Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon Review

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon are the lastest entries in the Pokemon series and are the third versions of this generation of Pokemon. Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon add some new features to the game such as Mantine ride. In Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon you’re also able to catch most legendary Pokemon such as Dialga and Reshiram. Of course, these legendary Pokemon are version exclusive.

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon also adds a Battle Agency which allows you to rent Pokemon and battle other trainers. If you are familiar with the Battle Factory in Pokemon Emerald and Platinum and you liked it then you’ll probably like the Battle Agency. That being said I personally wasn’t a fan of this new Battle Agency. It felt like an “Inferior” version of the Battle Factory to me.

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon also add some new Ultra Beast. I did think they should have added a bit more but getting new Pokemon in third version Pokemon game was definitely a nice surprise.

The Story in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon is mostly the same. Which is a bit of a shame. I felt like I was playing Pokemon Sun and Moon again up until a certain point. There are still too many cutscenes and Hau is still as annoying as ever. That being said you do get your starters quicker in this game which is a bit nice. 

Team Rainbow Rocket is the best thing about these games. Being able to fight different evil team leaders from other regions was great and I applaud GameFreak for creating Team Rainbow Rocket. 

They also updated the soundtrack in this game with some new tracks. The Necromza battle theme is magnificent but I was not a fan of the new trainer battle theme.

I’m going to be really honest here. Not a lot of content was added. The lack of new Alolan forms is very strange in my opinion. You’d expect GameFreak to add new Alolan forms in these games.

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon feel more like Emerald than Black and White 2 which isn’t a bad thing but I was kind of expecting “more”. What made Black and White 2 so great is GameFreak added a brand new story with lots of new areas and a good post game. Ultra Sun and Moon also still run poorly on the 3DS.

GameFreak didn’t really fix any of Sun and Moon’s problems. Sun and Moon were excellent games when they first came out but they still had there fair share of issues. And GameFreak barely fixed any of them in these games.

I think it would be best if GameFreak ditched the whole third version thing completely. They did it last generation and it was great. In this day and age, third versions aren’t needed.

Ultra Sun and Moon are great games if you haven’t played Sun and Moon but if you have played the original Sun and Moon then I 100% recommend you skip these games as they don’t really add anything new and wait for Pokemon Switch in 2018 or 2019.

A disappointing Follow-Up to the original Pokemon Sun and Moon. Not enough new content was added in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon
