    The Official Pokemon YouTube Channel has uploaded a new trailer, which shows off the middle evolutions for the game's starter Pokemon. Rowlet will evolve into Darktrix (Grass/Flying), Litten evolves into Torracat (Fire), and Popplio evolves into the Pokemon Brionne (Water). That's not the entirety of the trailer, though. Also shown off was a feature called Festival Plaza, which seems to be minigames related to online features. Lastly, there will be a special demo version of Pokemon Sun and Moon, where you will be given a Greninja that you can transfer into the final game when it releases. It gets the special transformation of the anime's Ash Greninja as well. The demo will be on the eShop on October 18th.

    Has any of the leaks about the evolutions got the middle stage evos right?
    If so, can someone provide a link for the full on evolutions of said leak?

    To me, all those evolutions look pretty good. I hope they don't screw up with the final ones.

    And one more thing: Ash-Greninja is overrated. Why does that thing have to appear everywhere?

    They look... fake? Right? Like I'm not questioning their legitimacy, but they look like fake pokemon.

    The mid evolutions look goofy for sure.
    Hopefully the final evolution (and mega evolution five games from now? xD) will look pretty cool.
    If I play this I think I'll just end up putting the starters aside and start from the ground up with something else.
    Maybe transfer an Eevee or something. :3

    Every new pokemon feels fake when they get revealed. But over time you accept them, and they look normal for you. Atleast thats how it is for me

    That's not really a valid defense.
