Among those newly announced Pokémon is:

Pikipek: A Normal/Flying type Woodpecker Pokémon.

Yungoos: A Normal type Loitering Pokémon.

Grubbin: A Bug type Larva Pokémon.

Magearna: A Steel/Fairy type Artificial Pokémon. Magearna is the newest Mythical Pokémon. It was also introduced with a new move called Fleur Cannon.

A new battle format called Battle Royal will also be introduced in the new games.This will allow four players to be divided in a four-way battle that allows each trainer to fight against each of the other three trainers. Prior to this new feature, Pokémon battles typically consisted of one trainer against another.

Both Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon are available for preorder at select online retailers. They will be released in North America this year on November 18, 2016.

Another Nintendo Treehouse stream will be live again tomorrow at 10 a.m.
