Pokemon fans woke up to a handful of brand new details regarding the upcoming Pokemon Sun and Moon titles this morning, as Nintendo and The Pokemon Company revealed a brand new trailer for the title, as well as a few details regarding the game that we have not heard yet.
First off, and probably most importantly; Pokemon Sun and Moon will be taking place in the Aloha regions, which is based on the real world islands of Hawaii. The region has now been confirmed to contain five different islands, where players will be able to travel to, to collect gym badges, collect Pokemon, and more. Four of these islands will be natural islands, and one being artificial (odds are the artificial island has something to the with the legendary Pokemon).
Players will be able to choose their hero or heroine in the title, as you will play a trainer who has just moved to the region of Aloha. You will also be able to customize your character in this title, much like how you were able to do in Pokemon X & Y.
There are several other important characters who will also be in the title, you can learn more about them below.
Professor Kukui: Professor Kukui is the Alola region’s dependable Pokémon professor. He lives near your home and looks out for you. He’s passionate about his research into Pokémon moves and has sometimes taken direct hits from Pokémon when there was something to be learned from it. Sporting a white lab coat slung casually over his bare torso, he shows off his own unique style.
Lillie: Lillie is a mysterious girl who assists the professor. This young girl is about the same age as your character, and she’s working as Professor Kukui’s assistant for personal reasons. She’s not fond of making Pokémon fight in battles, but she loves reading and has devoured many books. Lillie will play an important role in the story of Pokémon Sunand Pokémon Moon.
Your Friend Hau: Hau is a Pokémon-loving young boy with a big appetite! He’s the same age as your character. When you move to the Alola region, he makes friends with you right away. He has a real weakness for malasada, a famous treat in the Alola region, and he is always in search of malasada shops. He is a big-hearted boy who really loves Pokémon.
Along with these details, Nintendo has also revealed that Pokemon Sun & Moon will in fact be shown off at E3, despite their original claim that Zelda was to be the only title present.
