Through a hypetastic youtube video and a “good ol’ days” Japanese trailer, Nintendo has confirmed several awesome things about the upcoming Pokémon Sun and Moon versions! For the full list, look no further:

  • The game’s starter Pokémon have been shown off: Rowlet, a Grass/Flying type Owl that looks super cuddly. Litten, a Fire-type cat with really sharp whiskers. Popplio, a seal that looks like a clown only not nearly as fun to punch.

  • The region featured in the game is Alola, heavily inspired by Pacific Islander cultures (Hawaii in particular) and looks more detailed than any region before it. Gameplay looks to be in the same vein as the previous 3DS Pokémon titles.

  • Character customisation is returning from X and Y, after being sadly absent from Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Dressing my energetic trainer girl in cute outfits was the best part of the game. Or was that just me?

  • A release date of November 18th. The day after my birthday, can I get a “heck yeh”? No? Oh…okay.

  • Finally, Sun and Moon‘s legendary Pokémon and cover stars were revealed. Sun‘s is a majestic white lion that would make Kimba swoon, and Moon‘s is a suspiciously-airborne gigantic bat. Seriously, how does it stay in the air with that many holes in its wings?
