I am a 24 year old man with a job and wife and I am also filled with anguish. All of Friday it reported "Will be delivered by 8 PM today." Nope, and it's stuck about 2.5 hours from me and apparently won't be delivered until Monday. I've had it preordered since July. Amazon apparently just had huge unprecedented numbers preorder.

Yeah this was by far the most preordered game in Nintendo history 

 

I just went to my local target and bought it the day it came out since there was no incentive to preorder

Anyone know where I can find a list of mechanic changes from gen 6, and an intro to the new Z moves and?

Just go to serebii, they should have compilation pages for all that in their sun/moon page

This game is amazing btw, I haven't finished the main storyline yet and from what I hear some of the competitive play mechanics (i.e. breeding) are lacking compared to their convenience in ORAS but the actual content of the game is so good

Same. Like I hear some people are complaining a little about stuff like there being too many cutscenes, but honestly I'm all for it. The more story and personality to delve through, the better imo

Yeah, after 24(25 if you're gonna be a pedantic asshole and count Japanese Green version) games following essentially identical formulas I was more than happy to sit through a little more exposition to get to do something different in a Pokemon game

Even better is that some of the trials are decently challenging, I won't spoil anything for people who haven't gotten the game yet but there are arguably a couple challenges that are Whitney's-Miltank-tier

This is the first game I've actually played (remakes aside) since Gen III and I am really enjoying the new structure. 

 

I also like that it's challenging without being too punishing. My team is super soft to certain types, but I've never had a battle that felt straight-up unwinnable, except maybe that one time an Alolan Raichu nearly swept me.

this game does a really good job of actually making gym leaders (or rather trial captains) memorable as characters, provides a fair bit of challenge with the totem pokemon, and is absolutely gorgeous 

 

easily the best pokemon ingame i've played

Buying this game tomorrow hopefully. A few questions if you will though:

 

1) How much content is there in the game in comparison to previous titles? Will I be able to enjoy it pre-post E4 etc? 

 

2) Pokemon is obviously not very difficult as a game. How's S/M for difficulty?

That Dewpider is hot

I found a shiny Gastrodon yesterday and it actually barely looks different from the standard version, if I didn't have the volume on to hear the shiny noise I would've ko'd it without thinking twice

I'm a 24 year old dude about to graduate with his undergraduate and have worked plenty over the course of my degree, but yeah, anguish all around, man.

what are people's teams looking like for this game?

It's no shiny, though that was my goal, I was also ally-chaining last night and caught this big ugly bastard.

1. It's full of content story-wise, and I loved nearly all the cutscenes, as opposed to previous games where you basically just go through the motions. In fact, it's the best one yet imo (Outside of maybe BW2? The only one I didn't play, so can't say for sure), and I actually came out caring about several characters and their character development. 

 

2. It's the most challenging one I've ever played. I gave myself a few minor handicaps though (Eventually turned off Exp. Share, Set instead of Switch, eventually stopped using Z-Moves) and eventually I gradually came across wild Pokemon and trainers, including random ones, that were a higher level than mine. If you're unprepared, getting wiped out actually is a possibility for once. The Totem Pokemon were a particular highlight, as they were actually pretty damn clever and challenging (usually) through their movesets, free stat boosts, and the ally Pokemon they call to help them out.

 

At any rate, it's my favorite Pokemon game yet.

That's good to know :) What stuff is there to do in-game after completing the main story?

I'm buying a 3ds next weekend and I'm just wondering what you guys recommend, sun or moon?

To expand, Sun has the better wild Pokémon exclusives and if you're into ubers solgaleo>lunala 

 

the ultra beasts in moon are arguably better than the ones in sun (Pheromosa and Celesteela vs. Buzzwole and Kartana) but there are multiples of those per game so they'll be getting passed around anyway
