Pokkén Tournament (Arcade)
Today, Bandai-Namco announced that yet another Battle Pokémon for Pokkén Tournament would be revealed on November 1st, during a livestream on NicoNico. Just like last time, no hint was given.
Pokémon Sun and Moon
Thanks to Tatsumi Kimishima, we now that the special demo for Pokémon Sun and Moon has been downloaded over 3.5 million times: the fastest start ever for a Nintendo 3DS demo. He also talked about pre-orders, but didn’t reveal that Pokémon Sun and Moon itself was the most pre-sold game ever in Nintendo’s history… a pretty nice record!
Talking of Pokémon Sun and Moon, The Pokémon Company uploaded the third episode of the Train On video series. Once again, it features some new gameplay footage for the game, and reveals some additional tidbits:
- Exeggcute evolves into Alolan Exeggutor by using a Leaf Stone;
- Breakneck Blitz is the English name of the Normal-type Z Move;
- the Rock-type Z Move
Here’s the video:
