Players will be able to “Groom their team,” with Pokémon Refresh, which allows players to essentially treat their Pokémon like Nintendogs, and literally groom them.

Also announced are new Z-Moves for Pikachu and Eevee:

For Pikachu, there is Catastropika, in which the player’s character does a dance with Pikachu, sending Pikachu into a massive whirlwind of electricity that annihilates the opponent.

Seriously, watch the animation for this. It's awesome.

For Eevee, there is Extreme Evoboost, which the animation looks awesome for. Eevee’s eevolutions all show up and send their power into Eevee, charging the Pokémon and sharply raising its Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense and Speed.

The animation for Extreme Evoboost really looks incredible.

Pokémon Sun and Moon are out on November 18th for 3DS.
