Ah, what a grand day, indeed. We present, Solgaleo and Lunala, the two newest legendaries in the Pokémon universe. Solgaleo (as seen on left in picture above) will star in Pokémon Sun, and Lunala (right) in Pokémon Moon. Both look like they could deal out a massive whooping on lil Popplio. Here's the new trailer which features the legendaries, as well as new gameplay footage, and a look at the new Pokédex:
In Sun and Moon all players will get a Pokédex inhabited by the ghost-like Pokémon Rotom, who can possess/inhabit objects and machinery.
“It does much more than record Pokémon info—it sparkles with its own personality. The Rotom Pokédex shows your current location and your next destination, and it also gives you advice on where to go next, based on the conversations you have with others! It’s likely to be of great help to you in many parts of your adventure.”
Lastly, here's a detailed look at Aloha: the Hawaii-inspired region of Sun and Moon:
What do you guys think? The gym leaders were revealed yesterday at San Diego Comic-Con, when hundreds of players also gathered with high hopes that a legendary might be unleashed...no such luck, unfortunately. Some other details covered:
There are easter eggs that nobody's discovered yet
They’re planning ways to customize Pokestops
Pokemon Centers are coming
There will be more functionality added to gyms, though the specifics aren’t clear
Niantic says the game is at about 10% of what they want it to be
They’re still discussing breeding, but nothing concrete in the works yet
The legendary birds are tied to teams in some way, as the original designs implied
Don't even know where to start with the latest trailer for Pokémon Sun and Moon! So many exciting things happening all at once. Snorlax finally wakes the heck up to unleash the ultimate z-move...'pulverizing pancake' (just wait till you see it in the video), and Raichu's straight up surfing the waves.
