Last week, the composer and game director at Game Freak, Junichi Masuda, teased that we would be getting news on the upcoming Pokemon games, Sun and Moon. Well, we finally got the news and it turns out to be pretty big news!
We got our first look at Pokemon Sun and Moon gameplay (as seen above) and a look at our starter Pokemon.
The trailer has detailed that we will be exploring the tropical region of Alola with the choice of Rowlet, Litten, Popplio. In addition to that, we got our first look at the legendaries for Sun and Moon, which have been rumored to be named "Solgaleo" and "Lunaala". Below, you'll find information on the starter Pokemon, as well as a look at part of the map and the legendaries.
Rowlet can attack without making a sound! It flies silently through the skies, drawing near to its opponent without being noticed, and then lashing out with powerful kicks. It can also attack from a distance using the razor-sharp leaves that form part of its feathers.
