With everyone absolutely consumed by Pokémon Go at the moment, let’s step away for a second to check out the latest in the long-running series of handheld games.
A Japanese trailer for Pokémon Sun and Moon, entitled “Every Day Is An Adventure” was released recently, showcasing more details about the upcoming games to audiences.
Off the back of Nintendo’s E3 Treehouse event, more footage of the four-way battles was shown, as well as the starters and several of the Pokémon from the new Alola region set to be explored. The video showcased the game’s updated graphics from previous versions, as well as what looked to be an improved version of Pokémon-Amie, first introduced with X and Y versions.
Two features that had been hinted but unnanounced also appeared in the trailer – the first being the ability to ride on more Pokémon than before in-game, and a ‘Burst’ mode that seems to link Trainer and Pokémon for a stronger attack. Of course more details will come to hand in the coming months as news is slowly released in the lead-up to the November launch.
Pokémon Sun and Moon are set for release on November 18, 2016.
