The demo for the highly anticipated 3DS titles Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon are out now, and free to download from the 3DS eShop! All you have to do is open the eShop and select the demo, which has its own icon.
In the demo, you play as a boy named Sun who has just arrived in the Alola Region, straight from Kanto. The player then receives a Greninja from an unknown sender. The game allows a bit of exploration and a taste of the new battle configuration. I won’t spoil it all, but I will say that the presentation is top-notch.
Eventually, you are able to obtain the fan favorite transformation of Greninja – Ash Greninja, which makes its debut in the games after appearing in the Pokemon Anime, hence the name. The moves it knows are Water Shuriken, Aerial Ace, Double Team,and Night Slash.
It possesses the ability Battle Bond, which will allow it to transform into Ash-Greninja when it defeats one Pokemon in a battle with two or more Pokemon. This Pokemon can be transferred to the full game after release.
Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon release for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on November 18, 2016, and they’re still up for pre-order. If you’re curious as to whether this version of Pokemon is worth getting, go ahead and try out the demo. It’ll help scratch that Pokemon itch you may have in anticipation for the full game. In fact, tell us in the comments what version you’re getting and the feature you are most looking forward to!
