These ultra beasts are looking awfully familiar...

Also, the plot for the anime for S&M has been released, and... its actually different then what the usual shtick is! This one involves Ash going to school, and trying to graduate, which seems like a nice deviation from the usual plot.

Hm... I'm kind of confused as to why rugarugan is a single pokémon with such dramatically different forms and apparently different movesets. Why aren't they just a proper split evolution? Alternatively, considering it's clearly meant to be a werewolf/loup garou, why not keep it as forms of a single pokémon but make the forms interchangeable instead of permanent? Midday form during the day, midnight form during, y'know, the night? They look okay, they're probably fun enough to use and all, but this decision is baffling to me.

Not suuuper pumped about Rockruff's evolutions myself, but they're not bad. Just... anime wolves.
Same. Rockruff's one of my favorites out of the new 'mons, so it's disappointing the evos are so uninspired. And like Kratos said, why are they different forms instead of an actual split evolution? (Similar to that one fish that doesn't evolve, it just changes form after a certain level? Wat?) What did I say about sticking more forms all over everything, Game Freak. >:|

Oh look more info!

The gist: We've got 2 new monkey 'mons (One Fighting, one Normal/Psychic) that are version exclusives, Rockruffs evos are also version exclusives apparently, clothing change and Pokemon Amie (excuse me, Pokemon Refresh) are back, and Pikachu and Eevee have new exclusive Z-Moves! EDIT: This wasn't mentioned in the trailer, but it was announced recently, so I'll include it anyway: Pokemon Bank will be Sun/Moon compatible by January 2017.

The monkeys look pretty interesting, since they look like fierce wild monkeys rather than cute monkeys like Aipom and the Pansage/Pansears/Panpour trio. Also, Eevees new Z-Move is really OP! (For those who don't know, it raises all of Eevees stats by TWO STAGES)

You can go hatless! Everything I ever dreamed of from pokémon avatar customization.

I'm super excited for the SuMo customization because it gives the male PCs actual options, unlike XY, which had four different shirt models in four different colors each.

Refresh looks even more like Nintendogs (not that that's a bad thing). Really pumped to properly groom everything.

Speaking of grooming, what kind of side games would you guys like to see in these games?

Yes, high school drama. Jokes aside, this looks interesting! Ash would actually go through learning experiences instead of just randomly bumbling along regions.

Yeah the customization options look A+ and it looks like there'll be a short enough hair option for girls as well! I won't have to play as a dude just to get shorter hair :D
And good riddance, hats! Even though I wear a hat irl I don't want to be forced to wear one in-game. Plus, being able to dye your clothing is just Really Good and I wasn't expecting it. Thanks Gamefreak!


Lycanroc's Midnight form is kinda growing on me after seeing it in action, because it looks so lively (and slightly deranged). That cry is pretty cute as well. Still might not be enough for me to stick it in my team, but at least the 3D model redeems it a bit in my eyes :P

Starter evolutions have been revealed! Also, your PC pokemon can hang around on islands and do stuff like gather evolution stones, plus a demo version (with Ash-Greninja) will be released on the 18th! Megas are (unsurprisingly) returning, though no new ones have been shown at this time. :O :O


Rowlet's fab snob evolution is great *u* Litten's evo looks cool as well but if it doesn't get a split evolution I'm going with Popplio because dang it just gets more adorable. :3

Oh man, tons of stuff I like in this update. Really interested in what the online mission stuff is going to be about, sounds like it could be pretty cool. VR trainers, and getting to play with VR trainer teams, is also nice, although it could mean even more of a flood of same-y stuff if everyone's just grabbing some championship team to use. Dat Worlds 2017 format, tho--Alola 'dex only and no megas. Assuming the Alola 'dex isn't hideously unbalanced, that could be a lot of fun!

tbh what I'm most excited about is the announcement of the demo, for personal reasons--if it gets reverse-engineered, I might be able to get the summary sprites to use for my NaNo word counters this November, which would be super cool.

4 more 'mons have been unveiled!

First off, we've got Alolan Grimer! It's Poison/Dark type, and it has a "beard", and buck teeth!

The other three haven't been confirmed as of yet due to lack of images, but we've reportedly also got Shiruvadi, Type:Null's evolution, which has an "Ability AR system", which changes its type if it holds its personal item. And we've got Jarango, Jangmo-o's evolution, and Jararanga, the Fighting/Dragon final stage of Jangmo-o.

The images showing the evolutions (both Type:Null's and Jangmo-o's) have surfaced! A Dragon/Fighting mon that's also a cool scale armor knight dragon? Hell yes. I'm glad it keeps its unique colour scheme! *u*

And the news keeps coming

Alolan Grimer and the new evos in Corocoro were officially announced! Silvally is Type:Null's evolutions English name, and is pretty much the poor man's Arceus, and Jangmo-o's evolutions English names are Hakamo-o for the middle evo and the final stage is Kommo-o. And more evos! Bounsweet evolves twice, first into Steenee, then Tsareena, Cutiefly now evolves into Ribombee, and we have Alolan Muk! (It looks fab). And finally, there are 2 new type specializing trainers: a Rock type one and a Normal type one. Anyway, that's all.

Tech-savvy people have been very busy datamining the demo, and have already found sprites for most of the pokemon and Ultra Beasts (apparently some 'mons are still missing but don't quote me on that), including shiny sprites. Obviously very spoilery, so if you don't want to see unreleased pokemon, don't look! Here's the video with the regular 'mons and here's one with the shinies. :O :O

Wimpod just got a spot in my in-game team, that's for sure. Plus I see a ton of shiny breeding in my future :D

Alolan dugtrio is definitely a gift to all humanity. I think I definitely want one on my team, especially given that there's such a tiny number of actual new pokémon... haha... haaaa...
