As part of today’s Nintendo Direct, some new information was surfaced about Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon.
First off, Alolan Rattata was announced as a Dark/Normal-type. In order to avoid Yungoos, Rattata fled to urban areas and adopted a nocturnal lifestyle, leading to this changed form.
In addition, those who purchase Sun and Moon can receive a special event Munchlax until January 11, 2017, which comes with the Snorlium-Z, an item that Snorlax can hold when he has evolved to use its exclusive Z-Move, Pulverizing Pancake. This confirms that Z-Stones will not just be type-specific, as many have rumored, but also Pokemon specific. It was also confirmed that Alolan Raichu can use its exclusive Stoked Sparksurfer Z-Move.
The next news dump for Pokemon Sun and Moon is set to take place on Tuesday, September 6th. Until then, stay tuned to Pika News Network for the latest rumors, speculation, and news.
