Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon


Jack Purcell, Reporter

Any Pokémon player would know that the Sun and Moon games changed the way many people looked at Pokémon games. It added many features like Z-moves, Trials instead of gyms, a new type of Pokémon called Ultra Beasts, a new way to interact with Pokemon in game, and it is also the longest Pokemon game so far.

On Friday, November 17th Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon came out. It will include more features like new Ultra Beasts, and new Z-moves, and will introduce an old enemy, Team Rocket. However, Pokémon Sun and Moon got rid of a very big feature, gyms.

Gyms were here since the very beginning, ever since Ash met Pikachu. You get eight gym badges and you can enter the Pokemon league. Sun and Moon turned gyms into something called trials. There is a final boss at the end of every trial and once you beat it you learn a new Z-move.

Some people have said that Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will be the last pokémon games for the 3ds. I am not exactly sure if that is true but if it is I am hoping Nintendo will either make a new handheld console called the 4ds where it vibrates when something hits the ground or makes a loud sound. Or something rotates or moves when you shake it or tilt it up or down. Or another theory is that they will add a Pokémon game on the new Nintendo Switch with better graphics and amazing new features.

Personally, I think I will get Ultra Sun Mostly because I would always play on Pokémon Moon so I want to know what the difference really is. I am very excited to catch new pokémon and meet new allies in the Alola region!
