Well, I guess it's confirmed that Alolan forms are Gen 1 only. Even the goddamn professor of that gen got one.

Now where's Alolan form Gary/Blue?

Image Itty bitty trailer gives us another taste of Ultra Beasts. This time, specifically, UB-02.

Indeed, that is technically just #02 on there, even though there looks to be two completely different Ultra Beasts on there. One is known as UB-02 Absorption and the other is known as UB-02 Beauty. Which one appears depends on the version, so I guess you could call them version exclusives. Absorption appears in Sun and Beauty appears in Moon.

But are these different formes, or is this something else entirely? As of now, Ultra Beasts are still listed as their own thing as opposed to Pokémon. There is a lot of mystery behind them...

Before this trailer was released, however, Corocoro scans arrived, which also showcased these two Ultra Beasts. I decided to wait until the trailer since it was only two days ago before talking about it. However, besides UB-02, we also got a new Pokémon...or maybe two?

Rockruff's evolution has been revealed! It actually has two different ones, which currently might seem independent of the version you own again! If that's the case, that's a series first: Version-exclusive evolutions! That is still not confirmed however and they actually just be dependent on the type of day, much like Espeon and Umbreon. For the record, they are known as the same Pokémon so these are different forms, not different Pokémon. They are known as Midday Form and Midnight Form. Midday looks more like a traditional wolf and has a move called AccelRock, which is a priority move, while Midnight resembles more of a werewolf with glowing red eyes and has the move Counter. No typing or Abilities are known as of yet, though I think it's safe to assume they at least keep their Rock-Typing.

---------------

One last thing: Did you guys enjoy Pokémon Origins?



Here's a pseudo-sequel!

Image Still on the fence about which version to get, like I was? Well then, this video might just help make that decision easier, which finally reveals some Version Exclusive Pokémon (along with a few other details). Obviously, we already knew about the cover legends of Solgaleo and Lunala, and last week we got different versions of UB-02, but now we can add a couple more.

First is Passimian, which is exclusive to Sun. It is the Teamwork Pokémon and a Fighting-Type. It is 6'07'' and weighs 182.5 lbs. They live in large troops of 20 to 30 individuals. The leader will take 10 of its best in search of food. Their teamwork is strong and the boss also determines what mark they wear on their arm. The boss will put their troop through vigorous training to improve their coordination and ability to handle Berries. It can be so difficult, however, that some Passimian run away. They attack by tossing Berries at opponents. They will work in tandem, passing Berries between each other to confuse the opponent. They don't just pitch hard Berries for hard hitting attacks, either. They will also use soft Berries to obscure the opponent's sight. A raised Passimian wants its Trainer to have the qualities of a leader and watches its Poké Ball pitching form. It will not listen to those with poor form. It has a brand new Ability called Receiver. When an ally faints, it will inherit the Ability of its partner. Partner had Levitate? Now Passimian has Levitate!

Next up is Oranguru, which is exclusive to Moon. It is the Sage Pokémon and is a Normal/Psychic-Type. It is 4'11'' and weighs 167.6 lbs. They can have Inner Focus or Telepathy as their Ability. They live solitary lives without seeing much action. They position themselves high up in trees to meditate. Some people once thought they were humans that lived in the forests long ago, so they've earned the name "the people of the forests." They are very kind to other Pokémon, providing medicine and food when needed. There have been some sightings of Oranguru using items normally only humans can use. Some even claim to have seen them using a Poké Ball! The fan they hold was actually made by the Oranguru themselves, using leaves and bound together by its own fur. It has a Signature Move called Instruct, which lets the selected target use its last move again immediately.

