The newest trailer for Pokémon Sun and Moon not only details the legendary Pokémon headed to the two games, but also gives fans a large dose of gameplay and feature reveals.
Pictured on the cover of Sun, the first legendary is Solgaleo. A psychic- and steel-type, it possess the new Ability, Full Metal Body, making it so a Pokémon’s stats can’t be lowered. Its signature move is Sunsteel Strike, an attack that ignores an opponent’s Ability.
Meanwhile, pictured on the box of Moon, the other legendary is Lunala, a Psychic- and Ghost-type. It has the Ability Shadow Shield, making it receive less damage from opponents with full health. And its signature move is Moongeist Beam, an attack that also ignores an enemy’s Ability.
The trailer gives fans plenty else to get excited about though. It showcases everything from the character selection to a drawn back look at the Alola Region. The region appears to be made up of four large islands, with smaller islands between them.
We even get a closer look at Professor Kukai, and our first glimpses of his “mysterious assistant,” Lillie, and “your new friend in Alola,” Hau.
“When you move to the Alola region, [Hau] makes friends with you right away,” a post on the games’ website explains. Meanwhile, Lillie is “Professor Kukui’s assistant for personal reasons. She’s not fond of making Pokémon fight in battles, but she loves reading and has devoured many books. Lillie will play an important role in the story of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.”
And if all that wasn’t enough, the trailer also reveales that there will be a Rotom, a Pokémon that can possess electronic devices, in your Pokédex.
Posting on the website, the developer detailed one more feature as well: Sun and Moon will include a QR code scanner. When you scan a QR code, it will register unseen Pokémon and give you a location marker for where they can be caught. Players will even be able to share different QR codes with others.
