Pokemon Sun And Moon is just a few days away from launch and Game Freak has been revealing new details about the game. This time The Pokemon Company and Nintendo has revealed new details about the game like new Pokemon and how Z-Moves work.
Nintendo has revealed two more Pokemon that will be featured in the upcoming Pokemon Sun And Moon. These new Pokemon are Alolan Diglett and Alolan Dugtrio.
Alolan Diglett is a Ground-Steel type Pokemon. It is a Mole Pokemon that lives near volcanic areas so they have “few places to hide away”. This Pokemon has hair like metallic whiskers on their head which acts as a survival mechanism for the hostile volcanic environment.
Alolan Diglett can have the Tangling Hair Ability, which is a new Ability that no other Pokémon has previously had. With the Tangling Hair Ability, opponents that hit this Pokémon with a move that makes direct contact will have their speed lowered by 1.
Alolan Dugtrio is also a Ground-Steel type Pokemon and is an evolved form of Alolan Diglett. In Alola this Pokemon “is revered as an incarnation of the god of the land”. The people of Alola believe that when a Volcano is about to erupt many Alolan Dugtrio would come out of their burrow.
Nintendo also revealed two more Ultra Beasts that will be featured in Pokemon Sun And Moon, UB-05 Glutton and UB-03 Lighting.
UB-05 Glutton has an incredible appetite and can devour anything that is in front of it. This Ultra Beast not only devours objects but also rivers, ground, and even the seas. It is believed that whatever this Beast eats it converts into energy to sustain itself and leaves no waste behind.
Nothing but the name of UB-03 Lighting was revealed. More detail about this Ultra Beast will be revealed when players get to play Pokemon Sun And Moon.
As we already know that there will be 3 starter Pokemon for players to choose from, and each of them has an exclusive Z-Move that can only be used once they are fully evolved.
Z-Move: Sinister Arrow Raid
Decidueye slices through the air together with a hail of arrow quills, crashing into the target before dealing the final blow with its arrows.
Z-Move: Malicious Moonsault
With flames spouting from its flame belt, Incineroar leaps high into the sky and dives straight down onto its target.
Z-Move: Oceanic Operetta
Primarina manipulates a huge balloon using its voice, then causes it to explode over its target’s head, dealing a lot of damage.
Z-Moves are special moves for Pokemon that can be used by holding a Z-crystal that corresponds with move type. The effects of Z-Moves vary depending on whether they are used on attack moves or status moves. Z-moves based on attack moves have a greater effect than standard moves.
Pokemon Sun And Moon is scheduled to arrive on November 18, 2016 for Nintendo 3DS.
