Pokemon Sun/Moon I got Pokemon Sun (woo!). So expect more Sun/Moon comics! (only on Route 2 though, so really not that far, haha)

But the things I enjoy most about these games so far are the little changes. Stuff like this, where in previous games we pick our starter Pokemon and expect them to be okay with it--they don't get a say. True, from a gameplay perspective, they're not going to say no to you in Sun/Moon, but adding this teeny bit of dialogue adds more credibility to the "they're not just monsters that fight for us" aspect.

The other thing I found really cool were the Trials. While they're mostly the same (beat stronger Pokemon than normal), they all had some kind of charm to them.

*edit: Rowlett best birb. Srsly tho, its final evo (not saying incase you avoided news) is amazing.

@Dragon Master: Just finished my first trail, was harder than I was expecting (though that's pretty much this whole game since X/Y was a cakewalk). Which is absolutely fine by me! Nice to have some challenge even with the EXP Share on! C:

I know all the final evos, I based my final decision on that ;D Rowlet is definitely best birb.

Rowlett and trainer Am I the only one that noticed that if you choose the girl with the lightest hair and skin her hair and shorts match with Rowlett's feathers? I thought that was really cool.

@AnonymousMe: I picked the far left girl, but I didn't even realize that! O:

That is a pretty cool feature. I imagine in real life, it would be more like, "Yeah, *you* like Squirtle, but how much does Squirtle like you?" but in the games, it's simplified. XD I like this new thing in Sun/Moon though.

And I like Rowlet's "Hmmm" like he's not really convinced XD

@ReaderWriterNerd&Geek: I don't know if it's something lost in translation, but right after this dialogue it zooms in on the Pokemon and it shakes it's head (or more accurately, it's entire body)! But I don't know if that's a *looks side to side considering things* or a fake out head shake.

@Pokemontrainergigi: Depends on how slow it is, I suppose, lol.
