Default Say Aloha to Alola! New Pokemon Sun and Moon information revealed!

So today was massive day in the world of Pokemon news. We finally got all the info about Pokemon Sun and Moon that we could ever want. So first, here are the trailers.




As you can see, the new region is in fact based on Hawaii and is called the Alola region:


This region, being based on Hawaii and all, is probably going to be a set of islands connected through ferries.

Next, onto the starter Pokemon.

First we have Rowlet, a Grass Flying Owl Pokemon. Here's a brief bio for you:




Name: Rowlet
Category: Grass Quill Pok?mon
Height: 1 '00 "
Weight: 3.3 lbs.
Type: Grass/Flying
Starting Move: Leafage

The first of the potential partners is the highly adaptable Grass Quill Pok?mon, Rowlet. This Pok?mon can fly silently through the skies, sneaking up on its opponent without being noticed. It can attack its opponents using powerful kicks, and it can also attack from a distance using the razor-sharp leaves that form part of its feathers. Rowlet can survey its environment and turn its neck nearly 180 degrees from front to back, so it can see directly behind itself. When in battle, Rowlet turns its head to face its Trainer when waiting for instructions.

Then Litten, a Fire type cat.




Name: Litten
Category: Fire Cat Pok?mon
Height: 1 '04 "
Weight: 9.5 lbs.
Type: Fire
Starting Move: Ember

The cool-headed Fire Cat Pok?mon, Litten, is the next choice for a first-partner Pok?mon. Litten?s fur is rich in oils and is immensely flammable. It constantly grooms itself by licking its coat, collecting loose fur into balls. It then ignites these hairballs to create fireball attacks. When the time comes for Litten to molt, it burns off all of its fur in one glorious blaze.

And finally we have Popplio, a Water type Sea Lion.





Name: Popplio
Category: Sea Lion Pok?mon
Height: 1 '04 "
Weight: 16.5 lbs.
Type: Water
Starting Move: Water Gun

The third possibility is the acrobatic Sea Lion Pok?mon, Popplio. Popplio can create balloons made of water from its nose and utilize them to create a variety of different strategies and attacks in battle. This Pok?mon is better at moving in the water than on land, and can swim at speeds over 25 mph. On land, it uses the elasticity of the balloons it creates to perform jumps and acrobatic stunts.

Then we have the new Legendary Pokemon seen here through the box art. Thanks to trademarks made by Pokemon Japan, we also have their names. The Sun Legendary is a lion called Solgaleo.


The Moon Legendary is a bat called Lunaala.


And finally, we have confirmation that character customization is back to some extent.


Pokemon Sun and Moon will release on November 18th in Japan, North America, Australia and New Zealand. Sorry Europeans, you guys get it on the 23rd. So, are you excited for the new games? Which Legendary are you getting? What about starter? As for me, I'm going with Sun since lions are my favorite animal and probably gonna get Litten as my starter.

**** Popplio

I wanted Moon before but I'm not sure what to think about the legendary design, can't really tell what they were going for. Solgaleo looks awesome though.

Also gen 7 confirmed.

Don't count Popplio out until we know what the final evolution is.

Rowlet will probably be my starter either way tho...

I thought for sure you'd go with Poppin' Fresh, Kinvy. Pinnipeds are your jam.

I don't have one definitive favorite like I did for Froakie, but Rowlet is the one I like the most so far and is the cutest. Litten is really cool too, but not sure about popplio. He's cute but really goofy looking too. I probably need to see the evolutions to know for sure. Lunaala is definitely the cooler legendary and now I want moon for sure.

Popplio for mii <3 The fire cat tries too hard to be popular and the owl is otherwise cool but will probably suck competitively.

I'm really curious to see what Popplio turns into given we already had a sea lion Water-type starter.

I think the starters all look even sillier than last gen. But like how Chespin turned into a boss, I think the stupid looking sea lion could end up looking cool. Hopefully not another walrein.

I love the legendary lion. I want it, but I'm all for Moon tho. Not the biggest fan of the moon legendary. The region looks amazing. I love tropical areas. Glad customization is back and that the 'grown' look is standard now. Gonna pick the cat because I love cats and it's the less dumb looking of the bunch. That might change if i see the final evos tho.

Hoping either there are 4 big islands in this region like Hawaii, or that the island they showed was it, but we get to travel to a past region like Hoenn or Kalos again and get 8 badges.

Evil Tiki Team? Evil Totem poles?

Popplio is starting to grow on me for some reason. Even though it's goofy looking, it is cute and plus I like it having the underdog factor like froakie did.

These are easily the best starters since generation 4. I like all three of them.
The mascot legendaries are embarrassing though.

Really? I think they are okay, especially lunaala. It has a really unique design and they both look very mystic. I actually like both of these better than yveltal.

Normally I go for the grass starters and Rowlet is pretty cool, but I'm probably going to pick Litten. Hopefully I can get Rowlet later.

Edit: Also depends what their final forms will look like. Aesthetics**

I saw a fan-art that showed the 3 starters final evos will resemble circus acts. Cant find the picture but I thought it was a cool idea. The owl is a tightrope walker, the cat is the tiger that jumps through rings, and the sea lion balances a ball on his nose. Just thought that was a cool idea.

Interesting idea.

But it's hard to tell from the first evolution.

I never would have guessed that Froakie would become a ninja.
