Poké­mon Sun / Moon

Hyper - - FEATURE -

Poké­mon Sun/Moon did not rein­vent Poké­mon, but it cer­tainly proved that the se­ries could try some new things with­out sac­ri­fic­ing the core ex­pe­ri­ence peo­ple liked so much. Alola is a lovely set­ting, and it felt like se­ries de­vel­op­ers Game Freak were hav­ing fun work­ing through some new ideas. Gyms were out, re­placed with ‘tri­als’, and the story shifted into a weirder gear - the Ul­tra Beasts and ven­tures into other di­men­sions made for a Poké­mon game that left us qui­etly ex­cited for the se­ries’ fu­ture. Ul­tra Sun and Moon it­er­ated even fur­ther, of course, but Sun and Moon felt fresh.
