A new 'Pokemon Sun and Moon' trailer has dropped today, as promised by the game's official Twitter account. The trailer showcases a lot of new information about the game, including the new region and its inhabitants, the QR Scanner, the Pokedex update, new Legendaries and more.
Pokemon's latest title takes us to tropical Alola region, where the trainer's adventure will take place. The Alola region is made up of four natural islands and one "artificial island", according to the official "Pokemon Sun and Moon" website. A lot of new, never before seen Pokemon can be seen on these islands.
As usual, players can choose between a boy or girl trainer in "Pokemon Sun and Moon." The avatars can also be customized to the player's liking, although in default template forms.
There are also a lot of interesting non-playable characters, or NPC's, that the hero or heroine will meet during his travels on Alola Region. For instance, Professor Kukui is Alola's resident Pokemon professor and he will be assisting the players during their Pokemon journey.
In additiona, Professor Kukui has a young assistant, named Lillie, who is working for him for personal reasons. The site mentioned that she will play a vital role in the game. Then there is the hero's best frienddHau, a big-hearted boy who has a soft spot for Pokemon and malasada. Both are said to be around the same age as the hero.
Nintendo also adds the QR Scanner function in Sun and Moon, allowing the players to see Pokemon information by scanning various QR codes, including Pokemon that they have not caught yet. This will enable players to register the scanned Pokemon into the Pokedex and find out where that particular Pokemon can be located. QR codes can also be shared with friends.
Meanwhile, the Pokedex that the players will be using in the game is not just an average Pokedex , thanks to new Pokemon Rotom, who has the ability to reside in electronic devices. The Rotom Pokedex, as it is now called, shows players their current location and offers advice on where to go next, making the Pokedex a much more helpful tool.
The trailer also revealed a sneak peek of the games Legendaries, Solgaleo and Lunala. "Pokemon Sun and Moon" will be available for release for the Nintendo 3DS in Japan and North America on November 18 and in Europe on November 23, Siliconera reports.
