It looks pretty nice, trainer customization is fun and I like a lot of the Pokemon you can catch in this game. Everything else kinda sucks, though.
It's incredibly slow, not even just the beginning, multiple moments felt like they dragged on for way too long, especially the trip to the Aether Foundation after the third island.
They also locked my favorite behind post-game, awful.
6/10
competitive is sick though i love defense mons and i love toxapex/celesteela

So basically they split a third version into two games for no reason but didn't add enough new stuff (removed some in some cases) to make them actually better than the originals. This really is just Sun & Moon with a weird alien subplot. The story is probably worse overall though, since they just skipped some important bits with Lillie and Lusamine, therefore leaving them both underdeveloped without the context on SuMo. Also, they added a trial for Mina, which by all accounts should have been there from the very start, and Victory Road isn't pathetic anymore. Other than that, not a lot has changed, and this feels quite half-assed.

a saga ultra sun/moon é a mais underated da frânquia, esse foi um dos 3 únicos jogos que eu REALMENTE e repito REALMENTE me diverti jogando.
Eu não precisei pular dialogo, nada, eu só me diverti, e essa experiência é única pra franquia, foda

Honestly very underappreciated, It's objectively better than Sun and Moon as a stand alone game because of the additional content. Competitive Pokémon was probably at its peak while this game was the latest one yet so it also holds a lot of good memories for me (Last gen with the National Dex ;-; ).

I like wrestlers, not in that way, well sometimes but that isn't the point

This is a weird one, kind of a "why did they make this." Knowing how much Black and White 2 did with the Unova region and how excellent those games were really downgrade Ultra Sun / Ultra Moon, which as others have said is little more than a new coat of paint. However, with Gamefreak not being too keen on putting out games that have actual challenge to them, I think Ultra Sun at least has that unique aspect to it.

Wormhole content was fun, but this just didn't warrant its existence beyond that. Feels like lazy DLC content rather than a wholly separate experience to Sun and Moon.

It's sun with a worse story but a significantly better difficulty curve and much more interesting fights

one of the better games in the series

I fucked the characterization out of Lusamine

Çok karışıktı yarıda bırakmıştım.

I honestly don't get people who like the original game better because this one just has so much more content and things to do and pokemon to catch

bro they released the same game twice and made it worse

Did not fix the problems of its predecessor. A pretty lame second game all in all as well. I think this time I did make it to totem #2 but no further.

Tenía mono de pokémon y a este no le había dado, además, quería completar la pokédex de mi partida del Luna y aproveché para conseguirme los que me faltaban en su contraparte.
En lo personal, la diferencia entre los Sol/Luna y sus versiones Ultra son mínimas, no merecería hacerte con las demás versiones si ya disfrutaste de Alola en primer lugar. Apenas una especie de DLC del Team Rocket, una pokédex más completa y una movida con los ultraentres (hay más) y los putos ultraumbrales, que menos mal que le cambié el control, porque vaya chusta.
Por otro lado, me gustaría reivindicar lo bueno que me parecen estas entregas. El viaje por el archipiélago que conforma la región de Alola me parece de lo más original de la saga, añadiendo un toque de frescor en algo tan encorsetado como es Pokémon.
Se eliminan los gimnasios y se pasan pruebas. Combates contra pokémon dominantes y los kahuna, que empiezan a tener un rol en la historia más importante, cosa que se desarrolla mejor en la entrega posterior (Escudo/Espada) y que ya vimos algo de ello en Blanco/Negro.
Las rutas son más pequeñas y lineales, con menos secretos y son muy parecidas entre sí. Muchas veces quieres ir a un sitio y no recuerdas en qué isla está por lo parecidas que son. Digamos que le falta una pizca de magia en este aspecto y la saga solía ofrecerlo, pero va decayendo. En especial el tema de los secretitos. Por suerte las monturas (todo un acierto para no ir con un pokémon en el equipo con las MO de turno para avanzar en zonas) da juego a volver a explorar las zonas con idea de encontrar las MT o algunos pokes más jodidos, como los Tapus o los UltraEntes.
En lo personal, esta pokédex es de mis favoritas. No añaden un gran número de nuevos pokémon, pero los que hay me molan bastante tanto en diseño como en jugabilidad, con ataques únicos, habilidades y estrategias para el competitivo interesantes. Además, son consecuentes con el lugar donde se hallan, siendo muy interesante el entender porqué este pokémon está aquí y qué relación tiene, por ejemplo, Corsola con Toxapex o Slowking con Oranguru. Mola que de verdad notes un mundo vivo con relaciones, pero esto se pisa un poco a sí mismo al no ver las interacciones de manera directa, ya que los pokémon aparecen de forma aleatoria como venía siendo natural en la saga.
Me ha resultado divertido y, si quieres tomártelo como un reto, puedes ponerte tus reglas para darle una miaja más de profundidad y así ver que realmente, algunos combates tienen una mente pensante detrás. Pero sí es cierto que, por contraparte, los npc típicos que te batallan son una decepción en muchísimos casos, con 1-2 pokes de un nivel alto pero aún en su primera o segunda línea evolutiva... Siendo un instakill por tu parte al empezar.
Me ha divertido bastante, ha sido un enganche desde que lo he cogido y eso que ya disfruté el Luna en su momento que es prácticamente el mismo juego. Ha servido para quitarme un poco el gusanillo de Pokémon que tenía y de paso, para completarme la pokédex, alternándolos y teniendo momentos de captura con momentos de historia.
Después del desastre que supuso para mi el X/Y, esto fue un paso adelante. Bien es cierto que es algo casual, pero creo que lo bueno de Pokémon es que tú mismo puedes ponerte los retos que consideres para subirle una miaja la dificultad y yo lo he gozado como un crío, dándole unas 38 horas muy difrutonas. Le metería un 8.8.

