I enjoyed Pokemon Sun and Moon. It had some unique twists to the same old story, and the graphics were just super. There’s a new, super version coming out soon, but I think I’ll pass…or maybe I’ll buy it! I haven’t decided yet! Either way, here’s an Honest Trailer!
Good times. I think fun was had by all.
The new Elite Four stands defeated. The Ultra Beasts are in my grasp. Even Necrozma is mine to command. I have defeated Pokemon Moon — almost, there are still a few random battles to fight and meadows to explore. But still, I’ve logged upwards of 50 hours into Pokemon Moon and had a blast! This was a great game and a ton of fun, and now it’s time for a recap.
Video Game Rating: 8/10 – Very Good.
I loved the new Pokemon. I loved the new story. I had a blast designing my character and adventuring across the wilderness with her. Like every Pokemon game for a good, long while now, I played a girl named Whistler, to honor my fan fiction character from high school. And Pokemon Moon was so good, I’m considering starting a second play through, as long as I can figure out the best way to move some Pokemon from my current save file into a new one.
Anyway, join me after the jump for a semi-review and six thoughts on Pokemon Sun and Moon!
Now that all the Pokemon Sun/Moon stuff has leaked, Nintendo has finally, officially released the details on the final starter evolutions. And just as I was getting used to the idea of that stupid wrestler cat, the actual video makes him look even worse.
He looks kind of shrimpy! Jeez louise. At least the name Incineroar is pretty cool.
Do you know which starter you’re going to pick in the new Pokemon game? Let me know in the comments!
The final starter evolutions for Pokemon Sun and Moon have not yet been officially released, but the Internet is a wily beast, and some data-miners were able to pull the sprite files from the recently hacked demo. Behold, the final starter evolutions!
I don’t like any of them.
These final starters were released months ago in a “leak”, but for the longest time, I denied them. I hoped they were just another fan-made bit of nonsense. I denied their truth for so long! But now there’s no getting around it. These are our final starters. I’m going to have to pick one of them for Sun and/or Moon.
I wanted to go with Litten, the fire cat. He was the coolest looking of the starters. But his final evolution is super dumb and ugly. Another fire/fighting Pokemon? And a big humanoid pro wrestler? Didn’t we just have that with the pig not two generations ago?!
Personally, I prefer animalistic Pokemon. I don’t like humanoids. Which means I should probably pick the owl or the seal, but I don’t like either of them! The owl just looks too busy, and I don’t like the idea of a flying starter. And I like the seal in concept, but not in execution. That thing clearly belongs in the water. How am I supposed to picture the seal following my Pokemon around? She’ll just be flopping along after me. I don’t want to break my mental role play!
So it looks like it’s gonna be me and that big, dumb fire cat wrestler thing…
The middle evolutions fort he new Pokemon starters have been revealed as part of the drip, drip, drip of new information for Pokemon Sun and Moon. I’m not exactly sure why they wait so long to reveal this stuff! Come on! I want to know for sure if I’ll be sticking with the Litten line or not!
So far, Litten and Torracat are the only ones I like, and he would be a sure thing…except I’ve seen those leaked images and I’m worried that Litten transforms into a giant, bipedal wrestler. I don’t want that! I want a cool, fire-breathing sabretoothed tiger!
I don’t even know who I’ll pick if Litten turns into that beefcake…