Finally, we have Rockruff's evolution, which Corocoro talked about earlier. But the thing about this is that what it evolves into depends on the version you are playing! Introducing Lycanroc, which has a Midday Form and a Midnight Form! Getting Midday Form requires an abundance of solar energy (Pokémon Sun) while getting Midnight Form requires an abundance of lunar energy (Pokémon Moon). They are both known as the Wolf Pokémon, are pure Rock-Types, and weigh 55.1 lbs. Midday Form is 2'07'' while Midnight Form is 3'07''. They both can have Keen Eye as an Ability, but Midday can have Sand Rush while Midnight can have Vital Spirit. Lycanroc live solo, no pack, so they are literal lone wolves. Each have their own territory and live without interfering others, preventing most unnecessary fights. Lycanroc obeys its Trainer dutifully. In fact, should a Trainer accept its rather rebellious Rockruff phase, Lycanroc will never betray that Training, earning its loyalty forever.

Midday Form is known for its speedy movements, bewildering opponents. Dodging left and right, it attacks with the sharp rocks of its mane as it slips right past them. It gets a Signature Move in the form of Accelerock. This is a Priority Move that happens to be Rock-Type.

Midnight Form provokes its opponents in for an attack. When they fall for it and strike, Lycanroc counters with a single devastating blow that finishes the opponent in one fell swoop. The stronger their opponent is, the more excited for battle they get. The thrill of the fight is so much for them that their eyes glow. They don't even mind getting hurt if it means victory. However, they will feel contempt for Trainers for giving it orders it doesn't agree with, or outright force them to battle. Then again, it will feel a deep trust for a Trainer that can unleash its full potential and power in battle. It can learn Counter after evolving from Rockruff into Midnight Form.

But new Pokémon weren't the only things showcased. Have a gander at all the customization options for your Trainer, even more robust than what X and Y offered. Style your hair in a variety of different ways, get different pieces of headgear or even none at all, and how about wearing some contacts to change your eye colour? This is all stuff you can do to make your journey more personable!

We also have been given a new replacement to Pokémon Amie: Pokémon Refresh! This is no longer so much about playing with your Pokémon as it is about taking care of them. After battle, they can sometimes get really dirty, so it's important to clean off any dirt, rinse, dry, and then a quick brush. Your Pokémon will appreciate it a lot, making things like avoiding attacks happen more often, much like Pokémon Amie did. On top of that, you can also use this mode to cure them of status ailments such as Poison or Paralysis. Feeding them Poké Beans and petting them will also raise their affection for you.

Finally, we have two brand new Pokémon-exclusive Z-Moves. First one is for Pikachu, called Catastopika. Pikachu borrows its Trainer's strength, wraps itself in a ball of electricity, and slams against the opponent to deal heavy damage. This ends up being Pikachu's strongest move. We also have one for Eevee, called Extreme Evoboost. Eevee calls upon the powers of Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Glaceon, and Sylveon to help it in battle, sharply boosting all of its stats by 2.

One last thing to discuss that wasn't shown in trailers is about Pokémon Bank and its connectivity with Sun and Moon. First, let's get the negative part out of the way: The update will not arrive until January 2017, so two months after the release of Sun and Moon so if you were hoping to use your amazing team from X/Y/Or/As, you're gonna have to wait a bit. Once the update hits, though, transfer will be available. BE WARNED HOWEVER!! Once sent to Sun and Moon, the Pokémon can not be sent back, and you cannot deposit items, as per usual. The Poké Transporter will also get an update, making use of the VC releases of Red/Blue/Yellow as promised before, just like with Black/White/Black 2/White 2 before. Again, once transferred, they can't be sent back. They get sent straight to the Bank, but they can only be taken out into Sun and Moon. You cannot transfer Red/Blue/Yellow Pokémon to X/Y/Or/As. One other feature the Bank will get once updated is a new Pokédex feature. You'll be able to read information on all the Pokémon you've ever transferred to the Bank using the save data from X/Y/Or/As/Sun/Moon!

Image Yo, we've got the mid-tier evolutions of our starters now! Check them out!!

