With Pokemon Sun and Moon only a few Days from releasing I thought it would be great for you guys to know that there are some ways to get special Pokemon for your game.
Pokemon Sun and Moon Special Demo:
If you have not already been informed, there is a Pokemon Sun and Moon special demo that has been available in the Nintendo eShop. Go download that demo and play through it. It will give you a taste of what the Alola Island looks like and what the game play feels like. In the beginning of the demo you will receive a mysterious letter, from an unknown sender gifting you a Pokemon. That Pokemon is Greninja.
This Greninja has a special ability called Battle Bond. When Greninja makes a Pokemon faint in battle it will activate Battle Bond and transform into Ash’s Greninja. When it turns into Ash’s Greninja, it’s speed will increases making it hard to see and pin down. Greninja also gains the ability to make giant water shurikens on its back and will be able to throw them in quick succession. Once you obtain the copy of the full game you will be able to Transfer Greninja to your full game and have him as part of your party.
You have until January 11:
The second Pokemon you can receive and start your game with is Munchlax. If you purchase the game before January 11 you will be able to receive a very special Munchlax. When you bring Munchlax into the game, he will be holding a Snorlium Z crystal. When his friendship gets high enough with you he evolves in to Pulverizing Snorlax. Snorlax with the power of his Z crystal will be able to perform a special Z move called Pulverizing Pancake. As far as I understand, Snorlax will have to know the move Giga Impact to preform his Z move, but I could be wrong.
Speaking of moves, Munchlax will come with two new moves he previously was never able to use. The first move is Hold back. With this move, Munchlax will be able to attack without knocking out a wild Pokemon. Leaving them with 1 HP and making it easier for you to catch wild Pokemon without the worry of knocking them out. Munchlax will also know the move Happy Hour. Happy Hour is also another move it couldn’t learn before. If you use this move during a Trainer battle, you will earn double the reward money for winning. So you will be “in the money” pretty early on in your adventure giving you a boost.
Also in Sun and Moon, you will have the ability to use a QR scanner. At some point, a QR code will be released for the Mystical Pokemon Magearna. You will scan the code and go to the antique store in Hau’oli City Shopping Mall. This is where you will receive Magarna and she will be able to become part of your team. This is an interesting line from the Sun and Moon site “Magearna will be a special ally that you can put to work on your behalf in the world of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.” Hmmm… intresting… Keep your eyes on the official website for more info on the QR code to obtain the mysterious Pokemon.
