Ommg yay <3 Lapras, Sharpedo and Tauros along with Stoutland eh? Great choices and it's nice to see some of the underdogs get love (literally so with Stoutland, though we already knew he was able to carry the trainer!). I love the way the Pokémon are caught and the post-capture screen, it's really nice~ The stuff at the end with the trainers/starters was cute too. And yeey boat. ♥ All-around hype.

At this point I'm more hyped now than ever to see what that bracelet actually does and the benefits of it. :o
If I recall watching the new Japanese trailer we saw the symbols for the Grass, Fire and Water-types appear on the starters during the "activation" scene of this new mechanic. Maybe the bracelet allows Litten, Popplio and Rowlet to use special moves or something.

Seeing all the different environments like the volcanic area just gets me really excited for these games! I can't wait to explore the islands and see all the different areas.

I've updated the article with what I noted to be highlights. Let me know what else should be added! Got the posing --> starter animation thing (synergy evolution? special move? something outside battles?), Amie being back (!!!), and notes on other Pokemon seen.

With Amie being back, Sun & Moon are quickly rising up to be some of the best Pokemon games ever. Now I am even more excited for these to be released!

I do wonder what those new options will be for Amie. Looks like one of them is grooming the Pokemon, maybe like Nintendogs.

not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need--
not as a call to battle, though embattled we are--
but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle, year in and year out."

It's awesome to hear Pokemon Amie has returned, since I loved that feature so much in 6th Gen and I really want to see how the new 7th Gen Pokemon would react and how cute they would act towards you.

While I was playing my Y today and trying to evolve my Eevee, I was hoping that Amie would return in Gen 7, but I thought that it needed to be updated with more features and better backgrounds.... and what do you know? This trailer drops!! I'm loving this game more and more each day. I'm especially interested in the new Jojo move the Pokemon have, maybe it's a special type of move based off the Pokemon's type?

I just love the trainers' poses. It's like Jojo. They're fantastic. If I could, I would just continually pull off those poses in battles. I'm definitely in the camp that the bracelet is related to super moves.

You know, didn't one of the Chinese leaks or something mention something about Aime making a return but with more features or something?

I guess this reveal supports that leak. :x Shows we can't dismiss every leak so easily, then!
I forgot about the Chinese leak mentioning Amie, so maybe it does have some credibility that we might get more evidence of later on.

That gives no credit to it to be honest. It was almost guaranteed Aime would be making a return and that there would probably be more features.

I'm psyched when I saw that Pokémon Amie is back, but with grooming as well (I think you can see brush icon if you noticed well in that section of the video), since it is one of my fave features in Gen 6 games. On other side, I'm curious about these poses the trainers make, I'm wondering if it's related to the secret thing that are related to starters and Rockruff?

Nope, Chinese leak is dead. It mentions the video would have a new water beaver esque pokemon and angry ground and fighting gorilla. Neither showed so probably fake, plus the starter evos piggybacked off of the "leaked" concepts arts which made it suspicious.

So looking at the Battle Royal scene in this trailer, it appears Rowlet learns Razor Leaf and Litten learns Fire Fang. Popplio was shown attacking a bird Pokemon with Water Gun but upon close inspection it appears to be a Fletchling.

Maybe the Pokemon mentioned could be revealed at a later date. Plus, I don't think we should give up on the starter evolutions yet just because a leak was proven to be fake. There was that one PokeBeach leak during XY pre-release that somehow accurately predicted some of the features from that game.

Neither of these were mentioned in the Chinese leak. It only mentioned a rugby monkey, a snowman, and a cucumber. And it said nothing specifically about this video.

Here is what spread the Chinese leak, it then went to other sites, and the poster gave out a bit more when it got traction:

Just look at the thumbnail as it's the the screencap of the thread. Sure the pokemon could be left out, but doesn't make much sense. Also translation team wouldn't know release dates for footage. I'll remain skeptical, but it's not really that solid atm.

That is definitely not a Mega symbol but definitely the supposed Synergy moves. Now I feel that my theory of Mega Evolution getting removed in this generation is actually getting credibility.

I did also notice that with the starters' Synergy moves, Rowlet's is definitely the best looking since it has a huge field of flowers destroying the opponent. Litten and Popplio's seem to look less impressive, which now leads me to believe Rowlet may end up being the starter that gets heavily favored in the marketing, like how Torchic, Piplup, Oshawott and Froakie were for their respective generation.

Going to side with IcyIce here:

I think that Amie being back in isn't a terribly hard thing to guess. Meanwhile, the thing with leaks is that with any sort of guess about what is in the game or not, if you make several guesses then some are going to turn out to be true, particularly broad aspects like a feature returning without mentioning details of what is new, etc.

In short, take any leak with a grain of salt. Some leaks that were true did have a couple details that didn't turn out to be correct as well. One thing for sure is that you'll see new 'leaks' closer to release, and most will be fake.

Pokemon Amie returning also makes sense since Eevee needs to use it in order to evolve into Sylveon.

My mistake, I've been seeing these two combined as one for some odd reason the past two weeks.

Either way, both are relatively safe, with a few interesting lists. So it's hard to side on them. No gyms I think is plausible since we have no gym leaders seen yet or any major signs on the islands.

Perhaps they could replace leaders with tribe chiefs? That be neat. Don't know how likely, but it could work base on the whole Hala situation. We see him as an important figure, yet he has no bio on the site. I wonder why he would be hidden.
