I'm absolutely loving the new games. I got both versions and currently have 66 hours of playtime in Moon alone.

Edit: There was a mini rant here, but I removed it, because I don't want to dampen the fun. Razz These numbers are fantastic. This means they've nearly sold twice as much as XY, right?

I'm super-delighted of Pokémon Sun and Moon's titanic success! Very Happy The huge changes to the adventure structure and increased difficulty in battles really added to the excitement!

I got Sun as amazons sold it for 35€. It´s quite good but boy is it bloated with feature creep.

"Feature creep?" What's wrong with having more detail? Confused

XY sold somewhere around 13.7 million copies. This could potentially end up being the first generation since Diamond and Pearl that outsells its predecessor.