Pokemon Ultra Sun is the absolute worst Pokemon game. A bad game not only by Pokemon standards, but by game standards in general. The entire game is a tutorial until the end, not exaggerating. I've never played a game that holds your hand as much as this and completely prevents the player from exploring. What's the point of playing an RPG that restricts the player solely to the main storyline?? Just a complete lack of depth, not only in story or character development, but in gameplay and every other aspect. Such a shame because I'm a huge fan of the unique Hawaiian-inspired Alolan region. Some of its exclusive regional pokemon are pretty cool too. I got to the elite four and, without ever battling them, abandoned the game out of spite. I have never been so disappointed with a game.

There was no reason there needed to be TWO "3rd versions", after B2W2 did sequels they should have never gone back to that idea. S&M felt incomplete but had an ok story, the Ultra games with their new story elements throw out any potential S&M originally had.

SInceramente me esperaba algo mucho peor, el concepto de los mismos Pokémon de kanto pero versión Alola me parecía poco original, pero, con el paso del tiempo les fui agarrando cariño y viendolas como un Pokémon completamente nuevo y no un reciclado con colores distintos, la historia es meh, como la mayoría de los juegos de esta saga. Por otro lado, me hizo falta la mecánica de las megaevoluciones, algo que me había encantado de esta generación, tengo entendido que se pueden utilizar, pero es algo más del postgame. En general es un buen juego, logra enganchar y divertir, eso sí, hay partes en la historia SUMAMENTE pesadas que sinceramente me hubiese gustado poder saltarme.

I prefer the original sun and moon's plot more- I don't like what they did with lusamime in this one, it feels nasty given they tried to make her more redeemable in a way. And overall the story feels slightly butchered and attempted to be put back together in this one.
But gameplay wise this kne is more of a challenge and has some more features + new ultra beasts & forms, new post game and so on. But somehow has more handholding and the surfing minigame is a bit if a requirement at least the first time. So i feel like its up to personal tastes in what one likes when it comes to what edition to play.
The story and characters matter a bit more to me than some features i barely use/are mostly post game so its not nearly as replayable for me

Can't speak to the quality of the original Pokemon Sun, but I personally quite like Ultra Sun. I think it's due to a variety of factors, like better characters than most Pokemon games, the fun setting of Alola, great Pokemon designs, and finally getting rid of HMs. Admittedly, it might have the worst pacing of any Pokemon game, but I'd rather take this game's slowness instead of how barebones Pokemon Y was any day.
My team: Decidueye, Vikavolt, Mudsdale, Golisopod, Bewear, and Alolan Muk

Really enjoyed this one actually, felt fresh with its take on gyms as island challenges and multiple islands instead of 1 continent. Enjoyed the nice touch of cosmic themes in there as well with ultrabeasts, portals and necrozma. Could have been more challenging than it was however.

It gave Toxapex Knock Off.
Sure, the story was made worse, Ultra Necrozma is a dumb difficulty spike, and I don't like the battle themes as much compared to the original, but does that really matter in the cosmic sense?
Meanwhile, this game's essence is present whenever that stupid starfish takes whatever item your Pokemon actually needed off its hands. And that will outlive anything else this mediocre retread of gen 7 has to offer.
Great for shiny hunting, though.

Like its original, timezone differences are very valuable and it's the original but with more content and more challenging and fun battles.

wish i got ultra moon but this is a goated experience

This would legit be the best Pokemon game if you could skip the cutscenes and endless dialogue

i know it has its issues (pls no more cutscenes) but it was honestly really fun and had some great settings, i enjoyed it a lot!
