There are only three months left before the release of Pokémon Sun and Moon, and as we’re getting closer and closer to our adventure in Alola, more details are revealed as to what we should expect from the tropical region.
Last night, Pokémon released a new trailer revealing four new Pokémon, and prior to that, they also released another video featuring one Pokémon which was first shown at the Nintendo Haus Party.
Here’s the first video:
Here’s the most recent video:
The Pokémon who got his solo trailer debut is Tortunator, the Blast Turtle Pokémon. It is a Fire/Dragon-type who lives on volcanoes with a shell that has a layer of explosive materials. Tortunator has a special move that can only be learned by its species called Shell Trap. The move is a trap that is set at the beginning of a turn, and if hit by a physical attack during that turn, it triggers an explosion that will be greater than the damage inflicted from the opponent.
The first Pokémon revealed at the recent trailer was Crabrawler, a Fighting-type Pokémon. A Pokémon that hates to lose, and literally wants to be at a higher position than its fellow Crabrawlers, it sometimes clings on to tall people or the walls of buildings. Crabrawler has punches powerful enough to split tree trunks. Crabrawler’s pincers are also edibly delicious, once again proving the disturbing idea that Pokémon are food.
Sandygast and Palossand, which were first shown at a CoroCoro image leak, are Ghost/Ground-type Pokémon.
Sandygast is a possessed lump of sand that emerges when the grudges of Pokémon and other creatures soak into the sand. Grabbing a Sandygast’s shovel puts you under his control, and uses this power to manipulate mostly children into gathering sand to increase the size of its body.
Palossand, the evolved form of Sandygast, steals life force from small Pokémon by dragging them into its body. According to the Sun and Moon website, “its sandy vortex swallows them up in a heartbeat! Pokémon dragged into Palossand leave traces of their ill will behind. It’s thought that this negative energy may be the starting point of new Sandygast.”
Another Pokémon which we first saw at a CoroCoro image leak was Stufful, a Normal/Fighting-type Pokémon, and the pre-evolved form of Bewear. Stufful is a very popular Pokémon because of its cute appearance. Despite of this, it has great strength that can bring down even well-trained Pokémon.
Here’s a gallery of the new Pokémon revealed:
More information about the new Pokémon can be found on the Pokémon Sun and Moon website.
Pokémon Sun and Moon are the primary paired version of Generation VII of the Pokémon series which will be released on the Nintendo 3DS, November 18.
