Final Evolutions For Pokemon Sun And Moon’s Starters Officially Revealed In Latest Trailer


We already kinda knew what the final evolutions of Pokemon Sun and Moon‘s starters looked like prior to today thanks to the various leaks from last week’s demo, but today’s trailer has given each one a name and shown them in action.

Rowlet, Litten and Popplio’s final forms are Decidueye, Incineroar and Primarina respectively, and at least one of them is likely to have a type that you won’t have seen coming. See the details for each below:


  • Type: Grass/Ghost
  • Ability: Overgrow
  • Special Move: Spirit Shackle


  • Type: Fire/Dark
  • Ability: Blaze
  • Special Move: Darkest Lariat


  • Type: Water/Fairy
  • Ability: Torrent
  • Special Move: Sparkling Aria

That’s not all the new info, though, The Pokemon Company’s still got a few surprises up its sleeves that weren’t spoiled by the demo leaks. Pokemon Sun and Moon‘s Alola region is made up of various islands that the player will travel to during the course of the game, with each being home to a special guardian that will need to be fought in some fashion.

Tapu Lele, Tapu Bulu and Tapu Mini join Tapu Koko to form the four guardians, each exhibiting its own unique form and abilities. What’s more, they share a unique Z-Move which…well, words can’t really describe its nature – you’ll just have to watch it be performed in the trailer above.

Rounding out the rest of the video are more details concerning this Generation’s Pokemon League. Unlike before, the ultimate competition to decide who’s the greatest Pokemon Trainer is yet to exist, and you’ll have a hand in creating it. What’s more, past champions – including Blue and Red from the original games – will be present and ready to battle you in the new Battle Tree feature.

Pokemon Sun and Moon are looking more and more likely to take the crown of best Pokemon game ever with each new reveal, and we can’t wait to Catch ‘Em All again come November 18.
