As Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon’s release date draws ever closer the reviews have started to pour in on online review aggregation site, Metacritic. The latest Pokémon adventure currently sits at 88 Metascore with a few publications claiming that it’s one of the best Pokémon games, ever. Pokemon Sun & Moon is due to be released on November 23rd in Europe and November 18th in North America.
Pokémon Sun and Moon is the ultimate Poké adventure. It manages to introduce a lot of new features that greatly enhance the gameplay experience, but retain enough of the original DNA to make sure it doesn’t feel totally alien to players who have been Pokémon trainers since 1996.
After 20 years of slow but steady evolution, Pokemon gets a bit of a reinvention in Sun and Moon. An engrossing and rich new region makes the Alola journey — along with all the changes Sun and Moon make to the existing formula — enjoyable throughout the main adventure, and small interface and variety of upgrades along the way make a few of the things that stayed the same feel better than before.
