And of course, what do I find myself doing when I have a random evening free? Again, I have a large amount of Froakie to dispose of, and I rather think that someone might like to receive one, than my leaving them to languish in a PC box somewhere.
Annnnnd, I’m still trying to offload my Froakie army that I’m building up.
Well, there’s no harm in going back for a round two of Wonder Trading is there, right? I had a few more Rotom to get rid of, and then it was dumping my Froakie collection I’ve been breeding, looking for a perfect Hidden Ability one.
So, after many years, I finally managed to get my 3DS to connect to the WiFi. Being a major fan of the Pokémon series, I sought to take advatange of finally getting online to take part in game on stuff like trading and battling Pokémon online. As it turned out, I was very quickly distracted by the Wonder Trade facility, where you can stick up a Pokémon for trade, and the game matches you up with another player online completely at random, with no idea of what you’re going to get.

With the release of the latest Pokémon games yesterday, Ultra Sun, I thought I’d have a look back over Pokémon Sun and Moon, released just over a year ago.
I have to say, I actually found coming up with this list a little bit tricky – mainly on account of me feeling that 2016 was a bit of a lacklustre year as far as videogame releases went. However, after a lot of soul-searching (and playing the games which did come out in 2016), I have managed to nail down a top ten games, released in this last year.
A New Beginning was the first Harvest Moon release which was exclusively for the 3DS. In a slight change to the standard formula used for Harvest Moon games, your goal in this game was not only to work to restore your derelict farm, but also to restore the local town, which had seen a mass exodus of residents in recent times.
Bravely Default is widely considered to be a follow-up to Square Enix’s “Four Heroes of Light”, released on the DS a few years ago, and is meant to be a return to the more traditional style RPGs. However, in true Square-Enix tradition, it did have a couple of innovations…
