Version Exclusive Pokemon Revealed in Sun/Moon

Toa Smoke Monster



Today the latest Pokemon video was released, showing some of the Pokemon that will be exclusive to either Sun or Moon. I'm personally liked the Sun exclusive ones a little more, especially Rockruff's midday form of Lycanroc. It looks like a really cool Rock Type Pokemon. The midnight form of Lycanroc looks alright, but its color scheme just looks off to me.


As for the two other version exclusives, Passimian, a Sun Version exclusive, looks really cool. I can see it's ability being very useful in double and triple battles, though I don't know how useful it would be in single battles. on the other hand, Moon will be getting Oranguru. While it think its has a good pairing of types, I'm just doesn't look that interesting to me. But that is just my opinion on it.


The video also reveals that Pikachu and Eevee will get their own Z-Moves. Pikachu's looks like it will be really good, but I'm not sure how I feel about Eevee's. Sure, it is nice to get all its stats boosted up very quickly, but I don't know if that is a good use of a Z-Move. Especially since you can only use one Z-Move per battle. I did see someone post on Twitter that one could have Eevee use Baton Pass to transfer those stats to another Pokemon though, so I guess this Z-Move could have its uses if used right.


So these are my thoughts on the Version Exclusive Pokemon and Z-Moves revealed today. What do you all think of them?

It's still not enough to help me make a final decision about which game I want...

I also am kind of surprised that they described the different forms of Lycanroc as version exclusives, since I had thought that the original Japanese announcement merely explained it as evolving it during the day or night. If that were the case then it'd certainly be easier to get those forms in their respective games (what with the day/night cycle switched in Pokémon Moon), but wouldn't be impossible to get the opposite form if you evolved it during IRL night. Perhaps it's a case where it's only "exclusive" in the wild but you can still evolve either form yourself?

I like the Moon Lycanroc, and I'll probably still end up getting that game. But it looks nothing like a rock type.


Also, maybe I'm not up to date on my spoilers, but is that a new Eevee form?