First up, Rowlet's evolution Dartrix, the Matt Smith Blade Quill Pokémon. It retains its Grass/Flying-Typing and the Ability Overgrow. It is 2'04'' and weighs 35.3 lbs. It is extremely sensitive to other presences in its area, able to detect opponents behind it to throw sharp feathers at the target, which it keeps hidden within its wings, without even looking at them. Its precision is remarkable. It even goes beyond throwing the blade quills in a straight line -- It can even bend them to change their trajectories! It reveals a bit of snobbiness in its personality, caring a great deal about its appearance and grooming its feathers almost all the time, but in truth, its actually a bit of a birdbrain. Once found out, it'll struggle to gloss over its mistakes, but ends up just making it look even worse. It'll sometimes get so bothered by dirty feathers that it'll lose focus on the battle, and even end up retiring on the spot! It's up to Trainers to help it through this difficult stage and overcome this fault to unleash its full potential!
Bowties are cool.

Next we have Litten's evolution Torracat, the Fire Cat Pokémon. It retains its Fire-Typing and the Ability Blaze. It is 2'04'' and weighs 55.1 lbs. The bell-like object on the base of its neck is actually a flame sac, an organ that can produce flames. When its emotions gets high, so too does the temperature on the flame sac, and when it spits out flames, it sounds out a chime that sounds just like a bell. These flames are then used for attacking opponents. Its mane serves as an excellent sensory organ, capable of detecting hidden opponents every which way. It has a great love for battling and will attack so relentlessly, its opponents lose the will to fight. Though it sometimes acts like a spoiled child in front of Trainers and Pokémon it has built a strong relationship of trust with. The cat punch (...uh oh...) this Pokémon can dish out with its forelegs is so powerful, it can bend iron bars and knock a grown man down in one hit!

Finally, Popplio's evolution, we have Brionne, the Pop Star Pokémon. It retains its Water-Type and the Ability Torrent. It is 2'00'' and weighs 38.6 lbs. It learns how to dance from members of its colony, and sometimes learns new techniques from watching humans. It is a hard worker and pours its efforts into it until it can memorize each dance. As it dances, it creates balloon after balloon. In battle, it'll bemuse its opponent through its dancing before sending out the balloons to deal big damage. Brionne can dance in perfect sync with each other, even if they just met for the very first time. Sometimes, on moonlit nights, you can see throngs of them dancing in perfect fluidity. It will always act cheery and upbeat, even if its feeling sad. It'll never let its sorrow show. It will only ever show it to Trainers it has opened its heart completely to.

But, as always, the trailers don't end with the first stuff! We've got more to show! Introducing the Festival Plaza!! This is basically a multiplayer hub world, for both local and online multiplayer. It is run by Sophocles, which you may remember as one of the four Trial Captains we saw in an earlier trailer. When you connect to other players, you can do many different activities, and these including battling and trading and some other new things called "missions" where you and a group must try to accomplish a singular goal to win Festival Coins. These are used for various different things around the plaza, including shops with special items on sale, bouncy castles to train your Pokémon's EVs, and even dyes for your existing clothes.

Also, have you ever felt bad about leaving your Pokémon in the PC Boxes and never using them? Well, it's time to give them something fun to do with Poké Pelago! Here, they can explore various different islands at their leisure and enjoy a number of activities, benefiting them and you. On Isle Abeens, wild Pokémon will show up, and if given attention and show a liking to you, they may end up joining you without a fight. In Isle Aphun, you can send your Pokémon out to find hidden treasures and items, including various different evolution stones. You can also give these Pokémon various different kinds of water to drink to keep them hydrated, which can boost their EVs or their EXP.

