Pokemon Sun and Moon are only a little over a week from release, but many players appear to already have leaked access to the latest games in the Pokemon franchise.
With a little over a week left until the release of Pokemon Sun and Moon, retail copies of the upcoming games have begun to leak, leaving the Internet a place full of spoilers for all Pokemon fans.
Although the titles won't be hitting stores until November 18, it seems that several retail copies of the games have already been released to the public, allowing a handful of players to already experience what Pokemon Sun and Moon has to offer.
Obviously, there's now a huge amount of spoilers online so players that don't want to know anything about the games until they play for themselvees should take care not to visit any Pokemon-related sites for at least the immediate future. Before we go any further, it's best to point out that the remainder of this article will contain minor spoilers for the games, but we will stay away from any previously unrevealed content, such as new story details.
A YouTuber by the name of Kaphotics, who recently put together a series of Pokemon Sun and Moon datamining videos, has released new content regarding the latest games in the Pokemon franchise. The videos detail all sorts of new information, including all the stats and movesets of the new starters and their evolutions.
There are also videos regarding new Pokemon, the legendary creatures, Ultra Beasts, and the special Alola forms that certain creatures will be showing off. The returning legendary Pokemon Zygarde is also present in the videos, with information about each of its new transformations.
For the full details, you can visit the game's subreddit where the highly-anticipated titles are being discussed in heavy detail. We'd certainly suggest staying away from the comment sections if your aim is not to be spoiled, however. Many players that have gotten themselves an early copy are now finished with the games, meaning that every detail of the story is probably now available online somewhere at this point.
In other Pokemon news, Pokemon Sun and Moon are shaping up to be the largest titles that the franchise has released for several years, judging by their already record-breaking amounts of pre-orders. The games seem to be bringing in all sorts of users, both new and returning, to the franchise and the demo version has already racked up a staggering 3.5 million downloads as people begin to get excited by the lead up to Pokemon Sun and Moon's release.
Pokemon Sun and Moon are set to launch on November 18, 2016 for Nintendo 2DS and 3DS.
