Starter Pokemon

You take a personality quiz, and the game picks your starter Pokemon for you. No, really. Whereas before, you were locked into this choice, you can now change it.

Other Changes We Know About

Although there are probably more changes than we know about right now, these were all either confirmed in the trailer or by various people on social media.

We do not know any specifics of these changes, but we can assume they are all going to be unique in their own regards. 

Mega-Evolution

Some new items, like the Bank Orb.
The Makuhita Dojo has been revamped. Only one Pokémon can enter at a time, experience gained is boosted, and there is a time limit, depending on which ticket the player gives to Makuhita.
