A new video announcement has been published, with the following new announcements.
The starters' first-stage evolutions have been revealed:
Rowlet evolves into the Grass/Flying Dartrix.
Litten evolves into the Fire Torracat.
Popplio evolves into the Water Brionne.
The Join Avenue from Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 will be returning in spirit as the Festival Plaza, a place where you can build up a plaza and interact with or hire those you have played with online, locally, or passed via StreetPass.
Poké Pelago is a place where the Pokémon in your PC can spend their time while they're not on an adventure with you. Several isles are available for them to visit:
[*]Isle Abeens - "Attract wild Pokémon and they might join your game."
[*]Isle Aphun - "Let your Pokémon search for valuable items."
[*]Isle Evelup - "Leave your Pokémon here for training."
Mega Evolution has been revealed to return. Mega Lucario, Mega Kangaskhan, and Mega Salamence were shown in the video. Rather than hunting for the Mega Stones, they can be purchased for 64 BP each.
Finally, a special demo of the games will be available to download on October 18, 2016. Through the demo, you will be able to acquire a Greninja that can transform via Bond Phenomenon into Ash-Greninja.
