Game Review - Pokémon Sun on Nintendo 3DS

Written by MudkipNinja on April 15, 2017 @ 7:16 pm

A great game overall, Pokemon Sun was one I was really excited for. Being a fan of Pokemon since I was 7, I was ready to tackle new adventures in the Alola region, but I wasn't prepared for the roller coaster of a story it brought me on!

The first half of the game was pretty cool with the introduction of the new "trial" system replacing the traditional gyms. It took me a while to get a hang of the new Z-Crystal mechanic as well, but once I did, I really enjoyed watching my Pokemon pull off overpowered moves in a brief cinematic animation each time. Taking full advantage of the GTS immediately, my team was quickly formed from all 3 starters, a Misdreavus and interchanging Pokemon caught around the colorful region.

I ended up putting the game down around Christmas break, but picked it back up in early April of the next year because I realized i hadn't finished. Good thing I did too. After the third island battle with the Kahuna, the story immediately picks up speed and throws you on a whirlwind of an adventure right until you beat the newly appointed Elite Four and become the Champion of Alola.

While I won't spoil anything, the end of the game was so beautiful, I was brought to tears, and even when the credits were rolling I was recalling my entire journey in the Alola region. I know that there is still a little post-game stuff to go through, and believe me, I will, but without the post-game, the whole story was seriously worth playing. A must play for all Pokemon fans.
