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.
After the release of Pokémon Sun and Moon in 2016, they were followed up by, somewhat controversially, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon in November 2017. Although these games are standalone games in the 7th Generation, they have faced claims that they are the ‘finished’ versions of the original Sun and Moon, and were released as enhanced version as a quick cash cow. However, were there enough deviations in the newer game’s plot and Pokémon distribution to justify a second release of the 7th Gen?
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.
