difficult Pokémon to have as a battle partner. The round face of Alolan Persian is a symbol of the rich Alola region, and it is held to be a Pokémon of great beauty. Its exquisite coat shines with the glow of high quality and enchants both humans and Pokémon. For this reason, it is a very popular Pokémon in the Alola region.


Also unveiled were three Alola region guardian deities—Tapu Lele, Tapu Bulu and Tapu Fini:

pokemon-sun-moon-10-27-16-6

Tapu Lele
Type: Psychic/Fairy
Tapu Lele is the guardian deity of Akala island. This Pokémon scatters glowing scales that have physical effects on others—providing stimulation to their bodies and healing their illnesses or injuries. Tapu Lele has the Ability Psychic Surge, an Ability that no other Pokémon has previously had. With Psychic Surge, the field will be turned into Psychic Terrain, which boosts the power of any Psychic-type moves used by Pokémon on the ground and prevents them from being hit by priority moves.

pokemon-sun-moon-10-27-16-5

Tapu Bulu
Type: Grass/Fairy
Tapu Bulu is the guardian deity of Ula’ula Island. This Pokémon has the power to manipulate vegetation and cause it to grow. It can use this power to make its wooden horns change shape and grow larger. Tapu Bulu has the Ability Grassy Surge, an Ability that no other Pokémon has previously had. With Grassy Surge, the field will be turned into Grassy Terrain, boosting the power of any Grass-type moves used by Pokémon on the ground and restoring a bit of HP to them each turn. It also halves the damage taken from the moves Earthquake, Magnitude and Bulldoze.

pokemon-sun-moon-10-27-16-7

Tapu Fini
Type: Water/Fairy
Tapu Fini is the guardian deity of Poni Island. This Pokémon is able to attack by manipulating water. It does not like to risk being harmed during battle, so it creates a thick fog to disorient its opponents and lead them to their own destruction. Tapu Fini has the Ability Misty Surge, an Ability that no other Pokémon has previously had. With Misty Surge, the field will be turned into Misty Terrain, halving the damage taken by Pokémon on the ground from Dragon-type moves and preventing them from being afflicted with status conditions or confusion.

In previous adventures in the Pokémon series, the Pokémon League was always the ultimate stage for battle. 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?

pokemon-sun-moon-10-27-16-9Somewhere in Alola, you’ll find the Battle Tree. It’s a place where Trainers who have completed their island challenge, or who are strong enough to have done so, battle one another. You can scout an opponent you’ve battled against so they can partner and fight alongside you in future battles. You may even see some familiar faces, including the Trainers Red and Blue from the Kanto region!

pokemon-sun-moon-10-27-16-10

All of the guardian deities can use the special Z-Move Guardian of Alola. When using this Z-Move, the Pokémon closes its shell and a huge avatar appears from the ground to attack the opposing Pokémon, dealing damage equal to 75 percent of the target’s remaining HP.


Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon are launching for the Nintendo 3DS on November 18th in North America and November 23rd in Europe.

    Red tried to go for the jock look, but couldn’t let go of his title as Pokemon Master which leads to the manchild that he is now.

    If it hadn’t been for it looking to be high octane furry fuel with a neutered version of the Orange Islands, etc; the nostalgia trip might’ve been a critical hit to my stance on not buying it.

    On one hand I don’t want to complain that the final evo for the fire type isn’t fire-fighting again, but on the other for once it actually makes sense. I mean he’s a pro wrestler type like machamp or something.

    Other than that I dig the red/blue cameos since they do something new with old faces though the picture of Cynthia at the bottom makes me worry they’re the exception rather than the rule.

    He’s literally a Heel Pokémon. He’s the villain of Wrestling matches ;3
    Also Red and Blue had no updated faces in recent gens, while Cynthia is more recent.

    Surprised no one is mentioning Primarina’s Sparkling Aria: It cures burns?

    Is this a Burn variation of Smelling Salts? And if so, will Primarina have access to Scald?

    Not like Blue, who probably came to the island for alolan pussy hunting.

    Probably, and I think almost every water type can get Scald except for pokemon like Magikarp or Feebas. There’s always the chance that Scald may no longer be a TM though.

    I get the impression Red’s supposed to represent the gamers who started out with the original games, but still haven’t been able to let go of the games by now… basically adults clinging desperately to those teen glory years.

    I also like the implication of some character growth for Red and Green, with the former now seeming more serious than ever, while the latter appears to actually have some fun instead now. They basically each ended up adopting the other’s original mindset.

    People are hating on Red’s look but that’s how guys dress here (t-shirt, jeans, sneakers, sometimes cap) when outdoors, in Trinidad, which is a tropical island.

    The clothes Blue is wearing (complete with shades) remind me of tourists who come to the island.

    Heck, that’s how people dress here pretty much, except with hoodies cause wet and cold Washington.

    Blue definitely looks like he’s expecting a vacation, while Red is ready for business. Some things never change I guess.;)

    I hate Reds look because he doesnt look badass anymore, he looks just like a regular trainer, they should have went with maintaining his image like with Cynthia, who looks great as ever.
    And im liking the guardian dities a lot, at least design-wise.
