Players will be given a Poké Ball containing Greninja from “a certain someone,” which can turn into Ash-Greninja as seen in the Pokémon the Series: XYZ anime.
The adventure that you will undertake in the demo will be separate from the main game, and will see Greninja join you as a member of your team. Once you have completed the demo, Greninja can then be transferred across to the full version of either Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon.
The Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon Special Demo Version will become available on the Nintendo eShop on Tuesday 18th October.
Category: Ninja Pokémon
Weight: 88.2 lbs.
Ability: Battle Bond
Ash-Greninja has powered up thanks to the strength of its bonds with Ash. This is the form Greninja takes when it has gained new power due to the miraculous occurrence known as the bond phenomenon. This can be brought on by the bonds between people and Pokémon. It seems that it has only known to have occurred once—several hundred years ago.
Ash-Greninja’s leg strength has been enhanced compared to an ordinary Greninja, making it difficult to see because of the speed at which it can move. It takes its enemies out in a flash! It becomes able to make giant Water Shurikens on its back, and it can throw them in rapid succession.
Greninja that can become Ash-Greninja have an Ability that no Pokémon has ever had before—Battle Bond. The Battle Bond Ability triggers this Pokémon’s form change to Ash-Greninja after it causes an opponent’s Pokémon to faint. When the battle ends, the Pokémon returns to its original Greninja form. This form is only for battles where it needs to break the limits!
Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will release exclusively for Nintendo 3DS in North America, Australia and New Zealand on November 18th, and in Europe on November 23rd.
