Last week, a screenshot started making the rounds on social media which introduced the 8 new evolutions to come in Pokémon Sun and Moon that would be available for players to obtain. Now, they’ve gone viral and Tencent Tech has found out what the image could mean. The pokemon evolution story goes like this: Pokémon X and Y were released in 2013 while Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will be released in November of this year. With a mere two years between releases, these new evolutions are already set to debut very soon.
Is there any proof that this is true?
The only proof we have of these evolutions is the picture shown above. We know it’s legitimate because it was posted to 4Chan, a popular image board website, by an anonymous user. Pokémon Sun and Moon have been out for roughly 2 months now, so they’ll be getting new pokemon in time for Halloween!
What will these new evolutions be based on?
Since each of the evolutions you see above can only evolve from one previous pokemon, at least two of them (the ones in the middle) appear to be based on existing creatures in the game. Japanese players have already reported seeing these new evolutions in-game Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon.
Are there any names for these new Pokemon?
The image only shows the pokemon themselves and not their names. However, a Redditor did manage to spell out the code from the leaked picture. From that, it seems that Honedge’s evolution is called Doublade, Solosis’ evolution is called Reuniclus, and its evolution is called Genesect. As for the last three, we’ll have to wait and see.
How much will they cost?
Pokémon Sun and new eevee evolutions 2021 are both $60 per game, but Nintendo has already been known to sell multiple versions of the same game at a discount if players don’t want to pay full price. To give you an idea of how much it costs, you can buy Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Sun on Amazon for roughly $59.99.The price should go down once Halloween gets closer, but don’t expect it to be any cheaper than that.
When will we know more about these evolutions?
We’ll probably hear more about these new pokemon once Halloween approaches (which isn’t far away). The leak from the previous article suggests that these evolutions are going to be available for players to unlock on the game’s online Pokémon Bank account. There was a Pokémon Bank update released this past week which added a new “all-new Global-Link system” to the game. This may be that, but it also could be a clever way of introducing players to these evolutions since they’ll have them under their control long before they’re available in-game.
Will the new Pokemon Sun and Moon feature act as clues?
They may be, but so far no one has spotted anything specific in the game that hints at future evolutions. Assuming they’re available to players on their Global-Link accounts, that means that you won’t be able to see them until you actually catch them. The same goes for any other monsters in the game. You can only have a maximum of eight at once and each one will cost you anywhere between $50 (for Genesect) and $250 (for Honedge).
