Pokmon Go, menjelaskan Anda mungkin pernah mendengar cerita tentang orang-orang yang memburu Pokmon di meja kantor mereka. Di kamar rumah sakit Dan bahkan di kamar mandi. Seorang gadis remaja bahkan menemukan mayat saat mencari Pokmon. Dan polisi di Missouri mengklaim bahwa empat tersangka perampok terpikat pada korban dengan kemungkinan menangkap Pokmon dalam sebuah game baru yang disebut Pokmon Go. Apa yang terjadi Apa Pokmon Go Well, setelah beberapa tahun terbaring relatif rendah, Pokmon milik Nintendo. Yang meledak dalam popularitas di akhir 1990-an, kembali membawa dunia dengan badai. Kali ini, melalui Pokmon Go. Seriess terbesar masuk ke ruang mobile, sekarang tersedia untuk download gratis di Android dan iOS. Its so popular yang sekarang bersaing dengan Twitter dalam hal pengguna aktif sehari-hari di Android. Secara sederhana, Pokmon Go adalah game yang menggunakan ponsel GPS dan jam untuk mendeteksi di mana dan kapan Anda berada dalam permainan dan membuat Pokmon muncul di sekitar Anda (di layar ponsel Anda) sehingga Anda bisa pergi dan menangkapnya. Saat Anda bergerak, jenis Pokmon yang berbeda dan lebih banyak akan muncul tergantung di mana Anda berada dan jam berapa sekarang. Idenya adalah untuk mendorong Anda untuk berkeliling dunia nyata untuk menangkap Pokmon dalam permainan. (Ini campuran permainan dan dunia nyata yang berinteraksi dikenal sebagai kenyataan tambahan) Lebih lanjut tentang itu nanti.) Jadi mengapa orang mencari makhluk virtual saat bekerja dan saat mereka pergi ke kamar mandi Sebagian alasan mengapa Pokmon Go populer? Yang gratis, jadi mudah untuk download dan bermain. Tapi yang lebih penting, Pokmon Go memenuhi penggemar Pokmon fantasi sejak game pertama kali keluar: Bagaimana jika Pokmon nyata dan menghuni dunia kita Tapi untuk mengerti mengapa orang begitu antusias dengan gagasan tersebut, pertama kita perlu kembali ke akhir. 1990an ke game Pokmon yang asli. Apa itu Pokmon Go? Ini merupakan upaya untuk mewujudkan apa yang selalu diinginkan penggemar dari Pokmon. Permainan Pokmon berlangsung di dunia yang dihuni oleh monster eksotis dan hebat, mereka dapat terlihat seperti tikus, ular, naga, dinosaurus, burung, telur, pepohonan, dan bahkan pedang. Di dunia ini, orang-orang yang disebut pelatih berkeliling dunia untuk menjinakkan makhluk-makhluk ini dan, dengan cara yang dipertanyakan secara etis, menggunakannya untuk melawan satu sama lain. Berdasarkan premis bug menangkap hobi populer di Jepang. Dimana game tersebut berasal dari tujuan besar dalam game Pokmon, dari Pokmon Red and Blue yang asli ke Pokmon Sun and Moon yang akan datang. Adalah mengumpulkan semua makhluk maya ini. Generasi pertama game Pokmon dimulai dengan 151 makhluk, namun katalognya telah berkembang menjadi lebih dari 720. Di Pokmon Go. Hanya 151 asli yang tersedia meskipun beberapa dokumen asli tampaknya terkunci di balik acara khusus. Permainan mengambil dunia oleh badai di akhir 1990-an mode besar dikenal luas sebagai Pokmania. Game genggam asli, Pokmon Red and Blue. Keluar pada tahun 1998 di Amerika, diikuti oleh Yellow pada tahun 1999 dan Gold and Silver pada tahun 2000. Dengan permainan tersebut muncul spinoff seperti Pokmon Snap dan Pokmon Pinball pada tahun 1999, sebuah acara TV yang populer. Film. Kartu perdagangan Dan banyak barang dagangan lainnya. Selama beberapa tahun, Pokmon berada di puncak dunia. (Waralaba masih terbilang besar, bukan fenomena budaya yang dulu pernah terjadi.) Tapi karena permainan tersebut ditujukan untuk konsol genggam Nintendos, penggemar di seluruh dunia telah berbagi mimpi: Bagaimana jika Pokmon werent terbatas pada dunia game? Jika mereka nyata dan menghuni dunia kita Bagaimana jika kita semua bisa menjadi Ash Ketchum. Pelatih acara TV bintang, yang mengembara di dunia dalam usahanya untuk menangkap mereka semua dan mendapatkan penghormatannya dengan mengalahkan semua pemimpin gym yang saya inginkan dari seorang Pikachu dalam kehidupan nyata, sialan Sayangnya, Pokmon arent sebenarnya setidaknya belum melakukannya. Tapi teknologi telah berevolusi untuk bisa mensimulasikan sebuah dunia di mana Pokmon itu nyata. Itulah dasarnya apa yang Pokmon Go coba lakukan: Dengan menggunakan kemampuan ponsel Anda untuk melacak waktu dan lokasi Anda, permainan meniru seperti apa jadinya jika Pokmon benar-benar berkeliaran di sekitar Anda setiap saat, siap ditangkap dan dikumpulkan. Dan mengingat bahwa banyak penggemar Pokmon asli sekarang dewasa, ide ini memiliki keuntungan ekstra untuk memukul titik nostalgia yang manis, membantu meningkatkan popularitasnya. Pokmon Go doesnt bermain persis seperti game Pokmon khas Pokmon Go yang berbasis pada game handheld asli, tapi juga membutuhkan beberapa kebebasan dengan franchise ini. Pertama, kesamaan: Ada Pokmon, dan Anda menangkapnya. Ada juga pemimpin gym dan pelatih lain yang bisa Anda jaga untuk mendapatkan ketenaran, kemuliaan, dan jarahan. Anda juga dapat menyesuaikan tampilan dan nama karakter dalam game Anda. Dan ada juga seorang profesor (agak seksi) yang membantu Anda memulai, terutama dengan memberi Anda Pokmon pertama Anda. Selain itu, game ini membuat beberapa perubahan besar. Untuk satu, cara Anda menavigasi dunia jelas berbeda. Di game handheld, Anda cukup menggunakan controller untuk bergerak di sekitar dunia game yang telah dibuat oleh para pengembang. Di Pokmon Go. Anda harus melakukan perjalanan di sekitar kata sebenarnya, dan permainan menggunakan GPS dan jam Anda untuk mendeteksi lokasi Anda di peta dalam game dan memutuskan Pokmon mana yang ada di sekitar Anda. Terlebih lagi, permainan ini banyak membantu Anda menjelajahi lingkungan dunia nyata Anda pada waktu yang berbeda. Misalnya, jika Anda pergi ke taman, mungkin Anda akan melihat Pokmon rumput atau serangga lainnya. Jika Anda mendekati danau atau lautan, Anda akan bisa mengambil lebih banyak jenis air. Dan jika Anda pergi keluar pada malam hari, Anda akan melihat peri malam dan jenis malam yang lebih nokturnal. Ini lebih ditingkatkan oleh PokStops, yang pada dasarnya adalah lokasi penting di dunia nyata yang ditandai pada peta dalam game Anda. Anda bisa pergi ke item nab ini, termasuk Pok Balls dan telur yang bisa menetas menjadi Pokmon penuh. Ini juga mungkin untuk menginstal item khusus di PokStops yang memancing Pokmon ekstra, yang juga membuat cahaya berhenti bersinar muda di peta sehingga pemain tahu bahwa berkeliaran akan menarik Pokmon ekstra. Saran PokemonGO terbaik saya adalah memainkannya saat Anda berada di sebuah uber. Tidak dapat melakukan pertempuran di gym tapi saya menangkap 20 Pokemon dari Cap Hill ke Adams Morgan Ini perlu dilakukan adalah kedalaman permainan, intinya: Untuk menangkap semuanya (dan dapatkan medali yang dilekatkan pada tangkapan Pokmon), Anda harus menjelajahi jauh dan luas. , Siang dan malam seperti Ash Ketchum di acara TV. Ini satu-satunya cara untuk menjadi yang terbaik, seperti tidak seorang pun pernah. Permainan memonetisasi hal ini juga: Anda bisa membeli barang di toko dengan uang sungguhan yang membantu Anda memikat Pokmon. Karena Pokmon Go bebas mendownload dan bermain, beginilah cara para pengembang menghasilkan uang dari permainan. (Mereka juga mungkin menghasilkan uang dari semua data yang mereka kumpulkan). Perubahan besar lainnya adalah pertarungan. Saat menangkap Pokmon, Anda tidak melawan mereka dengan tim Pokmon Anda sendiri. Sebaliknya, pertarungan antara Anda dan makhluk secara langsung: Anda menggesek untuk melempar Pok Bola ke perangkat yang digunakan untuk menangkap Pokmon ke arah mereka, yang kemudian menangkapnya. Sebenarnya, tidak ada pertempuran Pokmon tradisional dalam permainan sama sekali. Ketika Anda melawan pemimpin gym dan pelatih lainnya, Anda tidak mengatur tim Anda yang terdiri dari enam dengan empat gerakan masing-masing dan memilih di antara keempat gerakan tersebut untuk mengakali lawan Anda, seperti yang Anda lakukan di permainan genggam. Sebaliknya, pertempuran sebagian besar diputuskan oleh kekuatan tempur Pokmons Anda sebuah stat yang melekat pada masing-masing Pokmon Anda dan Anda menekan layar untuk membuat Pokmon menyerang musuh saat menggesek untuk menghindari serangan musuh. Banyak strategi yang hilang. Karena permainan tidak memiliki pertempuran tradisional, satu-satunya cara untuk membuat Pokmon Anda lebih kuat dan mengembangkannya (Pokmon dapat berkembang menjadi bentuk yang lebih kuat) adalah dengan barang-barang khusus, yang bisa Anda dapatkan dengan menangkap Pokmon dan melawan pemimpin gym. Aktivitas ini juga meningkatkan tingkat pelatih Anda, yang membuka konten seperti gym dan meningkatkan peluang Anda untuk menemukan Pokmon yang lebih langka. Permainan saat ini tidak memiliki kemampuan multiplayer yang signifikan, yang berarti Anda tidak bisa melawan teman-teman Anda yang sebenarnya atau berdagang dengan mereka dua fungsi yang sangat besar dalam permainan genggam. (Bahkan ada turnamen Pokmon yang kompetitif dengan hadiah uang tunai). Trailer asli menunjukkan bahwa fitur multiplayer ini bisa datang pada akhirnya, karena awalnya mereka diiklankan: Kurangnya fitur multiplayer yang kuat dan pertempuran tradisional telah mengecewakan beberapa penggemar Pokmon. Seperti kata Allegra Frank di Polygon setelah seminggu bermain Pokmon Go. Saya tidak berpikir saya menyukainya. Katakan padaku jika aku terlalu kasar dalam permainan ini, tapi saat aku menjebak Pokmon di dunia nyata, aku memiliki harapan bahwa aku akan bermain game Pokmon klasik, dengan bonus tambahan untuk melihat Pikachu dan Charmander di lingkunganku yang sebenarnya. . Kelemahan lain adalah penggunaan baterai. Memiliki permainan seperti ini setiap saat benar-benar bisa menguras baterai ponsel Anda sampai-sampai sekarang ada beberapa panduan di luar sana tentang bagaimana melestarikan masa pakai baterai Anda. Untuk sebagian besar, ini benar-benar hanya rintangan teknologi awal yang ditambah dengan permainan realitas harus diatasi dari waktu ke waktu. Pokmon Go bukan game realitas augmented pertama dan tidak akan menjadi yang terakhir Melampaui impian masa kanak-kanak, Pokmon Go adalah pengenalan banyak orang ke dalam jenis permainan baru yang memadukan dunia nyata dengan yang sebenarnya yang dikenal sebagai kenyataan yang ditambah. Ini tidak seperti kenyataan maya, di mana Anda memakai kacamata atau headset untuk sepenuhnya melibatkan diri Anda di dunia maya. Sebagai gantinya, permainan realitas ditambah memanfaatkan teknologi untuk meningkatkan dunia di sekitar Anda dengan, misalnya, meletakkan Abra di toilet Anda. Mengapa seseorang menginginkan ini, kehidupan sehari-hari bisa menjadi membosankan. Jadi mengapa tidak rempah-rempah itu dengan beberapa Pokmon Pokmon Go mungkin merupakan game realitas terbesar ditambah sampai sekarang. Tapi itu bukan yang pertama dan tidak akan menjadi yang terakhir: Ini adalah konsep yang pengembang game ingin lebih banyak memanfaatkannya, karena mereka membangun konsep yang ada di game yang ada seperti Ingress. Kejahatan Hidup Saya. Dan, ya, Pokmon Go. Google bahkan meniru ide Pokmon Go untuk April Fools Day pada tahun 2014 (walaupun ini mungkin merupakan pratinjau awal rahasia, mengingat bahwa Niantic, yang membuat Pokmon Go dimulai di Google): Ingress. Namun, jelaskan masalah potensial dengan augmented reality game. Dalam Ingress. Pemain dapat saling mengambil satu sama lain, yang mengharuskan pemain pergi ke lokasi dunia nyata untuk diambil. Jadi pemain berpotensi saling bertemu di dunia nyata saat mereka bersaing untuk mendapatkan portal dalam permainan. Masalahnya: Ketika orang menjadi kompetitif, mereka bisa menjadi agresif. Dan ada beberapa laporan tentang orang-orang yang masuk ke dalam argumen kehidupan nyata atas permainan tersebut. Ini adalah hal yang sangat sulit bagi para pengembang game real estat yang akan diupgrade, karena mereka pasti tidak menginginkan kekerasan dunia nyata yang menyertai produk mereka. Pokmon Go telah mengungkapkan beberapa masalah juga. Tidak hanya empat tersangka perampokan yang diduga memasang beacon beacon di PokStops untuk menarik korban, namun ada laporan tentang cedera akibat permainan tersebut, dan polisi harus memperingatkan pemain tentang pergi ke tempat yang tidak seharusnya mereka lakukan. Kemungkinan kebanyakan pemain akan bertanggung jawab dan tidak akan mengalami masalah ini, namun ini adalah risiko penting dengan langsung melampirkan video game ke dunia nyata. Meski begitu, jika dieksekusi dengan benar, game-game ini bisa memanfaatkan imajinasi masa kecil dan heran bahwa kebanyakan game lainnya tidak ada. Ingat saat Anda biasa berlari mengelilingi taman bermain yang membayangkan Luke Skywalker, Indiana Jones, James Bond, atau, mungkin, Ash Ketchum, Pokmon master yang saya lakukan Tapi saya tidak punya waktu untuk itu lagi. (Dan saya mungkin akan meminta polisi memanggil saya jika saya mencoba.) Game-game ini melakukan imajinasi untuk Anda dengan menambah dunia di sekitar Anda, baik dengan Pokmon atau portal yang bisa Anda hack. Ini juga sedikit pelarian. Sementara itu tentu saja lebih sesuai dengan kenyataan maya, yang bisa merendam Anda sepenuhnya di dunia lain, Pokmon Go memberi Anda kesempatan untuk sekali melupakan semua kejadian mengerikan yang terjadi di luar sana, menjelajahi keindahan dunia, dan menangkap beberapa Pokmon di sepanjang cara.

Sama seperti Merah dan Hijau (Merah dan Biru di luar negeri), Emas dan Perak diikuti segera oleh versi soliter dengan sedikit perubahan, Pokmon Crystal. Serta remake dua generasi kemudian dalam bentuk Pokmon HeartGold dan SoulSilver untuk Nintendo DS. Tidak seperti game sebelumnya, Pokmon Gold dan Silver berlangsung di wilayah Johto, sebelah barat kawasan dimana game asli berlangsung, Kanto. Namun, Kanto bisa melakukan perjalanan kemudian di pertandingan. Peringatan spoiler: artikel ini mungkin berisi plot besar atau rincian akhir. Pemain memulai perjalanan mereka dari New Bark Town. Menjalankan tugas untuk Profesor Elm ke rumah Mr Pokmon untuk menemukan apa yang sangat dia sukai. Elm memasok pemain dengan satu dari tiga Pokmon, Chikorita. Cyndaquil. Atau Totodile. Untuk tugas ini Setelah penemuan Mr Pokmons ternyata menjadi Telur. Pemain kembali ke New Bark, hanya untuk menemukan bahwa seorang bocah laki-laki berambut merah yang curiga yang terlihat mengintai di luar laboratorium Elms sebelumnya telah mencuri salah satu Pokemon Elms yang pilihan pemainnya lemah, secara kebetulan. Setelah mengalahkannya dan kembali ke New Bark, pemain tersebut memberi nama anak laki-laki tersebut (pemain dapat memilih nama apa pun, asalkan sesuai dengan batas tujuh karakter yang namanya default untuk Silver G atau Gold S) kepada petugas polisi yang memiliki Datang untuk menyelidiki kejadian tersebut.

Satu per hari Setelah mengalahkan Bugsy di Azalea Gym untuk Hive Badge dan mengalahkan anak laki-laki berambut merah (Silver) sekali lagi, pemain tersebut dapat melakukan perjalanan ke Ilex Forest untuk menemukan pembuat arang Farfetchd dan mendapatkan HM01 (Cut). Dengan ini, Hutan Ilex dapat dilalui sampai ke arah Route 34. Pada Route 34, sebuah Pokmon Day Care sudah diatur, bagaimanapun, tidak seperti yang ditemukan di Kanto di Route 5. ia mampu meningkatkan dua Pokmon sekaligus. Jika Pokmon ini cukup mirip. Dan jika seorang pria dan wanita telah dimasukkan bersama-sama, Telur Pokmon dapat diproduksi. Mengawali ke Goldenrod City. Pemain ketiga Badge, Plain Badge. Menunggu.

Sesampai di sana, mereka belajar dari Silver yang melati. Pemimpin Gym, tidak tersedia saat ini, karena dia merawat mercusuar Ampharos dan menolak untuk pergi sampai Pokmon diberi obat khusus dari Kota Cianwood.

Saat memasuki gerbang, dua Rocker Grunts menugaskan mereka untuk melewatinya. Saat pemain sampai ke danau, mereka bertemu dengan Gyarados Merah. Setelah pemain mengalahkan, menangkap atau melarikan diri darinya, mereka menerima Skala Merah. Seorang pria bertopi bernama Lance muncul di pantai dan mengungkapkan tempat persembunyian Team Rockets kepada pemain tersebut. Pemain kembali ke Mahoni dan pergi melalui tempat persembunyian, bersama dengan Lance. Rencana Team Rockets adalah untuk memancarkan gelombang suara, mendorong Magikarp di danau berevolusi menjadi Gyarados, yang menyebabkan efek dari Gyarados Merah. Begitu pemain mengalahkan semua Rockets dan mematikan mesin pemancar gelombang, mereka bisa menantang Pryce. Kota-kota Ice-type Gym Leader. Setelah mengalahkan Gym Leader dan mendapatkan Glacier Badge. Pemain menerima telepon dari Prof Elm tentang sinyal radio aneh yang dipancarkan oleh Team Rocket, mencoba untuk berhubungan dengan pemimpin mereka yang hilang, Giovanni. Pemain pergi ke Goldenrod Radio Tower untuk menyelidiki. Sesampai di sana, mereka menemukan Menara yang akan diambil alih oleh Team Rocket. Ketika pemain naik ke lantai atas, mereka menemukan direktur Radio Tower, hanya untuk menemukan bahwa dia telah disodok oleh Rocket dan bahwa Direktur sebenarnya benar-benar terkunci di ruang bawah tanah Goldenrods. Begitu pemain memasuki ruang bawah tanah, mereka sekali lagi ditemui oleh Silver, yang berniat mengalahkan Team Rocket sendirian. Dia masih mempertanyakan cara dia memperlakukan Pokmon-nya.

