Pokémon Sun and Moon Starters Revealed

Lethal Leaves, Fiery Furballs and Slippery Snot Bubbles Await.

Following a recent announcement surrounding the newest addition to the popular Pokémon series – Pokémon Sun and Moon – it seems that five new pocket monsters will be joining the franchise’s hearty cast, in the form of three new starters and the two elusive legendaries featured on the games’ box art (via. Polygon). You can watch the debut launch trailer above.

The reveal showed off Sun and Moon’s new fire, water and grass-type starters, that trainers must choose between at the beginning of the game. To make the prospective decision less painful, The Pokémon Company have updated the game’s website with nifty descriptions of the three newest additions.

Rowlet is a flying grass-type, equipped with the ability to “attack without making sound”, allowing it to flutter past unnoticed, dealing weighty kicks to unwary enemies. Rowlet can also shower opponents with leaves, by way of its move, Leafage.

Litten – the games’ new fire-type, embraces its feline qualities with an uncanny ability to produce hairballs, although these creations are more fiery than they are furry, allowing the fire-type to launch flaming furballs towards enemies. This “fire cat” follows a somewhat traditional route for a fire pokémon, and can also use the ability Blase and Ember as its opener.

Popplio, meanwhile, is where things get a little goofier. This sea-lionish water-type not only looks sprung from a big-top circus event, Popplio is adorned with the ability to trap enemies in great, snotty bubbles with its snout, thanks to its Water Gun ability.

As for the majestic beings gracing Sun and Moon’s box art, there’s still not a great deal of information about them. Although the reveal did not drop any details about them, further information could still be to come.

Pokémon Sun and Moon launches this year on November 18 for the 3DS. The titles are just one part of this year’s celebration of Pokémon’s 20th anniversary, amongst downloads for legendary Pokémon, as well as a vista of other plans.
