Pokemon Sun Walkthrough, Guide and Tips


Last Updated:

Pokemon Sun is apart of the first installment of Pokemon Games - the other being Pokemon Moon - introducing the Seventh Generation of Pokemon. It has a worldwide release on November 18, 2016, with a Special Demo Version released exactly one month prior to. Like the generation of Pokemon Games before it, it too is exclusive to the Nintendo 2DS & 3DS Models. Players can either purchase a physical hard copy of the game in Stores or online, or a digital copy of such from the Nintendo eShop on any 2DS or 3DS for the same cost.

The game is set to take place in the New Region of Alola, a place that closely mirrors that of Hawaii in the real world. There are also many isles that make up this region that the player is allowed to venture through; again, something that very much so resembles the Hawaiian Islands in the Pacific. Almost the same exact culture and feel is found in the games from the real-life location. This is easily shown in how people in the region greet each other by saying "Alola," a similar catch phrase to the famous "Aloha."

But unlike many Pokemon Games from earlier generations before it, Pokemon Sun is shaping up to be something completely different from the usual, repetitive norm seen from one generation to the next in the past, so much so where older fans might have a bit of a cultural shock (hopefully good) when playing.

This begins with none other than there being no Pokemon Gyms or Pokemon League (Elite Four) found in the region, but instead Trial Leaders that are preset with Battles and Tasks to see how strong you're trainer is becoming. There are also New Forms found for many Pokemon from older generations. Much like how different species have different appearance and traits when found in one geographical area and climate to the next in the real world, so these given Pokemon have in this game. These New Alolan Forms have cause these older Pokemon to "adapt to their given environment" in order to survive - IE Survival of the Fittest - causing them to change in both appearance and typing as Time has advanced.

Many other New concepts are also being introduced in Pokemon Sun. For one, both it and its counterpart Pokemon Moon will have a different eternal Time clock. (When it is morning in one game, it will be nighttime in the other). This is something that has never been done with a pair of games before for the Pokemon Franchise, but a move (hopefully) to keep things different and unique from one game to the next. These games will also be the first to ever connect to the Generational Games before it (X, Y, Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire) and the First Generation Games (Digital 3DS Copies of Red, Blue & Yellow).

There will also be the creation of New Pokemon called Ultra Beasts and Island Guardians found within this game. These are Pokemon that are extremely powerful and match closely to Legendary and Mythical Pokemon in their Stats, but yet still don't receive the title of such. Also included will be New Moves called Z-Moves, incredibly powerful Attacks that, like Mega Evolutions, can only be done once within Battle. New special Forms like Zygarde Complete, Ash-Greninja and Ash-Pikachu will also be found in Pokemon Sun.

But even with all these changes and New aspects being incorporated within Pokemon Sun, there will still be many components in the plot that will remain true to the Pokemon Spirit. A trainer will continue to explore a new region while training their Pokemon and trying to complete their Pokedex (new Rotom Pokedex), they will still have friends and rivals challenge them along the way, and, of course, they will ultimately have to stop the evil antagonist group causing trouble in the region.

This Time around, a player must stop the troublesome Team Skull from causing havoc in The Alola Region, eventually having to defeat them at the end of the first storyline before they can harness the power of the Legendary Mascot of the game (Solgaleo for Pokemon Sun). Contrary to previous antagonist groups so well organized and business-like, however, Team Skull is a completely New breed on its own. The trainers in this group have a unique look some would have never thought would be found in the World of Pokemon, a group with an uncanny resemblance to a real-world inner city gang. Yet still, it is on a much lower, age-appropriate, animated and fun sort of level.

If nothing else, Pokemon Moon will surely be a New look for the Pokemon Industry, a breath of new (and fingers-crossed good) life to a rather simple concept that has been around for over two decade.
