Postcards from Alola – Pokémon Sun and Moon Tips #1


The Alolan region of the Pokémon Sun and Moon games is a place where all kinds of different Pokémon live and where all kinds of adventures can be had. Now that a lot of Trainers have set their sights on conquering the region I have taken it upon myself to share some of my knowledge and experience with those of you just moving to the region.

Tip #1: Have Fun!

It has been the same since the beginning, when Pokémon Trainers move to a new region right away they get overwhelmed by all the new sights and of course Pokémon. Being the good Trainers that they are, they start coming up with strategies for battle and which Pokémon they want to use on the competitive teams. This isn’t a bad thing necessarily, but sometimes Pokémon Trainers can be so focused on this that they miss out on the fun.  So my first tip is pretty basic but it’s something that should not be forgotten. When you put in that game for the first time and you start you journey in Alola (or really any Pokémon game for that matter) don’t get wrapped up in worrying yourself about IV’s, EV’s, tactics, status, and all the rest. Don’t even necessarily worry about who’s going to be on your play through team. Just have FUN with the experience, take your time, see all the sights, play through the story, and catch as many Pokémon as you can. If you see a Pokémon that you want to try out on your team then do it. Don’t worry about putting your Pokémon back in the PC box, particularly in Pokémon Sun and Moon because you have the Poké Pelago this time around. Isle Eveup is an island in the Poké Pelago where you can level up your Pokémon. So if you want to come back to that Pokémon you can and it will be waiting for you and ready to go without having to grid its levels. Pokémon games are meant for you to have fun and enjoy, especially in Alola where all the people and Pokémon are as chill as can be. So hang loose and have fun!
