Nintendo continues to dripfeed new info on the upcoming Pokemon Sun/Moon, and boy has that tactic worked. Every week or two, we get the debut of another Pokemon or a never-before-seen "Alola Form," and all it does is get us more anxious for the next marketing-controlled release of what's become an addictive substance. The latest video shows off a new kind of Rattata and Raichu's unique attack, but by far the highlight was Snorlax's Z-move.
Poor Gumshoos. The little Trump-like Pokemon never had a chance. As advertised in the video, Snorlax's nuclear "Pulverizing Pancake" move requires a special item, which will come packed with a free Munchlax for any players who buy Sun/Moon in the first few months of release.
Seeing Snorlax finally get off his ass and book it across the screen for a devastating attack has, of course, inspired the internet.

Raichu and Snorlax will learn a move called Pancake Room that makes Pancake stat decide speed
