New Gen 1 Pokemon introduced

Nintendo introduced a new Gen 1 Pokemon to their upcoming RPG. The Alola Islands will have dark type Ratatta. Plot details reveal that Alolans introduced Yungoos to take care of the rising Ratatta population. To adapt to the threat, Rattata became nocturnal and changed into Alola Rattatas.

Pokemon Sun and Moon Z-Crystals

Z-rings are bracelets with Z-crystals. They respond to different Z-type attacks in the game and add a fourth dimension to the gameplay experience. So, for example, you use or are inflicted by a electrium Z attack, the corresponding Z crystal will vibrate on your Z-Ring bracelet. It’s an interesting addition to the ever-popular franchise.
