Pikachu’s ultimate form is getting a radical upgrade.
A new trailer for Pokémon Sun and Moon has revealed some interesting content for the anticipated games. In it, we see some new Pokémon, but we also get a look at Alola versions of old favorites like Raichu (Pikachu’s evolution) and Meowth. Alola forms are variations of old Pokémon found only in Sun and Moon, which come out for the 3DS on November 18. The Pokémon series has sold over 200 million copies and is experiencing newfound popularity thanks to the craze surrounding its mobile release, Pokémon Go.
I’m excited about that new Marowak. Fire and Ghost type? Oh yeah, that sounds good.
According to VentureBeat, the trailer also shows off the game’s villains, Team Skull. Every Pokémon title has some sort of evil group, starting with Team Rocket in the originals, Red and Blue. Don’t worry, I’m sure you’ll find a way to defeat them through the power of friendship or something.
