The Pokémon Company has today unveiled a ton of new Pokémon for their upcoming RPG, Pokémon Sun & Moon, but this time they’re a different spin on familiar faces.

A brand new trailer plus a handful of images have been revealed to show that the upcoming titles will offer some new forms of older-generation Pokémon such as Vulpix, Nintetails, Sandshrew, and Exeggutor.

There’s also a new Pokémon which looks a lot like Donald Trump, he’s called Gumshoos, and is the evolution of Yungoose, another new Pokémon unveiled for the game a few weeks back.

What’s probably the most interesting addition is the new “Alola Forms” which will tern old favourites into new versions of themselves. For example, there are new Ice versions of Vulpix, Ninetails, Sandshrew and Sandslash. Probably the best of them all however is Exeggutor:

Finally, the trailer also unveils a new super-powered Z-Move, which much like Mega Evolutions, can only be used once during battle. There’s a Z-Move for each elemental type, but, like with Mega Evolutions, you’ll need to be wearing the right Z-Crystal. Presumably that means you can only use Z-Moves for one element per battle, unless you can hot-swap crystals during this time.

The Pokémon Company has also revealed that a real-life Z-Ring which holds Z-Crystals will be released by Tomy which will light up the appropriate colour whenever a Z-Move in the game is used.

The trailer also reveals other information such as Captains and Kahunas which will periodically test trainers in trials which involve battling, finding items, or answering questions. Then, they’ll have to battle Totem Pokémon which can summon other Pokémon as support.
