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 Pirates Banned

THE ROM, THE BAN AND THE HILARIOUS WHINING

Well, we did mention that Nintendo was out for blood.

Reports are coming in from a number of people who pirated Pokémon Sun and Moon and they’re not good. While they’ve been able to play the games well in advance of release for a while, but their fun was ended with a single error message.

Few sights inspire such an immediate sense of “Aw, fuck.”

Pokémon Sun and Moon – Final Trailer

4 DAYS TO GO! (…Sort of)

Well, we’re almost there. Pokémon Sun and Moon is just days away for those who ordered it instead of downloading the leaked file. At least it is for you damn Americans. Us Europeans have to wait for the 23rd because…actually we never got a reason. We’re therefore forced to assume that someone yelled “Fuck Europe!” during a Nintendo board meeting and nobody challenged him.

Now Nintendo has released one last trailer before the official launch date and it seems they actually still hadn’t quite told us everything.

WELL, THAT WAS FAST.

It was probably inevitable, but we were honestly hoping it would take a little longer. Pokémon Moon has been fully leaked and a playable file can be downloaded by those who can find it!

Pokémon Sun and Moon Round-up 3: The Latest Trailer!

IT’S NOT FIRE/FIGHTING, IT’S NOT FIRE/FIGHTING, IT’S NOT FIRE/FIGHTING!

Welcome to the final part of our round-up! Part 1 talked about an earlier trailer and part 2 about the demo available in the eShop.

A few days ago we got a new trailer with some pretty special Pokémon. Not only did it show off the protectors for the remaining three islands, but it also showed us the final evolutions of our starter Pokémon!

The bad news: The Chinese leak was basically 100% correct and we still don’t really like these designs much.

The good news: Litten’s final evolution is not Fire/Fighting!

Pokémon Sun and Moon: Starter Evolutions!

ANOTHER GLIMPSE OF OUR PARTNERS!

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: New Pokémon, Ultra Beasts and the Aether Foundation!

TELLING US A LOT, WITHOUT TELLING US MUCH

Another trailer, another load of information to go through! We are noticing a bit of a pattern by now of the trailers throwing concepts at our head with no real details, which is getting a bit annoying, but there are clearly some new things we can talk about.

Pokémon Sun and Moon: Pokémon, Theories and Rumors

SOME CERTAINTY AND A FAIR BIT OF SPECULATION

So, another trailer hit the net and we have some new Pokémon to talk about. However, that’s not the only thing we’ll be doing. We’ve not really talked about fan theories or anything of the sort yet, as those are generally disproven, but a few were either detailed enough to be interesting or still haven’t been entirely debunked.

As such, we’ll look at the new Pokémon first and then talk about some theories and rumours.
