Pokemon Sun and Moon Battles Have Spectators in the Backgrounds

Pokemon Sun and Moon battles are going to be more enjoyable than ever before. A new design change adds spectators in the background, watching the action go down between fierce Pokemon.

It would be a very neat feature if other players are somehow able to spectate matches, isn’t it? There is also a new HP bar that adds a little more spark to the overlay.

Previously, the Cororo trailer for Pokemon Sun and Moon revealed a Pokemon that hasn’t been announced yet. It looks like an Eevee evolution but its ears are less pointy, it could very well be a new Pokemon that we will get to see in the coming weeks.

For now, we only know about two sun and moon themed Pokemon that are on the cover of Pokemon Sun and Moon. We also have three starter Pokemon – Grass- and Flying-type Pokémon Rowlet, Fire-type Litten, and Water-type Popplio.

Nintendo America recently held a poll on Twitter to determine the popularity of each of these Pokemon. Fans voted and the results came out in favor of Grass and Flying based Pokemon Rowlet. Litten was at second place while Water-Type Popplio is the least liked Starter Pokemon from Pokemon Sun and Moon.

However, we do have a few words in defense of Pokemon Popplio .

Pokemon Sun and Moon will release for 3DS and for the first time in franchise history features proper black trainers. Nintendo making this move could also be due to a recent scandal involving a certain Pokemon that many considered to be racist.

More details on Pokemon Sun and Moon will be shared in the coming weeks so stay-tuned!
