Pokémon Sun and Moon are getting a special demo tomorrow morning—at least, they are in North America and Europe. Gamers in Australia and Japan have already gotten their hands on it, and some have even completed the demo, allowing them to discover a brand new trailer for the game which shows off some new faces. Additionally, some players have found a new, previously unannounced Alolan form Pokémon that’s hidden in the demo, just waiting for your Poké Finder to find it!

The trailer at the end of the demo has been uploaded by fans (you can watch it above), revealing brief glimpses at several brand new characters, which many people are suspecting to be new Trial Captains. The girl with Mudsdale could very easily be the Earth-Type Captain, the man with Pelipper could be a Flying-Type specialist, and the area with the second new girl just screams Ghost- or Dark-Type to me. Hopefully official word on these three isn’t too far off, perhaps in the next round of
Sun and Moon information!

Additionally, a new Alolan Form has been revealed via the demo, this one being for Dugtrio! It’s…a bit of an odd looking form, as it appears that the three-headed burrower has somehow managed to grow three full heads of hair in this new tropical setting. I am
definitely looking forward to seeing how The Pokémon Company justifies this design decision. In the meantime, you can check it out for yourself in the gallery below, and you can also watch this video one fan uploaded of it.

What do you think of all this new info coming out from the demo? Do you think there are more secrets waiting to be uncovered in it? Give us your thoughts in the comments!

Our Verdict


Tyler Meehan
Tyler is verbose. He apologizes for that. Tyler "Alpha" Meehan's first experiences with gaming came from his cousins' NES and the Mario games that went with it. They were fun, but merely brief distractions while on the road (yes, they had an NES in their car. It was awesome, and he was jealous). Still, nothing compared to his Star Wars books. OR SO HE THOUGHT. His love of gaming truly began when he and a friend came together to beat the Nintendo 64's Mission: Impossible, a challenge so intense that Tyler bought his own console to facilitate its defeat. Upon being introduced to Ocarina of Time (an introduction that included, among other spoilers, the freakin' final boss fight. GEEZ, PHILIP), his lot in life as a Nintendo fanboy was sealed in stone. His ability to recall absolutely useless video game information served him well during the Pokémon craze, and helped him aid numerous friends in their own endeavors to defeat games like Majora's Mask and Kingdom Hearts. Those were good days. Good days... The Zelda series soon became his primary obsession fascination, but additionally he was soon introduced to text-based RPGs by one of his schoolmates. Discovering that he had a knack for the English language and a strong love of telling stories, he started putting effort into writing his own storylines. That all got put onto the backburner, though, when he discovered the Zelda online community, particularly The Desert Colossus's Hyrule Adventures 2, an online text RPG based in the Zelda world. He joined under the pseudonym of "Alpha" and soon became one of their lead writers, going so far as to join the moderator staff and, in a year's time, become the head administrator of the RPG. During this time, Twilight Princess was released, and he joined several other TDCers in posting their thoughts on the game - his "Twilight Impression Posts" lasted for several months and were well received by the community. Staying on even after the webmaster was forced to retire, he continued to provide occasional news posts and articles for the site, until it became clear that the site was dying. He turned his focus back to Hyrule Adventures 2 and his college studies, until the latter forced him to stop work on the former. Tyler graduated a few years ago from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a Bachelors in Computer Science, and now serves as a software engineer for a rather large company that he doesn't feel like telling you all about (he's a jerk like that sometimes). His love of gaming and writing still strong, he joined the Zelda Informer staff in early 2013 to write a walkthrough for The Wind Waker, but later began using his English skills to become ZI and Gamnesia's first dedicated Copy Editor. When not trying to get Brian to shut up in Gamnesia's group chat, he spends his time writing Zelda fanfiction, planning some original fantasy stories that he may or may not try to publish some day, and playing games on his Wii, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo 3DS. He intends to get a WiiU sooner or later, probably around when Pikmin 3 comes out, but has little interest in the other consoles currently. Also, he can't stand writing bios in first-person. Talking about yourself like that is just...weird.
