Gamefreak has done it again. Exactly a month and a week has passed since the most recognizable franchise has returned with its latest installment. Releasing Pokemon Sun and Moon on November 18th, fans were continuously bombarded with leaks and trailers well before its official release date. Some were so eager to decide on their starter Pokemon based on the teasers, while others waited for further confirmation. Nonetheless, the game received much praise from both veterans and newcomers alike, topping this year’s holiday sales which is no surprise to the ongoing series. Based on Hawaii in real life, our hero embarks on a journey to the Alola region and is introduced to four different islands in order to catch ’em all. Taking on trials along the way, facing new totem Pokemon and much more!
In addition to the official strategy guide released in unison with the games, a second guide (standard and collector’s edition) is scheduled to be released in February 2017. It will contain the complete Alola region Pokedex as well as jam-packed information on postgame content, something many players overlook. But rest assured post game is worth the extra mile. From catching the guardian deities to assisting Detective Looker in solving the Ultra beasts mystery, look no further! Whether players want to complete their pokedex or concentrate on enhancing the story, the Official Alola Pokedex and Postgame Guide is a must-have for every Trainer.
The year of 2o16 also marked the 20th anniversary of Pokemon, originally released in Japan as Red and Green on February 27, 1996. The franchise expanded overseas to the Americas as Red and Blue in 1998 gaining much popularity as it encouraged players to battle and trade Pokemon with other trainers. This led to various sequels and spin-offs illustrated through games, manga, animated films, toys and trading cards.
Pokemon Sun and Moon is available now worldwide for the Nintendo 3DS and 2DS systems.
