Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon

Subtle Changes To Familiar Scenery
by Kyle Hilliard
Concept:

Experience a profound sense of déjà vu as you return to Alola to relive your Pokémon Sun and Moon adventures


Graphics:

The visuals have not been changed or upgraded since the original release. The art direction and animation are both some of the best visuals the 3DS has to offer


Sound:

The ukulele-infused versions of familiar Pokémon themes continue to charm


Playability:

The excellent changes to the controls (Grid-based movement is dead!) and improved menu management put in place in Sun and Moon are still here


Entertainment:

You won't find much incentive to return to Alola if you enjoyed your original trip, but if you skipped Sun and Moon's 2016 release and want to play a new Pokémon game, this is your best bet


Replay:

High

Starting with Pokémon Yellow in 1999, Game Freak has been revisiting its core Pokémon games for follow-ups that tweak the original releases in subtle but interesting ways. Excluding remakes, every generation until Pokémon Black & White received some kind of secondary release. Game Freak seemed to be moving away from this practice, but after Pokémon Sun and Moon became one of the most commercially successful entries in the franchise, it was no surprise to see the developer resurrect the concept. Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are not new Pokémon games, making them a difficult recommendation to those who already played the 2016 titles, but if you skipped Sun and Moon, this is a fantastic place to jump on.

Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon may not be a sequel to Sun and Moon, but it is more than a straight re-release. The things I liked about Sun and Moon are thankfully all here. The improved controls and animation, the new Trial system that replaces gym-badge collecting, and using Pokémon mounts instead of HMs. The things that are new make Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon feel like a director's cut; entire storylines and characters that did not make it into the original release appear here, and the editing makes certain elements flow differently (and often better). One example is your starter Pokémon - you get it much faster here than you did previously, with less pomp and circumstance to the whole affair. It means you can get to training and fighting faster, with less dialogue setting up the story and world.

Other changes include the new Alola Photo Club mode, which is surprisingly shallow. The mode is discovered about five hours in, and lets you take photos of yourself and a Pokémon of your choice in assorted poses and cover that photo in stamps. It's cute, and not worth complaining about, but it adds nothing significant to the experience.

Mantine surfing lets you travel between islands by surfing on the back of a Mantine, another addition I enjoyed. Again, it's not an explicit reason to play Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, but this mode is unlike anything that has appeared in a core Pokémon game before, and I liked pulling off stunts and riding the waves on my way to new islands.

Discover the Legendary Pokémon Solgaleo and Lunala's new Z-Moves and their mysterious connection to the Legendary Pokémon Necrozma. Then venture into Ultra Wormholes to explore the Ultra Beasts' home world, encounter every Legendary Pokémon, and uncover Ultra Megalopolis, a dark world where Necrozma has stolen the light. On the bright side, the Alola region has new activities, and fresh landscapes to explore with some assistance from your powered-up Rotom Dex. You'll need all the help you can get if you're going to stop Giovanni, Ghetsis, and the rest of Team Rainbow Rocket from taking over the Alola region!
