The starters for the next generation of Pokemon games, Sun and Moon, were finally announced with a fantastic trailer showcasing the island paradise-like region where the game will take place. Not only that, the box art for the games and their respective legendary Pokemon have also been revealed and can be seen in the trailer as well. Check them out below!
Category: Grass Quill Pokémon
Height: 1 ’00 “
Weight: 3.3 lbs.
Starting Move: Leafage
Rowlet can attack without making a sound! It flies silently through the skies, drawing near to its opponent without being noticed, and then lashing out with powerful kicks. It can also attack from a distance using the razor-sharp leaves that form part of its feathers.
The first of the potential partners is the highly adaptable Grass Quill Pokémon, Rowlet. This Pokémon 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.
Category: Fire Cat Pokémon
Height: 1 ’04 “
Weight: 9.5 lbs.
Starting Move: Ember
Logical but also passionate, Litten always remains coolheaded and doesn’t show its emotions on the surface.
The cool-headed Fire Cat Pokémon, Litten, is the next choice for a first-partner Pokémon. 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.
Category: Sea Lion Pokémon
Height: 1 ’04 “
Weight: 16.5 lbs.
Starting Move: Water Gun
Popplio’s swimming speed is known to exceed 25 mph. It’s better at moving in the water than on land. Still, when it’s on land, it takes advantage of the elasticity of its balloons to perform acrobatic stunts and jumps.
The third possibility is the acrobatic Sea Lion Pokémon, 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 Pokémon 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.
Excited yet? I know I am! And with only six months to wait, Pokemon Sun and Moon will be here before we know it!
I’m grabbing Moon Version after seeing its legendary (I love all the bat Pokemon), but regarding the starters, it’s a toss up between Rowlet and Litten. I usually go for the water-starter but the sea lion/clown vibe just isn’t working for me. Which one are you choosing?
