A new Nintendo Direct presentation has revealed Alolan Rattata, Pokémon-exclusive Z-Moves, and a Munchlax distribution for Pokémon Sun and Moon.

Alolan Rattata is Dark/Normal-type. It can have either Gluttony or Hustle as its Hidden Ability. Alolan Raticate is also known to exist, but no image or further information has been presented.

While there are Z-Moves for every type that any Pokémon can use, certain Pokémon have exclusive Z-Moves. Alolan Raichu has the exclusive Z-Move Stoked Sparksurfer and Snorlax has the exclusive Z-Move Pulverizing Pancake.

Additionally, a Munchlax will be available via Nintendo Network for Pokémon Sun and Moon until January 11, 2017. This Munchlax will know the event-exclusive moves Happy Hour and Hold Back. It will hold the Snorlium Z, the Z-Crystal that allows Snorlax to use the Z-Move Pulverizing Pancake.