Pada kesempatan pertama masuk ke S.S. Aqua, seorang pria akan bertemu pemain tersebut, dan akan meminta bantuan mereka karena dia telah kehilangan cucunya di atas kapal. Setelah menemukannya di kabin kapten dan menyatukannya kembali dengan kakeknya, kapal tersebut akan tiba di Kota Vermilion. Dimana pemain akan mengambil langkah awal mereka yang sebenarnya di Kanto. Pada titik ini, pemain diberi kebebasan memerintah untuk melakukan perjalanan di seluruh wilayah Kanto (yang diperkecil), dan mengumpulkan delapan lencana dari Generasi I s Gym Leaders. Pemain dapat melakukannya dengan urutan apapun, namun peristiwa tertentu harus diselesaikan sebelum beberapa Pemimpin dapat ditantang. Sebagai contoh, gerutuan Team Rocket telah mencuri Bagian Mesin dari Pembangkit Listrik Kanto dan menyembunyikannya di dalam Gym Kota Cerulean, gerutuan harus diperangi dan Bagian Mesin dipulihkan ke Pembangkit Listrik sebelum Misty dapat ditemukan di Cerulean Cape dan dibujuk untuk Kembali ke Gym Giovanni.

Blaine adalah Pemimpin Cinnabar Gym ketika kota itu hancur, dia berlindung di salah satu Kepulauan Seafoam dan dapat bertempur di sana. Ketika pemain tersebut telah mendapatkan semua delapan Kanto Badges (dan oleh karena itu, semua enam belas Lencana dalam permainan), Oak memungkinkan mereka untuk menjelajah ke Route 28 dan, melewatinya, Silver Cave. Lokasi dimana hanya Pelatih terhebat yang bisa menjelajah. Gua Perak adalah seperangkat terowongan terbuka dan lorong-lorong yang penuh dengan Pokmon yang kuat, namun pemain terus melakukan perjalanan sampai ke ujung gua, tempat Red. Sekarang Pokmon Master Berdiri sendiri untuk diperjuangkan Ketika Red dikalahkan, kredit bergulir lagi dan, setelahnya, pemain diendapkan di Route 28s Pokmon Center. Di luar Gua Perak. Masukkan dunia baru, dengan Pokmon baru untuk menangkap, melatih dan bertarung Temui Profesor Elm dan dapatkan Pok Gear yang baru. Termasuk peta. radio. Ponsel dan jam. Atur jam lalu perhatikan hari berubah menjadi malam dan acara berlangsung secara real time dan pastikan untuk mengawasi Pokmon yang keluar hanya pada malam hari Connectivity Players dapat menukar Pokmon antara dua peluru atau bertarung dengan kartrid lain menggunakan Game Boy Kabel Link Game. Untuk memanfaatkan fitur ini, beberapa Pokmon eksklusif untuk setiap permainan dari pasangan atau game Generasi I, dan yang lainnya memerlukan perdagangan untuk berkembang, membuat perdagangan diperlukan untuk menyelesaikan Pokdex. Permainan bisa bertransaksi dan bertarung dengan Pokmon Gold, Silver, dan Crystal. Menggunakan Time Capsule. Versi Jepang dapat berdagang dengan versi Jepang Pokmon Red, Green. Biru. Versi kuning dan Barat dan Korea dapat diperdagangkan dengan versi Barat Pokmon Red, Blue. Dan Kuning. Pokmon Gold dan Silver sama sekali tidak cocok dengan game dari Generasi III dan seterusnya. Perdagangan antara game Pokmon dalam bahasa yang berbeda mungkin dilakukan, permainan Jepang tidak dapat terhubung dengan game non-Jepang tanpa menyebabkan korupsi. Jika pertempuran antara permainan Jepang dan permainan non-Jepang dicoba, pertempuran tidak akan berhasil, dengan menyimpan file yang tersisa tanpa cedera. Permainan Korea dapat bertransaksi dan bertempur dengan permainan bahasa Barat, namun permainan Korea mendukung alfabet Latin. Permainan bahasa Barat tidak mendukung Hangul. Jadi nama dan Pelatih Pokmon asli dari game Korea akan menggunakan berbagai karakter yang tidak terkait yang berada pada kode dasar yang setara untuk menampilkan nama Korea (berpotensi termasuk karakter kontrol, yang dapat menyebabkan berbagai masalah). Pokmon Gold and Silver kompatibel dengan Pokmon Stadium 2. Sementara pertarungan link tidak mungkin dilakukan secara langsung antara Pokmon Gold dan Silver dan game Generation I, pemain dapat menantang permainan Generasi I dengan menggunakan Pokmon Stadium 2. Pokmon Stadium 2 Jepang dapat berkomunikasi dengan Jepang. Generasi I dan II seri game inti, tapi tidak bahasa lain Pokoni Stadion Barat 2 dapat berkomunikasi dengan game seri inti Generasi Barat I dan II, namun game ini tidak mengenali game Jepang dan tidak dapat membaca file save dari permainan Korea. Pokmon Gold dan Silver juga kompatibel dengan Game Boy Printer. Hal ini dimungkinkan untuk mencetak entri Pokdex, Diploma. Kotak Sistem Kotak Pokmon, Pesta Pokmon, Mail. Dan Alph Ruins Stamps. Elite Four Gold and Silver memperkenalkan sindikat Elite Four baru, meskipun ditemukan di lokasi yang sama seperti sebelumnya dalam versi Red and Blue: Indigo Plateau. Pelatih Elite adalah Will (Psikis), Koga (Poison), Bruno (Fighting), dan Karen (Dark) Champion adalah Lance. Yang menggunakan Dragon-type Pokmon. Lorelei dan Agatha. Yang merupakan bagian dari Elite Four di Generasi I, tidak muncul dalam Generasi II, juga tidak disebutkan. Permainan fitur 100 spesies Pokmon baru, ditambah 151 Pokmon Generasi I. Meskipun demikian, tidak semua Pokmon tersedia untuk satu pemain pun, terlepas dari versi perdagangan harus terjadi di antara pemain untuk menyelesaikan Pokdex mereka tanpa menggunakan cheats atau glitches. . Selain itu, kebanyakan Pokmon terkait dengan kejadian di Generasi I. termasuk starter Kanto (potongan Pokmon Yellow s Pikachu), Pokmon Fosil. Burung legendaris Mewtwo dan Mew. Tidak hadir dari semua game Generasi II dan harus diperdagangkan. Celebi adalah satu-satunya Pokmon yang diperkenalkan di Gold and Silver yang hanya bisa diterima secara sah dengan menghadiri acara Nintendo. Desain sprite Pokmon juga berbeda antara dua game, sebuah karakteristik yang sejauh ini unik untuk pasangan ini. Untuk alasan yang tidak diketahui, dua set game-eksklusif Pokmon. Phanpy dan evolusinya Donphan. Bersama dengan Teddiursa dan evolusinya Ursaring. Ditukar antara rilis Jepang dan lokal, dengan yang sebelumnya tersedia dalam Emas Jepang dan Perak internasional dan yang terakhir tersedia dalam Perak Jepang dan Emas internasional. Namun, situasi ini tidak terjadi dengan remake, HeartGold dan SoulSilver. Versi Korea dari Emas dan Perak tidak memiliki perubahan ini. 1. Eksklusif untuk Silver dalam versi Jepang dan Korea. 2. Eksklusif untuk Emas dalam versi Jepang dan Korea. Pokgear diterima di awal permainan dari ibu protagonis. Ini memiliki beberapa fungsi, beberapa di antaranya perlu dibuka saat pertandingan dengan menerima kartu ekspansi khusus. Pokgear menampilkan hari dalam seminggu dan waktu, masuk pada awal permainan, peta Johto (dan kemudian Kanto) begitu Kartu Map diperoleh, sebuah ponsel, yang memungkinkan pengguna untuk melakukan panggilan ke orang-orang yang Mereka telah menukar nomor telepon dengan, dan sebuah radio yang memungkinkan pemain mendapatkan tip dari Profesor Oak dan DJ Mary di Oaks Pokmon Talk, mempengaruhi seberapa aktif Pokmon liar dengan bermain Pokmon March atau Pokmon Lullaby di stasiun Musik Pokmon, atau mendengarkannya. Lucky Channel untuk melacak promosi lotre Radio Towers. Bola Pok khusus lainnya diperkenalkan di game-game ini. Bola Lure lebih efektif jika digunakan melawan Pokmon yang tertangkap dengan pancing. Bola Berat digunakan untuk menangkap Pokmon besar dan berat seperti Snorlax. Dan Friend Ball akan membuat Pokmon lebih nyaman dan bersahabat dengan Trainer-nya dengan lebih cepat. Untuk mendapatkan Balls ini, Apricorn harus dipetik dari tanaman spesial yang ditemukan di seluruh Johto, dan Kurt di Azalea Town akan membuat ini menjadi Balls berbeda berdasarkan warnanya. Namun, Kurt hanya bisa membuat satu Bola pada satu waktu, dan pemain harus menunggu sampai esok harinya Kurt untuk menyelesaikan Ball. Setelah mengalahkan Lance. Dan menjadi Pokmon Champion. Pemain bisa berwisata ke Kanto. Wilayah yang diperkenalkan di Generasi I, dan lihat bagaimana segala sesuatunya telah berubah selama tiga tahun terakhir: Karena pemadaman listrik, kunci tidak lagi diperlukan untuk membuka pintu Lt. Surge. Dan tong sampah di tempat Gym semuanya kosong (simpan untuk sampah). Sebuah gunung berapi telah menghancurkan segalanya kecuali Pokmon Center di Cinnabar Island. Meninggalkan kawah berisi hujan. Articuno. Zapdos. Dan Moltres tidak lagi ditemukan di Kanto, secara logis karena mereka telah tertangkap dalam Generasi I. Gua Cerulean dan Mewtwo juga hilang, meskipun seorang pria di dekat reruntuhan gua memang menyebutkan penjara bawah tanah, dan sebuah barang tersembunyi yang disebut Pak Berserk Gene dapat Ditemukan di air dekat bekas pintu masuknya. Rumah Bill (Sea Cottage) masih ada di Cerulean Cape, namun saat ini Bill sedang mengunjungi keluarganya di Johtos Goldenrod City. Rumah itu diawasi oleh kakeknya. Blaine has moved his Gym to one of the Seafoam Islands due to Cinnabar s volcanic eruption. As a result, no wild Pokmon can be found in the Seafoam Islands. Blue (Green in the Japanese versions), the rival of Generation I, is now the leader of the Viridian City Gym. Giovanni is nowhere to be seen, though he is clearly mentioned many times, as Team Rocket aims to find him. Red. the Generation I protagonist, appears in Johtos Mt. Perak. serving as the games true final challenge. His highest level Pokmon is a level 81 Pikachu. Red also has a Snorlax at level 75, a Blastoise. Venusaur. and Charizard. each at level 77, and a level 73 Espeon. The first five Pokmon are specially obtainable in Pokmon Yellow. The Copycat still lives in Saffron City. but has moved to another area of town. Her old house was demolished to make way for the Magnet Train station. As compensation, she received a free rail pass from a man at the station, which she gives away to the player after the return of her lost doll. According to her mother, this is the same doll that Red exchanged for TM31 (Mimic ) in Generation I . Kanto Gym Leaders use Generation II Pokmon in addition to Generation I Pokmon. Remixes of most of the overworld and battle music from the Generation I games are used. Some notable exceptions include Cinnabar Islands music and the music from various Team Rocket hideouts. Most routes were shortened, but cities and towns generally remained the same size except Celadon City. which shrank slightly. Pokmon seen in the wild are different: many Generation II Pokmon can be found. Some Pokmon that were previously restricted to the Safari Zone can be caught in wild areas, such as Rhyhorn in Victory Road and Kangaskhan in Rock Tunnel . The entrance to Team Rocket s headquarters in the basement of the Celadon City Game Corner has been removed, although a man in Celadons Pokmon Center alludes to it. The formerly-abandoned Kanto Power Plant is now used to power the new Magnet Train (which may have led to the departure of the Pokmon that once infested the plant in Generation I). The bike shop in Cerulean City is closed, and the owners have moved to Goldenrod City in Johto. The old man in Viridian City has now had his coffee, and says, Hey, kid I just had a double shot of espresso and I am wired He references the fact that in Generation I he taught the player how to catch Pokmon, and asks if the player believes him, but does not attempt to teach this time around. The Fighting Dojo s master is away training, so the Fighting Dojo only provides a Focus Band left behind. The master is training in Mt. Mortar in Johto. When found and defeated, he will give away a Tyrogue . The museum in Pewter City is closed for renovations. The other caverns and Viridian Forest all have the same layout as they did before (with the exceptions of Mt. Moon and the Seafoam Islands), but reduced in size. Koga. the former Gym Leader of Fuchsia City and now a member of the Elite Four. has been replaced by his daughter Janine . The Pokmon Tower in Lavender Town has been replaced by a Radio Tower. similar to the one in Goldenrod City. In turn, the Pokmon grave sites were moved into the newly added Soul House. Access to the upper floors of this Radio Tower is restricted, a safety precaution taken as a result of Team Rockets takeover of Johtos Radio Tower . The Safari Zone is closed while the warden is on a vacation. Instead, the Bug-Catching Contest at the National Park takes its place. The Underground Path from Celadon City to Lavender Town has been sealed indefinitely, ostensibly due to vandalism. A sign cites local complaints about battles there and a local Biker Gang complains about it closing down because it was their base. Victory Roads length has been drastically shortened, and no longer includes the barriers, boulders, Trainers, and pressure sensors. Trainers can be found outside, but no longer in Victory Road itself. Viridian Forest has been reduced to shrubs, and wild Pokmon can only be caught in the grass of what used to be Route 2 . Route 23 has been reduced to a short path leading between Victory Road s exit and Indigo Plateau . The Pokmon Center on Route 4, outside Mt. Moon, is no longer there, leaving the player to trek all the way to Pewter City to heal their Pokmon. The player can no longer enter Silph Co.s upper levels due to increased security. New features Gold and Silver introduced a number of features to the Pokmon video game franchise, many of which set a new standard for every game in the series that followed. Gold and Silver introduced the concept of storing items such as healing items, Pok Balls. and Key Items in separate compartments in the Bag. The updated battle screen showed both how much experience points a Pokmon had until its next level and whether an encountered wild Pokmons species has already been captured. Also, held items raised the bar for strategy, allowing players to outspeed opponents, heal ailments, restore HP in battle. boost the power of moves of a specific type, or increase the Pokmons friendship. among other uses. All Trainers battled by the player had their own unique name, and some would be available for rematches later in the game. A time system was also introduced. Throughout the game, Pokmon appearances are influenced by time of day: morning, day, and night. Hoothoot. for example, only appears at night (since its an owl-like Pokmon). Certain events are also determined by the day of the week, like the Bug-Catching Contest which is held in Johtos National Park on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Depending on the day of the week, either Pokmon March or Pokmon Lullaby can be heard on the PokGear radio. Pokmon March raises the chance of a Pokmon appearing when the player walks into the grass, while Pokmon Lullaby decreases that chance. With the introduction of breeding. all Pokmon belong to one or two Egg Groups. It is important to note that legendary Pokmon cannot be bred they are genderless, and will not breed, even with a Ditto (which can breed with any Pokmon capable of breeding). A baby Pokmon will be born when a male Pokmon and a female Pokmon that share at least one Egg Group are left at the Pokmon Day Care. In the case of Pokmon that are always male (Hitmontop. Nidoking. Tauros. etc.), or Pokmon who can breed but whose gender is unknown (Magnemite. Voltorb ), the only way to produce a baby from these species is by breeding them with a Ditto. A baby Pokmon will inherit the species of its mother (or non-Ditto parent in the case of a Ditto breeding) and inheritable moves from its father (when its not a Ditto). Fathers always pass down TM moves that the babys species could learn, which are valuable (since some are only obtainable one time). If both parents know a move that the babys species learns by leveling up, the baby is born knowing that move as well. Fathers may also pass down special moves called Egg moves to the baby that it would not normally be able to learn by leveling up or evolving. Shiny Pokmon These games introduced Shiny Pokmon Pokmon which have a different coloring than their species has normally, and which appear very rarely (a 1 in 8192 chance). In these games, Shiny Pokmon often have higher stats than regular Pokmon, but can never achieve maximum stats for that species (as Shininess is based on the Pokmons IVs in this generation). In this generation, the odds of an Egg hatching into a Shiny Pokmon can be significantly increased if one or both parents are Shiny. There is one Pokmon guaranteed to be Shiny: a Red Gyarados can be found at the Lake of Rage. Since it is part of the storyline, it is impossible not to encounter this Pokmon as Shiny. Pokrus (a portmanteau of Pokmon and virus) was introduced. Encountering a Pokmon with the virus is even rarer than encountering a Shiny Pokmon, with the odds estimated to be somewhere around a 1 in 21,845 chance. Pokrus doubles the special experience (a concept adapted to later installments as effort values ) that the players Pokmon gain each time the infected Pokmon participates in battle (provided the battle is won and the infected Pokmon does not faint). Type and stat changes Two new types were introduced: Steel and Dark. These two types serve to balance the Psychic type, which previously was only weak to Bug-type moves. In addition, the Steel and Dark types also balanced the Fighting type, which was only super effective against Normal -, Ice -, and Rock-type Pokmon Steel and Dark are both weak to Fighting-type moves. Steel-type Pokmon are known for their very high defense they are highly resistant to many types and their moves are strong against Ice- and Rock-type Pokmon. Dark-type Pokmon are immune to Psychic-type moves and have moves with malicious-sounding names, such as Bite (previously Normal-type ) and Thief. which are super-effective against Psychic-type Pokmon. Dark-type Pokmon are also strong against Ghost-type Pokmon, thus being the only type that has an attack advantage over Ghost-type Pokmon besides Ghost-type moves themselves. Dark-type Pokmon are also weak to Bug-type attacks. Some type match-ups were changed as well. In Generation I Ghost-type moves had no effect on Psychic-type Pokmon this was changed to super-effective as it was in the anime. Poison-type moves were previously super effective against Bug-type Pokmon, and Bug-type moves were super effective against Poison-type Pokmon this was changed to Poison doing normal damage to Bug and Bug becoming not very effective against Poison, seriously limiting the effectiveness and usage of both types. Ice-type moves were also made not very effective against Fire-type Pokmon (previously doing normal damage). Four moves had their types changed: Gust. previously Normal-type, became a Flying-type move Bite. previously Normal-type, became a Dark-type move Karate Chop. previously Normal-type, became a Fighting-type move Sand-Attack. previously Normal-type, became a Ground-type move. Two Pokmon, Magnemite and Magneton. changed from being Electric type to being Electric Steel. Another major change from the original games was the splitting of the Special stat into Special Attack and Special Defense. Again, this increased aspects of strategy, for Pokmon were now more specialized. Some were good special attackers, while others were better physical attackers the same now held true for Defense and Special Defense. For example, Cloyster has a decent Special stat in Generation I, but in all later games, has a decent Special Attack, but low Special Defense. The games were generally well received and in-turn received a Masterful 1010 by IGN. 911093 Craig Harris of that site states after playing the game dozens of hours, I really cant think of a bad point to make about Pokmon Gold and Silver. 911193 Battery life Copies of the Generation II games typically lose the ability to save in a shorter timeframe than copies of the Generation I games due to the battery maintaining both the saved game and real-time clock data, causing it to drain quicker. The battery is replaceable with another one of the same kind (a CR2025), or a CR2032. which is slightly thicker and lasts longer. Since it powers the save file, interrupting the power by removing the battery will cause any current save file to be lost. Third party devices such as the GameShark may offer ways to backup and restore the save file. A symptom of a battery running dry is the games inability to keep track of the time correctly (the error message TIME NOT SET may also appear on the title screen). Pokmon Gold and Silver are the only paired versions which have not had any sort of official soundtrack release of the games original tracks. The closest approximation to such a release is Disc 3 of Pokmon HeartGold amp Pokmon SoulSilver: Super Music Collection . which is based on the GB Sounds item and the Pokmon Past Archive radio program of HeartGold and SoulSilver that is meant to emulate the style of chiptunes. However, not all of the old-style music is available on the CD. Additionally, Discs 1 and 2 of the aforementioned soundtrack contain remixes of the music originating from Pokmon Gold and Silver (and Crystal). Development cycle Dated September 20, 1999 (source ) This section is incomplete. Jangan ragu untuk mengedit bagian ini untuk menambahkan informasi yang hilang dan menyelesaikannya. In the Japanese and Korean versions, the Pokmon summary screens are vertically aligned in a similar fashion to the Generation III games. In the Western localizations, due to the space constraints, the layout was reverted to the horizontally-aligned one of the Generation I games. The amount of PC boxes in the Pokmon Storage System was changed from 9 to 14 in the localizations (including the Korean ones) due to the maximum number of Pokmon per box being decreased from 30 to 20. In the Japanese and Korean versions, the Pokmon in the Pokmon Storage System s layout is enclosed in a text-box frame and the Pokmon list appears in the background. In the Western localizations, there is no frame surrounding the Pokmon but the Pokmon list appears in a text-box frame. In the Japanese and Korean versions, the sign of Pokmon Centers in Johto have a Pok Ball drawing with the letters PC next to it. In the Western localizations, the sign was changed back to the one used in the Generation I games. The Pokmon Center signs in Kanto use the old design in all versions. In the Western localizations, the gender symbol for the Nidoran is shown twice during battles due to the gender symbol being placed next to the level indicator instead of next to the Pokmons name as in the Japanese and Korean versions. In the Japanese and Korean versions, SonicBoom s animation is a shock wave hitting the opponent. For undisclosed reasons, it was changed to a tornado hitting the opponent in the Western localizations, making it very similar to Gust . Nineteen Pokmon. including Jynx. as well as certain Trainers. had their sprites changed between the Japanese and Western versions. The Korean versions use the same sprites as the Japanese versions. The changes made for Western versions were also taken into account for the Japanese and Western versions of Pokmon Crystal. although they were instead incorporated in the new sprites. Cover of Pocket Monsters GumEun In the Japanese and Korean versions, Phanpy and Donphan are found in the wild in Pokmon Gold while Teddiursa and Ursaring are found in the wild in Pokmon Silver. In the Western localizations, these were switched. This change was not replicated in the international versions of Pokmon HeartGold and SoulSilver . The party of Pokfan Alex, a Trainer found on Route 13. is made of Pokmon that have names ending in king (Japanese: ). Due to Magikarp not sharing this trait in the Western releases (its Japanese name is Koiking ), it was replaced by Seaking in order to stay true to the theme. Unlike Magikarp, which is level 58, the Seaking is level 29 like the rest of his team. In the Korean versions, his team is the same as in the Japanese versions since Magikarps Korean name is ( Ingeoking ) and both Nidoking and Slowking also have the word king (Korean: ) in their Korean names. This was also not redone for Pokmon HeartGold and SoulSilver since Alex still has a Magikarp in the localizations, which is now level 65. The Korean versions of the games can only be played on the Game Boy Color. due to the need for more memory in order to properly render the Korean characters. Tsunekazu Ishihara. the current CEO of The Pokmon Company (at the time, the games producer ), originally thought that these games would be Game Freak s last Pokmon project and thus the company invested in the Trading Card Game and licensed various merchandise as means to assure the success of Gold and Silver as the ultimate Pokmon titles. 911293 These are the only pre-Generation IV Pokmon games ever released in and localized for South Korea prior to the foundation of both Nintendo of Korea and Pokmon Korea in 2006. Nevertheless, the Time Capsule is available in the Korean versions of Gold and Silver. The Japanese Super Game Boy border of Pokmon Gold (labeled POCKET MONSTERS GOLD VERSION ), but not of Pokmon Silver, is present but unused in all releases of Pokmon Crystal. Similarly, in the Korean releases of Gold and Silver, the English Super Game Boy borders (respectively labeled POKMON GOLD VERSION and POKMON SILVER VERSION ) are present but unused, since they only support the Game Boy Color . In the Korean versions, the credits are presented in English. The Japanese games would later replicate this in Generation V but only when character mode is set to kanji . Due to a possible oversight in the international versions, the Japanese quotation marks are used in certain parts of the dialogue, like in radio stations. This was corrected in Crystal. These games were the first to have legendary Pokmon as mascots and the use of precious stones or metals as title names. Gold and Silver, as well as their remakes. have the most types that have been specialized in by Gym Leaders. adding up to 15. If one includes the Elite Four. the Ground type is the only type that is not specialized in by an important Trainer in these games. None of the in-game trades in Gold and Silver feature the player trading away or receiving a Generation II Pokmon. making them the only games in which a player must link up with another player to trade Pokmon of that generation. Gold and Silver are the only versions where wild Pokmon battle music is different between day and night. The boxarts for Pokmon Red. Pokmon Yellow and Pokmon Silver are the only three instances where the English Pokmon logo is shown partially covered by some element (in this case, Lugias crest).

