For longtime fans, there are a few new Pokemon added exclusively in Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon and there are more catchable, wild Pokemon than previous games. Unfortunately, for people who played Sun and Moon extensively, you will have to go through quite a bit of old content before you get to the newer content towards the end. That said, Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon are the definitive versions of the 4 games.

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon doesn't deviate much from its predecessor, but makes enough changes to deliver an experience that is notably better.

With Pokémon’s confirmed Switch future, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon could be Pokémon’s final core installment on a dedicated handheld system. As a revisiting of the excellent Sun and Moon, it feels like a good note to close the generation on, but if you had your fill with Sun and Moon, don’t worry – you aren’t missing anything important.

The story feels lesser than before and Rotom simply doesn't want to stay silent. On the flip side, the new slew of activities are a lot of fun and make it feel a bit friendlier. If you can deal with the same slow opening, you will find truly some stuff to like as you explore Alola for the second time.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Moon are very good third-version games. They expand the story alongside as well as the post-game, and barring some not-ideal motion controls and a slow intro, there's very little to complain about. It may be the same game as last year with a bunch of new stuff on top, but considering this is one of Pokémon's finest generations yet, I have zero problem with more of a good thing.

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are proper send-offs for what could be the last time we see the series on a handheld. Packed with hours of content and a lot more Pokemon to catch, they are more than enough to hold you over until Pokemon Switch.

If you already own Sun and Moon and aren't thrilled at the aspect of traveling through Alola again, you might want to pass, because a lot of the new stuff is post game. If you haven't played Sun and Moon, or any entry in the series in a while, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon is a great place to pick up the series again.

Jason Faulkner Nov 17, 2017



Though they aren't very different from their predecessors, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon make enough changes to stand apart as the definitive version of the seventh generation games. An overly complicated story is offset by charming details that bring even more life to the most vibrant Pokemon region to date, and small fixes iron out the shakier parts of the original journey.

Despite the many improvements that Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon make on Sun and Moon, I have a hard time calling them “definitive” versions of Generation VII or the Alola region or anything like that. Despite the improvements these games make, there were also plenty of things that, as I’ve stated, changed for the worse, or things that were changed for no real reason, but that didn’t really impact me one way or the other.

Dylan Siegler Nov 30, 2017



It’s nice to see, especially when this game can last close to 50 hours if players are inclined to do almost everything. It’s still a very enjoyable game that kept me interested throughout. The bigger question is, do players want to come back for a second time within a year to see the new content?

Drew Leachman Nov 30, 2017



You’d be forgiven for not wanting to jump back into the same world again so soon but, in their own right, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are truly incredible entries to the series that deserve to be sitting amongst the elite Pokémon titles. If you’re ready for another trip around Alola’s beautiful islands, this is the way to do it.

The changes and new features in these mid-generation remakes crown Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon as the definitive modern Pokemon experience.

Autumn Fish Nov 21, 2017

There’s a couple of fun new features implemented in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, and it’s the definitive edition for newcomers, but overall there’s not enough to make it worth playing through again for veterans.

Jacob Whritenour Nov 24, 2017



I was fine with the lack of of mid-gen Pokemon expansions over the past few years, but I’m glad Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon exist as Pokemon’s swan song on the Nintendo 3DS.

Casey DeFreitas Nov 14, 2017



The definitive edition of Pokémon Sun and Moon, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon encapsulate the elements of what made the first set of games great—and also carry forward some of the games’ flaws. Players may be retreading the same island paths as before, but a new selection of Pokémon, shiny new tokens to hunt, additional mini-games, and a brand new story add fun surprises for fans of the originals to find.

Emma Schaefer Nov 14, 2017



t's really hard not to love Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. While I can't rightly say they're everything that a die-hard Pokemon fan wants, they're very clearly games that rank among the most-polished and most-appealing titles available on the Nintendo 3DS hardware.

Ultra Sun and Moon act like a bookend. They feel like a sort of goodbye, rolling all of the best bits of previous games into one. This is very much a 'Best of' game and it feels fitting that this is likely to be the final Pokemon game for the 3DS.

Dan Lipscombe Dec 01, 2017



Combat and customisation that’s incredibly deep, but also surprisingly accessible. Huge game world filled with secrets and near endless longevity. Expansive multiplayer options. The lack of artificial intelligence can ruin the illusion in some battles. Story is still largely the same as before, and not terribly interesting.

Scattered across the various towns and cities of Alola are totem stickers, which can be collected in exchange for your own totem-sized pokémon. These stickers can be found just about anywhere; from the fronts of stranger's fridges to the middle of fountains, and push you to explore every inch of the tropical region.

Kieran Harris Nov 14, 2017



Sin embargo, todas estas novedades quizá no sean suficientes para quienes ya jugaron a Sol y Luna en su momento, ya que esto no deja de ser una versión mejorada y ampliada del original pensada tanto para los fans más dedicados como para quienes quieran descubrir el título por primera vez, lo que no quita que nos lo hayamos vuelto a pasar realmente bien jugando estas versiones Ultra y descubriendo todas sus novedades, lo que dice mucho del gran trabajo que ha realizado Game Freak con esta entrega.

