Following in the tradition of previous games in the Pokémon series, players choose one of three special Pokémon to be their first partner. These are among the first Pokémon players will encounter in the game.
In Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, players will be able to choose between the newly discovered Grass and Flying-type Pokémon Rowlet, Fire-type Litten, and Water-type Popplio.
Please note: This is a digital download of the full Pokemon Sun game.
I haven't played Pokemon since I bought Pokemon Red on its release, so I have little knowledge about the games in between. From start there is nothing weird, it's still the same principles as the first games so even a "veteran" as me had no troubles understanding how to play. I'm have about 90hrs in the game, which isn't a alot, but there are still lots of Pokemon to discover and side-quests to do. The only negative about this game really is the rival, he heals you before battles and such - quite the bad rival according to me. In the old games your rival always showed up at wrong time when your Pokemon's were in bad shape, making it really necessary to always have potions and alike at hand. Your rival even chooses the "wrong" Pokemon now! I went with the fire Pokemon as starter, I always do, and my rival then selected the grass Pokemon; I've never lost to my rival, not even close to loosing! All-in-all, great game and definitely worth every penny spent!
There are a lot of things we have come to expect from Pokemon games over the years: New Pokemon, a new crime syndicate bent on world domination and new companions /rival NPCS but most of all a lot of Pokemon battles. This title has a more of a light hearted story than X / Y and really starts to feel like an old school JRPG, this teamed up with "Trials" which replaces gym battles really helps the fights are against stronger version of Pokemon and feel like proper boss fights. the Z power system is a nice touch too and beats the Mega evolution mechanic the only real draw back of the title is it's frame rate dropping if you are on a newer 3DS you will drop frames in double battles and when Z power is used, on an older 3DS well you will never have a solid frame rate... this isn't amazingly deal breaking seems battle is turn based but it is VERY noticeable.
i really loved these games loved the trials and the new Pokemon and i loved that there was cut scenes instead of just static dialogue the region was beautiful and lush the only real gripe i have is that the first hour or so is a little slow and the story was great! so many likable characters
Ill keep this review short for those who are considering buying it: First of all, it has improved on its older brethren (by a lot) The world feels a lot more alive at this time A lot more pokemon and social features are added. I mean, whats there to miss? I haven't completed the game, but i do know that it will be a worthwhile journey
