Pokemon Sun and Moon is going to be one of the most talked about games during and after E3. After all, it is the newest installment of the ridiculously popular series developed by Game Freak. Two new Pokemon and the return of a fan favorite is going to make these new games even more popular before its release date this November.
The two new Pokemon were revealed in the latest issue of CoroCoro magazine, making up for their troll article a few months back. Siliconera has confirmed that the two new Pokemon are Nokkoala, the ?Half-Awake Pokemon? and Iwanko, a rock-type Pokemon that also looks like an adorable puppy.
Nekkoala is a fairly interesting Pokemon, as it?s Definite Sleep ability prevents it from being hit by other status ailments aside from sleep. He should be very useful against bug and grass Pokemon, since they usually have moves that can paralyze or poison other Pokemon. That won?t be the case with Nekkoala, though the player better hope that the opposing Pokemon doesn?t have the Sleep Powder maneuver.
Iwanko might seem like a cute rock-type Pokemon, but it does seem to be an important creature of the game, despite not being a legendary. Apparently, Iwanko will have some sort of connection with the three Pokemon starters ? Rowlet, Popplio and Litten ? making the puppy an essential capture for those who will pick the game up for their 3DS.
Aside from these two creatures, Kotaku has confirmed that Zygarde will be returning after first appearing in Pokemon X and Y. Unlike X and Y however, he will have multiple forms in Pokemon Sun and Moon, which has been rumored for quite some time.
Zygarde will have his dog forme and his more imposing final forme, which kind of looks like a Gundam. Two videos of each forme have been released, showing that Zygarde is a threat no matter what it looks like.
Pokemon Sun and Moon are slated for a November 18 release for the 3DS, though it will also be playable on 2DS and New 3DS. The two games will also be featured later this week on E3, along with Legend of Zelda Wii U.