And at long last, we can finally confirm that a feature from Gen VI Battling is making a return appearance: Mega Evolutions! While no new Megas were shown, your Z-Ring does in fact come equipped with the ability to Mega Evolve your Pokémon, just like the Mega Ring back in X/Y/OR/AS. WITH THAT SAID, an important bit of news regarding WCS 2017 and perhaps future WCSs as well: Mega Evolutions are NOT ALLOWED! Those looking to take on serious competitive play and have used Megas before may have to adjust their strategy if they want to go to official competitions now, it seems. As an aside, the official site states that the Mega Stones are found either from talking to certain people or going to special stores, so perhaps that old sidequest of just trying to find the darn things at a specific hour in the day is maybe long gone.
(R.I.P. Kangaskhan)

The last thing shown off in the trailer is an announcement of a Demo, coming October 18th! In it, much like the ORAS Demo, you will experience a unique adventure separate form the main games and can even obtain a special Pokémon that you can then transfer to Sun/Moon: A Greninja! But this isn't just any old Greninja. This Greninja has the Ability Battle Bond, a brand new Ability added to the series. When it makes a Pokémon faint, Battle Bond triggers, turning it into Ash-Greninja! Indeed, the very same one from the anime! This was brought on because of the special bond phenomenon that Ash and Greninja shared during the series. Only one other time has this type of thing ever occurred, and it was over 100 years ago! Its strength is enhanced compared to normal Greninja and its stronger legs allows it to move so quickly, it is difficult for enemies to see. It becomes able to create a giant Water Shuriken on its back which it can then use against opponents.

That's all the trailer showed, but the website had a little bit more to talk about in regards to the update to the Global Link. You can do good ole Ratings Battle once again and have your records saved, and the original 3 rulesets return: Single Battles for mono-a-mono fights with teams of 3, Double Battles for tag-team fights with teams of 4, and Special Battles, which has you take part in special events that differentiate greatly from the standard Ratings rules. For Season 1, which begins right when the game launches, it is said that it'll allow use of Pokémon not normally allowed, including the legendaries Solgaleo and Lunala, the QR-Code downloaded Magearna, Ash-Greninja, and more.

But a new fourth kind of Battle is being added to Ratings: Championship Battles! These year-long battles emulate exactly what is done in the official championships for Worlds, and you'll be able to test out the ruleset for 2017 right away! The new rules are as follows:
-Double Battles will only allow those found in the Alolan Pokédex (excluding certain ones, such as legendaries and mythicals)
-Mega Stones are not allowed
-Only Pokémon acquired in Sun/Moon can be used
It's as official as it gets.

Rating Battles also adds a new feature for the battle time called "Your Time". This is to help speed up battle process. You are each given 60 seconds per turn to make your move. In addition, you are also given a grand total of 10 minutes between all turns to finish a match. If "Your Time" runs out, you automatically lose, so you can't just sit there and grief a guy if you happen to be losing. You need to be quick! Don't take the full 60 seconds to think over a move either!

Note: X/Y/OR/AS will become eligible in Ratings sometimes after the January update that will let you connect Sun/Moon to the Bank.
Note: Special rulesets are anticipated in the future for when the ability to transfer Pokémon from Red/Blue/Yellow becomes available.

But maybe training seems too daunting, or maybe you just want some fresh ideas of what kind of team you'd like to build? Well, when the Global Link is updated, a brand new feature for Online battling will be added: Battle Teams! You can register up to six different teams online for quick access, but not just for you. These also can work as a Rental Team for players all around the world! By uploading them to the Global Link and getting the QR Code, you can share your team to anyone you want, who can then use them in Link Battles and certain Ratings Battles as well! Likewise, you can also download other players Battle Teams for yourself to try, perhaps even those of victors and champions in official competitions? A pretty great way to learn some snappy new techniques, if you ask me.

Finally, there are Global Missions, which are linked directly to your Festival Plaza. You can participate in these special missions and work together to achieve a common goal to win fabulous prizes. The theme for when it launches will be to catch a lot of Pokémon, which is pretty self explanatory. Be sure to register when you get the game so your status counts, and everyone will receive a gift if the goal is met!

Image Another trailer has been shown, and it's all about the evolutions. Some of the info here was revealed in a Corocoro magazine earlier, but here's all the English stuff!

