3DS Direct 9/1/16

It's been a while since the last Nintendo Direct. Here's what they had to say about the 3DS.

Pokémon Sun and Moon- There will be regional differences in some Pokémon that you are familiar with. Some of them change types. Z-moves are powerful Pokémon moves that occur when Pokémon and trainers unleash their full power. What Z-move is used is based on the type of Z-Crystal used. Some moves are exclusive to certain Pokémon. Munchlax will be a special bonus that will have a special Z-move when evolved into Snorlax, Pulverizing Pancake. It will be distributed from launch until January 11, 2017. -November 18, 2016
