I'm glad they gave it the Dark typing, it suits it so well! Pretty cool design too.

I missed this news because Firefox crashed on me and lost my tabs. But I definitely am liking this new badass look for a well-known common Pokemon, and I love how interesting Dark/Normal typing is, since it's another new dual typing.

4x Fighting weakness does kinda suck, but at least it gets entirely different abilities than the normal Rattata as well. Now if only we get a Youngster Joey that uses one in-game...

The new Rattata looks amazing! I love its typing!

Edit: A new trailer was uploaded in the Pokémon Channel, have you guys already seen it in the direct?

There wil be especial Z-moves for certain Pokémon.... We already know about Raichu's and Snorlax's Z-moves... Just how many Z-moves will be in the game?

That Snorlax Z-Move is very terrifying.
I agree. Can't wait until my resident Snorlax-loving friend (TheFattestSnorlax) finds out about his fave Pokemon getting something special.

I like its design, and the typing fits well! I'll probably never end up using one but it's a cool form nonetheless :)

I laughed when they said "After 20 years of sleeping... Snorlax ir ready to use its own Z-move" xD But it's interesting to see he's getting a special move. Just how many Pokémon will get special Z-moves? Are they going to be Kanto only? I hope not ...

Seems like there will be more Z-moves than we previously thought if specific Pokemon are getting exclusive Z-moves. I'm starting to wonder whether those unexplained Kanto mons listed on the Japanese website (Dragonite, Lapras etc) will be getting one too?

Already they're looking exclusive to gen 1 Pokémon, just like Alola forms. So I'd say one for each Type and then however many for the lucky gen 1 Pokémon that get chosen for it, probably those who don't have a Mega Evolution.

Ok I'm seriously upset at nintendo. The directs used to be really interesting and detailed, but now I feel like they are filled out with just garbage. I came for pokemon and other NEW BIG REAL games. Street pass games? random indie tank game? Heck your "big" thing was a 2d pikman game. What the heck you downgrade a game serious and call it an improvement!?

They should just do 2-3 games for the entire half an hour with detail and everything. Not just here's dark rattata and then move on.

I think the Pokemon website let it slip that Alolan Raticate exists:

Alolan Rattata

In Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, you'll discover Rattata that are different from the Rattata you've met before. Unlike ordinary Rattata, urban areas are Alolan Rattata's main habitat. They are nocturnal and live in nests of several dozen. Alolan Raticate serve as their bosses.

The special Z moves makes me wonder...what if these special Z's have to do with the rumor about synchro evolution? Like, perhaps if you don't use it for a certain number of turns it'll do something special.

I love it. I think the typing is pretty good as well. I think the connection with Yungoos was really cool.

Can we talk about the Ghost-type Z-move though!

Alolan Raichu's Z-Move made my day. Snorlax's only made it even better. Also Alolan Rattata looks pretty cool, but I would have liked to see one for Raticate as well.

The special Z moves makes me wonder...what if these special Z's have to do with the rumor about synchro evolution? Like, perhaps if you don't use it for a certain number of turns it'll do something special.
Maybe? I was thinking that perhaps Ash-Greninja might show up in the games, but as (Playername)-Greninja instead. Well, it would be cool to see anyway. Maybe it could be this generation's answer to Mega Evolutions, besides Alolan forms.

I chuckled at that too. Its Z-Move has a cute name also, heh.

Like the others, Rattata's connection to Yungoos makes sense. Its designs I'm also fine with.

So many hands...

The Snorlax thing made me laugh too. I do wonder...is that yellow glow actually snorlax's eyes, it'll add another dimension to that 20 year thing xD.

Japanese version of the new trailer. Not much that is different, though.
