If there’s anybody left who isn’t sure what catching ’em all is about, there’s a Pokémon Sun and Moon demo inbound.
Pokémon GO has done wonders for the popularity of the popular capsule monster franchise, though its influence is waning and it’s time for a new Pokémon game to step to the fore.
Thankfully, Pokémon Sun and Moon is almost upon us, releasing for the Nintendo 3DS on November 23, 2016.
If you’re in need of any convincing – and to be fair a Pokémon game is about as safe a bet as you can get, both that it will be a comfy old pair of slippers for series fans and a positive step forward for the franchise – then there’s also a Pokémon Sun and Moon demo on the way in a couple of weeks.
The Pokémon Sun and Moon demo will be available to download from the Nintendo eShop on October 18, 2016, for free (of course). It will allow players to get hands on with the new Alola region for the first time, and all players will receive a special Greninja – an Ash-Greninja, the Pokémon that appears alongside forever young Ash in the animated TV series Pokémon the Series: XYZ.
Players will be able to transfer their special Pokémon out of the Pokémon Sun and Moon demo, to join them in the main game when it launches on November 23, 2016.
