Tech’s 8 biggest winners of 2016

The Best Games of 2016: Pokemon Sun and Moon

You may not know this about me, but Pokemon and I go way back.

I wasn't the only one either, and in the past 20 years, Pokemon has become as much of a cultural sensation as Superman or Mickey Mouse. In that time, though, the series hasn't strayed much from its tried-and-true formula. That all changed with Pokemon Sun and Moon.
