The Pokemon Company has released a new trailer for “Pokemon Sun and Moon.” Players will be happy to know that it reveals a lot of new information, including the legendary Pokemon, some of the characters and a surprise feature for the Pokedex.

The first legendary is Solgaleo, a Psychic/Steel Pokemon that has the Full Metal Body ability. This ability acts almost like a shield that will guard Solgaleo’s stats from being lowered by its opponent. The gameplay shows off the Sunsteel Strike.

Lunala, a bat-like Psychic/Ghost Pokemon possesses the Shadow Shield. Its signature move is the Moongeist Beam, which has a similar power as Solgaleo’s Sunsteel Strike, where it disregards the ability of the opponent.

The “Pokemon Sun and Moon” trailer also introduces some new characters. The basic designs for the hero for the female and male versions can be seen, as well as the options for race and hair colour. Fans also get to meet the characters, like Professor Kukui. His quick dialogue gives a slight hint that are Pokemon can be encountered within the Alola Region, since it is made up of several islands.

There’s also the professor’s mysterious assistant Lillie. Finally, there’s Hau, the hero’s friend in the region, and one who appears to be a local.

The trailer ends with the announcement that the Pokedex in “Pokemon Sun and Moon” will feature a Rotom. The Rotom addition allows for the completion of the next-gen Pokedex. According to DualShockers, the Rotom will act similarly as in the Pokemon Anime, where the Pokedex will talk to the player.

If the new footage for “Pokemon Sun and Moon” is not enough, Nintendo is preparing more come E3 2016. It seems that the fairly large floor space at the Nintendo booth allows for more than just “The Legend of Zelda” to take center stage.

Polygon reported that Nintendo’s E3 2016 livestream via the Treehouse will showcase the new Pokemon titles, including “Pokemon GO” and “Pokemon Sun and Moon.” Specifically, “Pokemon Sun and Moon” will be aired as a live gameplay on June 14, though it may not be a playable title, as Nintendo has reserved that for “The Legend of Zelda.”

“Pokemon Sun and Moon” will be released on Nov. 18. Check out the covers for each game and the full new trailer below.