First we have Silvally, the evolution of Type:Null. It is still a Normal-Type. It is 7'07'' and weighs 221.6 lbs. It's said that once it gains a partner that it can trust, it deliberately destroys its restraining device, unleashing its full power. Its Speed is no longer hindered and its senses are greatly heightened. It has a wild nature, but will obey a Trainer that it trusts. It will even put its own line in danger to protect its Trainer! Like with Type:Null, Silvally was created to oppose a certain threat... It has the Ability RKS System. By letting it hold on to exclusive items, you can change the type of the Pokémon to any of the other types in the game, as well as be able to change the type of its signature move Multi-Attack. In other words, it's like a lesser Arceus.

PS. Try saying RKS out loud quickly...

Next we have Hakamo-o, the evolution of Jangmo-o. It now changes to a Dragon/Fighting-Type. It is 3'11'' and weighs 103.6 lbs. It still has the Bulletproof/Soundproof Abilities. Once Jangmo-o evolves into Hakamo-o, it separates itself from its brethren to continue training solo. It is said wherever there Pokémon can battle each other, Hakamo-o appears. It actually dances just before battle as a show of its strength, clanging its scales together to make them ring out. Afterwards, it lets out a fierce battle cry to challenge its opponent. Its scales make for really strong armor that's hard to penetrate, so it doesn't care much for self defense, attacking its opponent with a flurry of attacks that are hard to dodge. As a result, however, its scales often get damaged and torn off, but since they grow back pretty much immediately, it doesn't concern itself with this. In fact, it takes pride in the number of scales its lost as a sign of how ferociously it battled, often showing its bared arms in a boast of victory.

Hakamo-o can then evolve further into Kommo-o. It retains the Dragon/Fighting-Typing as well as its Abilities Bulletproof/Soundproof. It is 5'03'' and weighs 172.4 lbs. After some harsh training, Hakamo-o evolves into Kommo-o. It then returns to its place of birth where it watches the Jangmo-o from a distance. There is a legend about Kommo-o that says that its glittering scales is said to drive away a great darkness from covering the world. It's said that the reason these Pokémon seek out battles is to gain enough strength to fight the darkness. When it detects another Pokémon, it rings the scales on its tail to alert them to its presence. It has no desire to battle weak Pokémon. Its greatest move is its uppercut. It swings its powerful arm from down below to launch its foe right into the sky! By raising its arm aloft, it can generate a force so strong, it changes the very landscape around it! It has a signature move called Clanging Scales, in which it clangs its scales together, creating a deafening sound that damages opponents. Kommo-o's Defense lowers afterwards, however.

We now move onto Steenee, the evolved form of Bounsweet. It is still a pure Grass-Type. It is 2'04'' and weighs 18.1 lbs. It retains the Abilities Leaf Guard and Oblivious. The calyx on Steenee's head is much harder than Bounsweet's, so it no longer fears getting stabbed. When it was a Bounsweet, it preferred to run away from other Pokémon, but as a Steenee, it can now play with other Pokémon instead. Once it evolves, its fragrance becomes even more delectable smelling, but it gains a more tomboy-ish personality as a result. Living with one can be quite the ordeal. As it moves around, its calyx spins on top of its head which can strike nearby objects, but Steenee doesn't give any care about that. It has a nasty combo attack where it whacks its opponent with the spinning calyx, causing them to flinch, and then giving a big kick to them. That usually does the trick!

And the end of this evolution chain, we have Tsareena. It is still a pure Grass-Type. It is 3'11'' and weighs 47.2 lbs. This Pokémon gives off the vibe of high-class nobility. Any human or Pokémon with evil in their mind will be severely punished by it. It has a nasty glare that it'll even use on its own Trainer if the two aren't completely in sync, or if the Trainer orders it to use a move that is ineffective. Only the strongest of Steenee evolve into Tsareena. It gains the blessing of other Steenee and then uses its strength to protect Bounsweet. It has honed its kicking skills as a Steenee to deal more effective damage against opponents, but moves with grace around the battlefield. In addition, its fragrance is so strong, it can distract opponents, leaving them open for a second attack. It has a signature move in the form of Trop Kick. It deals a flurry of kicks that lowers the opponent's Attack. The kicks are said to be based off the style of various different tropical countries. It's said that this Pokémon loses strength if touched on the crown-like protuberance on its head. While it keeps Leaf Guard as one of its Abilities, it drops Oblivious in exchange for Queenly Majesty. Its royalty is so intimidating with this Ability, it prevents Pokémon from using priority moves.