Sell amp Trade Game Items RS Gold CSGO ELO Rocket LeagueVideo Game Pokmon Sun and Moon Not to be confused with the first set of Robopon games, which had Sun . Moon . and Star versions. Spoiler Warning: Pokeacutemon Sun and Moon is very popular and contains lots of spoilers here and its subpages. Due to this, it is recommended to have the spoiler view turned off if you dont want to be spoiled. This game has many plot twists and surprises, and most spoilers are marked. Some of them are unmarked, however. You Have Been Warned. Tropes that Pokeacutemon Sun and Moon provide: openclose all folders 34 View. SunMoon are the first handheld games to fully avert this, bringing the camera down to proper third-person perspective. This being said, the camera is still situated in a way that evokes the camera style of the previous installments. Absurdly Youthful Mother : The protagonists mother jokes that she could probably pass for a child to take on the Island Challenge. Lusamines character design doesnt show any obvious signs of age, so she doesnt look much older than you, Hau, and Lillie. The only thing that gives her away is her height . According To My Calculations. The Rising Star at the Battle Buffet seems to choose his dishes this way, going by his dialogue. Its shown that hes not that wise, though, since he picks dishes at random just like other trainers at the counter, and his comment after losing is that he took calorie count into consideration for some reason. Action Prologue. The game starts as it usually does (entering name and gender) but then goes completely off script, shifting to a cutscene where Lillie is being chased by mooks. Then, once you get to the first town, you have to rescue Lillies Pokeacutemon from attacking Spearow, only for both of you to be rescued by Tapu Koko. THEN youre given your Starter. (And the action gets more intense from there.) Adaptational Attractiveness. In every game previous to this one, the Hiker Trainer Class has always been a rather rotund, middle-aged man however, in the Alola region, the Hiker is younger and looks more like a buff Surfer Dude. On the other hand, the Gentleman went from a classy Quintessential British Gentleman type to a plump Hawaiian-Shirted Tourist on vacation. Added Alliterative Appeal. Many Z-Moves have alliterative names, such as Continental Crush, Extreme Evoboost, Twinkle Tackle, and Shattered Psyche, considering that the P is silent. Several new regular moves are also alliterative, such as Baneful Bunker, Smart Strike, and Pollen Puff. Adult Fear : The Eevium-Z sidequest in the postgame highlights the sad reality of a group of trainers that have not aged gracefully, with several in dead-end jobs, a few more suffering from ill health and aging, and one of them having passed away and entrusted her Pokeacutemon to her granddaughter. A side event that you can witness involves a lady visiting the grave of her husband, who died in an accident that only his Machamp survived. Team Skulls members are composed of runaways and failed Trial-goers, the trainers who made some bad life choices in their childhood and couldnt grow up gracefully . Affectionate Nickname : Professor Kukui refers to the protagonist as cousin. Molayne calls Sophocles Soffy. Sophocles in turn calls Molayne Big Mo. Hau calls Hala, his grandfather, Tutu, and the protagonists mother auntie. Lillie calls her Cosmog Nebby. Acerola calls Nanu Uncle, though shes not actually his niece. The use of familial terms like cousin, uncle, and auntie to refer to friends is actually a very common practice in Hawaii. due to the cultural perception of close friends being an extended family of sorts. Harper and Sarah call their older sister Lana Sissy. All Deserts Have Cacti. The scenery of the desert during encounters shows Saguaro cactus. Hawaii does have cacti on some of the western sides of the islands, just not ones of this type. Aloha Hawaii. The new region is called Alola and is based on the American state of Hawaii, the fourth state to receive representation in the franchise. The first was Arizona in Pokmon Colosseum and Pokmon XD: Gale of Darkness and the second and third were New York and New Jersey in Pokmon Black and White and its sequel. The four islands are based on each of Hawaiis largest islands with geography to match, and each island is named according to its real-life counterparts official color in Hawaiian. Aluminum Christmas Trees. The Alola Sandshrew and Vulpix lines changed to thrive in snowy habitats. in a tropical region based on Hawaii. But what many dont know is that it actually can snow in Hawaii on the highest mountain peaks8212 which happen to be where these Ice Types are found . Always Accurate Attack. Z-Moves do not perform accuracy checks, meaning they will always hit the target without fail. However, theyll still miss if the opponent is using a move like Fly or Dig. Ambiguous Syntax. The Rotom Dex has a couple of moments wondering about location names: Wondering if the Trainer School is a school for trainers or a school where trainers are teachers. And if the Ruins of Hope are hopeful ruins or hopes end. Americans Hate Tingle. In-Universe with Pyukumukus popularity: only Alolans consider them cute, while most people from other regions hate them. Theres even a job at the Hano Resort for chucking Pyukumuku back into the ocean, for Pyukumukus benefit as well as the tourists. Anti-Frustration Features : The new interface shows which moves are effective, non-effective, or super-effective against the opposing Pokeacutemon how much a Pokeacutemons stats have been raised or lowered and many variables that players had to memorize in previous games, such as non-volatile status effects (e.g. Leech Seed, Confusion, etc.), how long weather will last, and the presence and strength of entry hazards, among others. This makes it so players no longer have to memorize which buffs or debuffs are in effect or recalllook up type charts during battles. Really handy since many new Pokeacutemon introduced in this generation dont look their type. note Note that this is unavailable if its the first time youve battled the creature. When using Z-Power, if more than one attack will use the unique Z-Move, but one will make the Z-Move more powerful than the other, the game will mark the Z-Move that has more power with a glowing filter. NPCs that battle the player on sight now have visual cues that distinguish them from harmless NPCs. They have a battle pose, and if the player gets close, the screen gains a letterbox effect. Hyper Training allows your Pokeacutemon to gain stats equal to what its maximum IV would provide as long as that Pokeacutemon is level 100. When you catch a new Pokeacutemon or try to take an Egg with a full party, you have the option to swap out a member of your team right there rather than having to backtrack to a PC. If you choose to send a new catch to the PC and its holding an item. the game will inform you and give you the option to send the item to your bag before the Pokeacutemon is boxed. If you choose to box an existing team member and its holding an item, the game will let you take the item first. It also allows players to check what nature a Legendary Pokeacutemon has immediately instead of having to wait through a cutscene first. The Rotom Pokeacutedex helps to keep track of the players objectives, which in previous games could be somewhat unclear. It also activates when a Pokeacutemon is registered via trading or evolution, something it did not do in previous games, the information becoming more readily available. The HM mechanic is gone entirely (though some HM moves are converted to TM) it is replaced by Ride Pokeacutemon. The Rotom Pokeacutedex and QR codes allow you to better track down wild Pokeacutemon, down to the specific patch of grass they can appear in. Your Bag has a Free Space pocket, returning from Black 2 and White 2 . where you can register items you frequently use (like healing items or Repels) into one pocket for easy access, rather than having to scroll through the rest of the bag. Pokeacutemon Refresh lets you heal status effects without using up precious items or backtracking to a Pokeacutemon Center, which also means you wont need as many items to begin with since many players wait until after they finish a battle before healing up. Pokeacute Beans can be bought by purchasing a drink at the cafe - the drink itself doesnt seem to actually have an effect other than receiving some beans from it. However, you can only receive them once a day. In the previous games, if you evolve a Pokeacutemon at a later level than normal, the Pokeacutemon would miss out on any moves that the Pokeacutemon would have learned upon evolution. In Sun and Moon . the Pokeacutemon would instead learn the move after the evolution itself, permitting later evolution and earlier access to moves, given that the Pokeacutemon learns stronger moves at earlier levels if the Pokeacutemon is at an earlier evolutionary stage. In a similar vein, the Move Relearner now teaches every move in a Pokeacutemons level-up learnset, instead of the ones it would have learned at an earlier level, meaning that you no longer have to put off an evolution until the Pokeacutemon learns the move you want. note Though it will still not allow you to relearn moves that are exclusive to a previous evolution. The breeding and leveling aspect of the Pokeacutemon Day Care have been separated. The new Nursery is now solely a breeding facility, which lets you breed Pokeacute without worrying about their movesets getting overwritten, which used to be a huge thorn in the players side as they were trying to breed on Egg moves. As for where the levelling bit went, thats now a Pokeacute Pelago feature, and allows up to eighteen boxed Pokeacutemon to gain EXP at once while youre off doing your own thing - and that thing doesnt even need to be related to the game, as Pokeacute Pelago runs in real time regardless of if youre playing or not. You can also donate Beans to accelerate the process further. The Pokeacute Pelago in general helps cut down on having to travel to four different locations to do some tedious things. It has a Berry Farm that no longer requires checking in to get the max yield, a cave that can get you various items, including evolution stones, a training area that can not only level up Pokeacutemon but also their stat E Vs. and finally a Hot Springs that not only helps raise Friendship of Pokeacutemon but can slowly hatch Eggs as well. The post-game allows a Fast-Forward Mechanic. by way of traveling to a parallel universe with a twelve hour difference, to bypass all the time-restricted events such encounters and Zygarde cell collection. You can take a job once per day to remove Pyukumuku from the beach and receive 20,000 Pokeacutedollars, cutting down on the money grinding and having to go though the Battle Buffet and Elite four runs. In addition, you sometimes receive sellable items from some Preexisting Encounters and by fishing and breaking rocks. The stats judge, instead of having to go to him for an evaluation each time, will instead install a judge feature onto the PC, allowing you to check all of your Pokeacutemon at a glance from any PC in the game, saving you lots and lots of trips whenever youre hatching eggs. In addition, it now shows you all the values in a hexagon chart with labels, with Best being a maximum IV and No Good being a minimum IV. Unlocking this feature is still a Guide Dang It task, though. note Hatch 21 eggs for him to do it. While the two versions of the game have their own version-exclusive Legendaries note Sun has Solgaleo, Buzzwole, and Kartana whereas Moon as Lunala, Pheromosa, and Celesteela they also grant the player the chance to obtain multiple copies of each exclusive, so trading for the one youre missing isnt anywhere near as painful. You no longer have to go back to the PC to free up a space in your party just so you can take an egg from the Pokeacutemon Nursery, whereas previous installments of the series forced you to free up a space in your party just so you could take one. Additionally, you have the option of sending the egg directly to the PC if you dont want to hatch it immediately instead of having it added to your party whether you like it or not or being forced to box one of your other Pokeacutemon. Due to how helpful the Move Reminder is and how scarce Heart Scales were in previous generations (forcing players to constantly hunt and catch Luvdisc in the hope that they would be holding one), Sun and Moon gives players a number of Heart Scales every time they visit the local Island restaurants and buy a meal. Unfortunately, this isnt pointed out to the player and they can easily run right past the restaurants as theyre never required to enter them, thus being a bit of a Guide Dang It. In addition, they can also be a tad pricey at times (with Sushi High Roller costing 4,000 per meal). Luckily, if the player defeated the local Kahuna, then once a day, the last item on each menu can be ordered for free, since the Kahuna pays for them. The Kahunas arent interested in keeping their Heart Scales, so the player also receives double the amount than usual. The Ability Capsule costs a whopping 200 BP in the 6th Generation for an item that only works once and doesnt give you access to Hidden Abilities. In these games, their price was reduced to 100 BP. Arc Number : A whole category of them: The Ultra Beasts are themed around prime numbers. All of their base stats are prime numbers, and with the exception of 1, learn moves only at levels that are prime numbers. Necrozma, Cosmog, Cosmoem, Solgaleo, and Lunala also share this trait. The number 4 also shows up a lot in the game. Four islands, Kahunas and Tapus, four trainers to battle at the Trainers School, four Pokeacutemon in a Battle Royal, and the story arguably focuses on the journey of 4 characters (the player character, Hau, Lillie and Gladion ). Four X is Kukuis Mad Libs Catchphrase as well. Fitting, as he plans to establish Alolas first Pokeacutemon League. Anti-Grinding. Sun and Moon use the experience system from the 5th generation games, where Pokeacutemon gain less experience upon defeating a Pokeacutemon whose level is lower than the victors, and more experience after beating a higher level Pokeacutemon, making leveling up Pokeacutemon harder than the previous games. The games do have the Gen VI version of the Exp. Share, which gives every party member that didnt fight half of the experience gained. You cannot rematch any of the Trainers, either, and there is currently no known way of doing so. Just like with X and Y, you can only rematch Trainers you meet in the restaurants, GAME FREAK Morimoto. and the Elite Four in the Pokeacutemon League. making grinding that much harder. That, however, is subverted by the Trials, as long as you do not complete them. If you leave in the midst of a Trial for whatever reason, be it being under-prepared by not training, having insufficient materials, etc. then that means you will lose any and all of your current progress you have made and will be forced to start from the beginning. However, in certain Trials, you cannot start over from the beginning since you cannot leave, but that does not mean you cannot grind. This special case applies to Kiawes Trial you can continue to play dumb, even though the answers are straightforward as broad daylight. if you still believe that you need to grind to anger the Alolan Marowak and fight them for Experience. Aristocrats Are Evil. Downplayed but still present as a theme. In Alolas past the four kingdoms of the islands fought in wars, even petitioning their islands Tapu into using their Guardian of Alola powers to fight for them. The destruction that was wrought led the Tapu to remove themselves from being so involved in human affairs. Presumably they were dethroned around the same time, if the local Olympus Mons viewed as guardian deities removed their support. Furthermore, their pampering of the Normal-type Meowth led to the line developing into Dark-types (known as Evil in Japan) and Trial Captain Acerola, their descendant, is a Ghost-type trainer (though she is a very sweet and noble character ). Armor-Piercing Attack : Attacking Z-Moves bypass protection moves like Protect and Baneful Bunker, although the damage dealt is quartered. Psychic Fangs works like Brick Break, destroying Light ScreenReflectAurora Veil and then damaging the target. Darkest Lariat, Incineroars signature move, ignores the targets Defense and Evasion stat changes. Art Evolution. A subtle one, but now everyone has different sizes in the overworld, rather than have almost everybody the same chibi-size. The Artifact. Bluk and Pinap Berries can be obtained from the employee giving out free Berries in the Thrifty Megamart, despite the fact that theyre completely useless. They even retain their description from Omega RubyAlpha Sapphire . in which Pokeblocks are brought up, which Alola does not have. Hilariously, they also cannot be traded. Artificial Brilliance. Some of the Totem battles have great battle strategies. Totem Wishiwashis next summon is an Alomomola, which can use Heal Pulse on Wishiwashi when its HP is low so it can go back into School form at the end of the turn. Totem Salazzle summons its basic form Salandit, and gets the brutal Combination Attack of Toxic, which badly poisons the target, Venom Drench, which lowers both offense stats and speed of a poisoned Pokeacutemon and Venoshock, which doubles its attack power (from 65 to 130) if the target is poisoned. Its not hard for this to sweep an unprepared team. Steel-types will not save you here, as Salazzle and Salandits Corrosion ignores Steel-type immunity to poisoning, and Salazzle knows Flame Burst to melt it down. Totem Lurantis holds a Power Herb to make its first Solar Blade a 1-turn attack. It can also summon a Trumbeak that has Rock Blast to eliminate Bug, Flying and Fire-types that may threaten it. Take care of the Trumbeak, and it would then send a Castform. This might sound confusing, until you realize it can use Sunny Day to make Solar Blade a 1-turn attack again and boost the healing capacity of Synthesis. Totem Vikavolt has a Charjabug as a partner 8212 Charjabugs ability of Battery boosts Vikavolts already high Special Attack, something the two are said to do in official lore. Subverted. because all of the Totem Vikavolts offensive attacks are physical note Bug Bite, Spark, and Vice Grip, to be more specific. meaning that Charjabugs Battery boost will be useless on it. Totem Vikavolt holds a Occa Berry, which reduces super-effective damage from Fire-type moves. Totem Kommo-o will summon a Scizor as its second partner after the first, Hakamo-o, is dealt with since Kommo-o has a double weakness to Fairy-type moves and Dragon-type moves have no effect on Fairy Pokeacutemon, Scizor is the perfect counter to anyone who would bring a Fairy-type Pokeacutemon to the battle. Totem Kommo-o also carries Flash Cannon to deal with Fairy-type Pokeacutemon itself. In addition, it may use Protect on the first turn to protect itself from attacks and it can summon its ally with little to no risk. And it holds Mental Herb so it will heal from any move-binding effect once. When fought as the Final Boss. Professor Kukui proves his chops as a researcher specializing in Pokeacutemon attacks. On his first turn, he sends out Lycanroc, which will use Stealth Rock if not defeated quickly. Later on, his Braviary can make your life hell by repeatedly using Whirlwind to drag your team across the rocks and whittle their health down. Of course, this can be easily remedied by knocking Braviary out, unless the players team isnt up to snuff, that is. A number of AI trainers can now switch Pokeacutemon if their current one isnt doing much, which they may use to try and take the player by surprise. Also, instead of bringing out their Pokeacutemon in order, they may instead choose one out of their team that would have a type advantage against yours. Artificial Stupidity : The AI doesnt know how most abilities work. For example, a Hypno will try over and over to put the players Komala to sleep, despite its Comatose ability making it immune to major status conditions. Kukui will regularly have his Magnezone blast your Pokeacutemon with Electric attacks, even if it would hurt it in turn. like, say, a non-Ground Alolan Marowak with Lightning Rod. He will wise up and switch out at some point, however. The AI seems to like using Pain Split far more than necessary without taking into account the actual HP of either Pokeacutemon, resulting in situations where the AI hurts their own Pokeacutemon and heals that of the player. The AI is unaware that Misty Terrain now prevents confusion, resulting in some opponents wasting turns trying to inflict it. If Hau ends up with a Primarina, he may end up targeting your Pokeacutemon with its Z-Move (Oceanic Operreta) when hes your partner in the Battle Tree. This is due to Sparkling Aria being a Herd-Hitting Attack thats also tagged as a support move because it heals burns, which confuses the AI since Oceanic Operetta is a single-target move. Hau in general just makes some downright questionable choices. During a battle where he starts with Alolan Raichu against two WaterPsychic Pokeacutemon, he may elect to spam Psychic rather than the super-effective Thunderbolt. In the Battle Royal, some opponents may gang up on you and use not very effective moves repeatedly, even if you heavily resist them, such as opponents using Psychic on something like a Mega Metagross, which 4x resists it. This tends to happen most in the higher ranks when they tend to put their biggest priority on finishing you off. As with previous titles, wild Pokeacutemon always select their moves at random.

Others gain access to moves that they cant learn in previous generations, such as Dodrio now learning Swords Dance and Jump Kick.

Fell Stingers Power is increased from 30 to 50. In addition, instead of sharply raising the Pokeacutemons Attack stat after defeating an opponent with Fell Stinger like how it did in Generation VI, it drastically raises its Attack stat (3).

This is a Nerf for some others though8212see below. The Battle Didnt Count. A heroic example. Some battles, such as the one with Hau upon first arriving at UlaUla Island and the battle with Lusamine at the Aether Paradise will permit you to lose and still continue on with the games story, just losing out on the experience and money winning battles can provide. Same goes for the 4-way battle at Royal Avenue, with the characters reacting in the same way regardless of whether you win or lose.

Cerebus Retcon : Pokeacutedex descriptions reveal that Mega Evolution has adverse physiological and psychological effects on the Pokeacutemon that undergo it. This may be a reference to Mega Lucario in the XY anime, which went psychotic the first few times it underwent Mega Evolution. A more minor example: Previous Pokeacutedex descriptions for some Pokeacutemon would sometimes describe a diet that mostly consists of berries, even when the Pokeacutemon is based on a carnivorous animal. Sun and Moon drops that pretense and go into detail on predator and prey relationships. Cerebus Rollercoaster : One of the biggest examples of this happening in a single game in the franchise. The beginning of the game is all Welcome to Alola, paradise in the Pokeacutemon world Yeah You soon find that many Pokeacutedex entries are pretty dang dark. But hey, the Rivals a really nice and upbeat guy, Team Skull has a hilarious rap motif going on, and those Aether Foundation people seem like good folks. except their President, who turns out to be the mother of this cute girl with a Pokeacutemon in her Bag youve befriended, has actually gone completely insane, and among other things, nearly kills that Pokeacutemon by using its power to open wormholes all over Alola letting in Ultra Beasts. But in the end you save Alola, you prove to be a true role model to Lillie, and you become the first ever Champion of the region Oh look, Lillies leaving for Kanto to help her mother and try to make amends. sniff. and as it turns out, those Ultra Beasts that were released earlier are still on the loose.

Colorful Theme Naming. Each of the four islands is named after Hawaiian word for the official color of its real-life counterpart . Combat Pragmatist. While its not uncommon for an opposing Trainer to show this in the more recent titles, some of the Totem Beasts themselves are rather savvy while using S.O.S battles. For instance, the second trial involves a Totem Wishiwashi, which can summon an Alomomola or a normal Wishiwashi both these Pokeacutemon can use Helping Hand and a move that heals the Totem Beast, which in turn, helps it maintain its Schooling Ability. The fourth is a Lurantis that can summon a Castform who uses Sunny Day, which strengthens the Grass-Type Totem. The fifth is a Totem Vikavolt, whose partner is a Charjabug with the Battery Ability, which makes the Totems Electric attacks more damaging. (And the Vikavolt itself has Vice Grip to punish any Trainers who think they can use a Ground Type to bring it down easily.).

No, you cant get them by simply buying drinks, that would make too much sense. The Computer Is a Cheating Bastard : Within Ilimas trial you can battle level 11 Alolan Raticate or Gumshoos, and the Totem Raticate or Gumshoos is about level 12 on top of the Defense boost it gets from the Totem. Rattata and Yungoos dont normally evolve until level 20. When you battle Ilima the second time around, he sends out a level 15 Gumshoos. There is a rare chance that a wild Pokeacutemon will summon in a evolved form of itself. However, some of its evolved form will appear at a level said pre-evolution doesnt evolve at. Most notorious is a level 10 Salamence summoned in by a wild Bagon as early as Melemele Island, the first area of the game. Theres a random scientist with a level 29 Magneton, 1 level early. The Totem Lurantis and Totem Salazzle are several levels below the levels their pre-evolved forms evolve at note For reference, Fomantis evolves at level 34 during the day, while female Salandit evolve at level 33. Mallows trial has you battling either a level 22 Parasect or Shiinotic depending on the version. Both Paras and Morelull evolve at level 24. In the Battle Tree, there used to be a Kommo-o with the move Shell Smash, which Kommo-o cannot learn. The Version 1.1 patch replaced that move with Draco Meteor, which every Dragon-type Pokeacutemon can learn via tutoring. The Computer Is A Lying Bastard. The new feature of telling you the effectiveness of moves against your opponent only takes typings into account it ignores abilities (e.g. Levitate nullifying a Ground-type weakness) and move effects (e.g. Gravity nullifying a Ground immunity).

At one point in the game, a few Team Skull grunts capture a Slowpoke in an attempt to sell its tail. In the Hauoli City mall, you find a woman standing in front of a set of posters, who comments that theres no switch under a poster, calling back to the fact that the entrance the Team Rocket HQ in Pokmon Red and Blue was behind a poster in the Game Corner. In the postgame, Wicke says that Lillie is going to Kanto to get help for her mothers condition from Bill, since Bill had also fused with a Pokeacutemon once. Lana claims she once reeled in a Red Gyarados. (Whether the protagonist believes her or not is up to the player.) At the Battle Buffet, one of the dishes uses an Eggant Berry, one of the e-Reader exclusive Berries that only appeared in Gen III. One of the workers in the Geothermal Power Plant once mentions how the Kanto power plant lost power because of one missing machine part. and it had been long abandoned before that, but the legendary Zapdos once appeared before someone there . A man on Route 14 says he once saw a Pikachu that knew how to use Surf. During the post-game, Lookers explanation of the concept of a Faller and how Anabel got to this world is very much reminiscent of his (or, possibly, his counterparts from another dimensions) predicament in Omega Ruby amp Alpha Sapphire . At Malie Garden, the Nugget Bridge challenge from Red and Blue is emulated, down to each Trainer using the exact same Pokeacutemon and the final trainer offering the player the opportunity to join Team Rocket. After the protagonist battles him, he admits everyone on the bridge was just having fun and that its ridiculous to ask the player to join Team Rocket because Team Rocket disbanded years ago. If you meet her in the Battle Tree, youll find that five of Anabels six possible Pokeacutemon are based on the ones she used in Emerald s Battle Tower. Before the fight, shell remark that something about the Battle Tree feels nostalgic to her.

For example, you can get You better have Burn Heal from the Kanto Tent. Convenient Weakness Placement : In Route 2s Pokeacutemon Center there is a NPC willing to trade a Machop for a Spearow. Perfect for taking on the first trial and its Normal (or Dark)-type totem Pokeacutemon. In case you dont want to use Machop, the route also has Makuhita roaming in the grass and chance that Crabrawler are in the berry piles. Not only that, but the TM for Brick Break can be found in the trial site itself. Later, before Lanas Trial one of the NPCs in Route 5 will trade a Bounsweet for a Lillipup, which ensures you have a Grass-type ready for the trial. Once you clear Lanas trial, she gives you both a Fishing Rod and the privilege to catch the Pokeacutemon in the Totems Den in Brooklet Hill, the area leading up to also has Water-type Pokeacutemon that you can catch. This gives you an opportunity to catch a Water-type Pokeacutemon close in level to your party, just in time for Kiawes Fire-type trial. Kiawes trial in turn is in Wela Volcano Park (with the Totems den being away from natural wild pokeacutemon spawns). The area has the FirePoison Salandit, which will let you come full circle with this trope and Akalas trials. The last Trial before the Grand Trial is Mallows, with a Grass-type totem Pokeacutemon. And before you even reach Lush Jungle, Colress will come and gives you the TM for Flame Charge, meaning that you will have a good Fire-type move before the trial. All of this leads up the to Grand Trial of Akala, the Kahuna Olivia, who uses Rock-types. That means that the Pokeacutemon you can find in Lush Jungle can make short work of her team. Before the Dragon Trial in Vast Poni Canyon, you can not only find the TM for Dazzling Gleam, but you are given the Fairium Z without needing to do anything for it, meaning that you have something what is super effective against the Pokeacutemon in the trial. And in case you needed another move against them, the trial site contains the TM for Dragon Claw. The Post-Game quest involves you capturing (not defeating, you wont progress until theyre captured. ) several Ultra Beasts. Before the credits roll, you battle and can even capture Tapu Koko, which can learn False Swipe and Thunder Wave via TM. It also has Natures Madness, which is basically a glorified Super Fang, and you receive the Tapunium Z after defeatingcapturing it, which can upgrade Natures Madness into Guardian of Alola, which removes 75 of the opponents remaining health instead of the usual 50. Youd be hard pressed to find a better Pokeacutemon to catch others with. Contractual Boss Immunity. Totem Pokeacutemon cannot have their SOS ability disabled, unlike wild Pokeacutemon. Creator Cameo. Like in previous core series games, the player can visit the game developers, who are found in an office building in Heahea City.

I Pokeacutemon: Kangaskhan, Machamp, Dragonite, Flareon, Jolteon, and Vaporeon. Cross-Popping Veins. The moves Swagger, Bide, and Super Fang involve red veins in their animations. Damn You, Muscle Memory : Only the circle pad can be used to move the player character, as the D-pad is assigned to Alolas Pokeacute Rides. Even among Pokeacutemon games made for the 3DS, this is unprecedented. The HM system has been removed in favor of Pokeacute Rides. Its accessed by pressing Y, but if youre a veteran of the series, dont be surprised if you find yourself opening the Pokeacutemon menu when you need to fly. The NPC who gives you the Fly TM remarks on this change, and the two NPCs at Poni Breaker Coast also tell you they cant sell Surf and Waterfall as HMs. You now switch Pokeacutemon by first pressing Y in the Pokeacutemon menu instead of it being part of the list of options on a Pokeacutemon. Downplayed if you were accustomed to moving them by dragging and dropping them with the stylus now you have to hold the stylus on the Pokeacutemon you want to move for a second before you can move them that way, otherwise you get the same menu as if youd selected it with A. In previous games, when healing up at the Pokeacutemon Center, the nurse would say something in the vein of Let me take your Pokeacutemon for a moment and then heal your Pokeacutemon. In Sun and Moon . an extra A-press is required when the nurse says that line. In the 6th generation, when a Pokeacutemon Mega Evolves, its speed and ability before Mega Evolving is used to calculate turn order. Now, the Pokeacutemons speed and ability after Mega Evolving is used to calculate turn order. Unlike the two previous generations, this game no longer allows to instantly close all open menus at once by pressing X. The X button now has different functions depending on the menu, none of which involves closing the menu. In the previous generation, you can check a Pokeacutemons moves during battle by holding L while selecting the move with either A or the stylus. Here, you can only check moves with LA selecting the move with the stylus will use the move, regardless of whether or not L is held. This wont affect you if you prefer using buttons instead of the touchscreen, but if youre used to the stylus controls, this can lead to situations where you accidentally use a move when you were checking to determine whether or not you actually wanted to use it. Closed doors require an A-press before you can enter a building or room, when in previous core series games, you could either walk through them or have the player character open them automatically. Dance Party Ending. At the end of the main story the player is treated to an extended cutscene in which the various captains, kahunas, and other major characters throw an elaborate festival in honor of Alolas new Champion.

When you leave a Pokeacutemon with the Nursery Lady, she says, Ill take care of your Pokeacutemon for a while. Come back again after a while. Developers Foresight : If you stand in front of a walking NPC, they will stand still for a few seconds, before turning around and walking the other way. If the player defeats Hala and did not use any Z-move throughout the match, Ilima will comment about it. If Mina doesnt get a chance to use her Pokeacutemons Z-Move, she comments on it after the battle. During a Z-move sequence that makes the Pokeacutemon float in mid-air, Diglett (and Dugtrio) is still concealed by a floating chunk of earth. 9674 In the unlikely situation that youve completely filled your PC boxes to the point of being unable to obtain more Pokeacutemon and then talk to Gladion when he wants to give you Type: Null. hell call you out for catching such a ridiculous amount of Pokeacutemon. Should you rank up the Festival Plaza while in the castle, the cutscene will automatically start. If the Global Mission person is the one who gets you a rank up, shell say The owner of the castle is here. Please go talk to him. and the cutscene will automatically start. Any member of the Machop line transferred from Generation 1 will get its Hidden Ability by default. This was likely done to prevent a swarm of No Guard Fissure Machamp from sweeping online battles. As usual in the core games, theres a long, straight route for players to go back and forth to hatch eggs. However, the developers also added an enclosure a few steps away from the Nursery that is the perfect size to Tauros Charge in circles, speeding up the process a great deal. If the player has the box legendary in their party when meeting Professor Kukui outside the League for the first time hell comment on it, even addressing it directly to explain that the mountaintop site was chosen to honor it. Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu. While theyre Eldritch Abomination level monsters, it is possible to defeat the Ultra Beasts and even capture them. Difficulty Spike : Poni Island marks a jump in Pokeacutemon levels. Prior to Poni Island, the strongest trainer the player faces has Pokeacutemon all at Level 41. The wild Pokeacutemon on Poni Island are all Level 43 to 44, trainers with Pokeacutemon whose Levels are 44 to 45, and not too far in, the player faces the Kahuna, whose ace Pokeacutemon is Level 48. The Final Boss has his ace Pokeacutemon at Level 58. The first boss the player faces in the post game storyline has Pokeacutemon all at Level 61. Disappeared Dad : As par for the course of the series, the player characters father is nowhere to be found. Haus father left the region after being fed up with the kahunas customs . While the game never explicitly states what happened to Lillies and Gladions father, its implied that an Ultra Beast-related accident caused him to disappear - and reappear on Pokeacute Pelago with no memories . Disconnected Side Area. A certain corner of Konikoni City is blocked off by a white fence. You have to go all the way around through a secret part of Digletts Tunnel to get there, requiring Machamp Shove (the final Pokeacute Ride, which you get long after your visit to Konikoni). The weirdness kicks in when you notice the townspeople apparently walled off the short, safe path to their own lighthouse for no real reason. Disk One Final Boss. The story has Guzma and Team Skull, who are revealed to be working for the Aether Foundation. Disk One Nuke : Theres a very rare chance of you finding a wild Salamence on Route 3. (About 1, and only in S.O.S Battles.) A special Munchlax could be obtainable via Mystery Gift before January 11th, 2017. Despite starting out at Level 5, it has solid stats. And as soon as obtaining that Munchlax, the player can receive Snorlium Z, though it cant use it unless it has Giga Impact. Its moves include Happy Hour (which can increase money gained from battles) and Hold Back (which always leaves a wild Pokeacutemon with at least 1 HP remaining, making catching them easier.) Whats more is that the Munchlax is marked as your own rather than as a traded Pokeacutemon, so obedience will never be a problem. You can gain a Machop pretty early via in-game trade, right before the first Trial where the Boss is a Totem Gumshoos or Raticate depending on the game. The Festival Plaza is one you have from nearly the beginning of the game. Among all the buildings you can have are: Food stalls that can provide stat boosts or level up Pokeacutemon by several levels, item stores that can sell the best items, including stat boosting ones, early in the game, Bounce Houses to boosts Pokeacutemons stats, and lottery stores that you can draw from daily that have a better chance of getting rarer items the higher rank it is (including the coveted Master Ball from a Big Dreams lottery store). Theres even a dye store where you can die White-colored clothes your favorite color (though the store of the Color you like might be exclusive to the other version note Red, Green, Orange, and Purple Sun Yellow, Blue, Navy Blue, and Pink in Moon . you can bring it to your Plaza though other players). The best part is that you dont need the games normal currency to buy anything there, you use Festival Coins, which are earned very easily and quickly thanks to assisting other player characters that come to your Plaza or doing missions with other players online, which are constantly happening. The only downsides are the fact that when stores run out of inventory, they dont restock until the next day, and stores like the Haunted House or Lottery Stores can only be used once a day, but theyre both easily negligible downsides. Just before the second trial, you can obtain the TM for Scald, a very powerful (80 base power) Water-type move that may also burn the target. Teach it to one of the easily found local Water-types like Wishiwashi (whose Schooling form has stats on par with legendaries) or Dewpider (whose Water Bubble ability doubles the power of its Water-type attacks), and you can run right over anything that doesnt resist Water for a large portion of the game. Eevee can be found in the wild not too long after you reach Akala Island, and you can get an Eevee egg from the Nursery by talking to one of the breeders there. Because the Soothe Bell is obtained on Melemele Island, and Pokeacutemon Refresh is available since the games first hour, its highly possible to obtain an Espeon, Umbreon, or a Sylveon before even facing the the first totem on Akala. Evolving them gives a pretty large boost to their stats - and Sylveon is trivially easy to obtain. Doing In the Wizard. SolgaleoLunala are revered in Alola for being the child and emmisary of the sunmoon, akin to the mythical power over nature past legendaries had. Then it turns out theyre merely Ultra Beasts from a different world, and are anything but unique specimens with a relation to celestial bodies. Down on the Farm. Paniola Ranch, on Akala Island has the same feel. It has fields of grain (where Pokeacutemon are hiding) and cattle (Miltank and Tauros, of course), along with Captain Mallow, a Farmers Daughter type. Dub Name Change. A notable aversion in comparison to the larger franchise, for the English script at least due in part to the theme of the game this time around (folks from different regions coming together), Game Freak and TPCI are making an effort to ensure that the names of the human characters are unified across regions and that the names of many of the natives are recognizably Hawaiian. The only ones who are really different in English are some of the trial captains (Lana and Sophocles being the big standouts), Faba, and Samson Oak (he falling victim to being related to a Legacy Character ). The names in the various Romance language scripts still tend to vary a bit more. Dummied Out. Datamining of the games has uncovered walking and running animations for nearly every Pokeacutemon. Apparently Game Freak planned to include following Pokeacutemon like there was in HeartGold and SoulSilver . but left it out, the likely culprit being that the 3DS couldnt handle it in certain situations. Early-Bird Cameo : Quite literally, as a few shots from the announcement trailer show Alolas regional bird, Pikipek, being rendered. Early in the gameplay trailer, as the protagonist is leaving his house, Rockruff can be briefly seen standing next to an NPC. Solgaleo and Lunala were seen in the starter reveal trailer, both in-game and on the box art, before their names and types were revealed. The September 6, 2016 trailer featured a brief shot of Ribombee. If you look carefully at the Alola regions official artwork you can make out a small island with a large plant growing out of it which resembles a lone palm tree or a giant beanstalk. On October 4th 2016, it was revealed that it is Isle Abeens, one of the islands of the Pokeacute Pelago. A picture of Lusamine ( the Big Bad ) can be seen in a book in the intro. Easter Egg : If the Player Character is made to spin around in place for long enough, they will eventually start doing a ballerina twirl. If you mash (instead of hold) runB button while the Player Character is moving, they will lose their balance (comparable to Platform Game characters who stand near edges). Lying in some of the beds you come across doesnt grant you a nap and restore your Pokeacutemon as in previous games, not even your own bed. Instead, your character will lie down and make observations about the owner of the bed. Sitting in chairs is not completely gone- you can sit in most if not all throne-like chairs. There is a Sightseer class trainer checking out brochures by the cafe in the Poni Island Pokeacutemon Center. Hell battle you with a shiny Exeggcute, one of the only programmed shiny encounters in the game, and will give you six Big Nuggets if you win. Eccentric Mentor. Professor Kukui is weird . His style of dress - baseball cap and no shirt under his lab coat. Cool Shades. and sneakers- is rather unorthodox, and the first time you visit his lab, his research (as Lillie calls it) sounds like fighting (and she says he does that a lot .) And on top of all that . he apparently has a side job as a masked wrestler. Eldritch Abomination. The Ultra Beasts are mysterious creatures with code names whose power can threaten humans and Pokeacutemon. One Ultra Beast, UB-01, looks like a jellyfish, but its made of a glass-like substance, is constantly changing shape, and its movements are said to resemble those of a young girl. In reality, the Ultra Beasts are Pokeacutemon from other universes, and they can bring other things with them8212 including people . Eldritch Location : The abandoned Thrifty Megamart where you do the sixth Trial counts you confront the Totem Beast in a small room which isnt there . according to Acerola. And shes right if you go into the store again, the door to the room is missing. Of course, the Pokeacutemon inside are Ghosts. Haina Desert functions as this, as the paths loop back on themselves and trying to go north in multiple instances will lead to the same dead end, unless you follow the rock formations in the correct order. Ultra Space, the home of the Ultra Beasts. The player visits Ultra Space to subdue Lusamine. While the game doesnt show much of Ultra Space, theres something very alien about the area. Lillie mentions its hard to breathe, and the Rotom Dex is inoperable. Empty Room Psych : Those Roadside Motels turn out to be very important for the post-game Ultra Beast quest. The final room in Resolution Cave is empty except for a few items, but during the post-game UB story, the final Ultra Beast is found there . The Lake of the SunneMoone contains a single TM and absolutely nothing else. Unless you bring your mascot legendary there in the post-game. Enemy Summoner. A new battle mechanic is SOS battles, which allows wild Pokeacutemon to call for help, summoning a lower-leveled Pokeacutemon to aid it in battle. This most notably seen during the Totem Battles in the Island Trials, but it can happen with most wild Pokeacutemon. If it happens, the battle becomes a double battle and your Pokeacutemon can gain more Effort Points, and as a result, increase the chances of finding a Shiny or a Pokeacutemon with Pokeacuterus. Its also the only way to catch certain wild Pokeacutemon, and can be encouraged via use of an item called an Adrenaline Orb and by using a Pokeacutemon with Unnerve, Pressure, or Intimidate. For the random encounter Pokeacutemon, this can lead to Summon Bigger Fish. as they will occasionally summon a more powerful Pokeacutemon to help. The most common case is when a pre-evolution calls in an evolved one, such as a Magby calling in a Magmar. Doesnt work out for Corsola if a Mareanie is nearby. Mareanie are predators, so instead of helping the Corsola fight the player, it will help itself to a Corsola sandwich. The same applies to Carbink who may summon a jewel-hungry Sableye by accident. Epic Fail. The first global mission, Catch a lot of Pokeacutemon had a goal of catching 100 million Pokeacutemon in two weeks, and by the time it finished only 16 of the goal was reached. Even before then, many people believed that Game Freak had really overestimated their capabilities and combined with their knowledge of the Pokeacutemon Global Links many issues correctly predicted that the mission would bomb horrifically. note At the time of the missions beginning, Sun and Moon had sold about 7 million copies worldwide. Assuming that everybody with a copy caught about 13 Pokeacutemon and had access to the internet, the goal would have been reached. However, only a fraction of the games playerbase go online with the games and use the notioriously-buggy PGL, and obtaining a Game Sync ID was a prerequisite for becoming eligible to participate. Even then, many users found that they also needed to fully connect their games up to a PGL account (which itself requires a Trainer Club or Daisuki Club account depending on the players region) in order to get their catches to count, and some of them struggled to do so either from issues involving account creation or being unable to connect their games due to losing their account details, not at all helped by a usernamepassword retrieval system that rarely achieves anything helpful, and being unable to make a new account all problems that have been going on since the websites establishment in 2010 alongside Pokmon Black and White . Equipment Spoiler. If you browse the GTS, you may find some Pokeacutemon are caught in a strange blue and gold Pokeacute Ball never seen during the main game. Then when you see Lusamine using one to send out UB-01. youll probably catch onto what theyre for before you even get them. Eternal Engine. The Aether Paradise is by far the most artificial place on Alola, and is the home of the groups massively big headquarters building. Even Evil Has Standards. Once Guzma finds out the deeper evil plot going on, and what exactly it entails, he wants no part in it . Experience Booster. Just like the previous generation, raising a Pokeacutemons affection up to two hearts in Pokeacutemon Refresh (instantly granted by feeding a Pokeacutemon a Rainbow Bean) grants a 20 bonus, and just like all core series games, traded Pokeacutemon get an experience boost. In the postgame, Kukui will also reward a Lucky Egg after registering at least 50 entries in the Pokeacutedex. Exposed to the Elements : Inverted with returning characters Cynthia, who keeps her all-black ensemble and longcoat, and Colress, who appears in a thick button-up coat instead of his lab coat. Neither outfit is particularly practical for the Alolan tropical climate. Though in Colress case, an NPC who met him mentions that his lab coat is filled with a coolant technology. Played With when Kukui talks to you right before you enter the Elite Four hes still in his usual sandals, long shorts, and lab coat without a shirt when you talk to him on the snowy peak of Mt Lanakila, and you can lampshade this by asking Arent you cold. However, considering most of the shirt options are either short sleeves or tank tops, and most of the pants options are either shorts or (if youre playing as a girl) skirts, youre probably not much warmer than he is . FaceHeel Turn. Guzma founded Team Skull after he failed to become a Trial Captain. Failed a Spot Check. During the photo montage in the credits, theres a Masked Royal mask hanging on the wall right behind Kukui and Burnet. Since she doesnt know that Kukui is the Masked Royal, she is either rolling a lot of ones on her spot checks, or she puts up a good act. Fairy Companion. The Rotom Dex helps players along the way with finding Pokeacutemon and letting them know where to go next. Fandom Rivalry. An In-Universe example: Moon s Pokeacutedex entry for Seaking says more of their Trainers than of the Pokeacutemon:Trainers who are crazy for Seaking are divided into horn enthusiasts and fin enthusiasts. The two groups do not get along well. Fantasy Helmet Enforcement. The safety gear that comes with Ride Pokeacutemon includes a helmet. Makes sense, since the protagonist is a kid, and crashing through boulders and riding across a rocky path invite injury (but not in-game, of course). Far Side Island : The Pokeacute Pelago is a group of tiny islands where you can send your boxed Pokeacutemon to train them, get various items like Pokeacutebeans and evolutionary stones, farm berries and even obtain wild Pokeacutemon. One of the islands, Isle Abeens, resembles a Far Side Island with a beanstalk-like plant in place of the singular palm tree. In areas off the coast where LaprasSharpedo can be ridden, theres always one or two tiny islands with a palm tree and usually an item to pick up. Fascinating Eyebrow. Cooks, a trainer class debuting in these games, raise one eyebrow while smiling in their post-battle pose, and male Rising Stars raise their eyebrow while frowning in their post-battle pose. First Town. Iki Town is where the player receives a starter and has their first battle, but it is actually not where they live. Five-Bad Band. The leaders of Team Skull and the Aether Foundation. each with their own unique title: Big Bad. President Lusamine. The Dragon. Boss Guzma. The Evil Genius. Branch Chief Faba. The Brute. Enforcer Gladion, Lusamines son. The Dark Chick. Admin Plumeria. Also The Brute. as she leads the Mooks in Team Skull. Sixth Ranger Traitor. Assistant Branch Chief Wicke. Gladion also betrays the group when he finds out whats really going on. Bigger Bad. The Nihilego that poisoned Lusamine with its toxins, which exacerbated her already narcissistic personality into becoming the obsessive lunatic she is in game. Five-Man Band : The Protagonist is The Hero . Hau is The Lancer . Rotom is The Smart Guy . Gladion is The Big Guy. once he joins the group. Lillie and Nebby are The Chick . Floral Theme Naming. Most of the characters introduced are named after flowering plants, particularly those native to Hawaii. Flower Motifs. Alongside characters names, some NPC Trainer classes use flowers in their designs. Dancers, Gentlemen, Madames, Youngsters, Bellhops, and Teachersfemale Office Workers have flower patterns on their clothes. Lasses have flowers in their hair, and Sightseers wear flower hats. Flunky Boss. Totem Pokeacutemon have the ability to call ally Pokeacutemon into battle, though the player is still only allowed one Pokeacutemon out at a time. Food Porn. Eat in any of the restaurants and you will be greeted with descriptions so intricate, your character might as well be a food critic. And thats not even mentioning the Malasadas, which has TV shows that describe their taste with such detail. Forced Tutorial. In true Pokmon tradition, players have to undergo the standard learn how to throw Pokeacute Balls tutorial. Additionally, the first couple of hours of the game are essentially a forced tutorial, with players having to spend time at a Trainer School no less, and being told that moves have types. Foreshadowing : In X and Y . the player can receive an item called the Strange Souvenir, which depicts a Pokeacutemon said to be worshipped as a guardian in a distant and previously unknown region. Not only does this perfectly fit the description of the Tapu, but said Souvenir can also be found for sale at a store in Alola. The item has no actual use in either game, however. The first shot you see of Professor Kukui is his hand wearing a wedding ring. Later on, you meet his wife, Professor Burnet . A subtle one in-game, but if you look closely at the walls around Po Town, which was taken over by Team Skull, they look oddly similar to the stainless white you saw during your brief tour at the Aether Paradise, hinting at Team Skulls alliance with the Aether Foundation . Another subtle one, you can hear a few riffs of the Aether Foundations leitmotif in Guzmas battle theme. Lillie mentions early in the game that she only wears clothes that her mother chose for her. When you first visit the Aether Foundation, Lusamine comments that children would be happier if they simply listened to the adults around them, and suggests taking Hau out to buy him new clothes of her own choosing. He refuses, and wagers only she and Lillie could pull off clothes like hers. After you encounter your first Ultra Beast, the Aether Foundation President gains a Slasher Smile (which is explicitly given camera focus and zoomed in) and expresses interest in protecting it . The Train On series of pre-release promotional videos conclude with Shohei and Hoku trading a Lunala and Solgaleo to one another. Youre given an extra Cosmog with which to follow suit, making it possible to have both cover legendaries on a single cart without losing out on one of them. When youre invited to the Aether Foundation for the first time, Lillie expresses a bit of unease and opts out of tagging along. Upon arrival, youll quickly recognize it as the place Lillie and Nebby escaped from in the prologue. As the game progresses, youll find out why they did. Early on, after clearing Illimas Trial, he mentions how anyone can pass the roadblocks if theyre escorted byare a strong Pokeacutemon trainer. As that particular one opens up for you, Professor Kukui comes from the other side, by himself. Being one of the strongest trainers in Alola, of course hes allowed to go anywhere he wants. During your playthrough of the main story, youll notice that this regions Punk trainer archetypes almost look identical to the Team Skull Grunts. After Team Skulls disbandment, the grunts that leave presumably become this archetype evidenced by a female punk apprenticing as a chef in Mallows family restaurant after the main story. After defeating Guzma for the second time, he declares his intent to beat you down someday no matter whose help he needs to do it. Not too long afterward, you learn of his alliance with Lusamine. Freeze-Frame Bonus. Doubling as a Funny Background Event. look behind the player after Acerola claims the back room in the abandoned Megamart doesnt exist. You can just barely see Mimikyu walk by, explaining why Acerola got goosebumps before she left . From Bad to Worse. Wild Pokeacutemon can call for help, another wild Pokeacutemon might appear and fight along with it. Though this isnt the case for some Pokeacutemon as the Pokeacutemon that it call for help will attack it instead. Full-Body Disguise. There are two examples of people wearing Pokeacutemon disguises, which are good enough to fool the protagonist. Both use the overworld models of those Pokeacutemon, so as far as the player can tell, the disguises are flawless. Fun with Palindromes. Along with being derived from aloha . Alola is a palindrome. Fusion Dance. In Ultra Space, Lusamine willingly fuses with a Nihilego in order to defeat the player character. Once the battle is over, she is un-fused when Nebby knocks her out of the air . Game Face. Any Pokeacutemon surrounding itself with Z-Power will get this before it unleashes its Z-move. Gameplay and Story Integration : A minigame involves throwing Pyukumuku on the beach back into the sea for money, which ties in with its flavor text of people taking part-time jobs for Pyukumuku cleanup since its disliked by tourists. Additionally, Pyukumuku are said to always return to a spot they like, and the Pyukumuku in the minigame are always found in the same spots. Several Pokeacutemon are only found in ways that relate to their dex data or flavor text. Crabrawler, for example, can only be found in berry piles. Some Pokeacutemon called in SOS Battles are the natural predators of the Pokeacutemon that summoned them, and will proceed to try to knock them out rather than help them. The Pokeacutedex mentions that Bagon like to jump from high cliffs in an attempt to fly. While they can be found as a rare wild Pokeacutemon on Route 3, theyre slightly more common in Kalae Bay. In the former they can rarely SOS Call for Salamence, while in the latter they can call for Shelgon. The latters grass patches are directly overlooked by Route 3, so the Bagon likely got there by hurling themselves off the cliff, at which point they train in order to evolve into Salamence so that they can get back up. In order to begin a battle with a wild Wimpod, it usually must be chased down with Tauros, since its very fast and will flee as soon as the player character gets near it. Fittingly, Wimpods highest base stat by far is Speed, at 80. Big Bad Lusamine calls the player out that her cryogenically freezing her favorite Pokeacutemon is really no different than the player removing Pokeacutemon from their party and sentencing them to the same fate trapped in a PC. While such an argument would ring true in about any other generation, in this game PC Pokeacutemon are sent to the Pokeacute Pelago, a series of tropical islands where they can frolic and relax, which proves Lusamines methods wrong. The Pokeacutedex says that Guzzlord, having an immense appetite. eats everything in its path and hasnt been seen to leave any waste. In the game, Pokeacutemon who can learn Stockpile also learn Swallow and Spit Up, but Guzzlord cannot learn Spit Up, only Stockpile and Swallow. Gameplay and Story Segregation. The idea behind the Alolan variants is that theyre the result of the original variants adapting to the Alola region over time. Yet if you transfer a Pokeacutemon that doesnt have an Alolan variant but evolves into a Pokeacutemon that does (e.g. Pikachu and Exeggcute) from another generation, it will still evolve into the Alolan variant and not the original, as if Alola has the power to magically influence a Pokeacutemons evolution regardless of its region of origin. The Gardener. The Pokeacutemon left at Pokeacute Pelago are mundane gardeners, helping to grow berries that are planted there. Get Out. The two words (and nothing else) Gladion says if you enter his motel room and talk to him. Global Currency Exception. Battle Points (BP) are used at the Battle Royal building and at the Battle Tree, Festival Coins (FC) are the currency of the Festival Plaza, and just like in some previous titles, the Move Reminder will only take Heart Scales for her service. Go-Karting with Bowser. Come the post-game when Team Skulls evil motives are no more, Plumeria, the admin, shows up as a potential challenger in the Battle Tree who may show up every 10th battle in Super Battles if youre playing Sun. Moon players instead get Guzma. Good Costume Switch. After Team Skull is disbanded, all of the Grunts have taken off their Team Skull articles and look like Punk Girls and Punk Guys. Guzma has removed his tattoos and necklace, replaced his asymmetrical glasses with a pair with round frames, and covered the skull on his jacket with a red X. Plumeria has removed her tattoo and white eyeshadow, and she wears a Salazzle-themed bandanna and trousers instead of skull hair clips and black sweats. Got Me Doing It. The Team Skull Grunts pepper their speech with Yo. When you enter Po Town and go to the Pokeacutemon Center. one of the Grunts there asks if youd like to pay 10 Pokeacute Dollars to heal your team, and you answer with either Sounds good, yo, or No thanks, yo. Gotta Catch Them All : Besides the obvious (Pokeacutemon is the Trope Namer. after all), the Battle Tree allows players to encounter trainers from other generations, such as Sinnoh Champion Cynthia, Hoenn Rival Wally, and Unova Elite Four Member Grimsley, and then recruit them to be available as your Multi-Battle partners. They only appear every 10 battles in the Super-versions of the Battle Tree challenges, and you have to beat them (and spend 10 BP) to scout them, so getting them all can take a while. Gameplay wise, this trope is downplayed relative to the rest of the series and made more practical by eschewing a National Dex. This leaves a Regional Dex split between four islands, with only version exclusives and trade evolutions as any major obstacles. Needless to say, this makes it a lot easier to earn the Shiny Charm . Graceful Loser. These are the first games to show NPC Trainers striking a pose pre-battle and having a different pose after losing. A few of them take their loss rather well. For example, Veterans extend their hands for a handshake or applaud the winner, female Preschoolers appear to be jumping for joy, and Cooks have an eyebrow raised while smiling. Grail in the Garbage. You can buy the artifacts of several legendary Pokeacutemon, including those of Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, Groudon, and Kyogre. at a small shop in a mall. This is an Enforced Trope. as it is impossible to transfer items between generations. Graphics Induced Superdeformed. Averted. Unlike Pokmon X and Y and Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire . which, while upgraded to 3D models, still retained chibi-esque properties such as abnormally large heads and roughly similar character heights (AZ notwithstanding) for overworld characters as holdovers from the previous sprite-based titles, SunMoon are the first handheld games in the franchise where overworld character models are now normal-sized and realistically proportional to each other. Green Hill Zone. Melemele Island counts as this because most of the locales around the players house is grassland. Guide Dang It : The Festival Plaza is this in spades: there is no explanation given to how each facility works (or what they sell) until the player tries it for themselves, the game doesnt give any signs that some facilities are exclusive to one version. The only way to find out that the facility directly to the right of the bridge into the castle (the first slot) is what is shared to other players if they ask Do you know any good facilities is also easily missed. Good luck finding all of the Zygarde cells. For one, nothing in the game tells you that some only appear in the daytime and others only appear at night. Likewise, youre not told just how many are left on a given island, meaning you could turn the entire region over just to find the very last one you missed . Some Pokeacutemon cannot be found by standard running through the grass, surfing on the water and so on. Youll need to do SOS battles, which is basically having the Pokeacutemon call for help. Which Pokeacutemon calls which and which Pokeacutemon needs an SOS battle may require a little bit of reading. Veteran players already know that certain Pokeacutemon need exposure to a magnetic field to evolve and therefore need to level up in a specific area. However, the given area in these games is extremely counter-intuitive. One would guess the magnetic area is Blush Mountain, the area where the Geothermal Power Plant is located and some Electric-type Pokeacutemon like Elekid, Togedemaru and Charjabug can be found. Instead, the magnetic area is Vast Poni Canyon, which isnt related to electricity at all. The stats judge is first seen as very sleepy and brushes you off for not showing him something remarkable. The solution to wake him up is to hatch more than 20 eggs, something that his dialogue doesnt suggest at all. Hair Color Spoiler. Lillie and Gladion are Lusamines children. something that is evidenced by their identical hair and eye colors. Mohn, Lusamines husband, shares these and has a hairstyle that resembles Gladions . Halfway Plot Switch. While visiting the first two islands, the Island Trials are the main focus of the game, with Team Skull members showing up from time to time. This changes during the adventures on the third island, where the plot with Team Skull and the Aether Foundation takes over the story, while the Island Trials simply happen to be on the way . Hammerspace. A Magmar in Paniola Town gets a Quick Ball from . well. somewhere and gives it to the player as a gift. Harmless Electrocution. If you get the quiz questions wrong at the observatory, the security system will zap Sophocles. Its a far from pleasant experience, but hes perfectly fine afterward. Haunted Technology : Your Pokeacutedex is designed to let a Rotom take over it. It acts as a Fairy Companion . Its implied that the reason your Pokeacute Finder starts up on its own (sending the view to first-person) in the abandoned Megamart is that Mimikyu briefly took over it. Heroic Self-Deprecation. More than one: Nanu isnt really a bad trainer or a bad cop, but he clearly doubts his abilities in both areas and its left him in a deep blue funk as a result. The Team Skull Grunts have serious self-esteem issues, one of many reasons theyre in Team Skull. The ones guarding the door to their headquarters even assume youve come to mock them (which you have not). Team Skull Admin Plumeria, despite being a powerful Trainer and a Cool Big Sis to her Grunts, has self-esteem issues herself. After her HeelFace Turn. when she loses in subsequent Pokeacutemon League Title Defenses against the Champion. she says, I failed again. like I always do. I promised myself I wouldnt I told myself I would never fail again Hitbox Dissonance. Walking NPCs will stop and eventually turn around if you get in their way. You can stand at about arms length away from them and still be a roadblock to them. At the mall in Hauoli City, despite the entrance hallway being very wide, standing in the center causes every NPC coming in and out to halt and walk the other way. Henpecked Husband. Downplayed - an elderly man in the Malie apparel shop tells you its easier on him if he just lets his wife pick out his clothes. Hero of Another Story. By the end of the main storyline, Lillie goes off to Kanto to start her own journey and to see if there is a way to fully purge Nihilegos toxins from Lusamine . Hold the Line. Assuming that you cant defeat the mysterious Pokeacutemon, whose real identity is Nihilego at the Aether Foundation before a certain number of turns, . decides to turn tail and run. leading to victory by default. There is no penalty for letting it escape. Hold Your Hippogriffs. The Hawaiian phrase Aloha, used in English as both a greeting and a farewell, becomes Alola in the Alola region. Hotter and Sexier. Many of the female NPC and important adult characters look this way due to the lack of Super-Deformed sprites. Female adult characters like Plumeria and Olivia have quite the Sexy Walk going on, too. Theres also a lot more adult