Pokémon Sun and Moon Starters

In the beginning of 2016 Nintendo announced their plans to release a new Pokémon game under the name Sun and Moon. In the first video they released they showed some teaser locations but nothing concrete.

The second video was released on 10th of May and showed the starter Pokémons. The owl Rowlet, The cat Litten and the sea lion Popplio. For more detailed information about the Starters read below! Other things that were shown in the video are the new ‘size’ of the trainers – though the player’s character seems a lot taller, it appears the player is stil a ten year old, which makes the character look a bit strange. It also seems the trainer modification from X/Y is still possible, however, so that’s a lot of fun. The region seems to have a tropical style, and is based off of Hawaii. The legendary of Sun is a Lion and the Moon Legendary seems to be some kind of Butterfly. They didn’t revealed any names yet for the legendaries! The new region is called Alola Region and the person that will give you, your starter is named Hala. The game will be released in Europe on 23rd of November.

After seeing the video, what do you think of the starters and which one is you favorite? Let us know in the comments and why!

Category: Grass Quill Pokémon
Height: 1’00”
Weight: 3.3lbs.
Type: Grass/Flying
Ability: Overgrow

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.

Its visual abilities are impressive. The darkness of night is no obstacle to Rowlet! It can twist its neck nearly 180° from front to back so it can see directly behind itself. It has a habit of turning its head in battle to face its Trainer and receive instructions.

The move Leafage attacks an opponent by striking it with leaves. Rowlet knows this move from the moment it becomes your partner!”

Category: Fire cat Pokémon
Height: 1’04”
Weight: 9.5lbs.
Type: Fire
Ability:  Blaze

“Logical but also passionate, Litten always remains coolheaded and doesn’t show its emotions on the surface.

Litten can attack with flaming hairballs! Its fur is rich in oils and immensely flammable. Litten grooms itself by licking its fur, and then uses the collected fur as fuel for fireball attacks!

When the time comes for Litten to shed its old fur, it all burns up in a glorious blaze. The move Ember attacks an opponent by firing a small flame at it. Litten knows this move from the moment it becomes your partner!”

Category: Sea Lion Pokémon
Height: 1’04”
Weight: 16.5lbs.
Type: Water
Ability: Torrent

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.

Popplio can snort out balloons made of water! Watch it spin water balloons into a playful battle strategy!

Both frivolous and hard-working, Popplio can easily get carried away—unleashing enough power in battle to make quite a spectacle! But Popplio’s determined spirit means it can usually be found practicing hard on its balloon skills.

The Water Gun move attacks an opponent by firing a jet of water. Popplio knows this move from the moment it becomes your partner!”
