Hang on to your Pokéballs Professor Oak, because Pokémon fever is officially hitting an all-time high today (May 10).
After months of celebrating 20 years of Pokémon (yes, we're all old), the creators of the legendary franchise unveiled a brand new trailer for the two latest games in the series: Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, due out on November 18 in the US for Nintendo 3DS and 2DS — and revealed the adorable three new starter Pokémon you'll choose from to start your adventure in the Alola region: Rowlet (a Grass/Flying type), Popplio (a Water type), Litten (a Fire type). They look like an owl, a clown seal and a fire-breathing cat, respectively.
That's right: it's lit(ten).
Accordingly, Pokémon Twitter is already freaking out — from The Life of Popplio Kanye West edits to elaborate fan illustrations drawn up within seconds after seeing the trailer, which you can now watch above.
