I'm getting both Sun and Moon (but probably in December or after winter holidays, depending on how it is with money, sigh...) aaaand water and fire starters! I'm not big on owls.

Dunno yet. The new starters are cool, but none of them really click with me enough to consider using 'em the whole game, so I'll probably bring something over from Y to make my actual starter.

Moon, and prrrrrobablyyy rowlet.
I wasn't sure which of the three at first but GHOST type final split (loves me my ghosties < 3) and a cute lil hoodie to hide in? I'm sold.

Also came across this earlier, a sorta slower (maybe?), more dramatic version of primarina's Z-move and about gutted myself laughing.

Anyway it'll be a good while yet til I can actually get my hands on it so I'll keep on casually/low key avoiding stuffs about it for the time being u.u;;
(and doing pretty good at it too, though I have caught some stuff here n there /shrug

I'd thought you'd pick Litten since he's a wrestling cat. Unfortunately, Pokébank compatibility with Sun and Moon will only be enabled in January.

So...moving most of my pokemon to the bank was a complete waste of time?

I do love the concept, but the design just seems kind of lacking. I'm not feeling it as much as I should.
Spoiler! :
For what it's worth I'll pick Litten regardless of whether it finds itself a main spot on my team or not. Maybe I'll get attached enough to keep it around.

I guess it'll be a while before I can transfer the brunt of my boxed Pokemon but I'm sure I can still bring over one or two the old fasioned way with my spare 3DS.



*EDIT*
Been hearing talk of even regular system-to-system trading not being available between XYORAS and Sun/Moon. Hope that's not true because I finally decided on making Aron my defacto starter, but if not I guess I'll fall back on Litten.
Although I've been more and more tempted to go water starter. That third form is just too cool, especially the water Spirit Bomb Z-Move.

So anyone have anything fun to report or is everyone too busy to post? I've been making slooow progress, (particularly thanks to having to restart after hours of playing. Don't ask.) but it's still really fun so far.

I made an impulsive last-minute decision to pick Popplio for my starter. There's no X/Y trading so I can't get an Aron or any other stuff until January anyway.
I'm really impressed with the variety of Pokemon you can catch so early in the game, though. It's gonna be fun putting together story teams with this many options.

I also rolled a Mystery Gift Munchlax with a perfect fucking Speed IV, (according to the IV calculator for Gen VI over on Serebii, and at level 5, so taken with a grain of salt.)
That's completely useless and it has a neutral nature, so it's not going to excel at anything useful via that either, but I was laughing way too hard to re-roll. The fastest Snorlax.

If that makes you feel better, you can scan QR codes to get a chance to catch, say, a Charmander. Yoink.

Yeah, been keeping an eye on the Island Scan. It's good stuff.

I like how they brought back the Gen V exp calculation (or some permutation of it).
