Pokemon Sun and Moon Trailer Introduces the Evolved Forms of the Starter Pokemon


The evolved forms of Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon‘s starter Pokemon were revealed in a trailer today.

We got our first look at the starter Pokemon for upcoming Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon – Rowlet, Litten, and Popplio – in May, when the release date of November 18 (in the US) was announced. In a new trailer posted today, we got our first look at the evolved forms of these Pokemon. More details, from the accompanying press release, can be found below.

Type: Grass-Flying
The Blade Quill Pokemon Dartrix evolves from Rowlet. Dartrix attacks by throwing its knife-edged feathers, and it possesses extremely sharp senses. This Pokemon can detect opponents behind it and can throw feathers to strike them without even seeing them. This Pokemon cares a great deal about its appearance, grooming its feathers in every spare moment it has.

Type: Fire
The Fire Cat Pokemon Torracat evolves from Litten. This Pokemon produces flames for its attacks from a bell-like sac attached at the base of its throat. Torracat has a great love for battle and will attack relentlessly. Its mane can sense what is going on around it, even in the dark, and is able to detect the presence of hidden enemies.

Type: Water
The Pop Star Pokemon Brionne evolves from Popplio. Brionne can dance in perfect time with others and is always cheery and positive. A very hard worker, Brionne learns dances by imitating other members of its colony and can sometimes even learn dances from humans. As this Pokemon dances, it creates balloons and slaps them into its target, making them explode and deal damage to its opponents.

Also announced was a “Special Demo Version” of the games, which will be available to download from the Nintendo eShop and the official Nintendo website on October 18. This also grants access to Pokemon Ash-Greninja, which will be transferable from the Demo Version to the full version when the game launches.
