On November 18th, 2016 The Pokemon Company will be launching its newest game to there series Pokemon Sun and Moon and we are here to give you 5 reasons why we are excited for the game.

1.  New Region

pokemon-sun-and-moon-alolaIn Pokemon Sun and Moon the game setting is in hawaii or as they call the region in game “Aloha”.The Aloha region looks beautiful and adventurous and we are excited to dive in to the new region and explore. In the Aloha Region you can do many activities such as poke finder and poke ride. All details for both activities are down below.

Poke Finder


Poke Finder  is a feature that will let you take pictures of Pokemon you find in the aloha region. When you use the Poké Finder in certain photo spots scattered throughout the Alola region, you can take pictures of Pokémon. Your

Pictures will be evaluated and as you take better pictures new abilities will become available.

Poke Ride


In the Alola region is something known as Poké Ride, in which certain Pokémon help people get to places they wouldn’t be able to reach by using human strength alone. These Pokémon don’t join your team, but you can call on them anytime to receive their help. This practice is typical of the way of life in Alola, where humans and Pokémon are so closely bound together.

2.  New Characters

In Pokemon Sun and Moon we are going to be introduce to some new characters in the series. New characters and there description will be down below.

Since ancient times, Lunala has been honored as an emissary of the moon. It is referred to with reverence as “the beast that calls the moon.” Lunala is constantly absorbing light and converting it into energy. With its wings spread to absorb the surrounding light and glittering like a crescent moon, it resembles a beautiful night sky. Lunala’s signature Moongeist Beam attack releases an ominous beam of light that disregards the target’s Ability.   

Lunala’s Ability is Shadow Shield, a new Ability that no previous Pokémon has had. With the Shadow Shield Ability, a Pokémon will take less damage from an attack that lands when the Pokémon has full HP.

It is referred to with reverence as “the beast that devours the sun.” Solgaleo’s body holds a vast amount of energy, and it shines with light when it’s active. It has a flowing mane with a remarkable resemblance to the sun. Its signature move is Sunsteel Strike, an attack that charges at an opponent with the force of a meteor, disregarding the target’s Ability.
Solgaleo’s Ability is Full Metal Body, a new Ability that no previous Pokémon has had. With the Full Metal Body Ability, a Pokémon’s stats will not be lowered by the effects of an opponent’s moves or Ability.
