Pokemon Sun was okay. Although I started playing in December I beat the pokemon league in May because there wasn't THAT much motivation to get back to itand I still have yet to collect the legendaries and defeat Red and the gang and that sort of thing.Now the game itself is quite easy. It was interesting of them to give you a Rotomdex; that is, Rotom is essentially your Fi or Navi or Midna if you're familiar with Zelda games-but that feature also made me a little lazy. Every time I turned on the game Rotom reminded me of where to go since he even has a map with the destination written on it! That's very coddling in my opinion, and while I become familiar with almost every city and route in other pokemon games while playing through, I still don't quite remember where things are in Sun and Moon because I didn't have to. They point you there anyway. So I will spend about five minutes flying on Charizard from place to place until I realize that I should probably take the ferry/ship to another (guessed) island because what I'm looking for isn't here.The best part of the game to me was Team Skull; they were really funny in the sense that Game Freak knew how lightly the ""bad guys"" are taken by the players anyway so they took the liberty to show that through their lines. That being said, because of Team Skull's humor I saw early on that Aether Foundation was suspicious. Skull was too non-threatening and disorganized to be the true threat, so even if Aether acted like perfect citizens something felt off. There's also questions I had about the deeper motives behind Aether funding Skull; I believe there's always something deeper when money is involved between two parties. Then the leaders of those two parties blindly jump into another dimension together with these strange pokemon they've barely seen? And one is older, has more influence and power than the other? But I keep that to myself.Also, although the dimensional lore and such is being expanded through the events and tidbits from this game, the plot is basically oriented around Lillie. That's not bad at all-you don't have to be the main/most important character all the time, but yes, Sun and Moon is Lillie's story which can be summarized as""Mom, what are you doing?""""Mom, STAHP!""And Lillie learning to stand up for herself and stop being a helpless child all the time. Although my character is friends with her and was a catalyst for her growth in the series, I am not attached to her (Lillie) as a player of the game. Maybe if she were in some other series she'd be more interesting to me? I don't know. Gladion and Hau were rather one-dimensional too but still nice to have as companions. (It wasn't anything as disarraying as having four friends constantly skipping and flocking around you and calling your name in circles like in X and Y.) But anyhow, I like them more than Lillie. Hau never gets flustered when crazy stuff is happening; he really keeps his cool and remains positive, and Gladionhe's so afflicted and standoffish it's funny. But on a deeper note I approve how he got away from his mother and made his own path when she was losing it. Unlike Lillie, he didn't wait around for anyone to save him while suffering in the meantime. He took type:NULL and got OUT of there! That's my boy. I really like that.Anyhow, moving on to the soundtrack: it's not bad at all. Until I went to YouTube looking for the songs I liked, I never knew that there were two versions for most of the songs, so I suppose every time I've picked up Sun I've only played at night (I highly favor those compositions over the day version anyhow) and missed the daytime renderings. The music is fine but to me the routes used a lot of the same songs around the same places so I didn't differentiate them as well as I would other Pokemon games. And although the music is objectively decent, I only have about three that I regularly go back to actually listen to out of affectionDEFINITELY not the wild pokemon song though. The totem pokemon version makes it better but the original makes me angry for some reasonWhat I don't like is the new menu for handling pokemon. In many ways it's convenient but I dislike trying to move a pokemon in my party and then remembering OHHH, I have to go out of my way to press Y to move this fool! On the bright side, I really like the options they give you when your party is full. You can exchange pokemon and items back to the PC all in one go!HMs: It's sort of convenient to not have to have an HM slave to perform all of the functions you need to get around the terrain, so I think it's an interesting system them procured over in Aloha. Definitely enables you to have only who you trained to be a warrior with you while you're going.Alolan forms: Pretty cool; it brings out observations that we can see in the real world. Not all squirrels, even though they're all squirrels, occur in the same appearance throughout regions or the world. So that makes it a little more interesting, though I won't comment on Dugtrio nor Golem's alolan formor whatever random stuff they did there. And the oricocos! Oh my god.All in all: not bad. I really didn't want Solgaleo though. I can only remember him as ""Nebby"" (should name him that for kicks!) and if only they had given us the choice to catch him or let Lillie have him! He iS hers. Honestly it would be gold to see a girl as clumsy as Lillie have a magestic pokemon like Solgaleo as her starter pokemon in Kanto. They deserve each other; she saved him from his demise and they went through a lot together as a team already. I really, really wasn't interested in having him becauseyou knowI'm not a fan of legendaries anyway. I was more excited when I accidentally stumbled upon Tapu Lele the other day. Though the nature of the guardian pokemon rub me the wrong way toogoing around on MY island punishing people as you willwho gave you the right?! Just kidding. I just don't really connect with legendaries in general. And I think she would feel better with him as her partner as her mom rehabilitates. And it was interesting for them to make a legendary that evolves too.That about wraps it up! Pokemon Sun and Moonpretty okay game, I won't lie. I wasn't motivated to do any more that I had to, though.
