Pokemon Sun and Moon’s first global event is shaping up to be a failure

Pokemon Sun and Moon's first global event is going to wrap up in a few days, and when it does, it will end in failure. For those of you who missed the news, Nintendo and Game Freak launched this global event back on November 29, challenging players around the world to catch 100 million Pokemon by the time the event ends.

Pokemon Sun and Moon: How to get the Shiny Charm and catch shiny Pokemon

One of the coolest things about Pokemon Sun and Moon is the random chance of encountering a shiny Pokemon.

Pokemon Sun and Moon Review: The finest Pokemon games in years

Pokemon Sun and Moon Review: The finest Pokemon games in years

Pokemon games are nothing if not formulaic. Pokemon Red and Blue were released in North America 18 years ago, and subsequent games have largely felt like iterations on the structure of those initial titles.

Pokemon Sun and Moon may move to Nintendo Switch with enhanced edition

Back when Nintendo Switch was first revealed, one of the major questions I had was about the fate of Pokemon. Would it make the jump to the Switch or would it stay on the 3DS? When Nintendo revealed that it will keep producing the 3DS even after the Switch launches, I thought maybe the question had been answered, but now new reports are suggesting that Pokemon will be on the Switch after all.
