The Pokémon franchise celebrated it’s 20th birthday this year with a VC rerelease of the original GameBoy games on 3DS, saw the revival of the Pokémon craze from back in the late 90’s and of course gave us the birth of the seventh generation of Pokémon in Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. The latest installments of the popular franchise have a lot to live up to given how popular the series has been during its twenty year existence. So far, the Pokémon series has always played it safe, with minimal but crucial changes, improving the core gameplay only a step at a time, each generation’s biggest change being the introduction of a hundred-or-so new creatures to catch and train. Pokemon Sun and Moon don’t quite introduce as many new Pokémon, but rather refresh the feel of the overall game, and with success. Sun and Moon quite probably feel the freshest of all main Pokémon games since the release of the original generation.
