Pokemon Sun & Moon Trailer Shows Off Starter Z-Moves

See the three starter Z-moves in action.

With less than a week to go until the release of Pokemon Sun and Moon, The Pokemon Company has released a new trailer showing the special Z-moves that will be available to the three starter Pokemon players will be able to pick from.

When Pokemon Sun and Moon’s three starters, Litten, Rowlett, and Popplio, reach their respective final evolved forms, Inceneroar, Decidueye, and Primarina, they’ll be able to unleash a powerful Z-move attack as long as the player has found the appropriate Z-move item. As you can see in the above trailer, the Z-moves are called “Sinister Arrow Raid” (for Decidueye), “Malicious Moonsault” (for Inceneroar), and “Oceanic Operetta” (for Primarina).

The video also shows off the new Ultra Beasts UB-03 Lightning and UB-05 Gluttony, the Alola forms for Diglett and Dugtrio, and more. Pokemon Sun and Moon are set to launch this coming Friday, November 18th.
