Starters for Pokémon Sun and Moon announced

Posted May 11, 2016

We’ve finally had our first look at the official starters for PokémonSun and Moon:

Rowlet: The grass/ flying Grass Quill Pokémon

Rowlet can attack without making a sound! It flies silently through the skies, drawing near to its opponent without being noticed, and then lashing out with powerful kicks. It can also attack from a distance using the razor-sharp leaves that form part of its feathers.

Litten: The fire cat Pokémon

Logical but also passionate, Litten always remains coolheaded and doesn’t show its emotions on the surface.

Popplio: The water sea lion Pokémon

Popplio’s swimming speed is known to exceed 25 mph. It’s better at moving in the water than on land. Still, when it’s on land, it takes advantage of the elasticity of its balloons to perform acrobatic stunts and jumps.

The above biographies were released alongside a new trailer showing them off which can be found here. The trailer also provides a look into the new region Alola, a tropic beauty, as well as what appear to be the main legendaries of the titles.  The web has been buzzing with some incredibly mixed reviews thus far, what do you think?
