Here's what we've learned for sure so far:
-We know what the new starters look like, andthat they'll continue in the tradition of one each of Grass, Fire and Water type.
-The new region, called Isshu, is geographically distant from previous Pokemon regions.
-The main playable characters are older than in previous games.
Here's what we're pretty sure is true:
-The Grass type starter is named Tsutaaja and is classified as a Grass Snake Pokemon.
-The Fire type starter is named Pokabu and is classified as the Fire Pig Pokemon.
-The Water type starter is named Mijumaru and is classified as the Sea Otter Pokemon.
-As we saw in theRuler of Illusions: Zoroarkmovie trailer, Zoroarkcan transform into other Pokemon usinga new ability called Illusion. How this differs from Ditto's transform is still a mystery.
-Two new moves confirmed: Trickery, an attack that's calculated in some way basedon the opponent's stats, and Claw Sharpen, which raises the user's Attack and Accuracy (viaSerebii (opens in new tab)).
-Transferring over ashiny Entei, Suicune or Raikou from the Japanese Ruler of Illusions: Zoroark movie ticket preorders (opens in new tab)will trigger an event that allows you to capture a level 25 Zoroark.
What we want to know now:
-What are the second and third evolutions for the starters?
-What's that device on the wrists of the trainers? A new Poketch?A new superdevice that combines the PC and the Pokedex?
-When will we get an announcement for North America/Europe? Will we get a shiny legendary beasts giveaway outside of Japan?
Additional scan showing art of the new trainers and five new in-game screens can be found atPokeBeach (opens in new tab).
