A Return to Pokémon Go

maxresdefault (3)IT KIND OF WANTS YOU TO GO AWAY

When any meaningful updates seemed a long way away several months back, we kind of gave up on Pokémon Go. Our area simply offered too little of interest to keep playing and there wasn’t really any motivation other than the Pokémon you could catch and when we caught what was available, there was no real reason to continue. We weren’t having fun anymore.

Now, the second generation has been added as well as some daily rewards. Around the time of the previous global event, which massively increased the spawn rates of water-type Pokémon, we decided to give the game another shot.

So, having played the game fairly consistently for some time, what do we think?

Meh sums it up quite nicely.


Pokémon Sun and Moon Round-up 1: Evolutions and Trial Captains!


Welcome to part 1 of our round-up! In this part we’ll be addressing the older trailer and the Pokémon we’ve yet to go over. Part 2 will deal with the demo and Part 3 will deal with the latest trailer, so click on those if you’re interested.


Pokémon Sun and Moon: Starter Evolutions!


Let us briefly sum up the emotional rollercoaster we went on while we watched the trailer:

Yay-Shit-Yay-Shit-Yaaaaay-shit-yay-aw, son of a Bibarrel!

To say we’re conflicted is putting it mildly. This is a pretty great trailer, telling us a lot without spoiling it completely and even giving us a date for the upcoming demo. That being said, there’s also some things we found to be a bit disappointing.


Pokémon Sun and Moon Round-Up Part 1: The Pokémon



While the first months after the announcement of Pokémon Sun and Moon were a little devoid of news, it seems Gamefreak and Nintendo have decided to make up for that now by ensuring we’ve got a steady stream of information coming out.

There’s still a lot not clear, but we’ve got a good glimpse at the region and some of the creatures in it, including Tapu Koko, the protector of the island you’ll be starting out on.

Unfortunately other things got in the way at the time and we didn’t cover the news, so we’re doing a bit of a round-up now. How is this going to work? Well, this part will focus on the Pokémon revealed in the past few weeks. Part 2 will focus on (possible) new features we’ve glimpsed in the trailers.


Pokémon Sun and Moon: New Trailer, New Region and New legendaries!


Well, we’ve got a fair bit of information to work through. We got the name of this new region and saw a bit of it, got to know our starters and even met the two showcase legendaries.

Or…Well…We saw the legendaries, we just have no idea what they’re called yet. Either way, after a pretty long silence on the matter, we finally have new material to analyse and overthink!
