Pok'mon returns for a 3DS victory lap in this generous, definitive retelling of the Alolan story.

If you skipped Sun and Moon last year, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are must-buys. Sci-fi storytelling, plenty of new content and adorable critters all included, but feels too soon a release to make the most of the innovation.

The best Pokémon game ever just got slightly better, with an even more expansive endgame and some welcome, if trivial, new tweaks and additions.

You won't find much incentive to return to Alola if you enjoyed your original trip, but if you skipped Sun and Moon's 2016 release and want to play a new Pokémon game, this is your best bet

Though they aren't very different from their predecessors, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon make enough changes to stand apart as the definitive version of the seventh generation games.

If you haven't played Sun and Moon, or any entry in the series in a while, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon is a great place to pick up the series again.

I already got my fill of Pokemon Sun & Moon, as you can clearly see from my completed 'dex, but that didn't stop me from reliving it all over again with Ultra. Just keep in mind that if you're hoping that the entire "leveling process" is going to be different this time, and that you'll be entering a completely brave, new world -- you're going to be disappointed.
