Pokemon Sun/Moon has been a major hit all the way around. But it also changed up the formula of the games in many ways. One of those big ways was with the Alola Forms. Which were classic Pokemon like Meowth, Vulpix, Sandshrew, and more, but with a new look based on the new climates in Alola. In an interview with Meristation, Junichi Masuda of Game Freak talked about where the ideas for the new Alola Forms came from. Mainly, it was a nod to the gamers who have been with the game since Gen I:
Though Legend of Zelda was the main focus of Nintendo’s Treehouse, Pokemon had a strong presence there as well. Not only was new Pokemon introduced, but a new battle was introduced as well.
Nintendo and the Pokemon Company have released a video that has shown off many new details about the upcoming Pokemon Sun and Moon games. First up, the games will release on November 18th of this year, so the wait will not have to be as long as many thought.
