It’s been announced that Shigeki Morimoto is going to stream live gameplay footage of Pokémon Sun and Moon at this year’s Gamescom (that’s Gamescom with an “M” – thanks twitter followers) in Germany! The demo will be streamed via Nintendo Germany’s Twitch channel on August 18th, 8:00am PST! Check out what time that is for you here. No word on the specifics of what the stream will show, but we’ll be here to watch and cover anything new that comes from it!

What are you hoping to see from the stream? Would love to see some gameplay of another early town – perhaps one new Pokémon?

  • Lets get ready to rumble people! Hoping for some strong material.
    Bring it on!

  • ryn

    honestly not expecting anything big but I’d like one new pkmn

  • TheSunnyMonster6893

    OH GOD I CAN’T WAIT!!! lol I hope it’ll be as interesting as the E3 one. They showed a decent amount without actually telling us and that’s perfect! I imagine we’ll get a new Pokemon. That’d be cool………lol

  • EarthenWarrior

    I really hope we see at least the Baby Bewear and the Sandcastle

    • George Costas

      RUNUGANGA LIVES!

  • David Nixon

    almost like you’re in a movie theater and we got ourselves front row seats. 😀

  • Naomi Kitty

    It’s during School time, 11:00 am. WHY MORIMOTO WHY!!!! will I at least be able to watch it?

    • EarthenWarrior

      Nobody knows

    • Ithsme

      First day is a half day. 😀

      • Green

        Same. It should start on a Friday tho, but it starts on a friggin Wednesday.

    • Timezones. You can’t expect him to be awake at the wee hours of the day in Germany.

  • Pharap

    I would have hung around and participated in the hype, but my mood’s really dead in the water now so I’m just going to go before I bring anyone down.

  • Wes

    Dang, this is the first news of the school season for me, and all my teachers are strict on phone policies. Bummer. :/

    • EarthenWarrior

      It’s called taking a dump

      • Wes

        I’d sooner wait than hang out in a public school restroom.

        • EarthenWarrior

          Yeah they are one of the most germ ridden areas known to man
          But on the other hand, live gameplay

    • Green

      I can relate to this. Except that we can’t even HAVE our phones in class. They need to be off in our Lockers…

  • EarthenWarrior

    Pppptbbthhhbhbhhhhhhhhhh….. -___-”
    So I wonder what the ol’ Sandcastle thing will be
    My phat gut has a feeling that this thing won’t have any outstanding qualities, maybe some above average defense or sub-par Sp Attack, it honestly feels like the Whiscash of this generation
    But then again I could be wrong, it could be the next Klefki which everyone mocked but the found the thing the bane of existence
    I mean this this bound to get Arena Trap would could be very good since as a Ghost it may have access to Wisp which all Ghosts can learn (EXCEPT GOLURK WHICH I FELT WAS A TOTAL DICK MOVE ALL THE TIMES THAT COULDVE HELPED)
    So Trap it, burn it, and eat their souls with Hex ding a ring done

    On a side note I truly hope this thing can Sandshift its body into fantastic and terrifying forms, like it stretches outward with its mouth and arms, or turn into a pit trap OOOOOooooo if it learns Phantom Force it sinks its arm into the ground and attacks

    • Sounds like a great strategy. I like the pit trap idea. It can dig?

      Aegislash can’t learn Will-O-Wisp and it’s doing fine.

      • EarthenWarrior

        It could dig, but it sifts into the ground
        But me being the super creative one I would train it to carve out tunnels that could collapse during battle, and also (though cruel, dark and most likely fatal) swallow the Pokemon whole and force itself underground and “eject” them under the earth’s crust leaving it there as Sandoom easily sifts back to the surface

        • Vicious and flashy!

          Though yeah, the Pokemon battling committee will force you to eject the opponent from the crust.

          • EarthenWarrior

            What next, regulation standard claws and horns worn down to a non-lethal point

          • Yes?

            I guess.

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      i hope his stats are similar to cofagrigus

      • EarthenWarrior

        I’m hoping this thing works
        Believe it or not I’m actually excited that it’s Ghost, normally ghost types don’t do it for me but this one is different
        I hope I can at least write a decent personality and capture story for it

  • The Last Kurusu

    So on 12 he scale when will it air in the USA? I want to once again take pics of new stuff I still have one of the first of Yungoos screenshots the instant it was seen and Pikipek too

    • 12 he scale? Anyway it’s at 8am PDT, 11am EDT, 5pm CEST, 10pm Hong Kong time

      • The Last Kurusu

        12 hours scale I meant

      • Pharap

        It’s 4pm UTC for anyone who actually uses *Universal* Coordinated Time

  • thegreatcarbinkle

    i want a ghost type recovery move!

    • The Last Kurusu

      I could go with that

    • Ithsme

      The best thing I could come up with was “Recorporeate”. But that’s probably not a word and not all of the ghost types are corporeal.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Ehhhhhh I don’t see one happening

      • thegreatcarbinkle

        i was thinking something that deals with taking the pokemon souls because most of the ghost pokemon says that they suck the souls of people

      • Daniel

        Doesn’t surprise me, Miss Debbie Downer

        • EarthenWarrior

          The last fucking thing I need is Ghosts to get another leg up
          They already have universal burning with Wisp but a new recovery would make them impossible to deal with

    • Recover and Pain Split are as good as it gets.

      Pain Split is very thematic too.

      • thegreatcarbinkle

        i wish defensive ghost pokemon had recovery moves:(.

        • Sableye and Jellicent have Recover.

          Rotom, Spiritomb Dusclops/knoir, Cofagrigus have Pain Split.

          Well I guess that’s as good as it gets!

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            i wish recover was spread to the dusknoir, spiritomb and cofagrigus line

          • Yep it would make them more viable.

