Alolan Rattata and Unique Z-Moves

By Cat333Pokémon on September 1, 2016

In today's latest video update, which was included in today's Nintendo Direct, some new information was brought to light.

Rattata has a Dark/Normal Alola form.

Some Pokémon have a unique Z-Move. Alolan Raichu has Stoked Sparksurfer, and Snorlax has Pulverizing Pancake. These Z-Moves require unique Z Stones. Snorlax's Snorlium Z can only be obtained as a Munchlax pre-order bonus.

Alola Forms, Z Moves and a Few Other Things

By Dragonite on August 1, 2016

So we got a rather long Sun-Moon video today.

- A bunch of old Pokémon (namely Kanto Pokémon) get these new "Alola forms." I have mixed feelings about this. I'd rather Sandslash gets a legitimate new evolution than a special form only available in Alola. Like they did with Sinnoh.

- Alola Trials, one for each island. Finally, some serious sidequesting in Pokémon games. At least, I assume. We only got to see the bosses at the end today, though.

- A couple new Pokémon. Meh.

- Z Moves, which are basically the "attack" analogue of Mega Evolutions. You only get to use one a battle and they're supposedly ridiculously powerful, though I'm not sure what order of magnitude the base power's on. I don't like these. I didn't like Mega Evolutions 'cause power creep, and these look about the same. They look kind of cool, but I wouldn't be surprised if between these and the (undoubtedly more power creep-filled) Alola forms I never bother to get into Gen 7 competitive.

- Edit: oh yeah, you get to ride Pokémon too. This had better be what it looks like it is. *shakes fist in Nintendo's general direction*

New Pokémon and E3 Information for Sun/Moon

A variety of new bits of information have been revealed at this morning's E3 conference.

There are three new early-route Pokémon, including Pikipek (Normal/Flying bird with Keen Eye), Yungoos (Normal mongoose with Stakeout or Strong Jaw), and Grubbin (Bug beetle with Swarm). A variety of older Pokémon have been shown as available in-game.

A new battle mode, the Battle Royal, allows four players to fight concurrently. Each player sends out a single Pokémon, and the battle lasts until one player runs out of Pokémon.

The Pokédex and in-battle move selection have been improved to show move efficacies, stat changes' effects on moves, and evolution paths.
