Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will arrive soon, being the next core iterations of the Pocket Monster franchise that debuted in 1996. Besides these games, Nintendo is also preparing two Pokémon-themed 3DS XL handhelds that will feature Pikachu, Lunala and Solgaleo creatures.
The two Nintendo 3DS units will be released in Japan on November 18 and they will be available in two variants of colors: the yellow model will feature the image of famous Pikachu, while the black model will have the images of the new legendaries creatures named Lunala and Solgaleo. Their prices will be 20,304 yen (around $191) and they will not be bundled with the upcoming Pokémon Sun and Moon, as Nintendo did with the previous Pokémon X and Y games.
Unfortunately, Nintendo has experienced a decline in sales because gamers prefer to play games on their smartphones and the developer is hoping to give 3DS the much-needed boost by releasing the Pokémon Sun and Moon-themed Nintendo 3DS units. If you haven’t seen the trailer for the upcoming Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon yet, we remind you that two new Zygarde Formes have been introduced: Complete Forme and 10 Percent Forme and in the teaser video, you’ll see Zygarde in battles, after being transformed. Here’s the trailer we’ve told you about:
The Pokémon Company said on its official website that the Pokémon Sun and Moon games will feature a QR scanner and thanks to this feature, gamers will catch Pokémon more easily, especially rare Pokémon. Moreover, this functionality will allow gamers to register Pokémon in their Pokédexes, but more information about the feature will be revealed in the near future.
Recently, The Pokémon Company carried out a poll and asked Japanese fans what’s their favorite Pokémon and most of them answered Greninja, not Pikachu. In total, there are 721 Pokémon and Pikachu used to be gamers’ favorite creature because of its adorable aspect.