          • EarthenWarrior

            And all of them are ginormous thorns in my backside

      • EarthenWarrior

        Pain Split is BS

        • George Costas

          Hi Earthen, Why are you up so late?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Insomnia

          • George Costas

            Wasn’t that recently?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Years

          • George Costas

            I looked and it’s actually coming up.

          • EarthenWarrior

            What are you talking about?
            Anyway I’ve been an insomniac for years and I sleep terribly

          • George Costas

            I was making a joke, Insomnia is a Thing in the UK…

          • EarthenWarrior

            Screw off

          • Exeledus

            i know how you feel buddy. I usually cant sleep until around 7 a.m, the wake up at about 9-10. I’m always sooooo tired.

          • The Last Kurusu

            I go to bed 10-11 pm and wake up 6 am almost everyday

  • Guzma

    As much as I liked Lockstin’s theory for the end of pokemon and stuff I wish he’d do away with the theatrics.

    I understand it’s supposed to be entertainment but it’s just a tad annoying to me. I feel like they could have cut it down into a much shorter video.

    • The Last Kurusu

      No Pokemon will never end

      Pokemon… FOREVER!!!!!!!

      • Guzma

        Nah it’s gotta end sometime.

        • The Last Kurusu

          Yet why do Go, a live action movie, and of what I see the most hyped Pokemon game just to end it here

          • Guzma

            The theory says they won’t end it and do more of a reboot of sorts. Which I’m fine with.

          • The Last Kurusu

            A reboot I would love it

    • Guzma

      Also it looks like he’s staring into my soul when he talks into the camera.

    • Ithsme

      Idk I like it. It makes the whole thing more exciting to me.

  • TheSunnyMonster6893

    I think we may be getting something for sure this weekend at Worlds lol we already know Morimoto is playing a demo at Gamescom, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this “secret” he has is Worlds related as he lives in California I believe. Plus he’s had insider info before hahaha. (Refresh as needed)

    • Soggy Auggy

      Sounds like someone’s lying to get views on his lame-ass TCG site

      As someone who lives in Germany I can confirm I haven’t seen any WPMs in Cologne

      • He’s not talking about Gamescom, WPM will probably be at Worlds this weekend, which is in San Francisco. They have revealed things there before (Mega Kangaskhan) so it’s not surprising if he knows since like what TheSunnyMonster said, he’s had insider info before.

        Also, you could lay off the attitude there bud.

      • TheSunnyMonster6893

        He is probably talking about Worlds this weekend rather than Gamescom. I’d imagine we’ll get something interesting at either the opening ceremonies or closing.

  • Syurichu

    If they’ll play an early german version of the game, i’d be glad to translate the events for you guys 🙂 !

    • That would be real appreciated!

      Though it is also likely he will play a Japanese version and you will need to translate the german announcer instead.

      • Syurichu

        Sure! I guess I’ll do so in the dedicated posts comments section? 🙂

  • Exeledus

    yay cant wait! hope we get some more cool normal types or some really beautiful pokemon! (though so far I haven’t been let down in this department)

    • EarthenWarrior

      Did you hear about my Normal/Ghost type?
      It is a tiny white creature, large ears, maybe whiskers, no really distinctive qualities really but connected to its tail that is in the ground it its shadow which acts and thinks independently, able to fight back and protect its host

    • The Last Kurusu

      What about Alolan Ninetales

      • EarthenWarrior

        Tramp

      • Exeledus

        I said that I haven’t been let down by beautiful pokemon so far, I love alolan ninetails!

  • EarthenWarrior

    https://youtu.be/GoJNiqg0IoQ
    NEW YOOKA-LAYLEE TRAILER

    • The Last Kurusu

      I know the guy said he wasn’t but prime Canidate for Smash bros.

      • EarthenWarrior

        I already have some moves
        B: Tongue Grabble/Berry Spit
        Side: Reptile Roll
        Up: Laylee Flight
        Down: Ground Pound

        • The Last Kurusu

          Yes this guy sounds like a perfect fighter!

        • Guzma

          I smell Yoshi.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Yeah I thought someone was gonn say that but could you blame me?
            They share a lot of the same qualities

          • Guzma

            Yeah but you could still probably make it more unique.

          • EarthenWarrior

            There’s plenty moves we don’t know yet
            Maybe switch the Laylee flight for the tail spring
            Reptile roll is a must

  • EarthenWarrior

    So apparently Simple Bibarel can be nightmarish if provoked

  • OG Bulba

    Hey how come this article won’t show up on the home page and I have to use Earthen’s link to get here???

    • Ithsme

      Just scroll down. It works on mobile for me.

  • Richard Haslam

    Just thought of what Rowlet’s final evolved form’s name might possibly be, from knowing how Game Freak Operates…

    ”Emp”eror Nap”oleon” = Empoleon

    ”Rob”in ”Hood” = Robhood, or Robhoot

    Though that’s just a guess.

    Here’s a game we can do, try the naming Rowlet’s Final Evolution, but with one catch being having Robin Hood inspired in it.

  • David Nixon

    alright guys tomorrow is going to be the big day,the Pokemon Sun and Moon Gameplay in gamecon.*builds a Gaming movie theater* tickets please. 🙂

  • EarthenWarrior

    • Richard Haslam

      I wonder if they’ll have a level similar to Click Clock Wood?

      • EarthenWarrior

        Possibly I hope for a Clanker’s cavernesque level
        Especially if it takes place inside a gigantic monster

    • Green

      Just watch it with the volume down and you’ll enjoy it more.

    • Colton Brown

      Kartos…God of Ore…*slow clap*

    • Pharap

      If it ends up on Steam, I’ll definately give it a go.

  • David Nixon
