We’ve known about the new starter creatures in the upcoming Pokémon sequels, but now we know what the next step will be in their evolutions.
The owl-like Grass/Flying type Owlet will turn into Datrix, which is described as being a somewhat vain Pokémon that attacks with “knife-edged feathers.”
Litten, the fiery cat starter, evolves into Torracat. The bell like object on its neck, which looks more like a collar, is actually a sack that contains the fire the aggressive creature uses to attack.
Finally, there is Brionne, an advanced form of the water-type Popplio. Brionne carries on the circus-seal like look and behavior of Popplio.
These new creatures weren’t the only new announcements today, however. The series’ PC Box system for storing Pokémon is getting an overhaul in Sun and Moon with Poké Pelagos. While in your boxes, your creatures will be able to visit Isles where they can gather items and even trade while not in active use. The more Pokémon you store, the more Isles you gain access too.
The new games are also introducing the Festival Plaza, a new social space players can access together either locally or online. While in the Festival Plaza, players can earn Festival Coins through interacting with one another that can be used for buying items and expanding the Plaza. Players can also battle together, take on missions set up by fellow players, and train their Pokémon.
The final piece of big news is that a demo will be released for the games on October 18. Aside from giving gamers a taste of what Sun and Moon will have to offer, the demo will also introduce to a special Greninja based on the Greninja trained by Ash in the Pokémon anime. Playing the demo will also let players transfer this Greninja to the full retail game when it comes out on November 18.
