Pokemon Yellow VS Sun/Moon

Pokemon yellow had the best rival. I mean you could really hate him for who he is as a person. Just when you meet him he acts like a jerk, as many pokemon players have nicknamed him. He has an entitled attitude - he throws a fit for not getting the pokemon sooner from his dad, Prof. Oak and when he loses he blames it on the Pokemon (even in the anime, Gary is seen to only take Pokemon with best iv's and ev's and ditch the weak pokemon such as charmander- abandoning it in the rain).
So this gives us, the players some emotion to start with- we really hate this douchebag. Oh and I almost forgot, he even tells us that he will tell his sister to not give us the town map!
Subtleities like these make the game more interesting. Another example of a witty subtelity is the random guy telling us he likes shorts cause they're comfy.

The Bad Guys- Team Rocket called us nicknames that were quite demeaning, this made the game a bit more fun to play. Also, they'd pop up in search of the fossils early on in the game. What I'm saying is that they had engagement present with us gamers since the start and none of that ORAS crap (dont get me wrong, I did like the bad guys in ORAS, its just that I dont remember any solid introduction or continuity in the game) with that being said I cant really say that Yellow had better villains because when the ORAS villains were introduced it did get interesting.

The puzzles- who else took a while to figure out that you had to go to Pokemart for Oak's parcel? or take a while in the viridian forest, or maybe even finding their way to Bill's place? These mind games made the game a whole lot more interesting and characters like Bill well contributed into making the game a great one.

Does knowing about the Forms and Z-moves ruin our experience of Sun and Moon? It should make us excited/hyped about what's to come but remember this- in the older games we did not have such things, we had long challenging battles in which we had to restart the game.

What am I excited about? Well I'd love to see those new abilities and moves that Nintendo has in store for us, I'm already a big fan of the ability Dazzling- which blocks priority moves! This is a gamechanger in the competitive world.

What would make this game on par with the first Gens? Look, all I want in this game is for there to be a good puzzle- i.e figuring out what to do, where to go, etc.  Great characters- the guys you talk to such as Bill. A douchebag rival- oh please make me hate him and not give me a love thy enemy like ORAS did. A hard game- If I do not have to restart the game, use potions or want to throw my 3DS out the window then it's not a gym battle.

Pokemon Sun And Moon

So, if youre deciding between which game to get and the legendary pokemon arent enough for you to decide, here's our fix-

If you prefer to play during daytime buy Pokemon Sun.
If you prefer nightime then Moon.

because the in game clock is such that if you say choose Pokemon Sun and choose to play at night, the gameplay will be dark but if you choose Moon and play at night the gameplay will have in game lights activated.

But Aron, I prefer to play day and night, what should I do?

Purchase both of them! Haha, if you still cant decide then go with the version youve always been picking. Did you buy Firered or Ruby? choose Sun. Did you buy Leafgreen or Pokemon White? choose Moon.

Pokemon GO speedcap

A recent update put a speed cap on Pokémon Go. Meaning? If you play while riding on the train or bus, you might want to find something else to do. 
The Mainichi Shimbun, one of Japan’s largest newspapers, reports that the update is global and that The Pokémon Company is not disclosing details about the speed cap. Moreover, it is not mentioned in the recent patch notes.
Prior to the update, it was easy to load up on items at PokéStops while taking public transportation. In Osaka, for example, if you rode on any of the above ground train lines, you’d pass a number of PokéStops and could spin out items. However, as of this morning, it’s no longer possible to do that while the train is moving, and players get a message instead telling them to wait momentarily.

Here are photos taken earlier today in Osaka with said message.
Obviously, this kind of ruins things if you live in Tokyo or Osaka or, you know, any place with lots of public transportation. Ditto if you are in a bus or a passenger in a car.
Players, obviously, are not happy as evident by Reddit threads the change has spawned (here and here, for example). Likewise, Facebook users on the game’s official page aren’t thrilled, either.
To make it up to players, it seems, another new update gives out more items at PokéStops—at least, temporarily.
This comes as Pokémon Go players have not only crashed into schools but have even killed people. A recent study showed playing Pokémon Go while driving is more prevalent than you’d hope. No doubt the speed cap aims to prevent those tragedies. That, and it was always meant to be a game played while walking...
