After the worldwide phenomenon of Pokémon GO, the next big Pokémon event has arrived!. Pokémon fans and newcomers alike can escape to the wonderful region of Alola in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, out now exclusively for Nintendo 3DS family systems.
Players will begin their Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon adventures soon after their character moves to Alola, a beautiful region featuring four vast tropical islands and one artificial island. They’ll soon meet Professor Kukui and a cast of memorable characters as they explore the region and look to conquer each island’s Trial. In Alola, humans and Pokémon coexist in a close relationship, resulting in a culture very different to that of other regions – and a truly new Pokémon experience for players!
Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon’s beautiful Alola region, charming characters and grand adventure have already seen it become a sales success in the US and Japan and earned critical praise from media:
- “One of the best video games ever made” – 9/10, metro.co.uk
- “Pokémon Sun and Moon is the ultimate Poké adventure” – 5/5, Digital Spy
- “Sun and Moon both honour the 20-year legacy of Pokémon and improve upon it” – 9/10, IGN
As well as the single-player adventure players can enjoy the new Battle Royal multiplayer mode. Four Trainers compete in an exciting free-for-all battle pitting their best Pokémon against each other with the victor declared based on how many opposing Pokémon they have defeated. Further details on Battle Royal mode and many more of Pokémon Sun and Moon’s features can be found on the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon website.
