The 2016 Electronic Entertainment Expo, AKA E3, is underway, and today's Nintendo Treehouse stream hit fans with a huge 40-minute preview of the upcoming Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon games, plus a gameplay trailer, revealing three brand new Pokémon.

We can't wait to catch 'em all!

Yungoos is a sharp-toothed, normal-type Pokémon whose design appears to be inspired by a mongoose.

We're guessing this cute rodent will appear very frequently toward the beginning of the game, like Rattata, Sentret, Zigzagoon, Bidoof, and Patrat have in the past. With those big teeth, we bet his evolved form will pack a punch!

The tropical Alola region featured in Pokémon Sun and Moon is inspired by Hawaii, and the normal and flying-type bird Pikipek looks completely at home there.

Look at that little tuft of feathers on its head! Pikipek just might give previous bird Pokémon like Pidgey, Starly, and Fletchling a run for their money.



New bug-type Pokémon Grubbin from Sun and Moon

Grubbin is a new bug-type Pokémon. He may not look that impressive now, but based on those pincers, we think his later forms have huge potential.


But these new additions aren't the only reasons we're looking forward to the new games! There are also the three adorable starters: Rowlet, Litten, and Popplio. Following in true Pokémon tradition, they are grass, fire and water-type, respectively.

And then of course there are the amazing new legendaries, the powerful sun Pokémon, Solgaleo, and the mysterious moon Pokémon, Lunala.
