3DS Nintendo Pokemon

New Z-Move Details And New Pokémon Announced For Pokémon Sun & Moon

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced new information for the latest games in the Pokémon franchise, Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, available in North America on November 18 exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.

The following new Pokémon were officially revealed:

Alolan Diglett

Type: Ground–Steel

The Mole Pokémon Alolan Diglett live near volcanic areas, so they have few places to hide themselves away. It’s said they developed the hairlike metallic whiskers which grow from the top of their heads as a survival mechanism for the hostile volcanic environment. Their whiskers enable them to sense surrounding areas without exposing their face above ground. Alolan Diglett can have the Tangling Hair Ability, which is a new Ability that no other Pokémon has previously had. With the Tangling Hair Ability, opponents that hit this Pokémon with a move that makes direct contact will have their speed lowered by 1.

Alolan Dugtrio

Type: Ground–Steel
Alolan Dugtrio is the evolved form of Alolan Diglett. Alolan Dugtrio’s whiskers grow throughout its life at a very slow rate, shining with a brilliance akin to that of golden hair. In the Alola region, this Pokémon is revered as an incarnation of the god of the land, and it’s treated with great importance. Removing any of this Pokémon’s whiskers is strictly prohibited. There is a superstitious belief that many Alolan Dugtrio come out of their burrows on a day when a volcano will erupt.

Also revealed were the following new Ultra Beasts:

UB-05 Glutton

This beast has an astounding appetite, and it will completely devour anything in front of its eyes. It’s said that it devours not only objects, but the ground, rivers, and even the seas. There is a belief that it converts the abnormal amount it eats entirely into energy to sustain itself, leaving no waste product behind. Whether this is true or not is a mystery.

UB-03 Lighting

Another of the Ultra Beasts is known as UB-03 Lighting. More will be revealed during the players’ adventures around the Alola region.

The image of one additional Pokémon was also revealed, but players will have to pick up the games when they launch on November 18 to find out more about this mysterious Pokémon!

Each of the three Pokémon that you can choose as your first partner during your adventure have an exclusive Z-Move that they can use only after they fully evolve. These moves are:

Z-Move: Sinister Arrow Raid

Pokémon: Decidueye
Decidueye slices through the air together with a hail of arrow quills, crashing into the target before dealing the final blow with its arrows.

Z-Move: Malicious Moonsault

Pokémon: Incineroar

With flames spouting from its flame belt, Incineroar leaps high into the sky and dives straight down onto its target.

Z-Move: Oceanic Operetta

Pokémon: Primarina
Primarina manipulates a huge balloon using its voice, then causes it to explode over its target’s head, dealing a lot of damage.

Z-Moves are special moves that a Pokémon can use when it’s holding a Z-Crystal that corresponds to its move’s type. Their effects vary greatly depending on whether they’re based on attack moves or status moves. Z-Moves based on attack moves have far greater power than standard moves, but how powerful they will be seems to depend on the power of the original move that a Z-Move is based on. Since Z-Moves are full-powered attacks, they also seem to be impossible to fully ward off with moves like Protect and Detect—they still do some damage. When you use your Z-Power based on a status move, it will be powered up with additional effects. These effects come in many varieties, including raising your own Pokémon’s stats, healing the next Pokémon to switch in and more!

You can even start your adventure early with the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon Special Demo Version—available now for download from Nintendo eShop at no charge. Players can transfer their Greninja from the demo version to their full game version of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon when it launches later this month.


  1. This has fucking hentai written all over it! Sonic is the only game you moerans need not modern but classic Sonic

    1. I’m pretty sure the only really useful thing you get from the demo is ash-greninja, and there might be other ways to get that, so you probably aren’t missing out on much.

    2. I played through and it’s definitely not the beginning of the game, but something standalone. Play it to get ash greninja and a few items transferred to your full game!

  2. This Modern Hentai shit is why we dont have Games like sonic and i mean Classic Sonic not the modern Shit we got now like Metroid , and other shitty hentai games.

  3. I’m a gaming expert you modern Moeran Pokemon is fucking hentai you fagget!

    Real games are Classic Sonic and Mario use your fucking brains

  4. I played the demo completly and I saw alolan Dugtrio with the help of a new item that will probably appear in the full game. I also use a Z-move with the Pokemon everybody knows. The other things you can get to transfer to the full game is to help you get a head start but is by talking to people on specific days so is diferent from the demo of Pokemon Ruby & Saphire of 3DS.

  5. Ya know what! No! No more of this shit! I’m done with these articles! It’s starting to look more & more like Hyrule Warriors where every fucking character & mode was revealed before the fucking game was even out! I’M OUT!!!

    1. The Japanese guy who started the whole concept said that it was originally because Japan restricted what you could and could not publicly display, even when it came to mature content, so the tentacles were a way to circumvent the other body part we know about, which was banned from media over there.
