Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon have been here for almost a week, and although they are mostly what we expected, they represent great things for the franchise of Pokemon . Not long before both games were released, Game Freak revealed that [UltraUltrayUltraMoon is probably the latest Pokemon game for Nintendo's 3DS handheld device line. Presumably, that means that the next main line game from Pokemon will be made for the Switch.
This is a great move for the franchise of Pokemon . Since Pokemon Red and Green released on the original Game Boy in 1996, in Japan, Pokemon has been a purely manual matter. Although we have received some secondary games in consoles, Game Freak and Nintendo have maintained the mainline series in handheld systems for more than 20 years.
This has worked surprisingly well for Nintendo. Pokemon perhaps as much as Mario and certainly more than The Legend of Zelda is a systems marketer. Nintendo almost always sees an increase in sales of portable devices when a new game is released from Pokemon and I have no doubt that we will see the same thing with the switch every time this game is promised Pokemon ] is launched even after the ridiculously successful year, the Switch is closing.
Then, with such a big change in the store for the Pokemon series how [Ultraman and Ultra Moon end more than 20 years? of hand games? Although I have not finished my time with [UltraMoon yet, I have to say that, so far, he does a good job limiting this long series of releases.
READ MORE: Pokemon Sun and Moon Review Of course, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon were never turned into games. Like Pokemon Yellow Crystal Emerald and Platinum these are simply improved versions of existing games. Therefore, most of what they offer will be familiar to those who played Sun and Moon . That's not necessarily a bad thing, but no one should enter these games waiting for a new and fresh experience.
Still, the new adds enough to make Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon exciting to play, at least in my opinion. The amount of Pokémon that you can find in nature seems to have increased drastically, and their locations have also changed. If you remember your experience in Sun and Moon vividly, as in, if you remember having found a particular group of Pokémon on a particular route or island, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon shake it, making each new area fun to explore one more time.
However, the real changes come in the final game. Game Freak has packed Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon with all the legendary Pokémon that date from Red and Blue . We do not have access to mythical Pokémon like Mew or Jirachi, but historically, those have been limited to events, so that's nothing out of the ordinary. Add it to the appearances of the most important villains in the series as part of Team Rainbow Rocket, and Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon really feel like a love letter to fans who have stayed with the series during the last 20 years.
In that sense, these games are the perfect ending for the era of Pokemon's long handheld computers and tales . It really seems that Game Freak has done everything it can do with the limited power of the 3DS line, and with Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon now out there, it's time to move on to bigger and better things.
I'll have a more comprehensive review of Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon soon, but for now, I'm not only enjoying my second visit to the Alola region, but I'm also getting very excited about the future Game Freak has designed some excellent games for Nintendo handheld computers over the years, and I'll be waiting in advance to see what it can do with the Switch.
