Pokemon Sun and Moon: Battle System Changes

Pokemon Sun and Moon have wowed gamers everywhere. The first trailer released exploded into the scene with new starter Pokemon and a new region to explore. One minor thing fans might not have noticed was the short battle sequences seen in the trailer, which shows that a number of changes have been made.

One of these changes is the fact that players get to see the opposing trainer during battle. In previous games, players only saw the opposing trainer in the beginning and end of the match. In Pokemon Sun and Moon, it seems like players will be able to see the real-time reactions of the enemy trainers as they defeat their Pokemon in battle. Comic Book also noticed how the backgrounds of the battles have received more detail. Instead of a generic backdrop of the area, players can actually see other people watching them fight or the actual environment that they are in, which is fairly impressive.

As far as actual battle mechanics go, it seems like Pokemon Sun and Moon are not deviating from the turn-based battle system that the series is known for. This isn’t a problem, especially with the lovely 3D models of the Pokemon, but it would be interesting to see how Nintendo and Game Freak would change the fighting in the future.

Fans have also hoped to see some major changes for the gym battles in Sun and Moon. While it won’t be as drastic as the gym battles in Pokemon GO, players would like to see some minor changes, like the gym leader limiting the amount of Pokemon the player can bring during a match. It would force players to be more strategic, which would add some variety in a Pokemon game.

Pokemon Sun and Moon are slated for a Nov. 18 release for the 3DS, 2DS and New 3DS.
