Pokémon Sun and Moon has got to be one of the most highly anticipated video game releases of the year, and the first new game in the hugely popular franchise in two years. For the first time in the history of Pokémon, they’re trying something new rather than simply tweaking the details of the familiar storyline about battling trainers in gyms. The adventure began with the release of the demo on October 18, exactly one month before the game’s release date, where the focus is on Ash-Greninja, the Pokémon from the animated TV series, Pokémon the Series: XYZ. Pokémon series producer, director and composer, Junichi Masuda, and first-time director, Shigeru Ohmori, wanted to create something new with Sun and Moon. They’ve taken a different route to arrive at Pokémon battles. In Sun and Moon, the play is more like quests than the usual series of trainer versus trainer battles. Players battle the environment and powerful bosses called Totem Pokémon, who can call in allies and use combination attacks. It means that Sun and Moon has a lot to offer existing Pokémon fans as well as newcomers to the franchise.