Carlos Leiva Nov 14, 2017

Pokémon Ultrasol y Ultraluna son las versiones refinadas, mejor equilibradas y todavía más completas de Sol y Luna. A pesar de la gran cantidad de novedades, no consigue deshacerse de cierta sensación de déjà vu, pero eso no quita que estemos ante una oferta de contenidos más grande que un Wailord y una despedida fantástica para la saga en 3DS.

Álvaro Alonso Nov 14, 2017

3D Juegos


No nuevos videojuegos, sino las versiones definitivas de Pokémon Sol y Luna. Esta es la mejor definición que podemos darte. Si llegas nuevo, está completamente recomendado. Si ya jugaste, debes sopesar muy bien las novedades.

Jesús Bella Nov 14, 2017



Les recuerdo que su productor, Shigeru Ohmori, declaró en su momento que estas versiones se hicieron por un staff de jóvenes en Game Freak mientras que los pesos pesados estaban trabajando en lo que será la entrega para el Nintendo Switch, pero ésa es otra historia.

Ultra Sun es ideal para que regresen a la franquicia aquellos que no han jugado un Pokémon en años. Es una aventura con varios de los elementos que hicieron que millones se enamoraran de los originales, pero sin muchas de las decisiones de diseño que podían volverlos tediosos.

Pedro Cesari Dec 04, 2017



Pokémon Ultrasol y Ultraluna son las versiones definitivas de Sol y Luna. No son títulos completamente nuevos, sino que comparten la misma historia, aunque se han incorporado líneas argumentales nuevas y pequeños cambios que modifican levemente el conjunto.

Borja Ruete Nov 14, 2017



Un véritable mode photo façon Pokémon Snap (et non les photos du Motisma-Dex), avec divers objectifs, aurait été plus appréciable mais il faudra se contenter d’un stand photo tout ce qu’il y a de plus classique.

Benjamin Betaux Nov 22, 2017



Le duo Pokémon Ultra-Soleil et Ultra-Lune constitue indubitablement l'épisode le plus complet de la série, mais il se montre également très semblable à son prédécesseur, du moins a priori. Car en dépit de son cheminement global quasiment identique, et donc assez linéaire, ce remake comporte une kyrielle de petites modifications parfois malicieusement destinées aux anciens visiteurs d'Alola, ainsi que de nouvelles activités rafraîchissantes, voire captivantes.

Yann Bernard Dec 13, 2017



Si vous avez raté les épisodes Soleil et Lune, ces nouvelles éditions d'une des sagas phares de Nintendo disposent de suffisamment d'atouts pour vous convaincre de sauter le pas. Les possesseurs des éditions précédentes y trouveront aussi quelques nouveautés bienvenues, mais à l'intérêt plus limité pour les joueurs en attente de renouvellement profond.

Kaaraj Nov 16, 2017

Attention, si vous vous attendez à la suite de Soleil et Lune, vous risquez d’être fortement déçu. Il s’agit ici ni plus ni moins d’une version complémentaire déclinée en deux.

ALS Nov 17, 2017



Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon são provavelmente os últimos jogos da série Pokémon que a Nintendo 3DS recebe e é com satisfação que se conclui que a Gamefreak cumpriu. De facto, estes são os jogos que reúnem o melhor de tudo o que o estúdio desenvolveu desde a estreia de Pokémon X & Y na consola.

Ruben Abreu Nov 14, 2017



Pokémon Ultrasole e Ultraluna è chiaramente una versione riveduta e corretta di Sole e Luna che modifica le mosse e le statistiche di alcuni mostri, ne aggiunge una manciata e introduce una serie di nuove attività e missioni secondarie che, insieme a un epilogo completamente inedito, potrebbero rappresentare un bonus contenutistico tale da giustificare l'acquisto anche se si è già giocato Sole o Luna.

Christian Colli Nov 14, 2017



Pokémon Ultrasole e Ultraluna è una versione arricchita dei suoi predecessori, ma forse troppo poco. Naturalmente, in quanto tali, si tratta di due tra i migliori giochi Pokémon di sempre, ma trattandosi di una seconda release, mi sarei aspettata decisamente qualcosa in più. In primis a livello di trama: per quanto mi riguarda, non è possibile che la storia dedicata al misterioso Necrozma ricalchi, per quasi tutta la sua durata, quella già vista in Sole e Luna.

Alessandra Minuz Nov 14, 2017



Ultra Sun en Ultra Moon bieden je meer moeilijke gevechten, meer verhaal, meer gameplay en meer Pokémon. Als je nog twijfelt of de game het waard is naast de originele Sun en Moon, dan kunnen we je gerust stellen, de game is al je tijd en geld waard.
