Hello there! Welcome back to the world of Pokemon! Stepping into the sunny shores of the Alola region, our latest Pokemon legend is about to unfold! Let’s go!
Its been a little over two years since we got a new Pokemon game (three if you’re talking about a new region) and the level of anticipation I was feeling was as strong as it’s ever been. The first Pokemon game I ever received was Pokemon Red back in 1998 for Christmas, and my parents refused to let me open it until Christmas Day. I remember sitting there just staring at the Charizard on the box, itching to rip it open and begin my adventure. This was the exact feeling I had when I was holding the Pokemon Sun box in my hands.
MINOR SPOILERS ARE PRESENT THROUGHOUT
Our latest adventure takes place in the Alola region, where the sun shines bright and the water is clear enough to see the school of Wishiwashi swimming underneath your feet. Taking inspiration from the American state of Hawaii, Director Shigeru Ohmori has shared that Alola is supposed to incorporate a meaning of a land that “overflows with life-force that supports many different forms of life.”
