game release date for 3DS:


Pokémon Sun for 3DS is another role-playing game from the popular series developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo. This is a twin production to the Pokémon Moon. The only difference between the two are the available Pokemons.

You assume the role of a trainer of the titular Pokémon. Your objective is to travel through the world in search of new creatures – catch them, train them, and pit them against other Pokémon in turn-based combats.


The game is set in a world well-known from the previous instalments. The land combines elements of our reality and fantasy aspects. You assume the role of a young Pokémon trainer, who dreams of becoming the best of his kind in the whole world.


Pokémon Sun for 3DS follows the classic gameplay of its predecessors. It is a role-playing game in which you travel through the world filled with quests. However, the game primarily focuses on the Pokémon training. You need to catch them, train them, and pit them against other trainers’ creatures in a turn-based combat.

Technical aspects

The game utilises good looking 3D graphics in a cartoon style. The Pokémon Bank allows for importing Pokémon from previous parts of the series – Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, Pokémon Yellow, Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y – but only those released on 3DS.
