    Yes bees get associated with flower and seasonal fairies. Don't know where it originates from but i encountered books in countries i visited. There are lots of tales, legends, myths etc out there so plenty to work with for Pokémon. I will give the Sun Moon anime a chance, we can get used to Satoshi/Ash's new look. Those Sauropods do go into that direction.

    So, it's good then eh? I generally don't play demos (or watch much in the way of trailers....Or look up much information at all, actually), for games I know I'm getting.

    Pretty sure my SD card wouldn't be able to fit the demo anyway. I think it's just a 2GB card. Not sure how much of the space is already in use. But isn't the demo like 800MB?

    Looks legit what you have there lunadash. But is that all? I think gen 7 might be bigger but who can say.

    Why is it that many think the demo is over when that trailer video plays? I knew there was more.

    Woho! I'm so excited about pokemon sun/moon. I gonna get moon after release.
    The demo is fun and a good way to make money for the real game.
    As starter i take Popplio.

    Already received those today. Don't know if they will be useful in Sun & Moon but free items are free items :)

    So saves, or at least money from the demo carries over to the full game?

    Is it like the first area of the main game? As you can tell, I haven't really looked into it much >_>

    You can transfer items and Ash-Greninja to the full games and the demo mostly has areas that may not be in the full games. They said the demo had exclusive stuff so the areas may fall under that too (some will be in the full games though).

    Hmmm I don't really like how the demo tells you what's effective/not effective/super effective it's not a huge difference since I usually memorize that but idk it just feels odd. I do like clicking on your poke tells you how much a stat has gone up/down

    That's a feature that is in Sun & Moon, it's not demo exclusive and is a good addition since my cousin likes Pokémon and she sometimes struggles in battles. It will help young fans for sure.

    Oh I'll probably get used to it but I'd like the option to turn it off/on. And you are right its probably really good for young fans my little sister has so much trouble remembering the type advantages she usually asks me before doing any move

    I don't know if it can be turned off but it is also minor and honestly handy when i want to catch Pokémon and weaken them carefully. There are so many Pokémon and yes i memorize their advantages and disadvantages but it is helpful for all fans (especially young fans though). Sun & Moon have lots of good features so far and i hope there will be more along with more content.

    Well I can't disagree there Sun and Moon have a lot of new features and I can't wait to see more. I am more hyped for this game than about any other one, the feature itself isn't even bad I'm just being nitpicky

    I think they'll be catchable or something like it if they are in the dex

    Another good thing is the possibilities to see an graphycal IV level of each pokemon (go to Status, select the pokemon and hit Y ). If you poke has a 31 IV stats, this will shiny.

    Someone GameFreak related say the ultrabeasts can be caught... and the dataminers find some Dimensional Balls........

    I don't know...if they seem to be a higher existence than Legendaries, I'm not sure if they would want to be commanded or tamed. There's probably a catch to battling them, like they have a hidden HP bar, or each time you use them, the bond with your other Pokémon decreases a bit due to envy/jealousy.

    Screw everything else, Alola Ninetales. Everything else is just gravy, unless there's an Alola Arcanine.

    *Is a fan of Ninetales*

    *Googles Alolan variant*

    *Agrees, excepting the fact he seriously doubts Alolan Arcanine, if it exists, will top this*

    I'm curious as to its evolutions and how well it would perform as a ground type. I usually have a ground/grock type. For the longest time it was Geodude/Graveler. With Alpha Sapphire I went with Garchomp (With Rough Skin and Rocky Helmet). I doubt it will be a very strong pokemon in the end though, considering how dirt (haha puntimes) common it seems to be.

    Lycanroc (Midnight Form) is pure rock type and Lycanroc (Midday Form) is also pure rock type. So Rockruff doesn't gain a second typing after evolution. I think it will be a strong Pokémon still though.

    I never cared much for the competitive scene as long as it's strong enough in the PVE scene, I'll be fine.

    Just a thought, but are the other previous gen legendaries involved in the game as well?
