Its November. Safe enough to say that the year 2016 has been a rude nightmare for many of us across the world. The shock results of the UK referendum, the disillusionment caused by the US elections, the heart-rending tragedies in Syria and the tragic and nightmarish consequences of the Indian demonetization – I could go on. Sometimes, its just nice to put all this aside and escape into a world where there is sunshine, moonlight, happiness, laughter and Pokémon.
A world that transcends countries and communities, bringing nostalgia and social engagement of a glorious kind. Game Freak’s newly launched Pokémon Sun and Moon could just be the one. If you love the world of Pokémon , this game will hopefully provide the soothing balm to see you through the last stretch of 2016. Here are all the details.
Pokémon Sun and Moon Features and Gameplay
In Pokémon Sun and Moon players take on the role of a young Pokémon trainer from the Kanto region. This time the trainer makes his way to 4 Hawaii-inspired islands of Alola, where exists plenty of new Pokémon iterations. Typically, trainers go on quests to catch and train the various new species of Pokémon. After training them they set out to battle other trainers for victory and glory.
There is always a villain lurking in the shadows – even in the unreal world. Therefore players must pull up their socks and fight off the nefarious criminal organization Team Skull, while still challenging other powerful Pokémon trainers.

The game also brings interesting technical changes such as new battle systems and Island Trials.
