A couple of days ago the Pokemon Company released a trailer for the three starters for Pokemon Sun and Moon. I got excited when I watched the trailer. It looks like the setting will be based on Hawaii, which is a popular vacation spot for Japanese folks – and others of course. Hawaii also has a lot of mythology and a deep culture and it will be interesting to see what the developers bring to the game.
Below is some information from the Pokemon website about each of the starters. I’ll probably go with Popplio because I always pick water, but I’ll catch and play all three evantually.
CATEGORY Grass Quill Pokémon
WEIGHT 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.
CATEGORY Fire Cat Pokémon
WEIGHT 9.5 lbs.
Logical but also passionate, Litten always remains coolheaded and doesn’t show its emotions on the surface.
CATEGORY Sea Lion Pokémon
WEIGHT 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.
