Pokémon Sun and Moon: First Look

Pokémon Sun and Moon: First Look

Yesterday, the official trailer for Pokémon Sun and Moon was released, and the internet is all abuzz. We finally get a first glimpse at the new starter Pokémon, a Hawaiian inspired region, and new legendary Pokémon.

Let's take a look at the new starter Pokémon, Rowlet, Litten, and Popplio.

Category Grass Quill Pokémon
Height 1'00"
Weight 3.3 lbs.
Type Grass/Flying
Ability Overgrow

So far, Rowlet is my favorite of the three starters. I can't get over the little leaf bowtie, and starting out as Grass/Flying should make things interesting early on in the game.

Category Fire Cat Pokémon
Height 1'04"
Weight 9.5 lbs.
Type Fire
Ability Blaze

I love cats! However, I'm not a huge fan of the design/color scheme for Litten. The animation from the trailer makes this guy look pretty stinking cute though. Maybe he'll win me over.

Popplio

Category Sea Lion Pokémon
Height 1'04"
Weight 16.5 lbs.
Type Water
Ability Torrent

I want to love this adorable sea lion, but I just don't care for the clown theme. I'm very curious to see what the other two evolutions are for this one.

This new Pokémon game takes us to the new tropical Region of Alola. The quick glimpse of the world we see from the trailer has some gorgeous scenic views and neat Hawaiian touches everywhere.

One of my favorite features from Pokémon X and Y is back! The character customization is returning, and there's an addition skin tone option. It's getting pretty diverse, and I love it! I can't wait to see the different wardrobe options. I imagine there won't be as much style and fashion as the Kalos Region, but it'll still be fun to customize our character.

We finally get our first glimpse at the new Legendary Pokémon. Sun has a white lion, and Moon has a pretty awesome looking bat creature. With Alola being inspired by such a rich cultural place, I'm excited to see the back story and mythology that tie into these Legendary Pokémon.
