Pikipek, Yungoos, Grubbin revealed

The official Pokémon YouTube channel began streaming a new trailer for Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon Nintendo 3DS games on Tuesday following Nintendo's E3 presentation on the gameplay. The video introduces the new battle royal feature and three new Pokémon: Pikipek, Yungoos, and Grubbin.

The games will debut in Japan and North America on November 18, followed by Europe on November 23. The three Starter Pokémon (pictured below) are: the Grass-type Rowlet (Mokuroh in Japan), the Fire-type Litten (Nyabby), and the Water-type Popplio (Ashimari).

The games' new Legendary Pokémon include Solgaleo and Lunala (pictured below):

The games will be available on the Nintendo 3DS worldwide in Japanese, English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Korean, and — unlike in the previous generation — Chinese (Traditional and Simplified). Players can choose their preferred language when they launch each game.

2016 marks the 20th anniversary of the Pokémon game franchise.

Update: Nintendo began streaming the game's gameplay demonstration during the Nintendo Treehouse livestream presentation, which includes a talk with GAME FREAK producer Shigeru Ōmori and director Junichi Masuda. (Gameplay begins at the 12:48 mark in the video).
