In addition, Ash will use the new Z-Moves in battle, just as players use them in the upcoming game. In the trailer, Ash can be seen wearing a Z-Ring and doing the dance with Pikachu to perform a Z-Move.
According reports, Z-Moves are a new technique in the “Pokémon” games. Each Pokémon will be able to hold a Z-Stone to upgrade one of their moves. So far, there are only two types of Z-Move confirmed – the type-specific Z-Stone that allows Pokémon to perform an upgraded attack of the same type and a species-specific Z-Stone, just like the special Munchlax that allows an evolution, Snorlax, to learn a devastating new attack.
As reported, “Pokémon Sun and Moon” will also get a game and manga version. The said manga version will be titled “Pokémon Horizon” and will be part of the October issue of Shogakukan’s Coro Coro Comics.
“Pokémon Sun and Moon” anime series is set to air in November on TV Tokyo and its affiliated stations in Japan.
