Meet the 3 New Starter Pokemon of Sun and Moon

Nintendo hit us with quite a bit of new information about Pokemon Sun and Moon today. New starters were revealed and a release date of November 18th, was given.

The water starter is Popplio, a Sea Lion Pokemon. Rowlet is the owl Pokemon. He is a grass flying type. Last, but not least, is Litten. A flaming hairball spitting fire type cat Pokemon. All 3 starter Pokemon are pictured in the image below.

The new region of Pokemon Sun and Moon is called Alola and is Hawaiian inspired.

Also, shown off today is the box art of both games featuring the Sun and Moon legendaries on the front. The Sun cover features a lion Pokemon, while the Moon box art features a bat looking Pokemon. You can get a better look at those two in the trailer at the top of the page.

Initial response from Pokemon fans seem to favor Litten the most, Rowlet second, and Popplio dead last. I personally agree with the masses. I have started every Pokemon game with a water starter and think Popplio is the worst looking one, but as the day has gone by he is starting to grow on me. I will probably still pick him to keep the water starter streak alive.

What’s you take on the new Pokemon starters? Do you love them or hate them? SOund off in the comment section.

Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse Will Be Released This Summer

Known as SMT IV: Final in Japan, the game gets a name change for its North American audience. Atlus does not have a specific date other than just Summer 2016. I would bet that it will come out in July since SMT IV came out in July back in 2013.

SMT: Apocalypse takes place in the same universe as 2013’s SMT IV. Apocalypse looks to ditch the samurai setting for a more apocalyptic setting, hence the name of the game. The main character looks like an anime version of a Fallout character. Check out the announcement teaser trailer below.
