So the other day we got a brand new trailer for Pokemon Sun and Moon, and it looks legitimately awesome, if you haven't seen it, check it out below:
Now everything in it is amazing, the region, the legendaries, and especially the starters. So let's look into this trailer in full depth!
Now the game will be released on November 18, 2016 as you can see, and the legendaries look sick. Now from the box art, we obviously see that the Sun legendary is based off a lion and the Moon legendary is based off a bat, now in the middle of the words Sun and Moon, you can see a beam of light gleaming. What it means, I don't know.
From what we can see here, this place is obviously going to be called the Alola region, which is a play on the word "Aloha", which is "Hello" in Hawaiian. Also, this is either a big family reunion, or this is the place you live, which is also where your cousin lives, Kukui, now I just looked it up and apparently it's a type of nut? Probably symbolizing that he's clumsy and doesn't look at the consequences of his actions.
Now this is the professor, as he is seen offering you any one of the starters in the trailer. Now if you've payed close attention to the recent games, you know that he will be name out of a tree. Examples: Professor Oak, Elm, Birch, Rowan, Juniper, and Sycamore, so, what will this guy's name be, well I found something about Hawaiian trees, maybe he'll be named after one. Here's the link.
So this is the legendary for Sun, obviously. Now he looks awesome as I said before, he's got the lion look and everything, but I don't know if he's based off of Hawaiian folklore or not. We'll just have too see.
So this is the legendary for Moon, inspired by a bat, but that's good, the more creative Pokemon get, the more games we buy, and the more games we buy, the more Nintendo and Pokemon know that we want to see more creative stuff. So it's good that we get to see this stuff.
That's it, what do you guys think? Let me know in the comments section down below. Are you guys excited or what?
Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon will be released for the 3DS on November 18, 2016.