sexual innuendo at times, too. That said, the fanservice is made to be much more self-aware at times in the story with it constantly pointing it out. Horse of a Different Color. Trainers can now ride certain Pokeacutemon around the region, which can be summoned at any time after they are made accessible, but will not be added to the players party. Hot-Blooded. Just like in Gen. VI, any of your Pokeacutemon can be this during battle if they have enough Affection.Pokeacutemon melted the ice with its fiery determination so that Trainer wouldnt worry Human Aliens. If you show the red-shirted man in Haina Desert a Solrock or Lunatone, hell outright say that his home is in space and then teleport upward. Humanoid Abomination. Some of the Ultra Beasts look eerily human. Hurricane of Puns. The Pokeacute Pelago island names are Isle Abeens note Isle o Beans (lure Wild Pokeacutemon with beans), Isle Aplenny note Isle o Plenty (grow berries), Isle Aphun note Isle o Fun (treasure-hunting), Isle Evelup note I level up (training and stat-boosting), and Isle Avue note I love you (raise Happiness and speed up egg-hatching). I Got Bigger. Red and Blue, the two main characters from Pokmon Red and Blue . return as grown men. Impending Doom P.O.V. : The battle with the Totem Lurantis is preceded by a short scene from its POV as it approaches the player. Sophocles trial features several scenes set from the POV of the Totem Vikavolt as its making its way to the trial site. Impossibly Delicious Food. Rainbow -colored Pokeacute Beans apparently are so delicious, feeding three of them to a Pokeacutemon in Pokeacutemon Refresh maxes out its affection. Infinity1 Sword. In addition to the Regional Pseudo-legendary, the Jangmo-o line, it is no exaggeration to say that Ash-Greninja and Wishiwashis school form are stronger that most of the regions actual legendaries. Informed Attribute. At the start of the game, Kukui tells the player that Alola is chock full of nothin but rare Pokeacutemon. Sun and Moon have the lowest amount of Pokeacutemon available in-game since Emerald at 384 discounting the Magearna event, and in terms of percentage have the lowest amount of available Pokeacutemon out of any game in the series at 47 of all currently known Pokeacutemon. Instant Costume Change. The device you get to summon a Pokeacutemon mount also does this, switching your characters clothing to the appropriate a riding outfit. (Complete with helmet, by the way.) Notable in that this is the first time your trainer actually wears a swimsuit while traveling over water. Instantly Proven Wrong. Some time after your second battle with Hau, Lillie will tell you that shell keep a better eye on Nebby so it wont escape from her bag. Seconds later, Nebby creeps out from behind her. Insurmountable Waist-High Fence. Some of the roadblocks are rather flimsy excuses, particularly because what used to pass with sprites and four directions no longer does as well with full 3D models and omnidirectional movement: You cant exit Heahea City through the east exit directly outside the Pokeacutemon Center at first because a trainer is using Stoutland Search, and his Stoutland refuses to move until its checked the area thoroughly. ignoring the fact that the Stoutland blocks not even one-third of the road, and thats not counting the sidewalks, giving no reason why an on-foot trainer couldnt slip past. A later example has two Sudowoodo blocking your way south from Paniola Ranch, forcing you to finish the first Akala Island Trial before you can make them move. However, they dont block the whole path, leaving a sizable gap. but said gap is blocked by a random kid trainer, who just comments on how annoying it is for the path to be blocked (and rewards you later when you send the Sudowoodo away). Possibly justified, as the Sudowoodo (if they arent too set on trying to stand still and pass for trees) might move to block or attack anyone who attempted to squeeze past. Interface Screw. If you listen to the Abandoned Thrifty Megamart music with headphones on, theres an electronic drone throughout, and the music randomly cuts out in either channel, giving the impression your headphones are broken. In-Universe Game Clock. Wild encounters once again differ depending on the time. Furthermore, while Sun functions as normal, Moon s in-game time is shifted twelve hours ahead of the players, meaning its night in-game when playing during the day and vice versa. Once you become the champion, you can use the Ultra Wormhole at the Altar to travel into the world of the other game. This allows you to instantly switch between night and day, no matter what time it is in real life. Ironic Name. The names of the four Tapu ruins evoke this based on their location8212 The Ruins of Conflict are on the rather peaceful Melemele island the Ruins of Life are next to a graveyard on Akala island the Ruins of Abundance are past a seemingly endless desert on Ulaula island and the Ruins of Hope are on the Poni Breaker coast, which has black, volcanic soil everywhere, and is near the ruthless Vast Poni Canyon. However, theyre also Meaningful Names because they match the nature of its resident. Jungle Japes. The Lush Jungle on Akala Island, which is the largest dungeon area the player encounters by the time they reach it, a natural maze. King Mook. Totem Pokeacutemon, who are faced at the end of a trial. They are bigger and stronger than usual and can summon allies to aid them. Knight, Knave and Squire. The player, Gladion, and Hau respectively. The player, being The Hero. naturally fits the Knight archetype. Gladion is a loner who relies on his own strength and his only aim to become stronger, fitting the Knave archetype. Hau is by far the most optimistic of the three and started his journey at pretty much the same time as the player. Knight of Cerebus : Totem Mimikyus trial marks a darker tone shift that lasts right until Lusamine is defeated for the second time. Lusamine, when she reveals her true nature, is easily among the darkest villains in the mainstream games to date, if not the whole franchise. And surprisingly, shes as tragic as much as she is evil. Guzma surprisingly comes off as this. In contrast to his goofy grunts, the boss of Team Skull is actually intimidating due to his violent and erratic nature. The Ultra Beasts are unlike any Pokeacutemon in the series their alien nature makes them terrifying opponents. In particular, the first one you encounter (at Aether Paradise) is also the first genuinely threatening villain the player meets. Last Lousy Point. Zygarde CellsCores can easily become this if you just pick them up along the way if youre trying to track them down in the postgame - especially since some of them will only show up during daytime or nighttime, and the game doesnt bother telling you this. Late-Arrival Spoiler. When the official website updated its Pokeacutedex, it made no effort to hide the Ultra Beasts, their names, and the fact that theyre not distinct entities from Pokeacutemon as one is led to believe. Nor does it hide the fact that Solgaleo and Lunala are related to Cosmog, and by extension, each other through evolution. Later Installment Weirdness : Instead of HM moves needed to navigate the field, the player can summon Ride Pokeacutemon to navigate around Alola. Tauros and Sharpedo can smash through rocks, Lapras and Sharpedo can be used to surf, Charizard can fly, and Machamp pushes heavy boulders. The old HM moves still exist for battle use, but as TM moves instead. Its no longer possible to use any moves outside of battle at all, even non-HM moves like Sweet Scent and Dig. There are no Gyms in the game, with the token of plot advancement instead being the Island Trials. Gym badges are replaced with Z-Crystals. A Bicycle isnt available in this game as the player can ride Tauros and Stoutland, who move pretty fast. Fishing is only possible in certain bodies of water, and even then it can only be done in certain spots. There is no Pokeacutemon Day Care in the games at all. The closest thing is the Pokeacutemon Nursery in Paniola Ranch, which exists only to breed Pokeacutemon. Instead, Trainers who want to train Pokeacutemon not currently in their party have to use the Pokeacute Pelago, which is an in-game function slightly similar to Gen Vs Pokeacutemon Dream World. There is no Itemfinder or Dowsing Machine in the games. It is replaced by Stoutland. Trainer battles have animation that has evolved to the point where the opposing trainer is on screen during the entire battle, as opposed to the beginning and end. It more resembles Pokmon Colosseum than a typical handheld Pokeacutemon game. The PC is now used exclusively for storing Pokeacutemon. In previous games, it could also be used to see the Hall of Fame, and to have the Pokeacutedex appraised. The Hall of Fame is now seen by talking to a man outside the Pokeacutemon League, while the Pokeacutedex has a built-in appraisal system. Laymans Terms. In the post-game Ultra Beasts story, Looker and Anabel explain that your first mission is to capture UB-01 Symbiont. Your character doesnt understand what that means, so they attempt to put it in laymans terms by saying its Nihilegos code name. You still dont get it, so they explain outright that its the Ultra Beast that you first encountered in the Aether Foundation . Leaning on the Fourth Wall : Pikachus popularity started picking up twenty years ago, according to game lore. Thats when the first Pokeacutemon games were released and Pikachu started capturing the hearts of players. The shirt that Red wears says 96 - Pokeacutemon Red and Blue were released in 1996 . An Aether Foundation employee talking to a Poliwhirl whos hogging the water cooler says that its HP must be full by now, one of the rare in-story references to Pokeacutemon health represented by discrete points. Left the Background Music On. Two examples in Sophocles trial: When his device knocks out the power to the Hokulani Observatory, the BGM goes as well. The final question in the trial is What appears when you hear this music Then the Totem Pokeacutemon Leitmotif starts playing. Leitmotif. There is a different one for each of the four islands. In each case, the base song plays in the first grassy route you reach on that island. Certain important characters, like Lusamine and Guzma, have their own, too. Lemony Narrator. Some of the Pokeacutedex entries are quite casual, snarky, or otherwise unprofessional in tone compared to previous games. And since this Pokeacutedex is the first one in the series to truly be sentient, we should know where all the flavor might be coming from.Gengar . Should you feel yourself attacked by a sudden chill, it is evidence of an approaching Gengar. There is no escaping it. Give up. Lethal Joke Weapon. Splash, Celebrate, and Hold Hands, moves that normally do nothing, become this with a Normalium-Z. Z-Splash boosts Attack by 3 stages if used this way, while Z-Celebrate and Z-Hold Hands boosts every stat by 1 stage. Lethal Lava Land. Wela Volcano Park is an active volcano and is home to many Fire Pokeacutemon as well as Kiawes Fire-type trial. Letterbox. If the player gets close to an NPC that will battle them, the screen will narrow, focusing on the player and the NPC while the rest of the screen is black. Light is Not Good. The Team Skull members are pretty dark and are clearly criminals. However, theyre only the secondary bad guys, the actual villains being a group with spotlessly clean suits with predominantly white and gold colors, who maintain a place where is seems to exude brightness and radiance. They even use it as a shelter for endangered Pokeacutemon, who seem rather happy and content on the surface. Limit Break. Z-Moves, which are powerful moves that can be performed by Pokeacutemon once per battle, if the trainer has a Z-Ring and Z-Crystal. Some Pokeacutemon, like Snorlax and Alolan Raichu, have their own personal Z-Moves. Loophole Abuse. Normally, the trainers at the Battle Buffet can only be fought once a day. However, if the player leaves before 10 turns have passed, then the player can start over from the beginning, allowing players to use the Battle Buffet as much as they want. Luminescent Blush : Both male and female Sightseers sport this. Professor Burnet blushes as she leaves the Ruins of Life, wondering (or perhaps wondering) who the Masked Royal is. Magikarp Power. A few examples: The trope namer Magikarp itself is available as always and still provides a great example. Wishiwashi is pathetically weak until Lv 20, whereupon entering battle it grows into a monstrous form with greatly heightened attacking and defensive stats. Its similar to Magikarp in a sense, though its a form change rather than an evolution, and like Magikarp, the player has to deal with its weak attacking stats to get it to Lv 20. Its stat total is 175, the lowest in the series, but in its Schooling Form, it jumps up to a beastly 620, which is higher than most Legendaries. While Grubbin and its evolved from, Charjabug, have decent enough stats, but its special attack is nothing compared to what it becomes as a Vikavolt. Youre likely to get a Charjabug before you leave the first island, but it only evolves into Vikavolt at Vast Poni Canyon on the fourth island, one of the final areas of the game. You can mitigate this by giving it an Eviolite and heightening its already decent defenses, however. The Mareanie line is this from the defensive side of things. As a Mareanie, its overall stats are pretty underwhelming, but once it evolves into a Toxapex, it will receive a huge boost in both its Defense and Special Defense stats (which is a flat 90 in each), turning it into a formidable Stone Wall . Salandit is underwhelming, but Salazzle is quite fast and she has a great Special Attack stat. In order to make use of Salazzle though, you have to look for a female Salandit, but the Pokeacutemons gender ratio of 8 to 1 means that you have a 12.5 chance of encountering a female one. The Bounsweet line, like the Ralts-line beforehand, has quite mediocre stats, but upon fully evolving into Tsareena, all of its stats skyrocket. Wimpod and Golisopod as well: Wimpod has poor stats except for Speed. Unlike Magikarp, Wimpod is capable of learning more than three offensive attacks, ensuring it isnt dead weight during training. However, Wimpods only attacks by level up are Struggle Bug and Sand Attack, the former of which uses its inferior Special Attack (compared to its Attack), making leveling up without triggering Wimp Out or using TMs on it difficult. Its not so wimpy anymore once it evolves into Golisopod. The ultimate example of this trope is Cosmog. Like Magikarp, it has the same pitiful overall stats of 200. At level 43, it evolves into Cosmoem, increasing both its Defense and Special Defense stats by 100 points, but at this point, it only knows Splash, Teleport, and Cosmic Power. However, all of this changes when it reaches level 53, where it evolves into Solgaleo (in Sun ) or Lunala (in Moon ), becoming a powerhouse as Legendary Pokeacutemon tend to be. Meaningful Name. While the names of the Tapu ruins are ironic in regards to their location, they do reflect the nature of their residents: the Ruins of Conflict is home to Tapu Koko, who likes to fight the Ruins of Life is home to Tapu Lele, whose scales can cure people the Ruins of Abundance is home to Tapu Bulu, who can help plants grow and the Ruins of Hope is home to Tapu Fini, who inspires hope that it can heal people. Mega Corp.. The Aether Foundation is a corporation made to protect Pokeacutemon. Mle Trois. What a Battle Royal evokes: its a battle involving four Trainers at the same time with one Pokeacutemon out each, and they can target anyone on the field. The battle is over when any one Trainer has run out of Pokeacutemon, and the winner is determined by number of opponents knocked out. A Trainer whose Pokeacutemon have all fainted cant win even if they have the most KOs. Menswear Ghetto. Like in X and Y . male and female characters have roughly equal number of articles of clothing, but choices for males are restricted to a handful of styles in different colors (shorts, tees, tanks, sneakers, backpacks, and baseball caps), while female characters have more to choose from. Female characters also have more hairstyle options and can change their bangs. Mid Boss. A new game feature introduced in this Generation are the Route Bosses, aka the toughest trainer on a route. They will only battle you if you have already beaten all the other trainers on the route and their team employ tactics youd often seen in the competitive scene . Milking the Giant Cow. All NPCs have an animation they do as they speak, which usually involves waving their arms. They can come off as over-acting when they dont have much to say or the player keeps their dialogue box open long after they shouldve finished, and they keep making their motions even when the text describes an action, not diologue. Team Skull Grunts animations are especially dramatic, doing wild gesticulations like stereotypical gang bangers. Multi-Mook Melee. The SOS mechanic means that any wild Pokeacutemon encounter has a chance of going off the rails and becoming one. Musical Spoiler. Subtly done with Guzmas battle theme, which contains a short, distorted snippet of the Aether Foundation theme, hinting that hes working for them . My Name Is. . The Ultra Beasts appear as . in battle until they are caught and registered in the Pokeacutedex. Importantly, Looker and his team have given each of them codenames before they are caught. The only exception during the main story is Nihilego which is UB-01. Mysterious Backer. Lillie at first seems to fill this role, being a ditzy, emotional, and confused type who follows the player on their journey. In this case, however, her personality should be taken at face value. The Pokeacutemon she carries, on the other hand. Thats a little different . Mythology Gag : The Alolan Rite of Passage has several similarities to the anime-exclusive Orange League. Alolan Raichus light blue eyes and Surfer Dude theme may be a reference to Puka, an aged surfing Pikachu that appeared way back during a Filler episode set in the Indigo League in the anime. Another possibility is that it is a reference to the tendency for some games to depict Pikachu on a surfing board should it use Surf. The Snorlax Z-Move, Pulverizing Pancake, looks like a souped-up version of what Snorlax does as a Pokeacute Ball Pokeacutemon in Super Smash Bros. . The Pokeacute Finder is said to make taking photos a snap . One of the pictures in Totem Mimikyus room appears to depict Ash Ketchum in his Indigo League outfit with his Pikachu. At the beginning of the game, Nebby is being attacked by a flock of Spearow, and you try to defend it, and shortly afterwards Nebby creates a giant explosion to try to defeat them. After being rescued, you are treated to the sight of a rare Legendary Pokeacutemon. Sounds familiar Female Sightseers have smartphones, and at the beginning of a battle, they swipe the screen in a way that suggests theyre playing Pokmon Go . In several early games of the franchise, a female Swimmer trainer would claim she was a mermaid before the battle started. In this game, swimmer Alexandria on Route 15 quips, Im not a mermaid, Im a trainer in a bikini (Maybe because she likes to flaunt it) Nepotism. Molayne mentions that due to some, er, unusual circumstances on UlaUla Island, he appointed a Trial Captain instead of leaving the job to the Island Kahuna. While assuring himself and Sophocles that he made the right choice, he brings up that theyre cousins, suggesting that hes aware he may be biased during selection. Nerf : A number of healing items have had their effects reduced: Fresh Water has been reduced from 50 HP to 30 HP, Soda Pop has been reduced from 60 HP to 50 HP, Lemonade has been reduced from 80 HP to 70 HP, and Hyper Potions have been reduced from 200 HP to 120 HP. The Paralysis status effect now only drops the Speed of afflicted Pokeacutemon by half instead of quartering it. The Burn status deals less damage to afflicted Pokeacutemon. They only lose 116 of their total health at the end of each turn instead of 18. This also has a side effect of increasing the longevity of Pokeacutemon with Guts and a Flame Orb. The Confused status now has a 13 chance of causing a Pokeacutemon to hurt itself instead of 12 like previous games. The second hit dealt by Parental Bond deals 14 damage compared to first hit, rather than 12 as it does back in Generation VI. Bar some specific exceptions, moves given priority by the ability Prankster will now fail against Dark-types. The ability Gale Wings now only works when the user is at full HP, compared to how in Generation VI the HP didnt matter. Pixilate, Refrigerate, and Aerilate now boost the Normal moves they convert by 20 instead of 30. Gengar has Cursed Body as its ability instead of Levitate, so its now susceptible to Ground-type moves like it did back in the first two generations. Di samping itu. it will now get to enjoy the benefits of various Terrains if necessary, while also being able to absorb Toxic Spikes to support its team. Several abilities and a new Terrain, Psychic Terrain, are introduced that prevent priority moves from working. Dark Voids accuracy has been reduced from 90 to 50. In addition, it only works if Darkrai uses it, or a Pokeacutemon impersonating Darkrai through Transform or Impostor. If anything that isnt functionally Darkrai uses Dark Void, it will fail. Tackles Power has been decreased from 50 to 40, bringing it back in line with other early moves such as Pound and Scratch. Sucker Punchs power has gone down from 80 to 70. Thunder Wave was previously 100 accurate. Now its 90. Field moves like Teleport, Sweet Scent or Dig are no longer usable outside of battles, limiting their uses. Destiny Bond, instead of activating every time its used, now runs on the same accuracy counter as Detect, Protect, and Endure: The more times in a row its used, the less likely the move will be executed. The Soul Dew now only boosts the power of Psychic- and Dragon-type moves by 20 when held by LatiasLatios instead of boosting Special Attack and Special Defense by 50. When a Pokeacutemon Mega Evolves, the game checks for the Pokeacutemons new Ability and Speed during that turn, not the turn after. For most Mega Evolutions, this is a big boost (see Balance Buff above), but for a few Mega Evolutions, like Mega Ampharos and Mega Garchomp, this means they dont get the benefit of their higher Speed on their first turns. Mega Sableye is nerfed in a different way in that it used to be able to use both Prankster and Magic Bounce during the turn it Mega Evolves, but now it can only use Magic Bounce. Never Bare Headed. Averted for the first time in the main games outside specific circumstances: players will finally be able to completely remove their hats via character customization. Lampshaded, however, in that the players Nice Hat is the first piece of equipment heshe receives, and is complimented on by your mentor. Never My Fault. Lusamine thinks of her children as ungrateful for running away from her, even though she was horribly controlling towards them. Never Say Die. Averted. Death and similar terms are used freely just like in Red and Blue . as are religious terms such as god and demon for the first time in the series (presumably because of their use in other family-friendly Nintendo games such as The Legend of Zelda and the Pokeacutemon-featuring Super Smash Bros. ). Type: Null is even referred to as the Beast Killer. New Transfer Student. Some Japanese ads for the games involve a Japanese boy moving to Hawaii and bonding with local children over the games. This mirrors the actual game, where the player character is a boygirl from Kanto who has just moved into Alola. Noblewomans Laugh : Lusamine and Professor Burnet both laugh this way, though Burnet comes off as endearing. Among the Pokeacutemon, Tsareena has one that is adorable. Noisy Nature. In any area where wild Pokeacutemon can be encountered, their cries will play once in a while, sometimes over each other. Non-Action Guy. Dex Rotom does not battle any Pokeacutemon, nor do any of the Ride Pokeacutemon. Noob Cave. Verdant Cavern, home of Illimas trial. No OSHA Compliance. The original bridge to the Ruins of Conflict was terribly built, with multiple large gaps between the planks and very low handrails. In addition, while the bridges over the Vast Poni Canyon lack the gaps, they have no handrails at all. No Sell : Starting this generation, Dark-type Pokeacutemon are unaffected by moves that would gain priority from Prankster, presumably because as Combat Pragmatists. they can see right through the trickery. Two new Abilities, Dazzling and Queenly Majesty, prevent priority moves from taking effect. No Sense of Personal Space : Bewear is a Cuddle Bug and just wants to give people hugs. Since it can snap spines without meaning to, its nature makes it incredibly dangerous. Guzmas talking animation shows him leaning forward and getting up in peoples faces. Nostalgia Level : The Battle Tree where the player can fight Red and Blue . The main bridge in Malie Garden has people situated in a way that mimics the Nugget Bridge Trainers from Pokeacutemon Red and Blue . The Trainers teams consist of Pokeacutemon from those games, including ones that arent native to Alola, such as Ekans. Notice This. Items on the ground shine, and Nectar and Zygarde cores sparkle. Items dropped from Preexisting Encounters and broken rocks arent seen, but they sparkle and make sounds, and the player is prompted to press A to pick them up. Not So Different. Guzma attempts to cozy up to Kukui by playing on their shared background of being fellow rejects who never could become captains. Kukui rejects this by stating that he could have become a captain at any time but just simply chose a different path. Obvious Rule Patch : Bruxish. A Water-type with an ability that nullifies priority attacks Clearly an answer to the rise of Talonflame during Generation VI, by making a Pokeacutemon that negates its priority Flying moves and resists its Fire moves. Gale Wings only works if the Pokeacutemon using it has full HP. This is done to prevent Talonflame from spamming Brave Bird, a powerful move that does recoil damage to the user. The move Dark Void was nerfed due to complaints from the competitive VGC community about the move running rampant during the 16 ruleset. It will now fail unless the user is Darkrai to prevent Smeargle (who can copy any move in the game permanently and is tournament-legal, unlike Darkrai) from abusing it, and its accuracy is reduced to 50. Rayquaza loses its ability to Mega Evolve if its holding a Z-Crystal. Makes sense, since being able to both Mega Evolve and use a Z-move would allow it to practically one-shot anything that looked at it funny. Pokeacutemon transferred from Red, Blue, or Yellow will always have their Hidden Ability if they have one. Considering Machamp could learn Fissure in Generation 1 and can have No Guard as a normal ability, this could have been done to prevent this combination from wrecking nearly everything. Oh, Crap : When rescuing Lillie from Aether Paradise, Faba confronts the player and allies. After confirming Faba has the key to the Presidents office, Hau points out that if Faba had just hidden, the heroes wouldnt have had a chance to get that key from him. Cue this reaction from Faba. Gladions reaction when Nanu appears at the Malie ferry terminal might also count, seeing as the former is associated with a gang of delinquents and the latter is a cop. Luckily, Nanus only there to challenge the player as the island kahuna. Old Save Bonus. Pokeacutemon Bank and Pokeacutemon Transporter have compatibility for transferring your Mons from Pokmon X and Y . Omega RubyAlpha Sapphire . Pokmon Black and White . and Pokmon Black 2 and White 2 note Coincidentally, this makes the fifth Gen games the first games able to directly skip a Generation (not counting RedBlueYellow ) when transferring forward returns, and now includes transfers for the Virtual Console versions of RedBlueYellow . This makes the 2nd Gen titles the only games incompatible with the current games. However, as with previous generations, its not possible to transfer backwards, even if the Pokeacutemon only know existing moves. The National Dex, absent from Sun and Moon . is present on the Bank, and uses the combined Pokeacutedex information of all games used with it, so players dont need to transferbreed every Pokeacutemon all over again in every game. When a Pokeacutemon is transferred from RedBlueYellow to SunMoon . they will be given at least three maximum IVs (due to IVs being completely overhauled from Generation III onward), their nature, determined by how much EXP they have 9674 . as well as their Hidden Ability, if they have one. Older Than They Look : Lusamine looks like shes in her late teens or early 20s, when shes actually in her 40s. During the Eevium Z sidequest, most of the trainers you fight are elderly people who look their age. The Leafeon trainer, however, has the appearance of a female Swimmer, due to using multiple medical treatments . Olympus Mons. Sun and Moon introduced a slew of new Pokeacutemon that fit most of the criteria that most Legendary Pokeacutemon from previous games follow, but at the same time, they dont fit them all, leading to some confusion over whether they actually count or not: The Tapu are guardians of the islands and serve the same role as Legendary Pokeacutemon story-wise, but you can use them in battle facilities and official competitions where other Legendaries (at least major ones like Kyogre and Zekrom) are not. They also havent been officially stated to be Legendaries. The Ultra Beasts are Pokeacutemon from an alternate dimension. and while they display the same awesome power Legendaries typically possess, theyre regular Pokeacutemon in their own dimension . Type: Null and Silvally are stated to be a one-time experiment, with only three specimens ever being created, but Type: Null evolves into Silvally and one of them is used by Gladion. All of these Pokeacutemon (The Tapu, Ultra Beasts and Silvally) are incapable of breeding but their base stat total is at 570, which is actually a little weaker then the typical 580 to 600 Legendaries from past games tend to have, but still generally stronger then most regular non-Legenderies. The only Gen VII Pokeacutemon that can be classified as proper Legendaries both stat-wise and lore-wise could be Solgaleo, Lunala and Necrozma but even Solgaleo and Lunala are unique in that theyre both related via evolution and their earlier forms are quite weak on their own. No word yet on where Necrozma fits in. One Game for the Price of Two. As is tradition for the series, the games have differences in catchable Pokeacutemon and minor differences in plot, but will ultimately be extremely similar. One Head Taller. The Mystery Gift deliveryman is noticeably one head taller than just about every other NPC in the Pokeacutemon Center, most likely to make his appearance eye-catching so the player wont forget to pick up their gift. One-Hit KO. While there are no new moves or abilities introduced this generation relating to one-hit knockouts, the Battle Buffet at Hauoli City promotes this strategy. Theres more to the buffet than simply battling one diner per turn, but its much easier to get the highest satisfaction rating by knocking out Pokeacutemon in a single hit, thus getting as many dishes as possible. Only in It for the Money. The Swimmer Girls Kylie and Ashlyn have jobs in Kalos making the HMs Surf and Waterfall. but their production is state mandated, and are given to trainers for free. They came to Alola because the Pokeacutemon Ride system renders HMs redundant, so they figured they could sell them as regular TMs. Ironically, they give you the TMs for free because they were making promotional material to show off the moves and needed someone to battle. O.O.C. Is Serious Business. Looker and Anabel outright say that if the Ultra Beasts cant be helped, theyll need to be destroyed. Of course, this being a Pokeacutemon game, you cant actually do that . OrangeBlue Contrast. The games logos are primarily redorange and purpleblue. Also applies to the color schemes of the Legendary Mons. Our Wormholes Are Different. A major plot point in the game is the appearance of strange wormholes around Alola that are dubbed Ultra Wormholes. The wormholes that appear in the game connect to an alternate dimension known as Ultra Space and bring forth extra dimensional Pokeacutemon known as Ultra Beasts. Cosmog and its kin (AKA, Solgaleo and Lunala) are capable of creating these wormholes to freely travel from dimension to dimension. It is also implied that these wormholes also connect to other Alternate Universes and people have also traveled through these wormholes but little explanation is given and a side effect includes acute amnesia. These wormholes are also connected to the Island Trials in that Totem Pokeacutemon and Z-crystals are stated to get their power from energy that leaks from the wormholes. Outside-Context Problem. Ultra Beasts, a series of creatures that apparently arent actually Pokeacutemon, and are said to be major threats to humans and Pokeacutemon alike. Overly Long Fighting Animation. The Z-Moves all have animations that go on for nearly 20 seconds, as opposed to the few seconds that take normal moves. Overly Long Gag. Post-game, theres a man who will battle you in order to show off his shiny golden Exeggcute. After you win, he gives you some gifts that represent his beloved Pokeacutemon: six Big Nuggets. He hands them to you one at a time, with the receiving and putting-away animations and item obtained dings playing each time. Overly Nervous Flop Sweat. The new animations for Pursuit and Astonish have the target erupt a shower of sweat drops while being pursued or when hit by the attacker. Palmtree Panic. Alola, being a tropical region, naturally has a lot of coastline. Exeggutor Island fits the trope especially well, as an island in the shape of a palm tree Pokeacutemon. Parents as People. Hapu mentions the trope almost verbatim at the Altar of the SunneMoone, but notes that children are people too, and that they ought to be able to tell one another how they feel. Perpetual Smiler. The protagonist is seldom seen without a smile on hisher face, no matter the circumstances. The demo was even worse about this, as the player character wouldnt stop smiling even when a giant, enraged Hakamo-o ran towards him and roared in front of his face . Piata Enemy. Preexisting Encounters have a chance to drop items to collect in the overworld after battle. An NPC even states Wimpod drops valuable items in an attempt to distract its pursuer. Plot Coupon. Eleven of the eighteen type-specific Z-crystals are obtained as rewards for completing trials and are necessary to proceed with the adventure, effectively replacing badges in this game. The remaining seven are either given to the player during cutscenes, or are optional and well-hidden. Point of No Return. Once you start a Trial, you cant leave the complex until you finish it.

