I've been done with Pokemon Sun for a while now. Had such a great story line. AI was actually difficult. But honestly, screw the Battle Tree AI. So much hax it's not even fun.
I soo agree with all your statements. I loved the storyline, enough to consider getting a Powersaves so that I can play it again without losing my save file (or at least I *think* that's what it does). And yup, I grinded enough such that I didn't have problem with the fights but I love that they actually put that in. And lastly, definitely agree with the Battle Tree thing. I'm probably still gonna build a team of good pokemon and go for it sooner or later still though. Most likely.
@Arnie Love your sketches too! The Houndoom looks appropriately menacing.
I caught a Tauros in Pokemon Go and fell in love in Pokemon Moon so that's a thing
It does lend itself rather easily to falling in love with it, doesn't it?
And now with my parents back from vacation, I am playing Pokemon Go with them again. It helps to have the Christmas/New Year thing going on too, haha.
On my end, besides the Pokemon Go stuff, I have also been having fun breeding pokemon, and then giving them out. Many of the pokemon I bred were originally obtained from such giveaways in the first place too, so it has the good feeling of receiving and then giving it forward. Was particularly fun to do that during the Christmas break period!
