New Pokémon Sun & Moon footage reveals a brand-new move called Dragon Hammer, which Alolan Exeggutor uses in battle to decimate his opponent.
Episode 73 of Nintendo’s Japanese bi-monthly video series called “Nya Nya Nya! Neko Mario Time” (ニャニャニャ! ネコマリオタイム) has been published. In it, a short clip shows a level 50 Alolan Exeggutor using a move called Dragon Hammer (ドラゴンハンマー) to wipe out a level 30 Exeggcute.
Interestingly, this is the first known instance of Dragon Hammer. Specific details about the move, including its English name, are still unknown. And it’s unclear if Pokémon other than Dragon-type are able to learn the move.
In less than two months, Pokémon Sun & Moon will launch on Nintendo 3DS. Here’s hoping the Pokémon Sun & Moon demo Nintendo recently applied for will release ahead of the games’ debut.
As a reminder, The Pokémon Company is set to reveal more information about the pair of upcoming games on Tuesday, October 4 at 6 a.m. PT/ 9 a.m. ET.
