The Pokemon Company today released a trailer for Pokemon Sun and Moon that reveals the final evolution forms of the game’s starter Pokemon.
As you’ll see in the video, Rowlet’s final form is Decidueye, while Litten morphs into Incineroar; lastly, Popplio becomes Primarina. Watch the video to see the creatures in action, while you can see official descriptions for the final forms at the bottom of this post.
The video also spotlights the three Alola guardian deity Pokemon, including Tapu Lele, Tapu Bulu, and Tapu Fini. They share a common Z-Move that unleashes a giant “Guardian of Alola” being that crushes foes with ease. It deals damage equal to 75 percent of the target’s remaining HP.
Other new Pokemon like the psychic-type Cosmog and the dark-type Alolan version of Persia are also on display the in the video.
In other news about Pokemon Sun and Moon, Nintendo announced that the game’s free demo reached 3.5 million downloads in just a week. That’s the fastest start ever for a 3DS demo.
Pokemon Sun and Moon launch for the 3DS on November 18. The developers recently told GameSpot that they are still considering connecting the game in some way to Pokemon Go.
- “The Arrow Quill Pokemon Decidueye is the fully evolved form of the Grass- and Flying-type first-partner Pokemon Rowlet. Decidueye attacks with astonishing speed, plucking arrow quills from its wings to send them hurtling towards its target with precise aim. This Pokemon is able to move about whilst completely masking its presence from others. Decidueye is the only Pokemon that can learn the move Spirit Shackle. This new Ghost-type move hits an opponent and makes it unable to leave the battle–it can’t flee or switch out.”
- The Heel Pokemon Incineroar is the fully evolved form of the Fire-type first-partner Pokemon Litten. As Incineroar’s fighting spirit increases, the flames it produces within its body burst from its navel and waistline. These flames resemble a championship belt, which it uses to unleash its moves. Incineroar is the only Pokemon able to learn the move Darkest Lariat. This new Dark-type physical attack allows Incineroar to deal damage to an enemy whilst ignoring the effects of any stat changes on that enemy.”
- “The Soloist Pokemon Primarina is the fully evolved form of the Water-type first-partner Pokemon Popplio. As Primarina dances, it releases balloons of water and controls their movement using the sound waves from its voice. Primarina uses some of these balloons to jump on and maneuver in battle whilst others explode when touched, which can trigger chained explosions. Primarina is the only Pokemon that can learn Sparkling Aria, a new Water-type special move which heals the burns of any target it strikes.”
