Great to see these games are reviewing well. I'm hyped.
However, people who want to see a botw-type Pokemon open-world revolutionary will be quite disappointed, especially since the current formula is doing well commercially AND critically.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Has anyone been playing through Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon lately? How far are you and what Pokémon have you caught and trained?

Uh, well, in order to have that kind of game it would probably require it being on the Switch, which ultra are not, therefore who really knows what the Switch game will look like?

Either way, I didn't buy sun/moon because of the NX rumors of the third version, but since we dont even have an announcement or rough date estimation for Pokemon Switch, it makes sense to buy the ultras (especially considering I'm pretty excited for the story and return of team rocket and all the other bad guys). I still don't know if this is a sequel story, something else entirely, or like a 3rd version treatment of sun/moon story, though. I would love some clarification on that.

I haven't finished the game yet as I've been to busy to straight up" binge" play the game so I couldn't say exactly. But I do know it is not a sequel, you don't need to play the first game to play this one (in fact it might be better if you haven't). I think it's like a 3rd version treatment of the sun/moon story (an alternate take with some changes and additions) then a whole new story arc at the end after you become champion which didn't appear at all, the Team Rainbow Rocket stuff. Then on top of that all the changes to the over world and new features. Not 100% still need to fully play the game.

Anyone know if the national dex is in the game?



Wow, is it just me, or is the difficulty stepped up in this game? Most of the totem's were actually somewhat challenging to me. Lurantis overcame a fire-type z-move from my torracat and managed to beat it, with the sunny day/synthesis/solar blade combo, The the totems are harder than like 95% of gym leaders ever, which I like.

Currently running incineroar-totem sized araquanid-zoroark-manectric, and plan to complete the team with ub-adhesive and totem-sized kommo-o.

Totem stickers might only be a minor change, but I like it so much more over zygarde cells.
