Pokemon Reshiram and Zekrom coming to Pokemon Sun and Moon

Who doesn’t like more Pokemon? Probably those who don’t really care about Pokemon, but if that was you then you wouldn’t be reading this, would you?

In any case, two legends will be coming to Pokemon Sun and Moon and Ultra Sun and Moon on October 5th. Players will be able to download either Reshiram or Zekrom, who hail from the games Unova region.

Whichever you want is down to the game you own but allow me to explain the difference between the two. Reshiram is a fire-type Pokemon while Zekrom is an electric-type Pokemon. You can see the full abilities and statistics of each below.
