Good news for Pokémon fans out there. The latest trailer of much-anticipated Pokémon Sun and Moon reveals all-new three more monsters in the game's cast of 722. Trainers can choose from three types of Pokémon when the game hits Nintendo 3DS on Nov. 18. Now, here's what is currently known about Pokémon Sun and Moon release date, features and rumors on the web.

At the start of the game, players have to pick a starter Pokémon. The Pokemon Company gave descriptions on the game's starter class -- Rowlet, Litten and Popplio. It is important to pick the right type of monsters. We'll give the latest information about their abilities so that trainers are ready when the game arrives six months from now.

First, there's a fire cat monster called "Litten." This Pokemon is naturally everyone's favorite because it's a cat. It has also strong silent-type personality, just like an average feline. But unlike ordinary kittens, Litten is covered with flammable fur. Its opening moves are Blaze and Ember. Generally, the cat looks to be in the tradition of strong fire type Pokemons.

Trainers can also choose a water type Pokemon. "Popplio" is a bubbly little monster with clown-like nose. Its best feature is speed. It can swim at more than 25 miles-per-hour. The Sun and Moon's Hawaiian-esque setting will greatly help the Pokemon. As its first move, Popplio can produce a Water Gun to attack enemies.

Lastly, there's grass type Pokémon named "Rowlet." According to its official description, the owl can attack "without making a sound," giving it an ability to strike ignorant foes with killer kicks. It can also attack enemies from a distance using a razor-sharp leaves from its feathers.

Interestingly, the covers of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon feature an enormous lion and strange-looking bat. The Pokémon Company has not yet revealed any details about these mysterious monsters. However, it is highly likely that they are legendary Pokémons, as per report from Polygon.

We mentioned earlier that the game is situated in a Hawaii-like setting called Alola region. The game's environments are all rendered in 3D. By the looks of it, the map is larger than the past Pokémon games. In addition, the region has more diverse and dynamic camera angles.

The latest preview also shows the first real footage of the actual gameplay, which is doesn't look too far removed from the past games in the series. Ars Technica says the art style in the game does not changed that much.
