Top 10 Ideas and Concepts in Pokemon Sun and Moon that You Never Expected to See in a Pokemon Game

Since there is a lot of new stuff that was introduced that no one saw coming: Let's talk about them.

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE SPOILED WHEN IT COMES TO PLAYING THE GAME AND PURPOSELY IGNORED THE NEWS TO PLAY IT BLIND: I suggest not looking at this list.

The Top Ten

1 Trial Captains and Kahunas

I did not expect this

2 Z- Moves

or this

3 Rotom Pokedex

This was such a cool and cute idea. - eventer51314

I didn't expect this either

4 Ultra Beasts

I didn't expect this one either

I really like the designs of the Ultra Beasts. My favorite is UB-02 Absorption, with UB-05 Gluttony standing out to me the most. UB-05 Gluttony's design kind of looks like something that would come out of a The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy episode. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Its design heavily reminded me of the Egg Dragoon from Sonic Unleashed. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

5 Poke' Pelago

This is just some crazy idea

6 Festival Plaza

This is kinda weird for an idea

7 Alolan Forms

4th gen gave third evolutions, and 6th gen had mega forms. I like the concept of alternative forms, but I didn't expect it.

I don't know why they have that

8 QR Scanner

Just another ridiculous thing

9 Battle Royal

Ridiculous as ridiculous gets

10 Having 6 Pokemon Teams at once ready to battle with

Never use the same team over and over them people know your team and get annoyed and know how to beat it, good to have 2

I would rather have one, but 6 isn't bad

The Contenders

11 Hyper Training

I don't know why they would come up with this

12 Rotom having the ability to take pictures like in Pokemon Snap

Ok, that's a pretty good idea there

13 Rental Pokemon

Well, at least I don't have to steal pokemon

14 Pokemon Sun and Moon being set 12 Hours apart

I LOVE THIS SINCE I'M GETTING MOON. I always loved how the night looked in ORAS though I don't always play at night. With this, I can enjoy the graphics in the night during the day. The creators said they wanted to put more focus on the night and evening and it perfectly fits with these games. - Ruee

15 Pokemon Refresh

I expected them to add more to Amie, not completely revamp it. Though I like how we can groom our own Pokemon now. As well as curing status conditions. - Ruee

16 Global Link
17 Moving from Kanto

I kinda expected this. I mean they literally had a japanese trailer about a kid moving to Hawaii from Japan. Which Kanto is in Japan and there is a lot of connections to Kanto in Alola with the alolan forms and such. - Ruee

18 Being the first champion and actually having the option to defend your title
