Pokemon Sun

The Pokemon Company has sent out some new assets for Pokemon Sun/Moon. We have a bunch of information pertaining to Team Skull, the latest creatures, and a couple of Alola Forms.

Continue on below for all of the details. We also have art for the latest round of Pokemon.

Team Skull
In the Alola region, a group of ruffians known as Team Skull causes a lot of trouble. They steal other people’s Pokémon, mess up the trial sites, and delight in all kinds of evil deeds.

Team Skull Boss: Guzma
Guzma is the boss of Team Skull, the one who holds these ruffians together. Guzma pours on the attacks, battling without mercy. He certainly does seem strong, but he claims that he “never could become captain.” He seems to have a bone to pick with Professor Kukui, as well.

With leaks abound last night, The Pokemon Company decided to publish the latest Pokemon Sun/Moon trailer early. We already saw the new video in Japanese, but here’s the English version:

Update 3: Several more images from the trailer leaked.

Update 2: Team Skull’s big boss shown.

Update: New trainer from Team Skull leaked, images added after the break. We’ve also removed the rumor tag as we’re nearly certain all of this is legitimate.

A lot of Pokemon news has surfaced this week thanks to CoroCoro. The Japanese magazine leaked out early like usual over the past few days, and gave us a glimpse at the latest creatures that will be featured in Sun/Moon.

That being said, the Pokemon Sun/Moon updates for the week aren’t over. To close out the week, we’ll be getting an official trailer which should show even more for the two games. At least some of the fun appears to have leaked early if some convincing new images are to go by. Head past the break for more.

Namakobushi has been revealed as the latest Pokemon in Sun/Moon, as shown in this month’s CoroCoro.

The creature is able to send its insides out from its mouth and use as a fist. Details about its type and classification are currently unknown.

Here’s another look at the latest CoroCoro scan:



Update (8/6): Z-Crystal 9 Pack now up for pre-order on Amazon here.

Update (8/4): Was out of stock for a bit on Amazon, but it’s back now. GameStop is also taking pre-orders for the “Z-Ring Crystals 3 Pack”.

Original (8/3): A whole bunch of Pokemon Sun/Moon information was unleashed earlier in the week. The latest update included details on new Pokemon, the island challenge, and Z-Moves.

Z-Moves are powerful attacks that can be executed once per battle when a Trainer and Pokemon’s wishes resonate with each other. They can be performed with the Z-Ring fitted on a Trainer’s arm, with Z-Crystals set into it. If a Pokemon holds the same type of Z-Crystal, the two will be able to resonate with one another.

The Pokemon Company is teaming up with Tomy to bring out a real-life version of the Z-Ring and Z-Crystals later this year. When a player using the Z-Move, the Z-Ring lights up, vibrates, and emits sounds to go along with what’s happening in-game.

Pre-orders for the Z-Ring (Set) are starting to live. It includes the Z-Ring, three Z-Crystals, and a 2-inch Pikachu figure. For those in the United States, you can place an order on Amazon here or GameStop here. In Europe, pre-orders are live on Amazon Germany here. We’ll keep you informed about other pre-order news.

Here are some new images and details from the Amazon product page:

As part of yesterday’s Pokemon Sun/Moon announcements, it was announced that a special real-life Z-Ring will be sold. When using a Z-Move, the Z-Ring lights up, vibrates, and emits sounds to go along with what’s happening in-game.

We now have a bit more information about Tomy’s plans for the Z-Ring in Japan. You’ll be able to collect 18 different crystals, all of which correspond to a different Z-move.

The Z-Ring will cost 2,600 yen and is packaged with one Z-Crystal. Z-Crystal sets have three each and are priced at 599 yen. A special bundle is also planned for 4,490 yen containing the Z-Ring and six Z-Crystals.


Over the past couple of months, concept art for what people thought could be the final starter evolutions in Pokemon Sun/Moon made the rounds online. It wasn’t clear at the time if the images were truly legitimate, but with today’s official news update, it very much seems possible. Head past the break for more.

Thanks to the official Pokemon Sun/Moon website, we have even more screenshots from the game. View some images of Poke Ride and island challenge below.


Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon just received a huge news blast today, but it won’t be much longer for the next update. It’s now confirmed that the next round of information is coming on August 11 / 12. That’s less than two weeks away!

When Pokemon Sun/Moon launch later this year, Tomy International will be bringing out a Z-Ring item. Players who use a Z-Move will see that their real-life Z-Ring lights up, vibrates, and emits sounds to go along with what’s happening in-game.
