Pokemon Sun And Moon: Release Date, New Pokemons And More

"Pokemon Sun and Moon" is all set to release in November, and the rumor mills have been too excited about the game.

Those who purchase the game before January 11, 2017 and connect to the internet will be able to collect a Munchlax carrying the special Snorlium Z item. Players are to evolve that Munchlax and have it hold the Snorlium Z to access Snorlax's Signature Z move.

During today's Nintendo Direct presentation, an early purchase bonus for Pokemon Sun and Moon was announced. When evolved into Snorlax, a special Z-Move that can not be used by any other Pokemon, Pulverizing Pancake, will be available for that Snorlax thanks to the item.

In addition to Munchlax, the Alolan variant of Rattata has also been revealed. It's called "Pulverizing Pancake".

Alolan Rattata

This Munchlax also knows two moves it can't usually learn: Hold Back and Happy Hour. These two moves can not be normally learned by Munchlax, and will only be available as part of the early purchase bonus. While likely, it has not been confirmed that the evolved form of Rattata, Raticate will also be Dark/Normal. Hold Back will weaken an opponent Pokemon down to 1 HP, but won't cause it to faint, making it flawless to capture wild Pokemon. When this move is used during a Trainer battle, the player will receive twice as much prize money after the battle. While Rattata normally has purple fur, the Alolan Rattata has a smoky grey coat.

They are nocturnal and live in nests of several dozen. They pay no attention to foods that aren't fresh.

Finally, a New Nintendo 3DS XL Solgaleo and Lunala Limited Edition will be released on November 18 while a new 2DS bundle with Sun or Moon will launch on November 23.