A Team Skull Grunt in Po Town guards the path to Guzma. He asks you to answer three questions about Guzma correctly, but to actually complete it, there is an additional step. Port Town. Alola has a number of them being a region of islands. The biggest is Heahea City on Akala Island. Power Up Mount. The ability to ride Pokeacutemon from X and Y is back. This time, most of them have saddles on their back.

Pstandard Psychic Pstance. Featured in the gestures for Psychic-type Z-Moves. Psychotic Smirk. Lusamine sports one, especially whenever an Ultra Beast appears on-screen. Pun : The Fighting-type specialist is the kahuna of Melemele Island, which would be pronounced like melee melee. Meanwhile, the kahuna of Poni Island is never seen without her Mudsdale, a horse Pokeacutemon. Theres also the new Pokeacutemon Bewear, which is a pun of Beware. Given its ability to hug trainers so hard that they Leave this world, its easy to see why.. Same goes for Crabrawler, which is a pun off of Crab and Brawler. It goes right in hand with the Kahuna of Melemele Island, who, as mentioned before, is a Fighting-type specialist and the Fighting-type member of the Elite Four at the end of the game.

While in development, Sun and Moon were also under the codename Pokeacutemon Rainbow . The top tier Pokeacute Beans available are rainbow ones, and it only takes three to max out affection. The Alolan greeting involves people moving their hands from head- to waist-level in the shape of a rainbow. Reality Ensues : Some of the new Pokeacutedex entries dont shy away from mentioning the natural order is in full effect when it comes to Pokeacutemon, like openly discussing that Gumshoos attacks Rattata with the intention of eating them, or that Toxapex rips off Corsola bits for food, though they do regrow. A few entries also make it clear that owning certain Mons can be very dangerous, such as Bewears Moon entry stating that trainers have left the world from having their spines shattered by overenthusiastic hugging. In the spirit of the natural order, sometimes in SOS battles, a Pokeacutemon may call in a helper who is actually a predator of theirs, causing the help to start attacking them instead. Your character, who given Alolas tropical climate can only wear light clothing, will shiver and quake when standing on the perpetually snowy Mount Lanakila. Once all of the Eevee users grew up, they couldnt spend all their time training Pokeacutemon any more and had to focus on their families and jobs, like any other adult. Being a Pokeacutemon Trainer is not a feasible career option for most people. Reality Is Unrealistic : Mount Lanakila is snow-capped - in a tropical region. This actually sounds very weird, except that its actually based on Mauna Kea . a real life mountain in Hawaii that experiences seasonal ice caps. Part of the reason behind fans being confused about Mudsdale was that it was introduced first (before its pre-evolution, Mudbray), and even then, some thought it was too big to be a horse. Actually, the Clydesdale horse is indeed around the size of a Mudsdale. The Reason You Suck Speech. Lillie gives one to Lusamine in Ultra Space when she is told that shes not worthy of her love for not being beautiful enough. and then Lusamine gives one back to the player Red Herring. Despite initial appearances, Team Skull isnt the main antagonistic organisation of this generation That title goes to the Aether Foundation. In fact, with a possible exception of Teams Aqua and Magma, theyre the first team that doesnt have some sort of supervillain plan. Red Oni, Blue Oni : Solgaleo and Lunala, from what weve seen of them. Solgaleo is frequently shown roaring, while Lunala seems to be more serene. Inverted with Litten and Popplio. Litten is a Fire-type and red-colored, but is The Stoic. while Popplio is a Water-type and blue-colored, but is clownish and fun-loving. The Grass starter Rowlet is in the middle.

