A "Pokémon Sun and Moon" leak has revealed that the Alola region could be a group of tropical islands. This has been a theory long-suggested by fans.
Comicbook.com reported that Amazon was the source of the "Pokémon Sun and Moon" leak. The company gave details on the highly-anticipated games and unintentionally revealed a spoiler.
However, there seems to be no major problem as most fans have already guessed the spoiler anyway. It confirmed that the Alola region will be a series of islands. "[E]mbark on a new adventure as a Pokémon Trainer and catch, battle, and trade all-new Pokémon on the tropical islands of a new Region and become a Pokémon Champion," the games' description read.
Apparently, the Alola region is somewhere off of the Hawaiian island chain in the Pacific Ocean. Some fans worried that the island revealed in the "Pokémon Sun and Moon" trailer, based on the island of Oahu, could be the extent of the region.
The "Pokémon Sun and Moon" leak sparked speculations that the game may introduce alternate means of travel. Past "Pokémon" games usually take place on a large piece of land.
The "Pokémon Sun and Moon" release date will be on Nov. 18 for North America and Asia. Europe will get the game by Nov. 23.
It was previously reported that "Sun and Moon" will be the first all-new Pokémon entry since 2013's "X and Y" for the 3DS. It will feature traditional and simplified Chinese as language options. It will be the first game in the franchise's history to offer that feature.
It will also have the Pokémon Bank function. This will allow players to move the creatures wirelessly from "Pokémon Red," "Blue," "Yellow," "Omega Ruby," "Alpha Sapphire," "X" and "Y."
Meanwhile, the announcement for the "Pokémon GO" release date may come soon. New details for the game have been revealed as well.
