The Sun And Moon Starter Pokemon Have Evolved


Nintendo has been releasing new Pokemon species at a steady clip, and we’ve got a good crop this week. Presenting the long-awaited evolved forms of the three Pokes you start out with: Rowlet, Litten and Popplio. Now they’re Dartrix, Torracat and Brionne!


Type: Grass-Flying
The Blade Quill Pokémon Dartrix evolves from Rowlet. Dartrix attacks by throwing its knife-edged feathers, and it possesses extremely sharp senses. This Pokémon can detect opponents behind it and can throw feathers to strike them without even seeing them. This Pokémon cares a great deal about its appearance, grooming its feathers in every spare moment it has.


Type: Fire
The Fire Cat Pokémon Torracat evolves from Litten. This Pokémon produces flames for its attacks from a bell-like sac attached at the base of its throat. Torracat has a great love for battle and will attack relentlessly. Its mane can sense what is going on around it, even in the dark, and is able to detect the presence of hidden enemies.


Type: Water
The Pop Star Pokémon Brionne evolves from Popplio. Brionne can dance in perfect time with others and is always cheery and positive. A very hard worker, Brionne learns dances by imitating other members of its colony and can sometimes even learn dances from humans. As this Pokémon dances, it creates balloons and slaps them into its target, making them explode and deal damage to its opponents.

With the arrival of these three comes more news: a demo version of Pokemon Sun and Moon will be available October 18, so you’ll get to mess with it one solid month before the game itself. Your starter Pokemon in the demo won’t be any of the guys we’ve discussed, but an Alolan-unique version of Greninja called Ash-Greninja. Play the demo and Ash-Greninja will be yours in the actual game!

Check out the video below for more surprises, including an online social hub called Festival Plaza and a radically revamped take on Pokemon PC storage boxes. Pokemon Sun and Moon releases November 18 for 3DS.