After defeating Guzma in Po Town, Lillie and Nebby get kidnapped, and Gladion recruits you and Hau into invading Aether Paradise to save them. And a direct sequel to that would be you and Lillie travelling through Vast Poni Canyon to reach the Altar of the SunMoone, to save Lusamine and Guzma from Ultra Space. Retool : Gyms were a mainstay of the main Pokeacutemon games. This time around, Alola does not have a Gym system and instead theyve been replaced by island challenges given by trial captains and Island Kahunas. One of the fundamental changes is that you battle 4 Kahunas instead of 8 gyms. Another aspect thats different from previous games are the Z-Crystals. These serve as both proof that youve completed a trial successfully (similar to Badges) and are also used in powering up your Pokeacutemon in battle (Much like Mega Stones). In addition, the trials often pit you against a powered-up wild Pokeacutemon as opposed to another trainer and their team. In addition, HMs are no longer needed for overworld travel, having been replaced by the Pokeacutemon Ride system, where you can call a variety of Pokeacutemon to do tasks for you. Tauros and Sharpedo replace Rock Smash on land and water, respectively Lapras and Sharpedo replace Surf Machamp replaces Strength and Charizard replaces Fly. There are even some items that are replaced by this function- a Stoutland is the replacement for the Dowsing Machine from previous games, and Tauros replaces the Bikes. Unlike most examples, this isnt a sweeping change but rather due to Alola culture prohibiting Pokeacutemon outside of Ride Pokeacutemon from using HM moves outside of battle, as the NPCs who give the TMs for Fly, Surf and Waterfall found out. Rhymes on a Dime. The two Team Skull Grunts inhabiting the Team Skull-controlled Po Towns Pokeacutemon Center speak like this. Its certain that their lines arent rehearsed, since they comment on your unexpected presence when you visit them again after Team Skull is disbanded . Ridiculously Cute Critter. This being a Pokeacutemon game, examples are abundant and inevitable, especially in Pokeacutemon Refresh. Not even the Ultra Beasts are immune to this treatment . Right Behind You.

Running Gag : The mother of the player character never finishing unpacking despite repeatedly saying she will (but also saying she dislikes it). The boxes are all still there at the end of the game.

When you first travel to Route 15 and meet Grimsley, he tells you he will flip a coin, and you must guess heads or tails. Choosing heads or tails leads to the same outcome: Grimsley congratulates you for guessing correctly and registers Sharpedo on your Ride Pager. If you pick neither. he will admit that he was going to have a Skarmory snatch it out of the air, and he congratulates you for guessing correctly and registers Sharpedo on your Ride Pager. Secret Art : Most Z-Moves can be used by any Pokeacutemon who knows a move that corresponds to the Z-Crystal theyre holding, but some are unique to specific Pokeacutemon, and require special Z-Crystals, like Pikachu, Alolan Raichu, Eevee, Snorlax, the island guardians (who all share one) and the final evolutions of the three Alola starters. As usual in a Pokeacutemon core series game, several regular exclusive attacks were introduced, such as Trop Kick for Tsareena and Shore Up for the Sandygast line. Others were changed between generations so Pokeacutemon gained or lost exclusive moves. For instance, while Cut was an HM move from Gen. I-VI, there are no HMs in Alola, so Kartana became the only Pokeacutemon capable of learning it. Sequel Difficulty Spike : Perhaps in response to complaints of Pokmon X and Y . and more importantly Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire . being on the easier side, Sun and Moon have a sharper difficulty curve and a number of tricks, particularly with the Totem Pokeacutemon and Z-Moves, that lead to a significantly more difficult experience than the previous set of games if you dont over-level your teams. Over-leveling is also harder to do since the Anti-Grinding experience system from Black and White is back. And even when you do overlevel your teams, your opponents will most likely still have tricks up their sleeves that will give them an upper hand. Its gotten to the point where people believe these are the hardest Pokeacutemon games besides Colosseum and Gale of Darkness . The Battle Tree in the post game doesnt pull any punches. Unlike the Battle Maison. which typically had very easy (and somewhat boring) challenges for the first 10 or so matches, Battle Tree immediately starts with difficult trainers with fully evolved and smartly equipped Pokeacutemon that can overwhelm an unprepared player. There are also random trainers that can use Z-Moves and even Mega Evolutions. Sexy Discretion Shot. Downplayed with Solgaleo and Lunala.

Before the games release, people liked to ship Professor Kukui with various characters. It is eventually revealed that hes married to Professor Burnet . Ship Tease : Its hinted Lillie might have developed a crush on the player by the end of the main story. It is hinted Hau may have also developed a crush on Lillie, saying he has so much to tell her before she leaves for Kanto. This also happens between Solgaleo and Lunala, of all things. Theyre believed to be the male and female evolutions of Cosmog, respectively (despite being genderless), and traveling to the other versions dimension with your version mascot results in both Legendaries meeting and producing a new Cosmog . Shout-Out : Alolan Raticates entry on the official website states There are rumors that a certain top-notch restaurant takes advantage of Alolan Raticates taste buds by bringing it along when choosing ingredients to buy, and having it taste test new dishes . When the Team Skull grunts intrude on your first trial, one of them has this to say.

A police officer in Route 13s motel garage is a fan of The Lone Ranger . The animations for several Z-Moves look suspiciously similar to famous attacks from other franchises: The Ghost-type Z-Move, Never-Ending Nightmare, looks a lot like Unseen Hands. as both attacks utilize shadowy hands to attack a foe. The Steel-type Z-Move, Corkscrew Crash, looks similar to the Giga Drill Breaker . The Dragon Z-Move, Devastating Drake, is a shout out to Golden Sun: The Lost Age . One of the games Summon Magic. Catastrophe, which manifested a knight that unleashed a giant purple dragon to ram into and explode on foes. Pokeacutemon that use Devastating Drake unleash. a giant purple dragon to ram into and explode on foes.

Neither attacks are classified as fire elemental despite their visuals. Midnight Lycanrocs shiny coloration is awfully similar to another video game werewolf . Lurantis signature move, Solar Blade, is used is a near-identical way to a Program Advance . Shown Their Work : The Steel typing for Solgaleo initially baffled most people. Researching further, however, shows that Game Freak knew that this makes more sense than it seems, as Solgaleo is described as a Beast that Devours the Sun. The main symbol of Alchemy is that of a lion that bites into the sun, hence not only being identical to Sogaleos description, but Alchemy was the science of purifying metal . Hence the Steel typing. It also helps that it is theorized that the sun might have been a ball of molten metal at some point. The Z-Move activation poses appear to be based on hula dance steps. For instance, the Hydro Vortex pose is a common motion used to show large wavesturbulent water. Pikipeks feet are zygodactyl (two toes in front, two in back), just like real life woodpeckers. Yungoos origins8212its not native to the islands, but was brought in to deal with the Rattata population. This backfired when the Rattata adapted and became nocturnal to avoid the diurnal Yungoos, and in the process Yungoos became an invasive species. In real life, mongooses were introduced to Hawaii to deal with rat populations and it backfired in a similar way rats are nocturnal and mongooses are diurnal, so the two species never interacted. The Alolan variants of certain Pokeacutemon are almost perfect representations of real evolution8212they have changed gradually in response to environmental pressures. For example, Alolan Exeggutor gained a longer neck to take better advantage of the massive amounts of sunlight in the region, Alolan Marowaks danger sense was developed to give it an edge against omnipresent Grass-type predators, Alolan Sandshrew and Sandslash moved to snowy mountains because their traditional desert habitat was becoming more inhospitable from volcanic eruptions, and Vulpix avoided competition with other Pokeacutemon by migrating to colder regions, where they adapted to the cold.

With the new pre- and after-battle poses in these games, a few Trainer classes are shown to be this, such as Beauties (who scowl while putting their hands on their hips) and male Preschoolers (who throw a fit). Soundtrack Dissonance. In previous games, graveyard areas were generally accompanied by sad or creepy music, as they were usually filled with characters mourning the loss of loved ones, as well as being a place to catch Ghost types. The Hauoli Cemetery theme, by comparison, is shamelessly cheery and bouncy. Source Music. The Thrifty Megamart music is far tinnier than the rest of the music in the game, implying that its playing in the store itself. Spoiler. invoked In the Festival Plaza, players whispering Listen Listen may want to share various things theyve done in their games with you, and they warn you that they may share something that you havent done yet. Spoiler Opening : Only just after making their character, the player seees a cutscene of Lillie running away from some Aether Foundation employees. Though presumably intended to paint Lillie in a negative light at first, both it and the later revelation of the Aether Foundation being the villains are undermined by said employees making very obvious snarling bad guy faces . As with most other Pokeacutemon games, whenever starting the game, the player will hear the mascot legendary cry on the title screen. However, whenever hearing Nebby (Cosmog)s cry. a player may join the dots and recognise The Reveal well in advance. Its worse in Moon . since Lunalas cry sounds much more like Cosmogs than Solgaleos does, and it even physically resembles Cosmog slightly . Stalker Shrine. Mimikyus hidden room in the abandoned Thrifty Megamart is decorated with posters and flyers of Pikachu. Stealth Pun. Komala, which is always asleep, is 222 in the Alolan Pokeacutedex. Strange Salute. When Alolans greet each other, they may accompany Alola with a gesture where they move both hands from head-level downward in a half-oval shape, evoking a rainbow. Super Mode : In addition to performing Z-Moves, the Z-Rings can be used to trigger Mega Evolution. A limited-edition Greninja available with the games demo has the special ability Battle Bond, letting it transform into Ash-Greninja from the anime. Surprise Creepy. The first half of the game is much more lighthearted than previous games Alola is a much more laid-back region than others, and unlike Teams Galactic, Plasma, or Flare, all of whom wanted to take over the world in different ways, all Team Skull wants to do is cause chaos and mayhem, and even then, there is a good team that is bent on stopping them: the Aether Foundation. Then the Foundations president Lusamine reveals her true colors, and the game suddenly takes a very dark turn. And dont think that youll be free in the postgame, because you then get to hear how terrifying the Ultra Beasts actually are. This gets taken even further because the game uses the same graphical style as always only slightly less chibi looking and that the game was advertised in a way that made it quite kid friendly. Suspiciously Similar Substitute. Professor Samson Oak - cousin of Samuel Oak - appears in the game, researching Alolan Forms. He looks extremely similar to his relative in Kanto, making him the very thing that hes researching Take a Third Option. When the player encounters Grimsley on Route 15, he will ask what the outcome of a coin flip hes about to do will be. Other than the obvious options of heads and tails, the player can opt to say neither. If this is chosen as the answer, Grimsley admits that he had planned to cheat by having a Skarmory catch the coin in mid-air. Talking Animal : For the first time in the series, several Pokeacutemon actually seem to be forming coherent sentences when they speak 8212 everything from a Gumshoos saying Buzzaff in Sun or an Raticate saying Scram in Moon, to a Sudowoodo saying Lies note Albeit this might be a mistranslation due of Sudowoodos Japanese name. to Totem Mimikyu exclaiming Seeeee meee in its trial and Tapu Koko exclaiming IT IS TIME when you fight it . Rotom frequently talks with the player through the Pokeacutedex it inhabits. There Is No Kill Like Overkill. When you go to some Sudowoodo roadblocks with a Waterium Z, they flee. An NPC informs you that Lana has used a Water-type Z-Move against them before. Taking into account that her Araquanid (with STAB and Water Bubble) is the one holding the Z-Crystal, Water is super effective against Rock, and an offensive Z-Move has at least 100 base power, she attacked the Sudowoodo with way more power than was necessary. Thin Dimensional Barrier. The Alola region is host to a rare phenomenon known as the Ultra Wormhole. In the past, creatures from Ultra Space including the Ultra Beasts and the mascot legendaries have emerged from these wormholes, requiring the intervention of the Island Guardians to repel them.

Trailers Always Spoil. Many new Pokeacutemon, Alola variant, and Ultra Beast was shown off at one point or another by trailers and bios on the official website. Notable things that werent revealed were Necrozmas name (though Necrozma itself was still revealed), those of the Ultra Beasts (whom were referred to by codenames and presented as different creatures from Pokeacutemon). and the Pokeacutemon Cosmoem. who itself spoils quite a few twists just by looking at it and seeing some similarities to another Pokeacutemon.

Hano Grand Resort had to establish Pyukumuku Chucking as an official job at the hotel because Pyukumuku are constantly crawling onto Hano Beach for food. And if theres food left, Pyukumuku will continue to stay there to the point of starvation. This deters visitors from staying at the Hotel and walking on the beach as Pyukumuku constitute a stepping hazard and a smelly, ugly mess that needs to be cleaned up quickly.

It also walks upright, having gone one step up the Sliding Scale of Anthropomorphism . The Alolan Grimer line gains the Dark type after eating too much garbage.

The Alolan Diglett and Dugtrio gain the Steel type, having gained metal hair to alert them to seismic events. The Alolan Geodude line are RockElectic type, due to magnetic properties.

The phrasing of the description for the Fairy-type Z-Move Twinkle Tackle dips into this.The user creates a very charming space using its Z-Power and totally toys with the target. Video Game Cruelty Potential : SOS Battles involve a wild Pokeacutemon calling for help. In order to catch several Pokeacutemon that cant otherwise be found in the wild, you must keep that Pokeacutemon on the field, letting it call for help and waiting as the Random Number God determines whether the Pokeacutemon that appears is the one you want. A Pokeacutemon with lower health is more likely to call for help, so often theyll have a sliver of HP left for many turns before the right Pokeacutemon appears beside them, after which theyre knocked out. Using an Adrenaline Orb makes wild Pokeacutemon nervous and more likely to call for help, as does facing them with a Pokeacutemon with Unnerve, Intimidate, or Pressure. Furthermore, some Pokeacutemon have predator-prey relationships with others, and the predator Pokeacutemon can be summoned by the prey. This can amount to the player deliberately keeping the prey in question alive but at low health so it will call for help, effectively being used as bait for their predators. In Kiawes trial, you can continue to get the answers wrong even though theyre extremely obvious in order to keep fighting his Marowak and grind.

Lusamine and the Aether Foundation are held up as selfless protectors of Pokeacutemon heroically fighting against Team Skull. but theyre actually a crazy cult that works with Team Skull and performs horrible experiments on the Pokeacutemon they rescue . with the intention of summoning the Ultra Beasts and wiping out humanity. Lusamine in particular is basically your typical politicalcelebrity Narcissist. who smiles and looks pretty for the cameras while conducting thier nasty business (in this case, abusing her children ) away from the public eye. Virtual Pet. The Pokeacutemon-Amie feature from the previous generation gets upgraded to Pokeacutemon Refresh. In addition to the original petting and feeding features, it now allows you groom your Pokeacutemon after they get dirty or mussed in battle, dry them off if they get wet, and even treat Standard Status Effects using appropriate tools. Wake-Up Call Boss : Gladion, as far as both gameplay and plot goes, is one. He starts out as the typical bad guy of the type seen in these games - arrogant, rude, pushing your character off as insignificant - and his first Pokeacutemon is a typical Zubat. Then brings out his second, a previously unseen Mon: Type: Null. It has the same base stat total as a fully evolved starter Pokeacutemon, meaning youre facing a trainer with a Pokeacutemon with fully evolved stats before you even reach the second Trial. While its not as tough as a typical Legendary, its a very unsubtle foreshadowing. And immediately following Gladion is the next trial boss, Totem Wishiwashi, which thanks to the Totem Pokeacutemons Artificial Brilliance is actually a credible threat. Unlike wild Wishiwashi, the Totem Wishiwashis Schooling ability functions properly, pitting you against a behemoth that has well over 100 in all of its offense and defense stats in addition to the totem boost. Making it worse is that it can S.O.S. another Wishiwashi, which has Helping Hand, or Alomomola, which has Heal Pulse to restore Totem Wishiwashis HP on top of Helping Hand and its own respectable bulk. You will need a Grass-type for this fight unless youre very overleveled. Before any of them, Totem GumshoosAlolan Raticate, depending on the version. This fight can be a bit of a shock, especially if youre going in blind. This Pokeacutemon fight shows that this will not be any sort of ordinary Pokeacutemon Gym Battle of old, between the first usage of the Totem Power and will probably be the first Pokeacutemon to summon help. note The game does offer a concession in the form of a TM, which contains Brick Break, which both Gumshoos and especially Alolan Raticate are weak to. Walking Shirtless Scene. Kukui. who wears a lab coat with nothing underneath. In his Masked Royal persona, he does away with the coat. Welcome to the Caribbean, Mon.

Namely, its confirmed that the Aether Foundation was Evil All Along. they financially back Team Skull, and Lusamine is planning to use Cosmogs power to open Ultra Wormholes so she can capture the Ultra Beasts and destroy Alola. On top of all that, Lusamine is revealed to be the mother of both Lillie and Gladion. Wham Line : This line during the Wham Episode mentioned above not only gives you some insight into Gladion and Lillies backstory, its also the first indication into Lusamines true colors .Gladion: I was like an ornament to my mother. Wearing whatever she told me to wear, acting however she wanted me to act. The truth about Lillie and her mother, Lusamine, comes out:Lillie: I dont need your approval, mother And the other half of that:Lusamine: The daughter who stole my Cosmog from me, and the son who took my Type: Null Before all of that, when you first find out that Gladion knows Lillie.Gladion: (upon overhearing that Lillie was kidnapped) Did I hear that right It was Lillie who took Cosmog. And another one a little later, connecting Gladion to the Aether Foundation and Lusamine.Assistant Branch Chief Wicke: (to Gladion) Young master. Kukui joins you in the Champions Chamber:Wolverine Publicity : Charizard is a Ride Pokeacutemon despite being unobtainable via normal gameplay, let alone in the Alola dex (despite the fact that two other sets of starter Pokeacutemon besides Alolas are obtainable via Island Scan). However, it will eventually be available without transferring via QR Code from a collectible Moncolleacute GET figure. Greninja is the only Starter Pokeacutemon not from Alola, Johto or Unova to be obtainable in the game, thanks to the Demo Version. This is to properly show off its Super Mode. as its the only Kalos starter with one (further reinforcing this trope). The Worf Effect : The trailer seen here shows Solgaleo defeat Salamence with just one Sunsteel Strike. The reveal trailer for the alternate Zygarde Formes shows 10 percent Zygarde knocking out a Metagross. and Complete Zygarde wiping out a Garchomp .

This trope is lampshaded twice by Team Skull Grunts: after failing to steal Berries from an old man, they battle you again while youre on your first Trial. If you tell them you remember them from before, one of the Grunts admits hes impressed you recognized them because they both look identical. In Po Town, you come across two arguing female Grunts. One of them is angry that the other is wearing her shirt. They consider writing their names on their clothes but note that it wouldnt help because theyre both called Grunt. You Kill It, You Bought It. Non-lethal example should you become Champion. This is the first game where you actually have to defend that title should you gain it. In the post-game, sitting in the Champions chair causes such a challenger - randomly chosen from ten possibilities including Hau and Kukui - to appear. Your Size May Vary : Unlike the previous generation, trainers are shown next to their Pokeacutemon in battle. As with previous games, though, large Pokeacutemon are scaled down from what their Pokeacutedex entries specify in order to fit on the battlefield. This leads to hilarious results when an enormous Pokeacutemon such as Wailord appears to be no bigger than a child. According to its Pokeacutedex entry, Golisopod is 67. Guzma is tall even when slouching (and his height is noted a few times), but in the credits portrait, Guzmas Golisopod stands quite a bit higher than that. Alternative Title(s): Pokemon Sun.
