Welcome to Alola

Pada pekan ke-dua bulan Mei yang lalu, The Pokémon Company mengumumkan tanggal peluncuran Pokémon Sun & Moon. Tak lama setelah tanggal peluncuran diumumkan, kami pun mengadakan polling untuk menentukan starter Pokémon yang menjadi favorit Trainer di Indonesia.
Kali ini, The Pokémon Company memberikan informasi terbaru mengenai Pokémon Sun & Moon. Apa saja informasi yang disampaikan pada pukul 19.00 WIB tadi? Mari kita simak.



Akhirnya, nama Legendary Pokémon terungkap, Solgaleo dan Lunala! Nama ini sesuai dengan bocoran pada bulan April yang lalu.

Solgaleo memiliki ability Full Metal Body yang membuatnya kebal dari efek move dan ability lawan yang dapat mengurangi stats. Solgaleo memiliki kombinasi tipe Psychic/Steel dan signature move Sunstel Strike

Since ancient times, Solgaleo has been honored as an emissary of the sun. It is referred to with reverence as “the beast that devours the sun.” Solgaleo’s body holds a vast amount of energy, and it shines with light when it’s active. It has a flowing mane with a remarkable resemblance to the sun. Its signature move is Sunsteel Strike, an attack that charges at an opponent with the force of a meteor, disregarding the target’s Ability. Solgaleo’s Ability is Full Metal Body, a new Ability that no previous Pokémon has had. With the Full Metal Body Ability, a Pokémon’s stats will not be lowered by the effects of an opponent’s moves or Ability.

Sementara itu, Lunala memiliki ability Shadow Shield yang mengurangi damage dari serangan musuh apabila Lunala memiliki HP penuh. Lunala memiliki kombinasi tipe Psychic/Ghost dan signature move Moongeist Beam.

Since ancient times, Lunala has been honored as an emissary of the moon. It is referred to with reverence as “the beast that calls the moon.” Lunala is constantly absorbing light and converting it into energy. With its wings spread to absorb the surrounding light and glittering like a crescent moon, it resembles a beautiful night sky. Lunala’s signature Moongeist Beam attack releases an ominous beam of light that disregards the target’s Ability.

Lunala’s Ability is Shadow Shield, a new Ability that no previous Pokémon has had. With the Shadow Shield Ability, a Pokémon will take less damage from an attack that lands when the Pokémon has full HP.

Setelah sebelumnya menghilang dalam Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, fitur character customization akhirnya kembali dalam Pokémon Sun & Moon. Namun, belum diketahui apakah karakter utama akan dapat membeli pakaian dan aksesori lain seperti dalam Pokémon X & Y.

You will choose to be a hero or heroine in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, and you can name yourself whatever you’d like. The story begins right after your character has moved to the Alola region. No sooner have you arrived than your adventures begin to unfold, and you’ll meet many people and Pokémon as you grow and learn.



Karakter baru pun siap menemai kalian di region Alola. Terdapat tiga karakter yang diperlihatkan kali ini, yaitu Professor Kukui, Lillie, dan Hau. Lillie adalah asisten Professor Kukui dan Hau kemungkinan besar merupakan rival karakter utama.

Professor Kukui is the Alola region’s dependable Pokémon professor. He lives near your home and looks out for you. He’s passionate about his research into Pokémon moves and has sometimes taken direct hits from Pokémon when there was something to be learned from it. Sporting a white lab coat slung casually over his bare torso, he shows off his own unique style.

Lillie is a mysterious girl who assists the professor. This young girl is about the same age as your character, and she’s working as Professor Kukui’s assistant for personal reasons. She’s not fond of making Pokémon fight in battles, but she loves reading and has devoured many books. Lillie will play an important role in the story of Pokémon Sunand Pokémon Moon.

Hau is a Pokémon-loving young boy with a big appetite! He’s the same age as your character. When you move to the Alola region, he makes friends with you right away. He has a real weakness for malasada, a famous treat in the Alola region, and he is always in search of malasada shops. He is a big-hearted boy who really loves Pokémon.




Untuk pertama kalinya dalam sejarah video game Pokémon, Pokédex (alat yang digunakan Trainer untuk mencatat informasi Pokémon) dapat bergerak layaknya Pokémon. Yep, walaupun terdengar aneh, Pokédex dari Alola dapat bergabung dengan Rotom. Apakah ini berarti akan ada wujud baru Rotom? Rotom Dex?

The Pokédex is a convenient tool that records information about the Pokémon you see and catch during your adventure. In Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, your character receives a special Pokédex from Professor Kukui to support you in your travels. It’s known as the Rotom Pokédex, and it’s inhabited by Rotom, a Pokémon with the power to reside in various electronic appliances. It does much more than record Pokémon info—it sparkles with its own personality.

The Rotom Pokédex shows your current location and your next destination, and it also gives you advice on where to go next, based on the conversations you have with others! It’s likely to be of great help to you in many parts of your adventure. The Rotom Pokédex is an extremely rare device. There are only a few Trainers that have one, even in the Alola region.




Salah satu fitur baru dalam Pokémon Sun & Moon adalah QR Scanner. Dengan fitur tersebut, pemain dapat menambahkan informasi Pokémon tertentu ke dalam Pokédex, termasuk tempat untuk menangkapnya. Kode-kode QR akan tersebar di berbagai lokasi. Tak lupa, Trainer pun dapat berbagi QR code dari Pokémon yang telah ditangkap.

In Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, there is a QR Scanner function that allows you to see information about Pokémon when you scan QR Code patterns. With the QR Scanner, you scan in a QR Code and check the information about the Pokémon that corresponds to that QR Code. There are QR Code patterns in various places all around you, so try scanning them.

By scanning in special QR Code patterns you can register Pokémon of the Alola region to your Pokédex and find out where they live. If you scan in the QR Code for a Pokémon that you haven’t yet caught, you can check its habitat and search it out.

You can display the QR Code patterns for Pokémon you have caught in your own Pokédex. If you and a friend show each other the QR Code patterns for Pokémon you have caught, you can both register the Pokémon in your Pokédexes!


Pokémon Sun & Moon merupakan generasi ke-7 dari video game seri Pokémon. Pokémon Sun & Moon akan diluncurkan pada tanggal 18 November 2016 di Jepang dan Amerika Serikat.
