This is probably my least favorite game, the island trials are way too easy to the point of being annoying, SOS battles wouldn't be annoying if you could just throw a pokeball with more then one pokeball on the field it just makes catching pokemon a pain in the butt. Finally the complete lack of diversity when it comes to wild pokemon you get only five in every new location and each one of them usually already has a yongoose or pikkapek.

This, absolutely.


Anyway, I've just completed the third Grand Trial against Nanu. Time to enter the climax of the game! Finally, Ninetales has joined the team. Unless I see something exciting to possibly replace Gumshoos, my team should be set for the rest of the game.

And for that team, I have these Pokémon:
NINETALES ALOLA (Krystal) - Lv. 41 @ Amulet Coin
LURANTIS (Prayer) - Lv. 39 @ Grassium Z
RIBOMBEE (Bee Fly) - Lv. 39 @ Buginium Z
INCINEROAR (O'Malley) - Lv. 38 @ Incinium Z
GUMSHOOS (Rikki-Tikki) - Lv. 39 @ Normalium Z
LYCANROC MIDDAY (Balto) - Lv. 41 @ Rockium Z

Play Time: 55:48
Pokédex: 91/180 (plus a few not in the Alola Pokédex)
Money: 192,176
Grand Trials: 3
Z-Crystals: 11 (on the save screen)
Pages Completed: 4/15
Thumbs Up: ~440,000
Ride Pokémon: 6

I got Moon the night it was released, via digital download. It's pretty cool, I beat it in about 4 days. I didn't have much trouble with the story... though the ending scene was bittersweet in my opinion. I started with Rowlet.
As of right now, I'm building a quick competitive team before pokemon bank's release. It consists of Decidiueye, ....... and that's it so far.
XD I am loving pokepelago for the berry harvest feature. Now it's so easy to get the EV reset berries in high abundance now, so if anyone need some, hit me up, iite?
I basically was curious about the IV judge thing, so I mass bred Rowlets till I got enough to "Wake up" the Judge. Turns out my entire story team was crap. XD
OH! In the midst of one of my berry hunts, I ran across my very first shiny of the 7th gen: Crabrawler.
In conclusion, I give this game a good B+. If Nintendo trailers of the new pokemon didn't show almost the entire roster of Alolan pokemon as well as the Alolan adaptations of the Kanto pokemon, I probably would have not felt as spoiled. I guess that's my fault though.

Now.... that's out of the way. Hello VR! Long time no chat!

EDIT: I HATE Battle Royale. Unfortunately, it's the only way I can get the power items...
Give me back Rotation and Triple battles.
And with that, including Magmaster's post that really did illuminate several other cons that I just noticed, The grade of this game has now dropped to C+ for me.

My brother and I split the cost of the double pack the night it came out, and while it's not my all-time favorite Pokemon game, I personally feel like it was a pretty solid game. The story was great (Even though I figured out a lot of the twists, and I agree on the bittersweet ending), I like almost all the new Pokemon designs, and I LOVE the Poke Pelago.

I was slightly disappointed when I found Triple and Rotation battles were taken out, but honestly it was probably easier for them to take them out altogether than figure out how to keep SOS battles to strictly two Pokemon. I haven't tried much of either the Battle Tree or the Battle Royale yet, but I don't really have much interest in them.

My feelings on SOS battles are a little mixed, but thanks to them I got my first ever shiny! A shiny Carbink in fact. Currently racing a friend to try and get a shiny Sandygast, and also filling up my pokedex to get the shiny charm. EDIT: As I was SOS chaining to get an Espeon before it became nighttime ingame, I also happened to stumble across a Shiny Eevee! So that's my first... does it count as a Random encounter if I was SOS chaining for something else? I dunno.

A few (very) minor complaints:

- Some of the clothing styles/colors are exclusive to game versions as well as being locked by gender... why? The only way to get them is to use FC in the Festival Plaza, and they aren't cheap either!

- I feel like the main character could have shown a little more emotion during certain cutscenes.

- Despite the rather long 'tutorial' section at the beginning of the game, there are a few new mechanics that aren't very well explained, such as the fact that Totem Pokemon aren't the only ones that can call for help during a battle (Though it could be that I just missed the NPC that spells that out for you).

- I felt like the Trials could have provided a bit of a better challenge. I thought Kiawe's trial was hilarious though.

And that's it! I've completed the story. I must say that it was quite an enjoyable game, and the writing was very clever. I smiled a lot while playing and genuinely felt like the story was well put together. I had to use everyone to pull through the Pokémon League.

And here is my final team:
NINETALES ALOLA (Krystal) - Lv. 57 @ Icium Z
LURANTIS (Prayer) - Lv. 57 @ Grassium Z
RIBOMBEE (Bee Fly) - Lv. 56 @ Fairium Z
INCINEROAR (O'Malley) - Lv. 58 @ Incinium Z
GUMSHOOS (Rikki-Tikki) - Lv. 54 @ Normalium Z
LYCANROC MIDDAY (Balto) - Lv. 59 @ Rockium Z

Play Time: 66:15
Pokédex: 103/245 (plus a few not in the Alola Pokédex)
Money: 260,496
Z-Crystals: 17 (on the save screen, missing Psychic)
Pages Completed: 6/15
Thumbs Up: ~533,000
Ride Pokémon: 7

It sure took me forever, but after two months, I finally have Pokémon Moon! Just started it and now I think I'm in it with my favourite potato bird.

Urgh, aside from finishing Pokémon Sun I have done next to nothing Pokémon related. I can't remember the last time I went this long without playing it, it's weird, but I have next to no motivation to get into competitive in Gen 7 :S

The 7th gen battle Competitions are getting pretty tricky and harder after each one that comes. Im starting to like bewear and with assault vest, this thing is a beast against the right pokemons, also i kinda started to like Tapu Lele as well, that thing hits like a truck.
