Data mining Pokemon Sun and Moon Demo Version

Here’s all of the data mining that’s been done so far in regards to the Pokemon Sun and Moon Demo Version, released today. If you are afraid of spoilers, don’t read this article, there is a lot of info ahead.

Update: several leakers reached out to us with a request to leak more data they’ve found. We’re considering. Stay tuned, we don’t want to risk the site for fake info, verifying as it comes in.

Update #2: new capture mechanic and Team Skull music visualised.

140+ new Pokemon?

Not yet confirmed, as serebii can’t leak confirmation due to fears of cease and desist from Game Freak, but several other leakers reported this.

Two more Alola forms – Dugtrio and Golem

Currently there is no Golem picture available, but Dugtrio is looking fabulous, sporting a long blonde haircut! Both forms seem to be unlocked through game events. Alolan forms are exclusively Gen I Pokemon.

New capture mechanic

You can now swap out your Pokemon if your party is full!
