The seventh generation (Japanese: 第七世代 seventh generation) of Pokémon games is the seventh installment of the Pokémon video game series starting with Pokémon Sun and Moon and continuing with Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. Like Generation VI, the games of the seventh generation are presented on the Nintendo 3DS; it is the last generation on that console.[1]

History

The seventh generation of Pokémon was announced with the reveal of Pokémon Sun and Moon on February 27, 2016, the Pokémon 20th Anniversary. These games were released worldwide on November 18, 2016, except in Europe where they were released on November 23, 2016.

The second pair of games in this generation, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, were revealed in a Pokémon Direct held on June 6, 2017. The games will once again take place in Alola, but with a new story and will include Pokémon that cannot be found in Sun and Moon. The games are set to be released worldwide on November 17, 2017.

The Generation VII games are not isolated from previous iterations. Pokémon Sun and Moon and Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon can communicate with the application Pokémon Bank, which can also communicate with the Generation VI games. Additionally, the Generation V games and the Virtual Console releases of the Generation I and II games can send Pokémon to Pokémon Bank through Poké Transporter. Through Pokémon Bank, Poké Transporter, Poké Transfer, and Pal Park, Pokémon from any generation can be transferred to Generation VII.

Region

Alola

Alola

Main article: Alola

The Alola region was introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. This island region is made up of four main islands and one artificial island.

Starter Pokémon

The starters of the seventh generation follow the traditional Grass/Fire/Water trio setup. At the beginning of the game, the player must choose between the Grass and Flying-type Rowlet, the Fire-type Litten and the Water-type Popplio.

Trial Captains and Totem Pokémon

In Sun and Moon, there are seven Trial Captains and eight Totem Pokémon, Pokémon which are bigger than the rest of their species and have "auras" that increase one of their stats at the beginning of battle. Upon a Totem Pokémon's defeat, the player will get the corresponding Z-Crystal of the same type of the trial.

In Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, many of the trials, with the exception of the first, are altered in some way. In addition, the final Trial Captain, Mina has a trial for the player to complete.
