The Pokemon phenomenon shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon, and this time around, we bring you word on pre-orders of Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon are set for their big reveal on the Nintendo 3DS this coming November 18th all over the world. Of course, the rest of the world excludes Europe, since that region will have to wait for five more days -- November 23rd to be exact, before gamers there can get their mitts on Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. Either way, it will be more than a month before Christmas, so you know just what to get for your Pokemon-crazy nephews and nieces if they already own a Nintendo 3DS!
If you decide to place your pre-order with the folks over at Gamestop, then your efforts will be rewarded with a poster. It will be no ordinary poster, since this is a double-sided poster. The only caveat? You will need to place a pre-order for two titles, and not just one.
Another update on Pokemon Sun and Moon would be the Ultra Beasts. The Pokemon Ultra Beasts have been teased yet again, confirming the existence of UB-02 Absorption and UB-02 Beauty. These two beasts will remain exclusive to the Alola region, and Nintendo is not going to shut the door on the possibility of more beasts making a debut in the upcoming 3DS title. UB-02 Absorption will appear in Pokemon Sun, without revealing its strength level, but we do know that its entire body is covered with bulging, powerful muscles. As for UB-02 Beauty, this will be a Pokémon Moon monster, and chances are it will be super fast thanks to its narrow, graceful legs.
To make the most of the situation, Nintendo will also have a new Pokemon Sun and Moon-branded console. We bring you the Solgaleo Lunala Black Edition New Nintendo 3DS XL model that is set to hit the market this October 28 in North America, where it boasts of the two exclusive Pokemons on the outside. Expect the new Nintendo 3DS XL variants to cost $199.99 a pop sans the game.
For those who are looking for more than just the game itself, pre-orders for the Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon Collector’s Vault Edition were made available on Amazon.com, having sold out on Amazon Canada quickly. Thankfully, it is still available on Amazon US, and even better yet is the $52 discount on the bundle that could go some way in letting you have a nice meal outside in terms of the savings made.
Just what will the Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon Collector’s Vault Edition come with? For starters, it will feature a special edition hardcover guide complete with a soft-touch dust jacket that boasts of exclusive Pokémon artwork. Not only that, the Collectible Vault Edition box will feature a magnetic clasp so that all of your most precious Pokémon merchandise can be placed within -- if they fit, that is. Apart from that, the exclusive hardcover 240-page journal will show off a debossed pattern and gold foil, complete with a ribbon bookmark and an inside pocket.
The included roller ball pen that has been etched with Pokémon Sun/Moon logos in classic silver color is elegant to say the least, showing all and sundry as you put down your John Hancock that you are a huge Pokemon fan. Its high-quality lithograph set will boast of all-new artwork in a protective sleeve, in addition to a thank you card with gold-foil-stamp signatures from members of Game Freak.
