New Pokemon Sun/Moon Trailer Turns Exeggutor Into a Giraffe-Necked Monster
It already looked like a palm or coconut tree, so why not.
Among Sun/Moon's new features are Alola Forms, which provide a new look and type for existing Pokemon. (Alola is the game's new region.) Most striking of these is Exeggutor's--the formerly plump coconut tree-looking creature has grown a giraffe-sized neck, and judging by some of its faces, it's psyched about that.
It's also now a Grass/Dragon-type, as opposed to a Grass/Psychic-type as in the past. Other Alola Forms shown off include Vulpix (Ice), Ninetales (Ice/Fairy), Sandshrew (Ice/Steel), and Sandslash (Ice/Steel)
The video goes on to provide a look at some other new Pokemon, such as Minior, a floating rock that can shed its outer shell, and Gumshoos, which sports a Donald Trump-esque hairdo. The many styles of Oricorio are also shown, including one that makes it look like a cheerleader (appropriately called the Pom-Pom style). Each of Alola's different islands has a different style that calls it home.
Later in the video we see Mudbray, a Ground type, and two new Grass types: Fomantis and its evolved form, Lurantis. The latter brings with it a new move, Solar Blade.
Other new features on display are the ability to ride Pokemon and something called Z-Moves, which are described as a new way to attack. Each type has its own spectacular-looking Z-Move, which can only be used once per battle.
Pokemon Sun and Moon are set for release on November 18 on 3DS.
