There's also a Pokémon Sun and Moon Fan Edition which you can buy at GAME for £44. The Fan Version includes the game inside a special SteelBook case. Pre-ordering will also bag you a exclusive figurine.

You can also buy Pokémon Sun and Moon direct from Nintendo. The company is offering three different packages, including one with this awesome new Nintendo 3DS design featuring the games' two new starring Pokémon Solgaleo and Lunala.

Following the launch, Nintendo announced that Pokémon Sun and Moon is its fastest selling title to date with 3.7m copies sold in the Americas over two weeks. That breaks the record set by Pokémon XY by a whopping 85 percent. Other reports suggest that the Nintendo has sold 1.9m in Japan, 1.5m in Europe and more than 350,000 in the UK.

Pokémon Sun and Moon is now available in the UK following the biggest 3DS launch of all time, with Nintendo shipping 10 million copies of the game worldwide. That's not sales, but the figure is 1.5x larger than the initial shipment of XY. That title sold more than 15.6m copies so that's the target for Sun and Moon.

Pokémon Sun and Moon Fan Edition

This game will follow the popular Pokémon X and Y which launched on the 3DS back in 2013 so it’s about time we got a new title which would be the seventh generation.

When Pokémon Sun and Moon launches, it will be available globally and in nine languages with Nintendo adding traditional and simplified Chinese alongside other options such as English, Spanish and Italian.

The firm hopes that Pokémon trainers will be able to overcome language barriers and be able to communicate with each other better over the internet. A feature called Pokémon Bank will mean that players can transfer any of their Pokémon from the original trio to Sun and Moon which is pretty cool.

At E3 2016 a new battle format called Battle Royal was announced for Pokémon Sun and Pokémon, whereby four Trainers battle at once. Each chooses three Pokémon, with one entering the field at a time, and it's all over when all three Pokémon of any one Trainer have fainted. The remaining Trainers are then ranked.

Watch the below Pokémon Sun and Moon trailer below for a mix of gameplay, new Pokémon and the Battle Royal mode.

Pokémon Sun and Moon: New trailers

Below is the latest trailer for Sun and Moon called A World Beyond giving you an idea of what the game is all about.

You'll also want to check out this awesome fan-made trailer for Pokémon which we're sure Nintendo is wishing it thought of. Get the tissues ready because it's a bit of a tear jerker.

Pokémon Sun and Moon: Starter Pokémon

Following on in the tradition of previous Pokémon games, players will have to choose one of three special Pokémon to be their first partner in Sun and Moon. In this version of Pokémon you'll pick between newly discovered Rowlet, Litten, and Popplio.

As usual, they follow the format of grass, fire and water and you can see details of each below.

Pokémon Sun and Moon starters

Name: Rowlet
Category: Grass Quill Pokémon
Height: 1' 00"
Weight: 3.3lbs
Type: Grass/Flying
Starting Move: Leafage

The first of the potential partners is the highly adaptable Grass Quill Pokémon, Rowlet. This Pokémon can fly silently through the skies, sneaking up on its opponent without being noticed. It can attack its opponents using powerful kicks, and it can also attack from a distance using the razor-sharp leaves that form part of its feathers. Rowlet can survey its environment and turn its neck nearly 180 degrees from front to back, so it can see directly behind itself. When in battle, Rowlet turns its head to face its Trainer when waiting for instructions.

Name: Litten
Category: Fire Cat Pokémon
Height: 1' 04"
Weight: 9.5lbs
Type: Fire
Starting Move: Ember

The cool-headed Fire Cat Pokémon, Litten, is the next choice for a first-partner Pokémon. Litten’s fur is rich in oils and is immensely flammable. It constantly grooms itself by licking its coat, collecting loose fur into balls. It then ignites these hairballs to create fireball attacks. When the time comes for Litten to molt, it burns off all of its fur in one glorious blaze.

Name: Popplio
Category: Sea Lion Pokémon
Height: 1' 04"
Weight: 16.5lbs
Type: Water
Starting Move: Water Gun

The third possibility is the acrobatic Sea Lion Pokémon, Popplio. Popplio can create balloons made of water from its nose and utilize them to create a variety of different strategies and attacks in battle. This Pokémon is better at moving in the water than on land, and can swim at speeds over 25 mph. On land, it uses the elasticity of the balloons it creates to perform jumps and acrobatic stunts.

In yet another video, The Pokémon Company has revealed the final evolutions for the Sun and Moon starters – they are Decidueye, Incineroar and Primarina. The video also includes some new Pokémon, Alolan forms and trainers such as Red and Blue.

Two legendary Pokémon have been announced as Solgaleo and Lunala, which will feature in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon respectively. See more in the video below:

At E3 2016 Nintendo announced a further three Pokémon: Pikipek, Yungoos and Grubbin.

Pikipek, which likes to collect glittery objects and hide them in their food stores, can strike trees up to 16 times per second to bore holes - this powerful action can even shatter stone. Pikipek can also fire seeds at opponents with enough power to embed them into tree trunks.

Yungoos is an extremely hungry Pokémon, and when its stomach rumbles it gets pretty grumpy. It's pretty much all about its stomach, but some Yungoos also possess the Stakeout ability, with their moves dealing twice the normal damage to any Pokémon that enters the field mid-battle.

Grubbin is a bug-type Pokémon with a strong jaw, munching away in battle and using its nashers to burrow into the ground. Sticky threads can be spat from its mouth and wrapped around trees, enabling Grubbin to swing between them a bit like Tarzan.
