The recent trailer for Pokémon, which was released last Monday, confirmed a leak from a Chinese source that contained the images of the supposed evolutions of the Alola starters Rowlett, Litten, and Popplio.
If you look closely at the leaked image, you’ll see that the girl next to the supposed Litten evolution bears a resemblance to Mallow, one of the four trial captains of Alola whom were revealed in the trailer last Monday.
These leaks have been circulating on the Internet long before the trailer was released, so it’s safe to assume that these leaks are accurate. According to Pokejungle, the Chinese source gained credibility after its prediction of a Poison/Fire-type Pokémon was fulfilled with the reveal of Salandit.
In the leak, it’s also mentioned that there will be no traditional Gyms and no Pokémon League in Alola, and the reveal of the Trial Leaders and Kahunas seemed to have confirmed this leak. Additionally, the information from the leak states that the goal in the game is to create a Pokémon League, and once this is achieved, an Elite 4 will appear which are the leaders of each island.
The other information posted in Pokejungle following the initial leak are as follows:
- The diamond stones will be collectible throughout the region and act similarly to Mega Stones but not exactly.
- New Pokémon based on a dolphin, sea cucumber, snowman, mushroom and a rugby monkey are there.
- Rockruff’s evolution is a Werewolf.
- Mashadow, another copyrighted Pokémon name, has a very unique type combo.
After the release of the trailer, Pokejungle released more information about what we might see in the gameplay for Pokémon Sun and Moon:
- The anime’s Ash-Greninja will appear in the game.
- Alolan Rattata & Raticate are Dark-type.
- Alolan Butterfree is Bug/Psychic.

- The previous versions of Pokémon which have taken on new forms will only be accessible by bringing in from older games.
- Furfrou gets new styles.
- New cat Pokémon varies in type and appearance based on breeding.
- There is a new snowman Pokémon line with two stages and it is Ice/Ghost.
- Not to get hopes up, but there may be two final evolutions for each starter.
Pokémon Sun and Moon are the primary paired version of Generation VII of Pokémon which will be released on the Nintendo 3DS, November 18.
