I’ve been skeptical about Pokémon Ultra Sun and Moon.
Not only have I yet to finish regular Pokémon Moon (I mentioned this back in August and still haven’t gone back to it), but it disappointed me that Ultra Sun and Moon aren’t sequels.
The latest story trailer, however, made me genuinely excited about these games.
That trailer is way too epic for a Pokémon game. Between the music, the content, and the bold declaration that “This isn’t the Alola you thought you knew,” it really caught my attention.
It reminded me of when I first started Pokémon White and saw the intro. My immediate reaction was to check that I really was playing Pokémon and not some other JRPG, because it seemed so cool and out of place in a series that typically had basic plots.
And if the Pokémon Ultra Sun and Moon story trailer wasn’t enough, a recent interview revealed that the stories diverge early on, there is an additional post-game episode, the changes are even greater than those in Emerald and Platinum, and the overall scenario is about twice as long as that of Sun and Moon.
I was skeptical of these games because they aren’t sequels, but that sounds like a lot of added story content.
In short, the story trailer for Pokémon Ultra Sun and Moon won me over, and now I’m interested in these games. The only question is if I should finish Moon first.
