We might have seen an Alolan Pikachu years ago.



We might get one that looks somewhat like this, but with more changes.

Japanese trailer shows a regular Pikachu evolving into an Alolan Raichu so current thought is that Pikachu, like Exeggcute and Cubone, does not have an Alolan form.

I love how Marowak is now officially a Ghost-type. Sorry, poor Cubone.

I noticed that too. LOL so cruel.

Oh, and Raichu will be the first Electric/Psychic type in the whole franchise. Very interesting.

A new Pokemon again, and it probably has the most hilariously awesome name of any Pokemon.

Anyway, I'm kind of glad this one is set with the Hawaii theme to be honest... just because I already like Hawaii so, uh, yeah, simple reasoning...

Newest trailer for the game reveals some more things they are doing differently this time. Aside from some really weird designs you wouldn't expect from Pokemon, it seems like they're removing the day/night cycle again to make the two versions take place at different times. Zygarde also has his own side-quest in here. Feels like there's going to be a lot to do this time.

Apparently they've also decided to respond to all the cries for a Pokemon Snap sequel by putting a picture-taking minigame in.

Actually, the Japanese trailer shows a day/night cycle. Dunno why the US version didn't, and it also makes me confused about what they mean in regards to Sun and Moon taking place at different times:

From what I can gather, Moon's day/night cycle is switched around so that during the daytime, the game will take place at night?

ah, that's actually pretty cool. You can get the game that fits your schedule. My cousin works super late night shifts so I might tell him to get Moon.

I thought the sand castle Pokemon was stupid as fuck until I read the description for it.

"Sandygast emerges when the grudges of fallen Pokemon soak into the sand after battle, and its tunnel-like mouth can suck the vitality from people and Pokemon."

And the evolved form.

"Palossand disguises itself as a sandcastle, with its shovel on top serving, it is believed, as a radar to search out prey. Unsuspecting small Pokemon are dragged into Palossandís body through its sandy vortex so it can steal their life force."

I guess the starter evos seem to imply the earlier leaks were legit, if there were still any doubt.

More notably, there will be a demo in about 2 weeks! Looking forward to that.

Additional notes, you get a Greninja that can form change to Ash-Greninja for completing the demo, and we will probably know the size of the new generation the moment the hackers get the demo for datamining purposes.
