The Battle Tree—Where Strong Opponents Await
Somewhere in the Alola region, you’ll find the Battle Tree: a place where those Trainers who have completed their island challenge—or who are strong enough to have done so—battle one another. All of the Trainers you can encounter at the Battle Tree are strong. It seems you might even encounter two battle prodigies from the Kanto region...
The Pokémon League
In the regions that have served as the setting for your adventures in the Pokémon series so far, the ultimate stage for battle has always been a place called the Pokémon League.
The Pokémon League is where the Elite Four—four Pokémon Trainers with powerful Pokémon partners—and the Champion, who reigns as the top of all Trainers, await challengers. A challenger who defeats the Elite Four and the Champion will be hailed as the new Champion of the Pokémon League.
In the Alola region, the setting of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, there is no Pokémon League yet—but it seems that there are plans to construct one on the peak of a certain mountain.
After the growth you achieve through completing the island challenge, will the day come when you also take on the Pokémon League to become the strongest Pokémon Trainer?

This is fun. I'm almost embarrassed to admit that, but I'm enjoying myself quite a bit. I was a hardcore D&D nerd as a kid (I was any one of the kids from Stranger Things) and knew all the stats of every creature from the Monster Manuals. This game appeals to that same part of me. Run around, collect things, max stats, analyze battles, try strategies, etc.
Since I've not had prior experience with Pokemon games, I can't compare this to previous versions. I will say that much of the dialogue is geared towards younger players (not surprisingly) and can be a little silly. I turn off my brain when that comes along and go with it. If you've not played Pokemon before, I can't guarantee this is the best game to get started with, but it has been an easy one for me to get started with and I'm having fun.
First off, you don't have Pokemon Gyms like every other game. You go through trials which, surprisingly, it pretty different that just going somewhere and defeating someone that is waiting for you. Your rival isn't really a rival since you are always ahead of him. And many of the Pokemon have taken on different types and traits because they have evolved on separate islands. So, many of the story elements of this Pokemon game is different.
There are also a few practical differences. Little things improve the overall experience such as pressing Y to throw a Pokeball, or being able to take care of your Pokemon's status effects and effectively heal them without having to use a potion or go to a Pokecenter. Also, the ability to pet and take care of your Pokemon that they introduced in X and Y is back and although mostly useless (except for small things like getting extra experience, or stopping your Pokemon from fainting because they "love you") you can't help but get a little more attached to the little critters.
As you can expect from Nintendo or Game Freak Pokemon Sun is a fun little romp through a new land with new creatures.
Bikes and HMs have been replaced by the riding system, which is fantastic. No more needing to take up move slots or carry around an HM bitch. The riding gear makes you look like a doofus however.
Clothing has returned, which I like.
OP exp share has returned, which I have mixed feelings about.
Pokemon can be made more friendly which can cause then to remove status effects and score critical hits in battles. I don't know if this applys to online battles.
Some great music, especially for team skull.
Overall pretty good! Like the way things are moving!
