The Pokemon Company and Nintendo have today released a whole new trailer for Pokemon Sun and Moon. The video debuts four new Pokemon from this generation and new information about it has also been shared.

All four have suitably Pokemon-like names and look great, even if they’re a little bit, how shall we say, crazy. This is Pokemon after all, though, and if we’re honest, we’re just glad it’s nothing to do with Pokemon Go!

Pokemon Sun and Moon lands on the Nintendo 3DS on November 18 and will no doubt sell by the truckload. Really, really big trucks. Pokemon games sell well all year round, but with Pokemon Go very much in the public consciousness, expect huge numbers. We’re sure Nintendo’s counting on it.

As for the four new Pokemon that we were talking about, their odd names and stranger appearances are in quite line with the Pokemon franchise, with one actually shaped like a sand castle. That’s new. All four are detailed below. Check it out!

Name: Crabrawler

Type: Fighting

Crabrawler is a Boxing Pokémon that really hates to lose. It can be found clinging to buildings with its powerful pincers that also pack a powerful punch, or gathering around trees in search of Berries, its favorite food.

Name: Stufful

Type: Normal/Fighting

Stufful may have a small body, but this Pokémon has extraordinary strength. Despite its cute, fluffy appearance, Stufful dislikes being touched and will flail its arms in protest. Stufful evolves into Bewear.

Name: Sandygast

Type: Ghost/Ground

Sandygast emerges when the grudges of fallen Pokémon soak into the sand after battle, and its tunnel-like mouth can suck the vitality from people and Pokémon.Sandygast also features a new Water Compaction Ability, never before seen in other Pokémon, where its Defense stat goes up by two if it’s hit with a Water-type move. Sandygast evolves into Palossand.

Name: Palossand

Type: Ghost/Ground

Palossand disguises itself as a sandcastle, with its shovel on top serving, it is believed, as a radar to search out prey. Unsuspecting small Pokémon are dragged into Palossand’s body through its sandy vortex so it can steal their life force.
