  1. Ultra Sun review

    Hey fellow Radarians! Today I will be giving a detailed review of Pokemon Ultra Sun. The review will be split into sections that fit story plots, gameplay, etc.. Enjoy! Wait! Spoilers! Almost forgot. You've been warned! Opening The opening scenes in games are very important in my opinion. They give the player their first impression on the game. Ultra Sun's opening scene doesn't stray far from previous Pokemon openings, you meet the professor of the region (Prof. Kukui in this instance), they tell you about Pokemon and that region, you meet your rival, etcetera, etcetera. But I love the Pokemon opening scences! They give you information on yourself (to an extent) and those around you often. Perfect qualities for openings! In the opening you get in a bit of a fender bender. Your crossing Route 1 and all of a sudden, YUNGOOSE! You have not yet received a Pokemon starter and for that reason you don't know what to do. That moment is when you meet your starter choices! Rowlet, a grass and flying type, Litten, a fire type, and Popplio, the water type, all jump in to save the day! They destroy the wild Yungoose and then Kukui shows up. Long story short, you choose one of the three to accompany you on your journey (I'm Team Popplio). Hau, you in-game rival will choose the Pokemon weak against yours (In my case he chose Litten). After all this you learn more about Hau and Pokemon battling. You even learn that Hau is the grandson of The island Kahuna! That's about it for the opening... I give it a 5/5 Starting your Island Trial (Z-Crystals) After receiving your starter Pokemon, it's time to start your island challenge! For those of you who don't know what the island challenge is, it's basically a series of quests you take on before the Elite Four. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think it's exclusive to Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon. Before you start, however, you encounter, Lillie. She is assistant to the Professor and owner of Cosmog (More about it later). Lillie is not much of a trainer and she happens to get Cosmog into quite some trouble... It is being attacked by bird type Pokemon on quite an unstable bridge, when you go in to help the bridge BREAKS. Thankfully, Tapu Koko is there to save the day! The guardian saves you and Cosmog both! It also happens to leave you a present, a Z-Power Ring rock! You give this special rock to the Island Kahuna, Hala, after you beat him and he turns it into a Z-Power Ring which can use Z-Crystals! They really pack a punch and can be used once a battle with no consequences except for the loss of 1PP. After you receive the Z-Power Ring, your island trail actually starts! Each trial you face, you gain a Z-Crystal. Each Z-Crystal has a unique animated cutscene that havs obviously been carefully perfected by the animators. While the Island Trials are mostly puzzles and not battles, they usually all end in battles. The puzzles are real brain pickers and really get you thinking. It's good to relax afterwards with the prize of a Z-Crystal! I forgot how many trials there are exactly, but I think there are around 8. I give the Island Challenges a 4/5 The Main Story The main story behind Ultra Sun is quite compelling. To sum it up: The guardian deities of Alola (The Tapu) became enraged by the actions of the people. They each chose an island to ensure order but were still at war. Solgaleo and Lunala both saw this and together, put an end to the fighting. After the fighting ended People out all trust in the Tapu. Solgaleo and Lunala also created a new Pokemon or Ultra Beast in this case called, Cosmog. Depending on which game you buy, Cosmoem, the evolution of Cosmog evolves into the legendaries! Solgaleo for Ultra Sun, and Lunala for Ultra Moon. Cosmog has a shrine in the game because past kings worshipped it. Anyway after that the rest of the story is about how Team Skull is evil and want to steal all Pokemon from trainers. Also (HUGE SPOILER ALERT) the Aether Foundation (A foundation made to help Pokemon) is working with Team Skull! The Aether Foundation is also researching UB's or Ultra Beasts. They are powerful creatures found in Ultra Space Wormholes! One has even gotten into Alola through a Wormhole opened up in the past by Solgaleo or Lunala! The story goes deeper from there! Lusamine (Aether Foundation President) is taken by a UB named Nihelgo! But closely the boss of team skull, Guzma, jumps through the ultra wormhole after her! This is where I talk about the Ultra Recon Squad, they are a group that was hired by Lusamine and betrayed by her. See Lusamine promised them that if they helped her open up an ultra wormhole, she would take them back to their own world. Ya this may be a LOT to take in.... Here's some context. The Ultra Recon Squad lived in a place in Ultra Space where they would travel across wormholes through either Lunala or Solgaleo (they somehow had access to riding both of them freely). One day an Ultra Beast by the name of Necrozma stole the light of their world. They were sent by their kin to find someone who would defeat Necrozma and restore their world. Eventually they came across Alola and met Lusamine and now to go back where we left off. After they found out Lusamine betrayed them, they ask you to help them. When you accept they tell you to go to the Alter of the Sunne. In order to do this however, you need to finish up your Island Challenges. Then you save Lusamine and whatnot. You're thanked and ya. Now all that's left is the Pokemon League! 5/5 Elite Four! The Elite Four aka The Pokemon League was constructed in Alola by Kukui while you were saving Lusamine and Guzma. You have encountered all of the Elite Four in game before however after you beat them all you are the Champion! All you do is defend your title! You don't even need a fifth battle to become Champion! The moment you sit on the throne for the first time, Hau shows up! He is your first title defense (Meaning you're already champion!). If you lose you've failed to defend your title, but if you win everyone recognizes you as champion! And with that you reach the Credits. I give the Elite Four a 5/5 Thanks for reading!
  2. First Starter Pokemon

    Hello fellow Radarians! It's been a while since my last thead but that changes today! I came up with this concept that I'm calling: Thread week (work in progress). Basically I will post at least one thread each day for 5 or 7 days. Feel free to join on the concept is you want! Now for the actual thread: What was your first Pokemon starter? If you haven't played any Pokemon game whatsoever, I highly recommend you do. Pokemon games are really fun no matter your age! You'll find yourself in love with these adorable vicious little creatures in no time! My first starter Pokemon was Snivy from Pokemon White! Since I saw Snivy for the first time I knew we would go far! He looked so clever and cute at the same time that I had to choose him! I'm interested to find out what your first starter was and why you chose it.
  3. Return to the Kanto region and experience a classic Pokémon journey in a whole new way with Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! on Nintendo Switch! Coming November 16, 2018: http://bit.ly/2ISUMVX
  4. Pokémon on Switch?

