Time to get out there and catch them all again!  Pokémon Sun and Moon have been released to North America, Japan, and Australia.  Europe will have to wait until November 23rd.

I got a call from my local Gamestop.  They would be releasing the game at midnight.  So of course, I had to pick them up.  I picked up 2 copies of each game tonight, and they gave me two posters.  I’ll have to come back to pick up 2 more games for my youngest son.

There was probably 50-75 people there easy.  The game stop had some weird grouping system going on. Depending on when you paid for the games during the day, you were assigned a group.  I stopped off on the way home from bowling, just before 10pm. I was put in group 4.  After that, I came home.  I didn’t want to wait around there for a couple of hours. Plus, I brought my oldest son with me.

We went into the Gamestop store about 11:45pm.   I took the first picture of a few people just hanging around.  Then they had us all line up, then we waited for midnight to roll around.  I wanted to get 2 more copies, but I would have had to wait for everyone in the store to get their games first, then I could buy more. I didn’t want to wait that long, and just headed home.

I just stuck Moon into my 3DS.  I’ll just get it started, then play more during they day. I need to get some sleep! 🙂

I am looking forward to the new Pokemon in the Aloha region, and to see the region variances.  I hope the Z moves will work out to be a lot of fun. I don’t care much for the weird dance moves the trainers are doing.  I imagine it will be similar to Mega Evolution movement in the previous games.

I only played the demo that was released so far, so I’ll have to see how the gameplay is on the release games.  I’ll bring up another post as a followup to this one soon.
