Pokemon Sun and Moon is the 6th series of Pokemon anime, after the XY series. This time, Ash travels to the Alola region, a cluster of islands in the Pokemon World, with his best friend Pikachu. There he joins a Pokemon school for Pokemon trainers, meets new friends and even receives a Z-ring, which helps him to unleash an extra-powerful move with his Pokemon!
Some basic facts
- Pokemon Sun and Moon is set in the Alola islands, whose culture is similar to the Hawaiian culture in offshore Hawaii. Alolan people say “Alola!” when greeting each other and eat delicious deserts like Malasada.
- The three starter Pokemon are Rowlet, Litten and Popplio. In the series, Ash has caught Rowlet and his friend Lana has a Popplio.
- Ash’s friends at the Trainer’s School are Lana, Mallow, Kiawe, Lillie and Sophocles.Ash is also close to his teacher Professor Kukui and the principal Samson Oak.
- Ash’s Pokedex is alive! It is called Rotom and it also talks to Ash like a human friend. Rotom introduces Pokemon to Ash and analyzes Pokemon behaviour. He reminds me of Professor Elm from earlier episodes.
