With only three months remaining until Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon hit the market, the rumor mill is working at full capacity. The latest piece of info regarding the upcoming Nintendo 3DS game originates from an anonymous image board and is therefore in no way reliable, but it does seem like it could be legit. Namely, a certain poster has revealed what's allegedly the list of all of the Pokemon from the Alola region. More specifically, the post which you can see for yourself by following the link below lists 103 new Pokemon from Game Freak's latest two titles, which is about as much as the beloved Gold & Silver added to the franchise back in the day. For comparison, Pokemon X and Pokemon Y added around 70 new pocket monsters to the franchise in 2013.
If this list turns out to be legit, Pokemon Sun and Moon will feature the most evolution families out of any game in the franchise yet as it seems numerous Pokemon from the list have several different evolution forms. It's unlikely Nintendo will list all of the available Pokemon in Sun and Moon prior to the game's release but one can at least hope the Japanese publisher will soon confirm how many Pokemon are featured in its next two 3DS RPGs. Naturally, that confirmation may give some legitimacy to this rumor or dispel it in its entirety. As for when that could happen, Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon are launching on November 18th, so more info about the game should be released as soon as next month.
Whatever happens, there's no doubt that pocket monsters introduced by Pokemon Sun and Moon will eventually appear in Pokemon GO, Niantic Labs' latest mobile hit which incentivized tens of millions of people worldwide to go outside and enjoy some augmented reality (AR) gaming. While many are presuming Niantic will be adding new Pokemon to its Android game chronologically, it wouldn't be completely surprising if the Sun and Moon creatures are given priority in an attempt to advertise the portable game. After all, it seems like Pokemon GO is here to stay so the order in which new Pokemon are introduced to the game probably won't matter to most players.
