Following in the tradition of previous games in the Pokémon series, players choose one of three special Pokémon to be their first partner. These are among the first Pokémon players will encounter in the game. In Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, players will be able to choose between the newly discovered Grass- and Flying-type Pokémon Rowlet, Fire-type Litten, and Water-type Popplio.

For a Pokémon Trainer, knowing the Pokémon types and how they match up against one another in battle is vital. Grass-type Pokémon are strong against Water types, but weak against Fire types. Fire-type Pokémon are strong against Grass types and weak against Water types. And Water-type Pokémon are strong against Fire types, but weak against Grass types.

The first of the potential partners is the highly adaptable Grass Quill Pokémon, Rowlet. This Pokémon can fly silently through the skies, sneaking up on its opponent without being noticed. It can attack its opponents using powerful kicks, and it can also attack from a distance using the razor-sharp leaves that form part of its feathers. Rowlet can survey its environment and turn its neck nearly 180 degrees from front to back, so it can see directly behind itself. When in battle, Rowlet turns its head to face its Trainer when waiting for instructions.

The cool-headed Fire Cat Pokémon, Litten, is the next choice for a first-partner Pokémon. Litten's fur is rich in oils and is immensely flammable. It constantly grooms itself by licking its coat, collecting loose fur into balls. It then ignites these hairballs to create fireball attacks. When the time comes for Litten to molt, it burns off all of its fur in one glorious blaze.

The third possibility is the acrobatic Sea Lion Pokémon, Popplio. Popplio can create balloons made of water from its nose and utilize them to create a variety of different strategies and attacks in battle. This Pokémon is better at moving in the water than on land, and can swim at speeds over 25 mph. On land, it uses the elasticity of the balloons it creates to perform jumps and acrobatic stunts.

Still quite fun

Reviewed by on (Verified Buyer)

Personally the new island trials was somewhat of a turnoff; i love my gym badges man. The game itself is still quite fun as all main Pokemon games usually are. It does however, leave you wanting just a bit as the game is somewhat shorter, the map smaller and the end game not as diverse.

Good clean fun

Reviewed by on

This is probably the most fun you will have out of all the Pokemon options out there. Graphics are good, mechanics are a lot better than previous versions and the possibility of having previous gen Pokemon is great.

If you ever wanted to play this type of genre, this will be the one! No disappointments here!

Great game

Reviewed by on

All pokemon games are pretty much the same this one is abit different gyms are replaced with the Island challenge .The battle animations are brilliant and the music is the amazing .The graphics pushed my 2ds to its limits so better to play it on the 3ds or 2dsxl models .My only gripe is the game is really short compared to other games in the series and it would be nice if you could chose a difficulty setting.

Very enjoyable

Reviewed by on

Very fun game with a nice story. Quite slow and dialogue heavy at the beginning. It is easier than older Pokemon games but is at the same time a nice fresh take on the Pokemon series. Good way for people to get into the series but still very fun for long time fans.

Its awesome

Reviewed by on

Its a very solid game. Nice gameplay, nice story. The only problem is that it starts very slow in the beginning but still a must have if your a pokemon fan.

A good game, but has some faults

Reviewed by on

It is definitely a fun game. Though it does lack some features and game mechanics that make other versions memorable.
All in all, it can be enjoyed if you don't over analyse it.
