Pokemon Sun and Moon demo coming later this month

Nintendo has confirmed that Pokemon Sun and Moon will be getting its own playable demo on October 18.

The demo will be available on Nintendo 3DS through the eShop marketplace, giving you a small taste of the upcoming RPG.

Those who download and play the trial version before the game launches on November 23 will receive a special variant of Greninja to be used on their adventure.

Details on the demo may be sparse at the moment, but Nintendo did reveal some of the evolutions for Sun and Moon’s starter Pokemon. They’re fabulously adorable.
