With all the negative news in Pokemon GO recently, we decided to take a look at Pokemon Sun and Moon, an upcoming game in the core game series.
If you’re not aware, 2016 is the 20th anniversary of the Pokemon franchise and Sun and Moon are launching as the seventh installment to the main series game.
Pokemon Sun and Moon are launching on November 18th 2016, and boy they’re looking awesome!
Please, give us Alola forms in Pokemon GO!
Alola forms are a new Pokemon form that is unique to certain species found in the islands of the Alola region. Some Pokémon species have uniquely adapted to the microclimates of the Alola region, becoming what is known as a regional variant of their species.
A regional variant? Specie adaptation? GIVE US THAT IN POKEMON GO!
Just take a second and appreciate all of the new “alola forms” for old Pokemon like Raichu, Vulpix, Sandshrew and Exeggutor:
They are plainly beautiful and honestly, we see no reason why some of this could not come to Pokemon GO also. Want shiny Pokemon in Pokemon GO? Why not alola forms!
Speculation and wishful thinking aside, Sun and Moon are shaping up really well on the gameplay front also:
- Z-Moves are a new type of move in which the Trainer and Pokémon’s wishes combine to release their full power. Z-Moves are moves of great power, but can only be used once per battle.
- Battle Royal
- The Battle Royal is a new battle format where four players enter into a free-for-all battle, with any player able to attack (or aid) another. The battle ends when all of one player’s Pokémon faint, with the winner being the player who has the highest combined number of knockouts and number of remaining Pokémon.
- Poké Pelago
- Poké Pelago is a new feature that allows Pokémon that are stored in a PC Box to explore a variety of isles, play on athletic equipment, and enjoy other fun activities. The various islands allow the player’s Pokémon to gather items, discover wild Pokémon, and even raise Pokémon levels and stats.
