Pokémon's two upcoming titles, Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, have been the source of a lot of excitement in the Pokémon community. With new Pokémon and details about the game being released every few weeks, fans can hardly wait for the November 18 release date. But one of the most exciting new features was just announced: the ability for players to spot and take pictures of wild Pokémon in the game.
If you are a Pokémon fan who grew up with a Nintendo 64 system, you probably have fond memories of playing Pokémon Snap, a game that featured the beloved monsters rendered in 3D for the first time. The premise of the game was simple: instead of catching and battling Pokémon, you snap pictures of them in the wild with a camera to earn points. While Pokémon Snap was re-released for the Wii's Virtual Console -- as well as the Wii U's Virtual Console -- Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will be the first to include this feature in a handheld game.
The game will also give players the option to caption and share the photos they take, and other players can like them with a "thumbs up." The ability to share photos with other players in real time is something that the original Pokémon Snap was not capable of.
In addition to the exciting new feature, several new Pokémon and forms unique to the Alola region are also being revealed. The most recent announcement reveals new Pokémon "Type: Null" and "Jangmo-o." New Alola forms include Raticate, now as a Ghost/Normal Type with the ability Gluttony/Hustle. Additionally, it was revealed that Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon are set twelve hours apart (when it's daytime in Sun, it's nighttime in Moon, and vice versa), and events will be triggered differently in each game.
