Horrible story! Mean-spirited and just wrong. Alola is so cursed! Definitely NOT safe for kids!
“Sun and Moon”!? Misleading titles, for there is no uplifting light - only cruel darkness - in these sorry excuses for Pokémon games... Alola is cursed! Generation 7 is absolutely the worst, and this game is so disturbing, mean-spirited, annoying, and downright creepy! Sends a very bad message to kids! Parents beware! NOT “safe for kids” at all!
Why do people say the story is “fun”???
Was this Pokémon’s sad attempt at sci-fi!? More like a psychedelic horror! Terribly dark and depressing! Felt like I was forced to watch a Yu-Gi-Oh anime rather than playing a classic “Pokémon” game, to be honest.
The “story” in this game was so annoying and actually painful to play through - I had to stop playing due to disgust and sadness after the what the putrid villain Lusamine does to poor Guzma!
Definitely NOT a game for children - or anyone - despite being cleverly designed to darkly “empower” kids by preaching to them that they are “equal to adults” and to disrespect their elders.
Certain characters in this game, the honest adults, like Guzma and Faba, are bullied, and downright misrepresented.
The game has a very poorly-written one-track story that makes entirely no sense for the sake of drama, gives you NO freedom, and forces the player to side with evil (Lillie and her villain relatives). There is no option to side with the truly good characters, Guzma and Faba!
If you just want to have fun collecting and training your own team of Pokémon critters like in previous games (like I did), forget it. Every five minutes there’s a stultifying and disturbing cutscene hyper-focusing on the Mary-Sue “Lillie”. It forces you to endure endless mindless dialogue and upsetting images, and encourages sympathy for this kid villain and her cruel family members.
Worst Pokémon games EVER - and I thought X & Y were bad! So dark and preachy, needless drama and cruelty. I do NOT recommend this abomination of a “game” to anyone - unless you enjoy being lead around like a lost puppy by annoying, entitled kids, sympathizing for villainous characters, and bullying depressed heroes who speak the truth but aren’t respected...
