Rowlet, Litten, Popplio from the Alola Region!

Alola Region 2Aloha, and welcome to the Alola region!

Please select your Starter Pokemon: you may choose from the Grass- and Flying-type Pokemon Rowlet, the Fire-type Litten, or the Water-type Popplio. Which will you choose? Hala is apparently the character who gives you one of the three Pokemon in Pokemon Sun and Moon.

You will be able to obtain all of these Pokemon on November 18th in both the United States and Japan and then on November 23rd in Europe.

As with Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, you will be able to change the color of your character’s skin. (As revealed in the Japanese trailer.) Some parts of the trailer show the character with slightly different clothing, so Trainer customization may be back.

RowletRowlet is the Grass Quill Pokemon. It is Grass/Flying, 1’00”, and 3.3 lbs.

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.

Its visual abilities are impressive. The darkness of night is no obstacle to Rowlet! It can twist its neck nearly 180° from front to back so it can see directly behind itself. It has a habit of turning its head in battle to face its Trainer and receive instructions.

The move Leafage attacks an opponent by striking it with leaves. Rowlet knows this move from the moment it becomes your partner!

LittenLitten is the Fire Cat Pokemon. It is Fire-type, 1’04”, and 9.5 lbs.

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

Litten can attack with flaming hairballs! Its fur is rich in oils and immensely flammable. Litten grooms itself by licking its fur, and then uses the collected fur as fuel for fireball attacks!

When the time comes for Litten to shed its old fur, it all burns up in a glorious blaze.

The move Ember attacks an opponent by firing a small flame at it. Litten knows this move from the moment it becomes your partner!

PopplioPopplio is the Sea Lion Pokemon. It is Water-type, 1’04”, and 16.5 lbs.

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. Popplio can snort out balloons made of water! Watch it spin water balloons into a playful battle strategy!

Both frivolous and hard-working, Popplio can easily get carried away—unleashing enough power in battle to make quite a spectacle! But Popplio’s determined spirit means it can usually be found practicing hard on its balloon skills.

The Water Gun move attacks an opponent by firing a jet of water. Popplio knows this move from the moment it becomes your partner!

The Legendary Pokemon were not officially named and no information was released about them. However, I get the feeling their names will be something similar to “Solgaleo” and “Lunaala.” ;)