    Hey everyone, Diego here and today I have a question for all you wonderful Radarians: "What do you think the likelihood is for a Pokémon game of any sort to be released and/or ported onto the Switch?" This has been a question for a while but I wanted to know what you all think about this topic and the Pokémon series in general. Looking forward to posting more soon, Diego7000 OUT!
  5. Detective Pikachu Review

    Detective Pikachu has had a lot of buzz surrounding it (I’m not referring to you, Buzz!). It had a single-episode Japanese release quite a while back, with more to come. Reviewers loved it. The titular character was witty, charming and lovable. The case was simple but enjoyable. And so it goes. The whole game is not much more than this. Simple puzzles, lovable characters, good set pieces. It is aimed at a younger crowd. But I did enjoy my time with it. The story is great (and this part skews slightly older), and follow Tim Goodman’s search for his missing father. It does fall into common trappings (Pikachu has amnesia, Tim is an amateur, etc.), and though the cases are connected, they can feel somewhat disconnected, in a sense. The villains are rarely readily apparent (although sometimes they totally are) and “guesswork” can feel tiring because you figured something out several steps ahead of what the game expects of you. So it was more that I was disconnected from the game in the sense that an average 8-year old watching Dora might feel. Not part of the age group targeted, and smart enough to realize most things beforehand, but not necessarily readily. Nevertheless, the writing is flawless. The wit is mild but on point, the characters are well established, and the game is consistently fun even when you are ahead of the game. Detective Pikachu is a character I’m so excited to see more of. The voice acting is among the best I’ve seen in any dub. The actors and actresses were well chosen, the Pokemon sounded like I would have imagined, and this added so much life into the game. The Pokemon do have the quirk of generally saying only syllables of their names, just like the show. This is fine, I think, but can be off-putting to newcomers to Pokemon, to which this game is (somewhat) targeted. The main criticism I have of the game is actually relegated to something optional. If you want to hear all the optional conversations, you cannot hear them all in one playthrough. In fact, I often stopped to chat with Detective Pikachu, but I was far from hearing them all. Too bad, because these conversations were often full of wit and an interesting diversion from the stress of the main game. You can access these with an amiibo. Considering that most people will only play this game through once (and the game only lasts about 13 hours), that’s definitely taking advantage of this. That said, as I said before, I do still hope to see more of Detective Pikachu. As for whether or not this game is worth pulling the plug on, I’d suggest most Pokemon fans stay away. Major Pokemon fans will want this game. But if you’re not willing to shell out $40 for the game, you can catch playthroughs online (and, I might add, the game might be more fun for it if you take time to pause and relax). I also think this game will drop in price. I don’t know how much, but consider waiting if you don’t want to shell out full price. Also note that this game has QTEs (quick-time events). These are short and simple and bland. No Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm level QTEs here. But they make up for it in personality. There can be funny results for failing. In one, Pikachu is shot out of a cannon. Intentionally miss the button press and you’ll be treated to humorous dialogue. Miss others and you might have to restart, or be met with some more serious consequences (you might fail to catch the villain, for example). In one segment (not related to QTEs), you miss out on recovering stolen item(s) if you fail. If you succeed, you might be treated to a dialogue option. I didn’t pay enough attention and missed at first, but succeeded my next playthrough. It was simple enough that I would have easily succeeded the first time if I had paid more attention. I breezed through this game, and yes, I would have had more fun if I hadn’t. But I still feel I got a gauge of what to rate it. I am not taking much into account the price of the game. This review is largely according to the game’s standard in comparison to other adventure games. Rating: 7.5/10.
  6. Still playing the 3ds line

    I know there’s a ton of hype still for the switch but I’m still not done with the 3ds. There’s still quite a few games I need to play like Pokémon Ultra Sun and Moon,xenoblade, bravely default, bravely second, some fire emblem games, and a few others. In the mean time while I’m playing those I’m saving up for the switch. Can’t wait for Pokémon to come out on it than my life will be complete. I wonder if it’ll come out 2018 or 2019?
  7. How is Ultra Sun/moon going to differ from the previous Pokemon title or will it be more like a white/black 2 instead of a Pokemon yellow to a Pokemon red/blue? Also if anyone has any thoughts or stories on Pokemon I would like to hear them.

  10. Mines Hoenn what's yours?
  11. I was wondering what other people's opinions would be on the future of Pokemon games? Are they going to be able to be played on the Switch? Do you think they will make more games like Zelda and incorporate those types of ideas to Pokemon? Also, does anyone else want another game like Pokemon Coliseum to come out for the Switch or is it just me?
  12. Hi, I am a new member of this community and was wondering what was your favourite Pokemon? and Why?

(and if you want second favourite or from each region)
  13. Thoughts On Pokemon?

    Personally, I love pokemon! However, I think they're getting into that "people will buy anything as long as it's branded" phase. The new sun and moon games are absolutely horrible! What are your thoughts?
