Got both preordered cause I wasn't sure and, for once, I'm having a really hard time deciding which to keep.

I kind of prefer some forms of Pokemon Sun pokemon, but Moon has the more unique looking Legendary and it's Ultra Beast (whatever those are) doesn't look like a muscled up cockroach. No idea which way to go yet but I'm curious which version ya'll are going for?

Lol.. not much Pokemon fans on the forum anymore, I guess.

I've never been this undecided before and I have no need, or money - since Jan, Feb, and Mar are so packed - to buy both.

Opted to get Pokemon Sun. I prefered the pokemon and I noticed I have a pattern. I always get the "first" version.

This gen seems like a nightmare for those, like myself, that like to get living dex. So many 'once a game' Pokemon this go around. Oi...


Now just waiting for amazon to stop being a bitch and ship it.

Surprisingly I got my copy but I was too busy to boot it up; and the 3DS died and around me was no free socket.. oi. Though it still annoys me I had to contact support to get the thing to move. What if they didn't upgrade my shipping speed? Would I still be waiting for it? Meh, after my current "must haves" I'm done with amazon preorders.


Plan to choose Litten(?) and then breed it when I can and hopefully get a Rowlet. Because that thing is fucking adorable.

Infact I already have my main party picked;
-Litten
-Rowlet
-Vulpix
-Salandit
-Rockruff
-Jangmo-o

Probably my favourites of this gen, based on looks anyway.

Salandit evolves as a female, and I like the design. Vulpix and Midday-Lycanroc are why I picked Sun so I had to add them.

Almost should of picked Rowlet and just got you to breed me a litten. lol

Damn you are lucky. My best is probably late game, hard-ish to get, stuff and a Litten.

Not had time to play so my party is pretty random:
-Torracat
-Pikipek
-Munchlax
-Pichu
-Slowpoke
-A-Rattata

EDIT:
Just GTS'd a Jangmo-o - that I got VIA Wonder Trade - for a Adamant, Female Rowlet. Feels good considering that's one of the natures I wanted, don't have to breed like a crazy person now.

Got a Rowlet in the GTS for a Popplio so hopefully that goes soon.

Party is now:
-Torracat
-Trumbeak
-Munchlax (Pretty much my Pokemon catcher, with Hold Back)
-Pichu
-Rockruff
-Rowlet

With a Salandit and Jangmo-o I got from GTS/WonderTrade that I need to breed for gender/non-ENG region. Yeah I'm picky. lol

haha sounds good, I sometimes want pokemon to be a specific gender as well, i think it just suits them being a male or female version!

ive changed my party a few times and im not 100% happy with what i have at the moment but its currently:

Decidueye
Graveler (Alola version)
Crabrawler
Incineroar
Mudsdale
Lycanroc (Midday)

Salandit needs to be female to evolve else I wouldn't care. Got a Vulpix via Wonder Trade, so now I'm breeding that for a Snow Warning, Female (because a male one is just wrong :p) so I can make use of Aurora Veil.

Also you know what's stupid? They released the Magearna QR Code (check pokemon.com, I think) but you have to beat the game to claim it. Thankfully I got a few months before it expires but that's seriously stupid.
