Game Freak’s immensely popular monster-catching franchise is set to kick off its seventh generation next month with the launch of Pokémon Sun & Moon on Nintendo 3DS. Japanese streaming site NicoNico recently held a special livestream event for the upcoming games, showing off over an hour of new gameplay footage from early in the game. The footage gives us a good look at some of the early locations in Alola, the new Pokémon Refresh feature, a variety of battles (including the new Battle Royal), and more.
