So far, Nintendo’s 20th Anniversary Celebration of the Pokémon franchise has been nothing short of stuffed. Owners of the Nintendo 3DS games have received a single free creature a month. The festivities reached party status when Nintendo unveiled re-releases of the original three games, Pokémon Blue, Pokémon Yellow and Pokémon Red. There’s a free mobile version of Pokémon coming in the form of Pokémon Go. All of this comes to a fantastic conclusion later this year when the Pokémon Sun and Moon release date arrives.
Nintendo has two all-new games planned for owners of its Nintendo 2DS and Nintendo 3DS consoles. The new games include new creatures, all-new mechanics, a new region and fresh starter Pokémon. Pokémon Sun and Moon are this year’s most interesting titles from Nintendo and, arguably, the most exciting things coming during the 20th Anniversary Celebration for Pokémon. That is, besides the legendary creatures Nintendo is giving to players of the franchise at regular intervals already.
Here’s everything we know about Pokémon Sun and Moon feature-wise. GameStop, Best Buy and other major retailers are already taking pre-orders ahead of release. Shoppers looking to save a lot on the games through Amazon Prime and Best Buy’s Gamers Club Unlocked program.
