Pokemon Sun/Moon Legendaries Revealed

   Following the announcement of Pokemon Sun and Moon's starter Pokemon, The Pokemon Company today revealed the Legendary creatures that will appear in the game. These powerful Pokemon are called Solgaleo and Lunala, and The Pokemon Company teased today that they will play a "crucial role" in the story. Solgaleo's signature move is called Sunsteel Strike, and it's an attack that "charges at an opponent with the force of a meteor." As for Lunala, its signature Moongest Beam attack shoots out an "ominous beam of light."

You can see Solgaleo and Lunala in action in the gameplay video below. Additionally, full descriptions for both are available at the bottom of this post.

The Pokemon Company also shared some further general details about Pokemon Sun and Moon today. The game is set in the Alola region, which "centers around four tropical islands and one artificial island."

The story picks up after the hero moves to the region. You can play as a male or female, while you can also name your character and customize its appearance.

"Professor Kukui is the Alola region's Pokemon professor. The professor is passionate about his research into Pokemon moves and has sometimes taken direct hits from Pokemon if there was something to be learned from it," reads a line from the description. "Sporting a white lab coat, Professor Kukui has his own unique style."
