New info for Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo have revealed powerful Z-attacks and brand new characters and Pokémon for the anticipated Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.


The Z-attacks is a new element that will be introduced in the Pokémon-battles. These Z-attacks are powerful attacks that can only be used once per fight. To use the Z-attacks, 2 items are required: a Z-ring and a Z-crystal. The Z-ring can be worn around the arm of the Trainer and the Z-crystals are put inside of the ring.

The trailer, which can be seen below, also showed off six new Pokemon that will be appearing in the game.


Oricoro is a bird Pokemon that has a different type on each Alola region Island. The Oricoros all have different dancing styles and can also copy any dance-type moves that their opponents use.


Minior is a Rock/Flying type that resembles a meteor. Minior’s “Shields Down” ability gives it an excellent defense stat until its HP drops below half. When Minior’s health is low, its outer shell breaks to reveal its shiny core.


Gumshoos is Yungoos’s evolved form and looks to be a bipedal, older version of the ferret Pokemon.


Fomantis is a nocturnal Grass type Pokemon. Its evolved form, Lurantis, has a new move called Solar Blade that appears to be a physical version of the Solar Beam attack.


Mudbray is Mudsdale’s pre-evolved form. The Pokemon website states that Mudbray was once common around the world, but that the Pokemon was hunted to near extinction.

Pokemon Sun and Moon will also be introducing “Island Trials” as either a compliment or replacement for gym battles. Players will need to clear each Island Trial before moving onto the next island. The Trials have several different parts, not all of which involve battling. A player will first need to clear a challenge by a Trial Leader, which at least sometimes involves finding items or using your observational abilities to clear. After clearing the first part of the challenge, players will then enter into an SOS battle with a powerful Totem Pokemon that is much larger than a normal Pokemon. SOS Battles are 2 on 1 handicap battles, so trainers will be an extra disadvantage.  The trainer’s final test will be to battle the Island Kahuna in a grand trial.
