Pokemon Sun & Moon Demo Reveals Pokedex


Recommended Posts

The demo for Pokemon Sun & Moon was added to the eShop today. Players get Greninja, much like they got Glalie in the OmegaRuby/AlphaSapphire demo, which can be transferred over to the main game once it is released. Greninja can also be transformed into Ash Greninja, the Alola-specific form.


However, the biggest surprise is that the demo has pretty much the entire games' code in it, which allowed users to see all the sprites, items, information on new Pokemon and abilities, etc. Apparently there are spoilers in the videos below, so if you don't want spoilers don't watch them. Below the videos is a link to all the sprites and their shinies, and some examples of previous-gen Pokemon in their new forms.

It was not available in X/Y, only in the anime. By the game standards, it's the Alola form. By the Pokemon Universe and canon standards, its a Kalos form

No, not even game wise would it be considered that. It's not the equivalent to Mega Mewtwo who is Kalos specific, Electrivire who is Sinnoh specific, Pichu who is Johto specific, so fourth. Ahola was never stated to be AG's origin region or form, in any media. Its just a matter of an event that was inaccessible in the Kalos games, pretty much like not being able to catch Arceus in Sinnoh despite being his home place and Zygarde complete form. Just because WE didnt have access to them in their home place doesnt make their debut playable models in another game their "that" region form or home. It is especially wrong to say "Ahola form" as that implies AG is moreso an alternate base form Greninja and due to Ahola's influence like ice-Vulpix than Mega-like evolution. So by all canons, it's Kalos specific especially given this separate from the main game universe demo is suppose to be connected to the anime.

Ash-Greninja has powered up thanks to the strength of its bonds with Ash. This is the form Greninja takes when it has gained new power due to the miraculous occurrence known as the bond phenomenon. This can be brought on by the bonds between people and Pokémon. It seems that it has only been known to have occurred once—several hundred years ago.

Ash-Greninja's leg strength has been enhanced compared to an ordinary Greninja, making it difficult to see because of the speed at which it can move. It takes its enemies out in a flash! It becomes able to make giant Water Shurikens on its back, and it can throw them in rapid succession.

Greninja that can become Ash-Greninja have an Ability that no Pokémon has ever had before—Battle Bond. The Battle Bond Ability triggers this Pokémon’s form change to Ash-Greninja after it causes an opponent’s Pokémon to faint. When the battle ends, the Pokémon returns to its original Greninja form. This form is only for battles where it needs to break the limits!


All of this is referencing the anime - Pokemon XY&Z - which took place in Kalos, directly. There's also a wide misconception going on right now in regards to AG, with ignorant controversy regarding its name and other things. Simply put, AG is a giveaway Pokemon from an anime character. People are misunderstanding the concept that AG is meant as a special present rather than an actual mechanic built around its formation. There's a reason why it has no relation to the story, or focus (on its transformation mechanic), because its mechanic will not be a separate feature in S&M (well maybe it will in the future or later on in the game, but the matter with AG is that the purpose is to give away AG NOT give us a halfed ass Bond-like mechanic).


So this V 

Greninja can also be transformed into Ash Greninja, the Alola-specific form.



is objectively and technically false.
