I went into Pokemon Moon with high expectations, and came out very dissatisfied. Worse, I am concerned with this game means for the franchise moving forward. Pokemon Moon takes the worst features of the series and magnifies them: X&Y\'s overuse of cinematic camera, D/P/Pt\'s unskippable tutorials and cutscenes. It then bogs down battles with the terrible call for help feature, limits water exploration in a region based on Hawaii (which features plenty of water exploration in real life!) and dumps a mess of a story rife with Unfortunate Implications about Alolan culture and one of the worst examples of Purity Sue (in the form of Lillie) in Pokemon yet. The whole game is not terrible. Apart from the scourge that is Lillie upon the game, Hau and Gladion are both interesting characters and Kukui is a fun-loving professor. The Trial Captains are interesting characters with diverse designs and interests. However, the game\'s problems vastly overshadow the rest of the game. I would not recommend this game.
