 3DS WALKTHROUGH

What's the difference between Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon?

We'll tell ya
Product: Pokemon Sun/Pokemon Moon | Publisher: The Pokemon Company | Format: 3DS
 
Haven't decided which version of Pokemon Sun and Moon to pick up yet?

The games are almost identical, but subtle differences may make you choose one game over the other.

Prefer to play Pokemon at night? Then you might want to get Moon. A big fan of Passimian? Get Sun, yo.

Pokemon

Buzzwole

Out in the wild, only Sun players will find Vulpix and Ninetales, Cottonee and Whimsicott, Rufflet and Braviary, Passimian, and Turtonator.

Meanwhile, Moon players will find Sandshrew and Sandslash, Petilil and Lilligant, Vullaby and Mandibuzz, Oranguru, and Drampa.

In terms of fossils, Sun players will get the fossils that lead to Cranidos and Rampardos, and Tirtouga and Carracosta.

Moon players will have fossils that turn into Shieldon and Bastiodon, and Archen and Archeops.

The second ultra beast will be Buzzwole on Sun and Pheromosa on Moon, and the fourth ultra beast will be Kartana on Sun and Celesteela on Moon.

And, obviously, you can only get the beasty on the box in the correct game. So Sun players will find Solgaleo and Moon players will get their hands on Lunala.

Time

Night

Pokemon Sun matches the real time of when you play. So if it's day outside, it will be day in the game. But Moon is off by 12 hours meaning it will be nighttime in Alola during the day.

Some Pokemon encounters and various events are tied to the time of day.

Story events

Totem

The story is almost identical but there are a few changes: the Totem Pokemon for the first challenge is Gumshoos in Sun and Ratticate in Moon, for example.

Also, after finishing their trials, you can meet up with and battle Kiawe in Sun, or Mallow in Moon.

Clothes and Festival Plaza

Festival

Some clothes will be available in red, yellow, orange, pink, and beige in Sun. The same clothes can be green blue, navy blue, purple, and grey in Moon.

There also different stores in the Festival Plaza. Find out what they sell over at Serebii.
