WARNING! THIS CONTAINS SPOILERS TO POKEMON SUN AND MOON!

I know there are people out there who don’t want to be spoiled.

what-the-fangirl-pokemon-sun-moon-final-evoI’ll get to the more surprising news in a moment. Today, Nintendo officially dropped a trailer with the final evolutions for Pokemon Sun and Moon out next month. This isn’t the newest information. A few weeks back when the demo dropped, hackers broke into the codes and revealed the evolutions as well as most of the Pokedex. It is great to get the final official word from them.

In the new trailer, they also revealed the new Pokemon Cosmog and all the island guardians from the Alola Region. My Nintendo News reports:

Cosmog and Alolan Persian have also been discovered. Information on the guardian deities of three different Alolan islands – Tapu Lele (Psychic/Fairy), Tapu Bulu (Grass/Fairy), and Tapu Fini (Water/Fairy)– is now available for the first time.

While all this is cool, the trailer had one more thing that made me ridiculously excited. They’re implementing a new system called the Battle Tree where you can fight along side some familiar trainers from past games. This is where the whole 20th anniversary of Pokemon gets really nostalgic. Two familiar faces popped up in the trailer:

Trainers Red and Blue.

They’re the two that started it all back in the first game. They’re the base designs that led to Ash Ketchum and his first rival Gary Oak in the television show. What pushed me over the edge though?

Red and Blue are adults now.

Or at least teenagers. Point is, they’re older than they used to be.

I started playing Pokemon when I was nine years old. In the game, Red and Blue were ten. Now, twenty years later, they are adults like I am. It’s very cool to see this, and I got teary witnessing how far they’ve come.

Check out the new trailer below:
