Top 10 Best Things About Pokemon Sun and Moon

Pokemon Sun and Moon are amazing games and possibly one of the greatest in the series. *contains spoilers*

The Top Ten

1 The innovation

At first, I felt like they were trying to be way too innovative with trial captains and kahunas introduced, as well as Alolan Forms. But, I came to notice that it gave an entirely fresh experience unlike any generation. Also the trials were fun to do. They had different methods on how to be completed and I really liked that. - Ruee

2 Lillie and Gladion's story and character development

I can literally go off all day long about Lillie and Gladion. There is so much to talk about when it comes to these siblings. They've been through so much and I feel really bad for them, but I'm also happy about their growth. Lillie also happens to be one of the most developed in game characters to ever exist in Pokemon. I really love her, as well as Gladion. - Ruee

4 The story and lore
5 Lusamine being the first villain team leader to ever exist in Pokemon

I think you mean "Lusamine being the first FEMALE villain team leader to ever exist in Pokemon". - ModernSpongeBobSucks

... we have had plenty of villain team leaders... in every game... - HeavyDonkeyKong

6 The diversity of the Alola region
7 How Cosmog eventually fully evolves into Solgaleo or Lunala

Pre evos are not a thing you would see for box legends...however, they did it in Pokemon Sun and Moon. I liked the idea for the story mode, it made the box legends relevant the entire game, even if you didn't know they fully evolve into Solgaleo/Lunala until later on. - Ruee

8 The soundtrack

How well does it hold up to ORAS, though? that's my favorite soundtrack. - HeavyDonkeyKong

9 How incredible some of the Alola Pokemon are

The ultra beasts, Marshadow, Toxapex, Golisopod...do I need to list more examples? - Ruee

10 Better character customization

XY's character customization was lackluster. SM's is SO MUCH BETTER. So much clothing items to choose from, etc. - Ruee

XY: Yeah, you can change your skin color and have two hair color options. Also, we're going to be racist and force you to not change your hair color if your black.

hopefully it's better than that. - HeavyDonkeyKong

The Contenders

11 How unique Lusamine and Guzma's teams were

I especially liked how Team Skull and the Aether Foundation had theme songs that acted as foils to each other. Team Skull's theme song used hip-hop while the Aether Foundation's theme song was more orchestral. In addition, you might as well call both of them complete foils in their entirety, whether it be the goals they had, the outfits they wore, the leaders that led them, and much more to name. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

12 Hau Hau Hau is a fictional character introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. He is the grandson of the Island Kahuna for Melemele Island, Hala. He serves as the rival character and ally to the player in Pokémon Sun and Moon.

So far, hugh, Silver, and Wally are my favorites. As long as he's a better rival than Serena and arrogant prick named Blue, then I will be happy. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Hau is now my favorite rival in Pokemon, surpassing even Silver. - Mr_Awesome

13 Z Moves

I wasn't impressed with Z moves at the beginning, but later own, I found them very fun to use. I use them a lot. I love the battle animations for them. - Ruee

14 How they handled the topic of child abuse and how controlling parents damage their children V 1 Comment
15 The realistic financial struggles of Team Skull

Team Rocket in the anime sort of does this, but a lot of the times it seems like they are just tpulling machines and robot out of they're asses though. A few times, on the other hand, the mention they're financial issues. - HeavyDonkeyKong

16 How likable and interesting the characters are

XY had a few good characters such a sLysandre but they were never fleshed out. - HeavyDonkeyKong

17 No HMs

Instead of HMs, you ride Pokemon instead to get places. Summon a Taurus and smash rocks and run at a really fast speed. It's fun. - marshadow

18 Alolan forms

Alolan VUlpix and Alolan Ninetails. MIND. BLOWN. - HeavyDonkeyKong

19 The in game features
20 The Brand New "Non Gym Battle" Format

I don't have these game syet but I hope to get them soon. So far this seems to be the main selling point to me! Its nice that they're being true to the mechanics but at the same time and not following the same exact formula so fa.r Hopefully it will get the old fans to go back to the games and the anime, ESPECIALLY THE VERY ANIME, if they ever left due to them being tired of the same sort of storyline structure. I'm really looking forward to the alola challenges. - HeavyDonkeyKong
