With Pokemon Sun and Moon expected to hit the shelves on the 18 November, so to get you ready for the next gen of Pokemon, here’s everything you should know about the upcoming game.

More character customisation choices

For the first time ever, you’ll be able to customise your skin colour. In Pokemon X and Y you were already given the options to change your hair colour and clothes/accessories, a feature that makes a comeback in Sun and Moon, with those welcome extra options.

Alolan version Pokemon

With each new generation of Pokemon we usually get a whole load of totally new critters, but this time we also special variants of some of the original Pokemon that we know and love. They’ve taken the firey Vulpix and imbued it with the power of ice, and the Alolan sun has caused Exeguttor to keep growing and growing. We’re not sure if they will reveal more.

Here are the Alolan variants that we know of so far:

Vulpix and Ninetails
