Wooot!

Cool video!
Liking the typing, I think (correct me if Im wrong) that these are unique typings for the legendaries. Casually oneshotting Pseudo's like its their daily activities.

What role will the rotom play? is it just for information and feedback, or is there any battle adventage? like additional info about the opponents pokémon?


Rest, okay kinda cool.

I didn't expect the new Rotom, let alone Steel and Ghost for the legendaries' secondary types. I was kinda right about Psychic though for both (although more for Solgaleo than Lunaala) since a lot had that type speculated. Anyways, nice to see we have new characters, and the rival's name officially confirmed.

The protagonists' artwork is looking nice as well. Can't wait for this game!

We got two mythicals with those typings. Jirachi (P/S), and Hoopa bound (P/G).

The male player character's artwork prominently shows off a bracelet with the crystal from the Japanese version of the titles.

The Alola region is "chock full of nothin' but rare Pokémon". All new Pokémon, maybe?
My hypothetical Galar team:
Spoiler:
Rillaboom, Toxtricity, Grimmsnarl, Coalossal, Polteageist, Frosmoth

Type combos I desire:
Grass / Fire
A real Grass / Electric
A proper Grass / Rock

Hmm, Hala isn't the professor, nor the assistant it looks like. He could be Kukui's dad (potentially the Player's grandfather then as we aren't sure if cousin was referring to an actual biological bond), possibly a retired professor.

You saying Alola will pull a Unova on us? Both regions are based on parts of the US, so maybe...

Anyways, I did look back at the protagonist artwork and it appeared that the crystals from the Japanese logo are on the bracelets they are wearing. I heard theories comparing them to Burst Hearts from the Pokemon ReBurst manga but I don't like the concept of fusion-based evolution.

The crystal is a bit easier to see on the male, since the female's one looks like it's obscured but the question that's also raised is will Mega Evolution be back, or will it be dropped in favour of this supposed new evolution mechanic?

I said Kukui was the professor! Everyone laughed at me. :(

All new Pokemon? Well, except for Meowth and Rotom, which are confirmed to at least exist in the region. Obviously we don't know for sure if they're actually in the wild, but it seems like they aren't pushing the whole 'all new Pokemon' thing. In B/W they really shoved the new Pokemon down our throats, I don't remember seeing any old Pokemon during the main game, even just as overworlds.

I would say that quote would more suggest that the Dex is going to be pretty interesting over all - it could be all new Pokemon, or a lot of new Pokemon with some old ones which are cool or usually rare (i.e. no route 1 Pidgey).

@Hiroshi, Kukui is not your cousin, that's just Hawaiian slang. Or maybe you knew that and I'm misinterpreting your post.

One other interesting thing to notice is the battle scenes of Solgaleo battling a Salamence and Lunala battling a Gengar. Looking closely at the fact Gengar and Salamence's models seem similar to their 6th Gen models, I presume the older generation Pokemon will be retaining their 6th Gen models.

But also, could this imply we could have a mixed-gen regional Dex again, or if the Gastly and Bagon lines will be in the Alola Dex? I liked X/Y's handling of the regional Dex, and if it's implied we could have different Pokemon living on each island it could seem likely we'll have a divided regional Dex like Kalos did.

The player characters' artwork. If you look closely, the "Burst Heart" on the girl's bracelet looks blue, while the boy's is yellow. In the logos, yellow was in Moon's and blue was in Sun's. Don't know the relevance of that yet, if there is any...

Worth pointing out that none of the art for other characters has the bracelet or the crystal.

Also, check their shoes. The boy's remind me of popplio, and the girl's of litten.
What, no Rowlet shoes?

I wonder if the shoes mean that Popplio will be associated as the male trainer's canonical starter, while the female's canonical starter could be Litten. Maybe this means Hau's canonical starter might be Rowlet? I'm reminded of Pinkie-Dawn and how he tends to do this in his playthroughs...

But nice to see that the crystals in the bracelets match the ones in the Japanese logos, with the male having the orange crystal and the female having the blue one. I guess it's because the sun is associated with masculinity and the moon is associated with femininity but I think it'll change based on the version you're playing.

The news just keeps on coming.

"It has been confirmed that Pokémon Sun & Moon will be featured on Nintendo Treehouse Live @ E3 on June 14th 2016 which feature new information and developer stories."

As for what was revealed today, I'm super psyched for these games. All these new, unexpected features cropping up are shaping up the games nicely!
Maybe we could see new Pokemon revealed. For XY I recall it was around E3 time we had Vivillon and Noivern revealed, among a bunch of other Kalos Pokemon.

Also, one of the videos posted on the Japanese YouTube channel revealed the protagonist's bedroom changes design based on gender again. The female's version seems to be a more yellow-orange colour scheme as opposed to Serena's room being mainly pink in XY.

The official site says that Lillie will play an important role in SM. She also dislikes Pokémon battles (I'm reminded of N). If she turns out be the Team leader then I expect a Plasma like goal. Btw has anyone here watched the S/M Japanese trailer?

The crystals are probably a way to Mega Evolve without having to many different stones. In the Volcaneon movie, the evil guy had something similar in his staff and was able to Mega Evolve multiple pokemon. I think it is just away to register possible Mega Pokemon that you have unlocked so that there isn't 300+ Mega Stones in the future.

As for number of pokemon, I would say we will get 110 like my original thought was, but we will end up having old pokemon, probably not to the extent of Kalos though until after the Elite 4. The Dex will probably be divided into 4 pokedexs.

As far as I have seen, I haven't seen a Japanese exclusive trailer. There isn't a new one on the Japanese site.

I imagine 4 dexes of 100 if we go the Kalos route. If we get two dexes one west, another east then maybe 250 as a call back to Johto like the 150 in Kalos' dex was to Kanto (minus Mew of course).

I thought that at first but there's a video clip on the Japanese website that shows a shot of a beach with some Slowpoke walking around.

It could be that most of the returning Pokemon will be ones that are traditionally considered rare. (Like Feebas for example, maybe they'll be as common as Magikarps and Tentacools now. :P)

I apparently noticed in the Japanese trailers that the opposite-gendered protagonist doesn't seem to appear in the story. Maybe Game Freak are going to pull a 5th Gen on us and make him/her only appear as an AI partner in the new battle facility?

Solgaleo is the Sunne Pokémon and Lunala is the Moone Pokémon.
I mean I know that there are other Pokémon classified as Sun Pokémon and Moonlight and Crescent Moon. But what the hell is a Sunne and a Moone ._.?
Maybe they're a fancy way of saying it?

Also, there's this blurb:

"Solgaleo and Lunala hold a vital key to your adventures in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. These two Pokémon are Legendary Pokémon, and they play a crucial role in the story. But their place in the world is still wrapped in mystery!"

I wonder if this means we have to catch the mascot to progress the story again?
