There are plenty of other little tweaks and additions to the game, many of which will go unnoticed to all but the most fervent Pokémon fan. For the newcomers to the series, those who may have had their Pokéinterest piqued by the excellent Pokémon Go, it is simply enough to say that Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon are the best Pokémon games available on the 3DS. Packed full of content and so much fun to play, there really is no reason for new Pokémon fans not to pick up one of the games. For those who played Sun or Moon, it may be too soon to jump into the version 2.0 games. But then, you know you will play them eventually, so you might as well start now.

I was fine with the lack of of mid-gen Pokemon expansions over the past few years, but I’m glad Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon exist as Pokemon’s swan song on the Nintendo 3DS. These upgraded versions not only have everything I enjoyed about Sun and Moon, but augments them in important ways by making small but meaningful changes to the story, expanding the selection of available Pokemon, and even making some small tweaks to the world. Unless you played through both Sun and Moon extensively and have already collected every Legendary Pokemon, it’s easy to recommend to any Pokemon fan.

There's no doubt about it: Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon is the definitive Generation VII Pokemon experience. But if you've already become Alola's first Champion, it may be a little hard to justify the purchase of an Ultra game, depending on your priorities. If you thought the plot of Sun and Moon got in the way of the rest of the game, you're likely not going to enjoy all the added scenes in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. For everyone else though, the fleshed out plot, new content, and more will be enough to justify this purchase. Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are the perfect swan songs for the Pokemon series on the 3DS.

Having reached what amounts to the “end game” of modern Pokemon titles,it becomes clear that Ultra Moon is easily the better experience when compared to the original jaunt through Alola. Nothing becomes worse, and there are enough upgrades to side stories and the addition of some new Pokemon to the game that it is still well-worth playing, even for those who have completed Sun and Moon already. While some more story extras and a refined narrative would not have gone amiss, Pokemon Ultra Moon is still the best Pokemon experience to date. If you’ve already tried Sun and Moon, this is worth a look, but if you haven’t experienced any of what Alola has to offer yet, Pokemon Ultra Moon is an absolute must-own that stands as the best handheld Pokemon title since the originals. With a Pokemon Switch title in the works, this could be the last time the series is tailored specifically for the Nintendo 3DS, and it’s the send-off it deserves.

Si vous avez raté les épisodes Soleil et Lune, ces nouvelles éditions d'une des sagas phares de Nintendo disposent de suffisamment d'atouts pour vous convaincre de sauter le pas. Les possesseurs des éditions précédentes y trouveront aussi quelques nouveautés bienvenues, mais à l'intérêt plus limité pour les joueurs en attente de renouvellement profond. Ces derniers devront ainsi passer outre les 20 ou 25 premières heures de l'aventure, qui restent extrêmement proches de celles de Soleil et Lune, avant de découvrir les nouveautés scénaristiques dans la dernière ligne droite de l'histoire. Le Pokédex plus fourni et un final généreux en fan service, couplé à quelques petits ajouts bienvenus, suffisent toutefois à faire d'Ultra-Soleil et Ultra-Lune des épisodes solides dans la lignée de leurs héritiers directs.

Attention, si vous vous attendez à la suite de Soleil et Lune, vous risquez d’être fortement déçu. Il s’agit ici ni plus ni moins d’une version complémentaire déclinée en deux. Reprenant l’intégralité de la quête originale en ajustant quelques passages ou en ajoutant davantage de contenu vers la fin de l’aventure et au-delà, les versions Ultra-Soleil et Ultra-Lune ne présentent toutefois pas suffisamment de nouveautés pour faire replonger les joueurs qui ont poncé les deux volets antérieurs, à moins de vouloir à tout prix rejouer peu ou prou au même jeu. Néanmoins, ceux qui ont fait l’impasse sur Soleil et Lune ont tout intérêt à se diriger vers ces aventures améliorées, un peu plus jolies, avec un Pokédex plus fourni et un postgame plus travaillé. Malgré la redite, le titre n’en reste pas moins calibré, certes linéaire mais rythmé, proposant une aventure dépaysante mise en valeur par le travail fourni sur les environnements et l’ambiance sonore.
