What is Pokémon Sun and Moon?

Sun and Moon are the latest two mirror games of Nintendo’s Pokémon series available on the Nintendo 3DS handheld game system. Both games share the same story arc but feature different Pokémon, which are monsters that the main character tames. In the Sun and Moon games, the player travels through a land based on Hawaii’s islands and attempts to clear “trials” which determine their skill as a trial-goer. Players level up their Pokémon in order to take on the more difficult challenges, and try to stop the antagonistic Team Skull gang from vandalizing the region.

In 1997, GameFreak began the Pokémon journey with the Gameboy, and in those 20 years, the game series has progressed in graphics and Pokémon variety. However, the story has always been fantastic. Now, on the Nintendo 3DS, you can embark on a journey of self-fulfillment, whilst conquering your inner and exterior demons, and battle with friends. And that’s what the tournament is about: Friendship.
