The craze about Pokemon Go seems to have passed. However, other products from the famous series are still able to hold the players spellbound. Nintendo developers have an offer for all Pokemon lovers, and, although it is not new, it has appealing updates.What is it new about Pokemon Sun and Moon?
Pokemon Sun and Moon offer players a new perspective on the Pokemon’s world, as the games display regional variants of the beloved animated characters. Both games are set in the Alola region, and the Pokemon have special forms here.
Developers have recently revealed that two more Pokemon will have specific Alola forms, namely Rattata and Snorlax. Rattata is a purple, cute, yet aggressive rodent which we all know from the cartoons and previous games. In Pokemon Sun and Moon, Rattata becomes black and has a nocturnal lifestyle in order to keep safe from predators. Meowth also becomes dark in the new game, as an adaptation to the Alola region, according to previously released information.
If the case of Rattata was similar to that of other Pokemon in the game, thus easier to explain, things get a little more complicated with Snorlax. “Complicated” doesn’t necessarily mean it is a bad thing, on the contrary, it makes things more interesting.
The first step in getting your Pokemon Sun and Moon Snorlax is to get a Munchlax. Only early buyers can get the first stage of Snorlax. Munchlax evolves into Snorlax after some time, and then Snorlax can display its Z-move, which actually comes with its Munchlax version. Snorlax has to sleep for twenty years and only after can it unleash its Z-Moves, consisting of an iconic attack, called Pulverizing Pancake.
Raichu is also to be found in the colorful world of Pokemon Sun and Moon, and it also has its Z-Moves. For this Alola version of evolved Pikachu, the Z-move is called Stoked-Sparksurfer. The famous cartoon character is now a surfer and uses its tail as a surfboard.
Familiar Marowak also has an Alola form, as previous announcements have already informed the public. Nevertheless, there will be new characters too, such as Wishiwashi (a water Pokemon), Pyukumuku (a black and pink sea cucumber), Morelull (a plant-like Pokemon, resembling a mushroom).
The end of the autumn will also bring the release of Pokemon Sun and Moon. American and Japanese fans will be able to have their games starting November 18, while European fans will get them starting November 23.
