New Pokemon Sun and Moon Trailer Introduces Legendaries, Professor Oak’s Cousin


The Pokemon Company has shared a new trailer for both Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon in Japan.

Featured above, the new trailer introduces both legendary Pokemon Solgaleo and Lunala. There’s also a very brief look at a character named Samson Oak – his surname is no coincidence.

Samson is actually the cousin of Professor Oak (via 4Gamer), and you can see a brief look at him at the 1:31 mark in the above trailer.

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

    This is just Oak in blackface trying to avoid all those molestation lawsuits.

    If only it wasn’t destined to be an on rails RPG with a Playschool level of difficulty that has a beyond forgettable story.

    That Professor Oak is obviously white. Stop whitewashing our Oaks, Gamefreak.

    guess that’s the alolan variation of oaks, adapted to the tropical climate they became more melanin enriched and gained a mullet, increasing their kawabonga too

    additionally it pretty much confirms that alolan raichu evolves from regular pikachu, same as alolan marrowak

    but none of that matters because LOOK WICKE AT 1:21 !!!!

    here’s some barely PG Wicke

    at least the 3DS has been hacked so if we wait a while someone will release a modded version of the game

    one which actually presents an engaging and moderately challenging experience which can actually present situations requiring effort to tackle and providing dopamine upon their completion

    star saphire and rutile ruby were pretty good

    I didn’t know they had mods like that, nice to see though, making the game actually difficult. Hell, that’s why I avoided ORAS in the first place, since I knew it’d be even easier than X/Y was. I hope we get another tiddy mod like ORAS did though.

    Oh, it’s professor Woke. I guess that means he’s not actually a professor and will encourage the alolans to riot without a clear goal.

    The lack of gyms and proper “bosses” (the totem Pokemon) showed potential for something interesting.
    But, the “trials” we’ve seen so far seem simple (Collect X items, whats the difference between these dances), and the meta could still be broken as hell.

    So Sun and Moon Pokemon came down to whatever planet Pokemon is on and started a fight? Are we seeing the emergence of the Godzilla series in Pokemon.

    Different doesn’t mean better. The trial/kahunas seem to be at best; another way to make the game easier than it already was by making the gyms about fetch quests as you have said.

    Doesn’t excuse it.

    You’re completely right, it would only if they let us see them naked and fuck them with VR.
