Ever since the original Japanese unveiling trailer for Pokémon Sun and Moon, there have been a couple of charming promotional videos featuring a young Japanese boy and his experiences settling down in a new home, seemingly Hawaii (playing into the inspiration for the Alola region). Now there's another extended advert with the young Trainer and his new school buddies.
This time around the focus is on a battle between two groups over a den, with a focus on working up strategies and strengthening your 'mon. It's nicely done and has some positive messages in the end - check it out below.
It's a nice piece of marketing, and hopefully The Pokémon Company will localise it in good time to more directly target fans in the West; all it needs is some translated text and some new gameplay screens.
The localised version has now been posted.
