Recommended Posts

Is there anything you're supposed to do about the girl with the gym bag that said she wanted to see the professor, before running off?

If you mean Lillie, nope. That's just her being introduced in the demo.

Oh My god I'm not the only person that does it: go pull up the demo and quickly rotate the circle pad so your character spins in place for a few seconds, and watch what happens

The girl that talks about the guy who rescued her when she sprained her ankle?

 

Spoiler

The guy in question turns out to be a Machamp.  The two of them go to hang out at the beach together.  If you talk to her later, she says she was happy she got to show him off to you, but you don't get any items or anything out of it.

Next timed event after that is the guy in city hall with his pikachu, I believe, which was 12 days from the start (so seven after the girl you missed).

Yeah, all the events have been datamined, picked apart and checked by multiple sources, so we know (SPOLERS) everything that happens (SPOILERS) in the demo.

Mainly, you get some items that you can send to your Sun and Moon games when they come out. That's it. No big reveals, no surprises, no events. Just some items.

Well, at least this demo isn't pulling that limited number of plays bullshit that all the other demos do...

Oh, turns out that everyone can now pre-purchase and pre-load Sun and Moon now.

Obviously, you can't pre-load it and then set your 3DS clock to November 18th. And yes, people have tried it already, and it doesn't work.

Well they could've screwed up like they did with Color Splash's preload and have you have the full game early but I think they've learned from their mistake there lol

Weird little trivia for those of you in the US:

If you go to a GameStop for a Genesect card, and they tell you they don't have any yet, ask them to print up a receipt with the code " 131094 ". This is the internal GameStop system's method for generating a code when there are no cards.

Sadly, this does not work in Canada at EBGames... Guess it's back to cards for me.

OK, working out a little thing with Liontamer for you poor bastards here that don't have access to... let's say... certain on-goings.

Hope to have it running any day now!

Friendly reminder: tomorrow is the day to go to the girl in the ferry building in the Sun/Moon demo and get your reward.

Yeah It seems the game glitches out a little bit if you mess with the clock,  and I'm assuming you fixed yours for daylight savings time.  it should correct itself and keep counting up from there  though

Yeah, the demo is... finicky when it comes to the clock. It was made that way so you couldn't just change the date to get to certain events immediately. After all, the demo is scheduled with the international (well, North America and Japan, really) release date.

But then all that info was extracted from the ROM and we knew about everything the demo had to offer in less than a day.

Nice try, Game Freak. But the fans know no boundaries.

Ever wondered how we're supposed to get Magearna, the first gen 7 pokémon revealed, in Sun and Moon? Well, stop wondering. Remember that little QR Code function that was revealed months ago? It looks like it will be used to unlock Magearna and place it in your game.

Also, holy crap, only 3 and a half more days!

Also also, go check out the Genesect Code giveaway I'm doing!

Midnight release dates and locations for Sun and moon:

http://bulbanews.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Pokémon_Sun_and_Moon_Midnight_Launch_Events

Just find you country, find your state/province/whatever, and check the store's website or details.

Between the three EBGames within two miles of me, the Best Buy down the road, and the multiple Wal-Marts in each direction, I don't think I'm going to have a hard time finding a copy.

Also... anyone here pre-download the game? Which version are you getting? Any particular reason why you want the version?

I preordered Moon from Amazon, with release-day delivery. Sitting at work on Friday and then going to my weekly appointments is going to be SO HARD.

I literally went with Moon because I thought Lunaala looked cooler...though Solgaleo seems to have the better design animation-wise now that they've put out more art and promos. Lunaala looks so flat by comparison...eh. Oh well, Bayonetta Noivern is cool too, and having the game be night during the day actually works out for me as I tend to play video games after work now.

There is one good thing that came out of the leaks. Did you know that HMs are completely gone?

Fly, Surf and Waterfall are the only HMs that survived the change. Cut, Strength, all the other ones made over the years... gone.

Which means certain pokémon, namely Bidoof, are out of jobs and will see even less use on teams now.

Let's have a moment of silence for all our HM mules.

I hadn't heard until today, as I've been trying to avoid spoilers. Though, I guess that's not really a spoiler at all.

So, no more field moves at all?  It's all replaced by...  whatever the thing in the demo that let you ride a taros at will was called?

I'm entirely okay with that.  Having to give up a slot or two in your party (I'm using a bibarel and a hawlucha in Y, though I'd probably have the hawlucha anyway, because LUCHADORE PARROT) wasn't a whole lot of fun, though I'll admit that smashing through walls and stuff was amusing for some reason.  I guess we'll just have to summon pokemon to do that for us on command instead of having them be part of our party now, though.  No real loss there, as far as I'm concerned.

 

I also preordered my copy of Sun from Amazon, so it should be waiting for me when I get home from work tomorrow.  Sadly, I still haven't beaten Y yet (though I've made a lot of progress in the last week or so!), but I'm travelling for Thanksgiving next week so I'll probably finish up Y and then start right on Sun during that trip.

I suppose I should decide which starter I'm going with.  I haven't even actually looked at their evolved forms yet.  I'm leaning toward rowlet, though.  ....okay, I just looked at their evolutions.  Definitely going with rowlet.  By far the most awesome of the three, and with the greninja from the demo, I just need a fire-type starter to round out the main three.  Maybe they'll let you pick a second starter later, like in X/Y.
