Today Pokémon Sun and Moon have launched in America.  You can buy one/both version(s) at retail and in the 3DS eShop.  Sun and Moon are the start of the seventh generation of the Pokémon main series.  In this installment, you travel the region of Alola (based on the US state of Hawaii).  Alola has four islands in all and when you get started as a Pokémon Trainer, you have to travel across all of Alola's islands to catch Pokémon and face off against powerful trainers and Pokémon alike.

 

Sun and Moon also mark the series first major change in the formula.  Alola has no Pokémon League, but have captains of various island challenges across the four major islands.  And that is just only the beginning!  New to the 7th generation battle systems are Z-Moves, that allow certain Pokémon to use a super move.  Like Mega Stones/Keystones and Mega Evolution in the sixth gen, Z-Moves require the Z-Ring and your chosen Pokémon to hold the correct Z-item.  Z-moves can only be used once per battle like there can be only one Mega Evolved Pokémon per battle.

 

If you have data from the demo version of Pokémon Sun and Moon, you can import in several items and Ash's Greninja to the full game.  By defeating Pokémon in trainer battles, you can trigger Greninja's Battle Bond which lets it transform into Ash-Greninja during battle.  A last thing to note:  There will be an update to Pokémon Bank (and maybe Sun and Moon might need an update too) to enable Generation 1 transfer of Pokémon from Red/Blue/Yellow (3DS Virtual Console) to Sun and Moon.

 

When the transfer is done, please note you cannot return any transferred Generation 1 Pokémon back to Red/Blue/Yellow on 3DS VC.  Now who will you pick as your Generation 7 starter?

There's Rowlet (Grass/Flying), Litten (Fire), and Popplio (Water).

Looks like GameFREAK hasn't learned from X/Y.  There's a save glitch in Sun & Moon that's kinda different from the ol' Lumiose City save glitch from X/Y.  The problem this time is saving in a Pokemon Center and Battle Tree causes your game to save incorrectly so that when you boot up the game, the game will soft-lock upon the Center or Tree loading.  This can require you to start your game over from scratch.

 

Workarounds:

SAVE ANYWHERE BUT THE AFFECTED LOCATIONS UNTIL GAMEFREAK PATCHES THE GAME.

 

If caught in a soft-lock, but don't want to lose your save:

1) You can try waiting to see if when GameFREAK issues an emergency patch to see if this can fix the soft-lock and let you resume in a Pkmn Center or Battle Tree.

 

2) Use 3DS homebrew to hack the save onto a computer and fix the save with a hex editor.

 

In lighter news, looks like GameFREAK is learning from Bethesda:

Sorry for another post so quickly, but some of the YouTube commentators on that glitch video above says the OP in the video may have soft-locked his game trying to hack it and that the "glitch" is a false alarm for normal players.  There is no proof for either case, so I guess take this matter with salt until proven otherwise.

I'm pretty sure i've already saved and quit while in pokemon centers before and nothing happened, so i'm just gonna blame this on the dirty hacker.

On a different note, i really, really hate how wild pokemon can call for help, now. It's especially annoying when i'm trying to catch something.

Well looks like Op of the video above deleted his video after being busted as a 3DS hacker that improperly hacked his game into a soft-lock.

 

But for the other "Bethesda" glitches, some are speculating those are happening to 3DS hackers only, but like the other scenario, take it with a grain of salt until proven otherwise.

This is a heads-up for any Battle Spot players.  The moves Memento and Parting Shot have been temporarily banned from the Battle Spot due to causing game crashes when a player chooses a Z-version of those moves.  GameFREAK is working on a patch to fix this, but until then, all Pokemon that currently have these moves learned cannot play in the Battle Spot mode.  You should teach affected Pokemon other moves or just use other Pokemon that don't know these moves until the game crashes are fixed in a future patch.
