We got the first gameplay trailer for Pokemon Sun and Moon a couple of days ago where the game’s starters were revealed along with the two titular legendaries. The types for the final evolutions of the starters have been supposedly leaked out due to a blunder on the Official Japanese Pokemon website.
The website has biography pages listed for the three stars namely Rowlet, Litten and Popplio which also show off their types. In the trailer and information released so far we know that Rowlet is Grass/Flying, Litten is Fire and Popplio is Water. Like in previous games evolutions of Pokemon can add a second type to their existing ones.
The website has images showing types of the starter Pokemon uploaded in advanced which can be viewed by anyone right now. Check out the video below for the full inspection:
Ignoring the mistake made in the video above (pdwinnall messed up the order), according to the icons Rowlet will evolve into Grass/Ground, Litten will stay Fire and Popplio’s evolution will be Water/Fighting.
What do you think of the rumored typing for the Pokemon Sun and Moon Starter final evolutions? Personally, since I was going with Rowlet for my playthough, I would’ve liked Grass/Flying instead of Grass/Ground. Litten doesn’t have a second type which is a missed opportunity I think, Dark would’ve been great as a second type.
Pokemon Sun and Moon releases for the Nintendo 3DS on November 18.
