The gym puzzles might be thrown out the window in SuMo, but the Totem Battles are actually an interesting change, and if you dont bring a hard counter they can be pretty challenging in Ultra.

The story is kinda bland and everything involving Aether is poorly written but the region is fun if you like tropical stuff. And youll either love your rival or hate his guts, it seems. Most people haye him, I think hes adorable.

... Black/White probably has the last interestong story in Pokemon though if thats what you want.

I'm going to get ORAS because it's Frankie of my favorite Pokemon game so I know for a fact that I'll like it and also because the Black Friday sale makes it cheaper than usual at GameStop

The series has barely changed since diamond and pearl. You'd just be wasting your money buying the same game

Good grief you can say that about just about every series or genre. Dragon Quest from one to nine all has an overhead world view, fghting mechanism is essentially the same with modfications. Platformers 99 ppercent all head in same direction and jumping over bottomless pits, platforms etc.

You play for the experience a new place to explore and see modifications to the system but taking comfort the core is still there.

Sun/Moon > X/Y > OR/AS

In my opinion of course. I haven’t played US/UM yet, but I’m hoping they’ll at least be better than OR/AS. None of them are bad games by any means, you really can’t go wrong picking any of them.

I’d say strike while the iron is hot and go for UltraSun or UltraMoon. I’ve heard good things and you may as well jump back in with something that people are actually talking about everywhere.

ORAS > XY > USUM > SM is my list from favorite to least favorite.

Listen to @GeneralVan (reference to tales of the abyss?), thats my order as well.
EDIT: well technically i haven't played ORAS yet but still.. XY is great though!

Haha nah. I never played a Tales game before. My name is just my YouTube name I thought of when I was like 10 lol.
But if you like RSE better than XY and SM, then ORAS is basically that in 3D.

BW2, HGSS, and Platinum are all pretty good. Sun and Moon are decent, USUM are easily better though
