REVIEW: Pokémon Ultra Sun/Moon (3DS)




Originally written for a publication on February 2nd 2018, never published

Developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo, Ultra Sun/Moon are the latest pair of Pokémon games to hit the Nintendo 3DS. Rather than being brand new standalone titles, they’re enhanced versions of Pokémon Sun/Moon released back in late 2016 and they feature a modified storyline, additional features and new characters and creatures.

You play as an 11-year-old child who has moved to Melemele Island with their parents. Like Sun/Moon, you travel the various islands of the Alola region to complete trials and challenges in order to be crowned the League Champion. Your journey isn’t always easy though, as you’re specifically being targeted by various enemy teams known as Team Skull, the Aether Foundation and the Ultra Recon Squad as they try attempt to wreak havoc.
