A Pokemon Snap-like mode makes its debut in the latest trailer for Pokemon Sun and Moon…
Pokemon Sun and Moon Latest News
The latest trailer for Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon reveals that the games will include a new Poke Finder feature that will, essentially, add a Pokemon Snap quest to the upcoming sequels.
Sun and Moon‘s Poke Finder allows players to utilize certain photography spots to take pictures of Pokemon in the wild and receive points for their efforts based on how good the photos are. Points can then be used to purchase upgrades for their camera that will unlock new abilities and increase your overall photo quality.
Additionally, Sun and Moon will take place 12 hours apart from each other. This time difference is tied into the time of our world (specifically, the time on your 3DS), meaning that playing different versions and different time will result in aesthetic changes as well as the appearance of unique Pokemon. Speaking of unique Pokemon, a new type of creature known as an “ultra beast” will appear in the game. The nature of these beasts remains something of a mystery, but the one shown in the trailer does seem to possess some kind of shapeshifting abilities.
Add to this some unique evolutionary forms based on which copy of the game you own as well as new Pokemon types and few running side-quests, and it looks like we’ve got a couple of stacked sequels to look forward to later this year.
Pokemon Sun and Moon Release Date
Nintendo has announced the release date for their highly anticipated Pokemon Sun and Moon games this morning. Players will get to continue their quest to catch ‘em all on November 18 in the US and November 23 in the UK.
Pokemon Sun and Moon Trailer
A new trailer for Pokemon Sun and Moon introduces Z-Moves, special abilities that can be unlocked by a trainer with a special bracelet. Any Pokemon holding a Z-Crystal can perform the special attacks. This sounds a bit like how Mega Evolution worked in X and Y. Check out the trailer:
More new Pokemon have been revealed for the upcoming Sun and Moon versions. Those Pokemon include Comfey, who pretty much looks like a lei turned Pokemon, and a ghost type named Mimikyu, who dresses in a Pikachu costume. Mimikyu is really adorable and sorta creepy. Like he’s wearing Pikachu’s skin or something. Also, his name is a pun.

The latest Pokemon Sun and Moon trailer has unveiled a new Pokemon named Salandit, a Toxic Lizard who’s a poison- and fire-type. One of his abilities, Corrosion, allows him to poison any Pokemon, no matter their immunities.
Check out the trailer below:
“Salandit emits toxic gas, together with flames, from the base of its tail. This poisonous gas has a sweet smell, and anyone who unknowingly breathes it in will become dizzy. Salandit is not a very powerful Pokémon, but its cunning nature allows it to battle fiercely by throwing its opponents off balance.
“Salandit females not only release toxic gases, they can also emit pheromones that attract males of all species, including Pokémon and humans. Inhaling these pheromones may cause opponents to be controlled by Salandit’s will.”

Solgaleo is a psychic/steel Pokemon, while Lunala is a psychic/ghost. The legendaries invoke the power of the sun and moon respectively for their special abilities: Sunsteel Strike and Moongeist Beam.
A map of Alola is also shown in the trailer, and it looks to be separated into four large islands, teasing quite a bit of travel by water. Check out the region map:
The trailer also teases new characters, including Professor Kukui and his assistant Lille, as well as Lille’s friend, Hau.

Pokemon Sun and Moon Confirmed
Nintendo has confirmed that Pokemon Sun and Moon are the next two big Pokemon adventures. The games will arrive in Holiday 2016 for 3DS. No further details were revealed.
The existence of the games leaked in February when logos and trademarks were discovered on a European trademark database. Nintendo then confirmed the news in a Pokemon-centric Nintendo Direct.
Sun and Moon are the first main Pokemon games since 2013’s X and Y, which launched for the 3DS. Nintendo is also releasing the original three Pokemon games, Red, Blue, and Yellow, on its Virtual Console this weekend for play on the 3DS. Pokemon you capture in those games will be fully transferrable into Sun and Moon.
Although we don’t know all of the Pokemon that will appear in the new games, Japanese magazine CoroCoro revealed the 722nd Pokemon, Magiana. This new legendary Pokemon will first appear in the movie Pokemon the Movie: X Y & Z – Volcanion and the Tricky Magiana, which will be out in Japan in July. The magazine revealed that Magiana was created by man and that it’s 500-years-old. Here’s a picture of the new Pokemon:
