The Internet Reacts To Pokémon Sun And Moon’s Starters

The Pokémon hype train has officially left the station, and the passengers are definitely freaking out in excitement right now.

Last night, the first real Pokémon Sun and Moon gameplay trailer hit the web. There was a lot of new information hiding in that footage, from the Hawaiian-inspired locale, to some of the broader customisation options. But more importantly, the trailer showcased the new starters that will join us on our badge-collecting adventure. And judging by what people are saying online, the internet is in LOVE with Rowlet, Litten and Popplio.

Here are some of the best jokes, observations and creations surrounding the new Pokémon Sun and Moon trailers.

Twitter had some hilarious things to say about the new starters:

What impresses me the most about all of this, however, is the incredible speed at which Pokémon fans created fan art for the new starters. Seriously: the trailer had only been online for minutes before I saw someone sketch out the new monsters.

Hell, someone is already turning the starters into anime girls. The Pokémon fandom is ridiculous!

YouTubers actually recorded themselves getting excited (sound warning!)

My favourite reaction out of all of these things are the people who noticed the female trainer’s weird-arse hat, though:

Never change, internet. Never change.

  • Nice roundup! Missed a few of those details too. I’m troubled though, I always go water, but both the fire and grass starters are so cool!

    Unrelated note: does the Kaepora Gaebora theme immediately start playing in anyone else’s heads when you see an image of him? Even before I realised who it was the song was playing in my head. (This one: https://youtu.be/zxsh62cJs6Q)

  • The new starters are horrible. Some of the fan art is nice, but… I’ll evolve them and get early evolutions for my living dex and them put them in the vault forever
