    Just to nitpick, Omegy Ruby/Alpha Sapphire had the bank accessible from day one. And what a joy that was.

    Digging through videos on character customization and... the cornrows for both genders look laughably terrible, while all the boy's hairstyles came off as "meh" to me. Probably going with the girl's romantic tuck style.

    Care to share?

    And what's this thing about "shiny hunting"? Do they do something extra beyond being a different colour?

    The VGC ran a Hoenn only rule where Pokebank Pokemon were unusable and banned; essentially what they are currently doing with Alola.


    @Ansible Regarding Shiny hunting, shiny Pokemon have no benefits other than just a color scheme.
    Some just look quite appealing to the eye. Hunting for them can also be quite tedious without using a specific method.

    If I cared about that, I'm sure that'd be notable. As it stands I don't even know what VGC stands for. As someone strictly on the casual side of things, you know, like a lot of pokemon players, that bugs me slightly.


    Thanks to the wonders of the Pokemon Bank, I played through Alpha Sapphire with a level 5 Mew that I had stored away for 4 years. That was a one-of-a-kind, magical experience that would have never happened otherwise, and I want to play more of these games like that :p As for shinies, they're palette swaps. Same mon, different colors. People lose their minds over this for some reason, I've never understood the appeal myself. Some shiny colorations are hideous as well - Dragonite, I'm looking at you.

    The acronym VGC stands for Video Game Championship, where PokeBank was not allowed near the early release of "ORAS", ergo why it is not allowed once again this year for Sun and Moon. (Partly a reason why it is being delayed.)

    On another note, This game is quite enjoyable as anticipated. I'm loving the fashion choices.

    Well that's boring. Ah well.

    I'm still working on the tutorial segments. Seems longer than usual, almost. Hopefully they'll make that optional someday, maybe with a "Do you know what you're doing? > yes > Are you SURE? > yes" prompt.

    I didn't mean to imply that it was excusable. Just that it was a probable reason for limited save files.

    No worries.

    Anyway, I'm digging it so far, as always I appreciate the little improvements, like being able to add caught mons to the party regardless of team status and the computer going directly to the boxes (cause no one uses the deposit and withdraw functions).

    Gotta say, the game scared the bejeesus out of me last night. I was playing at midnight when the clock ticked over to the next day, and well, today's my birthday. I head to the pokemon center to heal, and the lights stop turning on. Then they flash and there's confetti and congratulations. Thanks Nintendo but the way that went down I thought my game crashed and I hadn't saved in a while, eesh! :p

    What moron at game freak thought that wild pokemon being able to call for help was a good idea? It just makes pokemon catching unbelievably tedious! I'm trying to catch something, it summoned another fricking mon, and EVERY SINGLE TIME I kill the other one it IMMEDIATELY summons another before I can act! I kill the first one, the new one starts doing it! After the eighth summon of this particular fight I just turned the game off, that is such a bullshit mechanic and it puts me off trying to catch anything.

    Well, that's it for me. Reached my breaking point, put the game back in it's box and on the shelf.

    Go to catch a magby, a farking BABY POKEMON, with my Cubone that's 12 levels higher, and this leads to a long drawn out fight where I can't run or switch because of fire spin, Cubone's damage is nerfed because it got burned, and every time I killed one of the magby horde it was immediately replaced. Cubone got killed by baby pokemon. Nope, not having it, since this nonsense will just continue throughout the game.

    So that's that. Hope it goes better for all of you!

    I juuuust got it and the Sun/Moon New 3DS XL since I never got a 3DS. I've played for like 5 minutes, don't even a pokemon yet, and I'm itching for a map so that I can start adventuring. Even minutes in I already like the details in the world like detail text on your family Meowth's cat toys.

    I do wish GameFreak would work on those Pokemon noises though ... they still sound like 8bit death screeches.

    So, I picked up Moon at release and I kinda beat it in 4 days. It was such a refreshing game for such a stale series. I loved seeing all of the new crazy Pokemon and the level of difficulty was actually satisfactory this time around. I hope GameFreak continues to do different things with Pokemon. Also, for the anime, I hope that this could be the last time we see Ash but y'know... he's immortal and all and a great punching bag whenever he enters a league.

    Lol, I played a bit of Splatoon in between periods when my 3ds was charging. I just couldn't bear to be apart from my Lycanroc-Midnight form for more than a few hours.

    Alola, Folks. ♪
    Hope you're all enjoying the latest Sun & Moon game!

    I bring you current news regarding Sun & Moon related things:
    As usual taken straight from serebii.

    In The Games Department
    Nintendo Badge Arcade

    The free piece of Nintendo 3DS software, Nintendo Badge Arcade, had its weekly update in North America and with this update, it has added several Pokémon badges based on Pokémon Sun & Pokémon Moon, all of which were previously released in Japan.

    Example of some:

    That is all for now.
    Happy gaming! ♪

    Just now starting. Is it me or are we not able to take in-game screenshots?

    A few quick thoughts
    • Still not sure if I like the camera. Kinda reminds me of the camera work in early Playstation 1 era games, though refined.
    • We'll see if I run into the call for help shenanigans soon. Hearing that as a MAJOR complaint throughout.
    • The refresh, pet care thingy is amusing, but probably can get tedious later on.
    • I gain a stall in my festival plaza. "What's this about breeding? Thump-Bump Park... looks like I'm gonna have hours of innuendo filled fun!"
    • In many games I will run around in tiny circles. This game does that and turns it into a twirl!! ♥♥

    I got over my poke-hump with the help of some advice from a friend. Quick balls are love :p Call for help battles aren't a problem when my choices are success or murder.

    Can I just say that I love all of the new pokemon? ALL of them, alolan variants included. People complain about the small pokemon counts, but I think that works in their favor, they've been going for quality over quantity. Lots of new signature moves too! The personality in this tropical bunch of beasts is fantastic. This game has some serious problems mechanically (Festival Plaza should be burned to the ground), but the setting and characters are top-notch!

    Also Alolan Persian is a wonderful money-making tank and will always be my team's frontrunner :p
