Even though the first game came out in the U.S. in 1998, Nintendo is still producing new games in this legendary franchise. The latest games are Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.

What is Different About The New Pokemon Sun and Moon Games

In this latest iteration of Pokémon, you find yourself in a new region – Alola. Based on Hawaii, this tropical region is unlike any of the regions seen so far, and as always, is inhabited with new Pokémon to catch and battle.

New Pokemon Characters and Forms

In fact, there are now 81 new Pokémon – including new forms of existing ones. The new forms of pre-existing Pokémon are known as Alola forms, having adapted to the new environments of these regions with different types, moves, and appearances to their previous generation counterparts.

For example, the Vulpix from Red and Blue is a fire type, and can learn fire moves. The Alolan Vulpix is an ice type, who can learn ice moves, and is a snowy white instead of red-orange.

Another new addition to the game is the Rotom Pokédex. The Pokédex has been in every game so far, and acts as an encyclopedia of every Pokémon that you have seen or captured, including a description of each one.

Goals of the Pokemon Sun and Moon Video Games

One of the major goals of the game after becoming the Champion of the region is to fill up your Pokédex – hence the franchise’s slogan, “Gotta Catch ‘Em All.” In Pokémon Sun and Moon, you have a new Pokédex inhabited by an electric Pokémon, Rotom.

This gives your Pokédex its own personality, and it also updates you on objectives to complete, which you get through talking with other people. It even gives you a detailed map that you can see constantly on the bottom screen of the 3DS, where previously you had to open your bag and grab a map out of it to see where you were.

Full Movement Controls have been Added to the Game

A few new mechanics were added to the game as well. First, players will notice that they are no longer restricted to 4 or 8 directions like previous games – they have full movement control.

This, combined with the improved 3D models of the players, makes the game feel much more like a regular console game than a handheld game. Other new mechanics include Z-Moves, which are very powerful moves that combine the strength of the trainer and the Pokémon – only useable once per battle.

There are also SOS Battles, Poké Rides, QR codes scanning, and so much more. Pokémon Sun and Moon is a great game for anyone – whether they’ve just picked up Pokémon or they’ve been a fan since the 90s.
