Pokémon Sun and Moon Infodump




Greetings, everyone! As per usual, I'm Lief Katano. Unlike per usual, I'm going to be covering the new Pokémon Sun and Moon info.

The first new items are related to Solgaleo and Lunala. Solgaleo's a Steel/Psychic type. It sports the new ability Full Metal Body, which, as so far seen, completely negates stat drops, similar to Clear Body. Makes more sense than Registeel with Clear Body, at any rate. Its signature move is Sunsteel Strike, which can OHKO a Salamence. ...An untrained Salamence, at any rate.

Lunala is Psychic/Ghost. Its ability is Shadow Shield, which is the exact same as Multiscale - it lowers damage taken by half.

...The abilities are kind of creatively bankrupt. Then again, Black and White had not!Mold Breaker for their mascots, and X and Y were... better, but the abilities were variants of each other, so it's par for the course, really.

Its signature move is Moongeist Beam, which is a Ghost-type move. Both it and Sunsteel Beam have an innate Mold Breaker effect, allowing them to hit regardless of the target's ability.

Character customization returns! ...At least, it returns insofar as allowing you to choose a skin tone. But I'd be surprised if it doesn't return beyond that. :U

The Pokédex this time is a Rotomdex! It's...ah, it's a Rotom-possessed Pokédex that can talk to you. In the game, it can give you advice on where to go next based on who you talk to, and shows where you currently are, like a Town Map. It can also use the QR-scanning abilities of the Nintendo 3DS system to add Pokémon to your Pokédex, letting you know where they are.

There's also a few new characters revealed:
Player Characters:


Pokémon.com wrote:You will choose to be a hero or heroine in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, and you can name yourself whatever you'd like. The story begins right after your character has moved to the Alola region. No sooner have you arrived than your adventures begin to unfold, and you'll meet many people and Pokémon as you grow and learn.
Not too much different than usual. Though, funnily enough, this is the second character to have moved in to the region - the first is Brendan and May.
Professor Kukui:


Pokémon.com wrote:Professor Kukui is the Alola region's dependable Pokémon professor. He lives near your home and looks out for you. He's passionate about his research into Pokémon moves and has sometimes taken direct hits from Pokémon when there was something to be learned from it. Sporting a white lab coat slung casually over his bare torso, he shows off his own unique style.
He looks like a massive fucking dork I swear to whatever. Interesting to note is his specialty in researching Pokémon moves.
Hau:


Pokémon.com wrote:Hau is a Pokémon-loving young boy with a big appetite! He's the same age as your character. When you move to the Alola region, he makes friends with you right away. He has a real weakness for malasada, a famous treat in the Alola region, and he is always in search of malasada shops. He is a big-hearted boy who really loves Pokémon.
Malasada:
Dang, that does look good. I can't blame him. It's, of course, a Hawaiian treat, though it has origins in Portugal. And yeah, he's definitely the "rival" character.
Lillie:


Pokémon.com wrote:Lillie is a mysterious girl who assists the professor. This young girl is about the same age as your character, and she's working as Professor Kukui’s assistant for personal reasons. She's not fond of making Pokémon fight in battles, but she loves reading and has devoured many books. Lillie will play an important role in the story of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.
He might have to share screentime with this character, though, who is the only new character to actually show up - everyone else appeared in the previous trailer. There's some speculation that she's the Champion, but... eh, she's probably going to be more of a Bianca. (That is to say, she won't be the Champion. :U) I can't say I'm anticipating liking her attitude, however. Look at that expression.

The Pokédex is also split into four parts - presumably, one for each major island.

To top it off, have a picture of the Rotomdex!

Spoiler:

That's all for now. Until next time...

Spoiler:

dang look at the size of those islands

See ya!

Kitchen Appliances don't really compare well to a Pokédex.

Your local kitchen appliance doesn't have info on over 700 alien species in it? :V

In all seriousness, I think the Rotomdex might get annoying in the anime, but for the games it's just pure distilled awesomery.

Unless it holds your hand the whole way through the game. IIRC, the Japanese video showed that the Rotomdex can put a flag on your map to show where you have to go. I really hope the game doesn't end up being just a long string of flag following.

I think it would be great if you could ask Rotom to place a flag. A few times in Y I remember not knowing where I need to go because I hadn't played for a while, so being able to ask for a reminder would be nice. I hope that is how it is handled, instead of automatically placing a flag and demanding you go.

As long as it doesn't show up on the Fly map, I'm fine.

@Luma There's three lines of Steel/Psychic Pokémon - Bronzor's, Beldum's, and Jirachi. That isn't exactly widely used. :U


I feel like Jirachi and Beldum's line are rather popular, so that makes it seem like that's a more common type pairing than it really is. Plus, one of my mains in Pokemon Platinum was Bronzor, so that must be part of why the type pairing seems so common to me :U

You should be able to ask rotom where to go. That way those who want the flag can get it, a those who don't won't.

I don't really like rotom dex either