And the last of brand new evolutions is Ribombee, the evolved form of Cutiefly. It is still a Bug/Fairy-Type. Its height is 0'08'' and weighs 1.1 lbs. It continues to have Honey Gather/Shield Dust as its Abilities. Ribombee collect nectar and pollen to turn into Pollen Puffs. They can serve as food, but also to induce paralysis and dizziness in opponents. It'll sometimes use these puffs to strike enemies in battle. They also can have a relaxing effect or can relieve tiredness. They are distributed around the Alolan Region as high-priced supplements. They hate getting rained on. They have fine hairs on their body that is used to collect pollen, so rain makes them all wet and dirty. If you spot Ribombee bustling around a field of flowers, it can be sure that fair weather will continue.

We also got more Alolan Form Pokémon: Alolan Grimer and Alolan Muk. They now are Poison/Dark-Types. Their sizes have varied too, with Alolan Grimer being 2'04'' and weighing 92.6 lbs, and Alolan Muk being 3'03'' and weighing 114.6 lbs. In addition, they also changed their Abilities to Gluttony and Poison Touch, previously a Hidden Ability of theirs. When the population of Alola grew, so did its amount of garbage. As a result, Grimer were imported from other regions to use as a sort of garbage disposal as they feast on the garbage, which altered them over time. What appears to be teeth is actually residual toxins from the garbage it ate, which have hardened and crystallized. These cannot be broken down. Direct contact with them presents extreme danger. They are always eating garbage, but this can pose a problem if there is no more garbage to eat, as they'll instead grab any other manufactured item it can get its slimy mitts on. They are found all over Alolan's garbage processing plants. When the garbage is processed, it is given to the Alolan Grimer to feast on.

Alolan Muk will eat pretty much anything and will continue to do so without pausing, and if it feels the sharp pains of hunger, it runs amuck. Its voracious appetite is said to stem from its inability to maintain its energy levels without a constant influx of toxins. Its steady diet of weights and manufactured products has brought on a chemical change, creating a new kind of toxin. Their crystallized toxins are now located all around its body, not just its mouth. They can be very easily knocked lose, posing an extreme danger to anyone nearby. On the positive side, Alolan Grimer and Alolan Muk produce and store their own toxins within their body. This means that, unlike the ones we've seen in other regions, these Alolan versions don't release a terrible stench. So I guess there's that.

We've also got two new Trainers to showcase. First is the Kahuna of Akala Island, Olivia. Her skill is extraordinary for someone so young, but that's what it takes to become a Kahuna. Still, she insists that she's just a normal girl. We also have Captain Ilima, an expert on Normal-Type Pokémon and a graduate from the Trainer's School, and is a hero to the school's students.

----------------------



In addition, there was also a trailer for another new addition coming to Pokkén Tournament arcades: Scizor, giving more credence to the datamine from some time ago. It looks to be very fast with a nice mix of long and short range attacks. A sure favourite, from what I can gather. No word on any Wii U release, however. Based on the CCS, there is still a spot for two more, though we only know of one according to the datamine, Empoleon, so expect that soon.

Image Oh yeah, in case you missed it...

The demo is out right now! Go get your Greninja with Battle Bond! And see how the game has changed since Gen VI.

It feels very much like the ORAS demo, though probably a little lighter, with some events gated behind a time.

Also, Game Freak didn't learn their lesson from last time...
